CFCC Week 11: And Then...The Babbling...Stopped.

Enough said, Jimbo...
As an A&M grad, it never made sense to me--Texas A&M, with a spine of military tradition, integrity as a virtue, why in the hell you would hire a giggling babbler like Jimbo Fisher and then just throw in the towel on integrity this year by hiring Bobby Petrino as Offensive Coordinator. A $77 million mistake. God Bless both of you--please do something worthwhile with the money, but Silver Taps to your A&M coaching tenure--Highway 6 runs both ways...
Okay, (chuckle) so we didn't even have that game in Dirty Dawg CFCC this week--a game that at least tied a record, of both Head Coaches getting fired after a game! In Dirty Dawg play, we had better scores this week (average score of 90), which was halfway expected--we opted for more historical match-ups, even though several of the games had double-digit point spreads, but we needed a little boost to our condfidence with some higher CFCC scores. Enjoy!
There was little in the way of chaos in Week 11, with the undefeated CFP Top 5 still undefeated. For any inkling of a Separation Saturday, it was only the Top Tier putting more distance beyond the Second Tier. Most of the top teams looked plenty strong, and it looks like we are heading toward some great matchups for Championship Week this year.
CFCC Week 11 Scores
In CFCC play for the week, we had several 14-1 players, with Isaac Rhea, Elizabethton, TN leading all players at 116, then a trio at 114: Neal Rayburn, Hernando, MS; and two players from Lubbock, TX, Dale Ganus, and Justin Weaver, Dirty Dawg Founder and CEO. According to Johnny Vegas, there were three upsets: UCF throttling Oklahoma State, Missouri taking it to Tennessee, and Texas Tech beating CFP #16 Kansas on the road. Isaac correctly nailed the UCF and Texas Tech upsets and only wagered a 2 on his one miss.
CFCC Year-to-Date Standings
In the overall standings, Sean Poulos, Paducah, KY, continues in the lead for his third week, followed closely by Julie Jones, Sandia Park, NM, who continues in 2nd Place for the second consecutive week, and in 3rd Place, Carol Overton, Claremore, OK, who climbs up from 4th Place. Sean has been on an impressive run, in the CFCC Top 10 for the past 8 weeks, as well as leading the PFCC. Amazing, Sean--In The Zone, indeed.
CFCC Group Play Standings
For CFCC Group Play, Boomer Backs continue in 1st Place--and in 1st Place since Week 2, my goodness! Places 2 and 3 swapped this week, with The Border War Still Lives in KC sliding into #2, after biding their time at #3 for the past four weeks, and All in the Family slipping from #2 to #3 this week. And watchout those of you presently on the podium, The Florida Dummies have vaulted over the past few weeks, from #16 four weeks ago, to #9 last week, and somehow surging to #4 this week. Whoa!
Looking ahead to CFCC Week 12
For CFCC Week 12, we squat a bit before launching into Rivalry Week (in Week 13), but we do have couple of serious Prime Time road tests for CFP Tops 10s: Texas at Iowa State on Fox and Washington visiting an under-the-radar Top 10 Oregon State on ABC. Those should be intense! Elsewhere, maybe Tennessee was caught in a trap game last week at Missouri, and will give Georgia a test, hmmm, we'll see about that, and we also have UCLA at USC in the battle of LA. Gonna be fun! Good luck!
