Scott’s Rule No. 42: The 2 best regular seasons in sports are baseball and college football. With the 162 game schedule, MLB enables teams to grow, as the season is as much about evolution as anything else. (See the Oakland A’s almost every year.) College Football is the diametrical opposite, with every game being crucial to winning a national title. I guess I’m a man of extremes, as I love the pacing of both seasons.
While we know there are a lot of excellent baseball bloggers, I don’t know of one good football blogger, so if you know of a quality one, please drop me an email or post the address in the comment section. If you are looking for the best college football preview, pick up Phil Steele’s, as it even trumps Sporting News and Street and Smith. Football handicapper Steele focuses his whole year on football and the mix of analysis and statistics is unsurpassed in his jam-packed preview.
Look out for my college football preview later this week.
