re: Probability question, help - lsumatt
I have to think about it more, but I think the answer is: 1- (15/16)^7 = 0.3635 or 36.35% for one 10 time flip. getting it to work once in 10K flips is: 1- (0.6365)^10,000 ~= 100%...

re: Probability question, help - lsumatt
[quote]That is a much simpler explanation than any text book or professor. I thank you, good sir. [/quote] lol. I am sure it does seem simpler since it is WRONG! By foshizzle's math, if the coin were flipped 30 times, there would be over a 100% chance of it happening. So let's throw away th...

re: Petroleum Engineer - lsumatt
The "big crew change" that they have been talking about for 15 years is supposedly around the corner. All of the baby boomers hired in the late 70s and early 80s are about to turn 65 and need replacements (maybe 2 for every 1), but I am skeptical. I think with the money they are making they won't al...

re: Petroleum Engineer - lsumatt
There are definitely big concerns and I am not sure there will be market demand for the number of petroleum engineers the universities will produce in the next 3-4 years - regardless of the price of oil. In the US, the # of PEs has doubled or tripled since 2007. The University of Houston didn't have...

re: 24-23 But Who Did He Beat? - lsumatt
I would be interested to know how many of the 23 losses we were down by more than a TD at the beginning of the 4th (I am guessing 10-15). Not that losing big is a good thing but it would further show that if the game is close, lsu probably wins it....

re: Does OM have any weaknesses that LSU can exploit? - lsumatt
[quote]Their defense is very very good, but makes a living off of turnovers...something LSU does not do.[/quote] This is why part of me thinks Miles' usual run, run, safe pass offense might be good this game. Avoid turnovers, keep the game low scoring and close, and let the crowd and our athletes...

re: LSU +3 vs. Ole Miss - lsumatt
[quote]Haha some of you really have no clue. Playing at home is not worth a whole touchdown. Jesus.[/quote] No, its worth about 3 points. So if Ole Miss were 15 point favorite at home, it would probably be 12 at a neutral site and about 9 on the road. Which is exactly what I said....

re: LSU +3 vs. Ole Miss - lsumatt
This is about what I expected. People on here were saying +8 to 10 which makes no sense. Tenn was +15 at Ole Miss, meaning they would be +8 to 10 at home. Obviously LSU was going to be viewed more favorably than Tenn by Vegas....

re: #1 State for NFL talent per capita - lsumatt
I can't believe the number of times people on this board people say Lsu hasn't won a title in 7 years. And if we had few players in the NFL that would be indicative of poor talent development right?...

re: The fake punt - lsumatt
I had this question last year when Bama did it to us... Is a fake punt (on say 4th and 3) easier to convert than just going for it even if the defense expects it? It seems like it could be, because the defense usually puts one player back to return even when they are in full safe punt formation s...
