KEY STATS ON GLORIA’S ANGELS:
Who is Gloria’s Angels:
Jerry Brewer from the Seattle Times has written extensively about the Strauss’ family (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2003896597_gloria22.html) and their daughter Gloria’s struggle with Neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer, for over four years. During this whole ordeal the mother, Kristen Strauss, was also suffering from Multiple Sclerosis which at times restricted her to bed rest. The Strauss family experienced a tremendous outpouring of support from their extended family, friends, church and community. The support has built the blueprint for Gloria’s Angels. Along with an auction that took place earlier in the year, we also have this golf tournament to make a difference and help ease the struggles of family’s that have to deal with similar struggles in the future.
We talked yesterday about Odds of the #2 seed...here are the scenarios and the odds.
36% chance of all those teams losing at least 1 game
8% chance of Hawks winning out and all of those teams losing 1 game.
Now what are the chances the Hawks MISS THE PLAYOFFS, heres how you figure it out…you take the SCENARIOS of how Hawks can miss the playoffs
We know they are in if they win out and we can assume they are in if they win the two home games and finish 10-6 (8-4)
What are the chances of the other scenarios?
Now what are the chances of missing the playoffs in each scenario
(We are assuming playoffs at 100% if you go 11-5 or 10-6 and win both NFC games)
Now you multiply the chance of each scenario by the chance of missing out under each scenario then you add up all the totals and you get your total chance of missing the playoffs.
1. 8-8 5% chance it happens x 100% chance you miss the playoffs if it did happen= 5% overall chance of occurring
2. 9-7 (6-6) 14% chance it happens x 80% chance you miss the playoffs if it does happen= 11% overall chance of occurring
3. 9-7 (7-5) 15% chance of happening x 60% chance of missing playoffs if it did happen= 9% overall chance of occurring
4. 10-6 (7-5) 46% chance of happening x 22% chance of missing the playoffs if it did happen. = 10% overall chance of happening
ADD up 5%+11%+9%+10%= 35% chance of the Hawks not making the playoffs
