A What-If Scenario

Hello 11W friends! I graduated as a Dayton Flyer, so I am not in any position to even suggest that the athletic director at another school (even if I'm an obsessed fan of that school's football and basketball team) should be called out, fired, or anything like that. That being said, I was r...

Weekly Probabilities 10/28

Here they are!  Again, although the process is objective, I acknowledge my probabilities of individual games are subjective, though I think this gives us a pretty good picture of where we are at.  *I tried to find the vegas or massey odds people talked about last week, but after a short se...
