New, 14 comments

Here are your questions for this week's edition of the 2015 RTT Guessing Game, along with the current standings and a bold and aggressive play call that we hope gains positive momentum.

Congrats to the six people who are currently tied for first in the RTT Guessing Game. To play this week, go to the form and submit your answers to our three questions. When you're done, come back here and paste your responses in the comments section for discussion purposes. DON'T FORGET TO HIT THE SUBMIT BUTTON. Here are my answers:

If your RTT screen name is on the list below, choose it. Otherwise, choose NEW PARTICIPANT and type your screen name in the box that magically appears.e? (Defensive or special teams) Joel Hollingsworth
Do the Vols get over 200 net passing yards this week? No
Do the Vols attempt a 4th-down conversion in this game? Yes
Do the Vols give up a 4th-down conversion in this game? Yes

ATTENTION: In the interest of doing something aggressive that could be all kinds of awesome or fail miserably, we're throwing in the Mario Kart chaos rules this week. Here are the extras in play and how we intend to use them.

Mushroom. Plus one point. Two of these per round, randomly distributed.

Banana. Minus one point. Two of these per round, randomly distributed.

Blue Shell. 25% chance each round of the person in last place getting one of these. Once received, it's automatically released and will travel from the lowest point total to the highest one place each round until it reaches the leader(s), at which point it will blow them up and cause them to lose two points.

Thunderbolt. 25% chance each round of someone in the bottom half of the standings getting this. When received, it's automatically released, and everyone loses two points except for the person who received and used it.

We'll check for specials after tabulating each question. In other words, we'll tabulate the results of the first question, re-rank everyone, check for specials and their effects, re-rank everyone again, and then move on to the next question until there are no more questions. This may be way more work than it's worth, so I reserve the right to throw up my hands and say, "Sorry -- going back to kicking extra points and field goals on fourth-and-goal!"
