FWIW, I'm a Maryland fan, so this isn't really something for me ... but I thought it was an interesting idea, so I figured I'd share. I'll sum it up quickly - my idea is that you convince half the...

Is there any type of "percentage of total possible yards" statistic?

I figured this blog was probably a good location to search for an answer ... Is there anyone, be it Football Outsiders or someone else - that has created a "percentage of total possible yards"...

Mike Leach puts starters back in game to preserve shutout, curses at opposing coach

2

Apparently Leach wanted to preserve the shutout when his team was destroying Idaho, so he put the starting defense back into the game to prevent a score. The other coach was irked, let Leach know after the game, and Leach's response was "f%#$ you." Classy.

2013 Mountain West, meet the 2006 Missouri Valley

+

Interesting article from Patrick Stevens (a sportswriter in the Maryland/DC area) that compares the current Mountain West basketball league with the Missouri Valley Conference from 2006. Stevens is a former writer for the Washington (DC) Times (who never should have been let go).

Updates coming to SBNation blogs

Apparently they're making some changes to all of the SB Nation blogs, and the details are posted at the link. I like the changes they are planning - I think the site will work better. They're also asking for more feedback (if you have some) in the comments section of that blog post.

Whose schedule is more competitive for Boise State: Mountain West or Big East?

Baltimore Sun article discusses what decorating Turgeon has done with his office, in part to show off Maryland to recruits. Among other things, it includes a "Tradition of Greatness" display that shows renderings of Tom McMillen, Greivis Vasquez, Len Elmore, Juan Dixon, Len Bias, Joe Smith and John Lucas.
