Missed an opportunity how? Who are the better available coaches that he missed out on? Do you expect him to have Bill Belicheck for an OC and Pete Caroll coaching cornerbacks?

Go back to the post where Brian compared position coaches against the Hoke team, and tell me where you think we're legitimately stepping down? Yeah, many of the guys are from "struggling" programs. That's why they are available! And why many of them are taking demotions to coach at Michigan.

Henne didn't have competition either - Matt Gutierrez blew out his shoulder and Henne had to start.

You're not Greek. You pay for membership in a campus social organization that happens to have Greek letter on the building. Which is fine, you've got a right to do that. But somewhere poor Aristotle is spinning.
|6 days 18 hours ago||You're ruining our nerd cred!||
You're ruining our nerd cred! Air has mass - all else being equal, a ball at higher pressure gets that way by cramming more air into the same volume, hence more mass.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Read the rest of the thread -||
Read the rest of the thread - your numbers are wrong because 12.5 psi is actually 27.2 psi (you need to add ambient atmospheric pressure to the gauge pressure). The real temp ends up being somewhere around 80-90 degrees.
|1 week 2 hours ago||We don't know that it was||
We don't know that it was "exactly" the same amount (that would be almost impossible, even if you were trying), and in any case temperature, which will be near constant, is going to be a much bigger impact than variations in how the balls are used.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Any gas you could reasonably||
Any gas you could reasonably inflate a football with would be equally subject to the ideal gas law, so no.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Relating to the 12th ball,||
Relating to the 12th ball, kicks use a different set of balls. Also, do we actually know that all 11 under inflated balls were exactly 2psi low? I think "11 balls were under inflated, by as much as 2psi" is much more likely.
|1 week 5 hours ago||I'm just curious where you||
I'm just curious where you came up with 41psi in the first place? It actually does matter quite a bit, since (41/39) < (27/25), by a fair amount (again it's the ratios that matter).
|1 week 5 hours ago||The other thing is that||
The other thing is that compressing air heats it. So even if they inflated at room temp, but measured right after inflating, you'd get a warm ball and therefore "overestimate" the pressure.
|1 week 5 hours ago||You're overthinking - none of||
You're overthinking - none of that really matters in this context. You don't have to assume any particular number of moles, since n will stay constant (assuming no air loss). R is a universal constant, so throw that out too. And you don't have to worry about converting units, as long as you use absolute values (psi is fine, for temp you'd need Rankine).
|1 week 5 hours ago||Your math is right but I||
Your math is right but I think your numbers are wrong - shouldn't the initial pressure be more like 27.2 psi (gauge pressure of 12.5 plus sea level air pressure of ~14.7 psi)?
|1 week 1 day ago||If "everyone is thinking"||
If "everyone is thinking" that the Patriots intentionally stuck a TV at a restaurant in the parking lot so that Belicheck can watch replays, or that the Pats (and only the Pats) are using towel boys to spy on the visitor's locker room, then I'm sorely disappointed in everyone.

Fpr some reason everytime we go outside the US the hosts refer to as "Michigan University". I think it's a British-English convention thing.

Actually they've been doing a lot of solar work in the UAE, for obvious reasons (tons of sun and land that's not terribly useful for anything else). PI played a big role in creating the race, and had a very new, but extremely well funded team.
Plus all the Emirates (and by extension their universities) are run by ludicrously wealthy oil sheiks who love to lavishly spend money on cool and expensive but not necessarily practical things. Solar race cars are insanely cool, stupidly expensive, and laugh at practicality. QED.

I think the point was that McGary seriously considered going pro after his freshman year (and no one would have thought him crazy), even though he didn't start looking like an NBA caliber player until the tournament.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Not sure if you caught it but||
Not sure if you caught it but I was poking fun at MichiganTeacher apparently seriously applying a percentage calculation to a ranking, not trying to validate (or invalidate) the USNews rankings. In any case, UofM is, has been, and will continue for the foreseeable future to be among the top tier of public institutions, and I don't think MSC materially affected that really, certainly not in any major negative way.

The poster was trying to say "negged into oblivion" and it came out "Bolivian".

So if MichiganTeacher graduated from Michigan during MSC's tenure, that might be a legitimate criticism right there...

Of course, there's a lot more to recruiting - you have to figure out which guys to make that pitch to, and that's not something Jackson will have had much experience with.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Give available "Legends" to||
Give available "Legends" to the hardest working freshmen after their first year on campus, before they become established as another number. If one of them becomes "Legendary", add their name to the patch. Eventually you could have a "wall of Legends" with the most distinguished players to wear each number.

Bo didn't "create" the idea of helmet stickers. And he wasn't infallible. I'd think a fashion guru such as yourself would realize how ugly they are on the winged helmet, and a history buff such as yourself would recognize that their time at Michigan was relatively fleeting, if we're going to play the "tradition" card.

Even in that scenario you'd only be down by 8, and it's still a "one score" game. Better than nobody scoring and losing by one because you didn't even try to tie.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Why didn't OSU go for two.||
Why didn't OSU go for two. People always say "it's too early" but what does that even mean? Under what plausible scenario is being down by one preferable to being 50-50 to tie / be down by two? Heck, when is down by two actually worse than down by one, unless you're planning to score a safety?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||So the only knock against||
So the only knock against Manning is that he was given an impossible task for one year and did predictably badly at it? Not only had he never coached CBs before but he was asked to switch systems without the personnel to do it. His work at LB coach seemed good, and he has always been labelled a great recruiter - his RB coaching record is limited but apparently good. So if Harbaugh takes a look at him and says he's worth keeping around, I think we ought to be okay with that.
