The amount of leaderboards bloggers compete in is only limited by the amount of sports and topics they blog about.. For example, bloggers who post about the Jets are automatically entered into the “NFL,” “AFC EAST,” “JETS,” and “ALL SPORTS” leaderboards.

SportsBlog leaderboards are based on the amount of traffic posts in certain categories receive (it is not based on how much traffic a blog in general receives).

Bloggers are emailed at the end of each month with their final rankings, and the blog owner also receives a digital trophy on their profile if they place within the Top 3 of a category.

Bloggers are automatically entered into leaderboards that belong to the parent of the topics they write about.

The process works as follows:

SportsBlog moderators categorize each post a blogger makes down to the team level (e.g.: NFL / AFC EAST / JETS)

SportsBlog keeps track of how many unique visitors those categorized posts receive throughout the month

SportsBlog adds up all of the unique visitors a blogger receives to posts in each category each month (resetting on the 1st of each month)

The aggregate amount of unique visitors received that month determines a blogger’s rank in the relevant category

Bloggers can be in the running for multiple leaderboards each month

What is certain is that no one has ever watched college

football on a larger video display.

See

video of the installation here.

. Colossus consists of

four 30- by 63-feet custom-built screens suspended from a halo-shaped

truss and cage and makes use of 54 million LED lights. Weighing in at

700 tons, Colossus is the world’s largest outdoor, permanent,

four-sided, center-hung video display.

The game is the first of its kind to be played at the 150,000-seat

NASCAR venue — dubbed “the world’s largest football stadium” for the

event. 10.

Of course, none of the hard work that went into planning and

installation will be apparent to those attending the game.

MEMPHIS, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–What promises to be the largest live audience ever to attend a college

football game will also make history by watching the game, replays and

highlights on the world’s largest center-hung TV when the University of

Tennessee Volunteers take on the Virginia Tech Hokies in “the Battle at

Bristol” at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tenn., on Sept. The crowd is expected to break attendance records for a college

football game. Outstanding engineering and execution made this

project a success.”

Nicknamed “Colossus,” the display was installed by Memphis-based

Barnhart between January and April of this year. All that will

matter to the majority is they’ll have a better view of what’s happening

on the field, thanks to the colossal video display suspended above the

action.

The installation required careful engineering and surgical precision,

and Barnhart was hired by the general contractor for the job due to the

company’s experience and expertise in engineering, lifting and setting

difficult and large projects.

According to Barnhart project manager Tommy Thomasson, “This was a

triumph of engineering

When Your Father Lets You Down

According to credible news reports, JoePaterno had good reason to suspect that one of his assistant coaches was sexually abusing children, and he never called the police. Attend a football game in any American college town, and you’ll see local fans who never went to college, working class guys treating their wives and kids to game day at the ol’ college.

Until yesterday, the most beloved father figure in American college football was Joe Paterno. Tony is passionate about helping men, and women, understand psychology and human behavior to improve their own lives. Reach Tony at 773-852-2234, tony@menspsychology.com.

Maybe we can turn this into a learning moment for ourselves, because it happens to many of us. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to the victims.

Have we grown into the mature, adult, masculine men that we have a right to be? Or are we still acting out like boys?

Otherwise, we will “act out,” just like the boys on the Penn State campus, who are overturning cars because they have just learned that their “father” is really a deeply flawed man. Girls are everywhere. If you doubt the seriousness of all this, go to Google and read the news reports and the 23-page indictment by the Pennsylvania Attorney General. His ouster by the university’s board of trustees led to small-scale rioting, as passionate young Penn Staters, mostly young men, turned over cars and clashed with the campus police. In addition to editing and writing for MensPsychology.com, Tony helps train men at dating, attraction and career growth. The sad story of Joe Paterno offers us a lesson:. We’re learning and pursuing a career mission.

When we attend college as young men, football game day is a nexus all of the hope and possibility that lies ahead for us. This feeling stays with us for the rest of our lives. It will sear your soul when you learn about the abuse of young boys that occurred under Paterno’s watch. Everybody cheers for the athletes (gladiators) on the field who pummel each other in this violent, visceral sport in pursuit of victory. Psychologically, that’s exactly what has happened. The 84-year-old was unceremoniously fired as head coach of the Penn State University football team, where he had coached for 46 years.

Author’s Bio: 

As mature men, we can learn to “father ourselves.” Then, we no longer need to rely, psychologically, on fathers or father figures who are only human and who could let us down. A father or at least a father figure in our minds – the beloved old “Joe Pa” – has let us down.

In this instance, the downfall was particularly revolting. And when they do, it represents a chance for us to learn and become mature, grown up men. Watching news reports and hearing their chants – “Let Joe stay!” “Joe Pa must not go!” – I could feel their pain.

So where does that leave us? Where does that leave the young Penn Staters who are acting out, but who deep-down feel betrayed by a beloved father figure?

Tony Monterastelli, Editor-in-Chief, MensPsychology.com. He has an extensive background as a business journalist, newspaper reporter, and public relations executive. Even if we didn’t put on the helmet and pads for our school, most of us played a few downs with our friends during childhood, or we passed the football back-and-forth with our own fathers. Oh sure, he talked to other university officials about it, but nobody really did anything about it.

College football looms large in the lives of many American men. Going to college was a rite of passage for many of us, or even if we didn’t go, our parents wanted us to. And the sport cuts across lines of gender, race and class. There are parties. We got into college. We’re making friends. Our fathers let us down. The abuse continued. We are college football fans forever.

Their father has let them down
