Yeah but we only beat them by 14, come on I demand at least 20pt victories.

The NY Times released a bot that you can play RPS against.  It is very good at it. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/science/rock-paper-scissors.html?_r=0

12/18/2011 - 2:26am I got student tickets in

I got student tickets in section 127, but one of my friends got their student tickets in section 124. And apparently some students got stuck up in the upper bowl in section 627.

The problem is, you're showing how a tie-break works.  But the original criteria before any of the tie-breakers take place is still the conference record.  So that means that even if MSU loses to Nebraska, and wins the rest of they're games, they're still be 7-1 in the conference.  Which means if we win out, we would be 7-1 in the conference as well, but even if Nebraska then wins the rest of their games, they would be 6-2, and thus we would have to look at the rules for a 2-way tiebreaker instead of a 3-way.  And then, the first criteria is head-to-head, which MSU would win.  So basically we need MSU to lose 2 more games, or we're out of the running for the division.

If ESPN3 doesn't work, there is a livestream of the game that should work here: http://www.firstrowsports.tv/watch/86073/1/watch-michigan-vs-michigan-st.html

He was talking about being bowl eligible in general.  He just got our 6th win, and you need at least 6 wins in order to go to any bowl game.  So, what OP is saying now is basically, even if we lost every game for he rest of our season, we would still make it to some bowl game.

09/15/2011 - 3:54pm I agree that cell phone

I agree that cell phone service is shoddy at best. I'm on verizon and at the games it is unrealistic to try and send a text. Sometimes, when I send something it will go instantly, other times I can try for a half hour and it still won't send. Also, if I'm getting a text, I may all of a sudden receive a handful of text that people had sent over the last hour or two.

I think those statistics just don't fit the model of people at the stadium. I'm assuming that the 100,000 is a random sample of the US population, in that case you will have different proportions of ages/genders/health than you will at the Big House, attending a football game. The 100,000 also probably include the very elderly, people in comas, or otherwise on their deathbed. I'm guessing that there aren't a lot of people on life support in the Big House.

Also the death count is probably counting people who die from accidents, like car crashes, or some industrial accident or whatever. I think something like that is much less likely to happen in the stadium.

On the flip side, going to a football game can be more exerting than the average experience for a person in the sample 100,000. It is outdoors, so people are exposed to extreme weather, either the heat and sun, or cold, rain/snow later in the season. that is much less likely to happen in the stadium. More people are standing, which is also more physically exhausting, it is loud and a generally stressful situation at times, so that might also have an affect.

Basically, there are way too many variables that are different in a crowd at a football game, than from the people in your study, and without knowing all the details, I don't think we can make a fair comparison.

Another question, is there a specified number of times that one should play the main rhythm before playing the last verse?

08/29/2011 - 10:50pm I've been in the student

I've been in the student section for the last 3 years, and I think this is mostly because they started micing the band. There is a small delay between when the band is playing, and when it comes through the speakers. You are hearing two different versions, one playing about 2 beats after the other, and it is hard to keep time. I've taken to watching the band director, otherwise I really can't tell where they are in the song.

Does anyone know, for the Duffy's package, is 'transportation' like a bug from Ann Arbor, or is it just from some place in Chicago to the stadium?
