RTT Guessing Game: Vandy edition

It's the Thanksgiving lag edition of the 2015 Guessing Game!

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

I've not gotten to the Mario Kart stuff yet today due to Thanksgiving, the commencement of the holiday shopping season, and a daughter home from college, but I wanted to go ahead and get the Guessing Game questions up for tomorrow's game. I'll update the post tomorrow morning with the fun stuff, but for now, go to the form and submit your answers to our three questions. THE FORM IS SLUGGISH. Just give it a minute, and it will catch up to you. 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.

EDIT: Okay, so the form is overloaded or something. Let's try this (it will only work if you've played before):

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
Which is greater, the Vols' net rushing yards or the Vols' net passing yards? Vols' net rushing yards
Do the Vols get an interception? Yes
Does Vanderbilt score 10 points or more? Yes

Reminder, here's what's happening after every question:

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

Banana. Minus one point. Four 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 (I changed this to four places in Week 7 due to it moving too slow and realizing that a player could otherwise stay ahead of it by getting all questions right. No leader escapes the blue shell in Mario Kart.) 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. (Changed the bottom-half requirement in Week 9. Now anyone can get it.) When received, it's automatically released, and everyone loses a point except for the person who received and used it.

Round 1

Question: How many net rushing yards does Josh Dobbs get?

Answer: Over 50 (54). Nineteen players got this right. The following players are in the lead with four points:

Answer: Yes. (Tennessee had 16). Everybody who played got this right.

Mushrooms: Smokin Turkeys, Displaced_Vol_Fan, VolinSucktucky, and LouisvilleVol.

Bananas: MissingFulmer, PrideoftheSouthlandFam, Captennmike, and pjmatthevill.

No thunderbolts, but a new blue shell is launched from the back and travels four spots toward the front.

New leaders:

volundore
Smokin Turkeys

Round 3
