Prognosticating: Miami

By Jason Priestas on September 17, 2011 at 6:00a

Uh... yeah, so this contest should have probably gone up earlier in the week but the adjustment to fatherhood has been a little trickier than one would think.

At any rate, this is your first score-guessin' contest of the 2011 football season. The entry with the closest prediction for the final score of tonight's game will win a shirt from 11W Dry Goods. Like the lovely design featured on the right. Or something else. Your call.

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!

are you throwing in a Buckeye safety, missed extra point and a made FG, or 3 FG's? Whatever happens...I hope you are wrong, Brother.

24-6, I was pretty close man.  I didn't want to be right either.

All the guys on BTN picked Miami and mentioned how bad Ohio state looked versus Toledo last week.

Soooooo Miami didn't look bad in their loss versus Maryland??

Wow, just wow.

The Boise State game was closer than the score last night.  Does anyone feel better about last week now?

Last night's game came out exactly as I thought.  Toledo played well but the short week after they played so well in the shoe came back to bite them.  Boise had 2 weeks to prepare, and they looked fresh for the whole game.  Toledo obviously had no legs left in the second half.  And, they could easily have scored at least 21 more points it they were on their game, don't drop passes and don't fumble inside the 10.  The game in the shoe was close, but OSU could easily have scored 21 more points if Bauserman connects with his wide open receivers like Moore did last night, not to mention Smith holding on to the f'ing ball.  However if's and but's get you nothing.  It still goes down as a win for Boise, a win for OSU, and 2 losses for Toledo. 

I just love the way every comentator is not giving the Buckeyes a chance in Miami based on the score from last night.  Could be so, but we shall see...  

buckeyedude's picture

I predicted Toledo would lose by less than 14 points last night. They started out well.  Boise State has a much more dynamic offense than Ohio State.

Johnny Utah leads the Buckeyes to victory on the final drive. Buckeyes 24-21. He'll then join the FBI, learn to surf, and track down a group of bank robbers called The Ex-Presidents.


Does anyone think our kicker will actually make a fucking field goal today? If not, or if he misses one, we probably lose.

I'm going to feel dirty winning something while predicting Ohio State to lose, but its going to be Miami - 23, Ohio State 16. Makes me barf a little in my mouth to do it.
