Passing mechanics can be improved over time, natural speed can't be taught.

I think both can improve over time with training, probably by about the same amount.  I don't think people are pissed that we have a QB that can run, just that the passing seems to be spotty.  I would be willing to trade a few spectacular runs a year for a lot more passing completions, even though I love Braxton's runs.

Maybe you should eat a shoe.  You know, just so somebody does.

Yes, the Buckeyes were included in Waller's top four schools — along with Alabama, Notre Dame and Northwestern — but Ohio State's unlikely to offer according to sources we've spoken with. The Buckeyes are happy with Joe Burrow and will not be offering another quarterback unless something changes significantly with Burrow's status. If they do, slap some steak sauce on a pair of Sperry's, because I'll eat my shoe.

Miller started too soon but he went  6'1 220 when he started, we had no choice

Well, a guy named Kenny Guiton was on the team at the time . . .

Jordan's list has confirmed visitors.  There will be others who come who are not on the list.

Jason, I don't know if this has been updated recently, but I have had little luck with our search bar. (W7, Firefox)

  1. There's a lot of white space that's unusable, so typing in the search box cuts off the tops and bottoms of letters.
  2. Search isn't friendly to variations in spelling.  "Ohio State" will not pull up anything on "OhioState" or "Ohio-State," even though it would on, say, google.

Edit: The font (size) for this enumeration (and bullets) is different from the standard font.

You cannot quantify the likelihood of a group of teenagers and twenty-somethings (or anybody, for that matter) winning a game.

They didn't quantify.  They had people give educated guesses.  For those of you who aren't educated in psychology, I'll sum up 50 years of research for you:  People are bad at guessing.

Whoops, I first read this as 'this is why I don't like meth.' I was thinking, that's good for you.

I was thinking, isn't this DJ?  From Marion?

I'm in an inferential statistics class right now.

You might want to take that a bit more seriously.  I teach a variation of probability and statistics, and I hope you take some time to understand the multiplication and why it's done.

What you're talking about is almost perfectly dependent events.  That is, if we beat MSU, then we win the rest of our games (~80% of the time).  If we don't, we already have a loss.  The probability of beating MSU is 50%, and conditional on beating them, the probability of winning the rest is (80-)100%, then we will go undefeated (40-)50% of the time.  The if and only if MSU case is like a fake coin that either is heads on both sides or tails on both sides, but it's a 50/50 chance which coin you get.  The independent case is covered by Fairfax.

With a friend like you I'll never need an enema.

If your friend is giving you the equivalent of an enema . . .

Yes, ratings, but they've pulled in 6 composite 3* OL.  I doubt that's anywhere near tops in the country.
