Dang he only threw 11 passes in the whole damn game?  Crazy.  I guess when you dominate an opponent like that your starters get benched early.  Not to mention when you're running all over them.

I've made a note of all entries thus far.  Y'all still have until kickoff (6:05 CDT) to get your score in.   

Thumper you played last week, if you don't play this week your score for this week will be higher than everybody who does play.

For those of you who played (or will play) this week but didn't play last week, you will get an 8 for last week averaged into your final score.  We had six play last week and they're ranked 1-6.  By all rights you cats should be no higher than 7 but you get a penalty point too because I say so.  So that puts you at 8.

Good luck.  Thanks for playing.

Got the stats, got the winner, got the rankings.  I’ll post when I can. Got to go to church and buy the family lunch first. I’d say 2 pm cdt is the over/under.

Remember this is the 1/2assed RGC.

I have decided to embrace mediocrity, so for this week's question we will celebrate the sloppy ball handling and game control of one Sam Ehlinger.

My question for you is this - at what yardage and whose side of the field will Texas be at, at the outset of the play when Sam Ehlinger has his final turnover of the game?  

A few qualifiers and clarifications - 

Please note the word "final."  If he turns the ball over 6 times, we don't care where he was the first five times.  Just the 6th.

By outset of the play, I mean that for example Texas is at the USC 11 and Texas throws a pick in the endzone, the answer is USC 11 not USC O.

And by turnover, I'm narrowing it to just a fumble or an interception.  If/when he turns it over on downs because he did something stupid, we won't count that one.

If you honestly think he will play an error free game with no turnovers.  Then say N/A.

Before answering, I'm gonna wait this question out.  Seems like it could be reduced to "how many TO's will Sam have".  I can see people reading the above post three times right now.

Oh, and N/A.

So you instead of asking a question that can have 101 possible answers (thus ensuring separation among entrants), you want me to ask a question with no more than 6 probable answers, thus guaranteeing a clustering of contestants instead of a separation.

You don’t statistic much, do you, BC?

I like BC's suggestion but why not just ask which half will his last turn over occur
that way I have a 50/50 shot
anyway I'll play along
my answer is the Texas 40 yard line

CH I assume this is a turnover from Sam himself and not a turnover from for example a running back or a receiver

Sam might throw an interception or fumble for example

The turnover has to be by Ehlinger. He throws a pick or fumbles. I’m not sure how much more simple the question can be.  You know I am kind of an a-hole.  Piss me off too much and you can all stick this game up your asses.
