Spectacle of the Week

We've got coaches with their jobs on the line, the No. 1 teams in both halves of Division I and loads of conference title implications.

Spectacle of the Week

If last week's best spectacle was Phillies fans celebrating the National League pennant, then surely this week's winner is the DirecTV blimp that's been circling around Center City all day.

Seriously, though, there are a lot of good choices in this week's poll. No. 1 James Madison at Villanova deserves some serious consideration, and I heard yesterday there are still tickets available.

And here's something else to think about: Will Philip Fulmer or Tyrone Willingham lose his job first? Could Tennesse or Washington pull off the upset on Saturday night?
