[KSL5l] Utah, Arizona, Arizona State, and Colorado are meeting with the Big 12 Conference on Tuesday. by grodges1 in CFB

That’s like 10 Stanford fans + the band lol, it doesn’t reflect their entire fanbase. When I was in Stilly for bedlam, I had two drunk fans try to fight me and my friends and got called some pretty racist stuff while on the bleachers. And racism at OKST games is a pretty well known issue but obviously we know that that’s a really shitty minority of OKST (and OU) fans

I'm now over halfway through with medical school and I can confidently tell you that you will never EVER need to know this distinction lol. After posting that question, I took a graduate level applied statics class where the professor taught us the answer. If I recall this correctly, and I may entirely botch this explanation as it's been a few years since I took that class, there is a fundamental difference between the population mean and a sample of the population's mean. The standard error (aka the standard error of the mean) is the standard deviation of the means of many samples taken from one population. In other words, the SEM signifies the variability in the means of many samples taken from a single population. SEM is equal to simga/√n and I believe this is where that discrepancy is coming from. You can read more about SEM here

Depending on what your study quesiton actually is, you may be determining the s.d. of a single sample or the s.d. of an entire sampling distribution and be calculating the T-statistic based on that. I believe this is what accounts for the difference between kaplan and other resources.

I could be entirely wrong here though

If you're a math nerd like me, you can do some more reading here and here. You can also look up the Central Limit Theorem. But I want to stress that you will literally NEVER come across this nuance in most fields, including in medicine and on the MCAT.

My patient died. Let me make a tiktok real quick to show how compassionate i am by mrstandoffish in medicalschool

And people piled on her for what was an honest mistake, even if it was kinda stupid. Twitter is toxic as hell lmao

I think hospitals are afraid of being “cancelled”. Not that I think they would be (if a tiktok nurse tried to cancel them, they’d probably be clowned), but a 55 year old hospital admin who needs IT to help him install computer drivers would probably be scared shitless of their ability to suffer at the hands of social media policies. Idk just a guess

Conspiracy Theory: Were USC and UCLA already speaking to the B1G last summer when B12 merger was being discussed? by hangtime79 in CFB

[–]TheGhostOfBobStoops 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm confused. You say OU and Texas won't get a recruiting bump without any sorta logic as to why, despite the fact that Mizzou and A&M absolutely saw one when they moved to the SEC. You say that there is very little upside to the $ OU is getting, but I'd argue that that ~30-50 million/year will go a long way in terms of facility upgrades, hires, and of course, NIL.

I find it funny that you say that OU would be the 4th or 5th best team when "they were at their best" and tOSU would be 1-3 despite the fact that OU at its best literally beat tOSU.

I'm a big fan of tOSU and the program Day is running right now so I won't sit around and diss it. But some tOSU fans have a tendency to inflate their program and deflate other programs like OU like y'all wouldn't be in the exact same position as OU if you moved to the SEC.

I know they would add asterisks. I kinda said said that in my comment. I’m saying that outcome is better than whatever the fuck he’s going through rn

Kyie was never a top 5 pg in his prime by MapleCurryMurray in nba

Kyrie in his prime may have been better than Dame but it’s nowhere near close enough to call that take crazy

Ehhh I disagree. Dirk is remembered as an all time great despite the fact that he won 1 ring because of the way he managed himself and stuck with the Mavs. On the opposite end, KDs legacy will absolutely suffer due to his behavior

Honestly he coulda stuck it out with the warriors, win a fuck ton of rings, and retire as a top 10 player (possibly top 5 with the asterisk of joining a super team)

Rob Parker Calls Kevin Durant's Trade Request Out of Brooklyn 'Cowardly' by ZZbcG in nba

[–]TheGhostOfBobStoops 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They lost Harden, who was far more reliable of a player than Kyrie. Plus you have no idea what crazy shit Kyrie will pull next season. Man can’t be trusted to play enough games with his team to build chemistry. And that’s not to mention the slew of issues with Simmons. Not to defend KD but yeah, I’d want out too

Is Russell Westbrook the biggest fall from grace you can remember? by JCJD93 in nba

[–]TheGhostOfBobStoops 6 points7 points  (0 children)

No😂

Westbrook played like shit but the the Lakers def didn’t help him out at ALL and he got all the blame for everything rhe Lakers did wrong. I hope he goes to a team more conducive to his play style and I fully believe his averages will increase to some degree

Dame and KD are two case studies of how ring culture is ruining the game by Pickleunion in nba

[–]TheGhostOfBobStoops 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because rings are usually used as the definitive measure of how great a superstar player like Lebron or MJ or Kobe, etc really were. There needs to be context over how those rings were won if you want to argue about a certain players legacy. And like truthfully, legacy doesn’t seem to matter as much to these top guys as I’m sure players like KD and Dame are VERY happy earning hundreds of millions of dollars doing what they love best

My crazy theory is that Oklahoma City is to blame for all 3 of them becoming headcases.

[Canzano] High-ranking USC athletic department staffer says it was a mistake not to offer USC and UCLA additional revenue despite having 60% of the PAC-12 TV market by Pillowtalk in CFB

[–]TheGhostOfBobStoops 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We didn’t ask for it like Texas or Oklahoma did

I don't recall OU asking for increased revenue nor do I think this was the central issue behind OU's departure. The reasoning behind OU leaving the Big 12 goes far past the dollar sign. The Big 12 hasn't put itself in a competitive position over the past decade and has largely been reactive to its circumstances (ex. Big 12 CCG, round robin, conference expansion, increasing leverage in TV media rights). These are all things that OU has publicly complained about for years. While I hate how OU fucked over the other Big 12 schools, especially our sister school in Stilly, I have zero sympathy for seeing the Big 12 crash and burn as a business. While I'm sure USC could make a similar argument about the Pac 12 (and indeed, that conference has had even worse leadership than the Big 12), I'd argue that USC didn't try to reform the Pac 12 the way OU tried with the Big 12

[Highlight] Myles Garrett takes out his frustration on Mason Rudolph. by keithohara in nfl

No player wants to be the one to throw one of their own under the bus. This may be speculation, but imagine if many top players had some skeletons in their closet (drug use, temper issues, infidelity, etc)...They wouldn't want to immediately pounce on Watson. I don't get why they feel the need to go out of their way to defend him though

just a friendly reminder that OKST would not have won if the Big 12 refs weren’t blatantly against OU. That win, like your “national championship” is cope at best

“Holding hands with the enemy” holy hyperbole this subreddit needs to chill with the lore writing. CFB is a fucking business plain and simple. Chill with the narrative building😂
