Seems like a reasonable enough take, but I find sheltering an abuser far more repugnant than lying to the press regardless. That guy just gives me the creeps.

TL;DR? I'd rather not feed that shitpile more traffic.

08/03/2018 - 9:56pm Please do not ever, ever,…

Please do not ever, ever, ever abbreviate Urban Meyer to UM.

08/03/2018 - 9:41pm I feel you. I am disgusted.

I feel you. I am disgusted.

Now I wouldn't say all of our enemies. Rutgerz...wait they hired Schiano.

Notre Dame is mostly spotless except that one kid Purple Face got killed.

I guess there's always Minnesota.

08/02/2018 - 12:51pm I don't buy this argument at…

I don't buy this argument at all. Gene Smith is culpable because he has direct control of, and is accountable for, the culture within his department.

08/01/2018 - 11:43pm Thing is, children were…

Thing is, children were involved. Somewhere in there they talk about her 3 year old clinging to her leg while he goes berserk. Shelley may not have known about that detail at the time though.

07/26/2018 - 11:26pm Wait, I thought they weren't…

Wait, I thought they weren't allowed until we beat MSU and OSU...

I'll see myself out.

07/08/2018 - 3:01pm I sure appreciated the heck…

I sure appreciated the heck out of Brandon Graham. 

04/21/2018 - 11:44am Well

It's hard to look at their team and see question marks, any more. As much as we abuse their weak links the last couple tries, it's lead to heartbreak in the end. Their team is the death star lately, and ours feels like the plucky Skywalker just hoping to land that one hit at a key moment.

04/20/2018 - 11:56am For some reason

that does not make me feel better.

04/20/2018 - 8:59am Concert Tonight!

Going to see Lord Huron in Grand Rapids. Totally stoked!

04/18/2018 - 1:57pm But...

Do we really think a player should be allowed to play again after drinking and driving? How low can the bar be set? Sparty continues to plow the depths.

04/18/2018 - 1:53pm Dave Brandon

was not fired for losing to Rutgers.

04/17/2018 - 12:13pm Main Problem

The biggest problem with eliminating the kickoff is you then get rid of the onside kick.

04/12/2018 - 7:02pm I love her, I miss her, I can't wait to kiss her
So, soon I'll be off to Alberta, I mean Vancouver
Shit, her name is Alberta, she lives in Vancouver
04/10/2018 - 4:05pm 60% of the time...

works every time!

04/10/2018 - 3:57pm They must not

pay attention to the basketball team then.

04/10/2018 - 9:20am Best Flag ever flown in The Confederated States

was all white.

04/09/2018 - 10:00am I'm not racist, but...

I hate to get political but...

Get over yourself. If you hated to get political you wouldn't do it. Let alone post a hot take that's probably going to get ripped down by the mods.

04/08/2018 - 10:43pm Keep in mind

Most players have been at it for several years.

04/08/2018 - 1:49pm That terminology comes straight from Riot Games

They are very heavily promoted matches and the company behind League specifically calls them ESports. It would be downright confusing for the B1G to call it anything else.

04/08/2018 - 1:48pm You got it man

I am pretty blown away by the depth of mechanics, tactics, and strategy involved.

04/08/2018 - 1:46pm The learning curve...

on not double posting is apparently something I am still working on.

04/08/2018 - 1:45pm The learning curve...

is extremely long. At 25 games you would still be learning the basic mechanics. Even at 1000 you would still be learning a lot about strategy and how different champions work with each other. Saying you hated it after 25 games tells us practically nothing. I don't even think you can unlock play against other humans that fast.

04/08/2018 - 12:48am Just installed 3 weeks ago

Enjoying it quite a lot.

04/06/2018 - 12:08pm This

Yeah they made us back off, but allowed them to stay aggressive. And it was a very sudden change, after really just letting the kids play. Not sure why they changed their minds so abruptly.

04/06/2018 - 12:05pm I'll just post this here

It's interesting to look at the Win % chart on FiveThirtyEight. The refs really swung the game when it still mattered. At the point where we peaked, they had 4 fouls on us and we had 2 on them. That felt right. They were much more physical. Then the refs started calling very soft stuff.

The calls felt so uneven with the way we would basically sneeze on the redhead and it was a foul. While they weren't getting away with murder, they were playing very physical and if we got away with what they did, they would have never cracked 70. That drop in the chart to end the half was like a 15 point swing (up 6 to down 9 i believe). I don't know if I agree it wouldn't have changed the outcome had they called it even.

In addition to that run in particular, calling it so tight on just one end of the floor made us back off our defense just enough. Those guys don't need a ton of breathing room. A board here, a three there, and things really snowball.

One more note. Just before things headed south, Brunson (?) got away with a double dribble so blatant they had to announce it on the national broadcast.

Glad you posted this. I thought about doing something similar, but didn't have the heart.

04/02/2018 - 5:40pm I've watched

the last three games in hospitals. Two at UM with my fiancée who is a resident, and one at NW where my dad was getting fixed up. Watching tonight at a buddy's place so I'll be 3/6.

Also, totally expected to open a thread about Jordan Poole. Might want to change the title.

04/02/2018 - 3:12pm I think I made those exact changes to my calculations

There's a 99.89% chance (according to normal distribution) we make between 9 and 40 attempts. I set up a weighted average, and it shows a much more favorable outlook than what i initially had (mostly because I was using the wrong probability to miss). Updating the tables and analysis now.

04/02/2018 - 1:59pm Exactly

I'm not saying statistics owe us one, although karma might if it exists. Derp, thanks for finding where the error was, I was using probability to make in both spots! I'll do some updates, not sure I'd be able to make all those changes by 9PM.

Not sure I follow your penultimate paragraph entirely, need to reread a few more times.

04/02/2018 - 1:22pm Good Catch

Not sure where that number came from. Fixed.

04/02/2018 - 1:18pm Nova shoots 40.1%

Assuming they shoot exactly 20 times, they have a 1.2% chance of making exactly 3.

04/02/2018 - 12:36pm Yeah I was wondering about that

Haven't taken a math class in a while, never took a stats class. I think from a mathematical progression there's no "preference". It's just regression whether it's up or down. But I'm not sure on that.

04/02/2018 - 12:35pm When the tourney started

FiveThirtyEight gave us a 4% chance to win it all. Now it's 36%. Either way, it's higher than 0%. Despite what it felt like while watching them dismantle the Jayhawks.

04/01/2018 - 4:37am /s

whoooooosh

04/01/2018 - 4:36am Really?

Their team name is a term for slavers. You think they would be ashamed of anything else if that doesn't do it?

04/01/2018 - 4:34am And

04/01/2018 - 4:33am Would be sweet

to get his first national championship on #800.

04/01/2018 - 4:31am To achieve great things...

04/01/2018 - 4:18am Don't forget

CJ Baird

04/01/2018 - 4:09am We are undefeated

in games where CJ Baird has any stat this postseason.

03/31/2018 - 11:08pm Better than

a zero percent chance we bring home a national title. With one game to go.

03/31/2018 - 9:18pm As did I

Gotta give!

03/31/2018 - 9:01pm Custer's Last Stand

It was ugly, but Zavier put in some work tonight. That kid was crying walking off the court. I feel for him, but still glad to see it.

03/31/2018 - 10:16am I read that title

And then decided to double post.
