Scotland's UEFA Coefficient: My Work Here Is Done

I have stopped updating the saga of Scotland's UEFA coefficient on this blog. 

I started blogging on the subject six years ago, when Scotland was ranked 23rd in Europe. I started tracking their progress more closely five years ago, when they had dropped to 25th.

Well, they enter this year's tournaments in 9th place, and there's an entire Twitter account devoted to following the ups and downs of the coefficient.

I was more interested in tracking the rise to respectability than I am in tracking a fall, a stable situation, or clawing out a few more places in the rankings. And fortunately, I can read other people's work on that now.

So I will sit back and read about today's draws without worrying how to turn them into a blog post.
