Winning percentages at current school:
Dantonio had some early lean years and gets a recency bump but everyone else has been around a similar period. It's Urban and everyone else, everyone pretty close behind if you consider competition for Chryst is worth a couple games.

I think it might be sorted on number of bets placed.

Since I can't edit my replies I will have to keep adding on with new ones... I see no value on M at 3/1. Says less about my confidence in the team and more about the fact you will get way better odds if they lose one of Wisconsin/PSU/MSU. M is likely still around 3/1 if they cruise through the Maryland game. So why not wait until we can see some games and have some data points on whether that's a smart bet?
I would probably play USC at 10/1 and UCF at 40/1. Might be longshots but if either stays undefeated through week 7 you aren't getting anything close to those numbers, imho.

Washington is also 3/1. So even setting aside the fact that odds are not an endorsement of probability (which you correctly noted), this doesn't really peg us as the 4th playoff team.

I'm not a gambler but I think 3/2 odds for Georgia are better than 3/1 odds for Michigan.

As for whatever Blue Boy thinks was "deep": not intending to impress anyone here, if that's the suggestion. I have my own experiences with mental illness, personally and friends/family. Today was an interesting one that fell in line with the OP's question. Rarely go to the board with any "cool story bro" personal anecdotes but this is the drinking thread, so... draw your own conclusions why I shared.

I have a friend who called me to hang out. We aren't that close and I didn't know he was in town. He tells me he is going through a divorce and needs to just chill and get drunk. He then tells me he is bipolar and has never told any of our mutual friends. He tells me his wife called his family saying he needs to come back to Chicago because he is ill. He tells me he was in a clinic for 10 days but is all good. We watch Canadian gangster rap videos filmed at his condo after his wife moved out. He tells me some stories that stretch my limits to not judge bipolar individuals as "crazy." We eat delicious Puerto Rican food.

Drinking Tito's and lemonade with a friend who is in town because he's going through a divorce and his wife told his family he is going through a bad enough bipolar episode to get him to come back to Chicago. He agreed and is out from 10 days in a clinic getting evaluated. Had no idea about his diagnosis and we aren't that close and I don't really know why he trusted me to just lay it out there. Fortunately I'm familiar with the territory and he's on his meds but it's been interesting. We did smash some amazing Puerto Rican food; jibaritos are the shit.

No problem Pete and it's generally not a deleteable offense. I'm just doing my part to be the MGoThatGuy who points out it was linked on the front page. Someone else was supposed to reply and say "I don't always catch the stuff on the front page and appreciate that it's on the board now."

What is the precedent for this kind of comeback? At age 31 his velocity was gone and he was giving up the most runs in the AL. At 35 he is back near triple digits and a potential Cy Young candidate. JV is known for being staunchly against PEDs, advocating for stiffer penalties and more frequent testing. Skeptics from the Cano thread (looking at you stephenrjking), you think the pitcher doth protest too much?

My uneducated guess based on limited personal experience- because he's in a manic episode. You mentioned suspecting a psychological issue as well. The question of "why wouldn't he clarify" suggests a misunderstanding of mental illness.
My OP was also overconfident that he was not threatening coaches. But I did specify from the start it looked like an underlying health crisis and later elaborated this was just an opinion after taking in more of his Twitter feed.
|04/17/2018 - 9:47pm||I read a ton of tweets and still think it's a leap||
I read a ton of tweets and still think it's a leap to say he is making direct death threats to coaches. Read them all and decide for yourself.

Checked out his post history and its hard not to agree with others who have made unprofessional diagnoses. It sounds like he has been trying to launch his own cryptocurrency. More on topic and recent he posted some evidence of communication with M staff from the fall that show he was not entirely disassociated from the program. Nothing I would consider legitimately threatening to Harbaugh. Appears to be directed at whomever showed up at the home of his friend/family.
|04/17/2018 - 7:12pm||Reading the tweets again I think this is the most||
Reading the tweets again I think this is the most accurate take. He is pissed at Harbaugh for not appreciating the gravity of whatever to his friends/family but the threats are at the perpetrator of whoever "came to the house," not the coaches.

Nova was better. We lost because we clanked.
OP still makes some fair assessments, though there are surely several that went the other way if you look for them (without Maize-colored glasses).
Babysitter story is true, or at least that individual did in fact say Brunson watched his kid. I can confirm because I was there. Love ya dad!

My personal guide for cheapest pair you can find (price per ticket, fees included) as of 9pm Sunday in San Antonio:
Lower bowl sideline (110-114, 132-136)
Lower bowl sideline-ish (108-109, 115-116, 130-131, 137-138)
Lower bowl corners/baseline (101-107, 117-129, 139-144)
Upper bowl sideline:
Upper bowl baseline: can be had for $76 but you'd probably rather watch on TV

Given the sell-off from Nova/Kansas losing fans after Saturday night, where do you expect championship tickets for lower bowl sideline prices to settle when buying on April 1? I'd like to avoid Craigslist/scalpers and buy on TicketIQ. Hoping to score something in the AA-QQ range between sections 110-114 or 132-136 if we win.
