    Walk-ons became members of Club Trillion last night

    Who'd of thunk 48 hours ago.

    Club Trillion

    "Club Trillion is an exclusive club founded in 2007 by three very handsome and very financially well-off Ohio State basketball players--Kyle Madsen (#15), Danny Peters (#13), and myself. We named ourselves "Club Trillion" because as athletically limited white folk, we found ourselves riding the bench for the Buckeyes. When the time came for us to get in, there would usually only be 1 minute remaining in the game and after sitting down for 39 minutes, we really had no interest in trying to be all that productive. So we devised the plan of trying to get the "trillion" which occurs when we play 1 minute and do absolutely nothing that would appear in the box score, thus making our stat line say 1 minute played followed by a bunch of zeroes"

    Ceaser would always do something to get a stat.

    Unfortunately, the way that ISU (and most schools that use the same Statcrew program that ISU uses) compiles their box scores, minutes played are the very last stat, not the first, so it wouldn't come up as a trillion.

    espn box scores do list minutes played as the first stat however.

    Re: Walk-ons became members of Club Trillion last night

    I swear there was an Iowa player a year or 2 ago that somehow made it to 12 trillion.

    EDIT: Found it, looks like late last year. http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebaske...ag/_/name/iowa

    And 31 trillion!?!? How the hell does that happen!?

    Another great stat along this line is the Voskuhl, which occurs when a big man's combined fouls and turnovers are greater than his combined points and rebounds in a game.

    31 trillion is insane. That would be almost impossible even if you were trying. Sure taking no shots is easy, and maybe not fouling, but getting 0 assists or rebounds may be a little hard. If your blatently passing to people who have no chance of scoring, its likely you would get a turnover eventually.

    I think they started counting multiple minutes without another stat. So 5 minutes with zero stats is 5 trillion.
