    I agree with you, erosion of liberties starts from the top. The fish rots from the head.

    Timme will go undrafted because the NBA draft is based on player potential.

    For the same reason, Hickman and Sallis could go with Holmgren. They'll probably be told they'll have a higher draft...

    This was driving me nuts. Usually the first number in a completed major version would be 1.0 making last year's Corey Kispert "Kispert 1.0". Kispert in the NBA might be Kispert 1.5 or something like...

    Treating a 'probable case' and 'case' as the same thing makes sense because the stakes are high enough.

    Reporting them as the same thing ruins data sets and makes it hard to see what is going on...

    I'm not conflating it, the reporting is.

    A probable case is not a case but that distinction is not being made. Like I said, the signal to noise is terrible.

    Nope.

    Cases are defined by a set of criteria for a disease.

    Case =/= positive test =/= infected

    The signal to noise ratio on this is so bad you can't tell what's going on.

    There were some hidden stats.

    I think Fox said covering the next game that we missed the front end of 6 1+1s vs Alabama.

    If you count those as 2 missed FT that puts GU at 42% for the game (13...

    I'm not crowning Baylor. I don't think they as good as last year's team (not nearly the 3 point threat) but neither are we.

    If being "tougher" this year means

    - making free throws
