Sports: Athletic ContestsThis game means something to the rest of the football world, in that the winner will advance to the Pac-12 football championship. It amounts to a division championship, conference semi-final, and a path to the Rose Bowl. The Football championship will likely elude the winner, even if they win out as the Pac-12 champion. Group29 has been doing this for a long time, covering the UCLA-USC rivalry.

Sports: Athletic Contests

I think Coach Kill did get some credit. Certainly, there were lots of shots of him enjoying the moment. Nice hug by Jerry for Brady Hoke at midfield, "I have been here man, I feel your pain." The Gophers vs Wolverines was a little Ralphie vs Scut Farkus in there, I am sure. Heard some rumors of some Minnesota resident Wolverine fans who have proudly flown their big M flags for years now taking them down. Minnesota has been the nail to Michigan's hammer for a long time. Certainly the Little Brown Jug trophy has been held at Schembechler Hall for many years.

Sports: Athletic ContestsIt was time again for our group to pick the 35 teams for the 2013 College football season bowl games. 
The rules are simple (until you get to the tiebreaker part...). Simply pick the winners of more of this year's College Football Bowl Games than any other contestant and walk away with a reward so priceless, you don't have to declare it on your income taxes!

Sports: Athletic ContestsUCLA has missed the Pac-12 championship game even after mounting a furious comeback against ASU. It would have been their greatest of all time. USC is on a five game winning streak now that Lane Kiffin has been unceremoniously dumped at LAX. Ed Orgeron is the coach to beat.

Engineering: Things that are builtI picked up my order of Blackwing Pearl pencils. As advertised, they are in the middle of the Blackwing 602 and the Blackwing (The Paliomino Blackwing).

Over the last two years, the web site has expanded their offerings to include other pencil manufacturers.

Movie DiscussionsThe Group29 web site started with a bit of hubris, the premise that anyone could offer an opinion on movies and be a film critic. But the fact is that a true film critic has to be an accomplished writer, art lover, academic, and immerse oneself in the field.

Sports: Athletic ContestsFor only the second time in 14 contests, UCLA has defeated arch-rival USC. This time the Pac-12 Championship game was on the line, for both teams. The probably was the expected outcome when the Pac-12 South Division was formed. 

Is this a championship? Or are the division winners just representatives to the Championship?

Sports: Athletic ContestsIn nine years of previewing, this is the first time the UCLA (17) has been ranked higher that USC (21) in the polls coming into the game. Up to this point, the Bruins have been subject to machetes, rock to the scissors, and a 50-0 blowout. There was one lone victory in 2006.

Engineering: Things that are builtI found the slide rule that belonged to my dad. He became an engineer in the 1950s.  The internet has given me a lot of information about it. 

It is a Keuffel and Esser ( K+E  ) model number 4181-3. I found that was a plastic Log Log Duplex Decitrig. It must be from before 1962 when Keuffel and Esser changed all their model numbers. It is Made in U.S.A. - all plastic (trade name "Ivorite") stock, plastic cursor lens.
