Your conclusion (na gonna happen) is fine but I don't think we want the chance of a particular given person choosing correctly (147.57 quintillion) but of SOME person doing so - the chance of the event happening at all.
We've got 11.57 million tickets to the "perfect bracket" lottery on ESPN alone. So one way of calculating the chance of someone getting a perfect bracket on ESPN are presumably .....ohf*ck someone else calculate it for me.
But this is still not right, because we are not picking a truly random event. It would only be the right calculation if Kentucky vs. Hampton etc had a 50/50 outcome.
Imagine I, a middle-aged college professor with a negative vertical leap, were playing a competitive game of HORSE v. Trey Burke. And yall were betting on it. Lots of people would win that one, not just 50%, because the outcome would not be a random event. Now imagine Trey Burke is playing vs. 63 middle-aged professors in a bracket. The probability of a winning bracket existingn would not be 1 out of 147.57 quintillion.

|7 weeks 20 hours ago||Dartmouth was down 1 with 2.5||
Dartmouth was down 1 with 2.5 seconds and did this to Yale 10 days ago and won the game. This shot is responsible for Harvard's appearance in the NCAA because it meant Yale was forced into a playoff game at Harvard (which Yale also lost at the last second).

He is a much better fit where he is, just like afar is a better fit in his current position.

I have no idea what autocorrect thought it was doing there. Sorry guys the actual word was "heave"
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Ok what about Ivies||
So thankfully the Yale Bulldogs were defeated last night by a full court HRACE and buzzer beater by Dartmouth. This means Harvard and Yale are tied at the top of the league and must play a tiebreaker game next Saturday. The winner dances, but my question to y'all is
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Perfect combo||
David's wife Nic runs those events and I can attest that she is pretty much a human ray of sunshine. Or comes as close as anyone I know :)
It's a little hard to imagine this crowd without a beer in our collective hands but when the sports season winds down I am definitely giving Brillig a try.

|11 weeks 18 hours ago||I also live in Detroit||
(Part-Time) and I will miss when Detroit FC moves!!
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I get why you prefer full-time||
But if you don't get into the full-time program, it is something to consider. I'm pretty sure it's easier to get in :) although the program is quite strong.
You could actually get some part-time work instead of your current job, if that will sustain you, and you still wouldn't need to relocate.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Well that works if you just go to network||
If you actually learn anything while you're at school, that has a separate effect on your employability relative to the networking factor.
And you don't seem to have suffered for lack of networking abilities yourself.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||If it doesn't come to pass||
Consider our weekend MBA program - every other weekend for two years. If you are not an epic distance away from A2 this is a workable alternative to full time, providing your current job is not too miserable to endure through that period.

....congrats and good luck to your awesome daughter!
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I don't think we can blame "culture of success" re: Detroit||
Let me tell you what it takes for a kid to get involved in, say, robotics, in local suburban schools: you show up to the robotics club meeting at lunch or after school. Done.
Let me tell you what it takes for one kid to get involved in robotics in Detroit: every Saturday he has to get on one bus to downtown, then another to Midtown, where the only robotics team in town operates. This is the DETROIT bus system we are talking about. Then he has to make the return trip. He has to do this around any opportunity for employment, homework time, the needs of his family, etc.
Or what about this kid: she's in foster care, has been in three different schools in five years, has got herself a job and gets herself there and back every week, college counsellor literally once in ten years sent a kid past community college, has 500 kids on her roster, and has no earthly idea what the Common App even IS?
How can we attribute this to "no culture of success? rather than NO RESOURCES FOR SUCCESS. You're right that the system are poorly funded, but how we can attribute this to having, well, the wrong "culture", I dunno man that seems pretty mean. I don't think you meant it that way but it does.
PS These kids are real not theoretical - the first one got admitted to Harvard but chose Stanford. The second one is applying to schools this year.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Alum?||
If you ever want to do alum interviews of local kids, let me know (unless you already do!). There are some really amazing HS kids around here.
It is also often cheaper for a low SES kid to go to Harvard than to UM.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||This is a fantastic book||
And should be required reading for everyone on this thread interested in the topic.

Which was much more balanced.
Sometimes I think that this blog is the only place where the words "sports" and "journalism" genuinely belong in the same sentence.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||You don't lack the grace||
But you do lack the facts. A wealthy kid can afford to screw around in a major where a bootstrap kid cannot. You won't find so many art history majors with mechanics dads, but if your folks can pop for grad school someplace maybe you can swing art history.
And really what is meant by a "competitive" major - have you got anything other than your own prejudices to show that working class kids are not working as hard as you?
And you think sociology is easy? Not if you do it right.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Thank you sir||
This is a pet issue of mind as I came from regular folks and went to a school full of posh people. And that was back when posh was 6200 a year not 62000.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Oh dear||
People who think the money is a non issue are less likely to have any. The premium is $120k you could invest in grad school. The NU option leaves you rolling in debt for years compared to the UM option
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I agree||
Think of the extra 120 to Northwestern as money you would no longer have for grad school
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Michigan is better in every way||
I used to be on the Northwestern faculty so I am pretty confident in saying that although it may be a bit "posher" than UM, on average UM is the better school.

I'd say the high schools are better here than in South Lyon, if you are ambitious (sends lots of kids to elite schools), although this is likely to change eventually. I have a niece and nephew raising a family in South Lyon, they get more for their money in terms of real estate but less in terms of culture, walkable "town" vibe, etc.

Having sufficient capacity for the strongest surges would be like building a 250.000 seat Big House. It would be expensive, and Most of the time it would be an underutilized resource; and prevent us from making more important investments (coaching).

The buyouts happen because the candidate are risk-averse: you're taking a chance when you move, and if things don't work out, you'd be worse off. So you get a better quality candidate if you offer a buyout in the contract.

Harvard's endowment is in the billions I think; it would not substantially change its bank balance by adding "media money" (and yes, "insane" would be the word for media money directed at public interest in Ivy football).
Did you actually READ the article? It describes the change in Harvard athletics as being driven by the school's policy to offer free rides to EVERY student with a family income less than $60,000. This is not a device to buy athletes, it is offered to every single student with that income profile.
Yeah sure money corrupts; in this case, however, the money is being used to offer all kinds of amazing students an opportunity at a debt-free education. At the "big boy" schools the football players get this kind of deal but not the future physicists, teachers, novelists, etc.

|31 weeks 19 hours ago||Not this||
Sorry. Fans supporting athletics are nice, but they are not why we're here. Why Brandon matters is because he reflects poorly on the primary (academic) mission of the school. If the non-U fans were mad and signed your petition, but no one within the university or alums cared, this would already be over by now.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||Really money does NOTHING||

Well it would be nice but how do we know it is not a deliberate pseudonym?
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Cool; and a follow-up question||
Given that one-seeds often enough play other one-seeds in the final, is perhaps the likeilihood of of a one-seed winning understated? If East 1-seed plays West 1-seed, the winning percentage for a given one-seed team is 50%, although there is a 100% chance of one-seed winning the game.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Breathe deeply||
7 upsets in 23 years = 7/(23*4) = 7.6% chance.
92.4% chance we win, 7.6% chance THEY win which is a little better than 12 to 1 odds. Those are pretty good odds!

That would help us tease apart whether this is really about demographics or really about some states being basketball state
So my difficulty is the implication that some states do well because of "demographics" (.e.g race) and others because they are "basketball states."
That is, "controlling for" the presence of black players in order to determine the remaining effect (that is, removing the effects of demographics from the rest of the analysis).
Also I think perhaps you have the numerator and denominator mixed up.
You are proposing:
# of players regardless of race
"Total Black population"
Could that really be what you meant?
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Really? Really?||
Did not one but two posters just suggest that the figures are distorted by the presence of actual black players who should be removed so we could calculate whether a state is a "real" basketball state?

I notice that stubhub has no seats available for lower section 1 or 201, so I figured those are reserved for teams to distribute, but I don't know how.
I also notice that the number of tickets available for Saturday (I cant get down there Friday) has been increasing over the past 24 hours, which I assumes also means the prices will have to soften a little.

Pretty certain he was an engineering major.
Zoltan Space Emperor of Space was a business major - which required like a 3.5 in his first two years just to get into the program.
Zac Ciullo I don't know what his undergrad was in but whatever his major was, his record was sufficient to be admitted to UM law school.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Out of state||
I believe UM takes loads more out of state students than UNC, which is vastly harder from out of the state than from within. Your grades look good - if you can get up the ACT a bit even better.
My main serious piece of advice is to get your recommendations from a teacher who is actually a GOOD WRITER and knows admissions pretty well. On some forms, for example, it really matters (as a general, not UM specific observation) if the teacher marks you as being absolutely at the top of the class among students they've seen, or merely pretty close. It matters if they can explain WHY they think you are outgoing hardworking insightful etc etc instead of just saying "any school would be glad to have him."
If UM does interviews (I don't think they generally do but someone can correct me), make sure to come prepared and knowledgeable about the school. Dont ask questions that you could have googled, that always seems lazy to me. Anything you can find out on-line, you should already know.
If you write an essay for a school, make sure your knowledge of the school and its fit for you are really evident; not by just claiming "I"m a good fit," but by demonstrating whatevr that school craves (independent spirit, scholarship, intellectual curiosity, a good 40 time, etc etc.)
I do a LOT of admissions interviewing for another school and these are things that have stuck out to me over the year. Good luck and go blue
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Let's use Occam on this||
The simplest explanation (making the fewest assumptions) is usually the best.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Expectations (Statistically speaking)||
If you assign a 40% chance of winning to "not favored", 55% to "favored but hard", 70% to "favored but dangerous" and 85% to "easy wins", I get the following (barring some math errors which are surely presen because I'm doing this on the back of an envelope)
UM = 7 current wins + expected 6.7 remaining = 13.7 total conference wins
Staee = 7 current wins plus 6.25 remaining = 13.25 wins
Iowa = 5 current wins plus 6.8 remaining = 11.8 wins
Wisky = 4 current wins plus 7.1 remaining = 11.1 wins
Yall are welcome to slap some other probabilities up there, I don't imagine it would change the expectation order very much. Interesting to note that that, UM's expectation is 3rd of 4 (i.e. it still has a very tough schedule head compared to Wisky and Iowa.

Huzzah is right!! Enjoy the kids and your time off.

I'm ok with it being investigated, but it does smell kinda funny (we were minding our own business and this guy came outta nowhere and punched me .... And in an hour or two I got it looked into).
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Oh no you caught me.||
Even my kids did not know about my criminal lycanthropic past.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Yellow. I'm the one in yellow.||
To be more specific I am the yellow blotch on the shoulder of the guy in the blue shirt to the left of Mitch.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Holy crap||
I am in that shot
|1 year 19 weeks ago||How do you do that||
I was going to post a photo so thanks.

Come on up to the D and represent urban gardens to the people who need them here. I have a friend who works for Keep Growing Detroit (she is a big Wolverine fan I wouldn't be surprised if she sees this post and her dad will for sure) and I bet she knows a lot of people who would come out to hear about your operation. And I bet you could exchange a lot of good advice!
|1 year 20 weeks ago||NFL Scout to coach||
.....let's take the guy with a very limited record at WR who has some unknown significant injury.
DG to self: A or B: A) Shoot for a WR spot with limited experience and coming off an injury or B) Let's try putting together a complete season at the position I've intended to play for years, put the 13 season behind me, and THEN enter the draft.

There is nothing I can offer but sympathy, but you have 110% of that.

That would be nice.

As my grandma would have said. All our best thoughts and prayers. You are in good hands at the U

But I presume you would rather that they take i94 west to 127 North?
That's crazy talk, man.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Nah||
People applauded when they scored
|1 year 27 weeks ago||You're in luck bro||
This is no longer true (I am looking at BTN2GO on my phone rightnow).
(EDIT: meant to be a reply to the "not with Comcast" guy.)
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Sounds chronic||
They are being far too coy for a injury with a known prognosis. Hope the kid is ok.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||I was there too||
I used to live in Evanston (my son was born there) close to the field; I took him back for that game and we walked up from our hotel. It really was a perfect fall weekend and the second half rocked too. Northwestern fans are very gracious - imagine walking back to a hotel through a crowd of Staee fans

Eight- mile walk around the island hopefully listening to a game streaming.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Sheesh||
It can't at all be attributed to luck and randomness when we are comparing it (as in the chart) to other teams. Luck and randomness apply to everyone, and can be positive as well as negative. The difference between us and other teams we gotta own up to.

Would you rather have the resources of a 2 or 3 time national champion or clean up a program someone else messed with? Any amount of money Texas can bring to the table I expect Bama can match.

Ever, man. How did they do those projections in the field ?

Gallon and Countess, a double-point apiece seems fair.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Park downtown||
In Evanston near the El or even in Chi. If it's nice it's not even an impossible walk from downtown Evanston. Parking near the stadium is a drag though and it's in a surprisingly residential neighborhood so getting there and away in a car is painful and time-consuming. I used to live in that neighborhood!
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Very cool, thanks.||
Averages lie all the time; I like the analysis of medians.
But there is a selection-bias problem with using this kind of analysis as an indicator of a RB's ability: RBs are definitely not randomly assigned to runs (ergo the "third down back", etc.).
Some backs might be sent out because of their ability to make the best of a short-yardage situation, and are lucky to get the 3 yards.
(There are econometric models designed to deal with this problem, but they would bore most of mgoreaders).
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I didn't throw any picks either.||
Put me in.

Hi Amy and Christian!

Michigan has opponents and sometimes you can get the games on their channels
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Your friends argument is QB v RB right||
It's an advantage any quarterback would have vs a running back, if I understand the argument right, because the RB will block for the QB but less likely the other way around.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||I was in the student section||
For the NW game and yes I was guilty of being absent for much of the second half

Female. 55, married to fellow UM prof who is a local boy ( Plymouth), grew up in Bloomington IN so prior to my MI years more of a Bball person. Daughter 14 finds non-horse sports boring but son 19 and nephew (hi Dave!) maybe 32 (?) my constant game companions.

A commercial flight can easily be documented. If Kiffin is on the level he can produce this evidence
|1 year 37 weeks ago||If that's too pricy||
You can simulate bathroom access, absence of food lines, running around space by choosing "regular" seats very high up (90+).

|1 year 38 weeks ago||Get seats high in SW corner 18, 19||
This is where we sit The higher the better actually - as you will be able to access the bathrooms (there is a family bathroom) very quickly, and spend less time lining up to go up and down the stairs (take the tower stairs and come down). If you are row 92+ you also get some shade.

As opposed to a cafe town. However if you are looking for genuinely good coffee a good compromise (plus a few minutes free wi if) can be found at Cafe Malongo, 50 Rue St Andre Des Arts in the 6th between Olace St Michel and St Germaine des Pres. Nice walking neighborhood too
