I'll be doing a Reddit AMA today at 1:30pm EDT to help promote the Blogs with Balls conference in Toronto next weekend. Maybe this can help make up for the fact that I'm way behind on trying to answer reader e-mails or questions left in discussion threads. As for the conference itself, I'm appearing on a panel to discuss the use of sports analytics in the media; our old buddy Doug Farrar will also be there, on an NFL panel Friday. Link to come.
Auburn is the most unlikely contender ever to reach the BCS title game, but the Tigers are also hitting top speed at the right time to defend the SEC banner in Pasadena. Plus a new top 25, the Lowsman Trophy watch and the rest from the final regular-season weekend on campus.
