Finding Football Fun

Football entertainment in the off-season is hard to come by - but Cold, Hard Football Facts has done it again with a relatively amusing and not-too-time-consuming (I know you are all honing your NCAA brackets right now anyway) football poll. Now I'm looking around the massive study space just outside of my university library office, and I can tell that those of you who are in college or grad school are probably very busy with pre-spring break work. So take this poll, my friends. It's a quiz you can't fail. And for the rest of us who are suckers with real jobs, who perhaps attempted to relive the college glory days over a few pints of green beer last night, take a five minute break from that job and poll it up.

I do love Fantasy Football Xtreme - if you haven't been to this site before, it's definitely worth your time. One of the many reasons to love the site is that Smitty is always coming up with solid fantasy articles, particularly now during the long, parched stretch of the NFL off-season. Check out 2008 Strength of Schedule for Running Backs. While the exact 2008 schedule hasn't been set yet, the opponents schedule has been set...so bring on the analysis! One interesting nugget: KC's opponents rank nearly 22nd (out of 32) against the run - does this bode well for Larry Johnson or what? While I of course hope the Broncos and others facing KC might beef up their run D before the 2008 season arrives, this is certainly something to chew on as you mull over RB rankings.

Curious about how the NFL draft will go at the end of next month? There are numerous places to look for mock drafts, but check out Ask The Commish's Top 2008 NFL Draft Prospects by Position.
