A nice weekly total of 16 games was entered this week.  That’s one of our best weeks so far in Season II.  In Season I there were a few weeks in which Mike Veliky entered that many game himself, but so far no Mike in Season II.  Everybody likes Mike!  Where is he?  With the Christmas Holiday and New Year fast approaching we are entering the peak time of year for solitaire play.  In Season I the holidays, college bowl season, and some extra days off with family and friends visiting brought about an increase in the games being reported.  If Thanksgiving and the weeks following have been any indication this year will be the same.  Some big name coaches from Season I have yet to start their new seasons.  Velikey I already mentioned.  Ray Sugg and his defending champion 1972 Miami Dolphins are on the horizon.  The coaches of the Postal League have not yet got going either.  Who knows what other new coaches are out there.  Season II has a lot of new things yet to come.

One thing that is not new yet is the current number one team.  It is still McLaughlin’s 2012 Atlanta Falcons with a 4-0 record, and 39 SCPC points.  The Falcons’ lead was shortened significantly though.  What was a 15 point advantage over Morgans’ Kentucky Wildcats is now just four points over LeMay’s surprising Florida Blazers.

LeMay and his Misses are both convalescing at home.  From the pace Chris is entering results that lucky lady is getting to see some great MF action.  The LeMay home must be a wonderful place to be this holiday season.  Hope both Mr. and Mrs. LeMay heal quickly.  In WLAPF action the Oilers defeated the Americans 17 – 14 and the Blazers defeated the Cowboys and the Bills by the same score.  These results caused some big movement the rankings bringing three of Chris’s teams into the top ten.  He now has 5 of the top 10 teams in the land. Chris has a great thread in the forum detailing his current tournament.  To catch-up on who’s facing elimination over the holidays check it out.

Steady as always Al Dunham played his usual two games this week in the WMLMF.  In game one the Third Reich defeated the Weirdwolves 36 – 27.  The Cows, whose offense has been udderly non-existent, managed an unusually low scoring 14-7 win over Kansas City.  All four teams are now 1-2.  Al’s Killer Bees sit at number ten and his Mennonites are seventh.

ECFA had just one game this week.  Nortre Dame defeated Pittsburgh in the first game for both teams.  The game was a break from Ed’s SEC action.  ECFA’s Kentucky Wildcats, Ed’s only ranked team, slipped from number two to eight.  The ECFA forum thread has been updated and explains his current project and long term solitaire plans.  Amazing stuff!  Check it out!

Charles Angel got a game in this week.  Two new CAPEF teams, the Jets and Dolphins did battle, with the Jets winning easily 28-7.  The SCPC is waiting for Charles to enter the results of his Father vs. Son Thanksgiving tournament.  These games are legal for SCPC play as the teams used were all part of Charles’s solitaire league.  His boys doing some coaching will earn the winning teams in the tournament some extra points under the Game Scenario Bonus criteria.   As always Charles has threads with some of the best pictures you’ll see on the forum detailing all his game action.

Brain Wittkopp turned in the biggest week with seven games entered.  Arizona defeated Iowa 20 – 10, Stanford bested Purdue 21 – 14, Hawaii won over Oklahoma State 17 – 6, UCLA beat up Wisconsin 21 – 9, Minnesota got past Oregon 24 – 17, while Michigan defeated USC 21 – 7 and Oregon 35 – 7.  Brain is playing a Pac-10 season, but the Big 10 teams are doing some damage in non-conference play.  Michigan is rolling at 3-0 and are now ranked number three in SCPC Season II rankings.  Minnesota, who’s only loss last season was to Michigan in a bowl game, always seems to find a way to win, and Pudue, the only team to beat Michigan last year had a close game as well.  Michigan and Minnesota both finished 10-1 in the top ten of Season I.  I’d sure like to see at least Michigan and Minnesota get a full schedule played again.  It doesn’t look like the left coast can compete.  UCLA, Washington, and Arizona are the only undefeated teams left and Brian is only in week three.

The final two games of the week were a pair of wins for MantarayDre’s Colarado Buffalos who are now 2-2 and looking to make a move.  Dre is using a very unique fantasy scoring system for his new Major College Bowl Implications League.  Plus, he is planning to play the full schedule for one team at a time, beginning with the Buffalos.  This will ensure he has teams competing for the SCPC hardware come August.  It is a very interesting system and strategy.  You can read all about it on the forum.

That’s it for week 15.  Here’s your new top ten.  I added a ‘Previous Rank’ column here.  We are working on getting this added to the master ranking page so everyone can see how much movement there is for all teams each week.
