Weekly Trivia - 2008 won by mross34

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by BB73, Feb 8, 2008.

    Next contest sessions will be:

    In February, 2009 the contest will return.

    Each portion of the contest should have 3 questions, and last for 30-45 minutes.
    They will be done one at a time until the correct answer is received. After an incorrect answer, a poster must wait 3 minutes before trying to answer the same question.

    Times for future contest will be subject to revision, based on feedback received via PMs.

    This thread will be on ongoing thread that will ask questions about college football, and reward the poster with the correct answer. I am establishing some rules for this thread, in order for it to have some order.

    Rules:

    1. I will try to 'activate' this thread each Thursday until further notice.

    2. Only BB73 can ask the trivia questions in this thread. I will 'close' this thread when the contest is not in operation.

    3. Each poster may only attempt to answer each question once every 3 minutes. Subsequent answers within the 3-minute period (for that question by that poster) will be deemed non-responsive.

    4. The poster with the first correct answer, according to these rules, will be repped by me. However, there will be a limit of 1 rep per poster each week.

    5. This thread should only be used for the purpose of attempting to answer the questions. All discussion regarding the questions, the answers, the format of the contest, etc., should be sent to me via PM.

    6. A history of the posters with the correct answers will be maintained in the second post of this thread.

    7. My decision regarding the correctness of the answers is final. If you have a question or dispute regarding a particular answer, PM me, and I will answer you. If I make a mistake, it will be admitted publicly.

    8. After a few months, this contest will end, and an overall winner will be declared.

    I am trying to have the 'winner' be someone that knows the answer without guessing and without looking it up. That's why the questions are scheduled, and will be structured in a way that makes it difficult to guess the correct answer. But guessing and looking it up are allowed, you just only get one attempt per question every 3 minutes.

    Here is a sample of the type of question that will be asked.

    What is the total of the number of Heismans won by Archie Griffin and the total number of tOSU football victories over Notre Dame?

    The questions will not be that simple, but they are not intended to be ridiculously difficult, either. I will try to ask questions for which some people, but not most people, know the answers. If you weren't aware that the correct answer to the sample question was 5, you'll struggle with the questions.

    The questions will sometimes involve more than 1 number, and will require simple math to be performed. That is done to make it more difficult to guess the correct answer.

    Here is a link to the previous years' threads. ScriptOhio won both times.

    Correct. (This was mentioned in Conley's chat this week, and I intentionally held off on copying the info into BP so I could ask this question).

    The contest returns tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern.

    A reminder - after an incorrect answer, that person must wait 3 minutes before attempting to answer the same question.

    Dang google!!! Of course once I change the offensive "native american" for "indian" it is the first item that pops up.

    Figures...
