With the close of STAT BOX STORIES Week 7, a lot of exciting things are happening here at the blog. The beginning of the week saw the announcement of the BOWL BLITZ INVITATIONAL, a community project organized by this site to try and get entries for every single Bowl Game of the 2011-2012 NCAA bowl season. For more information–and to see which Bowl Games are still looking for contributors to cover them–visit the organizing forum post at The Gaming Tailgate here.
As a result of the beginning of the BOWL BLITZ INVITATIONAL, we got more entries than usual. Here’s the quick recap:
Monday, December 12th: Vancouver Canucks at Toronto Maple Leafs in NHL 12
Tuesday, December 13th: Aston Villa hosts Liverpool in FIFA 12
Wednesday, December 14th: 2011 New Mexico Bowl — Temple Owls at Wyoming Cowboys in NCAA Football 12
Thursday, December 15th: Pittsburgh Steelers at San Francisco 49ers in Madden NFL 12 Online Team Play
Expect the coming weeks to be just as busy here at STAT BOX STORIES as Bowl Games continue to be played both in real life and in NCAA Football 12 by members of this blog project community. Next week will be the last “normal” week of entries here at the site, as the week of December 25th, 2011 and the week of January 1st, 2012 will be solely filled with entries using NCAA Football 12.
But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves; here’s a look at Week 8 in STAT BOX STORIES:
Monday, December 19th
USA hosts Mexico
Tuesday, December 20th
2011 MAACO Las Vegas Bowl
Arizona State at Boise State
Wednesday, December 21st
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
Thursday, December 22nd
Buffalo Sabres at Ottawa Senators
Be sure to come back next week for another set of STAT BOX STORIES entries as we get into the 8th week of this series! This promises to be one of the busiest weeks of the blog project so far, so you won’t want to miss a single day of the action!
