2011 College Football Rankings – Week 11

All season I’ve been saying the same thing: that no one, not even the pollsters, really believes that Oklahoma State is the best non-SEC team in the country. There are a number of reasons for that – namely, a weak nonconference slate and Texas being the only team in positive B Points they beat by […]

Sunday Night Football Flex Scheduling Watch: Week 10

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 game could move there. Now, NBC lists the game it “tentatively” schedules for each […]

(From MS Paint Adventures: Homestuck. Click for full-sized all-purpose baking utensil.) Homestuck has been undeniably awesome so far… but reading a recent Tumblr post of Hussie’s, it’s also exhibited an example of something not to do. Aspiring Webcomickers Everywhere, do not bend your story just to do something you think is cool. Do a side […]

Last-Minute Remarks on SNF Week 12 Picks

Week 12 (November 17): Tentative game: Pittsburgh @ Kansas City Prospects: 7-3 v. 4-5. After rallying from an 0-3 start to climb above .500 at 4-3, the Chiefs have lost two straight. Hmm. They’re still only a game out of the division lead, but this could still prove lopsided. Protected games: Patriots-Eagles (CBS) and Bears-Raiders […]

2011 College Football Rankings – Week 10

Well, that was disappointing. Neither team is going to get the top spot coming out of it. No, Oklahoma responded to moving up to #2 by blowing out a good Texas A&M team, and as a result they, not LSU, benefit from Alabama falling out of the top spot. We’ll see if they hang onto […]

NFL Schedule: Week 10

No thanks to Awful Announcing, you get the schedule a day after the Thursday Night game. I’ve kept the MXS and records for that game what they were prior to the game. AA says they should have it up Wednesday or Thursday afternoon from now on, but if they don’t next week I may have […]

This is both why I shouldn’t be posting on Homestuck, and why I’m the only one crazy and stubborn enough to do so.

(From MS Paint Adventures: Homestuck. Click for full-sized reign of the pool balls.) So. Let’s talk about that EOA flash some more. A single installment of a comic has to be absolutely incredible for me to devote two posts to talking about it. If anything would qualify, it would be that flash, but that’s not […]

NFL Schedule: Week 9

Gotta get this done earlier next week once Thursday night games start. Vegas seems to disagree with the power rankings a lot, I notice. Favorite playing at home can’t fully explain some of these lines. What is the Median Expected Score? Away MXS Home Time (ET) TV DTV Announcers NTR SIRIUS Notes Away Home #14(4-3) […]
