Prognosticating: Michigan State

By 11W Staff on September 26, 2012 at 6:45p

It's time for you to step up with your score prediction for the Michigan State game this weekend.

You know the routine by now. Simply leave a comment with your prediction of the final score for Saturday's game against Sparty. If you nail the score—or come closest—you'll get to name your shirt from the impressive collection at Eleven Warriors Dry Goods. Like the that beautiful flag you see to the right. Or a different shirt. Your call.

One lucky winner will have songs written about them, like Gravey, who knew that UAB would be a much, much closer game than just about anyone else.

The fine print:

  • Must be 18 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible — first come, first serve.
  • If Ohio State loses this game, there will be no contest winner, so adjust your predictions accordingly.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.

Good luck!

Major flaw, I start with 100 points 
-10 pts (If Ohio State loses this game, there will be no contest winner, so adjust your predictions accordingly) This only allows for homer picks for people to vote for OSU. Being subjective, I've seen a few people vote for Sparty to win and think peope should get rewarded for their guess despite the lost. 
The final result for predictions is 90 points which an A- at Ohio State. 
I guess I'll homer out and pic OSU to win 21-18. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

24-16 tOSU prevails by scoring 3 times in the first 5 minutes. Then Urban punts and plays D and the mental anguish builds for another week.

20-16, Buckeyes over Sparty. Late pick seals the deal. Bell hits them for 150+ in a loss.

38-31 OSU. Our offense wakes up and finally puts it together for a whole game. Our defense remains this year's defense.

OSU 19-15.  A few big plays and a couple timely turnovers allow us a TD and some FGs.   MSU gets a few long, sustained drives with the run game, but only manages a TD and 2 FGs, along with a safety when they pin us deep and bring down Hall in the end zone.

Braxton shows the nation that he is unstoppable, accounts for 350 yards of total offense, the defense can't tackle Bell, but he finds the end zone only once. Sparty Sparts, Bucks roll 38-10

BuckeyeFanInBoulder's picture

LBs show up in unforseen fashion and join the D-Line to shut Sparty running game down, helping the secondary get a couple INTs and set up easy scoring opportunities.  We show a few wrinkles on said easy scoring opportunities and almost score as many points against the MSU D as we did against UAB.  Musberger uses Braxtastic for the first time.  Bo and Bret pee their jorts.  There is much rejoicing.

Ohio State's offense comes alive and it's the signature game for Braxton Miller.  Defense shines and scores 3 touchdowns in the game.  Michigan State fans are crying in the stands as Brutus completes 55 pushups!

Unless I missed it, I don't see 14-13.  Good guys, of course.

Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer?  It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV).  It's a little sweet for me though.  Two is my limit.
