Salary vs. Culture.

Wonder if he got a raise?

05/19/2018 - 11:42am Ever heard of salary negotiations?

He wanted to start a bidding war.

05/19/2018 - 11:39am You must

You must be new to American Politics

05/17/2018 - 9:41am Impressive

In a certain light -- framed as "what this guy accomplished" -- it's actually impressive.

Commissioner successfully convinces America that his league can cheat and its ok. That's super impressive on a level of hoodwinkery.

05/16/2018 - 2:33pm Litigation reserving

Another actuary can come on and correct me if I'm wrong (not my specialty here), but reserves are usually 20% for immediate malpractice claims. Obv this case is not textbook, but its weird that its so. . . normalized?

I wonder how much insurance is covering here.

05/16/2018 - 2:28pm Dude, this is the internet

Faux outrage or GTFO!

Bron will end up better than MJ. And old people will tell at clouds, shouting"nostalgia!".

I grew up in Chicago in the 90s. And LJ is better.

05/13/2018 - 1:45am I didn't

Just trying to be funny, probably ended up more of a jerk than funny.

05/12/2018 - 3:14pm Doubling down

He took a UNC "Athlete Lit" class.

So you're gonna have to explain what "words" are now.

05/12/2018 - 1:34pm UNC grad

He took UNCs "Athlete Lit" class.

So you're gonna have to explain what MacBeth is now.

05/12/2018 - 12:07pm That's not how the fable goes

The Fox DOESNT eat the grapes, which is why he says they must be sour.

Dumbass.

:-P

05/11/2018 - 6:22pm I never understood this logic

The buck stops at the CEO?  The GM?  The Coach?

It stops wherever you want it to stop.  But if the argument is "the buck stops with the leader", then the CEO should be fired every time something bad happens.

 

In any case, I find this an accurate description of capitalism:
Shit rolls downhill; profits roll up.

05/11/2018 - 10:38am Midwest culture does not tolerate payments to players

See:
Tresses, Jim
Bridges, Miles
Rapists, Miles of
@, MSU/PSU

(Get out of jail free cards are payments-in-kind)

05/08/2018 - 5:05pm Record since 2007

That is a stat we need to get rid of.

04/23/2018 - 2:31pm Wait

Pong had teams?!

Being not-snarky for a second, I agree with your premise.

04/21/2018 - 12:19am Your reasons

Your reasons for agreement are much better than mine.

I just agree because I work in health analytics. And he said that's growing. Woo!

04/20/2018 - 1:47am Word order is important

Just because you're fucking the lizard king, does not mean
you are the fucking lizard king.

04/19/2018 - 3:49pm Granted

Granted, Grant has Some News on Newsome, Grant.

04/19/2018 - 11:41am I have a solution

$40 donation to charity. Boom: eligible!

04/19/2018 - 10:42am W-L

W-L is the only thing that matters. Everything else is just justifications that can easily be changed if the W-L record changes.

04/19/2018 - 10:38am Sorry, he just had a long typo

Real reason why he thinks its a joke is this:

"We haven't won it in a while. Other teams, especially rivals, have. Therefore, I need to diminish it so I can feel better about my team."

And I do the same thing. Its just more ennui.

04/19/2018 - 10:28am Rx

"Look kid, if you can't put a few opioids in and play, you're a coward. All the cool kids are sacrificing for the team."

It could easily be construed that way. And would if this were Brian Kelly saying Zordich' comments.

04/18/2018 - 11:29am S

People keep saying "midrange shots are bad", and they assume that means "all midrange shots are EQUALLY bad." That's not how stats work.

Midrange shots depend on
A.) Quality of shooter
B.) Quality of shot.

If teams leave you open for a midrange shot and you hit open midrange shots 70%, that's really friggin good!

04/17/2018 - 6:58pm He's a Sparty

Winning games means no police investigations. Duh.

04/17/2018 - 6:57pm levity is appreciated. 

levity is appreciated.  Especially good levity.

 

*waits for someone to scream "TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY!*

04/17/2018 - 6:51pm The fallacy in your logic

Is rifles are really friggin' cool!

I want XFL style kickoffs!

04/17/2018 - 5:58pm That song

That song was born in Canada.

04/17/2018 - 3:21pm Stunning?!

Most stunning for me was the band Chicago is from Illinois and Kansas is from Kansas. Like, stunning in a funny kinda way.

04/17/2018 - 10:52am *university* coached that way

I believe "assault people" is in their mission statement.

04/17/2018 - 10:50am Posting history

Go through your posting history and find the political thing. Ace begged some people yesterday i think.

If you still can't figure it out, you probably shouldn't post. I'm sure you're innocent tho.

04/16/2018 - 3:08pm I'll see your stupid, low bid and raise it

I hope he's better than Woodson.

04/13/2018 - 2:14pm Proof that you are all bots

Just bots spamming conditional robot logic.

IF: coach for [rival] team wants injured player to play
THEN: coach is an asshole. Player is clearly injured -- coach will bring irreparable harm.

IF: coach for [Our] team wants injured player to play
THEN: player is clearly not injured. This is good motivational ploy.

04/13/2018 - 2:12pm Proof that you are all bots

ERROR: double post.

Danger Will Robinson!

04/12/2018 - 2:47pm I think he just wanted to end

I think he just wanted to end with the depressing part to keep it on brand with recent football reporting.

You could say the toggle is set to Brand:on.

;-)

04/11/2018 - 9:58am Worked well the year before too

I believe we even set records!

Just admit it -- you have no idea whether it will work, but if it doesn't, its a convenient scapegoat.

04/10/2018 - 3:14pm Wait

So you can choose NOT to say I told you so?! Quick someone tell MGrowTiresome!

04/06/2018 - 5:26pm NEWB

Look, you're missing the point.  Let me translate for you:

"You are dumb.  I am better than you.  I'm also more well-endowed."

Get it now?

03/31/2018 - 4:42pm No politics!

You're talking about our president's boss. This could get political.

03/28/2018 - 10:41am Vegas too

Pretty sure I've never heard anyone lose money in Vegas either.

03/28/2018 - 1:41am Yep

Bag men in the NBA. They pay x.
Someone else pays x+1. Happens in all sports.

So why pay nba players?!

03/28/2018 - 1:38am Ah, that explains it

You watch fox!

(Point and laugh at the minority)

03/27/2018 - 8:53am Its all perspective, man

We expect the trend to continue. Our parents had better lives than our grandparents. Our grandparents better than their parents. And now we are expected to have a worse one. We deal.

I'm a 27 year old actuary, have studied basically two hours after work almost every night after work since undergrad. And yet, I live in an apartment with other guys while my parents owned houses on military salaries at this age.

I think its foolish to dismiss the benefits both generations received. We received many, but some benefits won't be there for us. Medicare and Social Security are due to become bankrupt. The job market was/is worse. Etc.

I understand paying your dues -- I have -- but to say "its easier" is to miss the things that are harder. Financially, our generation does not have it as easy as people who went before us. Just look at expected wealth: we are the first generation to have it decrease in almost 100 years. Again, we expected the trend to continue; it didn't.

/end rant.

03/26/2018 - 11:09am Remember

He was a Belein recruit. (They stole KBD from us). Coach B doesn't recruit your typical athlete. Almost all his recruits are high character kids. You can usually tell who's gonna play well for other teams based on whom they steal from us. This is no exception.

Brunson, V Edwards, KBD.

Draymond Green is a (kind of) exception tho. He was going Blue until last minute Izzo steal early in Beleins tenure. Little known fact.

03/15/2018 - 11:39am Humans, narratives, and data

Data clearly shows that freshman wide receivers suck, regardless of position coach. Therefore, we can expect them to improve based on the experience alone.

So when they do improve, people will of course say "its because of the coach".

03/12/2018 - 6:01pm +1

Informative

03/11/2018 - 11:45am In my defense

I did get the girls all the time, in hs.
(Was also our HS RB and PG, so, caveat)

Get told I curse too much tho, now that I'm a grown up. And girls come by less as I get fatter.

But seriously, I was raised by a VERY conservative family. Church, no guns, no dancing. And all three kids went to jail. (We're fine now. Navy pilot, actuary, and govt contractor. But still.)

03/01/2018 - 9:17am NOOOO

Do NOT tempt the koala!
