It was another quiet week in the SCPC, but not an insignificant one. Ten games from five different leagues were entered in week 28. A couple of sleeping giants came out of hibernation, and look to be ready to make their move as the culmination of the first SCPC, the SCBCS, draws ever closer.

Up in Northern Michigan the NMEFL will be taking a little break. One game that was previously missed in the SCPC standings has been entered. In that contest Purdue defeated Tennessee 17 – 10. The win put the Boilermakers at 2-1 in non-conference play. In what I have as the first game of Brian’s fourth and final week of non-conference action the Northwestern Wildcats became the Big Ten’s first four win team with a 15 – 13 win over Alabama. Turnovers and a safety doomed the Tide. NWU is now 4-0 and sit at # 110. Michigan remains the NMEFL’s top team at 3-0 # 96. Once Brain enters Big Ten play the top teams will make some noise at the top of the rankings and in the race for SCBCS bids.

To the West, in the WMLMF, the first of Al’s two conference championships was played. The Zombies from New Zealand took care of the Canadians 17 – 14. The Zombies have been playing great defense lately, but will have to face either the Rams or Cows in the Gumbo Bowl. The New Zealand club is now Al’s top ranked team at 5-2 #21. Both the Rams, #28, and Cows, #31,  are 6-0 though. Look for the winner of that game to jump way up near the top ten. The Gumbo Bowl Champion is sure to be a top five team and contend for a SCBCS game.

Sugg’s Dream Season had just one game this week. The 1989 San Fransisco 49ers defeated the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21 – 14. Both teams are now 4-2, but will struggle to compete against the top Dream Teams and move on in the tournament. The Dolphins, Steelers, and Packers are all still undefeated. The Raiders, Colts, Bears, and Rams all have just one loss. All seven of these teams remain in the running for a SCBCS bid.

Ed’s College Football Association is back on track with two games this week. SMU defeated Texas Tech 17 – 14. The Mustangs are now 4-3. The Red Raiders drop to 3-4. The Baylor Bears got a narrow overtime win over the Rice Owls 22 – 21. RG3 ran for 116 and scored. Owl tight end, Howton, scored all three Rice touchdowns. Rice is 1-6. Baylor moves to 5-2 and remains Ed’s top ranked team at #19. The Bears, along with Arkansas, 4-1, look to be ECFA’s two best chances at SCBCS glory.

The most interesting action of the week occurred in the WLAPF where Chris LeMay played four games. The Cowboys ran their record to 5-5, officially completing their SCPC ten game schedule and eliminating themselves from postseason eligibility. A 20 – 6 loss to Baltimore did the Cowboys in. They ended their season on an up note however with a 9 – 6 win over Cleveland. Cleveland also lost to Oakland by one point, 19 – 18, and the Raiders won a second game over Birmingham 29 – 25. When the WLAPF dust settled Dallas was done and out at 5-5, Baltimore moved to 3-2, Cleveland dropped to 4-4, and Oakland now sits at 5-4. With all that back and forth mediocrity going on the big winners were the New York Jets who have among their ten wins victories over both Dallas and Oakland. The QWBP earned on the behalf of New York via the Cowboy and Raider wins move the Jets into the #2 spot in the rankings. They are now just 3 points behind the long standing #1 San Francisco 49ers of Mike Veliky. If the Raiders can win their final, and any other WLAPF team on the Jets’ schedule wins next week…………..we’ll have a new #1!

With the SCPC season one nearing it’s end, and the rankings heating up, the Rules Committee has been discussing the details of the postseason. We are working on trophies and/or prizes for the best solitaire teams in each division and the overall champion. At the end of the regular season, June 30th, the top overall team, and the top team in each division will be recognized. The SCPC Postseason will be comprised of four Solitaire Coaches Bowl Series Championship Games pairing the top teams in each of the four SCPC divisions. In addition, bowl eligible teams that do not qualify for one of the four BCS games will be allowed to play in a non-BCS bowl game as determined by their owner. Be on the lookout for the next edition of Solitaire Illustrated for more information.

The top ten, as well as the rankings and standings in each division are as follows:
