Week 3 NFL Rankings
Posted Tuesday, September 27, at 1:00 PM
Somehow, last week, I completely neglected posting a Week 2 Ranking. I am not entirely sure why it skipped my mind but I do apologize. With that being said there is my Week 3 NFL Rankings. Next Sunday will be my first college football Top 25. Rankings...

Week 17 General Election Projection
Posted Sunday, September 25, at 3:15 PM

Another week with really no change. It does appear at this time that Trump's surge has stalled as only one delegate moved and that was Main's District 2 that went from lean to likely. With the first debate taking place on Monday depending on who is seen as the window (by the voters not the media) we should not really see any kind of movement (if any) until Friday, possibly not until the following Monday...

Week 16 General Election Projection
Posted Sunday, September 18, at 3:38 PM

Another week has passed us by and Donald Trump continues to gain ground on Clinton. Just as I stated after Clinton took a huge lead after the conventions it is way too early to be reading to much into the polls. The latter part of the month was good to Trump, despite his many gaffes, because the Clinton team felt it better just to stay out of his way instead of pressing on him. ...

Week 1 NFL Rankings
Posted Tuesday, September 13, at 3:30 PM

Well the first week saw some exciting games but also saw more questions than answers. Will the Cowboys truly survive without Romo and a rookie starting? How bad is Washington? And many more. Rankings 1. New England Patriots/1-0 For now, it appears that the Patriots truly are a team where if someone is injured or suspended, it's next person up. ...

Week 15 General Election Projection
Posted Saturday, September 10, at 8:14 PM

This update is coming a little later in the day today than I had originally wanted. Late yesterday there was a data dump as a new pollster was added to the mix. Google Consumer Surveys. I will be honest I know next to nothing about the group but I will keep an eye on them. The group seems to be decent as the polls tend to agree mostly with other polls...

Week 14 General Election Projection

Click the map to create your own at 270toWin.com http://www.270towin.com/maps/QRgO2 Mississippi moves from Likely to Safe for Trump Nebraska is a state worth watching. Three polls have been released two with Trump leading by 6 and 7 and one showing Clinton up by 3. This could be hinting at Clinton winning the 3rd District in the state which includes Omaha and potentially also the Second District which includes Lincoln...

Big Brother Week 9 Recap and Updates
Posted Thursday, September 1, at 4:49 PM

I was out of town last week and have not watched the feeds this week. However, I am still able to update. Last week Victor was evicted by a 2-1 vote. The next competition was an endurance comp not only involving the players still in the house but between the five juror members. ...

Week 12 General Election Projection
Posted Friday, August 19, at 6:51 PM

A couple of updates going into this week. I have moved Virginia and Pennsylvania from the toss up states as Clinton has large enough leads at this point for them to be solidly in her corner. This could change, but right now they are no longer toss ups. Those states moving into the toss ups are Missouri and South Carolina. South Carolina is still iffy as a toss up state with just a few polls...

Big Brother Week 8 Recap and Updates
Posted Thursday, August 18, at 2:45 PM

Unfortunately, the HOH competition from last week was not on feeds but it has been quite a week in the house. Victor won Head of Household for the second week in a row (and two out of three HOH). Immediately he and Paul agreed that now was the time to get either Paulie or Corey out. Victor has his sights on Paulie because Paulie backdoored Victor and got him evicted...

Big Brother Week 7 Recaps and Updates
Posted Thursday, August 11, at 12:22 PM

Paulie has been in control of the house for most of the season. It was originally Frank but after Da flipped the house on him, Paulie took over and since that point every player that has been voted out has been because of Paulie. This week could change all of that as Natalie (of all people) has started an insurrection in the house, but more on that later...

Week 10 General Election Projection
Posted Friday, August 5, at 5:14 PM

In an effort to show where this race really is I have adjusted how I do the maps. The standard of percentages remains: anything under 5% is a lean, between 5 and 15% is likely and anything over 15% is safe. I am depending more on 538than other websites simply because they do include all polls. ...

Big Brother Week 6 Recap and Update
Posted Thursday, August 4, at 3:25 PM

Now that I am back to the swing of things and fully back to watching the Big Brother feeds this week did have some suspense even with Frank gone on mostly lies by Da'Vonne, but it appears her stay in the house may be over. The feeds have been shut down for the rest of the day so we will not fully find out who is going home until tonight's show. It should be Da but things can and have changed on eviction day...

Pre-Season NFL Rankings
Posted Sunday, July 31, at 12:31 PM

Today I enter into the NFL. I will admit freely that I am not a huge fan of the NFL. Honestly the only thing that keeps me watching is Fantasy Football. For most of my life I have not had a favorite team. I grew up initially with the St. Louis Cardinals but they moved to Phoenix. In the 90s my favorite city got another NFL team, the Rams. The Rams even won a Super Bowl with a backup QB...

Pre-Season College Football Ranking
Posted Saturday, July 30, at 12:38 PM

Today I am releasing my first look at the college landscape a couple of months before the season begins. I will do my rankings different than what is commonly seen. Until late October I will not rank the teams I believe will make the playoff. So no matter how I have them posted until that time do not put too much stock into them they are unranked but teams I believe will make the playoff...

Big Brother Week 5 Recap and Update
Posted Thursday, July 28, at 6:27 PM

I need to start this off with an apology. Over the last two weeks I have had my attention on other things. Last week was the Republican National Convention (coupled with a trip to Nebraska) and this week is the Democratic National Convention. Add all those together and I haven't watched a bit of Big Brother. I will get back on track starting tonight after Hillary's speech. So a quick update and then rankings...

Big Brother Week 3 Recap and Update
Posted Thursday, July 14, at 4:26 PM

So this week has been a rollercoaster on the feeds. The only thing that is for sure is that the majority of the house now want Frank out of the house as his rough housing went to far with Da'Vonne. He threw his game off the rails but a couple of the house mates have helped but stretching the truth about what is going on. ...

Week 8 General Election Projection
Posted Friday, July 8, at 10:19 PM

Click the map to create your own at 270toWin.com Several new polls in different states came out this week and a very clear trend is appearing. Trump is losing ground. In order for him to have a chance of beating Clinton he would at the very least need to pick up Ohio, Florida, and North Carolina and not loose any states...
