Just thought of this game, but I'm sure I didn't come up with it.

Hawks scored 28.2 pts/game last year in the regular season. I'm going to be optimistic and say they improve to 30 for a total of 360 points.

Schedule:

NIU
ISU
UNI
Wisconsin
@Minn
@Indiana
Maryland
@PSU
@Purdue
jNW
@Illinois
Nebrantska



Game:

Allocate those 360 points however you'd like across the 12 games. Winner is the person that would end up with the most wins in real life based on how many points the defense gives up. Ties are possible and no using half points for any games.

Ex: You allocate 11 points to UNI because you're confident we'll hold them to 10 or less.

For a tiebreaker, list the total actual amount of points the Hawks score this year. Price is right rules. If two people are still tied, winner is the one that posted it first. If there are any questions I'll think of rules on the fly, because it's my game. Closes at 4 PM on August 31st.

Winner gets a $25 gift card to Thunderhead.

You are the leader in the club house so far. Good luck!

I like the idea. It’s kind of arbitrary but it’s thinking about football and gambling in early August...don’t see a need to shit on it.

9-way tie for 1st after Week 1! (10-way tie if you count L. Wade, but he would lose any tiebreaker to Debit). HawkLax6 is also mathematically eliminated.
