|2 weeks 5 days ago||Why in the world||
Do you think Ross is such a complete idiot as to continue to support a failing director and coach because they're, like, his pals and because he said (before Shanegate) he would? Are YOU that dim well then probably he isn't either.
|2 weeks 5 days 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.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Really money does NOTHING||
unless you have a crapton more of it than everybody else. We have a lot, but we can't dominate other elite programs with compensation. A big ego would presumably rather choose something to turn around that will not be a stinkbomb for the foreseeable future.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Faculty and staff, too||
Have it it, employees
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Boondoggle?||
I do not think that word means what you think it means. But yeah.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||All sorry asses||
You happy now or you still want to fight with someone on your side
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||Shoulda put my glasses on||
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Well the Tigers....||
|3 weeks 2 days ago||You can still attend games||
Probably sit in the same area, for less money, just stubhubbing
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Niceness.||
It's Utah's secret weapon. Welcome and thanks for the nice words.
|5 weeks 12 hours ago||You're on!||
Good causes all
|5 weeks 17 hours ago||$30 sez Gardner throws no interceptions this weekend||
If I lose I'll give 30 to Keeping Growing Detroit, which provides urban gardening services in the city (and employs at least one huge Wolverines fan).
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Unless he plays football for Michigan||
He is too OT for an in-season thread.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Hey get your Groupons here for Saturday's game||
No kidding I got an "Amazon Local" offer this morning (think Groupon with an Amazon logo slapped on it) for a "special package" for the Miami game
$65 includes ticket hot dog beverage t-shirt and program
which, as we all know, is WAY LESS THAN LOYAL SEASON TICKET HOLDERS PAY.
So, yes, we are at Desperation Defcon 6 or something.
Really, Dave? YOU ARE COUPONING OUR FOOTBALL GAME?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe we give extra points||
For being a good guy,
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Yay got mine||
Bulk mail, no signature though
|10 weeks 3 days ago||5) bring an aunts||
So you don't have to take her to the men's room.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||That's what we thought last year||
When we took Sloane to Akron and made her stay and stay and stay.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||No||
Closed. And Ann Arbor Saline too.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Low expectations = more fun||
The following are my observations based on taking my grandniece, the awesome Sloane, to game starting at about age 3.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Geez I thought you said Joe Biden||
I would really like to see Joe BIden split playing time with Desmond Morgan.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Oh hon||
What was on your plate was way more important. Y'all are the best sports writers out there and we will wait as long as it takes.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||What a fine way to honor your dad||
I am very sorry for your loss and send my best to your family esp your mom.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||I agree||
If you don't have a compelling interest in business for its own sake (as opposed to for the sake of the salary you hope to get), I'm good with taking any other hard-core major, going out into the world of work, coming back later to get an MBA should you feel the need.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Ok I dont think you passed the stats class||
It is not easier to break a curve in a smaller class, it's harder. Just now I'm getting ready to grade a class with only 20 students in it, which means I only have five students who will get a full "excellent"/A.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Ross prereqs||
Hi there and welcome
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Desirable ....not!||
Oh for heaven's sake, if "total applications" is the right indicator of "desirability" than McDonald's is the best restaurant in the universe.
A better measure would be acceptance rate (i.e. Stanford's is about 5.6 ot 5.7 and Harvard's is about 5.9).
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Read the Gilovich article||
Before you say that
|26 weeks 6 days ago||So is the hot hand a defensive phenomenon||
I mean is it driven entirely by defense? Is it possible that defensive reaction is driven by an (incorrect) belief in the hot hand? Could the hot hand in other words both be true (as a defensively driven empirically phenomenon) and not true (as a purely offensive matter)? So all the researchers are right?
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Please describe said flaws||
I'm not being sarcastic. I am very familiar with the initial article and find the endogenous argument compelling. I am not certain that "sabermetricians" typically use models that account for endogeneity, and am happy to be corrected if I'm wrong.
