I realize I've been neglecting this thing lately, but the Phillies' romp through the playoffs has been taking up a lot of my time. I'll be able to get back to focusing on college sports over the next couple of weeks, including live coverage of Big East Men's Basketball Media Day at Madison Square Garden... Read more

Crunchy Numbers great and small

Since I'm not going to be at the coaches' luncheon tomorrow, I figured I'd combine all of this week's local games into one post. We start with the big boys in Division I. If you've voted in the Spectacle of the Week poll, you know that Penn State-Wisconsin is pulling away from the rest of the field... Read more

Crunchy Numbers a few days early

What a wild weekend in college football, and what a successful weekend for the region's teams. At the I-A level, six of the top 25 teams in the AP poll lost, leading to Penn State's leap to the No. 6 spot in the AP and Coaches polls. At the I-AA level, No. 1 Villanova upset Richmond, with Chris Whitney... Read more

Just my luck. Ever since Temple's schedule came out, I had the Western Michigan game circled as the one I knew I could get to this season. But then the Sports Network's I-AA Top 25 came out Monday afternoon, and Richmond was ranked No. 1. As in, the team that's coming to Villanova on Saturday. So... Read more

This week's Football Crunchy Numbers

Sorry it took me so long to get this up; I'm still decompressing from last night's wild Eagles game. After reading all about DeSean Jackson's premature touchdown celebration, I came across some big news on the local college scene. Villanova linebacker Mike Holland and running back Luca Ragone have been... Read more

Before I start this week's post, I just want to point out something important from today's Inquirer that has nothing at all to do with college sports. You might have seen by now that the sports section has a new columnist, John Gonzalez, who riffs on the region's sporting scene every day on page 2. He... Read more

Here we go again. This week's version is a lot more detailed than before, because I felt like adding some new features. You'll see each local team's ranking from this week and last week, who they played last week and who they're playing this week. Last week's results include the Sagarin ranking for... Read more

First of all, be sure to read the season preview stories in today's Inquirer and Daily News; you can get to them via the headlines list a bit down the page from here. Second, I'm taking nominations for this week's Spectacle of the Week poll. My contributions are Michigan State-Cal, Alabama-Clemson (which... Read more

Is it really football season?

Monday, August 25, 2008, 9:28 PM
I guess it is. Though I find it really hard to believe that the first games of the season kick off in only 72 hours. After two exhilarating weeks spent watching the Olympics, we dive headfirst right into that most American of all sports. That means it's time to change the blog banner to reflect the... Read more
