    Hang in there, the holiday season can be very stressful. Maybe try counting every other one.

    Yes, it runs mostly off of strong winds from the Pacific.

    I live about 30 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico which is why I haven't been able to start it.

    Did "tooter" have a different definition back then?

    I'm surprised it lasted 60yrs in La climate. Must have been an indoor car.

    The front floor pans are rusted through in some spots but everything from basically back of the front seat is still solid.

    The car still has the original inline-6 engine, all the trim pieces, and even the original radio and A/C.

    What it doesn't have is any of the seats or carpeting, the steering wheel is a bit busted up, the gas pedal broke off, and the top of the dash is cracking really bad.

    I only paid a thousand dollars for it though.

    We had an old Rambler in the 1960s. The holes in the floor let us watch the road move beneath us back then. Maybe half the width of a pea, like screw holes.

    That's quite practical. That way, when you spill your drink, you won't have to worry about soaking it up later. Also, to clean the car out afterwards, you can just use a hose.

    Well Jayden Daniels won the Heisman and Malik Nabers got screwed out of the Biletnikoff.

    Re: Post Race!

    To be honest, I would have understood it if Daniels didn't win the Heisman. The points "for" was that statistically he was the best. The only game he struggled in was Florida State and he was doing really well in the Alabama game before a targeting penalty that wasn't called knocked him out. The points "against" was that he was part of a 3 loss team whereas Pennix put up great numbers and his team is undefeated.

    Re: Post Race!

    But Malik Nabers getting screwed out of the Biletnikoff has everything to do with Marvin Harrison Jr.'s name. When you compare the two, the only thing that Harrison Jr. has close to Nabers is the touchdowns (they're tied at 14) and yards per reception (Harrison Jr has 18.1 vs Nabers' 18.0), everything else Nabers blew him away.

    I think the biggest stat (outside of total yards) is the efficiency. Nabers had a 69.4% completion rate compared with Harrison Jr.'s 58.77%.

    Re: Post Race!

    Another thing to look at is the team effort.

    At LSU, these are the top 3 receiver's stats:
    1. Malik Nabers: 86 receptions for 1546 yards
    2. Brian Thomas Jr: 60 receptions for 1079 yards
    3. Kyren Lacy: 24 receptions for 463 yards


    At Ohio State, these are the top 3 receiver's stats:
    1. Marvin Harrison Jr: 67 receptions for 1211 yards
    2. Cade Stover (TE): 41 receptions for 576 yards
    3. Emeka Egbuka: 35 receptions for 452 yards


    So not only does Nabers have more yards than Harrison Jr but Brian Thomas Jr is only 132 yards and 6 receptions away from Marvin Harrison Jr. Compare that to Ohio State's next best receiver being a tight end who only has 113 yards over LSU's 3rd best receiver.

    In other words, the only reason Marvin Harrison Jr won the Biletnikoff over Malik Nabers is because A) he went to Ohio State and B) his dad is Marvin Harrison.

    Perhaps, but I'm not sure whether homer cares about the Ohio State. In that state, there are the three cities, and people tend to be partial to their city. The Ohio State would be Columbus, whereas I think homer is Cleveland. Not sure whether there's a school up there, though.

    Re: Post Race!

    I would say that yards and catches are both potentially misleading stats. The percentage is telling, though. After all, you can rack up the yards and catches simply by being targeted a lot, which will happen to a big fish in a small pond. If there are several good receivers, no one of them should do that much better than the rest. However, catches per target would tend to show effectiveness more than just total catches or total yards.

    I don't know whether that last sentence makes sense, I got distracted while writing it. I'm not going to go back and look, though, because this is the post race, so just adding a post saying I won't go back and look is more effective.

    Yeah, it's quite telling that Brian Thomas Jr did almost as good as Marvin Harrison Jr while being the #2 WR at LSU.

    Re: Post Race!

    Number 2 receivers can always benefit if the number one is really good. The number one draws the coverage to them, which will end up enhancing the stats for the rest. Not sure how much I'd read into the stats of a #2.

    I will say growing up in the 90s when LSU was a terrible team with no offense to show for, this year has been bitter sweet.

    On one hand we had an absolutely explosive offense with a deep WR and RB core and now a Heisman trophy winning QB.
