When I was at Michigan we accessed the nascent web using NCSA Mosaic, before Netscape was even a thing. I saw several websites back then that looked and worked better than 2016 mgoblog.
I love the site, so I take it as "charming", but man would it be great if we just had a recent version of Invision Power Board to DISCUSS on.

Yes but technically Peppers has more than 8 billion times the TFLs as Jackson.

Believe it or not, the NCAA has recently amended their bylaws for situations exactly like this one:

I think hating Notre Dame is what establishes a person's decency.

I doubt it. They seemed friendly before the game chatting it up and Harbaugh was talking to many of the UCF players. Most likely just didn't make it into the shot?

He finished them! I was in class with him.

Only 4 more Saturdays without football.

Makes me want to find Al Borges and fire him again.

I'm pretty old.

with a potentially unpopular opinion, but:
I find this incredibly cheesy. It's not quite "we are notre dame", but its a step in that direction.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Old?||
Old is an understatement. This thing is ancient! Its literally days old! OP must have pulled this one out of the Internet Archive.

I didn't see the original title, but I wasn't particularly thrilled to see the current one either, before I saw the show. Maybe this sounds like I'm being a stickler, but next time please just title the thread "Game of Thrones" and leave the commentary for inside the thread. You set my expectations up for seeing this episode that it was going to be the "best episode ever". That isn't something I wanted to know before watching it, and made the episode a bit of a let down whereas if I had gone in blind it wouldn't have been.
|20 weeks 10 hours ago||Yeah||
Yeah, exactly. They intentionally solicit people with symptoms and then check the brain for signs of dementia. Then they say, look almost every brain we check has it!
Regarding the statistical test, you could calculate it that way, but you probably shouldn't. There's no way a distribution of 1s and 0s would meet the assumptions of a t-test. :)

Suicide Mortality Among Retired National Football League Players Who Played 5 or More Seasons Everett J. Lehman, Misty J. Hein and Christine M. Gersic Am J Sports Med published online May 5, 2016 DOI: 10.1177/0363546516645093

I also had to know. So odd.
I traced the image back and found this. They are protestors on a beach in Australia, trying to make a point about climate change prior to the 2014 G20 meeting.
|20 weeks 10 hours ago||Nope||
They can't use any of those methods because suicide is not a continuous variable where each person has a value! They are measuring relative frequencies of occurrence in the two populations.
|20 weeks 10 hours ago||Well||
Well they just didn't compare to the "general population". They compared to sample matched in age, race, and gender. There were 12 NFL suicides compared to 25 in the non-NFL sample. The suicide rate was actually statistically lower in the NFL sample. So this is pretty far from supporting the myth of the football-related suicide.
I think its important that people remain extremely skeptical about the "CTE" story being told by a very small number of scientists who a) have profitted greatly from it and b) have unethical standards for how they tell their story to the press. That nonsense they keep spreading about the number of NFL players in their sample that have CTE is mind-bogglingly misleading and offends me as a scientist. The public has latched onto this story and they've encouraged it. Be wary.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||It's not||
It's not a pilot study. When we talk about a "small" sample size, we are saying "small" relative to what?
I do brain imaging research, and there are many constraints that are not well understood by the public that limit sample sizes. But sample sizes are designed to be a balance between these practical constraints and the needs of the study.
Sample size in a research study has basically two important consequences. The first is statistical power. The smaller the sample, the less likely we are to find an effect of a given size. However, a smaller sample size may be sufficiently powered to find an effect if the effect you are looking for is large. Statistical power in the case of this study was sufficient to find a significant relationship between head acceleration and diffusion imaging, so that isn't a reasonable complaint, unless you are saying there are even more, sublter effects, that could have been identified with a larger sample (which is true).
The other concern is generalizability. If the sample is small, the conclusions may be less generalizable becase they are limited to the particulars of the people studied. So, in this case, if this high school was special or different in some way, the conclusions might not apply to people from other high schools.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||They aren't||
They actually aren't studying the relationship between concussions and football. Nor are they studying the relationship between concussions and brain injury. Players who had concussions were excluded from the study.
They are studying the relationship beween head acceleration during football and white matter health.

Neuroscientist here. I can't tell if the OP is some joke that's going over my head, but if it isn't he really should see a doctor. Strange smells preceding a loss of consciousness sounds a lot like temporal lobe seizure to me.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Yep||
This is especially true due to the impending new post shortage.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||It would||
It would absolutely change everything.
Once the players are paid as employees, you enter a whole new realm of labor law. The NCAA would be anticompetitive to restrict their salaries, for example. So you would have to get it set up like an approved monopoly like the NFL if you don't want the best players just going to the richest schools. That means a players union that has to collectively bargain with the NCAA.
How would those negotiatons change things? It's surely hard to predict but it will change things. If I'm the player's union one of the first things to negotiate away is the 3 year restriction from entering the NFL draft. If they are sucessful in that, well, we've seen what has happened to college basketball...

Let's not rewrite history here. He did not acknowledge that the incident wasn't consensual. He acknowledged that the woman believed it not to be consensual. That's a pretty big difference. What he said was:
"Although I truly believe this encounter between us was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did. After months of reviewing discovery, listening to her attorney, and even her testimony in person, I now understand how she feels that she did not consent to this encounter."

Again, I'm not endorsing the guy in general -- I just don't think the passage of this particular rule had very much at all to do with the strength of the arguments Delany was going to make against it. You have 2/3 of the members who don't think its in their interest for us to do these camps and they have the power to outlaw it.
