Volundore is living dangerously in the lead, plus this week's questions for the RTT 2015 Guessing Game.

Volundore remains in sole possession of the lead, but also the sole target of the approaching blue shell. The details on how it all unfolded after the Georgia game are below, but let's queue up this week first.

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
How many net rushing yards do the Vols get? 140-169
Who leads at halftime? Alabama
What's the final margin? 4-7

And now for the play-by-play of last week's action. Reminder, here's what's happening after every question:

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 one place each round until it reaches the highest point total at which point it will blow up the player(s) then in first place. They'll 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.

Round 1

Question: Which team rushes for the most yards? Answer: Tennessee. Woo. Only five people got it right. Standings:

The first two mushrooms go to Incipient_Senescence and keefedog. They each get an extra point. MasonW and VolinSucktucky each run over bananas and lose a point.

There is no new blue shell, but Aerovols draws a thunderbolt, and everybody but him loses two points. The pending blue shell advances.
