    Running back commodity fallacy

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 120: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion is surprised to receive support from an ally in the fight against the running-backs-are-commodities narrative-war of our time.


    It's en vogue right now to marginalize the value of the running back position and describe them as interchangeable and expendable commodities. 


    Dallas and Philadelphia have vastly different running back valuation philosophies.


    Just because two running backs scored the same number of fantasy points does not imply they are interchangeable. 


    In 2008, Jamaal Charles, Ray Rice, Chris Johnson, and Matt Forte were drafted after Rahshard Mendenhall, Felix Jones, Johnathan Stewart and Darren McFadden. 


    Most first-round bust running backs were injured early in their careers.


    Early round running backs are generally highly quality players than late-round and undrafted running backs with much higher success rates and are not interchangeable.


    Shane Vereen and LeGarrette Blount were uniquely productive role players and intergral parts of New England's Super Bowl victory.

    100,000-dollar bet on DeVante Parker

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 113: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion believes the idea that Jarvis Landry, a 5-11 wide receiver completely devoid of athleticism could be a productive outside receiver for years to come stretches to the outer bounds of plausibility. 


    If the Dolphins draft a WR, they should hedge their bets on Landry and target a prototypical flanker such as Dorial Green-Beckham or Jaelen Strong.


    It would be impossible to decide between Nelson Agholor and Tre McBride if losing the bet meant a lifetime of indentured servitude.  


    Some of the callenged faced when attempting to incorporate subjective metrics into a prosect evaluation methodology include: time contraints, stylistic bias, confirmation bias, and survivorship bias. 


    Don't worry, the NFL Draft tout machine will soon be inundating us with Rashard Higgins analysis.

    Two Greek Organizations Steal the Show at FMU’s 2015 Homecoming Night

    in Education

     By Davina Lewis, Jamari Leak, and Rashard Jones


     


    The ladies of Delta Sigma Theta and the gentlemen of Phi Beta Sigma emerged  as winners of the 2015 Greek Step Show and Concert competition after thrilling performances. The event, held at the university’s clock tower center, was the highlight of weeklong Homecoming activities that took place from February 8-15, 2015.


    The four-hour competition was attended by alumni, staff, students, and friends who filled all 400 seats on a chilly night. Food vendors provided burgers, hot dogs, fries, and most importantly hot chocolate to keep the crowd warm.


    The audience watched attentively as various Greek organizations took to the floor and stepped their best in line with the disc jockey’s musical mix. The groups were judged by several FMU Greek alumni. The two winning organizations not only earned bragging rights for the whole year but they also received $1,000 checks each and engraved trophies.


    R&B singer August Alsina closed the show with a 45-minute musical thriller as the crowd cheered and roared with enthusiasm. FMU student Khalinah Walker, summed up the event: “Even though I’m freezing out here I’m glad that I came tonight. The show gets better each year, I Love August Alsina and all the Greeks did a good job.”


    The staff members are already planning for next year’s show and students are anticipating the event as well to see  who will win the Greek Show and who will be the entertainer.

    Gospel Hip Hop Female Artist G.L.O . (God's Love Only)

    in Christianity

    San Antonio’s G.L.O which stands for Gods Love only, is a ground-breaking artist in the genre of Christian Rap, having received critical acclaim from some of Gospel’s most revered.


    G.L.O, first gained notoriety in 1998 when she became an accomplished writer with 250 songs to her credit. Despite her diverse collection of music, she noticed that none of her music glorified God. That all changed one fateful day when God had a Word for her in Bible Study, “You can’t have one foot in the world and one foot out.”  That was the breakthrough for G.L.O and she hasn’t looked back since.


    Her third CD “Breakthrough” captured critical attention from coast to coast, proving that people were indeed hungry for music that authentically glorified God.  G.L.O’s articulate and powerful method of rapping combined with her crystal-clear voice and prescient lyrics, deliver a message that is uncompromised and unrestrained. 


    G.L.O’s newest single Run takes us on a poetic journey of perseverance and determination. Based on Hebrews 12:1-2, “The scripture speaks to me to encourage someone else who is worn out and tired. Never throw in the towel.  We are called to run this race with endurance.” 


    Currently she has released her 4th Album "Fire"  based on 1 Peter 1:6-9 which reminds us that we will be tested by fire, its the purification process. " Its not only about how we come out but how we act as we go through. Her Album "Fire" is packed with an intense message that will leave the listener Equipped, Encouraged and Ignited for God.

    The St. Louis Wildcats - America's Favorite Team

    in Basketball

    Every once in a while, everything comes together and basketball perfection is attained. Sometimes, by the most unlikely of teams; the St. Louis Wildcats didn't even compete previously in AAU. They arrived with 6 players and a dream; they didn’t have a large crowed or entourage. They didn’t have a large budget, pancakes, hotdogs, and grilled cheese filled were their main staples for the week – until they were adopted by Boo Williams staff who introduced the group to Bojangles Chicken....What happened next?

    The Baseline: The L Word | Battlefield L.A. | Parsons-Harden Beef?|F.A.T. Report

    in Sports

    Cal Lee and Warren Shaw discussing the hot button topics of the NBA. This Week:


    Battlefield Los Angeles: Doc Rivers and Chris Paul make assertions to boycott playing next season for the Clippers if Donald Sterling is the owner. How serious a threat should the NBA consider taking this?


    Wiggins on Hold: Cavs sign their #1 Draft Pick and because of this deal, any attempts to try and trade him to Minnesota must wait 30 days. Could this play against the Cavs in their attempts to get Kevin Love?


    The L Word: Speaking of Kevin Love, as he continues to lobby for Cleveland, Minnesota is still fielding offers and the number of teams with interest to Love have increased since. While reports say Cavs offer the most attractive deal to Minne, is it the best deal for the Timberwolves?


    Great Scott Lakers Found a Coach: Byron Scott has been offered the Lakers Head Coaching Gig. Is this what the Lakers evisioned. Is he their long term or short term solution? Can we imagine this was how Kobe Bryant would finish his career with the state of the Lakers. We probe into the hire and potential impact 


    We breakdown a bevy of transaction in our coveted F.A.T Report especially the Celtics signing clandestant swingman Evan Turner to a multi-year deal. We also take a look at the Mavs who loudly reloading through Free Agency to become a legitimate threat in the West 


    In our segment of The Drop, seems like their is some legitimate beef between James Harden, and former teammate Chandler Parsons. We breakdown the magnitude of the beef and how this can heighten what can become an intense rivalry in the Lone Star State.


    We also discuss Team USA Basketball, some notable names not participating, and everyone's attention on one man's intention to participate. All this and a ton of topics to discuss in this week's episode of The Baseline.
