comment Java multiline string
@TudorManole: Each time you use the + operator on Strings (not counting string constants) the compiler turns that into a three-step process: (1) creating a new StringBuilder object, (2) appending both Strings to it, and (3) using toString() to turn it back into a String. That is not something you want to do inside a loop. If you need a loop, you generally want to set up a single StringBuilder first and then append() to it inside the loop. That way there's just the one object and it doesn't do all that extra copying. See stackoverflow.com/a/7819127 for a slightly longer version.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about Google's algorithms.

comment One-point safety by defending team
As of the 2015 season, the NFL rules have changed. The ball is no longer dead on change of possession during a conversion attempt, so a one-point safety for the kicking team is now possible.

comment NCAA Football 1 Point
Your first sentence has it backwards: the ball has to be returned to the wrong endzone, which would normally be a two-point safety. And it doesn't matter whether it was a blocked kick or a two-point try.
