2020 Buckeye Trivia Contest - Thursday at 3 pm ET and 7 pm ET

Discussion in 'College Football' started by BB73, Apr 21, 2020.

    Next contest sessions will be:

    May 28, 2020 - NOW
    June 04, 2020 - 3 pm ET, and 7 pm ET

    Each portion of the contest should have 5 questions, and last for 30-45 minutes.

    They will be done one at a time until the correct answer is received. After an incorrect answer, a poster must wait 2 minutes (time between the posts' timestamps) before trying to answer the same question.

    Times for future contest will be subject to revision, based on feedback received via PMs.

    This thread will be on ongoing thread that will ask questions about college football, and reward the poster with the correct answer. I am establishing some rules for this thread, in order for it to have some order.

    Rules:

    1. I will try to 'activate' this thread each Thursday until further notice. I will open it for replies just before I post the first question in each session.

    2. Only BB73 can ask the trivia questions in this thread. I may 'close' this thread when the contest is not in operation.

    3. Each poster may only attempt to answer each question once every 2 minutes. Subsequent answers within the 3-minute period (for that question by that poster) will be deemed non-responsive. Once a post is made, please don't edit it or delete it. I will edit your answer to let you know if it's not correct. You will need to refresh your screen to see this.

    4. The poster with the first correct answer, according to these rules, will be quoted and liked by me. The winner of the contest will receive v$25,000.

    5. This thread should only be used for the purpose of attempting to answer the questions. All discussion regarding the questions, the answers, the format of the contest, etc., should be sent to me via PM.

    6. A history of the posters with the correct answers will be maintained in the second post of this thread.

    7. My decision regarding the correctness of the answers is final. If you have a question or dispute regarding a particular answer, PM me, and I will answer you. If I make a mistake, it will be admitted publicly.

    8. After several weeks, this contest will end, and an overall winner will be declared.

    I am trying to have the 'winner' be someone that knows the answer without guessing and without looking it up. That's why the questions are scheduled, and will be structured in a way that makes it difficult to guess the correct answer. But guessing and looking it up are allowed, you just only get one attempt per question every 3 minutes.

    Here is a sample of the type of question that will be asked.

    What is the total of the number of Heismans won by Archie Griffin and the total number of tOSU football victories over Notre Dame?

    Most questions will not be that simple, but they are not intended to be ridiculously difficult, either. I will try to ask questions for which some people, but not most people, know the answers. If you weren't aware that the correct answer to the sample question was 6, you'll struggle with the questions.

    The questions will sometimes involve more than 1 number, and may require simple math to be performed. That is done to make it more difficult to guess the correct answer.

    Here is a link to the previous years' threads. ScriptOhio won the first two, mross34 won in '08, generaladm won in 2009, and gracelhink won in 2011.

    OK, we are starting. Please don't edit your answers. I will edit them if they're not the correct answer.

    Correct – Les Horvath was drafted by the Cleveland Rams in the 6th round of the 1943 NFL Draft, spent 1943 in Dental School and not on the football field, and then returned in 1944 as a graduate student with a year of eligibility remaining due to a World War II era rule. He led the Buckeyes to an undefeated season in 1944, winning the Heisman, while the team finished second in the AP poll to a loaded Army team. He did play for the Rams in LA for a couple of years and for the AAFC Cleveland Browns for one season in 1949, before becoming a full-time dentist.

    Next question coming right up.

    Correct -Don McCafferty was an offensive lineman on the NC winning team in 1942. I think he was about 6’4”, 220 pounds while at tOSU. He actually played a year at wide receiver for the NY Giants in 1946. He was an assistant coach on the 1959 Baltimore Colts team that won an NFL Title, and 11 years later was the head coach of the Colts when they beat Dallas in Super Bowl V, on Jim O’Brien’s last second field goal. After being the head coach at Baltimore for 3 years, and for the Detroit Lions for one season, Don’s coaching career was cut short when he died of an apparent heart attack in 1974 at the age of 53.

    Next question coming right up.

    During their freshman year, future Heisman winner Horvath and future Super Bowl winning head coach McCafferty roomed together, and had another football player living in that room. The third guy happens to be a member of the NFL Hall of Fame, who is he?
