Thanks so much, Brian. You're a rockstar.
|48 weeks 3 days ago||This is a more tranquil tone||
than I expected from Brian.
|1 year 6 days ago||2nd?||
Which one are we not counting....
|1 year 10 weeks ago||ONIONS!||
Way to go fellas.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Good job,||
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Hey so,||
you probably get this a lot...but, are you, uh...the Proclus?
|2 years 23 weeks ago||...although he won't actually be at the game?*||
|2 years 23 weeks ago||He does have a game, league championship this weekend...||
which is why, I believe, Shallman won't be attending either.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Math is the most common-sense field there is...||
or did you mean "the eye-ball test" instead of "common sense"?
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Coming this fall, Michael Scarn in...||
Fret Level: Midnight.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Mmm, Spartan tears taste like sugar...||
so yummy and sweet.
Also, RVB just swallows up Persa (?) in one of the Evanston highlights.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||So, no one's in doubt to start Fall camp...||
from an injury perspective? Not Poole? Or is that something that gets cleared up on Monday?
|2 years 50 weeks ago||Our 3rd and short defense in that game was...||
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Fuck it! Yes!||
That's your answer. That's your answer for everything! Tatoo it on your forehead!
|3 years 5 weeks ago||No person was defenestrated...||
but their hopes were.
Incidentally, I'll be interested to see what Wilbon says today ;)
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Flamebaited? Come on, these never get old||
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Forgot 2 important ones:||
|3 years 16 weeks ago||*NBA Jam voice says* "He's heating up..."||
|3 years 16 weeks ago||So, so winner...||
|3 years 16 weeks ago||How is that a "jet" play at all? No one is in motion before||
the snap...I thought a jet sweep utilized a man-in-motion who received the ball right after the snap while running full speed. Hence, "jet."
|3 years 16 weeks ago||I get the spirit of it, I'm just saying it's stupid...||
Moving from 20% to 30% confidence is a relative increase of 50% in confidence; one could argue it IS worth quite a bit. Indeed, I think ANY improvement would be beneficial in this case.
Further, instituting a playoff would not be that hard, and you are more (though not perfectly) insulated from these kinds of criticisms: the differences between teams ranked 1-3 are much smaller than the differences between teams ranked 1-6 or 1-8. The last team out has less of an argument that they are legitimate contenders as you increase the number of teams. So why not increase the number of teams?
|3 years 16 weeks ago||You wouldn't want a playoff if it potentially DOUBLES the||
fictional accuracy of choosing NC contenders? Obviously 100% is ideal...but if there is a concrete way to get closer to 100%, you wouldn't do it because it doesn't get you all the way there?
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Estan en la biblioteca?||
Me gustan los commits. MUCHAS ESTRELLAS, POR FAVOR!!
|3 years 17 weeks ago||When is Wright deciding?||
Haven't seen that here....
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Hail to the seniors...||
They were starvin', not anymore!!
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Take it easy on the delivery guy, Brian...||
It's not his fault he can't read!
|3 years 18 weeks ago||"But||
if MGoBlog didn't come around to combine that loss with the narrative of the Declining Carr (which then melded into the narrative of Thwarted Rodriguez Promise) and give it that catchy name, it wouldn't seem like that big of a deal. "
No, it is and was a big deal. It was literally a historical first, you cannot dispute that. That's why sportswriters will never stop talking about it.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Yep, sure came out quickly in the 2nd though, 51 points||
in the half for us.
Duke was amazing from 3pt range though. Even more amazingly, if we make our FT's and shoot a little better from distance (we were 31%), we might have been able to withstand that great shooting performance.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Yeah, but at what cost?||
At what point does individual talent trump chemistry? What are others who wanted to visit going to think if you bend the rules for PB?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Fisher's going to be good, and we have a small hole at OT||
for the immediate future. That one still stings :(
