Prognosticating: Miami

By 11W Staff on September 7, 2010 at 2:57p
THE PENNANT FTWThe Pennant is strong.

Finally, another big game. And with that comes the obligatory 11W contest.

Those of you that have been around for a while know the rules, but if not, they're simple. Just comment with your prediction for the final score in Saturday's game against Miami and the closest pick to the actual score will win two t-shirts from the 11W shop.

The fine print:

  • Must be 18 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible — first come, first serve.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.

Good luck!

I say make a log of all entries as of 11:59 PM on the eve of gameday to avoid any edits afterwards.

Good point. I'll screenshot this before kickoff so we don't have anything fishy.

Geez Matt, don't be so pessimistic. If Miami hangs 30+ points on this defense...then this has to be the most overrated D ever.

Question on Predictions:  if the current trend holds and I am the only person to call for a Miami victory, I automatically win, regardless of how close I was on the score, correct?

Let the bullshit begin.

Getting it all kicked off is Pat Forde in his weekly "dash";

"Miami at Ohio State (7).

The hype: Both historically powerful programs flexed on Thursday in tune-up openers and enter the game ranked in the top 15.

The history: With the aid of a late and lousy penalty flag (8), the Buckeyes terminated the third phase of the Miami dynasty by shocking the Hurricanes in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl and winning the national championship. Miami hasn't been the same since, while Ohio State has been consistently very good."

Welcome to Buckeye City's picture

It should read something a little more like this (this coming from an unbiased non-eSECpn writer)...

The history: With the lousy non-calls in the 4th quarter (8) (Gamble catching the ball in bounds, and Gamble's out route to the sideline where a Miami DB found a fistful of Scarlet jersey in his hand), the Hurricanes were given all the breaks (no pun intended, Willie) to put the game into OT where they still fell short to a resilient Buckeye team.

What Would Woody Do?

Most agreeable prediction I've seen so far.

I'm not sure if Miami will score 6-7 or 10-13 though.

JakeBuckeye's picture

I think Ohio State will win by two possessions. I'm not sure of the score yet.

I just hope that TP can throw 2+ TD's and no INT's with a 60+ completion percentage. That would be the final reinforcement that he is for real when throwing the ball.

BUT... All of that = Gravy, because I just want a Buckeye win.
