Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
I saw this in the Meijer sale flyer this week.
Do you think the Ad agency found a good model?
I know there are some film buff around here (if anyone's hanging out in the off-season...it's been kinda bleak...), so those that are following along, want to comment on movies or awards, or react can go here. And your picks, if you have any. Mine-

Director and Supporting Actress seem iffy among the big categories. Art/Costume could go to Alice. The minor short film/foreign/doc seem as open as they've ever been. And it's been awhile since the favorite has actually swept the tech sound/sound/visual awards. So we'll see...
A couple quick/helpful updates today:
- Automatic image resizing works again, and now works for images within the actual posts, in addition to images in the comments.
- You can now hide a user's posts simply by clicking on a handy "hide user" button right under a user's name within a post. Clicking the link will ask you to confirm whether you want to hide this user. If you say yes, their posts will automatically be collapsed or hidden, depending on your settings. These changes can be removed from the options page.
It doesn't look like thread preview is going to be possible without some back-end support for it, so that's a bummer, but maybe Brian will put that in place at some point.
I waited as long as I could, nobody else created it.
I am drinking a very large Ward 8 coctail (Bourbon, Grenadine, Lemon Juice, Sugar, Ice, shaken together, topped with red wine) made with cheap jug wine (Paisano) and Jim Beam, and looking at my ticket stubs from Wisky 2008 (football) and Wisky 2011 (Wednesday night basketball). Two awesome games, two last second finishes, one fantastic, the other terrible. I should've known I wouldn't be lucky enough to see two epic wins.
Also, this drink packs a punch, baby! WHOO! Why is my keyboard so loud?
This is a question for all you statistics minded posters out there.
A question occured to me as to whether MBB's number of close losses this year versus top 25 teams (4), close being 2 possessions or less, indicated a likely improvement next season (early looking results say yess, but the post is still forthcoming). The question is not about this. I'm working on it, and the post and evidence will go up. Hopefully you will all find it useful.
The question is this: WHERE DO YOU PEOPLE FIND TIME FOR THIS STUFF?
Here I am pulling records for gamse from 05-06 trhough this year for teams and trying to match those up with end of season rankings to find results for the top 50 of basketball, counting up close wins and losses, comparing that to next season results and looking for reasonable trends, etcetera. I've barely made a dent in my data gathering and it's been three hours. I work 7-4:30 most days and I am married. Where do you find the time to put all this together? Are there automated tools that will pull the data you need? Software? do you just learn a lot of tricks when you do it over and over? AHHHHG!
Also, don't steal the idea and research it for your own post please. I'm quite pleased with the data I'm getting, and I will enjoy releasing it... when I can get it finished!
