Week 27 of Season II in the SCPC was far and away the busiest week on record thus far.  Back in week 17 of Season I Mike Velikey alone entered 27 games leading the way to a weekly total of 40.  This week, week 27 of Season II, Mike logged 17 games.  Newcomers to the SCPC Billy Campbell and his son, Isaiah, entered 15 games.  Add in some of the other regulars with a few games each and we have a new SCPC record week of 43 games.  Overall we are still a little more than 100 games behind Season I’s pace, but we have 27 more teams entered than this time last year.  That should mean we’ll eventually surpass the Season I game total.  We are equal to Season I in the number of participating coaches with 19.  We are also equal in the number of bowl eligible teams with 13.  Recall also that Season I started four weeks late.  The current numbers indicate awesome growth in the SCPC.  Thank you to everyone who is taking part or following along, and helping grow this adventure.  Now to the solitaire action.

Charles Angel’s Legends II Tournament is drawing ever nearer to it terminus.  The Bills, Lions, and Browns all advanced.  Buffalo defeated the NYJ 21 – 14, Cleveland took care of Dallas 28 – 21, and Detroit bested the Colts 28 – 17.  With the win Buffalo becomes bowl eligible in the SCPC.  They are now 6 – 1 and jumped up to number 14 in the rankings.  Detroit is now 4 – 0 # 21.  Cleveland is back a little further with just a 2 – 1 mark.  The Championship games are now set in the Legends Tournament.  Cleveland will face Detroit in the NFL and Buffalo will take on Oakland in the AFL.

The NJLMFL cranked it up this week.  Mike reported “Wife is away.  I can play!!!” on the 5th and boy did he play.  After playing three games each on the 2nd and 3rd Mike went on a terror with the Mrs. gone.  He played 5 games on the fifth, and two more on 6th and 7th.  When it was all said and done it was 17 games in six days.  Mike said he was all caught up now.  “It took a lot of time, but it was fun”.  Here are the results: Giants 21 Showboats 7, Ravens 13 Jaguars 10, Brigade 20 Steelers 7, 500’s 7 Eagles 6, Titans 7 Cougars 3, Rams 24 Lions 10, Raiders 10 Sharks 7, Titans 19 Wildcats 9, Generals 13 Freedom 9, Vikings 21 Mavericks 14, Cardinals 13 Mustangs 10, 49ers 17 Redskins 9, Cannons 20 Patriots 10, Dolphins 13 Renegades 7, Pirates 23 Seahawks 10, Vikings 15 Cyclones 13, Chargers 24 Longhorns 6.

Some highlights from Mike’s games:

In the 49ers win over Washington the Skins had two turnovers and Roger Craig rushed for two touchdowns.

The Cannons may be a sleeper as Tanahill threw two touchdown passes.

Wichita exhausted all ten of their plays in the first 2 drives to take a 13 – 3 lead.  That allowed Minnesota to come back with 12 points in the second half to pull of a 15 – 13 win on a Gary Anderson field goal.

Everything went wrong for Oklahoma.  The Chargers’ defense forced the Longhorns into bad field position all night long.  This gave San Diego a short field every time they had the ball.  The Longhorns also lost both of their running backs (Duane Thomas & Clinton Portis) to injuries.  Ladanian Tomlinson had 2 rushing TD’s in the 24 – 6 blowout.

Mike has 14 teams at 2-0.  One of them will eventually win this giant tournament and surely be a factor in the SCPC Championship chase.

The NMEFL is gearing up for defunct team season, but in the meantime it appears Brian is running some teams out at random, or is he?  The Minnesota Gophers would allow no Irish luck in a 21 – 10 victory over Notre Dame.  Iowa defeated Texas 17 – 14.  Cal won, 17 – 10, over Nebraska.  Arizona thumped Maryland 31 – 14, and Indiana was better than Florida 20 – 14.  Wins by Cal and Arizona says something about the quality of the teams in the recently completed Pac-10 season.  Both were poor teams and both won big outside the conference.  Minnesota and Indiana are now both 3 – 0.  Is Brian looking to make a run at an undefeated team?  Indiana is the only loss on the 2nd ranked Wolverines record.  This slate of games also earned Michigan four more QWB points moving them closer the to the top spot.  Brian is going to make it interesting.

Two new teams out of ECFA squared off.  Florida defeated LSU 31 – 17.  Ed’s gearing up some big action in the Big House soon.  That’s going to be impressive.

The weekly Dirty Bird Electric Football game had a couple of newcomers as well.  The 1972 Browns defeating the 1970 Giants 21 – 17.

Finally, the big news of the week.  The Parisian Buzz Electric Football League has been playing games since September.  They are now ready for the postseason, and have entered all the games in the SCPC.  Billy Campbell and his son, Isaiah, run a six team league with teams competing in the SCPC 3.3 Box Stock division.  Their top dog right now is the Philadelphia Eagles checking in at # 28.  I believe Billy and Isaiah plan to do their play-off and then start another season.  I’m sure we’ll be seeing some Parisian Buzz pushing the top ten soon.  Here are the results they posted.

Broncos 23 Eagles 22

That was quite a week, but it didn’t create any movement in the top ten.  As mentioned, Michigan crept closer to the top spot, and Arizona State and Washington flip flopped.
