Resident Genius Week 1: For Those About To Rock, We Salute You!

Resident Genius Week 1: For Those About To Rock, We Salute You! 


Welcome to the 8th season of the Resident Genius contest for which I have been at the helm.

For those of you just tuning in, the premise is simple.  There are many quantifiable quantities in a football game.  Each week, I will ask you to guess the number of one of these quantities.  Anything and everything are in play.  Rushing yards, attempts, time of possession, penalties, etc.  I will do what I can to involve all league teams at least once, but sometimes it doesn't work that way.

Scoring is done in reverse order, with the closest guesses getting the lower scores.  The closest guess will get 1 point, the second closest 2 points, etc.  If you are the sole winner, you will get a score of -5.  Ties will be scored such that all involved will get the same score, but the next person will be the next true position (i.e. 3 people tie for 5th.  All involved in the tie will get 5 points, but the next closest score will be considered 8th place.)

Any appeals will be settled by me, and are final.  Bonuses and updates to the rules are done at the sole discretion of yours truly.

For those about to embark on this campaign of lunacy, we salute you!

We begin the 2014 campaign at Camden Yards in Baltimore.  The Ohio State Buckeyes head east to take on the legendary option offense of the US Naval Academy.  The Bucks are considered the second choice in the East, and there are a lot of unknowns about the Bucks.

Q: How many rushing yards will Ohio State surrender to Navy?

Deadline for guesses is Saturday, August 30 at 11 AM CDT.  Good hunting.

Your sports team will soon suffer swift defeat
That theory’s back by empirical evidence
We’re gonna grind up your guys into burger meat
Again, of course, we’re speaking in the figurative sense

When your team is winning be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing
