glad to know recruiting journalism is mostly your ability to tweet unsolicited at minors.

While this is a great trade for the Tigers, it makes the Doug Fister trade look even worse in retrospect.

I hate to rip a sponsor, but as a habitual daily fantasy player, this isn't really a merger. It is essentially Draftstreet dying, with some of the DS staff going on to work for DKs.
If any daily fantasy player wanted to be playing on DK, they would have done so already. It isn't "one great realm of... fantasy". It is essentially a loss of all of DS features, and a loss of choice for the consumer. There is even some questions about whether the merger will pass (or should have passed) antitrust review.
Basically, this "merger" means:
-loss of DS game types not offered by DKs, such as pick ems and H2Hs.
-loss of the DS pricing algorhythm, which was considered to be one of the best (at least for baseball)
-loss of DS's community chat (none offed by DKs)
-players forced to use the crappy DK interface
-players forced to play under rules where not all positions lock at the start of the first game, meaning you can't just spend a few minutes setting up but have to constantly check for news before every game start time.
In other words, a sad day for daily fantasy sports.

Frankly, I'm neither sure that the testimony of a friend of the accused who saw them get out of a taxi is really relevent nor that Duke handled themselves correctly.

Tid bits from the local press:
- The standard of guilt used in this case was "more likely than not".
- The panel found the student was too drunk to give consent
- The alleged victim is a freshmen

Is there a point to this thread besides your passive aggressiveness?
EDIT: that came off mean-spirited, so let me add this: it is great that you have taken an interest in predictive models. They are fun to examine and even more fun to build. I'd suggest that rather than posting random threads where you multiply two numbers and post a list, or other threads which seem to say "HAHA Kenpom sucks" (although not in those words) that you take the time to read about the various models and how they work.
In your previous thread it looked to me that people were more attacking your concept than you. Take it and learn.
SECOND EDIT: Screw it, I’ll enjoy Bolivia.
This series of threads represents pretty much everything wrong with the internet. Anyone can spew whatever they want, and the result is society fails and people like AJ Mass are employed journalists. Sure, here it is just sports, but the same stuff has terrible outcomes on science (won’t get into it cause of the no politics stuff). Just because you can do basic math doesn’t mean it has any value whatsoever.
Kenpom has spent years trying to perfect a predictive model that most of us wouldn’t be able to understand. He has essentially dedicated his life to the issue. But hey guys, look at this, I can take his values and then multiply by another number and get a different ranking! Oh wait, you don’t like this thread! Delete it so I can make another one where I give an N of 1 with absolutely no context.
Please just stop for a second and try to learn what others have done before presenting your latest “findings”.

Do you really think that something like Kenpom would be so popular if it didn't already account for strength of schedule?
Do you not realize that AdjO and AdjD already do this correction?
Might as well just multiply each team's Kenpom by their longitude. It would be just as accurate as what you did.

my apologies, the "always" I recalled was indeed not about the follows but about asking them if they want to talk about recruiting afterwards.

While perhaps an honest mistake, he also tweeted Jack Beneventi to follow back each of the last two days after saying he always does it just once.
Then of course perhaps it wasn't an honest mistake, as he said Beneventi was the only one not to immediately reply.

In my opinion, the twitter account in question is quite embarassing. It is Brian's blog and he can do what he wants, but I'm very reluctent to continue supporting a blog (through store purchases and page hits) with such practices.

"I definitely have not talked with the parent or the coach of every recruit, but to me that's only necessary if the parents or coaches deem it to be."
How are you supposed to know what the parents/coaches of a recruit deem to be necessary if you never talk to them?
