What I'll Be Watching

College football starts tonight with about five Division II matchups. I enjoy following the FCS, D2, D3, and the NAIA during the playoffs, but I simply don't have the time to follow them much during the regular season. This is absolutely not a knock on these leagues -- they play very exciting football. I just have too many other commitments. If only I could get paid to do this hobby of mine.

FBS kickoff is still a week away. As usual, opening week is mostly a lot of huge mismatches. Fortunately, there are still several good matchups to keep things interesting. Here are some of the better ones I'm very much looking forward to:

Pittsburgh - Utah
Washington - BYU
Cincinnati - Fresno State
LSU - North Carolina
Oregon State - TCU
Boise State - Virginia Tech

Atomic Football 2010 Update

While I haven't posted in some time, it doesn't mean that I haven't been putting some work into Atomic Football. The "offseason" ends around Memorial Day; after that, there is plenty to do to get ready for the next season.

Much of what would be a huge ordeal is made easier by Peter Wolfe and his minions who comb the web for conference/division changes and upcoming schedules. Thanks, Peter.

There has been an assortment of minor additions and improvements to Atomic Football this year, along with several changes to improve my process for the weekly updates.

One exciting new addition is NFL predictions. While I do not yet post them to the website, they can be found on Prediction Tracker .
