    Notes about the video:

    -Texas WR accumulates mass by sweating (3:13)
    -Texas WR's momentum has the units of lbs/m/s (3:37)
    -Acquires speed of receiver, down to the hundredth at 7.62 m/s (3:08)
    -Cites "Leaning into WR" as "textbook procedures" to defend yourself, while making no note of the WR clearly pulling up
    -Dr. Noah "Knowledge of Physics" Dean has a degree in Kinesiology and Motor Neuroscience

    The nerd in me laughed, but the non nerd in me killed the nerd in me and now I'm not a nerd anymore. Thanks for that video.

    I'm thinking that the ref just forgot to carry the one...

    On another note, I'm sure they won't see any bad calls like that when they play against Alabama, Florida, Auburn, Arkansas, etc.

    Good ridden you whiners.

    A large portion of study under the "Kinesiology" umbrella is Biomechanics which refers to the study of physics applied to the human body. Just saying.

    It's still stupid though.

    I think that's the point. He has a PhD and still doesn't know the subject.
     
  7. That bogus flag inevitably cost them the game.

    If it happened to ISU and cost the Clones a game we would all be behind this sort of presentation.

    Not to add to the nerdery, but didn't he use pounds (lbs) as a unit of mass? Pretty sure lbs measure weight, not mass!

    I just love it when you talk nerdy to me!

    You don't have to be smart to see that it was a very bad call. The receiver should at least end up on the ground to draw a personal foul. He just brushed him.

    I thought that was a pretty awesome analysis. Definitely shows that the type of call they are asked to make is not very easy. Looks like they got it wrong in this case.

    Well then, here you go...

    Pound can be mass or force(weight).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pound_(mass)

    The good ol' IP system...

    W = g/gc * m
    W = lbf
    m = lbm
    g = 32.2 ft/s^2 (varies sligthly on Earth with location)
    gc = 32.2 lbm*ft/lbf/s^2 (constant)

    The call was chincy, but it was right. Maybe it makes it tough for aggy to swallow, but I give them no sympathy. If they thought Texas threw their power around in the B12, hope they enjoy the lack of favor they get in the SEC.

    If Hunter had pulled off into a different direction to avoid further contact instead of slowing down and lowering his head, no call would have been made. He made a mistake, it may have cost his team the game, get over it. I love the fact that this call and game result is going to eat A&M up for the next decade, or until they ever get to play Texas again. It's absolutely hilarious, and I love it.

    Yep. Great post. The call was almost questionable, and when it's in question it is supposed to be called.

    In that clip it looks like he is targeting him with his head.

    Funny, and pathetic. Rep to OP.
    I like how he described the game situation as if it were significant. I thought penalties were penalties, regardless?
    I didn't make it through the video. Too pathetic. Did he ever come back to the point about the fact that, when in doubt, hitting with the crown is a foul?
    Finally, I coach YOUTH football. Did he seriously say that lowering your head was textbook defensive posture? I teach my 9-year olds to go into every collision with their grill up, not down. His posture makes the odds of him getting a neck injury skyrocket.
    Jackwagon.

    Pound Mass is typically given the abreviation lbm. It has also been my experience that only mechanical engineers in thermodynamics use this unit. Everyone else uses slugs which makes more sense when compared to SI units. But then again, I don't understand why we still use the English system at all.

    As someone else said, the ridiculous part is that the guy clearly does not understand physics at all. He also mentioned something about "bone-crushing" momentum. Aside from the fact that WR's momentum had nothing to do with the the play, a train moving at .01 m/s has more momentum than that football player, and I wouldn't consider it "bone-crushing".

    French Chemical Engineers back in the 40's apparently loved it. Which is weird. As if translating this paper I'm reading from french to english wasn't bad enough. Oh wait. Nevermind. They were from Quebec. That explains everything.

    Too long, didn't watch. Thank you for the summary.
