there would have to be some to wash away
EDIT: fixed to not scare people as much

I can't believe it's that time of year!! The particulars of league are setup as usual. It includes confidence points and we will be picking against the spread. Good luck, fellow M football junkies!

PS - Your moment of zen.
Per the Baltimore Sun, Maryland has settled its suit over exit fees for $31.3 million of the $52 million the ACC was asking.
The University of Maryland and the Atlantic Coast Conference ended their legal dispute Friday with an agreement under which the school will pay $31.3 million of the original $52 million exit fee the conference was demanding.
The settlement figure is the amount that the ACC already collected by withholding shared conference revenues as a sort of down payment on the larger fee.
That means that each side now can walk away.
It's time once again to play that annual game: WORST TO FIRST.
Every year for like N years in a row where N is about 15 or so now, an NFL team went from last place in its division to first place the following year. Last year it was the Eagles.
So here are last year's last-place division teams. Which of these 9 (two tied in NFC South) will be a division WINNER this year?
Buffalo (AFC East, 6-10)
Cleveland Browns (AFC North, 4-12)
Houston Texans (AFC South, 2-14)
Oakland Raiders (AFC West ,4-12)
Washington Redskins (NFC East, 3-13)
Minnesota Vikings (NFC North, 5-10-1)
Tampa Bay Buckaneers (NFC South, 4-12)
Atlanta Falcons (NFC South, 4-12)
St. Louis Rams (NFC West, 7-9)
The media's trendy pick is Tampa Bay, but, I mean, THE QB, really?. The only one that looks remotely credible to me, on this list, is Atlanta, but their division (New Orleans and Carolina and, uh, Tampa Bay) is still stacked. Maybe they all knock each other off and the Falcons squeak ahead. I also might be tempted to pick the Texans, based on a previous body of work, but again, THE QB, plus they really stank last year.
