Honey Grove vs Cooper { ghost of Gunter} next week

Cooper is much better this year than last year. Their defense is leaky at times but is much improved and faster than they've been. Offense goes without saying they are explosive. #6 will be the best athlete on the field and #2, #5 & #9 can housecall at any time. Cooper is coming into this game tested while HG has cakewalked up until this point. Dawgs will absolutely punch you in the mouth then use your helmet to get up off the ground. Whatever HG scoreless streak they have will be broken early in the game. Cooper makes a statement and wins big here, gimme 35-21

Cooper thinks they going to roll through this game as another WC or Rcrest and are sadly mistaken. That is the mindset in Deltaland. Get ready to grab some of that cotton on the way back home to wipe away the tears of defeat.

Naw Cooper know’s hg is much better than WC & RC. There’s some hg fans that think they about to run Cooper out of the stadium though lol

This very well could turn out to be the game like in 1933.

Could also be like last year when hg came in all cocky, confident & talking like Cooper wasn't very good. Hg kept it close for a half & then you look up at the end of the game & Cooper gradually wore them down it’s 36-8. Hg was lucky to even score

What is your prediction for this game?

I posted earlier in this thread and predicted a 40-0 HG win.  They've each played a game since then, so adding those games into the equation, I get a HG win, 35-0.  This is using a different method though - and I only used it because there is a flaw in the way my calculations work.  The flaw only exists because HG allows so few points, so I don't use it that often.  A boring and possibly confusing explanation : 

It's kind of complicated.  Using my normal method, I get a Honey Grove win, 43-20.  My normal method just uses straight up points.  The flaw in my system is that if a team is shutting out literally everyone they play, there is sort of a threshold that doesn't allow the "math" to actually tell how good a defense is.  Thru 5 games, HG held each opponent to zero points.  The average offense HG faced scores 26.9 points per game, and HG's defense on average held opponents to 26.9 fewer points than they average.  The flaw is that if Honey Grove's defense is better than 26.9 points, the math wouldn't show it because they can only hold their opponents to zero.  And if that team only averages 27 points a game, then they will have only held them to 27 points fewer than they average, so being that Honey Grove's opponents average 27 points per game, their defense cannot hold them to more than 27 points fewer.  Make sense?  In other words, there is no way to tell if they WOULD HAVE held them to zero even if they average 30, 35, 40 points a game.  Up until this most recent game where they gave up what I think was a cheap field goal, they have faced teams that average 31, 35, and 40 points per game - and Honey Grove held each of these opponents to zero - so in THOSE games, they held their opponents to 31 fewer, 35 fewer, and 40 fewer than they average respectively.  If I had applied my "x" amount fewer than they average method - - which is only 27 points, then I would have had all three of those teams scoring points.  However, if I use a "percentage" method instead, I get a 35-0 prediction.  Honey Grove has held their opponents to about 1.8% of what they average.  Cooper averages 45.3 points per game, and 1.8% of this is 0.82 points.  Since scoring 1 and only 1 point is extremely unlikely, I just made it 0 in the 35-0 prediction that uses this percentage method.  The absolute method (which is what I use pretty much 100% of the time, I get a 43-20 Honey Grove win.

I realize how much I'm overthinking all this.  I hope I didn't bore everyone.

Interesting, curious to see how this plays out. I am more old school. Through a series of coin flips, paper rock scissors matches with my granddaughter, and tossing chicken bones I come up with 36-20 Bulldogs LOL.

Your method is no worse than mine.
