As the NFL’s regular season draws to a close, fans are logging on in droves at NFL.com to vote for their favorite players to play in the year’s most pointless event – The 2014 NFL Pro Bowl.
I think that most of us reading this would agree that there’s no point to holding a game that there’s no point to winning. None of you go to Pro Bowl parties, do you? That’s what we thought…
But this year, the “Added Bonus” that the NFL front office people are throwing our way is that this year’s game will be “unconferenced”. If you don’t know what that means, that’s quite alright because it’s not a real word. Players will be drafted in what I can assume is sort of a schoolyard type of atmosphere and then it won’t be NFC vs. AFC at all. So I’m not exactly sure how they are going to work the scoring or name the teams, but then again I’m not sure about a lot of things surrounding the Pro Bowl. Continue reading

Up until now, we had been consulting our medical expert Dr. Kelly Brackett for his prognoses on NFL teams. Then we asked legendary movie odds-maker Sam “Ace” Rothstein for his thoughts. Now it’s your turn. That’s right, we’ve decided to take some of our observations about this past week in the NFL and open them up to the public in the form of poll questions. It’s not a new concept, but since nobody tends to ask the kind of questions we do, it promises to yield some interesting discussion.
1) Is Thursday Night Football a Conspiracy?

So for those of you who don’t know, the Washington State Cougars are bowl eligible for the first time since 2006; and are probably heading their first bowl game since 2003. That fact makes me extremely excited (warning: that post makes no sense).
Now the question for Coug fans becomes, which bowl game that we are probably going to see the team play in. Unfortunately, that question isn’t such an easy answer because of the fact that the Pac-12 has nine bowl eligible teams, and seven guaranteed bowl spots. And that makes us nervous that WSU fans nervous that 2013 will be a repeat of 2006.
The difference between 2013 and 2006 is Bill Moos.
That 2006 squad was left out of the bowls because Jim Sterk didn’t really campaign for a bowl spot, and that the 2006 squad went 0-3 in November — including a loss to UW in the Apple Cup. Speaking of the Apple Cup….
…that’s this Friday, and we will be going all in on our coverage in preparation for it.
Now onto the power rankings.

When a football team becomes a train wreck, much like the Florida Gators have become, sometimes the concept of “team” starts to show cracks. As we have been prone to do in this series, we find those cracks and expose them to you, the blog-reading public.
It seems that several such cracks have surfaced in Gainesville. It seems that Gator head coach Will Muschamp may be concerned about his future employment status as indicated by this conversation between Muschamp and a Gainesville-area staffing firm which was intercepted* by Sports Blog Movement.
*Legal Disclaimer – J-Dub and Meehan have a strange way of defining certain terms. “Intercepted” should be read as “completely fucking fabricated” by these two jamokes during yet another of their nights spent making Pine-Sol and Sterno shooters until 6 a.m. Despite that, we here at Sports Blog Movement would be willing to bet these guys probably aren’t far from the truth…
