re: Basketball Team All Time Line-up - lsumatt
Tyrus Thomas was second team SEC and you have him on the top 5. Glen Davis was Tyrus’ teammate and SEC POY but doesn’t make the backup squad. Makes sense....

re: Cobra kai season 4 theory - lsumatt
[quote] A better story line would have been Daniel was super arrogant and at the beginning of that movie gets his butt kicked by Barnes to lose championship. That means the rise of Cobra Kai. Daniel has to go back to training and being humbled but fears losing again to Barnes, not deathly afraid of...

re: Annual reminder that Mary Bailey is the greatest wife in history - lsumatt
The real victim in the movie is Mr. Welsh. He was probably justified in punching George for telling off his wife but will be the town villain for being the guy that beat up the drunk, depressed town hero. Plus, he will never be able to grab a martini after work for the rest of his life. ...

Help me find a tv series - lsumatt
Looking for a tv series for the wife and I that is a 1 hour dramedy type that doesn’t require a lot of thinking and low intensity. A few that we have seen the last few years that we liked (ranked in order): 1. Psych 2. Cobra Kai 3. Chuck 4. Ted Lasso 5. Monk 6. Suits 7. Blue Bloods 8. Roya...

re: 20 yrs ago tonight: Rohan to Royal in OT. LSU 38 Tennessee 31 - lsumatt
I believe to this day that the play that changed LSU football was 3rd and 22 on our own 5 yard line with 2 minutes remaining and a tie game. All signs pointed to a draw play, botched punt, and easy field goal by Tenn to end it. Instead Rohan hit Reed in the middle of the field for and gave us OT....

re: Daily COVID Updated as of 11/2/20 8:00 PM - lsumatt
I am not sure what to make of the data and relatively low cases the last two days. I thought we would get a data dump after the low case numbers from Labor Day. It’s good we are not but the testing is also relatively low. I find that odd given that colleges are testing like crazy. Also, hospitalizat...

Illinois dropped over 5000 cases on WOM today. I wonder if that is a data entry error, data dump, or a huge spike that we will see for a while....

Does anyone know what the Minnesota data error was? Surely they didn’t take, much less fail to report, 200k tests but that is the difference in total testing from last Friday. ...

re: Daily COVID Updated as of 11/2/20 8:00 PM - lsumatt
FYI - I heard that Florida would not do testing from like Thursday to Tuesday b/c of the hurricane. If so, I suggest just assuming 9500 Florida cases (or whatever the 7 day average is) for Florida those days and do something similar with testing numbers. That way it doesn't affect the trends....

I really like that plot. 1.add a color bar to indicate the scale of the colors 2. Add time on the x-axis 3. Consider normalizing each state by the population, or making a second plot with normalized numbers....

re: Daily COVID Updated as of 11/2/20 8:00 PM - lsumatt
I am not sure what to make of the flat or very slow decrease in number of cases. It is easy to attribute it to the fact we are testing 250K more people than a month ago and I hope that is what it is. However, the extra 250K may be Largely a pseudo-random sample of people with a small probability of ...

re: Daily COVID Updated as of 11/2/20 8:00 PM - lsumatt
I am getting annoyed with worldometers sight as sometimes numbers come out of nowhere and don’t make sense. The official deaths released today for Louisiana was 12 but worldometers has 72. The total deaths for Louisiana is also over 100 more than it should be....

re: Daily COVID Updated as of 11/2/20 8:00 PM - lsumatt
I think I figured it out. Looks like worldometers retroactively added ~400 deaths today for sometime in the past which bumped the cumulative number up. Chrome subtracts the listed cumulative yesterday from today’s listed cumulative and therefore the extra deaths. So today’s number should be 1218 or...

re: Daily COVID Updated as of 11/2/20 8:00 PM - lsumatt
There was definitely something weird with New York today. It was 130, then 0 then they added 172. But if you click on New York the county by county adds up to 260 at the top. But None of that explains the nearly 400 difference in Chromes spreadsheet. Does he enter numbers manually or pull automat...

Are we to assume that this 500 data dump is coming from those 1500ish deaths they found over the weekend in New York? If so I guess we can expect two more of these data dumps this week? Today’s numbers were looking great until then....

I have a suggestion for your table. Since daily changes are meaningless because of the poor reporting on weekends, I have started comparing to the week before on the same day. That’s related to the 7 day rolling average but maybe a column that shows the difference in fatalities each day compared to ...
