Those sites don't crash when there's news to report or when too many people visit. They crash in major, rare incidents.
And those sites invest in teams of people to analyze what they're readership wants in a website from content to user experience. We can give Brian that feedback for free.

I almost exclusively view the site via the app now because a) ads and b) it looks like a high schooler's site that's stuck in the late 90s.
I'm also getting real annoyed with the inability to handle moderate traffic spikes.

Not if you put a fried egg and bacon on it. Then it's breakfast.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Evidence of paying players?||
Evidence of paying players? Actual salary cap details? Dude, you should take your evidence to the NCAA and all major news outlets instead of posting on MGoBlog.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Ha. Those questions in the||
Ha. Those questions in the Harris threads about "when are we going to have an actual every-down, NFL-caliber back?"
Coulda, woulda, shoulda.

Emotional / psychological issues because he tripped up some people over two seasons? Yep, username checks out. Lol.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Yep. Well you can't suspend||
Yep. Well you can't suspend him after the first time, that could've been incidental. Second time raises eyebrows so maybe you have an off-court conversation or non-public punishment to make sure it doesn't become a thing. Third time, yeah, it's a pattern...maybe you suspend him then.
In the end, maybe this suspension is one incident late...but you can't go from nothing to three game suspension. Hell, that would've been more than Suh was suspended for stomping on a dude with his previous pattern of extra-curriculars, too.
I guess you should've suspended him half a game after the 3rd time...maybe even a full game then to show you're serious. But alas, they can't change the past.

Do we have other proxies for non-basketball technicals and associated suspensions?
I'm thinking a flagrant elbow swing to the face technical. A trip is less damaging than that, IMO. Do we see suspensions for the elbow technicals? If so, are they multiple games?
Fwiw, I'm totally fine with a One game suspension. He got a technical, was benched a game on top of it, and hopefully that rectifies the situation. If not, 3 game suspension next.
It's just a trip.

Oh, for sure. But in Woodson's case, he was blessed with longevity, luck, etc.
In the moment, it's hard to fathom the stars align so that you can become a true legend...let alone have a 20-year career to render $1.5M (or whatever) inconsequential.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Well if you're top-10, you're||
Well if you're top-10, you're more at the mercy of team needs in the top and can shuffle around. If anything, you'd be more likely to drop than move up a few spots unless you were lucky and someone needed a safety (and wanted to take one top-5, which is another debate in and of itself).

I'd be thinking of how my grandkids that are sitting bedside could've had their college paid for if I left early instead of tearing my ACL in game 3, not getting to play against OSU, losing that game nonetheless, and never healing properly enough to pass team physicals and becoming an afterthought.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Agree. A year in college||
Agree. A year in college instead of a year in the NFL could be, say, $1.5M lost in career earnings. If someone told me I had to effectively pay someone $125,000 for every game I play in college - in addition to going to class and making sure grades are up - I'd tell them they're insane.

Not really surprising given he was scheduled to meet with superiors today.

Three top-5 guards coming out of HS. And the #1 center. And another 4-star. And Samuelson.

I'm not accustomed to Santa using such language. Happy fucking new year, nonetheless!

Champion'chip'? Is that, like, a Cheddar and Sour Cream Ruffles vs Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt Kettle Cooked showdown?

Board posts that are just copies of someone else's tweet with no additional commentary, insights, or general value added. You know who you are.
The fact that this site is so popular - and even gets citations by ESPN - but can't get a god damn proper server so that everything won't crash during a high schooler's commitment.
I hate you all.

Your odds of winning are essentially # of tickets / number of possible permutations. Let's say for the sake of math there are 10,000 permutations of each of the three you buy (it's much much higher in reality:
Your odds of winning are:
If you put all 9 tickets toward one game your odds of winning would be:
So, you only really increase your odds if you overindex your money into the game that has fewer permutations. That said, the payoffs are lower. So what you COULD do is calculate the $ payoff / permutations for that particular week and put all of your money into that game.
That said, $150/week pooled into an index fund that would earn 5% annually would be worth, like, $900k in 40 years.
Just start a death pool and the last one alive gets to keep it or its split amongst everyone equally in 40 years. Things could get real interesting in year 39.

I wouldn't be taking my tests if I were going pro in the same year. But that's just me. I'm a lesser man.

I was on my phone and meant to type 'without'. :(
That's like telling a joke and forgetting the second half of the punchline and saying "well, nevermind, but trust me it was hilarious."

Read this online: Show starts at Noon; Playoff selection will be around 1230; they will rabble for a while. Then, Orange, Rose, Sugar and Cotton selections will start at 230 and show ends at 4.

I understand it to mean that Clarence assumed all posts must be OT once the regular season ends.
