What a crazy week!  Only 12 games were reported in the 25th week of the SCPC’s second season, but they were some big games that will have a lasting impact on the rankings down the stretch.  We have a new #1 ranked team that actually lost for the first time this week, and there were a number of other upsets.

The NJLMFL reported two games.  Oakland defeated San Antonio 24 – 20.  Raiders QB Ken Stabler threw 3 touchdown passes including a 35 yard strike to Cliff Branch on the final play of the game. Los Angeles was better than Boston by a score of 14 – 6.  Mike noted that the Rams’ defense was dominating.  If I recall correctly this is a bit of an upset as Boston typically gets a few wins before being knocked out of NFLMFL Super Bowl tournaments.   It will take Mike a while to complete the early rounds of the tournament, but once he does there will be some NJLMFL teams climbing their way towards the top.

Angel’s Legends II Tournament ticked along with two more games as well.  The first was Buffalo 28 Houston 14.  The second finished Miami 10 Boston 3.  Buffalo and Miami will now face one another with the winner to play the Jets for the AFL East title.  Angel’s Packers are out of this tournament and dropped out of the top ten this week.  Buffalo, and several other surviving teams in the Legends II tournament, are in good shape though.  One of them will soon replace the Peckers (not a typo) in the top ten.

Dirty Bird Electric Football saw yet another Falcon win.  This week it was the 1980 version of the Dirty Birds over the 1965 Chargers 28 – 13.  The Chargers are now the league’s oldest team.  The 1980 Falcons are now 3 – 0.  The 2012 bunch is still top dog with an 8 – 1 mark, but they’ve dropped to # 10 in the rankings.  I wonder if Andy will ever do a Dirty Bird vs. Dirty Bird game?

MPANMMEFSL wrapped up it’s second semi-final.  The hottest team in the league, Grattan, couldn’t get their 5th consecutive win over the team with the best record in the league, Camp 53.  The Shays won the game 8 – 3 and will now face the Northome Bears for the Championship of Nine-Man MEF.  Northome, 3 – 1, is now in the best shape of Gross’s teams to emerge as a top team in the SCPC.

NMEFL provided the most games, the most shake-up, the new # 1, and the biggest upsets in quite some time.  Stanford staved off elimination from bowl eligibility by handing Washington their second straight loss 23 – 20.  Hawaii, as expected, was 27 – 13 better than Cal.  Michigan moved to 8 – 1 with a 31 – 21 win over Northwestern.  Although not an upset by any means for Michigan to give up 21 points to anyone is surprising.  If they had shut Northwestern down like they do most team the Wolverines would be # 1.  As it is they are # 2 again.  Colorado defeated Arizona 28 – 14.  The Bufs rebounded from their only loss of the season to USC and now are in the top five, and have a shot at the top spot in the conference and the SCPC thanks to two huge upsets.  In the first USC, the team that beat Colorado last week, fell to Arizona State.  ASU, like Stanford, avoid a postseason elimination fifth loss by upsetting the Trojans 28 – 24.  In the shocker of all shockers the Oregon Ducks, 2 – 6 coming in, knocked off the last undefeated team in the West.  The Ducks scored 27 points and held the powerful UCLA offense to 21.  The loss by UCLA opens the door for either Michigan or Colorado.  Despite the loss the Bruins are the new # 1 team in the land.  Along with Michigan, # 2, they are the first teams to reach triple digits in SCPC points.  With just one game remaining for each of Wittkop’s Left Coast teams, and Michigan, we’ll soon know how high the bar for # 1 will be set.

In other SCPC related news Al Dunham is banging the drum for the start of a second Postal League Season.  So far only four teams are signed up.  The Postal League is a lot of fun!  It will run much more smoothly this year.  Consider jumping in.  If things go as planned all Postal League teams will get a ten game schedule in before the end of the SCPC regular season.

The survey that is being conducted is being well received.  So far we have 40 responses.  Some interesting things are coming out.  The results will be shared once we let it run a little longer to get any more responses out there.  The clear, and largest problem, in the world of Solitaire MEF is that LeMay is a boob, and along with his minions: Gross, Dunham, and Morgans, LeMay is attempting a takeover of the free world.
