Mathematician Wanted:

The standings calculator for the NFL Playoffs Pick 'Em is struggling. It's having trouble dealing with the widespread occurrence of negative values due to the outcome of last weekend's Chiefs game. The only way to get an accurate tabulation at this point is with a north Florida hand count.

Special thanks to Andy Reid, the sporting nation's Ambien Walrus, for helping create this situation.

When you've got game changing, versatile talents like Cam Newton and Christian McCaffrey on your roster, you want a dynamic, innovative thinker to run your offense.

So the Panthers hired Norv Turner.

New Carolina Hurricanes majority owner (61% stake), Thomas Dundon to be formally introduced at noon eastern today.

Nice win in DC for the new owner last night. Dundon was in attendance for the Clemson/NC State game last night. Nice win for the woofies last night as well.

Gee, I wonder why?

The teaser for this ESPN article asks, "[Jack] Morris had a long career but was never dominant. What does that mean for pitchers like Mike Mussina and Curt Schilling making it to Cooperstown?" and all I can think is, "I don't know, given that they were about twice as good as him*, should it matter at all?"

* And I am being charitable.

Beaverboard, I believe I had 250 points, no need to calculate my score. :)

It's amazing how often this site's users rely on a Floridian to count accurately. Did 2000 teach you nothing?

Who is Chad, and why did they hang him?

That Clemson/NC State game made me sick.Nothing worse for me than losing to NC State.
