Hello there,
I am Peter Robert Casey and I am a basketball columnist. I have initiated an idea to create a sports blogroll where bloggers from all sports disciplines could participate. All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same. That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
Please let me know if you would be interested.

Your's in Hoops,

query - were there two 2 point conversions in the Penn State game?

J Mays said...

PSUgirl--

Yes there were. Penn State made a successful 2-pt. conversion. It would appear that Boise State accomplished it twice but actually it was a safety for them. The Broncos got 2 FGs, 2 TDs, 2 XPs, and a safety for 22 points.

I did defensive statistics last year but neglected them this year because they are perceived by many as the "lesser" statistics. Naturally, offense rules all to most people (excluding me). I believe I documented safeties in 2007 but there were none throughout the playoff. That came back to bite me already this year.

ah, now I see it.
