Crunchy Numbers Week 2

Before we get started, I have a favor to ask.

I know many of the local small-college SIDs read this blog. I am not going to be at the coaches luncheon tomorrow, and while I'm pretty sure I'll be covered for Penn and Villanova, if anyone else does a recording of what's said please let me know. Thanks.

Now for the regularly scheduled programming.
