Is anybody any good?

After Week One it’s still hard to say. Stanford couldn’t contain an FCS team for the first half. San Jose State needed the last few minutes to beat their FCS team. San Diego State lost as home favorites. So maybe not those guys. But somebody’s got to win this thing. Let’s take a look at… Continue reading Is anybody any good?

2022 preview

I’ve already run the 2022 schedule once so I won’t go through it all again but I need an excuse to show Midjourney’s interpretation of an Aztec triumph: This is the “stock” predictor: Monte Carlo [Elo Predictor] Simulation: UCLA 4978 [49%] Fresno State 2688 [26%] California 855 [8%] San Diego State 780 [7%] USC 596… Continue reading 2022 preview

The 1940s

(Here is Wilner’s aftermath column.) What does it mean for the Mythical California Cup? As Wilner says, “The California Four,… Continue reading Realignment

David Stern part 4: The DelCo files and the plane ticket scandal

Somewhere at the intersection of Pac-12 sports and David Stern is this particular forgotten 2013 scandal: Ed Rush forced to resign after bounty comments. Ed Rush was the head of basketball officiating for the Pac-12. Before a game he told a group of officials that he was putting a bounty out to reward whomever would… Continue reading David Stern part 4: The DelCo files and the plane ticket scandal

github actions

After getting a very basic docker container up and running it occurred to me, a lazy person, that there is probably some developer Saas out there that can take containers and regression test them against an expected output I provide.
