Badger Prop Bets - 2013 Edition

BuckAround Staff  

 

 We like to fashion ourselves high minded sports sports enthusiasts here, but in reality we are just a bunch of degenerates willing to spend a few bucks a month on a website and vain enough to think other people want to read our opinions on the Badgers.  

We wanted to share that degeneracy with you.  Three of us put together a bunch of prop bets on the upcoming Badger season and had an idea: why keep it amongst ourselves?  Posted below is the list we came up with along with the guesses of Sahil, Max, and myself (Rich).  We'd love for our readers to join in as well.  

All we ask you to do is the following:

  1. Sign into our comments section below with your Twitter, Facebook, or Disqus account.  There's going to be a prize for the winner and I want some way to track you down.  
  2. Each prop bet has a number.  In your reply please put a number followed by your guess.  For example "1.  Under 2.  Borland" etc.   
  3. Each item has a weighted point value assigned to it based on our perception of how hard it is to get right.  Get it right, you get more points.  
  4. Entries can be made right up until kickoff Saturday and then we're closing it off. 
  5. Any entry requiring a Freshman can be either a true or redshirt.   

Let's have some fun with this and maybe you can win a (small) prize out if it!  Keep in mind we aren't professional handicappers.  We tried our best to create good numbers but we're far from perfect.  You may get some easy ones but hey,   So here's our list:
