[quote]Against Power 5 competition, we were 5th in conference in 2009 in yards per play. Where are you getting your stats? [/quote] Ah, I wasn't selecting for BCS AQ/Power 5 conference stats....

re: Chavis's departure will end up being a blessing - Dead Mike
[quote]Yards Per Game and Points Per Game are popular stats to use, but they're by definition a product of the number of snaps and number of drives a defense faces per game. Miles's fundamental approach to football is to shorten games as much as possible, and this is easily seen in "Total" stati...

re: Chavis's departure will end up being a blessing - Dead Mike
[quote]All of those nice stats really don't mean a thing. You are not a "great" defensive coordinator if you average 3 losses per year during your 6 tenure (18 losses) and lose 4 of 6 bowl games. Considering this past season's putrid offensive output, I'd normally agree with you & let Chavis...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Dead Mike
Dodged a bullet with my CSP. I forgot to cancel or downgrade before I got hit with a $125 annual fee. Once I got an e-mail notification, I called them and I was able to downgrade to the Chase Sapphire and have the fee credited next billing cycle....

re: Coming into a small inheritance.. what to do with it? UpDated - Dead Mike
It checks out. I spent $2000 on a 6-month trip to Tahiti, now that doesn't include airfare because I stowed away on a Panamanian oil freighter. Also no hotel, because I built a dwelling from twigs and mud....

[quote]I thought it was just for the card you have, i.e. I have the Delta Amex but I am still eligible for any bonus from any other Amex card. [/quote] That was my assumption as well, and it still might be true, but when I browse through credit cards on my normal IP address, it shows which card I...

I have a 3-cup/1 mug press and an electric kettle that'll hold temps for a while. I usually only drink one cup on the weekends, but if I want two, the turnaround time is about 6 minutes from grind-to-press....

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Dead Mike
Might be a question for r/churning, but I'm considering booking a trip for 2 to Toronto around the middle of 2015, and I'd like to cover most of it with CC rewards if it's feasible. There are some handicaps, though; I already blew my CSP load last year (50k/3k spend) and depleted my points with...

re: Where has that offense been? - Dead Mike
Sounds like people are getting a false positive impression of this offense from one game. TAMU has the #105 overall defense in ypg and the #113 overall defense in rushing ypg. Running 10 jet sweeps or whatever doesn't mean we've had an offensive revolution....

re: Anybody use that Acorns app? - Dead Mike
Isn't it $1/month and .25-.5% annually to use the service? I like the idea but it seems like it'd be more cost-effective to set up a low-dollar automatic transfer to your savings or investment account....

[quote]1. Personal foul with the ball on our 5 yard line - That's on Miles because his players act like hot-headed morons and have no fear of consequences.
