Not sure why people didn't realize this in the first place, but it's all about how we distribute our good luck.
We obviously used up all our "good karma" early in 2013. For example, starting at the beginning of the year, we had an allotment of 100% and used probably 80% on basketball. Seriously, 25% of it was probably used on Trey's shot against Kansas alone.
We just need to better allocate this mojo more equally. Spread it out evenly.

I got my student tickets past the deadline around July 20th. I would not be surprised if there is still availability.
Depending on if you were a student at Michigan before, you could just renew your student season tickets. It should automatically allow you with your username and pass to renew without a new application.
If you're new to the university, contact the mtickets email address. They probably need to give you a pin to login. Also, follow the protocol for waitlisted tickets -- they got back to me in under a week.
As both an alumnus and a new grad student, the process was pretty confusing because they have a separate page for alumni season tickets and a separate page for students. I called in and they said it's a common error. Best of luck on your tickets, and congrats on law school.

Anyone know where he got his doctorate from?

I'm curious as to when refs in basketball are supposed to review plays? I understand that there are blown calls - we're human. Isn't that what video review is for?
Honestly, does anyone here know when or how a ref determines that something needs to be reviewed? In college basketball, it's seems completely arbitrary to me, and it seems like easy low-hanging fruit that officials can address to prevent this from happening again (i.e. coaches challenges).

The "bleed out" jersey's, although nearly impossible to look at, was an attempt by Adidas to mimic the color of the sun for Burke. Thank you for helping me fully understand those uniforms.

as he's rather well respected statistician. He's actually most notably known for projecting all 50 states correctly in the last presidential election.
Lastly, he alludes to using kenpom, so it's not like his numbers are coming from nowhere. Full breakdown of his pre-tournament analysis here.

...and starting a real job.
Nothing is as eye opening as graduating from college and realizing most people just spend most of their work day just surfing the internets. Fortunately I found a good place to hangout.
As for posting actively, today is my birthday!
