Official MUScoop Preseason Prediction Contest
« on: November 03, 2006, 02:33:48 PM »
Here's the deal... respond to thread with your predictions for the winner of each game.  The cut-off for entries will be tip of the preseason opener vs. Hillsdale on 11/10.  Changes to your picks can be made up to the tip-off of the first game but please send me a personal message.  The rules are pretty simple... one point for every correct game picked, most points at the end of regular season (3/3) wins the contest.  Ties will be broken by the predicting the final score (otal points) of the MU vs. Pitt game on 3/3.  I will try to provide updates after every game and I will also try to post the master spreadsheet once the season starts.  Currently, the prize is the bragging rights as the board's top preseason prognosticator (or luckiest)!  I'll see if there is something more attractive on EBay I can dig up.   ;D 

ONE MORE THING... PLEASE, PLEASE FOLLOW THE FORMAT FROM MY POST.  IF THE FORMAT IS NOT FOLLOWED, YOUR ENTRY MAY NOT BE COUNTED.

Just a quick note - this is NOT replacing the "original" prediction contest.  SoCalwarrior will still run that week to week. 

This is just a new contest we're trying out.  You'll probably want to do both.  If the same person manages to win both contests...well...I'll come up with some special honor for that!

Final record 26-5.  I can't believe I have them winning the first 17 games but Duke is not as strong this year and I think we can handle the rodents at home before UConn gives us a little payback.

Final record 26-5..  hated to pick mu losing at valpo but I think that might be the upset of the pre-conference season.. coming off a tough road tourney and possibly thinking ahead to the next big opponent (wisconsin) in a little less than 2 weeks away.

If we could make 3 of those 'Circus Shots' fall each game, I'd be willing to predict a perfect season.  :)


27-4 (13-3)

That's a BOLD Statement.  <----- So it that, I guess

-- BTW, man was that a pain in the butt to do.  Should have listed another column, since you don't really know what the 23rd game is, but you know you want to give MU the win over USF.

Maybe you do.  That's my upset special this year.  Headline will will Read "Marquette Gets Bulled Over."
