This article always makes me think of a lot of you guys, who think the stats you post are 100 percent conclusive evidence/strong points. Take the time to read the intro, as that is what I’m referring to not the football numbers. Stats can be used/manipulated to argue almost anything, depending on your agenda and which ones you want to use or ignore. It’s about being able to understand the context of the stats you are seeing, and interpreting what they are really saying.

I have a masters degree in applied behavior analysis. The entire grad track is basically centered around taking valid data, knowing how to interpret it, and how to derive an accurate picture of it and identifying trends. Most of you who try to be smarter than everyone because of the numbers you use as undeniable evidence are way, way, worse at these things than you realize, and would be laughed at in any intelligent conversation regarding interpreting and understanding data/statistics.


that's not a real degree.

Stats can be manipulated... especially if you are media with no integrity. That's the main conclusion from that link.

Cade Cunningham visiting Oklahoma State this week. Not sure if we have any cowboy fans here but I'd be so hype if he committed.

Ok state has landed the number one recruit in the country before with Gerald Green.. Unfortunately he went pro and never played for Osu.

If Ed Orgeron ever gets fired from LSU he would be a great voice for a cajun Cookie Monster.
