  1. I would say if you got to the level of a professional body builder or Olympic weightlifter. Even athletes from other sports do well at golf. I would say just being in athletic shape is good for golf. I would add in compound movements to help develop the muscles around the joints. I think those are the areas that take the most stress in golf.
  2. I recommend doing full body workouts. Maybe some extra emphasis on lower back, glutes, hips, abdominal, and thighs. If you don't work out often, then just doing an entry level program would be good.

    Comparing OSU versus Clemson Roster (247 Recruit Ratings) Biggest Matchups 1. Clemson's WR versus OSU's DB/S 2. OSU's DE versus Clemson's OL Maybe an unrecognized advantage, OSU's backups are really really good. There looks to be a step down in talent in Clemson's backups.
  4. I haven't read any of them past the first one. I love the first Dune novel. So good.

    Fivethirtyeight did an article on when the Dolphins sent 8 man pressure. The Dolphins Threw Eight Players Into A Blitz. Were They Trying To Lose? | FiveThirtyEight Some commentators immediately accused the Dolphins coaches of being complicit in the tank. It looks like 5 man pressure is the optimal amount. I think that makes sense. You can disguise 5 man pressure, and run a lot of different blitz packages. Also, most teams protect with 5 or 6 man fronts. So, its the best chance to get a couple one v one matchups at against the O-line.
  6. If they are talking about NSA type crap (no warrants), then the government can piss off. I would have to research more about regulations that required warrants.

    Time to nerd out, Offensive Efficiency for 3rd and 4th down for different types of base defenses. Man, that strange 2-4-5 defense does pretty well. Maybe when it comes to 3rd and long that you should switch out for pure speed. Two down lineman, 4 linebackers and 5 DB's. Looks like the base 4-3-4 isn't the best of the more tradition base defenses (4-3-4, 4-2-5, or the 3-4-4).

    Also, I just heard that no #1 team has won the NC in the playoff era... Hmm.. Maybe bad luck for LSU 😉

    Looking at the LSU versus OU game. Looking at this a bit more, I think I would put it this way. OU has a much more potent Offense. They run the ball better than LSU and Pass the ball equally as well. I think LSU uses the short passing game a bit more in their offense, but OU's rating is just behind LSU and they push the ball more downfield (higher yards per attempt). LSU does have the better defense by a good margin. LSU Ranked 27th in Rush per Attempt versus OU at 56th. LSU Ranked 10th in passer rating defense versus OU at 48th. The biggest issue would be LSU's game against Mississippi. OU likes to run the ball at 60% of the time. LSU gave up 402 yards rushing to Ole Miss. Ole Miss. QB ran for over 200 yards. Jalen Hurts leads OU in rushing at 1255 yards. You throw in a bit of that running game plan and that OU passes the ball really well. I think the stats say something like 37-31 LSU... I'll go with the upset, OU 42 LSU 38
  10. Oh, because when I was watching a commentary talk about this he went on about how intent.
  11. To me this is were intent needs to be taken out of golf. I can understand if you lay the clubface open, you maybe lose reference to the bottom of the club. I think I would have some pattern recognition and realize that the sand behind the ball has changed. I mean, it would go from a crater looking lie to having a grove made behind the ball. Maybe he didn't notice, but still, it really improved his lie. In the end, he should have been more careful. He's played for years knowing you can't touch sand. I would think that habit would make him just not come close to the sand.

    OSU's turnover cost them about 9 points in terms of value. I suspect that high success rate for Q2 (52% for Wisconsin) came from the last drive in the half. Something like 3 or 4 plays in under 1 minute, going like 70 yards. I wonder how the game would be if OSU got a field goal instead of a turnover, and just tackled Taylor on the first run of that last drive of the half. Man, look at the halftime adjustment for OSU on Wisconsins success rate, yikes!!!

    I agree.. OSU can not grant Clemson a 21 point lead. Though, I think OSU is equipped to make it close if they do. The number of times they go on a 21 point streak in a short amount of time is still amazing to me. It's been like clockwork. OSU feels out what the other team does for about 3 drives and then just steps on the gas on offense and defense. I am not sure that I would take the Wisconsin game as what this team is though. You have a team motivated for revenge, they worked on all the deficiencies that Illinois and OSU exposed on them, and they threw the kitchen sink at OSU. You have OSU's #1 DB go out and things start to get exposed a bit. Who would have thought that Wisconsin's QB would pull the ball and run it. Great adjustment there for Wisconsin. It gave them a lead at the half, but then OSU held them to 80 yards for the rest of the game (excluding the last drive in garbage time) Still, OSU needs to match Clemson drive for drive if they come firing right out of the gate. Kinda like how OSU kept up with Michigan and pulled away.

    Lets go back to 2016, OSU versus Clemson, and why this is a different OSU team. OSU Offense 2016 versus 2019 Passer Rating: 44th versus 5th Passing Yards Avg: 87th versus 10th Rushing Average: 17th versus 6th OSU Defense 2016 versus 2019 Rushing Average: 19th versus 6th Passing Average: 1st versus 1st Passer Rating: 2nd versus 3rd The biggest issue with the 2016 team was an average passing attack with a vanilla inside zone read scheme (Urban's Base Run Plays). The issue came against AP Ranked teams in 2016. OSU's QB rating dropped from 147 to 125. The average dropped from 7.5 to 6.1. OSU could not push the ball down field. Specifically, against top defenses in 2016 the passer rating was sub 100. Against a Clemson team, who didn't have to worry about the top of the defense getting taken off, they could condense the field. Basically OSU was playing in the redzone the entire length of the field. Compare this to 2019, against ranked AP teams, the rating did drop, but its still at 177. OSU's average yards didn't drop, they are pushing the ball down the field very efficiently. If you look at the top defenses they have played this year, the passer rating was above 170 three times and still above 147 the other two times. This passing game, at it's worse, is as good or just slightly better (since the average is higher) than the 2016 OSU team. I will still claim that the OSU defense in that 2016 game balled out. They held Clemson to 75% under their normal scoring potential (points per play). If you consider that Clemson ran 85 plays to OSU's 56 plays, the score should have been in the mid 40's. I go back to my previous post, in terms of getting sacks. That 2016 Clemson team didn't need to use a linebacker to get sacks or tackle for loss. They had three DL who had more than 6 sacks. The top two in tackle for loss were DL. Compared to the 2019 Clemson team, their primary sack guy is a linebacker. They have no DL guys with above 6 sacks this season. Kinda why I don't foresee a repeat of the 2016 game. They are completely different teams. You have a current OSU team who passes the ball WAY better than the 2016 team. They can stretch the field extremely well. This current Clemson team don't have three world beaters on the D-Line like that 2016 team.

    Bill Connelly's SP+ is good at predicting against the spread. He's around 55% correct against the spread. Which is a pretty good house edge 😉 . He just studied what typically wins games and collects the data and comes up with a predictive measure of a teams ability against an average team (SP+ Rankings). Then, he uses that to compare match-ups.

    The creator of SP+ will disagree with you. It's pretty good at predicting games against the spread. So, advanced stats can have some predictive uses. Because the stats show Clemson as the more complete team. SP+ Rankings Clemson: 6th ranked Offense, 3rd Ranked Defense OU: 2nd ranked Offense, 36th Ranked Defense The problem is, the higher ups at Michigan don't want him to leave. I heard there was a source saying that since Harbaugh brings the school a lot of money they don't care about the results versus OSU. I will take Alabama 35 Michigan 24

    The OSU versus Clemson matchup, OSU tries to run the ball more often than Clemson (63% to 53%). OSU's passing game is more efficient and explosive than Clemson's. OSU has a passer rating of 188 to Clemson's 163. OSU has a passing average of 9.3 to 8.7. Clemson has the best rushing average in the nation at 6.46 to Ohio State's 5.67. These teams are very similar in yards per play on offense and defense, CLEMSON Offense Defense Passing 8.70 5.30 Rushing 6.46 2.97 Ohio State Offense Defense Passing 9.30 5.30 Rushing 5.67 2.82 What if you average the defense versus offense of the yards per play. You have something like, Clemson gaining 419 yards to OSU gaining 412 yards. At these yardages, it will be a very tight game. Probably something in the low 30's. Field position could be a big deal in this game. 10 yards of field position advantage could add an additional 120 yards. I was curious if Clemson gets pressure with their DL versus their LB or DB's. 50% of their sacks come from their DL and 37% comes from their LB. Versus 70% of the sacks come from OSU's DL versus 22% from their LB. This could be a big deal since Clemson likes to throw the ball more often than OSU. Here is an issue for Clemson, they are ranked 103rd in Special Teams. Their field goal kicker is 66% on the season. OSU is ranked in the top 20 in special teams. I think that OSU will be able to stall Clemson's offense more then they can our offense. The reason being, I think Clemson will have to get to the QB by blitzing their LB's. Day is really good at exploiting defenses that need to get pressure with more than 4 players. OSU's defensive concept is to force teams to go on long drives with a DL that can get to the QB and cause TFL. I am not sure how often Clemson gets out of a 5 man protection for the QB, but Chase Young has proven you can not block him 1v1. He had zero sacks that last two games because the teams have put three guys on him. Will Clemson take away a WR to bring in an extra TE or OL to help out? I will take OSU in a close game 34 to 31.

    On a side note, I’m claiming OSU will have partial the NC if LSU wins. We did give them their QB... 😉

    I knew that year OSU was going to have trouble. Their passing game and spotty O-line play was a horrible match up against Clemson. This year I don’t see that issue. That’s because Clemson has the 2nd best margin of victory in the country. They have the dominant stats going on.

    NCAA Football 2019

    Umm.... OSU has better recruits than Clemson over the past 4 years... It’s actually by a big margin when looking at the best recruiting. Their style of play isn’t what scares me. It would be OU’s offense with their RPO’s and highly Mobile QB. I just think that Clemson’s A game would just be a fricken crazy dog fight. Also, Sweeney is just a great big game coach.

    Why did yo draw that conclusion. Absolutely LSU's win over Georgia was more impressive than OSU's win over Wisconsin. Since you already want to disregard stats, since you can't stand them, then there is no point in showing you that the margin of victory for OSU over their 5 top 25 wins is significantly more than LSU's over their top 25 wins. Just a fact. You don't know that. Do you have a crystal ball. Also, you can't use hindsight to validate your claim that has no evidence to support it. If you consider just wins, sure. If you consider margin of victory, then OSU was more dominant. I'd go with Georgia by 5 points on a neutral field. Georgia is a 5-10th ranked team. Wisconsin is a 10-15th ranked team. That's about 3-6 points. Then they dominated for the remainder of the game. That is also important. I'm not claiming that OSU would have the same amount of dominance in the SEC as they would in the B10. They would have just as good as shot at being undefeated as LSU has. If you go down LSU's schedule, the only team who would give OSU a game for 4 quarters is Alabama. I am sure that LSU would be undefeated against OSU's schedule. No, I am very realistic about where OSU is at in the grand scheme of things. I am not claiming they are worlds better than LSU. On a neutral field I think it would be OSU by 3 points. Vegas might make it 4-6 points. Unless you have a way to quantify the definition of lesser and compare it to how well OSU has performed then the claim that its like playing against middle schoolers is a bit of an outrageous claim.

    Just saying... I think beating 5 teams in the top 20% of college football is pretty good. Also, Bill Connelly made a good point. What benefit did Oregon get by getting beat by Auburn early in the season? What if they played someone easier and won. They would have a good claim to be the #4 team over OU.
