It's two days before NSD. Quit giving me percentages and just make predictions. I understand what writers are doing by saying FSU at 51% confidence but it annoys me. Jmo, ridiculous or do you agree.
99% chance fsufsu broke his promise and came back before NSD.
Lets just hope tonight starts the great Miami strikeout and meltdown.
We all knew that commitment was a crock of crap. I tried. I stayed off for 12 hours.
Sort of ridiculous if you're asking for opinions. If someone feels a school as 51% chance to sign a player then that is their prediction. If someone says it is 50/50 then I agree, get off the fence.
I agree. Its a cop out. It just gives that person an out in case they are wrong.
If someone gives a school 51% chance or higher on signing a recruit then that is their prediction.
If you ask for a prediction you get what you get. Josh gave you those razor thin %s, but he also said he thought FSU would land Thomas and Ramsay. What else do you want?
The Future is Now.
Haha. Just a school name. I'm not exactly upset here.
You quit as good as me, Mr. Commitment
So you prefer to look at things as black or white? I actually prefer understanding confidence levels that are built into the prediction rather than forcing a 100% prediction just so I can later call someone out (not saying you are doing this).
Agreed. Giving percentages gives me a rough estimate of how confident the guys are in that choice. 51% tells me that it's a slight lean and I shouldn't be surprised if it goes the other way. 70% and I would be pretty surprised (i.e., I'm counting that guy in the class).
Asking for no percentages is just asking for less information. You have the predictions, AND the confidence level.
