Doesnt his approach actually increase the influence of some of the outliers? I.e. the bins with less points to average, which tend to be outliers, count the same as those bins with many more points in the final regression. Intuitively it makes sense that there should be a cluster closer to y=0 but the final plot glosses over that in favor of high R^2 with a "clean" looking plot.

I'm not sure he would ever become part of Michigan's coaching staff based on how I read the article, if thats what you are hoping for.
He very much sounds like the kind of guy who relishes the training aspect of football lineman outside of the gameplanning and scheming of coaching. Focusing on the micro versus the macro that is left to the more traditional coaches.

Looked good from one rep (albeit sans pads).

"Moscow in the Hudson" is a great lesser known gem from a wonderful career. To be able to be the same enthralling actor while speaking a non native tongue as difficult as Russian is commendable.

Re:practice performers vs game performers. I wonder if the staff is thinking along the same lines, and it is a small reason for holding an open scrimmage to help better simulate a game experience.

If you really believe millenials are a nightmare to manage you should just retire right now. IMO it takes a lot more courage to to adress the issue of why your old mamagement techniques aren't connecting with the yonger workforce as opposed to sitting back on your heels and ranting about how things used to be. Sorry for the rant (and sorry if you aren't actually managing millenials).
|3 weeks 2 hours ago||I agree with you Re: arrested vs. charged||
It doesnt make sense for Brian to compare the two unless you have both the arrest rates and the charged rates, or a combined rate like your Oakland example. Also, I would say that using Oakland as a representative example of the country is not a good idea. Even if it was a representative example I dont follow your math on how athletes are being arrested/charged at the same rate as the general young male population (comparing percentages when one sample group is a subset of another is tricky).
I guess my overal point is a mistake that both you and Brian made; using someone else's statistics (which are often presented in such a way to help the original author's point) when you dont have the raw data can lead to some not-so-logical conclusions.

took "pitch invader" a little too literally....wouldnt be suprised if he was related to Les Miles.

McKinley isn't the best but they are big enough that if they weren't dog friendly they would loose a lot of potential customers. Yeah the monthly fee is something to grumble about, but it's par for the course unless you find the rare homeowner renting out couple rooms who is dog friendly. I personally live on the north side in a McKinley complex and it's a nice walk to north campus and a short bike ride to central campus/downtown.

Sipping on Don Julio anejo at the moment.

I may have to use your succinct costco/whole foods analogy as well.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||The patch||
The patch should be red and called the "aneurysm of leadership." Also it should not be tied to any one jersey as anyone worthy of the patch will be used to switching jerseys mid game due to leaving it all in the floor.

As well as its implication that attending college is to futher your career. I guess I'm being overzealous in defending my idealistic veiw of my profession that really was just a tangent thought.

I appreciate the legal insight combined with just enough wit to make legal proceedings sound fun. As an engineer though I do take slight offense to the subtle jab that engineers only get engineering degrees to make money, we can enjoy our jobs too. If I wanted to get a degree only make money I would have gone for an MBA.

I personally appoint myself to scroll through this "shit" for you at a fair price of 250$/minute.

Granted the article shoves all the separation processes into one sentence without explaining it further, but it sounds like the 90% water containing manure is the raw material input to their separation train.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||I know it might be nitpicking||
But being able to finish around the rim with either hand is almost a universal skill for any college level player. I'd be more surprised if he couldn't make a right handed bank shot (being a lefty) from 8 feet out.

The other adult is a volunteer at the peace neighborhood center, not a student athlete at Michigan if that's what you are getting at.

I like this idea, maybe try to update it at least an hour before gametime with starting pichers and sorylines like you have for this one.
As for tonight I am excite to see what Robbie Ray can do in his debut.
