OVERRATED TEAMS 1. Nebraska Could be a BCS team, but it is hard to picture as a national title contender. The defense won't be as dominant without Ndamunkong Suh and the offense is inconsistent. The best part of the 100+ page football preview section of The Birmingham News.

Suppose I simply want to maximize the number of minutes my star player is in the game. When should I risk putting him back in the game after his nth foul? It’s a trick question: I shouldn’t bench him at all!

Yanking players from the game for extended periods due to foul trouble has always annoyed me. Foul trouble " The Leisure of the Theory Class Bumped to Front Page.

This is a crucial point. Much of the attention in the football world, in the past few years, has been on concussions—on diagnosing, managing, and preventing them—and on figuring out how many concussions a player can have before he should call it quits. But a football player’s real issue isn’t simply with repetitive concussive trauma. It is, as the concussion specialist Robert Cantu argues, with repetitive subconcussive trauma. It’s not just the handful of big hits that matter. It’s lots of little hits, too.

Seeing as we are in the middle of Meme Madness here at RockMNation, I thought I'd add an intellectual aura to justify our collective flight of fancy. That's right - they are seriously discussing memes at Harvard. As a bonus, the geeks among you will recognize the seminal work that is spoofed in the title of this talk.

Truehoop provides more evidence that individual stats in hoops can be misleading. If adjusted for the pace of the game, LeBron has better stats this year than Oscar Robertson had in 1962, the year of the triple-double average.

Top 5 in Big 12 better than anyone in Big Ten?

So says this DesMoines Register writer. And yes, for you nitpickers, this was in The Boy's links, but without comment. This also justifies my weekly bashing of rptgwb for putting Ohio State ahead...
