8 weeks 2 days remaining

Another successful week of SCPC action is in the books.  Last week I compared our total game and team numbers to the season I totals.  All comparisons show growth for th SCPC in season II.  Let’s look at post season eligibility.  In season I we had a total of 24 teams eligible for the post-season.  Only five bowl games were played though; the four division championship bowls and one challenge bowl. As noted above we have 15 bowl eligible teams as of now, and another 23 with either four or five wins.  It’s shaping up to be a much bigger post-season in season II.  To the action.

.

Wittkop always gets the first game in each week.  His NMEFL has to be getting close to completing a second conference schedule.  The PAC-10 & Michigan wrapped up long ago and still dominate the top ten with Michigan piling up more and more QWB Points each week to stretch their now sizable lead on everyone else.  Hold the phone though.  Will Michigan’s closest competition be another NMELF team?  This week Ohio State defeated Michigan State 28 – 14, Minnesota got by Nebraska 28 – 24, Iowa bested Penn State 24 – 10, and Wisconsin was a field goal better than Illinois, 16 – 13.  Minnesota is now 5 – 0 and has risen to number 35 in the rankings.  Five more games, if won, would surely put the Gophers in a place to at least make Michigan nervous.

Two more NJLMFL quarter final games this week narrowed the field again.  San Diego and Tennessee held a track meet that the Chargers won 46 – 30, and the Los Angeles Rams may have become the odds on favorite to win it all with a dominating, 27 – 6 win over San Francisco.  The Rams will now face El Paso in the NFC and the Chargers will see Miami in the AFC.  The winners will play for the title.

Big – 8 action is really heating up.  It’s been Nebraska, Missouri, and Oklahoma State vying for the top spot all season.  Last week OSU lost a close one to Mizzu.  This week OSU helped Mizzu out big time as they shut down the Cornhuskers in a 14 – 2 win.  In other action Arkansas defeated Kansas, Iowa shutout Illinois, and Notre Dame then defeated Iowa.  Finally, Missouri didn’t waste the opportunity OSU gave them as they obliviated Kansas State 63 – 0!    Missouri and Nebraska are now in position to bring the first shake up to the top ten in many many weeks.  The Wittkop stranglehold on the rankings will end if and when either team picks up another win.  These two powerhouses will still face off head-to-head at some point as well.  The winner will sitting right in Michigans back yard.  Don’t count Oklahoma State out either.  Having played both Nebraska and Missouri and having just one loss means if they can run the table there could suddenly be three Big 8 teams in the top five.

The Team-Go-Round Challenge is picking up steam.  This week my Minnesota Gophers walloped LeMay’s Montreal squad 35 – 14.  Both McLaughlin and I intend to play more games in the coming weeks.  Maybe someone will emerge and challenge.  Anyone else wanting a piece of the action let us know.

Speaking of McLaughlin, the DBEFL game of the week saw the 2013 Jets victorious, 17 – 7, over the 1987 St. Louis Cardinals.  It’s still the 2012 Falcons waiting to play their final game to get back into the top ten that are the leagues best chance at an SCPC championship.  I’m thinking Andy is going to see who has the most wins at season’s end and have the Dirty Birds play them in order to maximize the QWB Points opportunity for the Falcons.  It’s a good plan.

Andy was a late comer to season to the SCPC in Season I.  In much the same fashion look for Sandfoot to get going in the coming weeks.  After joining season I late Andy has been a consistent participant in season II, and could have teams factor in down the stretch.  I think it will be much the same with Sandfoot.  Especially with the new rollover rule in place.  We’re looking forward to another new face in the SCPC family.

That’s it.   Here’s the top ten that once again has no movement.  Just Michigan stretching their lead out even more.  Stay tuned though.  Change is on the horizon.

A few more housekeeping notes.  The rankings page is fixed up now so you can again go through the pages at the bottom of the table by clicking on the options.  For some reason the arrows to sort the columns are not visible, but the column sort still works.  Just click on the column heading.

Some how the overall final rankings from season I did not get saved.  I do have the correct top ten though.  Not much, if anything changed below that anyway.  I’ll keep looking.  Either way, keep in mind the season I rankings available on the SCPC home page are the final regular season rankings not the final rankings after bowl games were entered.

The Rams became the NJLMFL team to beat after defeating San Francisco.
