It's that time a year again, UConn Women's Basketball. So that means the regular season contest begins this Sunday at 1 PM, or 10 AM my time. For those of you that are new to the Boneyard, you predict who wins and what the final score is. The closest to the final score wins. At the end of the regular season someone is declared the winner, last year's winner was toadfoot. Cal played UConn close last year and both teams lost key players, but I believe that UConn wins in the end, UConn 85 Cal 66. After the game the winner (s) will be posted. The attached file is the scoring system for the contest. Good luck to everyone.

Man I really sucked at predicting games last year. And me with the reputation of being able to see into the near future. The envelopes, tarot cards and my ouija board failed me miserably last year.

I went with Massey’s predictions most of the time and still lost. I can lose on my own. But I’m determined to get ahead of this thing, so I’ll try it again this season hopefully with better results.

Cal has not played a game yet, so we have nothing to go on here. They play Harvard tomorrow at 7:00 pm on ESPN+. I’ll watch the first half and adjust my prediction accordingly. It will be interesting to see how far down the bench Geno goes here since there are only 4 players at his disposal.

UConn 67 - Cal 58

POST EDIT -
Based on Cal’s loss to Harvard tonight, I’m going to amend my prediction to UConn 85 - Cal 55.

Kaizen, your 90 point prediction for UConn looks better now than it did 2 days ago. This is going to be a totally forgettable road trip for Cal.

UConn 95 - Cal 66
95 points. Stepping out there a ways eh Kaizen? We’ll see. Right now your prediction is as good as anyone else’s. I hope you’re right. That would be an excellent way kickoff to open the season. :)

My prediction will be based on Cals game vs Harvard.
If Cal beats Harvard then UConn 80--Cal 52
If Cal loses to Harvard then UConn 85--Cal 40.

I was sniffing an upset after the ghastly second half
but
Looking at Cal's record last year, very unlikely.

Good guys by 15 or so.

We know the Huskies can score. We also know they have trouble stopping other teams from scoring....

75 to 55
I suspect we can't get to 80 as the players are still getting used to their new roles.
