Thanks for the great thread!
If you had to guess, what is the cause for the effect of age differences? What happens to around the age of 12 that makes a difference?
If soccer players are also exhibiting CTE, it would be interesting to do a similar study and see if you get a gender difference in the cutoff age (e.g., boys - 12, girls - 10).

Reports emerging that UCLA's DC (Jeff Ulbrich) is leaving. Pretty crappy to pull this on NSD right after players sign. In the case of Smith, he cited Ulbrich as the reason he chose UCLA
|4 weeks 1 day ago||U.Texas is fooked||
Their offense was horrendous last year (59yds of offense). Their defense was solid but lose their best players to early NFL entry and graduation. They don't have any good QBs in the pipeline. Strong is a good defensive coach, but I don't think he'll last 4 years.
Murray is very short, but he is one of the most polished HS QBs you'll ever see. So much so, that he may pass up A&M's current starter (who was the #1 PP QB the previous year). Personally, I hope Murray gets redshirted.

Snyder was not good the past two seasons. Granted, he didn't have a ton to work with at the DT and LB positions (lacked bodies). Still, he underperformed. I hate to think how much worse A&M would've been on defense had they not had Myles Garrett this season (freshman DE who'll be better than Clowney).

I like the Texas A&M football (see also Duke basketball) model for student tickets.
Your students are your most passionate fans. Give them the best seats in the house. It makes for a louder stadium, increases student desire to pack the stadium regardless of the opponent, and makes them so into the experiences that they will eagerly buy tickets later on when they are alumni.

All you had was an ESPN reporter (Darrell Rovell) on a personal crusade against A&M who said he's talked to dealers. These dealers won't go on record and some have a criminal past. This is not the first time Rovell has been duped in his investigations.
If there was solid evidence, I'd be all for suspending Manziel. But without anything credible, he's innocent and should play (in fact, sitting him for the 1st half is stupid)

I wish they would get more sleep before making these long drives.

So, A&M finished 3rd in the SEC West, beat the crap out of OU (1st in the Big12) by 27 pts. If that makes the SEC overrated, then what does that mean the Big12 is?

Great card, especially if you do a lot of Amazon purchases (3%).
Like most cards, you should pair it with another card. I suggest the Chase Freedom to get the 5% back on certain categories.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||10-2||
My Quick Projection: 10-2. We win one of the three tough games

...you mean send you into a grease coma.
Always tasted awesome. Always felt like crap 2hrs later.

A&M fans use LOUD VOICES and Kyle Field as it is is incredibly loud. Add 20k more fans and reshape the stadium to funnel more noise back on the field is going to result in some unpleasant times for the opposing team's QB.

Did you remove instances when the opponent is also coming off of a bye week?

I'll unfortunately be traveling during the destruction of Florida. Anyone know if I can listen to the game via iPhone over cellular?

He's not beating out Johnny Football for the Heisman.
However, he can be 1st team All BigTen.
Had he enough starts to qualify this past season, Gardner's QB rating would've placed him 8th in the nation
|2 years 2 days ago||Flawed Methodology||
Not to sound like a downer, but I'm not a big fan of how you're attempting to compare Hoke's classes to Saban's classes with your Impact metric.
If a player hasn't played (e.g., currently redshirting), he gets a value of 1. The problem comes when you compare the class to Saban's. Because Saban has been at Bama longer, we already know how his players turn out, which gives them (usually) a value of 2 or 3. So, right away, it's unfair to compare their classes using your metric.
It's an interesting idea, but I think analysis should be done in a few years.

I check the site a couple times a day. There are some poor pieces (Oklahoma) but it's still a great site

1) I hate baseball due to all the agony being an Astros fan has caused me.
2) Biggio and Bagwell should definitely be voted in, especially Biggio.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||8 WRs are needed||
A&M loses 4 WRs to graduation. With the air-raid offense deploying 4-5 WRs per play and A&M running the hurry-up, they need about 10 contributers per game.

2012 was a relatively small class. On top of that, several of those players were able to be backdated to 2011 due to EE. Thus, technically, A&M had a tiny 2012 class. So, A&M is able to get a ton of recruits for 2013 via EE.
IMO, the whole recruiting numbers things is kinda odd, but A&M is playing by the rules. There's no St. Nick Saban Memorial Hospital shenanigans going on.
A&M does have a TON of WR commits. One of them, Griffin (4*/5*) is not expected to make it in due to grades. WRs recognize the chance to play with JFF and that 4-5 WRs are on the field at any time.

Too bad DG wasnt so wildly innacurate or else M would've won and Gallon would've had 200+ yds
