Six Overtime Big East Thriller

I think they look a little tired, don't you?

Last night I watched what has to be the most exciting, thrilling, exhausting, ridiculous, exhilarating, unbelievable basketball game I have ever seen in my life. If you didn’t see it for yourself or haven’t heard about it since then, late last night early this morning the Syracuse Orange defeated the UConn Huskies 3 hours and 46 minutes after the opening tip off, which finally ended at 1:22 AM Eastern Time. This is certainly something that can’t go unmentioned on our site so I’m putting up this post about it. Continue reading

2008 NFL Power Rankings (Week 6)

Okay, I realized it’s a little last minute, but I am getting this done before the first games kick off this week so it still counts. Plus I did say that I would put these up. But since these are late anyhow, I decided to have a little bit of fun with them, just to mix it up a bit. So instead of going through and deciding who should be ranked where, I simply made a formula to determine the rankings for me. This formula is by no means perfect, but I did find that it has the teams ranked at least close to where I would have ranked them on my own. The formula isn’t too terribly complex, but it’s complex enough that I don’t really feel like explaining it, so as an alternative I will just tell you that the three main components are win percentage, point differential (on a per game average), and a compilation of multiple professional power ranking. In the end, my formula gave me a “score” for each team and then I ranked them based on those points. Like I said, this formula isn’t perfect, the point scale won’t make a whole lot of since to anybody, so don’t put too much thought into it. I don’t think that the Titans are three times better than the Giants, these are just the numbers that the formula spit out. There are some things that I definitely want to change for future use of this formula, but for now I give you this:
