Socially Distanced PFCC Update

by: Sugar (October 14, 2020)


Here at dirty-dawg.com we like to say that football season is the best time of the year. But saying something is the best of 2020 doesn't quite weigh the same as it does most years, does it? We are through 5 weeks of dirty-dawg for 2020 and it's been a wild ride thus far. Trying to navigate positive C-19 tests, cancelled games, postponed games, periodic civil unrest and political bickering has made it difficult on almost everyone. So far, we have been able to keep the contest running, but we know the weekly summaries have been socially distanced. Our masked-up and low-budget operation will continue to do the best we can.

With the disclaimers and excuses out of the way, lets all throw some praise on Barb Mayes Boustead for leading PFCC the last 3 weeks! Barb is currently holding off Tyler Castillo of Corpus Christi, Texas and Matthew O'Neill of Buda, Texas by 2 points. Darren Scherer and Tom Fannin are in 4th and 5th places respectivelly. Darren led PFCC after Week 1 and Tom Fannin led after Week 2, before Barb took over the lead after 3 weeks in. A group of weather forecasters and alumni from National Weather Service Jacksonville, FL, playing under group name "The Teal Curtain" are enjoying a 9+ point lead over Desert Dawgs to lead PFCC Group Standings.

Week 5 PFCC honors go to dirty-dawg veteran Chris Darden from Birminghmam, Alabama going 10-3 with 86 points. And what do you know, occasionally a dirty-dawg founding father enjoys some brief glory. For Week 5 that would be Dick Wagenmaker from Brighton, Michigan finishing Week 5 with runner-up honors with 84 points and a 11-2 record. Dick does tend to score better during weeks that the Detroit Lions don't play.

We already mentioned that Darren Scherer won Week 1. Monte Oaks, Tom Morrill, Zach Sefcovic and Barb Boustead all posted perfect scores to win Week 2. Cyndi Pulis and Tyler Castillo shared Week 3 honors with 90 points each with Andrew Tocci winning Week 4 with 91 points.

Okay, that catches us up with PFCC for a few days. Remember, group play will be closing in 2-3 weeks so make sure to let us know via email which dead-weight players you want to jettison before we close the door on changes. We will get an email out on that as soon as we decide on the week. Otherwise, make sure to keep up with all game changes. We do the best we can to keep up, but occasionally fail miserably. If all of our socially distanced staff members stay healthy, you will see another write-up sooner than later. If we don't, this might be it until the Super Bowl. Either way, enjoy the season and we hope this offers a little distraction from the rest of the world happenings. Thanks for playing dirty-dawg.com!

CFCC Week 3: One and Dunn

by: exRegionalWeenie (10/2/20)


Big Boy football returned (mostly) in Week 3 as the Big 12 and SEC started their seasons. Thankfully, our Week 3 games included Florida, Auburn, Oklahoma State, LSU and Texas. Sure beats picking teams like Eastern Kentucky, Houston Baptist (seriously, did you even know they played football?) and Louisiana. Now we just need the Big 10 and PAC 12 to join in... and for everyone to stay safe.

Week 3 Player Results: One and Dunn
Two Texans - Michael Pulis from Kyle and J.r. Dunn from Rowlett - led the field last week. Both went 11-2 with 91 points to tie for first place. Joe Benzel also went 11-2 but scored 89 points so he ended up being third. We had a 5-way tie for fourth place between Ashley Ravenscraft, Brian Boyd, Ted Champney, Jon Zeitler, and Fernando Salas, all with 87 points. Cuss Rodder and Mark Wiley rounded out the Top 10 scores from Week 3.

Overall Standings after 3 Weeks: Familiar Names
Since we're so early in the season, you would think Week 3 high scorers would place high in the year-to-date overall standings. You would be correct. Michael Pulis is the leader and is just 2 points ahead of Ted Champney. Week 1 winner Michael Orosco is third overall and is followed closley by Aiden Binau and Fernando Salas. There are five more names in the Top 10 but laziness precludes listing them here.

Nuts. I feel guilty. So, here are the remaining Top 10 overall point leaders after 3 weeks: Nick Hampshire, Michael Grover, Raymond Jojola, Mark "Operation" Condor and Chris Charters. There. Now I can sleep at night.

Group Play Standings: Dawgzilla Leads
Dawgzilla leads the group play standings.Their team motto is, "We're ready to take seventh place" but they're in first right now, so maybe they plan to stink the rest of the year. If that happens, teams likely to take over first place include BuckNutz and The Andy Griffith Show as they're in second and third place, respectively, after 3 weeks. Fourth place belongs to MVFRs who are clearly a bunch of weather weenies. Aviation weather weenies. Scurvy Dawgs complete the Top 5 in group play.



Doug Schneider, Boomerbacks, LSU Basking in CFCC Glory

by: Sugar (January 21, 2020)


After a week to contemplate one of the most dominant seasons in college football history, it's time to shout out some dirty-dawg kudos after another outstanding contest. Some experts have called LSUs 2019 season and eventual National Championship one of the best seasons ever by one of the best teams ever. And that's hard to argue with. It was fun to watch Joe Burrow sit back and pick apart defenses. And Joe sets a great example for future players. He doesn't run around with his index finger in the air, pound his chest, taunt opposing players or their fans. He just goes out there and does his job and then goes back to the sideline. He never even gets that excited about anything. And how about Ed Orgeron (Geaux Tigas)? He was last choice to be the LSU head coach after attempts to lure Jimbo Fisher and Tom Herman fell through. Not a bad season for a transfer QB and last chance head coach. And just to brag a little about the dirty-dawg gurus, we predicted in one of the first articles of the year that it just seemed like it was time for another team to win the CFP Championship this year that isn't named Alabama or Clemson. Yeah, yeah, we didn't give any good reasons and we didn't name the team, but how many dawgers agreed with that statement back on Week 1? And while the great one has proven time and time again to never count him nor his team out, I think Nick Saban and Alabama's dominance of college football is over.

Enough of the formalities. Let's get on with the praise. Doug Schneider from Talbott, TN is the 2019 CFCC Champion! Doug finished with a whopping 1188 points and a record of 167-68 for the 15 week CFCC season. Doug started the Bowl Blowout in 2nd place and went 18-7 in the Bowl Blowout correctly selecting both playoff games and the eventual National Champion. Doug had a dominant season. He worked his way into the Top 5 players after Week 5 and was never worse than 3rd place from Week 7 on! That's consistency right there, dawgs, and a great example of how it is done. Congratulations, Doug! I wish we had a new car, or even a lousy t-shirt for you, but the admiration of dirty-dawgs everywhere, along with a coveted Gold Bone next to your name, will have to suffice.

Veteran dirty-dawger Ray Sondag is the 2019 Silver Bone winner and CFCC runner-up. Ray went off on the Bowl Blowout, winning the week with a blistering 22-3 record and 268 points. And perhaps more impressive is that Ray used the 1-25 method in the Bowl Blowout by risking 1 on the first game, 2 on the 2nd and so on, which means he had 25 points on the CFP Championship game, knocking down 50 points with LSU. Players that try the 1-25 method typically end up going down in flames, but when you pick 22 out of 25 correctly, it helps turn the tide in the other direction. In fact, Ray finished only 6 points behind the winner with a total of 1182. Great job Ray and well deserved after many stellar years as a dirty-dawger. Congratulations!

We turn to High Springs, FL for this year's 2019 Bronze Bone winner. Dean Moseley, a member of the vaunted Moseley dirty-dawg Dynasty, also finished with 1182 points to tie Ray Sondag, but settles for third place due to his 2 fewer wins. Dean had an interesting trip to 3rd place by improving his position every week, except between Week 12 and Week 13! He had the 348th best record after Week 1 and sets a great example of how a slow start doesn't mean much when all is said and done. Dean had a stellar Bowl Blowout going 20-5 for 230 points. Great comeback, Dean!

Other stellar performances for 2019 include Lacy Dunn from Rowlett, TX, who finished 4th with 1178, just 4 points out of the bones. Caiden Orosco from Colorado Springs was 5th and Howard Shuler from St. George, SC was 6th. Last year's 2018 Bronze Boner, Alisha Mize, from Mountain City, TX had another great year finishing 7th overall. Very impressive two-year performance, Alisha! G. Wayne Baggett from Friendswood, TX was 8th while the pride of Claremore, OK, Teddy Overton and Mr. Weeki Wachee, FL, Gary Petti, rounded out the Top 10. Excellent performances all around.

We always tell dirty-dawgers that wins don't really matter, but we still like to recognize those with stellar record years. The best record honors for 2019 goes to Brett Williams with 172 wins, followed by Howard Shuler and Carl Lindecrantz with 171 each. Brett finished 12th, Howard 6th and Carl, ahem, 174th. Carl had issues with his confidence factors, which just goes to show you that if a dirty-dawg vet like Carl can have problems, we all can! Still, a stellar season for those 3 dawgs. How about past champions you ask? The 2006 champion, Derek Eisentrout finished 15th, while Cyndi Pulis (2008) was 67th and last year's winner Sam Binau was 114. Finally, our 2014 winner Roger Bryan finished in 149th place.

For the Bowl Blowout, we already mentioned Ray Sondag's winning performance. Just 14 points back was Brad Mickelson with 254 points to take runner-up honors. Greg Waller (2012 Bronze) finished 3rd with 247 points on a red-hot record of 21-4. Michael Berry (247 points, 20-5) and Derek Eisentrout (246, 21-4) finished in 4th and 5th place respectively.

And finally, bringing some college football champion redemption to the word "Boomer", BoomerBacks is the 2019 Group Play Champion, winning with an average of 1104.25 points. BoomerBacks was powered by #9 overall, Teddy Overton. BB won easily over 2nd place runner-up All in the Family, which finished with 1070.24 points led by #10 overall Gary Petti. Third place in Group Play for 2019 goes to multi-year group champion The Florida Dummies (Resurgence). We hope everyone enjoyed group play once again this year and were able to benefit from some side bets and bragging rights even if they weren't in championship running.

That's a wrap on another outstanding CFCC here at dirty-dawg.com. Meanwhile, we are in a two-week wait to crown a new Super Bowl Champion as well as a new PFCC Champion and don't forget the best College Basketball Tourney contest on the web coming in March. And of course we will be back here in August for another exciting season of dirty-dawg.com to celebrate the best time of the year. From all of here at dirty-dawg.com World HQ, thanks for playing!
