A Wild Week and Not on the Field
Most of the action last week took place off the field - Hurricane Sandy came through and knocked us for a loop - some games moved to Saturday, some Sunday, some Monday and some were even moved to the week before Thanksgiving. Once again things are put into perspective. But, as one politician said, it helps to try to get back to normalcy as soon as possible, even if you don't have power, cable, internet etc. So indeed, there were games played without much fanfare. The teams in the Top Ten who played won their games and I don't expect any changes in the Poll. But there are so many important games left to be played before and on Thanksgiving. The Playoffs hopefully will be settled early on Turkey Day. We then begin the Second Season.
