Shall we play a game?

Spur21 sent me an email I’m gonna share with you.

Hey Senator,

As we close out this unforgettable year how about a contest. I’m
thinking a tie in to the Bama / Buckeye game. Winner of the game with
some unpredictable statistics as a tie breaker.

I received the attached watch several years ago and don’t wear a watch so it has
sat in my desk drawer for years. Maybe some well deserving DAWG fan will
put it to use.

Here’s the watch in question:

DSC03231

And here’s the contest:

Pick the winner and for the tiebreaker, predict the difference in QBR between Fields and Jones.  Closest guess wins.

All answers in the comments.  I’ll send the winning picker’s email address to Spur21 to arrange delivery of the prize.  Have at it!

    That is one fine rotorhead! I worked a Special Olympics dance at Stegman years ago and there was an auction that had an autographed Georgia basketball with Hollywood Hartrey, David Dunn,Joe Ward, Chad Kessler and Willie Anderson. I kept it on a shelf all these years and, last year, I learned that a new friend of mine had been going to Georgia hoops religiously since 84 so I gave it to him!

    • Nice to read those names, and I instantly remembered what each of them looked like. Hadn’t heard Donald Hartrey’s name in many years! Jumpin’ Joe Ward was a “star” for a little while in the CBA.

      Willie Anderson remains my favorite all time (basketball) Dawg. He had a long, productive NBA career

        Hey RR, did you get one of those FTMF hats? I bought a spare and will donate it to you if you need one. You epitomize the feeling of the hat to me.

          That’s so very kind of you, mwodieseldawg. I certainly DO feel that way and truly appreciate that you recognize it. About the only hat I wear is one of them bucket-looking flap hats when I’m fishing. Your offer is as good as the gift. Spread that hate to someone who would make better use than a wall hanger. Thank you very much.

      As an aside, I am intrigued by the news on Waddle. Without question, that had to make Day’s stomach hurt all night. Even if this is a smokescreen and he won’t hit the field, just having to prepare for the possibility that he will play negatively impacts tOSU’s preparation. If he can play, even if just 10 to 15 snaps, that really hurts tOSU as their main weakness is the secondary already. If he is on the field, they will have a hard time bringing a safety into the box to help with Harris and it compounds the problem of covering Smith who can’t be covered by one-on-one coverage.

      And on the flip side, how hurt is Fields?
