SEC is 1st league to go 4 for 5 atop AP poll
Good luck, selection committee.
The first season of the College Football Playoff is a little more than halfway in the books and there are just four unbeaten teams left in FBS. Two play each other (No. 1 Mississippi State and No. 3 Mississippi). One is No. 2 Florida State, which has spent a good chunk of this season dancing around trap doors. The other is No. 23 Marshall, which plays one of the weakest schedules in the country and realistically has little chance of being part of the football final four.
Manning breaks Favre’s TD pass record
DENVER — Peyton Manning broke Brett Favre’s NFL record for touchdown passes with No. 509. He didn’t stop there, either.
Manning threw four TD passes in Denver’s 42-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night, two to Demaryius Thomas, one to Wes Welker and another to Emmanuel Sanders.

Thoughts on the 2014 World Series
One of the things I love about baseball as a sport is the overwhelming sense of history that accompanies the game. More than any other professional sport, baseball is bound to the ghosts of those who came before. We love comparing the greats of yesteryear to the rising stars of tomorrow – even through the inevitable alterations that come through time’s unending march.
Sixth Annual Ralph K. Thomas 8K Run / 2.5 Mile Walk / 1 Mile Fun Run
INDIAN ISLAND – The Penobscot Nation is hosting the Sixth Annual Ralph K. Thomas 8K run / 2.5 mile walk / 1 mile fun run on Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014. All proceeds from the race will go toward promoting diabetes prevention and awareness, as well as supporting various youth programs and running activities.
Diabetes affects almost 26 million people nationwide, and it disproportionally affects Native Americans. Native America adults are 2.3 times more likely to have a diagnosis of diabetes, and Native American youth have a diabetes rate that is nine times greater than their Caucasian peers. The Ralph K. Thomas Race aims to raise awareness through education and prevention initiatives to help foster the development of healthy lifestyles.
Mr. Ralph K. Thomas, a Penobscot tribal member, is an exemplary role model for diabetes prevention and overall health. As a gifted and passionate runner, he won many road races during his running career and was one of the most admired long distance runners of his day. He was inducted into the Maine Running Hall of Fame in 1989 and has attended the race every year in his honor.
Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 7
I figured that there was no way I could possibly top the 13-2 record I put up in Week 5. So of course, I promptly do ever-so-slightly better in Week 6 by putting up a 13-1-1 thanks to the Carolina/Cincinnati tie.
I honestly don’t know what’s happening. I’ve apparently been entering some sort of pundit fugue state when making my picks over the past two weeks. 26-3-1? How is that even possible? The only game I missed last week was Dallas/Seattle; hard to fault picking the Seahawks.
