Ronaldo will get another one while being the equivalent of an #8 seed getting hot in the playoffs.

05/22/2018 - 7:42pm I wonder this all the time.

I wonder this all the time. Not specifically what would have happened if Moeller has stayed, but rather what if Lloyd hadn't been coach. 

Was Lloyd the great manager whose steady hand helped with the national championship, or was he the conservative old man who let all that talent go to waste?

I think both can be true in this instance.

Not saying I hate him.

He's a great coach who bled Maize n Blue... until he threw it under the bus.

He can be both things.

Also, I wouldn't use the national championship defense. This is the same logic that people at Penn State use to say Joe Paterno wasn't that bad.

It's not a rich rod thing.

Anyone who got hired was going to be sabotaged by Lloyd unless the university hired one of his buddies.

05/16/2018 - 6:49pm Lloyd putting himself above

Lloyd putting himself above the program and sabotaging the search for his successor sent us into a 7 year tail spin which negates nearly all the good will he built up.

Regardless of your positions on Miles, Rodriguez, and Hoke, Lloyd had several opportunities to act in the best interest of University and program. He instead chose to let everything burn.

04/06/2018 - 12:38pm Agreed. But it's not a 1 to 1

Agreed. But it's not a 1 to 1 correlation. 

Whether a player is fastest on the team or lags behind definitely matters. But I'd like to hear more about whether a player is actually good at his position and wow-ing the coaches more than I'd like to hear about them being .01 seconds faster in the 40. 

04/06/2018 - 12:14pm Am I the only one who is

Am I the only one who is getting tired of people equating gym metrics with on-field success/readiness?

Especially in the case of DPJ. He's a freak in the gym and in the measurements, but people over-hyped themselves for guy who was still a freshman and had tons to learn on-field and in-game before he becomes a gamebreaker. 

I think people are too easily distracted by these things.

I attempted a modernized M-friendly bar finder. Still in super-beta, and I still have more places to add, but if there's interest, I could re-focus my attention on it:

I agree, that it's a big insane to hold the tourney in NYC, it is definitely to our benefit as opposed to most of the Big Ten.

We definitely have more people here than the Iowas, Minnesotas, and Nebraskas of the conference. Besides us, I feel like only PSU has a similar NYC presence (yes, that includes Rutgers/Maryland)

My first tip, learn how to use reddit and subscribe and engage with their entrepreneur group. Have learned so much from the people in that group. It's probably about 20% people who have done what you're trying to do, and 80% who want to learn. Really great exchanges of info.

I assume it's a prestige/consistency thing. I know a lot of people love to talk about "their seats" and how they know all the people in their rows, etc.

But from a purely economic standpoint, it seems like a tough sell.

10/04/2017 - 10:16am Also, looking at this game,

Also, looking at this game, it looks like the majority of people will end up getting below face + PSD.

I'm assuming that ticket holders are also taking a bath on the non-rivalry games.

So what's the value prop for season tickets any longer?

I have a baseball partial season ticket package and because I travel tons for work, I end up having to sell about half my tickets per season, and I'd estimate:

  • 60% of my seats go for well below face on gameday, some as low as $5 for bad weather, bad opponent games.
  • 20% maybe about face (before Stubhub takes it's cut) and
  • 20% that actually would go above face.

I could easily replicate my ticket package by buying a la carte for less than what I pay now. The only reason I've kept my seats is because when the team makes the playoffs, I get first access to pre-pre-pre-sale and can usually flip any tickets I don't use to pay off the package.

Without a playoff incentive, and with alternating years of no homefield rivalry games, what is the selling point of the season package at the Big House?

Looking for 2, so I guess I'll plan to get whatever the bottom price on Thursday, maybe Friday is.

 

BTW, love these posts because of the data science and evidence behind all the explanations. I like to track sporting event prices like the stock market, taking into consideration things like competing events, mean prices, etc. So these posts are awesome to me.

Considering the weather, plus the late start, think there will be people waking up Saturday morning, looking out the window, and saying "Screw it"?

Or is this flying too close to the sun?

Guys, I'm going to apologize on this one.

This will be mGoGirlfriend's third game I'm bringing her to (one each of the last two seasons), and so far, we've caught rain for the first two weekends, which is crazy because they were early Sept.

I know I was tempting the weather gods by bringing her to the night game... looks like I chose poorly.

08/10/2017 - 2:03pm I feel like Bleacher Report

I feel like Bleacher Report has gotten a lot better over the last few years. They seemed to have focused on getting local editors to actually generate content and left the gossip and listicles to Deadspin and Barstool Sports.

 

Still not amazing, but less deserving of the disdain it's previously gotten.
