Vols blows best

Today, 01:21 PM

Jones has also gotten flak for kicking a field goal at the 1-yard line against Oklahoma. For sure, he should. Jones said his reasoning came down to "analytics," which is an insult to everybody involved in analytics. As Bill Connelly wrote at the time, the expected points value of going for it was 4.6, more than the value of kicking a field goal. And if you miss, the opponent gets the ball near its goal line. Those extra points would've been nice, considering Oklahoma tied the game and sent it to OT.

This is what should upset Tennessee fans. The problems on defense stem somewhat from bad playcalling, but are quite varied. The problems on offense stem from predictable playcalling, but if neither running nor passing works, well, there isn't a lot you can do.

But making bad decisions about how many points your team should score is just making bad decisions. A great team can turn bad calls into good plays. A great team can't turn a field goal attempt into a touchdown.

A lot of things Tennessee has done late in games have been bad. Bad seems fixable, since the Vols have the talent to be good. But Jones' gamesmanship when it comes to scoring points with a lead has been stupid, and it is significantly harder to fix stupid.

welcome to the cult

29 September 2015 - 08:24 AM

Did y'all know that the SEC is a cult?  

Yeah, well when you're right, you're right....

Feherty, who was born in Northern Ireland, is actually a huge Alabama football fan. He attended his first college football game at Bryant-Denny Stadium in 2005 and was hooked. It was the most extraordinary atmosphere he'd ever witnessed and he now tries to keep up with the Tide when he's not traveling covering golf.

"College sports, college football, and the SEC especially, you don't see it anywhere else in the world," Feherty told AL.com in an interview. "It really is amazing. These are just kids between the ages of 18 and 22 out there playing at that level, and the alumni -- it's like a cult."


Malware on iPhone apps

24 September 2015 - 01:09 PM

(Reuters) - Apple Inc said the WeChat messaging app and car-hailing app DiDi Taxi were among the 25 most popular apps that were found to be infected with malicious software, the first-ever large-scale attack on its App Store.

The company had not previously disclosed which apps had been affected, although many had been identified by third parties.

Apple said on Sunday it was cleaning up its App Store after several cybersecurity firms reported that unknown hackers had embedded a malware, dubbed XcodeGhost, in hundreds, possibly thousands, of Chinese apps.

"We have no information to suggest that the malware has been used to do anything malicious," Apple said in its XcodeGhost Q&A Web page on Thursday.

Other infected apps include Baidu Inc's Baidu Music app, a music app from Internet portal NetEase Inc and the 58 Classified-Job, Used Cars, Rent app.

Tencent Holdings Ltd owns WeChat.

This is the first reported case of large number of malicious software programs making their way past Apple's stringent app review process.

Cyber security firm FireEye Inc said earlier this week that the security breach was much bigger than previously thought, affecting more than 4,000 apps on the App Store, compared with the earlier estimate of 39.

Prior to this attack, a total of just five malicious apps had ever been found in the App Store, according to cyber security firm Palo Alto Networks Inc.

Apple said on Thursday it was working with developers to get the apps back on the App Store and was blocking new apps that contained the malware. (apple.co/1jdKVsy)

The company also said some of the affected apps could be fixed through updates.

The hackers targeted the App Store using a counterfeit version of Xcode "toolkit", Apple's app-building software.

Many Chinese app developers downloaded the tainted software kit instead of the original one because of the slow download speeds from Apple's official servers located overseas.

Apple said it was working to make Xcode faster for Chinese developers to download. (Reporting by Anya George Tharakan; additional reporting by Sneha Banerjee in Bengaluru; Editing by Anil D'Silva)
