    Score Prediction Contest 2012 Spring Game

    SUMMARY POSTED Page __ Post ___ located here Link

    Welcome to the HuskerMax Score Predictions contest. You must be a registered user to participate.

    THE RULES, IN A NUTSHELL:
    1. Don't edit your post.
      . . . . . edited posts will be deleted. Make a new post instead.
    2. Submit your entry before kickoff.
      . . . . . entries time-stamped after kickoff will be deleted.

      . . . . . for complete rules and how winners are determined, click here.
    4. Use correct team designations.
      . . . . . RED for Red Team and WHITE for White Team


    Participants will NOT be notified if their entry is disqualified for failure to follow any of the rules.

    Please read this entire message carefully and completely to understand this contest and ensure your entry is valid.

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    1. Predict the final score of the game.
    2. Reply to this thread with your prediction.
    3. Use the correct team designations: NU for Nebraska, and ___ for _________.
    4. Do not edit your post after it is submitted or it will be disqualified. Tie-breakers are determined by the order of entry (earlier wins), and post-edit time stamps complicate that process. If you change your mind about your prediction, submit a new post, and your previous post(s) will be removed.
    5. Do not enter conversational posts on this thread, they will be removed.

    ENTRY SCORING AND WINNER SELECTION:
    The differences between the actual and predicted scores of each team are combined for your score. A lower number is better, and a perfect prediction gives a score of 0. The earliest entry with the best score is the Winner. Later entries with the same score are Co-Winners but will not receive a prize. 2nd place entries are awarded "2nd Team", 3rd place entries are awarded "Scout Team", and 4th place entries are awarded "Water Boy" status.

    SCORING EXAMPLE:
    Predicted final scores: NU 56 / UM 21
    Actual final score: NU 51 / UM 38
    UM difference: 21 - 38 = -17
    Absolute value of differences, combined: |5| + |-17| = 22
    Prediction score: 22

    The value of a commitment is slowly being deteriorated

    Full disclosure: I grew up in an era of Husker football when it was blasphemous for a coach to say he was "spooked" out of calling a run play. Of course, that was when hard-nosed running defined the program.

    It's difficult to establish a strong run game without firm resolve. Daily resolve. In too many instances — such as when Nebraska calls for passes on third-and-3 in four-down territory — a lack of commitment is evident.

    In life, it's important to know when to stop arguing with people - and simply let them be wrong.
