Thanks, I'm still too optimistic...
2010 Season Probabilities Survey
I almost put the UMass and BGSU games at 100%, but I thought that would be tempting fate too much. I dialed them back a little.
Was the survey supposed to spit out my guesses? I didn't see a results page or anything.
I'll be interested to see the results.
9-3 sounds like a bit of a reach. 7 or 8 wins is more realistic.
But I'm reserving final judgment until after the UCONN game. Win that one and I think the skys the limit, lose and it might be another long season.
I was probably too optimistic too, but hey it's the off season. When do we get to see the results?
I'll post some results tomorrow. Unfortunately, these results are going to take time to compile. I'm going to have to put everything in an excel sheet and run an average % for each game. Nothing hard, just tedious. So far, 85 folks have filled out this survey. Got nearly 150 on the previous. Might just need to give it some time before I tally it all out.
confidence in the outcome is slightly more defined. In actuality, I game UM more of chance against osu and Wisco than I had in mind in the first survey. In the probability survey, I had UM with a 48 and a 47 against Wisconsin.
With no significant injuries, a lot less turnovers and the right bounce of the pigskin a few times and 9-3 or 10-2 is possible.
that i blow things up after a michigan loss: 100 percent. Probability that I get wasted after a Michigan win: 100 percent (actually, that goes for a loss too)
Come on guys...didn't everyone see the essay from yesterday? We're running the table.
It was more like erotic fan fiction.
I would love to see a projected likelihood of winning each game on the 2010 schedule based on last year's statistics for each team in the Mathlete's expected points system.
Obviously wouldn't be an accurate predictor since neither us nor any opponent should be the exact same team, but I think it would be a very interesting data point.
Then we can pretend that our opponents haven't improved any but we have and imagine how many more wins that would equate to in an expected value predictor system.
We're up to 129 participants. I'm going to tally the results when we hit 150. Need a few more guys to fill it out.
Looks like it was pretty straightforward to set up.
I have to remember to check out the averages. I can run some simulations and give probabilities for final season records using the averages.
