|1 week 3 days ago||Inflation||
"All the University of Michigan students arrested Monday night are at liberty. Fifteen of them had to furnish $1,000 bail each...Three students pleaded guilty to a charge of loitering and were fined $4.65 each. The fifteen, for whom bail was furnished by Ann Arbor businessmen, will be given a hearing on Friday."
According to various inflation calculators online, the bail would be roughly $25,000 in today's money, which seems a little steep to me. It looks like they were (literally) bailed out by some local businessmen. The $4.65 fines equate to ~$115, which sounds like a reasonable penalty.

Here is a concise overview of the issue, with the author cautiously taking the other side:

It would be such a bummer to have to play all of those weird 5* sophomores.

I mean, that would make him an expert on the topic. I think it is more damning that an Alabama fan wrote about how Ohio State's recent practices of forcing transfers, medical hardshipping, etc. are so bad.

Great analysis. I am champing at the bit to read more. By the way, thank you for using that idiom correctly. I think Larry was on to something...

Why not enforce both punishments? Arguably the main reason the whole thing was covered up was to protect the football program. The cover up indirectly led to success on the football field (no PR issues, no negative effect on recruiting, etc.), so why not punish the football program as well?

Impressed, yes. Surprised, no. I'm sure he got home, slept for 15 minutes, and then woke up ready to attack the day with enthusiasum unknown to mankind.

This all but confirms the Dougherty rumor. It looks like FootballScoop actually got something right during this coaching search.

|8 weeks 1 day ago||Common Name, But||
Greg Jackson is a common name. There are two others listed in the directory (a medical student and an alumnus), but gregjack has no information. That makes me think this Greg Jackson was recently added to the directory, which may turn out to be good news for us!

His name is Charles, he plays defense, and he was born in the mid-90s. All signs point to

Well, that explains why he is in the system already.

|8 weeks 5 days ago||Even Years||
Unfortunately, due to the new schedule, we will have to play MSU and OSU on the road in even years. It is going to be exceptionally difficult to win both of those games, especially the latter, and make it into the playoff. I think we'll have a good 2015 (9-10 wins), better 2016 (10-11 wins), and then make the playoff in 2017.

I did not realize that. Impressive.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Just 7||
Just 7, not 7!!!!. I don't think even Oregon can score ~3x10^84 points in 60 minutes. I mean, that's roughly 4,000 touchdowns per atom in the visible universe.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Gambling||
Even if you are good at gambling, I would recommend sitting out any Oregon games. Usually the lines are absurd (e.g., -22) and it's just best to hold on to your money.
