My computer attempted a swan dive off the desk last night, putting it in the hospital for the next couple of days, so my posting ability might be hampered slightly. However, I will persevere and continue working to find good topics for the blog and better psychiatrists for my suicide-attempting Lenovo.
Our drop in the polls was not as life-threatening as originally feared. Placing 12th in the AP and 13th in the Coaches' means that ND should enter Big East play very close to or just inside the top 10. Ohio State moves up to 21st and Carolina is still unanimous.
Not a whole lot of news beyond that. The Cubs are still interested in Jake Peavy and the Broncos lost another running back for the season (that's six!), but you don't really care about that, do you?
In terms of basketball, nothing big tonight. Tomorrow, West Virginia has a shot to knock off Davidson and Texas plays Villanova in an interesting matchup. The first game will help our RPI and reputation if West Virginia wins. RPI not as much an issue in the second, but I will selfishly cheer for Texas so we can hop back over the Wildcats in the Coaches Poll. Additionally, a little boost to our OOC strength of schedule is always nice.
No more really good games until Saturday, when Georgetown and Memphis square off, but we will have Boston University to deal with then. The Terriers will always have a special place in my heart due to their being my team of choice on the XBox. 3 virtual national titles and 4 pretend national player of the year awards later, they're still not that great in real life.
