Tangential topic: If anyone is curious why Twitter would ever expand beyond 140 characters, this is the perfect example. That letter has a lot of sellable keywords and relevance data baked into it and posting screenshots of your Notes app is not searchable so it can't be used to serve up more relevant ads or follows or other recommendations.
That said. Beat Purdue!

Wouldn't a caching solution would be cheaper for the (relatively short) surges in traffic that the site sees? Switching to a full AWS cloud architecture with properly sized instances and auto scaling groups would be fairly expensive*, require more attention to maintain, and a little overkill for the normal traffic patterns and days. A caching layer or CDN may not give you up to millisecond accurate data or posts but it would allow the site to continue to server traffic without breaking the bank
* I say this with zero knowledge of the existing infrastructure, cost, or budget.

The first Umich game is typically the weekend before the NFL starts so we do something in that game. Favorite one from the past was "How many total yards will Denard have?".

I don't have data to back this up but in the MLS case every stadium has different field dimensions. Narrow/short fields favor defense-oriented teams while wider/longer fields are more favorable to possession-oriented teams that can spread out the field.

The playing to the advantage of the rules should never trump playing the game.
I mostly agree with you but aren't the rules by definition part of the game? Playing the game means playing to the advantage of the rules.

It's OK everybody, Delany is just sending in Bielema as a double agent to take down the SEC from the inside!
Or, something like that

I don't know why this is bugging (and ever so slightly at that) but if you go from #21 to #19 in the rankings, shouldn't your change be -2? I get the relationship between "up" and + but it just feels awkward and unnatural.
Clearly this is super important and resolved immediately.

I'd argue that MSU's cheap shot on Martin's ankle had a larger impact overall than the loss of Odoms, although its a close call.
