      Only one game in and we've got a perfect score! Dishing out -40 points to @HuskerCager. What's even crazier? The exact same thing happened last year to someone else. Call the Feds! It reeks of a shoe scandal on HHCC.
       
      Week 01 includes:
      Game #01 vs. Eastern Illinois

      The regular season is finally here! Are you a seasoned Husker Hoops Central Challenge (HHCC) participant? Have you never played this game before? Good. Because everyone is eligible and highly encouraged to play! HHCC continues through the entire season which keeps things interesting... that is, if you participate! All you have to do is post your prediction (and any applicable bonus opportunities) in these HHCC game threads. And if you miss this game or any future games, you're still in the running so keep on posting your predictions throughout the season. It's that easy!
       
      THREE THINGS THIS HHCC ROUND:
       
      1) Your score prediction for Nebraska vs. Eastern Illinois (as usual).
       
      2) BONUS (-5 points): Predicting the exact number of non-conference season wins (Nov. 11-29, Dec. 9-29) -- (e.g. I am looking for an answer like "13," which indicates the number of wins you predict Nebraska will win in the non-conference.)
       
      3) *Predicting the exact number of total regular season (non-conference + conference) wins (Nov. 11-Feb. 25) -- (e.g. I am looking for an answer like "31," which indicates the number of wins you predict Nebraska will win in the entire regular season.)
      * This will not count as a bonus (and it will not count against you), but in past years it has been a missing data point of interest that would've been useful in seeing how closely we have predicting the outcome of the season
       
      Let the season begin!

      HUSKER HOOPS CENTRAL CHALLENGE IS BACK!
       
      It's officially November and you know what that means! An obnoxious amount of pumpkin spiced everything, clocks that turn backwards, crisp air, and excuses to buy things you don't really need on the day after giving thanks for the things you have. Well... that and IT'S NEBRASKA BASKETBALL SEASON!
       
      If you need yet another reason to get excited for this time of the year, we've got one more for you. For the regulars on the board, you know that HHCC is a great way to pass time, show that you're smarter than Ken Pomeroy, air your grievances, or just express your optimism by only picking Nebraska to win every single game. It's your game, your strategy, your bragging rights, and just a fun way to stay part of the HHC community throughout the season.
       
      Everybody is encouraged to play, rookie or veteran. If you miss a game or don't even start playing until the middle of the season, don't be discouraged to join. You'd be surprised by how quickly that leaderboard can change throughout the season.
       
      The rules are the same as last year with more opportunities to earn some bonus points throughout the season.
       
      Last year's Top 10 finishers were:
      1    Husker4Life
      *2   KenPom
      2    Crush78
      3    1sdpad2
      4    hhcdimes
      5    NUtball
      6    trickey
      7    colhusker
      8    HuskerFever
      9    huskerbaseball13
      10    Buglem
       
      Game on.

      HHCC SCORING AND RULES
       
      If you want to be part of the HHCC, all you need to do is guess the score of each game.  Participants with at least one entry will be included in the overall standings.  There will be a thread available following the completion of the previous game.  Scoring is based on how close you were to each team's actual point total and the margin of victory.
       
      HHCC GAME SCORING:
      The object of the game is to have the lowest accumulated points at the end of the year.
      Scoring is taken from three variables (margin of victory, actual score, correct game winner); with possible bonus points.
      Margin of Victory: This is how many points either team wins by. Scoring: Difference between Actual MoV (Husker score & Opponent score)  Predicted MoV (Predicted Husker score & Predicted Opponent score). This is then multiplied by 2. Bonus: There is a -5 bonus for correctly predicting margin of victory. To get the bonus two things must happen. 1. Your margin of victory must match the actual margin of victory. 2. You picked the correct winner.  EXAMPLE Prediction: NU 79 Opponent 72
      Actual: NU 72 Opponent 62
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      (Actual (72 62) = 10 - Predicted (79-72) = 7) = 3 * 2 = 6
      MoV = 6
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Actual Score: This is the final point totals of both teams. Scoring: (Predicted Husker score vs. Actual Husker score) + (Predicted Opponent score Actual Opponent score) Bonus: There is a -5 bonus for correctly predicting either the Huskers score or the opponents. EXAMPLE Prediction: NU 79 Opponent 72
      Actual: NU 72 Opponent 62
      ------------------------------------------
                   (79 72) + (62 72)
                        7 + 10 = 17
      ------------------------------------------
      Game Winner: Picking the correct winner. Scoring: Zero points for correct winner. 20 point penalty for incorrect choice. The final score for this game would be 23.
       
      Correctly predicting the actual game score nets all -5 bonuses and a -25 bonus, for a best possible score of -40.
       
      Missed Game:
      Your score for missing a game is (the highest score of picked games + 25 points). 
       
      End of year:
      Your highest score will be subtracted from your final point total. No Games Missed equals a -25 bonus to your final score.    HHCC RULES:
      All new HHCC game threads will be posted following the previous game. The first game will be up after the last exhibition game. Post your prediction in the HHCC thread. All predictions must be in by the scheduled tipoff time (noted in the thread's title). Any corrections to your prediction should be done in the HHCC game thread.  If you are unable to edit your score, just quote your previous score and post the new score underneath. All score updates will be posted throughout the season.
