    Who can help me choose a tablet? Right now, I have an iPhone (that's mine) and an iPad Mini (provided by work). I try to keep the work tablet to work stuff only. I also have a Fire HD8 that I use for streaming audio via BT (SiriusXM, Tune In, etc) and for reading on a Kindle. I do occasional...

I intend to sim the same tournament this year, and with the first CFP poll...

    Proposed NBA Play-In Tournament

    Rumor has it the NBA is considering a play-in tournament for the final two playoff seeds in each "conference." 7 seed would play the 8 seed with the 7 seed on the line. 9 seed would play the 10 seed, with the winner playing the loser of the 7/8 game for the 8 seed. I like the innovation, but...

So, I built one that I'll sim alongside the FCS playoffs (I'm already two rounds behind!). The field is the top 20 in the CFP poll and 4 unranked AQs (FAU, Boise...

    OT: RIP Great Alaska Shootout

    Sadly, after almost 40 years, this is the last year of the Great Alaska Shootout. The article linked below gives a million reasons it's folding, but as you'd guess, it mostly comes down to $. I have great memories of growing up, staying up late, and watching this tournament in Alaska every...

    CCSU in FCS Playoffs

    CCSU is the automatic qualifier from the NEC in the FCS playoffs! The last two seasons the NEC champion has faced off in the opening round against a lower tier CAA team, so a matchup at Stony Brook, Elon or New Hampshire/Delaware (assuming one gets an at large) is likely. The field will be...
