Yes...now I completely see where your coming from. I was more taking the huh...bernard king would look a little out of place on hackmans team from hoosiers.

MJW has bernard from tennessee.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Couldn't get the new standings up. Sorry, work's been killing me.

here's the homestretch:

tonight: new standings up; maybe a thunderdome or millionaire or two

friday night: impossible movie/music quiz reveal

saturday or sunday: the final Schwab Showdown questions will go up

monday: final reveal

here's a couple diamonds for football:

Name the last two Chiefs to lead the NFL in rushing for a year.

Between Jeff Hostetler's 4 year run and Rich Gannon's 5 year run, there were two QBs who were the Raiders passing leaders in 97 and 98. Name them.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

Chiefs -- Priest Holmes is one. I'm going to gamble that Marcus Allen and Larry Johnson would be too simple an answer and say The Nigerian Nightmare (Christian Okoye) is the other.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

never would have got weathers in a million years. figured he was out of the league 8 years ago. thought about both gordon and tavarez but figured gordon had too many years as a starter and too many injuries and thought tavarez was too young and didn't waste time thinking of his name.

didn't think of rogers but probably should have had him since i knew he was a reliever for a while. was extremely surprised that arthur rhodes was no good - but i guess i forgot that he came up as a starter.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

A note about the movie/music quiz:

if the answer calls for a movie or song and you just give the team name, rather than the movie/song title, you might not get credit.

using the jack black example, if you just answer Thunder, then it's obvious you're going for tropic thunder. but if you just answer "Bears", I'm not going to check his filmography for any movie title that contains the word Bear.

Troy Percival disappoints me, he didn't even break 700 and I thought he'd been around forever.

I thought Smoltz's time as a closer would've done it for him.

Only since the mid-90s. Plus he was out of baseball a couple of years ago.

Re: Sports Trivia Game: Schwab-Style College Bowl

REMINDER: send in your movie/music lists by 8pm tonight.

The final Schwab Showdown Quiz will go up tomorrow and with answers due Tuesday. Then we'll have final reveal/standings.

here's a couple diamonds, shaped like hearts in honor of Valentine's day:

Which active player has played in the most NFL playoff games?

Alltime playoff game leader is Jerry Rice. D.D. Lewis is second. One of the guys tied for third is a defensive player who played from 88-03. Name him.

(2 pts) Name the head coaches brett favre has had in the NFL.
