  1. How frequently are top 5 teams underdogs against unranked teams? Again, this line seemed weird from the get go. Wisconsin seems overrated, but Marquette looked terrible vs OK St.
  2. @The Wiz any thoughts on the WIsconsin - Marquette line? Started at WI -3.5 and is moving, but that still seems like a steal for the #4 team in the country... what are the voters missing that the bookies are seeing here?
  3. 2008. Suppose it’s not that recent lol, I must be getting old.
  4. The forward pass game was against Carroll College (Waukesha, WI) - my parents both went there! Also, it recently changed names to Carroll University.
  5. We have two players that I assume will make every shot they take. A pretty fun change of pace from the Crews years. Perkins and Jimerson can score on any given possession, while Goodwin and French turn broken plays and missed shots into high percentage chances. And it’s not like the other guys are scrubs, everyone else can get 10pts without it being surprising. We have balanced, deep scoring for the first time since Cody and Kwamain graduated (and neither of them were paragons of efficiency).
  6. You said, "Doesn't seem she or the other members of the House felt wearing a mask was important until just a couple of days ago." She had clearly felt it was important enough to do so herself and also put some level of policy in place to get others to do the same, several months ago. For most, that was sufficient. Recently, she decided to up that to a full blown requirement due to the discourtesy (and also illness) of several members. She has taken it seriously for quite some time and then chose to take it even more seriously in response to recent events. I just don't see how one can
  7. I read a couple months back that many hospitals don’t report new info on Sundays (some don’t on Saturday either?), so when you look at daily graphs, you’ll get these weird up and down spikes. Smoothed graphs or ones that bin longer timeframes take care of this issue, but aren’t always ideal for other reasons.
  8. It is often the closest relative that we test medicine on prior to human trials. They’re relatively easy to breed and keep in captivity, and are the lab rat of primate medical research/testing. But yeah, the two species within the genus Pan (Chimpanzees and Bonobos) are our closest extant relatives.
  9. Just a quick note, rhesus macaques are most definitely not our closest relative... this is still a decidedly positive development, however!
  10. There's no rule against being oversubscribed, and I could imagine a player has told the staff they plan on leaving but hasn't made it official yet. Especially if the outgoing player is relying on the school for resources at this point... that said, this definitely doesn't feel like good news for us.
  11. I really like that he finishes well with those left handed hooks in the middle of the lane. Has prefers the other block and going into the middle with his right, so hopefully that makes it a bit easier for them to share the floor! Love having three bigs who can score 1v1 in the post, teams won’t get a break with these three in the rotation.
  12. So you’re quarantining the coronavirus (discussion) Nice.
  13. In the US, the high end of the range for annual flu deaths is 61,000. The low end for annual flu infections is 9,300,000. Therefore, the most lethal hypothetical flu would have a death rate of 0.6%. The death rate of Covid-19 is 2-4 times that. Plus the typical lethality of the flu is closer to 0.1% anyway. And Covid-19 has a longer incubation period, which is at least part of the reason it appears to be more contagious. It’s not just the flu.
