Quote of the day
"Today was probably some of the most fun we've had in a while." -- Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey, after beating the Yankees 4-3 in Fenway Park
Notre Dame is moving to the ACC. UConn may be getting its wish. I think that Connecticut has secretly been hoping that the ACC would add Notre Dame, thereby creating a league with an odd number of teams (15) and giving the ACC an impetus to seek one more team. Working against that is that Notre Dame football is not moving to the ACC. But the Irish have committed to play five football games per year against ACC teams, so maybe that’s not such a distinction from a scheduling standpoint. We’ll see.
If you look at the Football Pickoff standings today, they’ll look different than they did yesterday. I’m reprogramming the standings process to be more automated, and discovered yesterday that the points for doubled games and bonus points were not being properly reflected in the standings – even though they were accurately calculated on each individual recap page.
If you’re playing any of the affiliated salary cap football games, be aware that the weekly point pages are now regularly updated after each game date. Look for the “Weekly Points” links in the football section of the left menu. For example, Fireleague points are shown here.
