away from the main point I'm trying to make, so... *drops mike*)

*It's short for "microphone", so it's actually spelled "mic", not "mike".

In the NFL it's a little different, because you have to be good enough to play OLine size/technique wise to get drafted, etc.

We just don't have enough guys physically the right size to play OT, given that there's no guarantee that they'll "get it" mentally/technically.

This is seriously awesome. I keep meaning to refresh my data science skills, and this is going to give me the impetus to do it.

I'm impressed with his ability to control the flow of time to slow down his dunks and make them look cooler.

we eat the book

So do I send it back for you guys to eat it, or will you come to my apartment and consume it there for my viewing pleasure?

08/03/2018 - 2:24pm Oooh

Oooh

Edit: Ahh

I don't know that outright excitement at the prospect that more incredibly shitty things happened is the proper attitude to take.

Bartons Simmons' voice is irritating to me, but he's one of the best scouting guys out there and likes Michigan so I choose to take his word as gospel.

INJECT THIS FOOTBALL RELATED CONTENT DIRECTLY INTO MY VEINS

I mean I'm still going to vote for him to lose his job, because he's a piece of shit and doesn't deserve to be employed.

07/16/2018 - 10:46am The smaller schools with…

The smaller schools with less athletic appeal would never get big time recruits.

 

They never do anyway. Name me the last 5 star that went to Toledo. Or EMU. Or hell, Vanderbilt. You can't. It's literally never happened. You're setting up a strawman that doesn't exist.

Happy's was replaced with a Craft Breww City (no idea why they spell Brew like that but I digress).

Unfortunately, it's really hard for anything at that spot to do well, since it's kind of in an awkward position. It's a size that almost demands a sit down restaurant, but there's really no parking nearby (compared to downtown or South U) or any other sit downs in that area.

I have long held the opinion that Quickie Burger was bad, and always tried to steer my drunk friends towards BTB and Spots. Hopefully whatever replaces it will be better.

Bang me! Bang me!

"Voluminous" is the word. You're missing a syllable. 

07/09/2018 - 1:30pm France vs. England

France vs. England

0-0 through '90

1-1 through 120'. France gets a tying goal in the 118'.

France wins on PKs 3-0.

Adding on:

Pros:

  • Food is fantastic.
  • Infinite neighborhoods with their own unique bar scenes, etc.
  • Great for yuppie trash like yours truly
  • Cubs fans share hatred of the White Sox

Cons:

  • Walking to the Purple Line in -3 degree weather or 90 degree weather gets old fast.
  • entire swaths of it are places you wouldn't even be willing to drive your car through
  • Blackhawks fans (although a lot better this year since they sucked)

I'd like to know what makes a school uppity,

 

I would definitely describe Michigan as uppity, especially in regards to Michigan State. We think they have an inferiority complex, they think we're self righteous, uppity pricks. There's truth to both sides.

06/29/2018 - 11:54am Let's move on. A kid liked…

Let's move on. A kid liked another school better. It happens. 

06/29/2018 - 11:53am Yeah, that was pretty shitty.

Yeah, that was pretty shitty.

Colin Castleton has absurdly long arms. Holy shit.

06/27/2018 - 1:49pm This has been an absolutely…

This has been an absolutely wild World Cup. Lots of drama in the first couple groups, but things eventually held chalk (Spain, Portugal, Croatia, and Argentina all ended up advancing). All worth it for this upset though, holy shit.

Random Number Generator.

Everything tied together super nicely, right up until that last scene. Now I have so many questions.

06/22/2018 - 11:57am That was good shit. Fuck…

That was good shit. Fuck Cowherd.

VAR is the GOAT. I love its application, specifically how fast it's implemented. We should be able to make decisions that quickly in American football as well.

06/20/2018 - 10:05am I'm pretty sure MGoPoints…

I'm pretty sure MGoPoints have been frozen indefinitely due to problems with the new site.

06/20/2018 - 10:02am Damn, Morocco controlled…

Damn, Morocco controlled possession pretty well. You can make the case that they've outplayed both of their first two opponents, but are 0-2. C'est la vie.

06/19/2018 - 10:50am What a dumb play by Sanchez…

What a dumb play by Sanchez. Clear red and almost certainly cost his team the game. Columbia played Japan pretty even 10 v 11, you have to think they pull out at least a draw 11 v 11.

06/19/2018 - 8:27am There are 41 territories we…

There are 41 territories we can either attack or defend today. As such, the expected value of territories with a very unusual result (e.g. RNG >.9) would be a little over 4.

We got RNG fucked in UMass, but made up for it by winning almost every territory that we were even slightly favored in.

06/18/2018 - 9:39am They didn't. Any territories…

They didn't. Any territories we owned that GT got were bordered by OSU/Wisconsin. Sometimes it's better to throw multiple stars from the alliance on them to make sure it doesn't fall into enemy hands.

06/18/2018 - 9:22am Oh shit, he doesn't get the…

Oh shit, he doesn't get the ball at all. Definitely a penalty. Good call.

STOP THROWING YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR AND GO PLAY THE BALL

I'm excited to see how Belgium and England look today. Got the games streaming on half of my 3rd monitor. Who needs to do work anyway?

06/17/2018 - 12:08am As far as Khaleke Hudson, he…

As far as Khaleke Hudson, he was the #1 player in PA according to scout.com, so let’s stop pretending like he was like every other composite 3 star. Thanks.

He was 10th in the state on the composite, but sure, let's twist things around to prove a point.

06/16/2018 - 11:28am I woke up at 5:45 AM on a…

I woke up at 5:45 AM on a weekend, what the fuck is wrong with me.

Thoughts:

  • Same old France
  • PUT TIM CAHILL IN
  • Lol "Socceroos"
  • Pogba's goal was top shelf where mama keeps the cookies
  • Argentina's backline and goalkeeping are going to lose them a game before this is all said and done
  • Love me some vikings
06/14/2018 - 12:05pm Vive le France!

06/14/2018 - 9:29am You're attacking the…

You're attacking the territory Michigan, which is currently owned by Wisconsin.

To clarify, "Day 44" will get you last night's individuals. Previous days will get you previous days' individuals.

06/13/2018 - 12:38pm On the site, if you click on…

On the site, if you click on a territory, and click "Day 44" you can see everyone who selected to attack/defend the territory. From there, it's simple math based on how the stars are weighted.

Bad luck in Pitt last night, but was evened out by winning most of our other battles. Onward to glory!

We are almost to 1,000 users on the michigan cfb risk site! Far and away our best night ever. If you're on the cusp of joining, please do so in the next couple minutes to help us make history!

It turns out Seth just forgot to click the "allow comments" link. So no conspiracy.

06/11/2018 - 1:10am Fuck yeah. I'll take all the…

Fuck yeah. I'll take all the OLine we can get.

A way to access your profile without posting a comment would be nice. Just make the "Welcome [name]" in the top right clickable. 

06/08/2018 - 1:12pm That is rudimentary. When…

That is rudimentary. When there are multiple teams, multiple alliances, and multiple team strengths, it gets a lot more complicated.

 

06/08/2018 - 11:49am We're a ways off from that I…

We're a ways off from that I think.

06/07/2018 - 3:05pm To clarify, the "Fermi…

To clarify, the "Fermi Paradox" asks the question: If interstellar travel is possible, and there are many stars in the galaxy much older than the sun with Earth-like planets circling those suns... where is everyone? Why hasn't alien life older and more intelligent/advanced than us already visited Earth?

A strong proposed hypothesis is that, somewhere along the development of life, there's a "great filter" that stops any potential civilization from colonizing the galaxy. That filter could be that the development of multicellular life is rare, or intelligent life, or civilization, or that the development of life itself is rare. Regardless, the hope is that the "great filter" is somewhere behind us.

The pessimistic view is that the great filter is still ahead of us; that what we've accomplished so far has been done countless times in countless solar systems, and that war or famine or simple lack of resources stops a civilization from advancing to galaxy-wide colonization.

As such, the existence and placement of "great filter" asks the ultimate question: are we destined to colonize the stars, or doomed to go extinct on Earth?

The discovery of life on Mars does not prove that the great filter is still ahead of us, but it removes a rung from the possibility that it's behind us.
