Third of Five Stages of Grief: Bargaining
|1 week 20 hours ago||We are ranked #9 in total||
We are ranked #9 in total defense, but #50 in defensive FEI.
Pretty obvious what is going on here. Total defense is not adjusted for number of possessions or garbage time. Defensive FEI is, however: "The Fremeau Efficiency Index (FEI) considers each of the nearly 20,000 possessions every season in major college football. All drives are filtered to eliminate first-half clock-kills and end-of-game garbage drives and scores. A scoring rate analysis of the remaining possessions then determines the baseline possession efficiency expectations against which each team is measured. A team is rewarded for playing well against good teams, win or lose, and is punished more severely for playing poorly against bad teams than it is rewarded for playing well against bad teams."
Some combination of garbage time, low tempo, and/or crushing shitty teams is inflating our traditional stats and making us look like a top 10 defense. Obviously, we do not have a top 10 defense.

But yea, great showing for the CONCACAF. How much longer until we get another qualifying slot?

I got the first edition, because it was a new and interesting idea.
To be honest, the content of the book got stale really quickly. I'd rather spend my dollars on mgoshirts, as they are still useful 2 months after I receive them. This website is always updated with new and well-written articles, so I don't have a burning desire for that incremental content.

What a bummer.
We should have a similar but less stringent policy for current student-athletes as well. I still feel guilty about a comment I made saying Jack Miller didn't look like strong enough given his weight.

Re: Compensation Plan
I think its important to look at the tax implications for the NCAA and the players. That system sounds like some new type of deferred compensation that hasn't been vetted by the IRS.
1) Amateur status - gone (what does this do to the NCAA and its tax-exempt status?)
2) I can see a few ways in which the athletes might have to pay taxes on earnings they haven't even seen yet. That makes the situation worse in the near-term. Can you imagine the tax bill that Denard would see if he had been paid either through endorsements or performance incentives?

simple solution to your problem. get an RSS reader like feedly.
helps me read the articles i want to read without missing articles or hitting refresh all the time on the websites i go to.
bonus: sometimes they post an article too early, quickly take it down, and then re-post later that day. i think the staff is trying to spread the content out throughout the day. the internet never forgets, and neither does an RSS reader.
