Your kind words have me searching for some. I'm at a loss, with one exception: Go Blue.
|4 days 21 hours ago||I go through the athletic||
I go through the athletic department to arrange them, and they've been fantastic. Very accommodating and easy to work with.
|1 week 4 days ago||On Mondays the SIDs pass||
On Mondays the SIDs pass around the mic, but Wednesdays we make a half circle around the coach. No mics, no hand raising, just trying to get your question in before somebody else speaks. It's an exercise in trying to read body language and figure out speech patterns to time the snap, so to speak.
|1 week 6 days ago||Yeah, I can do that. I've||
Yeah, I can do that. I've been on the fence because of how funny his pressers have been this year, but if you guys like the bulleted injury/personnel updates at the top I'll do them again.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks for the feedback, I||
Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it. I think you've brought up some very valid points; expect to see some tweaks next week. The biggest thing I need to emphasize from your list is that The Mathlete's four factors are cumulative. I include every week in the table because I thought it'd be interesting to see how things change as the season moves along.
I have some ideas for how to revamp this post in the offseason; finding a good way to visualize the data with charts and tables is my priority. I'll try and make some charts for The Mathlete's data in the next few weeks, but a lot of what I want to do with the data from Connelly's statistical profiles is lost because it updates every week, so unless I wrote about a certain stat the week before I can't necessarily track it down. I guess what I'm saying is thanks for reading, look for some clarification, and expect some cool stuff further down the road.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||People did, but not every||
People did, but not every time I put typed it. Sometimes they'd say Jake and I subbed in Rudock to clarify.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks, everyone. Really glad||
Thanks, everyone. Really glad you liked the interview. I'll try to line up more of them in the future.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I listened to it three times||
I listened to it three times before I decided he must be mixing together "have our hands full" and "have our work cut out for us." I like the result, actually.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Good question. In the Bill||
Good question. In the Bill Connelly lexicon success rate is basically a measure of how often you were in a good down-and-distance situation.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Not a stupid question at all.||
Not a stupid question at all. I just heard about it on Saturday. Seems it's just the team running a mile on Mondays, yeah.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I could go back and edit it||
I could go back and edit it but...nah.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||It came up a while ago in our||
It came up a while ago in our group chat. When I was thinking of scheme questions for a secondary coach it was the first thing that came to mind. Then this morning Seth suggested the same question almost word for word, so that cemented it.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||In his original post he has||
In his original post he has PPP, PPP+, and yards per play as ways to measure explosiveness. The advanced box scores are trimmed down a bit because he posts one for every game, so they just have YPP. You've got a good point, though.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I am too.||
I am too.
|11 weeks 20 hours ago||Ah geez, thought I cleaned||
Ah geez, thought I cleaned all those up. Main Street was a parking lot so I tried to use speech-to-text on my phone and it's terrible. First, I listen to my recording and then have to repeat what was said for the phone to write it down. Kind of entertaining though. "Jake Rudock" was "J. Crew doc," "DeVeon" was "Dave Jan," "offensive line" was "offense of line," and "punts" were obviously "Ponce."
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Ah, that would make sense.||
Ah, that would make sense. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll ask him about it.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||And here I thought I was so||
And here I thought I was so clever. Great minds think alike. I just gave away my last Mercedes, so looks like I'll have to come up with a new title.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||That was my mistake. The||
That was my mistake. The audio on my recorder was hard to hear for that question, so I switched to the video and somwhow missed the part about having 10 on the field. I've updated the transcript so it's now complete.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, that's a good point.||
Yeah, that's a good point. I'm going to change it in the post.
|13 weeks 1 hour ago||The way I took that comment||
The way I took that comment was in reference to how they treat and develop the players, but now that you mention it, I wish I'd thought to ask for clarification.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Good point. I'll start those||
Good point. I'll start those up again with the next one.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||James Light has a number of||
James Light has a number of informative posts about Harbaugh's offensive schemes. This link is for anything tagged "Harbaugh," but if you scroll down you'll find them. They're from March, I think.

Nooooooooooo I swore I would never nooooooo
|15 weeks 2 days ago||This interview was done last||
This interview was done last Thursday, so Mattison was referring only to the weight Mone put on in the offseason.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Thank you! I did identify||
Thank you! I did identify myself before the interview. I couldn't tell if Willie knew about MGoBlog, but I know there are some current players who are at least aware of the site. Not sure how much they read it, to be honest. I do know there are a number of former players who are readers.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks! I love that stuff||
Thanks! I love that stuff too. Getting anything specific makes me feel like Jim Harbaugh hearing the sound of cleats on cement.

Nope, just grabbed a photo from our Flickr.

THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN

Very cool. Looking forward to seeing more.

Spider-man 3 is the first thing that came to mind. Just seems like they're trying to fit too many storylines into a single film.
