If you want to simplify the odds for each event to a coinflip of 50/50... you end up with 50/50.
Saying 12.5% is applying math the wrong way, look up the Gambler's fallacy for a more detailed explanation on why you can't apply probabilities in that way.

I think you have a flawed view of how much a site makes per 1000 pageviews.
If you've visited 10,000 times (assuming you've been reading 4 years, refreshing 6x a day) using a different IP address each time Brian may have made $100. Maybe.

Charging Infantry into machine guns was slightly less dumb than charging light cavalry into a valley killbox ringed on three sides with artillery.

I dont see how any garbage time duty as a 3rd string QB would help with those situations.
|39 weeks 3 days ago||Formula error?||
The safeties either really, really bulked up from last year, or you're subtracting off the wrong numbers.
|48 weeks 5 days ago||But where is Kyle Prater?||
The people want to know
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Is Brady Hoke still selling jerseys in Ohio?||
Inquiring minds would like to know.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||And the extensiveness of the networks, etc||
I'm sure there are very passionate and upper-middle class Northwestern guys out there, but they would probably be few and far between, and not live in many areas where you would need a few bag men to build personal relationships.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Hey that describes me!||
an 85 man squad made up of 4.0 HS GPA kids probably wouldn't be as bad as you would think, but at best you could maybe get a competitive D-II (Not even D-IAA) team.
Most of the people who played HS football and got into Michigan on 100% academic merit presumably also aren't delusional enough to think they would be a competitive D-I athlete.

"I disagree with your general opinion, so please stick to sports!"

AIRBHG was originally known as AMSHG. Then they changed the name and it took off.

|1 year 9 weeks ago||Uh huh||
and how many people are going to watch what essentially will be sub-walk on quality players play each other.

Read the report. Please, do it and then come back. There's a world of difference between jokingly telling your friend that you find her sister attractive and what the Wells report states was said about Martin's sister.
But hey, if you're cool with people telling you that they would find your sister and rape her, more power to you.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||I don't understand this sentiment||
They are just trying to do what is best for them. None of their demands seem unreasonable. It's not like anyone is asking for millions of dollars as a 19 year old sophomore.
Compared to the monolithic monopoly like the NCAA and the fact that admin staff, bowl reps, networks, and coaches are making millions off of them, why on earth are you blaming the athletes. You know, (hopefully) nobody forces people in the third world to work in sweatshops either, BUT IT'S THE ONLY THING THEY CAN REASONABLY DO.
250ish guys get drafted into the NFL every year, most of them won't end up playing for more than a couple of season. That's 10 full signing classes of kids a year.
What happens to the other 104 classes of D-1FBS kids? At best a firm handshake and thanks for all the fish?
|1 year 12 weeks ago||So he's an employee then||
What with the contract and all. So they can unionize if they want to.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||NW is the only private B1G school||
NW is the logical first step, as public schools have more protections than private schools.

|1 year 23 weeks ago||It can be defensible||
If you ran it once or twice and the opposing team has never seen it before.
The problem is that once the defense figures it out it will be an extremely easy key, which you will have to have a counter for. Michigan has crappy counters off of crappy plays.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Which is fine||
If you can block and get 3 yards. At this point most people would be overjoyed if this could happen.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||All plays will work if players executed properly||
If you get a team where all 11 offensive guys complete their assignments 100% of the time, every drive will end in a TD.
If you're looking at all of this in a vacuum, I get how each opinion seems valid.
However, based on other ancillary signs (Dinosaur Close NFL Punt, Inability to perform 2 Minute Drill in "NASCAR", terrible delay of game/TO usage, "Execution" excuse ever since MSU 2011) I am much more aligned in Brian's point of view.
At a certain point, you realize that the coaches are just sticking round pegs into square holes, and when they don't fit, they proceed to bring out a hammer and keep smashing away. Afterwards, they fault the pegs for not being square enough.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||My favorite part of the points debate||
Was when people complained it cost a point to neg a post. I'm not sure why, and am still unsure why people were so afraid of giving up a Mgopoint.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I used to do that||
Then I noticed that people who's opinions i respected were posting less and less. The signal to noise ratio started going downhill quickly. Now I don't visit the Mgoboard unless I'm looking for own-fanbase schadenfreude.
The board doesn't know if it wants to be a place for srs discussion, or the RCMB. This in-between stage isn't working.
Also super annoying: posting links that were 3 days old, asking questions about where to watch Michigan football because you were at a family reunion/wedding/secret cabal meeting in New Location when you could simply google within the blog, and the dog thing. Never forget.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Ah but Seth||
Aren't you missing out on the WW1 criticism that the US entered the war and disregarded the lessons learned the previous 2.5 years and still used outdated tactics, leading to much higher casualty rates for the AEF than the French or British at that point?
|1 year 30 weeks ago||??||
That's still on Borges. If every single double tight run was going for 15 yards, teams will start walking down safeties and LBs to stack the box. You have to be prepared for that eventuality if everything is going right, and be prepared to shift somewhat if things are going wrong.
If Michigan literally does not have any option but to run with 2TE formations on first and 20 because that's all they've practiced, that entirely falls on Borges.
As it is, the main problem is the same one Brian has touched on time and again, when the offense huddles for so long and doesn't have time to check into a counter play, they eat whatever RPS- Borges had on the original call. If they have time to check into a less flawed play Borges wouldn't probably be getting the criticism of running into stacked boxes.

/looks at picture
/has a sad
/calf socks with shorts. :((((((
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I dunno||
I remember multiple shorts all year round guys. One of them was a good friend, but he never seemed to run into other shorts all year round guys.
I'm convinced that somehow there were two completely seperate universes of shorts guys and I was the only person who bridged that gap.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Anecdotal evidence||
While it's probably true that certain players are fumble prone, and it is possible that some guys who work on trying to get fumbles are slightly better, its unlikely that that group of players really has a unique skillset.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||I don't like to think it's been that long||
The only thing I remember from that timeframe was that I would check the mgoboard at 3 AM during some all nighters trying to finish up a project.
/terrible old memories.
