Here were Ross's numbers from Big Ten games last year, including the Big Ten Tournament:
That's 317 total minutes, or 15 minutes a game. Excluding the Big Ten Tournament, it's 14.7 points a game. I'm not sure where 6-8 minutes comes from, other than perception.
You're right about the location of Covelli Arena; I was caught up on the Panera Bread that sits across from St. John since Sam Covelli owns it & all the others. Fixed.
I'm looking forward to Wrestlemania XXX, brother. Hulk Hogan is hosting it, dude.
There are several sites out there that measure and break down other sites' traffic. If anyone wants to look up this site's traffic, all they have to do is go a-googlin'. Here are my heart-felt convictions about analyzing traffic stats:
I think you may have missed the irony he went for.
If you have writing before the 2013-2014 wrestling season it may be gone. I think a few months of content were saved and little else.

EDIT: Because I felt like going the opposite route, I managed to edit this Skull Session down to a kindergarten reading level with Hemingway. It's supposed to be used to simplify cluttered writing, but I overdid it a little. I recommend putting a piece of your own writing in and seeing what it says.
Politics-based bashing violates the Commenting Policy, no matter which direction it goes. Downvotes usually teach people to stop, but not always.
Let me be blunt: you're in violation of the Commenting Policy. If you keep it up, the mods have tools in their inventory that can fix the problem.
I think that if the background had remained grey I'd be happier with it.
Could you expand on this criticism? The old background's hexidecimal color value was ECECEC and the new background's value is EEEEEE. Those are nearly identical, so I don't think I understand this criticism.
By the links being jumbled, do you mean text overrunning other words, or something else?
The new format isn't change for change's sake. Something Jason has tried to be clear about is that in large part Project Tatum was an upgrade for the staff, something to make publishing easier and more effective. Those are improvements that aren't visible on the user end, but are definitely present. For example, each time I upload a photo for an article it saves me a minute or two because it's much easier to resize, crop, and make other changes to it, and I uploaded a few hundred photos last year.
The old format wasn't as clean as you remember. On the user side, the biggest visual differences would be the elimination of white space on the edges of the screen and more photos on the front page and articles. Generally speaking, those are good visual design practices.
Neither you nor anyone else are not obligated to like the changes, but it would be nice if people who object to the website's new design -- and believe me, I have been annoyed by ESPN.com redesigns 4-5 times -- would keep in mind that there is good reason for it, and it can take weeks to get used to a good design you initially can't stand.
Noteable. It should be spelled Notable.
As a tribute to Grumpy Cat.

Eh, there is growing awareness that BMI isn't a great system to determine fitness. Most nutritionists will tell you that body fat percentage is a better measure of health than BMI, and you can measure that easily with a $3 body fat caliper.
There are different scales to measure athletes/people with lots of muscle. For example, Cal Berkeley uses the Bod Pod and the InBody720 Body Composition Analyzer, which measure air displacement and electric currents respectively to determine lean muscle/body fat and weight distribution in limbs and torso.
And a PSA for anyone interested: if you go to Ohio State's Exercise Science Laboratory and pay $30-65, you can get the fat calipers, Body Pod, and hydrostatic weighing done.
Hard and fast with the truth: that's the official site's motto.
What I mean is that you should embed a maximum of one and hyperlink the rest. For example, taking Vico's Twitter feed:
