I suspect there will be a lot of cantankerous fans in Columbus since tailgating and attendence is out this season.
To what end is a display of virile manhood on the football field if there are no fans to appreciate it?
It's a failure by the teacher. Grade your own students' work instead of just outsourcing it to a computer program.
In defense of teachers, they often have no choice; the district says "You will use this" and so they do; even if it does not work for their class. tech decisions are made and teachers live with the results.
Full disclosure: My wife is a teacher, and she, a special ed teacher, has to use a system designed for regular ed as the platform for virtual instruction. For example, because of zoom bombing early on, the district decided to turn off the ability to break into romms in Zoom. As a result, she cannot do one on one teaching with her students, even though they need it by the IEP. The districts response? No answer to multiple requests to turn it on for her. BTW, they use Zoom after first outlawing it because the system they bought for virtual classrooms doesn't work properly.
Of course, the district also has a separate special ed system she must also update, and when they switched systems despite saying stuff would transfer it didn't. training? A few hours of zoom.
teachers often are the victim of technology and of decisions made by head offices with no regard to what will happen in the field; they seem to think it will all be rainbows and ponies. Some of her fellow teachers were in tears just trying to get the system to work, I am tech savvy enough to patch together a solution.
The district is losing teachers mid year as well as will see a jump in retirement, and of course are upset teachers quit in the middle of the year and will wonder why they retired en mass.
So you don't think the context of the loss to Clemson last year was important?
Context is important to understand why you lost and what to change; but context is a point in time analysis. If the pattern is that you lose more than you win than clearly you are not an elite team, no matter how close the game. All the context in the world doesn't change the L to a W.
That would be the same if it were a blowout?
It's still an L, just more stuff needs fixing.
I'd guess there were several articles pointing out all the little details that led to the loss because people care about context when it's close.
Of course. It's important to understand what happened, b ut using context to rationalize performance is better than the record is an exercise only designed to make one feel better about losing. continuing to do that leads to accepting losing and not trying to get better.
There's a difference between saying "Here's why we lost and how we are improving" and "We lost close games so we really are a great team even if our record is a losing one."
The AI grading article points out the problem with turning over what should be a reasoned analysis to a computer algorithm. I wouldn't call it cheating, rather it's a failure of the system design. The students simply adapted to the situation once they discovered that the correctness of the answer did not matter, only having some key words. It's not a new tactic, when I was an undergrad I capitalized keywords in long essays, figuring the teacher had limited time to read all the tests and thus if I made it easy to spot key phrases my grade would reflect that, and they results seemed to confirm my hypothesis.
Multiple choice answers are easy to automate and have been even pre-computer scoring. Essay and short answer questions are not well suited to AI unless you have a very sophisticated algorithm, and in the example the process should have included a review of the results by the teacher to ensure the grades are valid. Instead, it appeared to be used as a time saver and thus problems arrose.
At some day in the future, football fans will look upon Ryan day as one of football's doyen.
It ignores a number of very close loses to highly ranked teams
That's like arguing because Cooper lost some close games to a highly ranked TTUN his record was that bad.
You know what you call a close loss? A loss.
TTUNs renumeration for harbaugh's salary has fallen far short of expectations.
Bails and Bennie’s girls...
With the resumption of play in the B1G, the specter of yet another loss to Ohio State, thus preventing this from being the year the streak ends, looms large for TTUN.
Yea. I got Britbox as a thank you gift from KQED. Pretty awesome lineup. Acorn TV is pretty good too.
I'll have to check it out.
The reason I keep my Netflix DVD subscription is they have many of the classic Brit TV on DVD.
I am a fan of Stephen Fry, and recommend:
A Bit of Fry and Laurie (If all you know Hugh Laurie from is House you need to dee him do comedy, start with Jeeves and Wooster)
Stephen Fry in America
Well, if you really want to go old school:
Dark Shadows (Original B&W)
Doctor in the House
Jeeves and Wooster
Aaron Sorkin's stuff - Sports Night, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
Some that never made it here but should have:
His condition is stable...
House of Lies
You’re a big damn hero...
SNL had some great lines in the early years...
More importantly UN added to the B1G's research strength as well as political support, much like Rutgers and UMD.
I prefer to assume people can change for the better, as can I.
This is the internet.
I think you are being a bit disingenuous. You start of saying you'll be downvoted, then argue multiple times how you get unfairly singled out and DV'd unreasonably.
We have had fans of other teams visit here, such as VT fans from KeyPlay, and not get DV'd, and I've visited there sites and had the same experience. In one case one of their fans came to my defense when another went after me.
You want to make an impassioned and cogent argument for your team? Great? Passively - aggressively accuse us of stuff? Nah, I'd pass.
Personally, I don't care if someone DV's me; and if someone wants to use DV's to show they disagree or are a serial DV'er when an opinion they don't like is posted, that's their problem.
Coaching and recruiting has resulted in TTUN's sustained asthenia that will require serious intervention to cure.
The concern I would have as an AD is the cost of playing. I suspect bowls will have to make themselves more financially attractive to get teams to come and play. Having lost all the ticket revenue for a year, going deeper in the red just to go to a bowl doesn't sound like a smart move.

by structures and policies do you mean the ones that award scholarships for being of a certain race, or level of income?
How about starting with local funding of schools so poor areas have far fewer resources to dedicate to education than more affluent areas?
