Prognosticating: Navy

By Chris Lauderback on August 28, 2014 at 3:05p
Guess the score. Win some swag.

It's almost here. The 239 day offseason is officially over in just two more sunrises. 

To celebrate the beginning of Ohio State's 125th football campaign, we're giving you a chance to show everyone how smart you are – and garner free swag in the process. 

If you're up to the challenge, leave a comment with your prediction for the final score of Saturday's clash with Navy. If you peg the score perfectly, or at least come closer than everyone else, you'll win the fresh Eleven Warriors trucker hat you see above. Did I mention this hat is sold out again?

And remember, YVAN EHT NIOJ.

The legalese: 

  • Must be 21 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible – first come, first serve.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.
  • Any comment edited after kickoff will be disqualified, regardless of the edit.

Why does Dublin have so many round-abouts? Because everyone in Dublin thinks they have the right-of-way.

^^^^ Haha, my thoughts exactly.

I don't know if I have to post my prediction in this reply or not, since I'd then have multiple posts on the board.

My prediction is Ohio State: 24  Navy: 16

They hate us cuz they aint us!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I couldn't help but think Birm and his lady friend broke up (empty hat picture).  I vote no picture of this trucker hat should ever appear with out the lady that made it famous.
