2009 College Football Rankings – Week 8

This was a wild week for the C Ratings – and this was a week in which in many ways, the C Ratings were justified! Every so often I find myself wondering if the computer on which the calculations are done affect the resulting rankings. Just look at the turnover on the rankings this week […]

Sunday Night Football Flex Scheduling Watch: Week 7

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. The first year, no game was listed in the Sunday Night slot, only a notation that one game could move there. Now, NBC lists the game […]

College Football Schedule – Week 9

My laptop screen is cracked and between using the lab computers at school, dealing with both what to do about the laptop and setting up a new bank account, and being distracted by Twitter’s new Lists feature (more on that in a post when it goes live for everyone), I’ve been spending virtually no time […]

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

It’s a time-appropriate RID… and one of the oddest Halloween costumes I’ve ever heard of. “I’m 2-D!”

No strip image because this isn’t really about OOTS. And a project that should have taken three days got wrapped up with another one and has taken over a month.

For better or worse, in the absence of any sort of paywall on the actual content and enough readers to justify a thriving ad market, most webcomics are reliant on merchandise to make money, usually T-shirts and reprint books. I may complain about the effect this has on which webcomics can be financially successful, but […]

Three of… well, the more interesting games of the weekend

Interestingly, both of my lineal title games are among the more interesting games in college football this coming weekend. Florida will be facing Georgia, while USC plays Oregon in what could be an effective Pac-10 title game, even if it has minimal national title implications. In the NFL, if, as I’ve heard, we’re now going […]

Sunday Night Football Flex Scheduling Watch: Week 6

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.

College Football Schedule – Week 8

2009 College Football Rankings – Week 7

In the Battle of Techs, G is better than V, and no one knows how good T might really be. There were five games this week between teams in the Top 25, but the identity of two of those games depended on which rankings you were using. Texas Tech (playing Nebraska) and Arkansas (playing Florida) […]

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

So I’m trying to write this as quickly as I can given my computer’s slowness and my rush to get out the door by 7:45 to catch the next part of IFC’s Monty Python documentary they’re apparently not replaying after tonight after I couldn’t finish the CFB ranks in time, and I get one of […]
