Link of the Day: Stewart Mandel on Computers and the BCS

We’re a little light on the updates today, but we’ll have something special for you later this evening or tomorrow morning: an interview with Jimmy Traina of SI.com’s Hot Clicks.

As a preview, I want to highlight a great line a few minutes ago in a story that I found while making my way towards today’s Hot Clicks (starring the lovely Minka Kelly). The line is from SI.com college football Stewart Mandel and sounds like the kind of observation we’d hear in a Jerry Seinfeld stand-up routine.

We entrust computers to protect our credit card information, deliver important documents and identify potential dating partners — but to evaluate football teams? Now that makes us leery.

The quote is from this week’s mailbag and comes during a discussion of the Iowa Hawkeyes’ surprising (to some) jump to #4 in the most recent BCS polls. He also discusses why too many people are reserving a spot at the Downtown Athletic Club for Tim Tebow, despite Tebow’s underwhelming performance to date.

Here are a few other random links to satiate your sports blog appetite since we aren’t delivering quite as many goods today:

  2. The Green Somke company has great customer service and that is wheregreat ends. This E-Cigarrete is not recommended in any way. It is poorly designed and it will be defective before you get to know how to use it. Let me explain what I men by design flaw, on the tip of this cigarrete there is a Air Flow Sensor, when you inhale air flows thru it and it work like a switch it will turn on the battery power and the heating element in the cartrige will heat up causing steam. The problem with this design is that the forementioned air flow passes thru this switch and also the battery before it reaches the cartrige, this will create condensation, water is a conductive of electricity, so eventually the Airflow Switch and the battery will short out rendering the device useless.Don’t believe me? Go and buy it and experience it yourself.
