It's Gameday, and that means the return of the RTT Guessing Game. Woo.

Yes, we'll be using Mario Kart rules again this season with a tweak or two. Here's how to play and what happens to you through no fault of your own:

First, go to the form and submit your answers to our three questions. Before you hit submit, copy your answers for the next step so you can remember them

Second, come back here and put your answers in the comments so everyone can see and later make fun of you for being so, so wrong.

That's really it for the stuff you can control. You get one point for each answer you get right, and we accumulate them over the course of the season.

Now for the Mario Kart-style chaos. Stuff can happen to you during each week's tabulation of the totals. Stuff like this:

Mushroom. Plus one point. There are two of these per round, randomly distributed.

Banana. Minus one point. There are 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.

New this year: There is always some attrition during the season, and the specials aren't as fun when there are 50 people in the "race" that are no longer actually playing. I'm going to fix that, as soon as I figure out the best way to do it.

So anyway, 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:

Vols' net rushing or net passing: Net passing

25+ yard pass plays: 2

Vols score 45 points or more? Yes

Good luck!
