GRT Guessing Game Results Weeks 7 & 8: Displaced_Vol_Fan takes the lead

Here’s the play-by-play for the last two weeks.

Week 7 – Auburn

Round 1

Q: Who scores first for the Vols? (10 – 30 points available)

A: A field goal kicker (10 points)

Only four players get this right.

Mushrooms: Gavin Driskill and HT

Bananas: jfarrar90 and Mariettavol

Blue shells and bolts: 

  • We get both a new blue shell and a thunderbolt, the bolt thrown by Isaac Bishop
  • Blue Shell #2 reaches the leader, Randy Holtzclaw, and blows him up. He loses 10 points and yet was so far ahead that he still maintains the lead.
  • Blue Shell #3 Counter: 5

Top 10 after Round 1:

  1. Randy Holtzclaw
  2. Displaced_Vol_Fan
  3. Jayyyy
  4. Will Shelton
  5. daetilus
  6. Joel Hollingsworth
  7. Mitchell K
  8. cscott95
  9. jfarrar90
  10. Sam Hensley

Round 2

Q: Tennessee is allowing 7.6 tackles for loss per game. Auburn is getting 8.2. How many TFLs does Auburn get this weekend against the Vols? (10 – 20 points available)

A: 8-10 (10 points) (they got 10)

Six players get this right.

Mushrooms: jrstep and Isaac Bishop

Bananas: Isaac Bishop and Jayyyy

Blue shells and bolts: 

  • New rule on bolts (to make it easier to administer): The player who throws it gets 15 points. These go to Isaac Bishop this round. In the future (including this round), they’ll be awarded at the time the bolt is thrown rather than one round later.
  • No new blue shells
  • Blue Shell #3 Counter: 4
  • A bolt is thrown, again by Isaac Bishop, who gets another 15 points.

How is this happening? If the random number generator chooses someone who has played in the past but didn’t play that week, I move it to the closest player. Most of those folks are at the bottom of the standings, and Bishop has been in last place among the folks persevering through the season, so he’s been the recipient of a bunch of these. Congrats?

Top 10 after Round 2:

  1. Displaced_Vol_Fan
  2. Jayyyy
  3. Randy Holtzclaw
  4. Mitchell K
  5. Will Shelton
  6. daetilus
  7. Joel Hollingsworth
  8. Isaac Bishop
  9. cscott95
  10. jfarrar90

Round 3

Q: Which team has the most punts? (10 – 20 points available)

A: Tennessee (10 points) (The Vols had 4 to Auburn’s 3.)

Ten players get this right.

Mushrooms: jrstep and Gavin Driskill

Bananas: Sam Hensley and Raven17

Blue shells and bolts: 

  • Blue Shell #3 Counter: 3
  • New Blue Shell #4 Counter: 5
  • New bolt, thrown by Raven17, who gets 12 points (15 for the bolt, minus 3 for the mushroom)

I was at a wedding this weekend and didn’t have internet access, or I would’ve played.
