Game Prediction Thread - USC vs Stanford TrojanHorse Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 4,963 Likes Received: 4,353 Sep 4, 2017 #1 The Basic Rules are as follows: *We will track predicted scores (one guess per person) and come up with a winner by 'least cumulative variance.' That is, the real variance of each team's guess added together. *We will apply the ’Cardinal and Gold’. Please use whole numbers only. Fractional numbers will be rounded by standard convention. *If two people have given the same score, then the first one that gave the score is the winner. Other than that, there could be co-champions. if two people have given different scores, but have the same cumulative variance. *If someone has two guesses in the same post, for humor or other purposes, I will use the first guess unless it is obvious that the 2nd one is the 'real' guess... so try to be clear. *Edits to posted scores will be allowed until game time, but as above if there is a duplicate, the time posted for the earlier guess will be the winner...so be careful. If an edit shows, then the time of the edit will be used. *If the least cumulative variance happens to pick the wrong winner, they will be awarded "Closest to the Pin,' but the overall winner must guess the winning team correctly. *A 'Most Wrong' Award will be given out for the guess with the largest cumulative variance. As long as the guesses are at least somewhat within reason. Nothing over 70 points scored for instance is probably reasonable for either team this week. *No more guesses or changes once kickoff begins.
