01/06/2015 - 10:17am CRex?

Just to make sure I'm not confusing people CRex had the epic stories about China, the Korean weddings, and Little Sister?

well, time to re-read. There goes my morning

Apparently having trouble with formatting on MGoAndroid... sorry

12/17/2014 - 1:18pm But why?

"easy for them to read and go through their progressions"

Progressions would be something like: Receiver X > Receiver Y > RB rolling out to flat > Tuck it and run.

Normally there would probably be a couple reads for each option (e.g. receiver X has his man beat, no safety help over the top = throw the post)

What is it that makes that offense easier to read? Fewer progression to go through (e.g. rolling out to the right, is receiver X open? throw, else tuck and run)? Or do multiple progressions read off the same player (e.g. Is the nickle/HSP doing X then throw to receiver X, else throw to receiver Y)?

He took down Dave Brandon.

Some off those emails that Brandon responded to with "you're drunk, go to bed" and "have a nice life" were to a family member of his IIRC.

He gave them to MGBlog, the boards were vicious, drove Devotee away. Turns out it was all true. Remdemption, return, all the MGoPoints.

10/04/2014 - 10:59pm In the words of John L Smith
09/16/2014 - 1:02pm I'm not sure we can agree

We'd have to look at the expected points from each if those field positions (which I believe has a direct relationship to adjusted win probability).

Using the Win Percentage Calculator to get a Expected Point value (I left the Game State at 5:00 left in 1st, no spread, but I don't think that should affect the expected points):

Your Group A then has Expected Points of (1.25, 1.37, 1.44, 1.44, 1.51) average of 1.40 points. Group B would have Expected Points of (.90, .90, .95, 1.00, 2.66) for an average of 1.28 points.

So without some hand - waving about momentum (isnt there a Mathlete article about that?)I don't know how you argue that Group A is preferable.

Still, that could have just been a bad choice of example datasets.

08/18/2014 - 2:49pm Sack Yards?

I thought around this blog we went with the sack yardage as counting against passing, not rushing.

just looking at the box score, seems like it was 90 yards rushing. -65 rushing yards on Clausen (sacks), and -31 rushing yards for "team". Is that more sacks?

Also, one of Dayton's bench players might be able to give Dakitch a run for his money on celebration moves...

03/22/2014 - 8:56pm slappy

At about 8:30 left in the second Syracuse pulled a Sparty, slapping the floor before giving up an easy basket. Made me chuckle a bit.

02/06/2014 - 10:11am Second world...

because, third world is a Cold War term. First World being US and allies, Second being Russia (USSR) and allies, and Third being anyone not affiliated with either.

That's some Jaden Smith level logic right there.

01/24/2014 - 12:06pm Deep South

Any chance there are enough people stuck in SEC country to warrant a event down here?

I'm in Huntsville, AL. Decent number of Michigan alumni with all the engineering in town. Maybe Atlanta or Nashville for higher population areas? I'd be willing to drove a bit.

01/22/2014 - 1:04am I'm confused...

That's just an out of focus picture of some ND players.

09/14/2013 - 1:40pm well

way this game is going, might not be the worst thing in the world.

12/06/2012 - 10:08am Seriously?

Right, he wasn't concerned with his current team. He pretty much threw away the whole season... oh wait. Rose Bowl.

No, the MCL is a red herring. it was the butler the whole time.

10/07/2012 - 9:29pm RE: Purdue's Shoes

I watched the game with a Purdue alum, which made watching the game all the more enjoyable. I asked the same question and was informed:


Similar to the 3rd down key shaking that people seem to be okay with or think it's the worst thing ever, Purdue brings out the keys for kickoff. If a student doesn't have keys to shake around they have to take off their shoe and wave it around instead.

09/17/2012 - 5:14pm Hate to burst your bubble,

Hate to burst your bubble, but that isn't the play where Denard breaks out for the touchdown...

09/09/2012 - 1:08pm Interesting note:

Michigan is the only team in the AP Top 25 with a loss.


(Boise sneaks into the USA Today at 25 with a 0-1 record)

09/08/2012 - 12:30pm RE: Mississippi State

I recently moved down to Huntsvill , AL for an engineering job. So I see a decent amount of Miss State grads (in fact my boss is one). As I understand, they are none of the best engineering schools in the SEC, but still not at the level of Michigan, Purdue, or other Big 10 schools.

This is possibly the greatest comeback I've ever read on the internet, and a great example of why I enjoy reading MGoBlog.

07/24/2012 - 9:47am Response Bias?

I think the only reason you are finding delusional Penn state fans, is they are the only ones responding on the internet.

All the sane ones have retreated in shame.

07/05/2012 - 3:08pm Waiting in Line

I haven't been able to go to Cedar Point since going middle of the week in May back when we got out early as seniors in high school.

You're not allowed to stay on a ride, but the only wait was the time it took you to walk back around the line.

So how can I justify standing in line for 2 hours for Dragster, when I was once able to ride it 5 times, along with Millennium 3 times, and Magnum 4, within the same amount if time?

Where is jamiemac to give us the lines?

I'd put money on UM profs to cover.

07/05/2012 - 12:19pm Off/Def Advantages

Are these calculated, or subjectively defined?

Can you use your PAN metric to calculate them, or is that exactly what you did?

m.go.licious is still broken on MGoAndroid. This post on MGoBlog now has too many "MGo"s in it. MGoAGGHHHH!!!

06/18/2012 - 6:02pm Fire up the Math-signal?

Unfortunately I'm on my phone at work, but did the Mathete create one of those win percent graphs for the ND game? Could it be compared to one from the MSU-W game to determine which one was more "flukey"?
