The last week of February was not the busiest week of SCPC action ever, but it was a significant week.  Three ‘headline’ worthy occurrences took place.  The first you may have noted in the SCPC Stats section above.  The second you probably noticed right away if you’ve been on the rankings page in the last day or so.  The third you’ll note the next time you go to the rankings page.  Otherwise just keep reading and take not of the ‘headlines’.

NMEFL UPSETS CONTINUE PROVIDING A NEW # 1 FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE WEEK

NMEFL action provided several upsets for the second consecutive week.  Our youngest coach, Morgan, guided Grandpa’s Stanford Cardinal to another win.  The Cardinal moved to 6 – 4 and bowl eligibility with a 24 – 17 win over Cal.  The bonus points the Cardinal have received for wins with Morgan playing the game have earned them a top ten rank as well.  Michigan survived a first half scare from Ohio State, but pulled away in the second half for a 35 – 17 win.  Arizona State joined Stanford as a 6 – 4 bowl team with a win over rival Arizona 21 – 10.  Hawaii moved to the lead pack at 8 – 2 with a win over Washington 26 – 14.  This wasn’t really an upset, but Washington has now lost three straight to end the season after a 7 – 0 start.  Now for the upsets!  Oregon, 3 – 6 coming in, defeated Colorado, 8 – 1 coming in, by a score of 27 – 24.  The loss costs Colorado a shot at the top spot.  Oregon will not see a bowl game with a 4 – 6 record, but they won two straight games over top five team to finish their season and land in the top 10 because of it.  Upset number two is a bigg’un.  USC knocked off the number one UCLA squad 28 – 21.  UCLA, after starting 8 – 0, lost two games to end the season.  Their rise to number one last week despite a loss was clearly undeserved.  So, does that make USC’s rise to number one this week unconvincing?  The Season I Champions had 142 total points.  The trojans sit on top with an 8 – 2 record and 123 points.  The best 8 – 2 finish in Season I was 119 points.  Brian’s teams beat the crap out of each other down the stretch.  With everybody* now with a complete ten game schedule played there won’t be any more points earned.  I don’t  see USC staying on top.  Michigan could get more points if Brian plays some of the teams they defeated more thus earning the Wolverines more QWB points.  What will Brian do next?

*Brian, note that Cal and Arizona only have nine games, but they did play each other.  We must have missed a non-conference game for them both.  Check them out and let me know what you see that is missing.

ECFA completed Project Game # 78, Season V, Game 3 in which Auburn defeated Tennessee 10 – 7.  Ed’s leagues are really quite amazing.  Check out these new threads on the forum for his EPFA ‘73 and EPFA ‘74 projects.

Charles Angel’s Legends II Tournament moved one step closer to crowning a champion.  Buffalo defeated Miami 14 – 6.  The Bills are now one game from SCPC bowl eligibility, and are creeping closer and closer to the top ten.

Dirty Bird Electric Football gave the Falcons a rest again this week putting the ‘65 Chargers back out.  The Bolts were not up to the task again, they lost last week, as the ‘72 Redskins defeated them 31 – 28.  Andy’s Falcons teams, ‘72, ‘80, & ‘12 are all in good shape for the home stretch, but there is a sleeper or two in his ranks if he chooses to push them to ten games.

WMLMF results this week were the Third Reich 31 over the Pacific Sharks 28, and the Battlin’ Bozos of Battle Creek 28 the Cleveland Cadavers 28.  Cleveland was the last undefeated team to go down in Al’s league.  Who’s been saying for weeks they weren’t for real?  Oh, that would be me.  Check the last two week’s updates.  The league title, and run at the SCPC, is now there for the taking for That ‘70s Rams Team.

VENICE ELECTRIC PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE JOINS SCPC

The VEPFL under the direction of Frank Burgo (FrankB) joined the SCPC this week.  Welcome aboard Frank.  So glad to have you with us.  In the inaugural game the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Houston Oilers 31 – 28.  That must have been some colorful game with Creamsicles and Love Ya Blue doing battle.  Here is what Frank shared about his league.

The league is set up with 28 NFL Teams. The League is NOT divided into conferences, and Divisions. Teams will play a 10 game season. The top 14 teams go to the Playoffs, with the First and Second Place Teams getting a first round BYE.

I play on a Scale Size Board, and use a modified version of the MPFL rules.

Here’s the top ten:

SCPC RANKINGS PAGE UPDATES

If you haven’t already checked out the rankings page and noted the updates do so.  Ever wish you could more easily find your teams, sort the table how you’d like to see it, or compare your teams all on one screen?  Now you can.  The rankings page now has a filter that allows you to choose views filtered by owner, division, or home league*.  Each column of the table is also clickable to reorder the contents.  Plus, there is a hand search feature so you can quickly find anything you want in the rankings.  Awesome!  Thanks Corey.

*Some teams don’t have a home league noted yet, and there is an error in a few as well.  This is on the list to fix.

Two previous errors were corrected.  Al’s Arctic Tundra had a game score fixed.  Ed played a challenge game with a team of Chris’s.  It is now correctly entered too.

As always please check your teams information over.  There is a lot of data involved with this and there are bound to be entry errors now and then.  They can all be fixed if we know about them, so let us know when you note one.

A quick note on the survey we did to close.  51 people logged on and took the survey.  Thank you to everyone who did.  Your input is very helpful.  I will be posting a summary of the survey results on the forum part of which will be requests for those who made specific responses to contact us and provide further insights.  I hope anyone who can will share to help us improve the SCPC moving forward.
