Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

As I sat inside Lucas Oil Stadium, I started to feel that I noticed a trend in Iowa's offensive playcalling tendencies. Decided today to take some time to research ... and folks, did I stumble across something.

Come along for the ride. #Hawkeyes
We all want variety in playcalling. I think that's a shared desire among every fan of every team. Iowa tries to vary itself. It tries to break a "they want to establish the run on first down" tendency that's stuck through Ferentz's tenure - and it's worked a ton - but they try.
Iowa has thrown the ball 127 times on first down, more than second (123), third (118) and fourth (6). They're good there. They're trying to keep opponents guessing. Don't have the numbers in front of me (that'd take more research), but I'd guess ~70% of the 127 are playaction.

(THREAD) Good evening and welcome to this week’s #IowaSim21, the (unofficially) official weekly Iowa football simulation, as we get set for the virtual Big Ten Championship.

We’re about 45 minutes from kickoff.
Hope you enjoy. #Hawkeyes Image
The simulation has correctly predicted the winner in 9 of 11 Iowa games this season, absent for Purdue week, while it has correctly picked the winner in 84 of 103 games since starting in 2013. #IowaSim21
Here come the Hawkeyes! #IowaSim21

Alright #CFBPlayoff viewers. Lets go through this week's poll. Once again, it was, as it always has been, predictable. The model was off an average of 1 spot per team for the entire Top 25 poll this week. So let's take a look at some resumes shall we? #CFB 🧵
If you took a peak at this projection yesterday, you were prepared for alot of what you saw last night. The resumes are all laid out very similarly to the way the Playoff Committee views them. #ThereIsNoEyeTest
25 #HailState 6-4
SOS: 29, QW: 4, T25W: 2, GC: 3.3

Despite the horrible game control at 3.3, MSU snuck its way into the poll. They modeled at 26 so this isn't all that surprising. They are riding their good SOS, 4 QWs, and 2 T25Ws at this point. No surprise.

Proud to announce our new partnership with the head coaches for @CycloneFB @HawkeyeFootball @UNIFootball @DrakeBulldogsFB. Each coach has taped video messages encouraging Iowans to #RegisterToVote and #BeAVoter. Digital ads will also share the message ahead of the 2020 election. Image
"I urge all Iowans to do their part on November 3rd and get out and vote. Whether it’s in person or via an absentee ballot, I hope we all exercise this right that can make a positive impact within our communities.” – Cyclone Football Coach Matt Campbell #Cyclones #BeAVoter
"There is no better way to engage with your community than by getting involved in the electoral process. Whether you participate in person or via absentee ballot, make a positive impact by registering to vote today.” – Iowa Hawkeye Football Coach Kirk Ferentz #Hawkeyes #BeAVoter

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.
