If Wisconsin wins:

If the committee does indeed value head to head records over conference championships, I'd say root for Wisconsin to win.

Edit: I mean to say that the ball, Barrett's hand, and Barron's camera are all on the same vertical plane. The first blue line parallel to the intersection between this vertical plane and the field. The second blue line *is* the intersection between this plane and the field.
Lewis' feet are only useful for timestamping Barron's photo.

What are the assumptions that are problematic?
The maginification of the pixelated view is to show the light spot that I think is the white stripe on the ball. If you only look at the pixelated shot, this won't make any sense at all! How on earth can one deermine that a couple of random pixels is that stripe?
But if you cycle through the frames from the GIF again and again, back and forth, you will notice that the light spot appears once Barret has twisted his body after contact with his tight end end, It appears, and it moves independent of his body and is at the spot where I would expect the ball to see.
Yes, there are a lot of obstructions, but there is just enough information to do some analysis
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I actually saw the picture||
I actually saw the picture before I typed my OP. I tried to look for clues to timestamp the instant it was taken but it is too zoomed in. I tried looking at the angles of the other players' legs and stuff. I can't conclusively say that that the picture was taken at the moment of forward progress and so it becomes meaningless in that regard. It doesn't prove that at another instant, he wasn't closer to the first down.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||To clarify, I am not saying||
To clarify, I am not saying that the ball is directly above the hand. I am not saying that when you look at it top down, the ball would be covering the hand. I mean that from the viewing angle of Barron's photo, the ball is 'above the hand, and so you can use the hand as a reference to place the ball. That is what the blue line is for. I totally get that the ball is behind the hand from a field position perspective.

Because such images in isolation provide no basis for the 'definitive' conclusions that many claim. It is because of the uncontextualized, unscientific, 'analysis' like this that I have done what I have done.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Sensitivity to Error||
The blue line was the most challenging to place.
From the Barron photo, the boundary side of 18-yard hash and the field side of the 16-yard hash almost align with each other. The actual gap between the two was estimated to be 1/8 the length of the 17-yard hash. I did what I could to preserve these observations when I drew the blue line. However, the overall result is not very sensitive to inaccuracies in the blue line. It just needs to be in the ballpark in terms of angle. At the most, it would affect the overall result by 1 pixel (0.5 inches).
The overall result is more sensitive to the green line, You are correct, I made it vertical on the assumption that there were no roll variations in the camera which could throw off the result by a couple of pixels (1 inch).
The result is also sensitive to how I drew the pink line, and that introduces an error margin of a pixel (0.5 inches).

It is really difficult to make a blanket generalization on soccer. Since there are soo many teams and soo many competitions
At the world cup the gulf between the best an worst teams are huge. The large variance between the teams makes it less likely for any inherent randomness to maniest itself in te results. You could even apply this principle to the champions league.
Compare this to the English premier league, where winning half your games in a 38 game season pretty much guarantees you a champions league berth (top 4 out of 20), and winning 60% of your games is outright championship form. The variance between teams here is small, so inherent randomness has a larger effect on the result of any single game.

As for alumni support, there's been a good amount, believe me. For example, one of our electrical engineers came out of solar retirement, took a couple weeks vacation from his day job just to fill a crucial spot on the team when one of the current students fell sick and couldn't go to Australia. But we can/should only do so much. If alumni do everything, nobody learns anything.

Hello, so you probably know that I spent 3 days in Darwin. I hung out with the team a lot but I also spent a good amount of time with Stanford and checking out their car. Okay, they do have better cells, but teams across the atlantic were able to get them just fine. Stanford custom made their their own drivetrain, which they claim is better than the CSIRO that Michigan runs, which IMHO is really cool.
Overall I think their car is well put together, their team has a good blend of talent and experience. They put just as many test miles on their car as we did. I personally think it's a nicer looking car than generation having seen both cars up close. They have a different design philosphy from us, but I think they executed theirs better.
I think give them the same cells, Generation might have a better shot, but I think Stanford will have the edge. Also They will always have the best cells in the race. That's just the way it always has been since the rule change to full silicon. I had no problems accepting that fact when Quantum was designed. I knew we had to make up the gap in aero and weight and by golly we did.
In my book, if Stanford beats us in WSC 2013 then they are the best team in America. Having history on your side is nice, but the bottom line is you're only as good as your last race, man. My heart goes out to the men and women in Yellow, but I'm gonna give credit where credit is due.

I contrast this with the attitude that Stanford had when they showed up to WSC last year. They made some design decisions which ended up costing them a lot of time and race position, but they showed up to win. They had the mentality that they were out to beat us and not just roll over and die. They are out to learn from their mistakes and make an assault for 2013.
