Pitino and Izzo could have an "excuse off." Not sure who would be favored.

There is no way in hell Peppers is still on the board after round 1. I'll eat my crow if that happens, but I feel like there's no way virtually every team passes on a talent like that.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Noise||
Serious question... are there relatively quiet motorcycles that aren't scooters? Like, powerful enough to take on the highway, but quiet enough to not ruin the day of everyone you pass? Say, no louder than your average 4-6 cylinder sedan.

Exactly. I'm a Detroit native and Lions fan living in San Diego. While I would never have become a "Chargers fan" the way I am with the Lions, I still like to get into my local sports teams as long as they're not rivals. I support the Padres and go to 10+ games per year, but with the Chargers, what was the point? Why invest in a team that has one foot out the door? Good riddance.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I get what you are saying,||
I get what you are saying, but point spreads are collective predictions that manifest in a prediction market. The goal is to maximize house profits, sure, but the consequence is a collective prediction for the outcome of the game, especially when performed on the scale of a CFP game.

I have no idea why people are so upset about this post. I thought it was relevant to the case that there's no legitimacy to any claim regarding Harbaugh and the Rams. The OP isn't legitimizing it by pointing out how Vegas thinks it's a ridiculous long shot.

I'm thirty, been watching the lions since I can remember and I've NEVER seen anything like this. Lions benefitting from calls??? Wos

Yeah it's bad. It's not so bad if you have the package or Red Zone and can flip to another game, but if you're a single team fan or just watching your local broadcast, it's brutal.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||I'd like to see them keep||
I'd like to see them keep building the OL. Ebron has been less than stellar but not willing to give up on him yet. Plus Pettigrew has been hurt (also not stellar though). If Levy is legit back, and when Abdullah comes back, I think they're looking solid at nearly all positions which is nuts to think about. They might need to replace Boldin so I'm expecting a WR pick relatively early.

It's not lose... they look BAD. This is worst case scenario. Even if Clemson drops, our resume takes a big hit. Barring a Colorado miracle playoff hopes were stampeded by buffalo dung tonight.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||First of all, AWESOME job on||
First of all, AWESOME job on the site. I got:
Alabama (100%), OSU (88%), Michigan (71%), Clemson (67%), Washington (60%), Wisconsin (44%), PSU (33%) and Colorado (22%).
I of course could tell which one Michigan was but really tried to be objective. Prior to this, I would have assumed I would have the same results but with Michigan and Clemson flipped.
I know of course they won't, but it would an interesting exercise for the committee or writers/talking heads to take before they go all hot take crazy. Will this be updated after bowl games? The advanced metric profiles, Top10/25 W-L will change, etc. It would be really interesting to see then. Thanks!

Unless one hit big on a winning scratch-off lottery ticket, I doubt it.

I have 7 at work and 10 at home. I don't get the Windows 10 girping. Maybe if you work in IT or tech support there are issues, but as your run of the mill user with a history in IT, I really like it. Super clean, works really well, etc. Then again, I don't have much to complain about with 7 either. 8 and 8.1 were both garbage in my opinion though.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Welcome back! Biggest||
Biggest takeaway I have from your post...
"Championship teams win in the 4th quarter."
So, the Lions are winning the Super Bowl baby!!!
|16 weeks 4 days ago||I was only able to watch the||
I was only able to watch the second half due to commuting home (west coast time), but the refs seemed to be doing an excellent job, and by excellent, I mean I didn't notice them at all. Michigan just collapsed as they do often. I've never seen a team lose a ten point lead so quickly on such a consistent basis. If they're up 10 with more than 3 mins left against a quality-ish opponent, they will blow the lead every time without fail. Not necessarily lose, but they will blow the lead in less than 60 seconds.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||This also, if my mathing is||
This also, if my mathing is correct, places the odds of either/both teams losing at ~40%. If we truly believe the BTCG doesn't matter and we just need either to fall, we're looking at a 40/60 shot. Not that bad!
|16 weeks 4 days ago||For the record, Vegas has||
For the record, Vegas has this OR scenario as ~40% chance of happening, given the board post about the parlay betting line being -150.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||In this scenario, you need||
In this scenario, you need both teams to win. Not against the spread, just win, which is why he specified money line. So, a $100 bet would yield $166 or $66 net winnings.
Edit: Bad math. As others said, easier to imagine the betting amount as the +/-#, so $150 would yield 100. 100 would yield 66.

Beilein: What gives? That's a legitimate pick!

|16 weeks 5 days ago||How bad does this potentially||
How bad does this potentially suck for Western? Try to schedule a couple of big name opponents (who end up being quite bad), run the whole damn table, and still get relegated to the Motor City PizzaPalooza Bowl or whatever they're calling it now. Discouraging would be a gross understatement.

I'm glad Kelly can "explore options" while limiting Zaire's.

Absolutely right. Though we statistically dominated UW in that game, people will remember that it was close and won on an insane Lewis pick. Though PSU had some injuries, people will remember that we destroyed them by a wide margin. The committee considers head-to-head and Conf. Championships (weight TBD) when teams are close, so I like our chances better when we are being compared to the team we destroyed.
|17 weeks 9 hours ago||The committee should learn||
The committee should learn it's lesson from last year. I actually do buy the argument that PSU and Wisconsin are "deserving" if they win the conference, but in reality, they're vying for a chance to get slaughtered like MSU v Bama 2015. Now, Michigan may also get slaughtered by Bama, but they likely have the best shot to make it competitive among teams vying for spot #4. I'm aware that's not how it works and fans of those teams will always want the opportunity, but I have a hard time believing there's a team with a better shot to make 1 v 4 a game worth watching.
