Sunshine Pumper Challenge!

Have you been accused of being a sunshine pumper? How about a perpetual rain cloud? Ready to prove your critics wrong?

Introducing the Sunshine Pumper Challenge! Every week for the rest of the season, I will ask you all to predict various things about the upcoming game, based on what we know from all the games up to that point. Some things will stay the same every week, others will change. Before the game, I will create a scoring system that evaluates how realistic everyone's expectations were each week, and report back on who pumped sunshine, who was being a rain cloud, and who has the most realistic expectations. The goal here is to predict what your expectations really are, not your hopes or fears of what might happen.

I will keep a running total throughout the season so people can know how they did, and whether their expectations of the team are becoming more in line with reality. Feel free to participate any or all weeks.

So without further ado, please post your predictions for Auburn this week:

UGA points scored, Auburn points scored, UGA turnovers, Auburn turnovers, UGA sacks, UGA penalties, Number of QBs who throw a pass before halftime.

    I think Stet starts and then late first Q or second either D'Wan of JT comes in for a least 2 series.

    Penalties will be way down this week.

  • UgaXforPresidentUgaXforPresident Posts: 271 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    No, UGA QBs only. Also just to clarify, I do mean QBs, so WR passes and punt/kick fakes would not qualify.

    An average of all posts so far shows about 3 sacks as average and also as the modal response. I hope that is accurate and not overly optimistic.
