Very impressive.... the only thing I can imagine more impressive than that would be if MY Owls could improve their win total by 650%

2-11 —-> 13-1?

That's 750%. 650% would be 11-3.

Hmm, so if we “improved” by 50% would that make us 3-9 (yes) or 1-11(no).

13-1 is an *improvement* of 11 wins, 11/2=650%

This nerd stands by his original post.
(Although I haven’t come up with a “logically consistent” path for it to actually happen on the field.)

Really, I just want us to improve by 1% (don’t lose to UTEP)

I followed you until you got to the 11/2=650% part. Maybe my calculator is broken.

edit: So I'm going to throw out a third answer. 550%

My previous post might have been little too ambiguous but what i was saying is Goliath better be getting his math correct when trying to out nerd the Rice folk here which both Owlumni and goliath flunked by a good margin. Some confusion came from the part that Rice will be playing one more game this season than they did last year.

The actual number is we went from basically raising nothing to a lot. Approximately $6mil. And even more important a 25% increase in the membership

Y’all are right and I’ve been properly out-nerded.

I am happy for you, and I am happy for Charlotte. You proved that it can be done, and Charlotte's 49er Club is the biggest thing Mike Hill has not overhauled since he became AD. We need to follow your outstanding example.
