There is accountability in that they will now give him 2-3 more articles to double-down on these rankings before doing it all over again for the final four with even more fanfare. It's about entertainment and attention rather than knowledge. If people are talking about something because its wrong then at least they are talking about it! More wrong == MOAR TALKY. It's basically how Stephan A Smith, Skip Bayless, Mel Kiper Jr., etc not only have jobs but are championed and given their own segments and shows.
|08/24/2017 - 12:53pm||Agreed -- crossing Lake||
Agreed -- crossing Lake Washington for your commute means you will have a really long commute. Each town/area is pretty different, I'd recommend just finding a place near your work to rent at first and seeing which city or area gives you what you want.

Tangential topic: If anyone is curious why Twitter would ever expand beyond 140 characters, this is the perfect example. That letter has a lot of sellable keywords and relevance data baked into it and posting screenshots of your Notes app is not searchable so it can't be used to serve up more relevant ads or follows or other recommendations.
That said. Beat Purdue!
|02/03/2016 - 5:00pm||Wouldn't a caching solution||
Wouldn't a caching solution would be cheaper for the (relatively short) surges in traffic that the site sees? Switching to a full AWS cloud architecture with properly sized instances and auto scaling groups would be fairly expensive*, require more attention to maintain, and a little overkill for the normal traffic patterns and days. A caching layer or CDN may not give you up to millisecond accurate data or posts but it would allow the site to continue to server traffic without breaking the bank
* I say this with zero knowledge of the existing infrastructure, cost, or budget.

The first Umich game is typically the weekend before the NFL starts so we do something in that game. Favorite one from the past was "How many total yards will Denard have?".

I don't have data to back this up but in the MLS case every stadium has different field dimensions. Narrow/short fields favor defense-oriented teams while wider/longer fields are more favorable to possession-oriented teams that can spread out the field.

The playing to the advantage of the rules should never trump playing the game.
I mostly agree with you but aren't the rules by definition part of the game? Playing the game means playing to the advantage of the rules.

It's OK everybody, Delany is just sending in Bielema as a double agent to take down the SEC from the inside!
Or, something like that
|07/13/2012 - 1:35pm||I don't know why this is||
I don't know why this is bugging (and ever so slightly at that) but if you go from #21 to #19 in the rankings, shouldn't your change be -2? I get the relationship between "up" and + but it just feels awkward and unnatural.
Clearly this is super important and resolved immediately.

I'd argue that MSU's cheap shot on Martin's ankle had a larger impact overall than the loss of Odoms, although its a close call.
|11/30/2010 - 6:23pm||This may be my grumpy old man||
This may be my grumpy old man side talking but what value is there in re-posting articles from detnews and freep on mgoblog? Why turn the forums into what amounts to a feed aggregator of content? I'm going out on a limb and saying that most fans that would care are already reading detnews or freep articles and get little to no value out of this apart from adding stupid images and "lolz" comments, which just turns it into clutter and frustration for everyone.
There, I said it. Buried under a bunch of comments on a post that will probably end up removed, but I said it nonetheless.

No, but I did see Gerg rubbing a wolverine stuffed animal in players faces after our fumble recovery. That was kinda strange/awesome.

It might even be worse:
As a result of a coin toss held by the conference office Friday morning, Illinois will occupy the west team bench in the first half and Northwestern will occupy the west team bench in the second half and for all overtime periods.
The teams have to switch which side of the field they stand on? What a joke.
|11/18/2010 - 2:52pm||Actually, we would need Penn||
Actually, we would need Penn St to lose to Indiana this week too since we have the same conference record as them and they have the head to head tiebreaker.
