    I was actually debating whether to put a comma there. I guess I lost the debate.

    Seems to me like the cream uniforms with script huskers get worn more often than the base home unis.

  6. Came across this discussion of recruiting ranking vs actual performance on Reddit today, kind of interesting (I posted the imgur content below) Trying to answer the question: If the order of finish of the Big Ten were determined strictly by recruiting rankings." Average team "talent" rating. How each team performs during the season relative to their talent rank within the conference. Performance determined by place in final conference standings Graphs displaying each teams place in the conference standings versus their talent ranking within the conference. Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State. Graphs displaying each teams place in the conference standings versus their talent ranking within the conference. Purdue, Minnesota, Penn State, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Nebraska Graphs displaying each teams place in the conference standings versus their talent ranking within the conference. Rutgers, Maryland

    I live just a few blocks away from Sprint Center; if we make the KC Regional Finals I may end up needing a liver transplant... (judges, can I get a ruling on my semicolon usage?)

    I think the bar for Miles to keep his job after this year has been set. S16 or GTFO!

    This isn't confusing at all: (Different guy altogether, different class, same name)
  14. The podcast episode @thattimeofyearchanges posted earlier talks about Roby being a lottery guy, potential top 10 draft pick:

  16. While the data may be slightly flawed, I believe the general trends may be pretty accurate. Couple of things that stood out to me right away by looking at the (admittedly small sample size of ) data are: 1). Coach Miles' results tend to consistently outperform his recruiting performance and 2). Coach Miles' recruiting seems to be on an upward trajectory
  17. One glaring error I noticed right away though is he had Michigan finishing 2nd last year and us 5th. So I can't speak for the overall veracity of the charts. They're fun to look at nonetheless.
  18. ...and here is the discussion on Illinois Loyalty: https://www.illinoisloyalty.com/Forum/threads/recruiting-talent-vs-conference-standings.24569/
  19. So I've been a subscriber to ESPN+ since it's inception last spring. For me it's been worth every penny of the $4.99 a month cost, and one of the things I have access to as a subscriber is the exclusive 30 for 30 episode they have "Last Days of Knight". Last night I finally got around to watching it. Excellent, as are all the other 30 for 30's, I wondered if any other HHC'ers have seen this episode? If so, what did you think? http://www.espn.com/30for30/film?page=LastDaysofKnight
