Wisconsin is a legit top 10 team and M had better play its best football next Saturday.

"And what it will turn into is this..." *mimics QB turning head towards sideline with confused look* "who's controlling the tempo now?"
He's the man

Explosiveness is such a high variance thing... let's get some more games under our belt before we start drawing conclusions about whether Michigan's defense is susceptible to big plays based on a small number of big plays given up.
Remember, at this time last year we were saying the reverse about M's offense (well, not me, but you guys were saying it) -- that Jake Rudock isn't capable of connecting on throws downfield.

Great idea to put ads in Michigan Stadium we should start putting them all over at Yellowstone and The Grand Canyon as well

I'm a Carolina alum, and as much as I hate that rat bastard.... I don't actually really hate him. He's the single greatest basketball coach to have ever lived and I have tremendous respect for all of his accomplishments.

I love the detailed questions and I love that Zordich was willing to indulge. This stuff is just great to read.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Speight: He's mentally||
He's mentally tough, he's a guy the team will want to follow, and he makes less mistakes than O'Korn which will be perfect to pair with Michigan's dominant defense.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Good, lower is better. 8||
Good, lower is better.
8 might even be too high.
After all we don't even know who will be starting at quarterback, and I sure as hell don't want to be dropping any early games because our players are complacent and/or aren't taking their opponent seriously.

I usually go to my dad's house to watch the games with him
I don't own a TV so in the rare occasion that we aren't watching the game together I'll either stream it on my PC or head to a local sports bar

Raekwon McMillan or Pat Elflein. Not only would that improve our roster at one of its weaker positions, but it would also hurt OSU.

none of those young players will really be young anymore by the time Michigan rolls into EL
|22 weeks 6 days ago||This type of thing belongs to||
This type of thing belongs to the field of Machine Learning, which exists somewhere in the intersection of statistics and computer science (and a bunch of other disciplines as well).
Have you ever learned Bayes' Theorem in a probability or statistics course? It says that if you know the probability of 'A', the probability of 'B', and the probability of 'A and B' you can then compute the probability of 'A, given B', i.e. the probability of 'A' happening when you are certain that 'B' has already happened.
One of the simplest methods in Machine Learning is called a Naive Bayes classifier. Let's say that you visit Amazon to do some online shopping, and let's assume also that Amazon is going to use a Naive Bayes classifier to make product recommendations (in reallity they are probably using some more advanced model). So let's say that you look at the book 'Bo' by Schembechler himself and Mitch Albom. Let event 'A' be 'customer views Bo book' and let event 'B' be 'customer purchases "Endzone" by John U Bacon'. Amazon has in its database the % of customers who looked at the 'Bo' book (A), the % of customers that purchased 'Endzone' (B), and the % of customers that both looked at 'Bo' and purchased 'Endzone' (A and B). Therefore they can use Bayes' Theorem to compute the probability that a customer who has viewed 'Bo' will ultimately purchase 'Endzone' (A, given B). They can compute this probability for many different products based on what you have viewed, and ultimately show you product recommendation that the model says will generate the highest average profit.
So it may be the case that you have never shopped for a foreign bride. But if the model says that customers who both like Moe's Sport Shop and Nikon camera lenses are likely to click on an ad for Ukrainian brides (and remember that the advertising service is selling clicks to ad buyers) then that's an ad that you might be shown.

Here are some highlights from the IEM CS:GO tournament in Katowice earlier this year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EM7Jm9cg4D4
when you understand the implications of the fact that the players don't see those yellow and blue outlines through the walls, only the spectators see that to give a better sense of the match flow and narrative, you understand that the competition in this is very intense - the skill ceiling of the game is much higher than what at human being is capable of.
i'd say there's enough potential for highlight worthy plays to be made to call this a sport, sure.

Dude spent how many years in the NFL? I'm sure he knows some of the basics of nutrition.
|25 weeks 8 hours ago||Sup Calinky will regress to||
Calinky will regress to its mean from 3pt land, meanwhile we have got to find a way to keep getting Joel Berry that penetration and to play defense without getting all these nickle and dime calls or this game is going to be a lot less close in the 2nd half.

Show me a big ten team that has better players in the post than UNC.
Like it or not, this UNC team is disgustingly talented. They have players deep on their bench that would have started for Michigan this year.

Actually, yes. Yes I do.

there is a simple solution here which is to make the Big Ten gymnastics championships available for online streaming for all of the 15 people who care enough to watch it.
