|6 weeks 8 min ago||There is no way to really prove||
whether it works or it doesn't. The only thing it does is send the message that Michigan football is not interested in breezy recruits and will not participate in games recruits play.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||That would be||
one heck of a TD catch to make in the corner of that end zone.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Number of applications||
does not equal desirability. End of study. End of story.

Yes, I agree that the NCAA is stupid and that smoking pot is pretty minor.............but I don't quite believe his smoked pot once story. You don't test positive by smoking a single joint, you test positive by smoking many, many joints. There amount of THC in the body is so small from one joint that it is really not detectable

about the original Gilovich article on the hot hand was that two or three out of the 30 or so players from the Sixers he used in his study actually did consistent produce the hot hand by showing streaks of makes that were outside of chance.....but somehow he fails to discuss it in his analysis.

I have read all of the hot hand peer reviewed journal articles and did some research on it in grad school. The research basically says that the hot hand is not real and is a perception by players and spectators of streaks that occur normally within the distribution of makes and misses that occur by chance. The stats that are used to assess the hot hand are based on a runs test. The major issues with hot hand research are that 1) you cannot control for everything in our multivariate environment and 2) what constitutes being hot (e.g., how many makes or misses is being hot or cold). These limitations stack the deck in a way that makes it difficult to prove the hot hand exists and makes it easier to prove that it doesn't. As someone who played college basketball I tend to think that the hot hand does exist is some way, shape or form. Chance and ability interact and are not separate. The best example that comes to mind is coin flipping. If you flip a coin the chance of heads or tails is conceivably the same, but one can also train themselves through practice to flip a coin in a manner that generates longer streaks of heads or tails.

than it did decades ago. Mass shootings and violence has been happening for hundreds of years.....it is only now you have 24 hour news and the internet to make you aware of it.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Go Wisconsin||
Can't stand these punks and Calipari.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Different game||
different circumstances. This game was a win or go home game in the tournament, not a regular season game. There was more on the line this game than with the OSU game. I would imagine the stats show that last possession shots to win the game are usually low percentage shots. The shot Kentucky took was a low percentage shot, a deep three pointer.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Do you know how much||
the coaching staff would have been excoriated by fans, the press, etc. if they intentionally fouled and Michigan lost the game? Besides, that's assuming you trust Michigan to get the rebound. It is easy to armchair it, but they played it right and the dude hit a ridiculous three.....nothing else to it.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Playing basketball||
Like football and charging down the lane to purposely make contact is not basketball...looking at you Kentucky.
That said, we didn't deserve to win with the way we were beat up down low and on the boards.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||he made a tough shot||
got to tip your cap to him
|14 weeks 5 days ago||carrying the ball||
to the rim like a football is not basketball.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Damn||
we are getting abused down low.
|15 weeks 14 hours ago||Who ever thought||
a bang could be so nerve wracking.
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||Here for the bang||
bang me good.
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||we won||
and back in the elite eight....but let's not ever do that again....ever.
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||Oh my God||
let's not do that again.....ever.
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||deserve to lose this||
total choke job
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||come on||
just a couple more minutes of solid play.
|15 weeks 16 hours ago||the only adjustment||
needed is something to stop the double pick roll to the basket.
|15 weeks 17 hours ago||Gonna be a slugfest||
tonight. that is for sure.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Yes||
I understand, but at some point it becomes irresponsible, just like with CEO pay.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||All of this has to stop at some point||
Everyone who has one or two good years all of a sudden wants to be the highest paid at their position. MLB (and most other sports for that matter) contracts have gotten way out of hand. For some perspective, I remember when Orel Hershiser was the first player to be given a one million dollar contract.
|16 weeks 22 hours ago||What happened to being worried about meeting Duke?||
and our so called stacked bracket?
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Manhattan||
would have kicked our ass tonight.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Buckle up||
it is starting to get interesting.....
|16 weeks 1 day ago||So much||
for a crisp statement game to start the tournament. Out hustled and the team looks disinterested.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Can't play like this||
and expect to win the next game that is for sure.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||"ramping up late"||
kinda sounds like the situation for every team in the tournament? I don't know that there are too many easy games once you reach the sweet sixteen. Besides, upsets happen all the time, so we don't even know if Duke or Louisville will even be there IF we get there.
