That's a pretty poor way to define turnover rate. A 3 and out counts the same as a 12 play touchdown drive, while one clearly has more turnover opportunties than the other.

There is no difference in the specific ruling for the case where the justices went 4-4, but it does not set a precedent in case law that others need to follow, so the lower court ruling is upheld, but another court can rule a different way for a similar case. There needs to be a true majority opinion before lower courts have a clear precedent on how to rule on a specific set of circumstances.

From the perspective of knowing how to get the media to work for you, I'd agree, not many other ways.

My understanding is the LOI commits the person to the school. Financial aid commits the school to the person, essentially. From the school's perspective the LOI is key.

Reminds me a little bit of the tiny jesus (Hunwick) tourney run. Everyone feels the pressure to step up with some key pieces out and the focus actually produces a better unit than prior. In the Tiny Jesus case he also happened to be a really good goalie.

Honestly Toys R' Us is in a really tough place, between the rise of all forms of electronic gaming and online retailers. The only thing I would think to buy at Toy R' Us are larger toys and I would probably look at Walmart first.

Agreed, I like Seth's idea, I might take it a step farther and say bowl eligibility could be based on advanced stats, so an Indiana chaos team with too few wins that has a lot of close losses against great teams can have an entertaining chaos matchup in a bowl game.

Right and this year could be one with top tier talent more interested than normal than staying in state (national championships can do that). Top tier recruits may also be slightly less numerous this year in Ohio but I don't follow it that closely.

This thread hit Godwin's Law really fast.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||While true that doesn't||
While true that doesn't really matter for the first one, its a Hail Mary, of course the recievers in the end zone will be well covered. All we can take away from these is O'Korn has an arm whether he's accurate or not is still to be seen.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Yeah I could see him leaving||
Yeah I could see him leaving back to the NFL at some point, but it won't be until he has the program humming in such a way that he can pull one of his former coaches (e.g. Drevno) who has been highly successful as a head coach at another school for several years.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||There have really been zero||
There have really been zero trips. We've allowed 6 trips into the red zone. 5 of those resulted in scores which is a bad percentage, but only App state and Toledo have allowed fewer total scores on drives that get to the red zone, and the advanced stats are pretty clear about our ability to contain explosive plays that skip the red zone entirely.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Correct this is a huge part||
Correct this is a huge part of it. We have 6 RZ opportunities that's the best in the FBS (1 team has 7 and a handful have 8, not adjusted for number of games played). We've allowed 5 scores on those 6 opportunities. Except for App St and Toledo at the top of the metric we've allowed fewer scores where the drive was in the Red Zone at one point than any team in the country (on a gross numbers basis).

MSU's Dline is possibly more talented than ours? Isn't our Dline completely shutting down the run and consistently pressuring the QB essentially without help from other parts of the D?
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Great write up. On the||
Great write up. On the commercial I will say they are targeted more at reminding Alums to donate than recruiting high school students to apply, but regardless cow manure probably isn't cutting it in that regard, regardless of the value of the research.

To be fair, how many students actually know how the wave is supposed to work after the last 3-4 years?
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Even if he was cleared to||
Even if he was cleared to play QB, after two major shoulder injuries it's time to start thinking about where he projects at the next level. No NFL team is going to take a chance on him at QB with that history, but he has the athleticism for other places on a football team so it's better for everyone if he starts to learn another position.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||It's predictive capacity||
It's predictive capacity should only really be impacted by the playcalling meta-game evolution speed. Intuitively I don't think it changes that fast since the NFL relys mostly on the Offense out executing the Defense rather than trying to throw unexpected plays at them.

Got a chemical engineering degree too. I enjoy my working in Pharma, but I think I would have gone back for a PhD sooner (or straight out of school). That said I think I would have been really happy in Computer science as well.

Is there anything shady with how he became his legal guardian? If there is, this is a pretty effed up way to avoid the NCAA's prohibition on professional representation. If it is a shady situation it's a savy move right now since he knows enough to not have Swanigan sign the LOI, but it could get fun down the line with the NBA contract.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||I am too. I live far enough||
I am too. I live far enough away that making it back for a game is tough, but I'll be in the area for Thanksgiving so I'm going to try to snag OSU tickets. I doubt they'll be going for much less than $100 come game time and will likely be going for more. My only reservation was that the seats might be near the top of the bowl, but it doesn't sound like that's the case.

I was just thinking about this. I think SNL still wins over the last 15 years, but it's a huge testament to the show that the only reasonable comparison is to SNL.

I'm not positive, but I assume Ann Coulter has been mocked. Michael Phelps has hosted and been mocked, and other Wolverine swimmers in the Olympics may have been as well.

Can't tell if quadruple post was on purpose or accident, and for the record quadruple posts for Harbaugh praise should not be a thing.
