One way to get your kids into fishing is to get them a mystery tackle box subscription ( They have a beginner series which sends them a monthly box of lures, tackle and instructional content, specifically for newbies. Its a great way to get started (beyond the rod/reel purchase)

11/14/2017 - 12:17am Me too: Wagner at the 4 for that game?

I wonder if we think about starting Teske at the 5 for games against teams like Purdue that have a huge Ivan Drago esque mofo at center.  Start it as Teske-Mo-Matthews-MAAR-Z.  This would mitigate the risk of Mo picking up quick fouls right out of the gate and would make Haas work for those baskets over someone who can match his size.  Then you can get Mo in more advantageous situations when Drago has to sit.

The only problem is that you really would like your 5 to shoot 3s to draw Haas away from the basket, and I dont think Teske or Davis will be a threat to do that.

09/01/2017 - 10:38am You forgot Thomas Rawls

Starting RB for Seattle, likely to split carries with Eddie Lacy.  Even though he finished his career with CMU, he's still our boy, right?

04/07/2017 - 2:47pm but he'll be here for 2018 season too

Still my third choice after bamba and alstork, but not a bad option if those dont happen.

See Kenpom "most similar".  Another deadly 3pt shooter, yes pls.

Ed feng puts together a great predictor tool as well:


03/13/2017 - 12:50am One area of advantage: transitions and tos

Ok st seems to rely a lot on transition opptys, they get a lot of turnovers (46th), and play a high paced game (64th). I need some stats gurus to see if that's the truth, but we generally are a very low turnover team, and will limit that part of their game as beilein teams have done in the past. They also depend a lot on free throws (78th) while we are one of the lowest fouling teams in the country (28th). I still worry about their torrid 3pt shooting and o-rebs, but these are two major avenues we should be able to close off. Just gotta box out and close out those perimeter rotations.

THREE plane crash survivals?  I dont even know how to react to that

03/05/2017 - 10:58pm Walton now 3rd in B1G PoY on kenpom

After his record setting game tonight, Walton is up to 3rd in the kenpom Big ten player of the year standings. Only behind Swanigan and Happ. Great way to finish the regular season!

09/08/2015 - 4:51pm FOIA Request Avoidance- Brandon's disappearing Inbox?

My question is about the "Dave Brandon Emails":  Brian has mentioned that he had heard that the department regularly deleted Dave's inbox specifically to avoid responding to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA requests).  This never came up in the book, so I was curious:

1) Did Bacon hear of this or other similar practices to try to avoid accountability and culpability from the athletic department?  Were FOIA requests returned promptly relating to Dave and if not, why not?

2) If the inbox was being deleted, who was doing the purging?

3) Topic-wise, were they only deleting Dave Brandon's ridiculing emails to fans or was there other topics that he insisted be un-traceable to the press?

4) Since deleting emails for this purpose would appear to be against the law for a public employee, is there still some legal repurcussion that Brandon could face?

06/06/2015 - 5:45pm Buy another copy

I want to buy another copy- can i?  and how?

09/26/2014 - 12:18am Just tell me what to do?

Who do I write/call/email/harass to get Dave Brandon fired?

09/22/2014 - 1:30pm What was the attendance at the game?

Miami was only 103k, did this game actually have >100k in attendance?  That type of failure would mean we can finally fire Dave Brandon.

09/11/2014 - 4:06pm I want Mike Hart back

Seems like he wouldve smoked this team on some of those plays.  Can we please hire him to replace Fred Jackson?
