Sunday Night Football Flex Scheduling Watch: Week 8

NBC’s Sunday Night Football package gives it flexible scheduling. For the last seven weeks of the season, the games are determined on 12-day notice, 6-day notice for Week 17. Last year, no game was listed in the Sunday Night slot, only a notation that one game could move there. CBS and Fox were able to […]

NFL Week 8 SuperPower Rankings

I only missed four games this past week, and only two in which I picked the favorite. In both cases, the team on top in the SuperPower Rankings won, so there really was no good Upset Special this week. This week, I have Indy pulling the Upset Special over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLI.V. […]

College Football Rankings after Week 9

With an eleventh-hour deal, the game of the week between Arizona State and Oregon will be distributed to a national audience on ESPN, except in Arizona, Oregon and Southern California, due to prior arrangements. Now we can turn our attention to the new ratings.

NFL Week 7 SuperPower Rankings

Just to have an upset special, I made a late change to the picks so that I would be picking the Texans over the Chargers. Last week I got back on track with an 8-for-14 week. Through seven weeks I’m 63-40 for a .612 record. As promised last week, the SuperPower Rankings are moving to […]

College Football Rankings after Week 8

In two weeks, Arizona State-Oregon could determine who goes to the Rose Bowl, if not the National Championship Game. But at the moment it’s not looking to be on television at all outside of the states in question, because the TV schedule for this particular week was set for the Pac-10 before the season. Here‘s […]

Thoughts on the WNBA’s new Atlanta expansion team

I remember happening upon a web site a while back that was heavily campaigning for the WNBA to put an expansion team in Atlanta. At the time, I thought it might have been a bit of a long shot, mainly because I didn’t think of Atlanta as a hub of women’s basketball (certainly not in […]

Sunday Night Football Flex Scheduling Watch: Week 6

Superpower Rankings and a Life Update

Can someone take over the Consensus Power Rankings for me? Not right away, maybe next year. I still like the concept and value the Consensus Rankings far more than any individual ranking when making out my picks of the week, but it’s so time-consuming. Ideally, looking at and plugging in a ranking for a team […]

What a long, strange trip it’s been

What a wild, wacky college football season it’s been. The raft of upsetitis has now spread to the top teams. USC is the best team in the country? Whoops, they just lost to Stanford, the dregs of the Pac-10. LSU is the best team? Whoops, they just lost to Kentucky. Now Ohio State is the […]
