College football’s National Champion will be decided on Saturday

Yes, you read that right. At the risk of eating my own words (not really; we’re talking about the SEC), I’m going to go ahead and call the winner of Saturday’s showdown between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs the defacto winner of the BCS National Championship.

An update on that whole MLB Playoffs thing

Well, this is awkward. After vowing to write a daily column deciphering the mystery that is the prediction and analysis of Major League Baseball’s second season, I somehow managed to fall off the map.
