"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Glanced at the Hudl video and it looks like he's going untouched every snap. Is he that good at finding holes?

They don't count their first loss as part of the season record, because "that's their prerogative"?

I feel for your and wish for the hard times to be over. Good luck and enjoy the game!

That'll teach me to half-read stuff while at work.

You're regressing x on x + noise. Of course the relationship's gonna be positive!
RYPR = (receiving yards / total team plays) * Passing S&P+
receiving yards = f(# of targets), with f defined as a function with good linear approximation.
Multiplying by (s&p/plays) introduces noise but does not fix the fallacious reasoning.

PPV prices for bars are typically calculated based on the venue's capacity. It's fine for them to charge a 20$ cover.

$18 in 1969 is the equivalent of about $120 in 2015. Gotta account for inflation dude.

You know, not every rant is interesting or insightful. Some are neither.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Right||
I was mostly joking, but I guess this didn't come out too well in writing.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||friends||
A lot of my grad student friends lived on the west side, just before Wasthenaw Dairy, or in Kerry town (north of campus). All walking distance to the diag, and reasonable rent.
Just tell her to avoid the neighborhood south of campus (basically between the diag and the stadium). It's full of dirty, dirty undergrads.

Basically, the only way this turns into a traumatic experience is if you (the parent) make it one.

Relax a bit. Adolescents discovering sexuality, nothing weird about that.
Make sure you talk to your daughter about the fact that porn doesn't portray real life sexual interactions accurately. She needs to know what to expect when she's exposed to it (she will be, regardless of what you do).
The other girl's sexual orientation is not your concern. Different people are attracted by different things; it's all part of our beautiful diverse world.
No big deal, really.

Made the same drive a month ago. Sucks.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Profs are way different||
In the fields I know, the profs from the AA campus are at a complete different place than does in Dearborn in terms of research. The AA folks are field-defining. The ones from Dearborn are ok/good, but don't travel in the same circles. This makes a big difference, as the AA students are much more likely to become acquainted with cutting-edge work and top-flight individuals.
Sounds crass, but it's a reality.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Causal identification||
As lots of people have noted, the main problem for inference here is that first round players are better than second round players, so the "round effect" might be a result of prior factors rather than the draft process itself.
If you want to improve causal identification of the "round effect", you could do what folks call "regression discontinuity": essentially, you compare players who fell right next to important cut points. For instance, compare the three last players of the first round to the three first players of the second round. In principle, there shouldn't be much fundamental difference in quality between those two sets of players. This could give you a better estimate of the causal effect of being selected in an early round.
