    Apparently not chief. Think of it as horseshoes. If you chunk the damn thing twice as far as the stake but in a straight line, you still missed the stake by a helluva lot.

        Again, I'm not at a loss regarding the concept of distance from a physical point or how to calculate it. It's not a direct correlation to predicting a ballgame. We will have to disagree that a 45-0 prediction would not have been a better depiction of the game than Stan's. Your method did fine with the current set of data.

          Results are the same if your data points are predicted spread and predicted O/U total instead of Bama points and LSU points.

                  Not really. It pays about the same though.
