Times-Union Running Score Prediction Contest


Recommended Posts

I read the Times-Union today, and I saw that the paper is conducting a contest where a $100 gift card is given to somebody that accurately predicts the score of this Saturday's game. On the day of the game the Times-Union will print all of the predictions that it receives, and the tie-breaker will be the combined points of Haddix and Jamar.

 

I think this is an interesting way to get the region involved, and I wanted to know if anyone is interested in a UAlbany community side-bet. If there is interest we could play for an ale of choice at the Across the Street Pub before the next home game, or something like that.

 

For me:

UAlbany 73

Siena 66

 

Haddix (14) + Jamar (22) = 36 combined points

 

As for the Times-Union contest, hopefully a lot of UAlbany supporters will make their presence in the Capital Region shown.

 

Of course, I would like to see how well Hofstra plays tonight before finalizing anything....

The $100 gift card at Mark Thomas should get you about two-thirds of a tie.

I do not need another tie, let alone 2/3 of one, so I was thinking I could get 85 cents on the dollar for the gift card on EBay. (Or maybe give it to my father for Christmas.)

Nicely done, GODANESGO. Now the only problem is finding the logisitcs of determining a winner out of a contest with an open format, but I will figure something out.

 

As for the 'prize', do you want a nominal contribution to a UAlbany slush fund to be used at the winner's discretion, or do you want to stay with the ale of choice?

 

As for the rest of you, I can make up a nice little spreadsheet with everybody's picks, and we can go from there. Also, the first three have picked UAlbany, so if you want to hedge (and lose your credibility), take the other team...

Because of the time-stamp feature on the message board, there is still nearly four hours to register your picks, so here's to hoping for more volume.

 

It has been mentioned that UAlbany was picked 37 to 30 by the T-U readers. I see that they got Mr. Gersztoff's pick, which I am hoping does not beat mine.

 

Go Great Danes.
