      What a week! Sure, we haven't faced a true opponent at this point, but this already looks like a team that wants to win. Ken Pomeroy, you're 41st place right now; we see you. On to the next week.

      Believe it or not, it's already November. the temperatures certainly don't feel like it, but that's probably because Pinnacle Bank Arena is heating up.
       
      Is this your first time playing the Husker Hoops Central Challenge? Have you been playing since the dawn of time? Fantastic. Because this game is for everybody. HHCC is played throughout the season, postseason included, which continues to keep things interesting. And it's simple. Just post your prediction (and bonus prediction, when applicable) in the HHCC threads. And if you happen to miss any games or are joining us 10 weeks into the season, don't worry. You're still in the running!
       
      THREE THINGS THIS HHCC ROUND:
       
      1) Your score prediction for Nebraska vs. Mississippi Valley State (as usual).
       
      2) BONUS (-5 points): Predicting the exact number of non-conference season wins (Nov. 6-26, Dec. 8-29) -- (e.g. I am looking for an answer like "11," 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. 6-Mar. 10) -- (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 the past years it has been a missing data point of interest that would've been useful in seeing how closely we have come to predicting the outcome of the season

      HUSKER HOOPS CENTRAL CHALLENGE IS BACK!
       
      The season is fast approaching; much faster than last season as we're tipping off the first game 5 days sooner than we did a year ago. The temperatures are plunging, the leaves are falling, and the baskets this season will hopefully be dropping. Believe it or not, we're only one week until November and 12 days away from the opening game tip-off!
       
      Could you be more excited that Nebraska basketball is preseason ranked this year? Yes. Because, I've got an offer you can't refuse. For all you regulars and all you newcomers, the Husker Hoops Central Challenge is back at it again! Whether you've played every season or you've never played before; whether you made your picks since Game 1 or you're just not starting halfway through the season; whether you're here to prove you're smarter than Ken Pomeroy or you're just here to beat everyone else on the board, then this is the place for you. Seriously, the more people, the better. And if you're reading this in January, I've seen people join in late in the season and still make a deep run on the leaderboard, so don't let that deter you.
       
      Besides, this year I'm told that Dimes is going to put $1,000 of his own money in the pot to be divvied out to the top winners at the end of the season.*
      * This is not true; Dimes never once agreed or was even aware of such a thing, but it doesn't hurt to try
       
      This is where legends and leaders are born. Bragging rights are on the line. Don't live a life 10 years from now thinking, "Boy, I wish I had played in that HHCC game back in 2018-2019."
       
      But seriously, this game is fun and it's a great way to kill time throughout a roller coaster course of a 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    jimmykc
      2    Husker4Life
      3    hhcdimes
      4    AuroranHusker

      8    HuskerFever
      *9    KenPom
      9    trickey
      10    Buglem
       
      Now let's go out, have a blast, and enjoy this season for what it may be.
       
      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.
