We have a replacement for the Meister Meter. Here's how the Pigskin Payoff works:
 
1) Members who opt in commit to paying $1 for each TD and $1 for each interception by the Badgers this season, not counting any Bowl games. Last year, they had 54 TDs and 22 interceptions.
 
2) Members who opt out pay $50.
 
3) Billing for both opt-ins and opt-outs will take place at the end of the season.
 
4) Just to Meister things up a bit ... when you sign up to participate, you get to make a guess on the total number of points scored by the Badgers in the regular season plus Big Ten. Last year, it was 473. Closest guess gets his/her contribution halved. 
 
5) Another Meisterization ... for each game the Badgers win by 20 points or more, participants bring in a non-perishable food item. We're not going to track participants on this ... we'll just guilt them a bit. But items will go to needy families. Last year the Badgers won 7 games by 20 points or more. These items will also be collected at the end of the year.
 
We had great signups last week, including a dozen or so members who opted to DOUBLE their pledge. The Pigskin Payoff crew will be making the rounds at this meeting to round up those who missed the last meeting.
 
The Badgers scored 169 points so far, with 20 touchdowns and 4 picks.
