Please use the following format:

KU 24
MU 14

(at least KU's score first.)

Using tman's formula - just so it is the same throughout all three sports.

- Lowest Score after season will be the "winner." There is no prize except bragging rights.

- Predictions must be made BEFORE the start of the game. Predictions submitted after tip-off will not count.

- One prediction per member. If there is more than one post, you will be awarded the higher of the scores.

- NO excess commentary in the prediction. This is to make it simple to record scores.


The points you receive will be based on two factors: margin of victory and actual score.

Margin of victory is weighted twice as much as the actual score. Absolute value of the difference is used.

Low points are desired.

Predicted score:
KU 24
MU 14

KU 40
MU 37

Margin of victory:
Predicted (24-14) = 10
Actual (40-37) = 3

Points = (10-3)*2 = 14

Actual Score:
KU (40-24) = 16
MU (37-14) = 23

Again absolute value of the numbers are used so no negatives!

Total Score:
14 + 16 + 23 = 53

I know it sounds complicated, but the formulas are crunched in Excel.

- If you incorrectly choose the winner of the game you will receive a score of 100.

- You will receive a score of -50 points for guessing the EXACT score for each team. Remember, low score = good.

- If you do not guess a score for a game, you will receive a penalty of 200 points.

(Sorry Oreadical, you and tman both had good rules, I didn't feel like doing another revision, so I just copied yours. If you have a problem with it, I'll do a revision.)
