TUSGraph: Graphematics

This week on TUSGraph, I’ve prepared a lesson in sports history. The graph shows the points for (black) and against (red) USC over the past three years. That red line only occasionally peaks above the black one, but I’ve marked the only times anyone ever cares about USC at Stanford. I was hoping a visual representation might highlight two things:
1. How amazing our victory was in 2007
2. How amazing our victory was in 2009
Still not getting it? Pretend Stanford football is the guy, and USC is the watermelon.
Now for some predictions. Based on highly scientific math, we can predict the score of Big Game.
In 2007, we beat USC by 1 point, and Cal by 7.
In 2009, we beat USC by 34 points, and….
Well, it doesn’t take a non-fuzzy to show that we’re going to beat Cal by 238 points this year (34 * (7/1)). Thanks for following Graphematics!
BEAT CAL!
