Games in Hand and the Conjunction Fallacy

Some good ol' logic math from Sounder at Heart reader Tohoya

Standings based on expected performance for home and away teams

WJMorris3 over on reddit put together this table that I found rather interesting. He assumed a team should win their home games and draw their road games, set that as "par" for the team, and figures out how far off the mark each team is. It's not perfect, since the average PPG for home teams is something like 1.5 as opposed to 3, but it's still an interesting infographic. Some good news and bad news: the Sounders are 4th in the West on based on this metric, but Portland is also in the lead in the SS race.

In light of the injuries, what is a reasonable expectation for this year?

I came into this season with some high hopes for this Seattle squad.  While we may have bummed out of the playoffs in a disappointing manner, we also absolutely killed the second half of the...

A more in-depth look at the standings

The standings, as they're published, often don't say as much as I would like them to.  Too often important differences in current performance are obscured by differences in number of games played,...

The acceptance letter is in my hand, the deposit in the mail: I'm going to be a Longhorn

Long story short: UT's law program is awesome and comparatively very cheap, so I'll start attending the school in the fall.  And I have no idea how to balance loyalty to the school with my...

Can anyone suggest any decent college football podcasts?

I haven't found one to listen to consistently (other than the Fastest 40 Minutes in Podcasting!), so I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions.

Mizzou might not need another undefeated to lose to make the championship game

Here's the path:   1.) Auburn becomes the clear number one in the human polls after wins over Alabama in the Iron Bowl and South Carolina in the SECCG.  If the number two in the human polls isn't...

We're number 10, according to Dr. Saturday

Admittedly, that's because his polls are not power rankings but only, and Mizzou was one of the few teams to beat someone from a big 6 conference in the first week. ...

California seas have turned rave green, apparently because of a proliferation of algae. I prefer to think of it as an omen, though. Hear that, Los Angeles and San Jose? God himself is on the Sounders' side now! From here: http://io9.com/5611762/why-are-the-southern-california-seas-turning-bright-green

DC United rivalry?

Okay, so I admit it, I'm a World Cup bandwaggoner.  The most recent magical run and the buzz around the Sounders got me into American soccer again, this time I hope for good.
