Week 28.  Let’s start things off in the Legends II Tournament where the Cinderella story of the Detroit Lions ended as all such scenarios do the the Lions in any league.  It was just a fantasy.  The Cleveland Browns ended the Lions’ run.  With the win the Browns advance to the Legends’ Championship to face the winner of the AFL title game between Oakland and Buffalo.  The Lions sit at number 19 and now have to wait along with Charles’s 11th ranked Packers for a new tournament.  The Browns will go into the title game with a 3 – 1 record ranked # 40.  Oakland, 2 – 1 # 65 won’t move to far even with a championship run.  Buffalo is in the best shape at 6 – 1 # 14.  A couple more wins for Buffalo would land them solidly in the top ten.

The NMEFL continued play with Big Ten teams taking non-conference opponents.  All winners were from the Big Ten.  Illinois defeated Miami Fl. Purdue defeated Florida State, Wisconsin defeated Ol’Miss, Northwestern defeated Vanderbilt, and Penn State defeated Navy.  Two of the winners, Penn State and Northwestern, fell earlier in the year to Michigan.  These two results earned Michigan four more QWB points moving them to within two of the top spot.  If the right NMEFL teams take the field and win next week we’ll have a new number one team in the land.

ECFA had a pair of contests this week.  Gators can beat up Bulldogs was the lesson in game one with Florida soundly defeating Mississippi State 38 – 17.  Game two showed that a bunch of mad Bulldogs from Mississippi should not be trifled with.  Even by another pack of Bulldogs from Georgia.  Mississippi State bounced back to nip Georgia 30 – 27.  Ed has a bunch of teams in the SCPC, but as of now none with more than three games or above # 60.

Mike’s NJLMFL played two games as well.  El Paso and Orlando played the final game of round 2 in the Super Bowl Tournament.  El Paso won 24 – 14.  Next up will be the Wild Card round of sixteen teams with games being 3 Possession/30 Plays.  The first of these Wild Card games went to the Minnesota Vikings over the Charleston Pirates 30 – 17.  Chuck Foreman rushed for two touchdowns and Tommy Kramer threw for another.  Charleston’s Lawrence Tynes broke the NJLMFL record  with a 68 yard FG.

The Dream Season put the defending champs back on the field last week.  The ‘72 Dolphins are still undefeated after a 24 – 7 thumping of the Jets.  In addition the ‘86 Giants defeated the ‘82 Redskins 28 – 21, and the ‘89 49ers got past the ‘66 Packers 24 – 21.  The Jets and Skins join the Colts at 0 – 2 while the Dolphins match the Raiders with a 2 – 0 record.  No one is setting very high in the rankings yet, but the Dream Season dreams big, so stay tuned.

My MPANMMEFSL finally crowned its champion after a two year plus season.  It was a good game.  All I’ll say is that the Northome Bears defeated the Camp 53 Shays.  I’m working on photo montage of the game.  The win puts the Bears at 4 – 1, # 43 in the  rankings.  The Nine-man league won’t fire up again this season, but maybe the Bears will play a challenge game or two.

The Dirty Bird Electric Football of the week featured the 1970 Philadelphia Eagles and the 2011 New York Giants.  The Eagles proved themselves the better 28 – 24.  Phili is now 1 – 1.  The loss was the first game for G-men.

Two WMLMF games took place.  Egypt was 43 – 35 better than the Cherokee Nation, and the Faries pranced all over the Cadavers 34 – 7.

Finally, and best of all, welcome to the SCPC David Foster and the Big – 8.  Dave runs eleven teams: Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Iowa, Iowa St. Kansas, Kansas St. Nebraska, Notre Dame, Illinois, and Arkansas.  Multi-stop is his style of play.  The teams are 1978 rosters with a few exceptions.  A round robin schedule is used.  This is the third season for the Big-8.  The first two seasons were part of the Helmet Row Show – one of the inspirations for the SCPC.  In action this week Kansas St. defeated Kansas 21 – 7.  Oklahoma shutout Illinois 28 – 0, and Nebraska blanked Iowa by the same score.

Here’s the top ten with the only movement once again being Wittkop’s teams jostling based on QWB points.  There some team creeping ever closer though.:
