This is basically my last week of doing the rankings. Next weekend I’ll do much the similar background work but turn my attention to individual NCAA match-ups and team stats.

2013 was a memorable season. Without a truly dominant team we were all left to wonder who’d survive to the national championship. Outside of a few Alabama fans, everyone in the country thinks Florida State and Auburn are the two teams most deserving to play for the the trophy.
Meanwhile, nearly half of the schools in college football made themselves eligible for a bowl and are rewarded with some extra days of practice and a made-for-tv exhibition game. They too will play for a trophy. Even if the trophy is just a logo. Or a potato.
What’s Wrong With Bowls?
One thing that works for me as a parent is creating [hopefully] memorable experiences. I’m not great in the day-to-day. But I feel like I’m pretty decent when I can do something special with my kids.
We used yesterday’s Wooden Legacy Finals in Anaheim as an excuse to hang out together for twelve hours. And as much as I’d like to say that I had some sort of a grand plan to make the most out of our day together, I really didn’t. I just knew we were going to spend time together and over the course of that I hoped we’d enjoy some bonding time and get past our normal small talk.
Steve Fisher – A Living Legend
Yesterday, on a whim, I decided to drive up to Fullerton to watch San Diego State take on Creighton in the Wooden Legacy semifinals.
If there is any doubt that college football surpasses the NFL in
the psyche of the American people, all doubt was set aside yesterday as CFB experienced it’s most exciting Saturday of the season.
4 of the top 25 teams fell to lesser opponents including 2 of the top 5 in Oregon and Baylor.
