PFCC Week 12 Wrap: Jerry Bailey has Something that You Don't

by: exRegionalWeenie December 1, 2017


All of us want it but only one of us can have it. I'm referring to first place in Dirty Dawg. And right now (following NFL Week 12's Thanksgiving weekend games), Jerry Bailey of Suwanee, GA, has it...and the rest of us don't. Nice job, Jerry!

So, while we congratulate Jerry right now, we also warn him not to get too comfy because there are a few players who could yank that first-place dawg bone right outta his mouth in a heartbeat. Brian Boyd is in second place, just 4 points behind Jerry. Tina Fausey is just one more point behind and even fourth place's Brandon Bigelbach is only 10 points out of first place.

Those Top 4 players listed above are separating themselves from the rest of the pack as there's more than a 30 point gap before you get to fifth place (Tim Oram). The rest of the Top 10 include Judith Bradberry, Anthony Cavallucci, Jeff Graschel, Albert Greenhut and Asam Michael. Actually, we'll add Carol Overton to that list because she's tied with Asam for 10th place.


Jerry Bailey owns something that you don't - first place in PFCC/NFL.


Top Performers of Week 12
Scores were pretty high across the board last week as there weren't many big upsets in the NFL. The best score by far belonged to long-time Dawg Marty Mullen of Brunswick, OH. He was 14-1 with a stellar 114 points! Marty currrently excels at Dirty Dawg but we hear that he was quite the softball coach back in the day. Two guys were tied for second place with 100 points - Jonathan Guseman of Clayhole, KY, and John Schmidt of Peachtree City, GA. Next in line was... well, forget that, I'm not naming each player because we had TWENTY-SIX people who scored in the 90's.


Week 12 Studs: These two guys and Marty Mullen.



Bottom Feeders
In case you wondered "Who screwed the pooch this week?", I have the answer. It was Nicole Ventimiglia of Eastpointe, Michigan, who went 8-7 with 14 points. We've seen far worse scores at the bottom of the weekly standings, but still, Nicole, what gives?

PUBLIC SERVICE ALERT: We suggest that tests be conducted for radon and/or lead paint at the Ventimiglia household in Eastpointe, Michigan. Why? Because the next-worst score last week belonged to Jacob Ventimiglia, who, just like Nicole, resides in Eastpointe, Michigan.

Group Standings
No changes occurred among the top teams in the Group Standings last week. The Hailraisers still have a commanding lead over the second place Harvey Crusaders. We're putting the Hailraisers on Upset Alert for next week, though, as these self-proclaimed Penn Staters adjust to life without their Offensive Coordinator who departed for the head coach job at Mississippi State. Next in line are The Juice is Loose and the BoomerBacks, in third and fourth place, respectively. Fearsome Flea Flickers round out the Top 5.


And now it's on to DECEMBER football. Good luck!

JV Pacing CFCC Field at Blowout Pause

by: Sugar (November 28, 2017)


What has become of us? For the second week in a row we find Johnny Vegas at the top of the dirty-dawg CFCC standings and he will hold that position heading into the annual Blow Blowout. JV of course, is our fictional player that represents the Las Vegas bookmakers' confidence picks based on their composite odds for each game. And we all know that those Vegas casinos don't build themselves, so JV picks are usually pretty good. He usually hangs around the Top 50, occasionally the Top 25 and sometimes even in the Top 10. But never, ever, ever has he been at the top of the standings. Certainly not for 2 weeks straight.

But here we are, after 13 weeks in the books, Johnny Vegas, from Las Vegas, NV leads the CFCC field with 815 points and a 138-56 overall record. And if it wasn't for dirty-dawg vet Kerry Jones from Albuquerque, JV would have the best record at this point too. Kerry however, has picked one game better and sits in 6th place overall with a 139-55 record, just 12 points off the lead. Brett Williams from Selma, TX is in 2nd place with 809 points (-6), Linda Lininger is in 3rd (-8) while Josh Boustead and Becky Pritt are 10 points back in 4th and 5th places respectively. Linda Ashford, Kent Kuyper, 2004 runner-up Jason Runyen and G. Wayne Baggett round out the Top 10 and are all within 30 points of the lead and have a very legitimate shot of winning the coveted CFCC crown. Just out of the Top 10 are two other premier CFCC dawgers that go by the name of Jeri Adams (2016 3rd Place), in 12th place and 2009 Champion David Schomaker in 13th place.

One of our favorite named dirty-dawgers, Rusty Painter, took home Week 13 honors on a 108 points and only missed the Mississippi State debacle and North Carolina. Susan Fuller was the Week 13 runner-up wtih 106 points on a 12-3 record. And we have bad news in Group Play. Florida Dummies lead the way at the Blowout pause with an average score of 736.17 points. Florida Dummies have won group play so many times we have lost track. Florida Dummies means business. Florida Dummies is tough to catch and they are pulling it off this year despite rather lacklulster seasons by the Gators and Seminoles. So, good luck to 2nd place Boomerbacks with 724.25 points and 3rd place Dawgzilla. They are going to need it!

The CFCC will now pause to watch the various conference championships stress-free, although there will be plenty on the line. Probably the most on the line of any championship games in the College Football Playoff era. Three of the games, the Big 10, ACC and SEC championships are most likely quarter-final games with the winner likely invited to the big party on New Year's Day. Oklahoma will be in if they can beat TCU again, and Alabama probably isn't out no matter what happens. It should be a great weekend of college football. And the controversy when it is all over will probably force an 8 team playoff in the not-too-distant future.

If I were a one-man playoff committee my rankings would go like this: Auburn, Clemson, Wisconsin, Alabama. And obviously I think, Oklahoma, Miami, Georgia and Ohio State have a good shot as well. What do you know, that is 8 teams right there! Baker Mayfield will win the Heisman, but I will grab my crotch and plant my flag on your 50-yard line if OU's defense can hold up against the elite teams in the country. And you heard it here first, Johnny Vegas will NOT win CFCC. The bowl games are where the Vegas methodology of relying on key stats breaks down. Emotion plays a huge part in games between a bunch of (largely) immature 18-22 year olds and this bowl season will be no different.

So, hold tight as we await the official playoffs and bowl match-ups. We will then make the Bowl Blowout form available with 25 of the best bowl games. At that point, you will all put 1 through 25 on the games, keeping in mind that the National Championship game counts double points. Until then, kick back and enjoy the conference championship games and we will be in touch for another incredible CFCC finale!

PFCC Week 11 Wrap: It's not Lonely at the Top, but it's Stagnant

by: exRegionalWeenie No Shave November 23, 2017


Despite Week 11's upsets, close calls, beatdowns and even a NY Giants win over Kansas City (what??), there was no change at the top of the overall NFL/PFCC standings. No change...as in NO change. The first four people remained in their exact same slots: Jerry Bailey (first place...woohoo!), Brian Boyd (second...and only TWO points behind Jerry), Brandon Bigelbach (third) and Tina Fausey (fourth). The only new comer to the overall Top 5 is Anthony Cavallucci who inched up one slot into fifth place.

Jerry Bailey rejoices after realizing he's still in 1st place in PFCC/NFL


So while the people listed above make up our "Power 5", here's a look at our "Group of 5": Tim Oram (sixth), Judith Bradberry (seventh), Rich Naden (eigth), Jeff Graschel (ninth) and David Broxton (tenth). Jeff gets a special shoutout because he zoomed up 19 places in the standings into ninth place. Hey Jeff, do that again this week and you'll REALLY be in the driver's seat!

Kudos to the Best Players in Week 11
We had another lackluster week in our NFL picks but several people earned an appearance in this week's notes. First up is Michael Pulis of Kyle, TX. Michael took first place last week by scoring 88 points (overall player average was 29). North Dakota's Brian Gregory was second place with 84 points. He actually won one game more than Michael, but that's irrelevant in Dirty Dawg because we're all about the money points, not won-lost records.

San Antonio's Monte Oaks was in third place last week followed by Jacksonville, FL's Andrew Kennedy. John Schmidt and Jeff Graschel tied for fifth with 70 points each.

Look Out, Below!
The ass-end of last week's standings was anchored by Rapid City's Keith Sherburn. We know Keith and we like Keith, but Keith went 4-8 with -26 points, so he earns 15 seconds of Dirty Dawg fame. Keith narrowly edged out ABQ's Kerry Jones (another guy we know and like) who managed to win only THREE games but "earned" a -21 score. As is tradition here at Dirty Dawg, "last place Keith's" -26 score was awarded to ALL of the quitters/forgetters. This means over 30 players had a -26, too, including Aaron Hill, Joe Merchant, Char Dewey, Tim Doggett, and Scott Overpeck, just to name a few. You're welcome.

Group Standings
The Hailraisers have a commanding lead over the second place Harvey Crusaders in the Group Standings. The Hailraisers bill themselves as a "Group for Penn State Meteorology Students, Alumni, Faculty, and Friends." Nice going, Hailraisers. We Are!!! Next in line are The Juice is Loose, BoomerBacks, and Going UP 4 the TD who are in third, fourth and fifth place, respectively.


HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
