That's not possible. One can only be m/2^n part something for some natural numbers m and n.

I have noticed that you consistently use "adieu" instead of the correct "ado." I am just pointing this out to be informative, not incendiary.
I enjoy these posts each week. Keep up the nice work.

Washington State is favored by 2.5 over Arizona State. I would include Florida State in the sucker bet category as well.

Well, I scheduled my wedding for September 24th. I'm guessing some other Michigan fans did the same. I am really hoping they do not change this.

The Law for the Wolves by Rudyard Kipling
NOW this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky,
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk, the law runneth forward and back;
For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
Wash daily from nose tip to tail tip; drink deeply, but never too deep;
And remember the night is for hunting and forget not the day is for sleep.
The jackal may follow the tiger, but, cub, when thy whiskers are grown,
Remember the wolf is a hunter—go forth and get food of thy own.
Keep peace with the lords of the jungle, the tiger, the panther, the bear;
And trouble not Hathi the Silent, and mock not the boar in his lair.
When pack meets with pack in the jungle, and neither will go from the trail,
Lie down till the leaders have spoken; it may be fair words shall prevail.
When ye fight with a wolf of the pack ye must fight him alone and afar,
Lest others take part in the quarrel and the pack is diminished by war.
The lair of the wolf is his refuge, and where he has made him his home,
Not even the head wolf may enter, not even the council may come.
The lair of the wolf is his refuge, but where he has digged it too plain,
The council shall send him a message, and so he shall change it again.
If ye kill before midnight be silent and wake not the woods with your bay,
Lest ye frighten the deer from the crop and thy brothers go empty away.
Ye may kill for yourselves, and your mates, and your cubs as they need and ye can;
But kill not for pleasure of killing, and seven times never kill man.
If ye plunder his kill from a weaker, devour not all in thy pride,
Pack-right is the right of the meanest; so leave him the head and the hide.
The kill of the pack is the meat of the pack. Ye must eat where it lies;
And no one may carry away of that meat to his lair, or he dies.
The kill of the wolf is the meat of the wolf. He may do what he will,
But, till he is given permission, the pack may not eat of that kill.
Lair right is the right of the mother. From all of her years she may claim
One haunch of each kill for her litter, and none may deny her the same.
Cub right is the right of the yearling. From all of his pack he may claim
Full gorge when the killer has eaten; and none may refuse him the same.
Cave right is the right of the father, to hunt by himself for his own;
He is freed from all calls to the pack. He is judged by the council alone.
Because of his age and his cunning, because of his gripe and his paw,
In all that the law leaveth open the word of the head wolf is law.
Now these are the laws of the jungle, and many and mighty are they;
But the head and the hoof of the law and the haunch and the hump is—Obey!

I don't know how ours compare against each other, but there is no way our long snappers have as much arm strength as Oregon State's.

Shouldn't our scoring defense be #1 at 6.2? It looks like the NCAA plays on easy mode by not ignoring touchdowns scored by opposing defenses.

It bothers me that the media (and fans of other teams) insist on referring to Michigan as "Big Blue," even though that is the semi-official moniker used by Kentucky and its fans. Get off my lawn.

|8 weeks 3 days ago||Arkansas||
It was another rough week to be an Arkansas fan as well. They blew their 8-point lead in the fourth by giving up a touchdown, 2-point conversion, and then they lost in OT without putting up a fight.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Vegas||
Vegas' goal is to encourage an equal amount of betting on each side of the line. They take a cut regardless, so 50% of the money on each side of the line minimizes their risk and maximizes their expected value.
Many times, you will see a line "move," which is essentially Vegas updating their line due to market corrections so that Vegas always wins.

The team with the minus sign is favored. "Michigan -4 against BYU" roughly translates to "Michigan's points - 4 = BYU's points."
|9 weeks 3 days ago||FPI||
ESPN's FPI gives us a 62% chance of victory, which also seems high to me. My intuition tells me it is a coin flip, but I could be emotionally hedging due to the last few years of having my hopes crushed.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||2011||
Unfortunately, the format was not different in 2011, but we got a rematch anyway. SEC bias helped keep Oklahoma State out of the championship game that year, just like it did to us in 2006 even though it wasn't officially a thing yet.

I know! I've counted 42 ball punches so far, and he doesn't show any sign of stopping soon.

I cannot think of many scenarios in which pumping in music is better than the band. Bands are one of the things that make college football special, and pumping in music necessarily diminishes the band.

Overall, it was better, but some of that was due to shiwonhada. However, I am still concerned about the overuse of piped-in music.
