Ya, you must be right, but then that doesnt really align with Indiana "bringing safeties down to ABSOLUTE DISRESPECT range." we need to have the fox camera director for FFFF games

Is Indiana only playing with 10 guys on that last clip? I guess that's kinda fair when playing rutger

10/31/2018 - 3:27pm does total points include…

does total points include defensive scores? if so, should take those out

reaction when baird's 3 goes in is awesome. just how happy he is the instant it goes from 'hey this might go in' to 'yeaaahhh baby' is great to see. love the genuine euphoria and support for the teammate

i didnt mean to imply that he shouldnt be allowed to wear them... i was just more curious as to the back story. did maar encourage him to do it, did he do it in practice one time and shot really well, etc.  i feel like there's a better explanation than 'he wanted to' out there

04/05/2018 - 8:24am Pink shoes

I thought they were a cool and unique thing some players on the team were doing. i just dont get why Jaaron Simmons was wearing them. I get why MAAR wore them - he wore them practically all season - in order to get that good juju from the B1G tourny last year. And i get why Duncan copied him when he was slumping. Maybe it's been answered somewhere before, but i've never seen it, or heard the announcers  talk about it. Anyone know the story behind simmons? I mean, he wasn't even on the team last year.

 

 

03/26/2018 - 5:07pm he made contact, and it was a foul

but it was not a flagrant foul. they called it a flagrant because it was supposedly a 'dead ball' foul that occured after the reach-in foul the fsu defender made. i'm pretty sure the ref hadnt even blown the whistle yet on the reach-in, and the sound waves definitely hadnt gotten to robinson yet. expecting him to stop his clear-out motion on his hand in that scenario is ridiculous. 

I was fine with them calling a foul, but two an the ball? come on man

03/23/2018 - 2:21pm "This game is likely to be closer to A&M."

does that mean we might only win by 20?

03/21/2018 - 4:54pm lower right of the chart

Can we talk about why NBAers are taking shots from 4-8 ft away when the defender distance is even further? Wouldnt that imply the path to the basket is open and they could go in for a dunk/layup? But instead they are taking short J's and making only 50-80% of them

I think a lot of what you are trying to communicate can be found in this book

03/18/2018 - 12:24am Yes!!

03/17/2018 - 1:27pm gotcha

well then i hope it ends up being a long time before we get a recap after a deep run

03/16/2018 - 3:09pm gif request

Ace, i posted this after your game recap, but i wanted to make another plea. the slo-mo shot of wagner going pbffftbtfbb needs to be in 'one frame at a time'

thanks

03/16/2018 - 10:32am no thats something else

a raspberry has a similar sound perhaps, but has a more tightly pursed lips and usually involves the tongue

03/16/2018 - 9:45am Z in foul trouble

made him sit for most of the first half. That meant extensive minutes for simmons and even some play for eli brooks. 

03/16/2018 - 9:40am need gif of wagner

doing that pffftt sound. not sure what it is called. i searched the internet some and best description seems to be a "lip trill." Some refernced motorboating but that has a different meaning to me after wedding crashers

anyway that slo-mo version they aired a couple of times before commerical breaks perfectly sums up this game

03/05/2018 - 11:53am MAAR

I kinda thought Raak deserved it more. he has been consistently filling up the state sheets with less streakiness than Mo. I give the edge to him over Z just based on who i want handling the ball in late game situations. Always nervous when they foul Z

They should play duke, then we got winner. that seems fair

02/06/2018 - 2:24pm i dont get how this is a bad thing

People complaining of losing their jobs to robots can (or be replaced by people who will): 1) learn to maintain, program, or build a robot; 2) work at a company that makes products that now can afford to sell to a wider market because of lower shipping costs; 3) earn less money (ie market wage) working at amazon picking things off shelves, .... 

the option of getting paid above market value to do some obsolete profession should not be on this list. if you want to do that, at least be something interesting like a blacksmith and work at renaissance fairs.

i dont want to live in a world where we take "From each according to ability; to each according to need."

 

02/06/2018 - 1:23pm thats not true

the first 35 minutes of a basketball game does not actually count. This is why announcers will always clamor to let the players decide the game in the last 5 minutes rather than have the refs make a call

01/27/2018 - 9:19am serious question

whats wrong with the "amazonification" of the economy?

it may be sad for the individual people who lost their jobs at brick and morter stores, but online retail is simply more efficient. I feel it is akin to lamenting the job loss of people who shoed horses or tended stables as the automobile made those jobs obsolete. 

those people will unfortunately go through a tough transition, but that is a necessary evil in an evolving world

01/25/2018 - 9:49pm this one wasnt on the refs

give purdue their "due"

01/08/2018 - 11:49am Fulmer

Wait... he didnt cost us the coaches poll? I've been saying F--- that guy for years because of that.

Also, based on the voting details you showed, even if whoever had voted us 4th, put us 2nd, we still would have been down 2 votes.... so why do i remember this being such a huge deal?

12/29/2017 - 4:02pm your second set of graphs

which plots sack rating against plays/holding call shows a positive correlation. One would expect that teams that get more sacks would be able to draw more penalties (ie lower plays/holding call and thus negative correllation). This tells me there is a deeper bias here than just against michigan. What do you make of this?

 

also, it would be cool if you called out who the other outliers were in the graph and showed a couple other big-name programs, just for context

12/04/2017 - 1:39pm Dorian Thompson-Robinson

I'm seeing that other than Michigan, Patterson might be interested in UCLA. This could help us to possibly flip the commitment of Thompson-Robinson who chose UCLA over us. Could be a win-win for us

11/27/2017 - 3:15pm hurst hold

disagree with your assessment here. that is a hold. Hurst has beaten past his man with 3/4 of his back to the OL, but he is still grabbing the front of his jersy. hurst needs to learn to flop when he gets that kind of position to sell it better i guess

11/17/2017 - 9:21am Hanlon's Razor

was the quote brian was reaching for concerning big ten refs being incompetent vs plotting conspiracies https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanlon%27s_razor

Its a good quote... i use that one a lot when people get all "bush did 911" near me

(i hope this doesnt violate no politics rule)

11/15/2017 - 11:03am dont think so

i interpretted that rows with 4 games remaining as if the 3rd matchup was the B1G championship game if we somehow were able to win the East. There could hypothetically be 3 more rows after that to look at if we went on to the CoFoPoff

11/08/2017 - 10:16am msu?

they are currently ranked higher than psu and our loss was by a much narrower margin

11/08/2017 - 10:13am all teams have flaws

the passing O is definitely a big one for us. but saying that a top 10 team would beat us because of that is not justification for leaving us out of the top 25. just that we shouldnt be in the top 10. 

11/02/2017 - 11:45am nice chart

is there a reason this years msu and purdue are excluded?

10/31/2017 - 2:10pm flacco did win a superbowl

and it wasnt entirely because of the defense. he made some impressive throws in that run. just because he's not starting your fantasy team this year doesnt mean he sucks. he's still the starter on an nfl team. i'd love to have that level of player at michigan

10/18/2017 - 1:47pm i think it was more because

i think it was more because of how repetitive he was. we get it, move on.

also he kept talking about how great a job the refs are doing after every nth penalty called. saying the old trope of 'if you do that the refs will call it every time'
