Kumbaya . . . A little divine guidance would be appreciated right now. I'm experiencing the FLN version of the Sports Illustrated jinx.  For my younger readers, Sports Illustrated was basically the print version of ESPN SportsCenter in its' day.  There was a really funny correlation about being the Cover person for the magazine and the likelihood they would have a down year after being profiled as the main feature. It seems whoever I rank 16-25 ends up losing the next week.  When I said last week that there were 30-35 teams that could be ranked I wasn't kidding because they keep trading wins and losses.  Maybe you should hope you are ranked 14th or higher, or fall into the Also Considered territory, it's a LOT safer there. https://youtu.be/bYJMtn6IJeE I think I used The Seekers once l
