If you are a terrible team embarking on a multi-year rebuild, then the best choice is to take Nick Bosa. 

1. He is the better player, just look at what his brother his doing in San Diego.

2. You will still suck next year and get to draft a QB (probably Tua) then

You want your team to be ready to help your rookie QB not get destroyed, drafting the QB first is a dumb move in situations like this one.

Ever since its inception the downvote has been misused. I don't think the downvote will ever be used appropriately either lol. Its unfortunate as it makes discussions with differing viewpoints more difficult to have.

The Browns definitely had some bad calls not go their way this game. The defensive back 7 needs to start tackling better so future games are not that close.

Great win! If your a coach, that's the exact type of game you wanted when you scheduled TCU. A tough game that we pull through, with tons of coachable material to choose from. A blessing we played TCU 2 weeks before Penn St. Lets come out focused vs Tulane and try to improve even more next week!

A lot of people point to the McMurphy story as proof that ESPN hates OSU, but what if the truth is the exact opposite? McMurphy gets fired from ESPN, then concots a "revenge" story centered around Urban Meyer/OSU. He gets all of the SJW around the nation riled up, which forces ESPN to hop aboard the national narrative. As the truth slowly surfaces, it seems more and more like Urban Meyer did not cover up domestic violence, but the narrative is so far off the rails by that point there is no going back. Now ESPN is forced to further alienate one of the top brands in the country to save face while McMurphy laughs his ass off at his new gig.

These guys say the same thing I have believed to be true for a while now, namely that spread-to-run systems that rely on getting (and winning) 1v1 matchups in space to win on offense do not work against teams of equal or greater talent. The system is fantastic vs teams you outclass, however, which is probably why it's still popular. I just hope moving forward that the head coach of tOSU football, from Urban Meyer and beyond, will use offensive systems that actually work on a schematic level against teams of equal or greater talent. Tressel was guilty of this as well, and I feel this fact has cost OSU a few national championships over the course of this young century. Let's hope the Haskins era is the start of a new strategic paradigm for our buckeyes.

I like anime. I think the fact that it all starts out in japanese limits the audience though, since the english versions are usually much worse. I'm guessing less than 1% of the commentariat on this site are interested in anime, which is why no discussions are sparked. If you want to spark a discussion, you would probably have to educate people/get them interested in it first.

Michigan has the most wins of any college football program in existence. They were beyond dominate in the youngest days of the sport and even as recently as the 90s dominated the best rivalry in sports. This most recent period, from the early 00s to the present day, is possibly the darkest stretch their program has ever endured, while our Buckeyes are in the midst of a golden age. As our rival's recent fate and this past month of August as shown us, this golden age won't last forever. Even giants fall. Make sure to see things as they are and enjoy the good times while they last. Go Bucks.

Not only AI, but don't sleep on VR when it comes to education either. Why attend online lectures governed by AI, when you could build a more hands on, experiential curriculum in digital space?

Comment 29 Jan 2018

Many people think the people who do the best on tests like these study flash cards/take good notes/work on weakness/etc/. 

Studies show that people who actually do the best are the ones who practice taking the tests the most. Same thing for regular classes as well.

Studying should therefore look like: Take a practice test, grade yourself, figure out the right answer to all the questions you missed and a strategy for getting them right the next time, Repeat the cycle as many times as you can.

1. IQ is overrated

2. Its much smarter to overpay your surgeons than underpay them.

Comment 29 Jan 2018

From my understanding, the numbers are calculated as if relative income = IQ. Therefore, the level of distortion that appears in the rankings is supposed to correlate to how overpaid/underpaid a particular class of jobs are. 

In other words, Surgeons obviously do not have an average IQ that high, how far off the mark that number is to reality is supposed to signify how overpaid they are on the whole.

Im not a big wrestling buff, so maybe I am missing something, but why are the Yargvin titles not included in that list? Is it not "the toughest international wrestling tournament"? When talking about notches in your belt as a wrestler, does that not at least put it on par with the World Championships and Olympics? Wouldn't that mean that Snyder has 5 world level titles as well as B&B, being the only one to win the toughest tournament of all twice?  

Comment 20 Jan 2018

OSU is up to #11 in the KenPom rankings now. Top 15 seems reasonable come Monday. 

Comment 19 Jan 2018

I believe South Korea accounts for 40% of the volume in the entire space. Their prices for cryptos are 20% higher than anywhere else in the world due to the sheer demand. In the crypto world they kinda are the big boy at this point. 

Comment 19 Jan 2018

Ok, I think I see what you mean now. Cryptocurrencies are not an application of blockchain technology, they are a part of the package, it does not make any sense to remove them. You can, and many currently are, build things on top of the blockchain, like you said, but its not an either or proposition with respect to the cryptocurrency. You have to build your other layer on top of the base layer of the blockchain + token. Also, different cryptocurrencies can have different properties, depending on the needs of its network. Utility tokens, Security tokens, Identity tokens, Membership tokens, etc. Though you can easily make your own generic token with nothing unique about it, as you also said. In fact, for those in the Columbus area, there is an Ethereum meetup that is supposed to happen sometime in February where they are going to create and experiment with a "Columbus" token. The token will be worthless for all intents and purposes, but it might be a fun experience to meet people in the space, learn more about this stuff, and see first hand how these things can be created.

I agree with your sentiment that there is a lot of mal-investment in the space though. People are blindly investing significant sums (at least for them) in more popular alternative coins that are under a dollar a piece hoping that it becomes the next bitcoin without understanding the concept of a market cap, much less what the coin is trying to do. 

I do think, however, there is some fundamental value to bitcoin, it just gets masked by the speculative "get-rich-quick" mentality that is prevalent in the space right now. There are some interesting projects set to come on line within the next few months that should curb, or maybe even solve outright,  the liquidity problem in the space as well. 

I think we both agree on this point-

The  big takeaway from this thread should be: Be careful if you want to invest in the space. Read and understand everything you can about a project before deciding what and how much you are willing to invest. Be prepared for an extremely bumpy ride.  

Comment 24 Dec 2017

Actually, this is not accurate. Every blockchain has a network token (cryptocurrency) that gets passed back and forth to facilitate the recording of the transaction. Without the network token, the blockchain cannot record anything to the ledger. Rather than thinking of them being in a road and vehicle relationship, think of the network token as the gas that powers the vehicle. As you might have guessed from here, the blockchain and its network token exist on the same base layer, with various interesting platforms and applications capable of being built on top of them. 

This is actually a very common misunderstanding, many people like to separate the 2 because of the mis-information campaign the banks are running against bitcoin, where they do the same.
