Morning Rundown : Three Random Numbers


Your newest BCS Standings are out. This week's top 8 is still the same as last week's top 8, meaning your Gators are still atop the pile. It's their 5th straight week as number 1. Florida had never been at the top of the rankings before this season, and now have tied Alabama for the most weeks at the top for an SEC team.


Two more random numbers to impress two more random people after the jump...


Jimmie Johnson gets his 4th career win at Phoenix, the most career NSCS wins at the track. In fact, he's won 4 of the last 5 races at Phoenix. And Mark Martin finishes 4th, so he's now 108 points back. Only twice under NASCAR's modern points system has a driver made up a points deficit with 1 race to go, and the biggest deficit overcome was 30 points. Book it. Done.


We were up all night crunching the numbers, and it seems that since Tom Brady took over as starter, the Patriots have converted 76.4 percent of the time on 4th and 2 (or less). But just 1-for-3 passing in such situations this year.
