  1. Its been a pretty crazy week as Duke, Kansas and Florida were preseason top 10 and lost to teams ranked below 75 in the active KenPom ranking. Three in the week and four in the season. It only occurred three times last year.

    And Joe Webb is still in the league, on a roster?
  3. Say it ain't so, Joe

    Both USA Gymnastics and US Swimming wrote the USOC about changing protocols nearly two decades ago, but all three of them basically balked, especially the USOC as they were going to decertify US Gymnastics when their president originally asked to change policy. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/olympics/2017/03/31/usoc-sexual-abuse-usa-swimming-senate/99826600/

  5. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

  6. Forbes sets the mm market like a Realtor, no more no less (most of the time as the franchises are so limited) Whose "non-hockey" business is NHL better? We know the Board of Governors hate Quebec's Videotron, but is Tillman Fertitta's mediocre casual dining empire(HOU) or Bruckheimer's TV/movie business (SEA) better?

    Exactly. And Pete Garcia and Davis are friends and have been since Davis coached the Hurricanes and Garcia was the operations coordinator. Davis was out at UNC, but was a little too hot to touch at the time as the NCAA started looking into Tar Heel athletics. Oregon's future may hinge on what decision(s) DC Jim Leavitt and the rest of the Taggart's Oregon staff makes as much as Cristobal hire. The smaller number of coaches headed to FSU, the better for the Ducks as continuity still matters.

    Sean Payton sends Ted Ginn across the middle and he actually made the catch. But Sean had Ted take a big hit to remind Ted that he doesn't take those hits well.

    Tennessee, you need to be protesting nearly all of this report outside of Chad Morris. Fulmer channeling his inner Barry Alvarez in terms of controlling the program. http://footballscoop.com/news/update-tennessee-phillip-fulmer-candidates/

    Late in the BCS era, Texas (12 & 13)and GT (11 & 12) went to consecutive Alamo and Sun Bowls respectively. In its beginning, the B1G didn't have a no repeat policy in place, so Ohio State went to consecutive Outbacks and Michigan went to consecutive Citrus.

    Alabama didn't play well most of November against LSU they weren't dominant and at MS State, they escaped with a win. Then their pre-Iron Bowl FCS game, only to get rolled at Auburn the next week.

    During the week, many analytics folks were convinced based on the committee's history that tOSU with a B1G championship was getting in over Alabama. They think that the priority in order is: 1- Wins against "Quality Teams" ..aka 7-5 or better. 2- Wins against Top 25 teams. 3- Conference championship

    In that game, Kelly Bryant should not have played if he was as injured from the week prior as they claimed. Plus, their starting kicker tore his ACL before and the backup missed two of three. Have a 100% qb for Four Quarters, you win that game
