Sunday Night Football Flex Scheduling Watch: Week 5

NOTE: For my thoughts after learning the protections, read this post on Bleacher Report. NBC’s Sunday Night Football package gives it flexible scheduling. For Weeks 10-15, 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 […]

2011 College Football Rankings – Week 6

Who’s the best team in college football: Alabama, LSU, or Oklahoma? It’s hard to argue with Alabama’s score ratio, with two shutouts and at least doubling the score of every opponent they’ve played, including Arkansas and Florida. Most people seem to have Oklahoma a bit behind the two SEC schools, and that might be appropriate; […]

NFL Schedule: Week 5

Can someone explain something to me? Okay, so everyone knows that Cam Newton has been playing lights out and putting up a show every week. And a few people have noticed that despite the attention foisted on Newton, the Panthers are 1-3. So, Newton’s offense has been blowing up, and they’re 1-3… so why has […]

Sunday Night Football Flex Scheduling Watch: Week 4

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 it “tentatively” schedules for each […]

2011 College Football Rankings – Week 5

Something new this week: The full ratings are now available in PDF […]

You could say… he beat him like an… 808 drum. YEEEEEAAAAAHHHHH!!!!! (Okay, that was completely and utterly lame.)

(From The Order of the Stick. Click for full-sized architectural knowledge.) I have very little to add to this strip. (Not a good thing when it’s a whopping four pages long. Oh well, let’s see how it goes this time…) I have very little to add to Roy taking time out in the middle of […]

2011 College Football Rankings – Week 4

How much longer will I be doing the college football rankings? They eat up a lot of time at a time of year when I have a bunch of other projects in the pipeline, the last two years at least I didn’t post post-bowl rankings on Da Blog, there’s an increasing feeling we’ll get a […]
