I may have watched a little too much Mythbusters in my day.

So what he's saying is DPJ is like Calvin Johnson, but fast and able to jump high. Cool, I'm on board with that.

Total career earnings north of $52 million, per Basketball Reference, so yeah I'd say he did alright.
He was an essentially replacement-level NBA player for ten seasons, the only reason he's considered a bust is because he went second overall.* If he'd been drafted at the end of the first round (1) almost no one would remember him and (2) the people who did remember him would remember him as a mediocre but serviceable big man.
*EDIT: And yes, the fact that he was absolutely does make him a bust. Point is that he had an okay career in the end.

Hurray! I love Name of the Year with an irrational fervor. This year's bracket features UM commit Luiji Vilain, who was nominated (along with fellow NOTY contestant Bumper Pool) by yours truly.*
*And probably other people but in my heart of hearts I know I was first.

I always do a mascot bracket, too!
Let's see, Badger vs. Hokie is easy. Spartan vs. a Hurricane, still pretty easy. But then what about Bearcast vs. Wildcat? Bearcat sounds bigger but maybe it'd just be chilled out and a wildcat would fuck it up on sheer willpower. Tiger vs. Fighting Irish? Tigers are fierce but Fighting Irish are too drunk to feel pain, and they're pretty scrappy, possibly armed, and multiple. Still probably give the edge to the Tiger there.
One of my favorite annual traditions.

Wonder if anyone is quantifying this. On a related note, it would be awesome to be able to visualize KenPom ranking over the course of the season, as a way of seeing who got hot when. Doesn't even seem like it'd be that hard for someone who knew what they were doing. (Obviously that would have some limitations, e.g. bias against teams that started from the top and now they there. Still, it'd be neat.)

Wait so how many kids per year do you think get cash? Fewer than 311 kids? If just the SEC has bagmen and the top, say, 10 players in each class get some cash, that's 140 kids. Assuming that other P5 conferences have bagmen at least half as generous (5 kids paid per school per class, on average), that's another ~250 kids.
Obviously those numbers are wild guesses and my assumptions may be off-base. But it doesn't seem unreasonable to think that every four-star in the country gets at least offered money.

This makes me wonder how Funk still gets work as an OL coach; he's on the new Indiana State staff someone posted the other day. Must be a really nice guy? Have a lot of dirt on people?

Not that this is the end-all and be-all, but one analysis found that combine bench performance is actually signficant for predicting CB success in the NFL, in fact moreso than for most other positions and than all other combine measurements other than the 40: http://harvardsportsanalysis.org/2015/02/the-combine-actually-matters-part-2/.
