I've been here almost 6 years, and I actually love the weather - never too hot (except for the past week), never too cold. It's just that Husky stadium is built in a way that the winds swirl with the rain and make some games worthy of a fandom badge of endurance. Diehard Husky buddies of mine have decided to leave at halftime due to shitty conditions in the past. But when its nice out - holy shit that view of the lake, with the Husky Armada out there is pretty special. Fun fact - if you arrive via boat, you can head back to your vessel at halftime and fortify yourself with liquid courage.

As a current Seattle resident, and masters student at UW, the announcement of the home and home was cause for celebration, even if I do have to wait over half a decade. While Husky Stadium is loud as fuck and has perhaps the best view in college football, its nowhere as awe-inspiring as walking into Michigan stadium for a big game. I'm dying to show off the Big House to friends I've made locally once 2021 rolls around.
One reason why we enjoy the UW series is that they're basically us, with the M flipped and slightly darker shades of maize and blue (gold and purple), and not quite as much tradition. It's a large research university in a liberal city that prides itself on tradition. They even have the same dynamic with their local rivals. Wazzou is their Sparty - they even have a term called 'Cougin It' which correlates directly to 'Sparty No!' And then Oregon is their Ohio - down to the big O, generally moronic fans, lower academic standards, etc. Its frankly uncanny.

Sorry I don't know how to stop talking, but I had another revelation:
Schools with scholarship athletics programs don't do anywhere as well on those rankings, at least compared to systems like USNWR, Forbes, or THE. Scholarship athletes (unsurprisingly) bring the average down, not because they are dumber, but rather because they don't NEED to have test scores that are as high. As long as the students meet the school's min requirement, they're good.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||honestly, i think SAT/ACT||
honestly, i think SAT/ACT scores do what they are supposed to do - they quanitfy a students aptitude at solving a particular set of tasks in some amount of time. no its not a perfect system and there are always exceptions, but on average and with a large enough sample size, the SAT score system does model what we hold to be 'book-smart' in our current society and culture. 'smarter' kids do better, either because they have practice, or they have natural aptitude. those who have both generally do the best.
however, given the high potential for variance in score-'smartness' correlation on an individual basis, its better to view SAT scores from a population standpoint, which is what i think OPs ranking has done. i especially like that ranking takes the middle two quartiles (25% - 75%), which would seem to represent the "average" student best.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||okay im not sure what your||
okay im not sure what your question is exactly. i'll try and answer the concrete ones you've asked.
is osu an top public school?
i would say it's in the second tier of public schools. it is considered a public ivy. its not michigan or berkeley or uva or ucla, but its not a bad school, especially if you factor in research.
are military academies in less demand during military uncertainty?
i have no clue.
are SAT scores inflated by location and an investement in education?
i'm not sure what you're asking. i think standardized test scores are normalized across the entire test-taking population, so any sort of location-based inflation wouldn't make sense. i mean a really well-funded and well-run school district would have higher test scores than a national average, but thats just common sense.
you asked for my theory - i'm not sure i really have a theory. if there was one thing i learned during my time serving on admissions is that it is not an exact science by any measure. every case, every application, every reading was unique. you learn much more about the student from reading their essays, recommendations, and extra-curriculars than you do from their test scores and grades. yes, those grades and scores are important, but when you're dealing with the top schools, everybody has em. the real differentiators are the other things. and its frankly better to have slightly lower test scores, while having taken advanced courses, done research, and load up on extracurriculars.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||though having worked on an||
though having worked on an admissions committee at a top "tech" school, we never, ever, took fliers on kids with high test scores. its way too competitive for that. the test score is a min bar. its a sieve for filtering out the kids below a certain threshold. think of a high test score as a very fine glass of wine. will that glass of wine help a diner to enjoy the meal? sure, but only if it's paired with great food.
i knew kids back in ann arbor who got 1600s on their SATs. their ceiling schools were purdue and state because they fucked everything else up. its like drinking a glass of Château Latour with flaming hot cheetos. the wine might be amazing, but the meal as a whole is god awful.
that being said, just because a kid had a low score, we wouldn't instantly disqualify him/her. we'd look at the entire body of work, and look for something special about the kids, a piece of novel research, a cool project, some sort of service or volunteering work, etc that would set them apart, or even possibly explain a low test score.

And that's why Air Force is #4? And why Army, Navy and Coast Guard are #16-18 and all behind Tech juggernaut New College of Florida?
sample size, sure. fewer students means fewer outliers (all of which are at the bottom, thus dragging scores down). but the tech vs service argument is invalid. you gotta be freakin smart to get into the military academies AND have everything else.

I was playing football with my buddies at a park near Platt Road. Our plan was to play some ball and then watch some ball. After spending most of the afternoon making those cats look like fools, at the end of the morning, I caught my finger in a kids jersey while making a tackle, and broke the crap out of it. Of course I kept playing a couple snaps, cuz yay for being 19 and playing football. But eventually I realized that I needed to go to a hospital. 2 hrs later, and I got no clue whats going on gamewise. A resident spent 20 excruciating minutes setting my finger properly for the cast and of course I can't look it up online because I didn't have a smartphone yet. I leave St. Joes with a cast on my hand and arm, and turn the radio on in the car (dad was driving). Its 21-7. WHAT??? Then Manningham scores again. WHAAAAAAAT? I ended up at my buddy's house, we watched the game, and chilled and shit. I ended up getting nacho cheese sauce on my new cast, cuz brotha needs nachos son.

Can you say that you'd be able to handle the pressure of sleazy fucks trying to scam you and your family on a weekly basis? Now imagine yourself at 19 trying to do that shit (if you're a teenager reading this, shut up and listen to your elders). The vast majority of 19-year olds aren't really adults, but rather just children who can legally smoke, buy porn, get tatted up, and rent carpet shampooers.
Case in point - my avatar photo was taken when I was 19. I no longer wear beer hats and drink from red cups. My loss? Perhaps. But its pretty nice to be able to afford and appreciate a real hat, and scotch from glasses instead.

I mean if people don't like his style, that's one thing. But he didn't really break any rules, didn't make anything up. He just spoke his mind. Respect the man for at least having the balls to do that instead of hiding behind cliches. Don't denigrate him for being different, outspoken, bold, honest, or black. Most of the criticism and vitriol being flung at Sherman is rooted in these reason's I've just stated - not for not being "sportsmanlike".

If you could've done what Sherman did in that exactly situation, I'd be impressed if you managed to just avoid cussing on national TV. For the record, Sherman didn't break any FCC rules - was just excited, amped, and happy to have exacted to some revenge.
Don't hate the man for saying some real shit for once.

The sack rate was bad in 2011 because Price had a bad habit of holding on to the ball too long.

Don't forget that 130 mil in Texas is not the same as 130 mil in Michigan, due to the lack of a state income tax in Texas. That couple percent turns into some serious dough.

So as someone who has been a part of the 12th man in Seattle, the fans are not great people. Sure they're loud as fuck (seriously), but they're huge d-bags. They fight (as in unprovoked fisticuffs) for no reason other than wearing the wrong color. Seriously, I saw a fight go down during the second half of an PRESEASON game when the Hawks were up 30. Who fights in those situations? Honestly, they're like Ohio fans.
Does it look good and sound good? Sure. But do you really want the Michigan stadium crowd to get the same reputation as an Ohio type crowd, personality and hospitality-wise? Do you want people to come to Ann Arbor, watch a game, fear for their lives, and then leave, thinking all the while that they are better off for being able to leave the anus of the universe?
Me neither. Let's not sell our souls for some noise.

|1 year 39 weeks ago||This.||
I think most of us don't pay much more attention because we're not insecure about our lives.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Exactly!||
I grew up in Ann Arbor, Dad got a couple degrees from the university, and I spent most of my free time doing activities somehow related to the university (summer camps, honor bands, volunteering at Mott, etc). I followed football religiously (I would seriously genuflect every time my school bus drove by Michigan Stadium).
When college time came around, I could either go to Michigan or to Caltech (up there with MIT as the top 2 engineering schools in the world). I decided to go to the school in Pasadena with no football team, a D-3 basketball that won their first game in 200+ tries when I was there, no snow, and an average of 1 Nobel Prize winner in each 4-year block of students.
All of my friends in college continued rooting for their hometown teams - my best friends were an Ohio fan, a Texas fan, Mizzou fan, and Florida fan.
Really, the MSU people are just jealous that they can't get the same state-wide and nation-wide appeal that Michigan does. So they do shit like Walmarting to pull Michigan fans down, because sometimes the only way to feel good about onself is to make other people look bad. Doesn't mean there aren't Walmart-caliber people in our fanbase, but how people root is their own decision. As long as you have a team and you stick with it, fuck everyone else.

We all observe in different ways. Some people get all riled up and huffy. They're called Sparty fans.

Well, if your execution hinders the message actually getting through, you might want to re-think the execution.
For example, imagine Al Borges addressing his gameplan...
"Lol sorry guys, had to do it quick. Sorry if it doesn't meet your standards. I'm sure there's all type of mis-matched plays if you look close enough... but none of that is the point. Just go out there and win! Even if my gameplan is unreadable, non-sensical, and utterly devoid of any actual information."
Basically, nobody cares about your message if you can't deliver it effectively.
