College Football Schedule – Week 14

Alright, so we had a few weeks of weird posts there and skipped last week, but we are back on the road… just in time for the weakest college football week of the year. (Blame my sickness, and the finals crunch, for things being this late.) In a weird twist, every BCS conference except one has an effective title game this week… and the Big Ten had theirs a few weeks back, meaning the only two conferences in all of FBS not to have games that were considered effective title games at the time are the Mountain West and Sun Belt.

Honestly, the events of the last few weeks and missing last week have me thinking about whether or not I should keep doing the schedule. To be honest, it’s always been a bit of wankery so I can see my college football rankings next to each game (often as though they were on a ticker on some sports network), as well as see the connections between the rankings, the game, the TV, and the announcing teams. But no one has ever cared about the schedule or even the rankings, and while the schedule is never as time-consuming as the rankings, it’s still inconvenient as a piece of work I have to do in fall quarter but not the other quarters. So I’m starting a new Da Blog Poll asking you whether the schedule should stay, go, or whatever. The poll will stay up until the start of August, one of the longest polls I’ve ever done.

All times Eastern.
