On the weekend before TudorCon14 the SCPC had another week with thirteen new games.  Thirteen seems to be our favorite number.  This week’s games pushed the challenge past the 200 game mark in Season II.  We’re a little bit behind last year’s pace.  In Season I we hit 200 games on January 4th.  We hit 300 on January 29th.  The missing games are those of Mike Velikey and his awesome North Jersey Legends league.  Where are you Mike?

Week twenty of Season II had some big occurrences on the electric gridiron.

Brain Witkkop and his NMELF are a mainstay week in and week out so far this season.  He turned another seven game week.  Six were played this week and included USC over Stanford 21 – 17, UCLA over Hawaii in a battle of undefeated teams 28 – 21, and Washington beating Arizona 21 – 10.  Washington had a win over Tennessee that was not recorded a few weeks ago that is now accounted for.  Colorado remained undefeated with a 20 – 14 win over ASU, and Cal took care of the Ducks 17 – 14.  In the upset of the week the mighty Wolverines fell to the Hoosiers 28 – 24. Just like last year, a seemingly invincible Michigan team looks over a team from the Hoosier state.  Last year it was Purdue.   With the loss Michigan jumps up to # 2 in the rankings  It will be hard for them to stay there now though.  They may not see many more QWB points this season as the rest of their games will have to be played against teams who are not playing a full schedule this year.  Is that accurate Brain?  Who knows though.  Maybe a one loss team can sneak into the BCS.  It has happened you know;O)  Brains Pac-10 teams are steadily climbing too with three now in the top ten.  UCLA, Washington, and Colorado, all undefeated at 5-0, sit in the # 8, # 9, and # 10 spots.  All three will look to move closer to the top and become bowl eligible with another win.

Another game that was missed a few weeks ago was out of ECFA.  Alabama defeated Vanderbilt 31 – 10.  Ed has been quit lately as has LeMay.  I’m sure they are both sooooo busy packing for TudorCon as they both are attending.  Maybe we’ll get some SCPC ‘challenge’ games out of these guys at the convention.  (SUBTLE HINT)

Dream Season II had just one game this week, but it was a big one as the defending SCPC National Champion 1972 Miami Dolphins got off on the right foot in Season II with a 21 – 10 win over the 1975 Steelers.  The champs have a long view to the top of the heap from their debut ranking at # 96, but we know from last season that whoever lives the dream in a Ray Sugg Dream Season can also dream big in the SCPC. ‘

WMLMF action this week saw Lynn’s Weirdwoves sting the bees 42 – 28.  That 70’s Rams Team spanked the Fairies, and they liked it, 42 – 35, and the Sasquatch took a big step in defeating the Mennonites soundly 52 – 26.  No WMLMF teams have climbed back into the top ten, but Al has squads at numbers 11, 12, 15, 16, 18, and 20.  With the size of Al’s league his teams don’t race to the top, but rest assured the best WMLMF teams will factor in next summer.

The Dirty Bird Electric Football League’s 2012 Falcons continued their quest to get back to #1 with a 28 – 13 win over the 2012 Seahawks.  The win got them back to the top five.  They will need some QWB points to get back to the top though.

Here’s the week’s top ten.

Dropped Out: Midwest Mennonites (AD)

On the Move: Canadian Sasquatch (AD), 1972 Miami Dolphins (RS)

Chris LeMay’s Raiders still have that huge lead on the rest of the pack.  It will sure be interesting to see how this plays out as several owners/coaches are employing different strategies to get teams to the ten game max.  Some are playing the traditional league schedule or tournament formats, while others have adopted unique formats that allow single teams to play out their ten games more quickly.

How will it all play out?

For all of you going to TudorCon14 have a marvelous, wonderful, inspirational, and unforgettable time.  In other words, ‘I can’t go and you all suck!  I’m so jealous it hurts me to even think about it!’  With that in mind please post to the forum all weekend with updates on the action, reviews of the exciting new products, and possibly even a little pity for us non-attendees.
