05/15/2018 - 10:10pm Quite a few people have died

Quite a few people have died of carbon monoxide poisoning because, due to having a button to start/stop the car rather than a key, they accidentally left their car on in their garage.

03/27/2018 - 10:47am What kind of a fucking moron

What kind of a fucking moron would trade a Final Four for a potential upgrade at quarterback. That would be like trading in $1000 for a 10% chance to win $1000.

02/04/2017 - 2:44pm It doesn't really matter if

It doesn't really matter if statistical significance is established if the correlation is that weak.

For example, if the average number of career starts for 4* recruits is 30 and for 5* recruits it is 31, who cares, even if p<0.0001.

02/04/2017 - 1:38pm They mentioned Virginia Tech,

They mentioned Virginia Tech, but they didn't mention the Virginia Tech research, which pre-dates all the other research mentioned in the article.

02/04/2017 - 12:54pm I don't think its ever "OK"

I don't think its ever "OK" when the R2 is that low.  That means that the variance in the dependent variable (starts) cannot be explained by independent variable (recruiting rankings).  i.e.  This is no relationship.  0.05 is totally abysmal and can be interpreted as "there is no meaningful relationship"

 

Another problem with this analysis is that because you can't go lower than 0 starts, the distribution of the data is skewed and not normal.  It would probably be best to remove anyone who never started a single game from the analyis because there a re a lot of people in there that never saw the field for personal reasons and it would make the data nicer.

02/03/2017 - 11:32am Surprised they didn't mention

Surprised they didn't mention the Virginia Tech research, which has been using this methodology for at least 15 years.

Freebird pale ale: Incredible!

Hinerland Timberland: Complete shit. Lots of diacetyl.

11/20/2016 - 9:38pm How was Charlie Strong like

How was Charlie Strong like Hoke at all? Hoke had a losing record in 9 seasons as a head coach in the MAC and MWC after being a position coach.  Strong was a winner at Louiville after being a NC DC at Florida. They were nothing alike.

09/24/2016 - 2:35pm Why do people call Wisconsin

Why do people call Wisconsin "Wisky?" Its not a thing.  Similar to how Virginia Tech hates being called "Vah Tech"

 

08/30/2016 - 4:10pm No one is criticising their

No one is criticising their right to criticize Kaepernick.  They're criticizing their view that any form of protest that doesn't involve 100% obediance to American symbols and rituals is "petulant", "misguided", "selfish", and/or "disgraces the military."

08/30/2016 - 3:56pm Good post.As response to

Good post.

As a response to people protesting injustice in America by abstaining from particiption in the national anthem, some people respond "WHY DO YOU HATE THE TROOPS."  Thats a form of fascism.

If you don't believe in American values, then why did you sign up for the military?

My wife and I met Dhani at a bar in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl at the end of Hoke's first season.  He flirted a lot with my wife.  It was awesome.

When is Snyder going to be charged?

07/22/2016 - 12:27am Exactly.  The NBA has

Exactly.  The NBA has absolutely no power over the Chinese government, yet it does carry some political power over here.

07/22/2016 - 12:25am Maybe its both to increase

Maybe its both to increase their number of fans AND its a moral stand.  Why can't it be both?

07/22/2016 - 12:24am I wonder if your grandfather

I wonder if your grandfather said the same thing about those blacks who were also bullying the poor old white people in the south who just wanted to have their segregation.

Sorry man, but you're wrong.

You basically calling him intolerant because he won't tolerate your intolerance.

07/22/2016 - 12:18am The NBA cannot affect

The NBA cannot affect political change in China.  It can, however, do it here. I think the NBA is giving the American people what they want.  Its really not OK to discriminate against LGBT anymore.  People are saying this is purely a publicity stunt and has nothing to do with morals.  Why can't it be both?

07/22/2016 - 12:13am Bathrooms have always been

Bathrooms have always been based on gender and gender norms, not biological sex.  Three were mens and womens bathrooms way before we even discovered chromosomes.

07/22/2016 - 12:08am Have you ever stopped for a

Have you ever stopped for a second to think that maybe the NBA feels that it can actually make a difference in America by moving the game from Charlotte, but a similar stance toward China wouldn accomplish absolutely nothing politically?

Besides, if you ban games in countries that have committed human rights violations, you would have to ban all games in America too.

You are quite clearly not a scientist.

07/15/2016 - 4:44pm I think the the leather armed

I think the the leather armed male jacket is recognizable mainly because male sports are more celebrated.  You don't fix that problem by giving women the same jacket - you fix it by convincing people that women's sports are just as important and fun to watch as men's sports.  When that happens, the women's jacket will become just as valuable, even though it is different.

07/15/2016 - 4:42pm Who said anything about

Who said anything about separate? I said "different", not "separate".

07/15/2016 - 11:12am Probably not. I think they

Probably not. I think they should have the choice.  I just don't see this as a gender rights issue, if the $ value is the same. Equality doesn't mean sameness.

07/15/2016 - 10:28am Should I be considered a

Should I be considered a bigot if I think its OK that men and women get different clothing, as long as the $ value of the jacket is comparable? Because the old jackets are actually pretty nice looking and definitly more feminine. 

04/27/2016 - 11:39pm I'm not against cops.  I'm

I'm not against cops.  I'm against cops who execute people without a trial.

04/27/2016 - 12:40pm Not at all.  Its a simple

Not at all.  Its a simple calculation.  1 human life > 1000s of car seats.

04/27/2016 - 9:40am This is a great story but it

This is a great story but it would take 1000s of good deeds like this to even come close to erasing the stain of a police sidewalk execution.

04/25/2016 - 2:59pm Its a scandal that it has

Its a scandal that it has been allowed to gone on as long as it has.

Take off your maize and blue glasses.  He got too physical with a kid.  Should have known better.

01/24/2016 - 11:29pm EMU isn't it the same ball

EMU isn't in the same ball park as UM for education. UM has a top education program, EMU is s mediocre teacher factory. There really is nothing EMU can compete with UM in.

12/10/2015 - 11:31am I'm not talking about this

I'm not talking about this world, I'm talking about the whole of reality. I'm Christian too (not the Kirk Cameron type though), but if you think that Kirk Cameron movie is anything other than the worst kind of didatic crap, you don't live in reality! I can't imagine how anyone could sit through that whole sticking piece of dogshit and not either fall asleep or puke.

You've outed yourself as someone who doesn't live in reality!

Some of you people are such little bitches. I feel like I go on this site way too much, and I never notice it going down that often and, when it does, I attend to one of the million other things in my life. If you donated money, its because this site has awesome content, not so that Brian will hire a team of engineers to work around the clock making sure you dont miss a few hours of posting on the board. Also, its a donation - Brian owes you nothing. Be happy that he had the balls to quit his 9-5 and start a blog providing the best Michigan sports content in the universe.
Get a life.

I wonder how many times people contributed to a post with "This will end well."  I bet a lot!

He is an unpaid amateur though.

10/15/2015 - 9:23am One thing I never understood

One thing I never understood is how you can succeed at such a demanding job AND binge drink during the weekdays. I could never do my fairly normal job if I always had a hangover.
