re: LSU greatest coach any sport - therick711
[quote]FWIW....I played baseball at LSU and my son ran track at LSU. He will be the first one to tell you that if you have 2 or 3 stud sprinters on your roster that are healthy once the NCAA preliminary and national meets take place, that the eventual champion is almost predictable. Do you follow co...

[quote]I wonder how many NC's Skip could have won if he coached 4 teams a year and if he could put a revolving 3 or 4 man line up of say, Brandon Larson, Eddy Furniss, Albert Belle, Brad Cress types all getting 8-10 at bats a game and your starting pitcher was your ace (Ben McDonald, Gausman, Nola) ...

re: Best SEC Defenses Yard Per Play Since 2000 - therick711
[quote]They basically give certain stats a weighted average. Hold Oregon to 2 YPP is worth more than holding Western Carolina to 2 YPP using formulas and such.[/quote] So it isn't stripping strength, it is trying to account for it. Let's just say if you don't know what they do and how they d...

re: Best SEC Defenses Yard Per Play Since 2000 - therick711
[quote]Well, the advanced stats that strip out opponent strength (which was ridiculed as being stupid) also think that 2011 Alabama > 2011 LSU defensively, but either way both were great.

[quote]that's not the best defense of all-time said the LSU fan. [/quote] Play Oregon and West Virginia instead of Kent State (#119 ypg) and UNT (#116 ypg), then we'll talk turkey.

re: Uber quadrupled fares for people trying to flee Sydney hostage crisis area - therick711
Uber says the price has been raised to encourage more drivers to go to that area, basically what happens all the time. People react like crazy persons because they "raised the price to gouge people." If there aren't any drivers, no one can leave. Uber drivers work when they want. It is basically...

[quote] yesterday's surge price gouge was an acute decision made by Uber Sydney's top brass. It was a deliberate, non-automated money grab that brought them rightful scorn in the public eye. They immediately back-peddled and rightfully so. [/quote] Nothing in your link suggests that it was non-au...
