How did the Predictions thread do for the BC Game?

Sep 11, 2006
57,018
16,242
113
43 predicted the correct winner and 13 wrong.

How much of that was first-game optimism and support rather than a real prediction? Don't care!

@zebnatto predicted a 1 point victory.. RU 28 BC 27
@Barnaby&Neill came closest.. pegging Rutgers winning score and missing BC's by 1 RU 22 BC 20
Some others had RU at 22 but had BC score fewer.. or pegged BC's 21 but had Rutgers score more

43 Predicted Rutgers win

Credit where credit is due: my pick was just the median scores of all of the prior picks (and some picks from a BC site)! The group got it right

Pretty solid - I'll bet if we ranked our Ignore lists our top 15 or 20 would match. LOL

That would be an interesting feature for the site.. click on someone's handle and see how many ignore lists they are on. Or click a "common ignore" button and see all the people you both have on ignore. Could definitely help identify the trolls... the sneaky ones who take a long time to end up on ignore lists because they are crafty.

Mine's easy. I never put, and will never put, anybody on ignore.

I think I accidentally did so once or twice when using my ipad; errant taps or whatever. But I undid those once I realized.

OTOH, I bet I'm on plenty of other's ignore lists. Which means I win, using internet rules. 😃

My list fall into a couple of categories:

1. Trolls or continually negative about Rutgers athletics or generally
2. Attackers- those that attack others unprovoked
3. Continually one-sided and making everything about their politics. That may be the smallest group.


Ok who has the longest Ignore list? I count 29 names on GOR’s list. Impressive, in a way.
Quick, rough count- 55 on mine. Considering that many are probably long gone or have multiple screen names, that list may actual be 5 or 6. 🤣

I always wondered how many posters have multiple handles? Takes a special person to be ignored using multiple pseudonyms.

I don't put anyone on ignore. A couple of years ago one board member kept saying I was a troll, not sure why. I don't even ignore him. He doesn't post very often.

Like I mentioned above, when someone puts me on their ignore list, I figure I've won. Same applies to you (and everyone with no ignore list). With no ignore list, you've all won and are still winning.

Winning at the internet, IMO at least, means not allowing other's opinions or politics or trolling to alter one's equanimity. Also, I feel like if I were to ignore someone, I might miss some entertaining posts or, better yet, some golden opportunities to taunt, tease and mock someone for their posted ridiculousness. Life is too short to miss those great opportunities. 😀

My attitude might reflect a certain lack of seriousness on my part, I suppose. 🤷‍♂️🙂

You want to waste your time wading through trolls and responses to trolls be my guest. IGNORE list feature is there because people find it useful. Call having no one on IGNORE "winning" if you like as well.

I wonder how many names on my list are the same troll.

I read extremely fast. So hardly any time is wasted. 😉
