You loved it for football, why not love it for basketball

Wait, you do not know what BRuWPEG is? Simple answer, just respond back with your predicted score of the Bulls game. For example this week, Bulls 72, Ball State 59. We do the rest. The game that allows you to choose the winner and the scoring is more confusing than deal between the MAC and ESPN. Here is the link for the competition for football: Football BRuWPEG As always, Mitchell's Sport Bar and Tavern is giving a $25 gift certificate to the year-end winner.

If you really need to know how the game is scored, here you go engineer majors. The point totals are slightly different than for football:

Correct winner: 1 point

Within 3 points, both teams: 2 points each.

Correct score, both teams: 4 points each

Total Score within 6 points: 2 points

Total Score Right on: 6 point bonus

The max points available for a perfect pick? A scoreboard-busting 19 points. It sounds easier than it is.

There are ten games left in the MAC season for the Bulls.  We are starting with what should should be a fun first pick. I hope. The Bulls, who are world beaters at home, right Kent?, are all over the map on the road. The Bulls head to Ball State who are on a nasty losing streak including Miami, Akron, Kent St, Ohio Bowling Green, and Western Michigan. The Cardinals sit at 7 - 12 and based on the blow out of Kent, Bulls should come in and leave with a victory. Could this be a trap game? Absolutely, as UB faces a very good Akron team next.

Remember, tie breaker goes to best/funniest/insightful post.  Good luck and thanks for playing!
