It sure has been a fun (re: long, abusive, stressful) off-season hasn't it?

We at Good Bull Hunting have been running this Prediction Game for each Aggie opponent weekly, since the inception of the site (our Birthday is August 30th). The premise is simply, you fill out the form below with your username, your prediction on the score, and your the team that you root for (this won't be held against you). There will also be a weekly tie-breaker question, because unlike Soccer (the other Football), we don't allow ties in America. Your score will be the sum of the absolute value of the difference between the predicted and actual score for each team. For example: If you predict the Aggies will beat their Opponent 47-19 and the actual score was 54-13, you would recieve a score of: |47-54| + |19-13| = 13

Did you know that Rice hasn't beaten the Aggies in its last 15 attempts? The last time Rice won it was a 10-6 decision at Kyle Field and Jimmy Carter was still president. I wouldn't be born for 9 more months... come to think of it where were my parents that day?! Barbara Streisand's "Woman in Love" was at the top of the billboard charts on that day.

On to this week's game versus the overmatched Rice Owls.

Here is this week's prediction form:

Weekly Prediction Summary

NOTE: Like last year, I will delete the obviously fake erroneous predictions (examples: 1 to 0, 1,000,000 to 999,999, etc) and will filter out the idiots who try to be funny with their fake usernames (YourMomma, AggiesSuck, etc). It won't work, so just save me a little time and don't play the game if you are going to be an asshole...
