I got my entry in early and did not realize the player count would be so low. Normally I would not drop a sports question when I know so many answers. All of the choices I knew seemed sheep possible, so I dropped it. I did not realize the potential damage was not going to be too bad no matter which one I picked.

In many games I have used tOSU as I know enough about the Buckeyes to be sure when they are right and they are common enough (or hated enough) that others will shy away from them. Committees ranking them in football seem to have a bias that goes back to Woody Hayes days. If OSU loses they will always drop more than another team in a similar situation. No argument that they did not deserve a playoff spot this season. That one loss was bad, really bad and some of the wins were very close shaves.

Please recheck my answer for 18 as I'm all but positive I had Joey Scarbury. Not that I could not match Warrant & Heaven, but that would not be one I would do. Early in the 1980s with a TV show connection? That I would do.

I had three singletons in the back nine, but unfortunately I also had two incorrect answers. If only I RTFQ.

Nice game, clt013. Thanks.

I reversed your response with that of casketromance (you had Scarbury, he had Warrant and I listed the other way around) - doesn't affect the points, but I will correct.
Thanks for catching that.
