    BTTF 2018: Draft Complete

    The 2017-18 NBA stats finally arrived yesterday, so I wouldn’t hold your breath.
  2. I know there are probably a lot of you who aren't excited about giving a dysfunctional website $10 so you can relive your awful draft from 13 months ago. But I had a really good draft, and I'm excited to beat the hell out of your terrible teams, so please check in and let's make this happen.

    A discussion on WAR

    MLB teams averaged 4.31 runs per game in 1991 and 4.92 in 1994, so that's a significant change to the replacement level they're trying to get above. Even without taking that into account, a .424 OBP is excellent.

    This is definitely the shark move. Starting from a too-slow corral I passed at least a thousand people and got passed maybe 10 times. At times I was looking for "lead blockers" who were also going fast and could kind of carve out paths through the masses for me to follow. I'm convinced enough people lied about their estimated times that it's not worth feeling bad over. If I do Vegas again I'm gonna claim 1:45.

    Green 8. When I signed up I wasn’t even sure if I’d be able to finish so I put down a really slow expected time. Apparently the overconfident way outnumber the modest because I passed a lot of blue, and I started about 15 minutes after the last wave of them.

    Did the Las Vegas HM today as well, my first one. Finished in 2:03:36. My main goal was just to finish and I didn’t have a real clear time in mind, but I definitely ran faster than expected. I got out fairly slow to be safe, then realized around the halfway mark I wasn’t tiring at all and started pushing the pace. Got a little carried away at the end and according to Strava ran mile 12 at an 8:48 clip, which caused me to run out of steam a bit down the stretch. Pacing is not something I’ve figured out at all - when I look at my watch I have no idea what it’s gonna tell me. More tempo runs next time probably, and maybe Michigan winter forcing me to inside to the treadmill won’t be so bad. I think I might have been physically capable of breaking 2 hours if I ran a smarter race, but for a first time I’m really happy with how it went. I’ll definitely do another and chase that 2 hour mark. Thanks to everyone in the thread. I don’t post a ton but I do read regularly and it’s uncanny how often I’ll have a question in my head and come in and see that exact topic being discussed. I’ve learned a ton here and a lot of you guys are pretty inspiring with the things you accomplish.

    Courtney Dauwalter post-race comments “I’m like really jumbled right now,” Dauwalter said by phone Tuesday morning. “I’m kind of confused on what day it is or what I’ve been doing for the past three days, but excited to have experienced the event. It’s really cool, the format is so interesting.”

    I think this is my favorite ultra, just because it doesn’t end until the participants decide it does. To win you have to make Courtney Dauwalter quit, and she’s continued running after going blind before.
  9. Has any team lost to Eastern Michigan and beat Ohio State before in the same season? I have no idea but I may waste a lot of time trying to answer that question tonight.
  10. The weirdest thing was that he was never really introduced or announced as GM. He just... didn't hire anyone. It seems pretty dysfunctional but there really wasn't much to do this offseason with no first-round pick or cap space, so I'm just gonna not worry about it and enjoy the mediocrity.
  11. Excited about the new season? I know I’m not. Projected lineup C Drummond PF Griffin SF You SG Me PG Reggie Jackson? :fingerscrossed: Jackson’s health probably the only thing that can hold this team back from fulfilling its potential of a .500 record and the 8th seed. Get your tickets now! Or 5 minutes before tip, they’ll still be available.
  12. Feels like this could be a fun quote to remember and take out of context in the future.

    BTTF 2018: Draft Complete

    They’re now owned by something called SportsHub which doesn’t seem to have any interest in updating the site. Our basketball version of this league never happened because they didn’t put in the 2017-18 rosters.
