re: Season Record Prediction Using Mathematical Analysis of Point Spreads 2015 - TheMuffinMan
Dude he's not calculating a probability, he's calculating an expected value. The formula for that is E(X)=sum[p(x)*x] with each x being a trial. If we want the expected value of wins in 12 trials and have the associated probability of winning for each, then this equation states that we multiply th...

re: Season Record Prediction Using Mathematical Analysis of Point Spreads 2015 - TheMuffinMan
He never said the games weren't independent events. Do you NOT think that having a 99 percent chance to win a game versus a 51 percent chance to win a game matters in terms of most likely win total? You're falling victim to the fallacy he described with the 52% coin where you assign each flip more l...

Recruiting Tracker error - TheMuffinMan
Not sure if this should go here or the RB, but Jakori Savage is listed as being from Alaska in the Recruiting Tracker. While that would be cool, he's from Alabama. Just a heads up; obviously not a huge deal. :cheers:...

re: Alex Lange is pretty damn good - TheMuffinMan
How do these contact rate graphs work? Doesn't seem like that entire cloud of pitch locations would fall between 50-100% contact rate. How has that much of the strike zone resulted in a 95-100% contact rate? And how does lefty vs righty factor in? I'm assuming contact rate is percentage of swing...

re: Basketball foul: touching the hand after the shot is in the air - TheMuffinMan
Right, and "not following through" is what is making Lester's brain implode because he's heard following through is important for x y and z his whole life. But "not following through" is a crime the shooter commits when he does it to himself, which would affect the shot because it affects his appli...

re: Basketball foul: touching the hand after the shot is in the air - TheMuffinMan
Following through is important because it creates a reference start and end point to the shot that is repeatable and can be ingrained as habit. Yes the motion of flicking the wrist forward puts rotation on the ball, and consistently following through promotes accuracy by standardizing the shot so t...

re: OK, Grammar Nazis. Need your help - TheMuffinMan
You would say "This week's goal is to sell x units." It's the goal for that week, it's not the standard concept of ownership but it's still an application of the possessive. You could also say "Our goal for this week" and that would be fine too, but New Year's resolutions is valid and it is certainl...

[quote] Gotta move the check. [/quote] Think that kinda destroys the concept of the challenge. It's a blocking drill, not a "pick your fastest friend and let him run away from jj for seven seconds".

re: Blocking JJ Watt for $1,000,000 Hypothetical - TheMuffinMan
I think like 6 or 7 200 pound friends could do it. Two to hit him at the very beginning and then retreat, then the next three individually cut him in succession and the two from the beginning have filed back with the remaining two guys to make a four man pancake squad ready to pounce if any of the t...

Well shit, that's my bad :lol: Seemed like a plausible claim just one that was irrelevant to how fun his music was. Now how in the hell do you figure that the establishments with dancing stages and high-energy atnospheres play music that "fades into the background"? There are countless people s...
