CFCC Week 10: COVID 15 Rather than COVID 19


by Shudda, Cudda, Wudda



It's absolutely great to have college football. The headlines most of the week were how many games had been called off due to COVID--15 games!!! We'll call it COVID 15. Ok, there we lost 15 games, but there were 44 that we played--about 75%. So get a life all you Glass is 1/4 empty people!; we had 3/4 of the games. However, I'm glad that these 15 games were not our 15 CFCC games.

There is one thing I'm still waiting for--the Conference Commissioners to address a contingency for if a team can't play in a championship game. They all seem very confident that the December 19th Championship Games will be played--have the back-alley payoffs already started?

Ok--enough of that--sorry. This week we actually had a docile week with only two mild upsets--Nebraska held on to beat Penn State in Lincoln, and Miami held on to beat Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. We lost two of our games due to COVID, leaving us with 13 games. Of those, we had four players who went 13-0. With the points not counting in these games, the highest possible score was 117, exactly what Dan Spaeth, Paducah, KY, and Matt Hemingway, Shreveport, LA scored.

Highlights of our games--man, how good is Indiana? Blanked Michigan State, 24-0--up to AP #9 now. Of the teams that might be flat on Saturday (Notre Dame after the big Clemson win and Florida after the big Cocktail Party win), neither team had any real issues with Notre Dame beating Boston College on the road, and Florida scoring at will on Arkansas.

In the overall standings, we have a few leader, Steve Beaver, Plymouth, MI, who moved from #4 to #1 this week, and has slowly reeled in the field, after starting in Week 1 at #96. Greg Meffert, Paducah, KY holds at #2, and Ted Champney who held #1 last week slid to #3. With Matt Hemingway's clean sheet this week, he blasted up from #33 to #6.

In team play, the Scurvy Dawgs elevated to #1 this week, with The Andy Griffith Show and Bucknutz sliding up one slot each to #2 and #3, respectively. Dawgzilla, last week's #1 started making their move toward "We're ready to take seventh place again!", by sliding back to #5. Padookie Possum Trotters has moved up into #4.

Next week, let's hope for better health with a real test (and how!) for Indiana as they travel #3 Ohio State, #10 Wisconsin visits #19 Northwestern, and Bedlam ensues in Oklahoma as #14 Oklahoma State travels to #18 OU. Stay safe--matter of fact, just stay home and watch these great games! Take care.

CFCC Week 9: The Race is Called - Robert Ricks WINS!

by: exRegionalWeenie (11/8/20)


Non-fraudulent ballots were cast all week, right up until the 11am CST Saturday deadline as the entire dirty-dawg world bid to win Week 9. Observers were on hand to ensure no voting irregularities, so keep your lawsuits to yourself. It was a close race and wasn't decided until the Golden Domers edged #1 Clemson in a double overtime thriller late Saturday night.

Week 9 Winner: Robert Ricks
Landon, Mississippi's Robert Ricks took home the weekly crown. Robert had 79 points in a week which the average player scored just 5. How'd he do that? Well, Robert deployed the 'ol "1 thru 15 in sequential order" trick where he put a 1 on the first game listed (OK State) and went in order all the way to the last game listed (15 on Arkansas). This trick is occasionally deployed during the Bowl Blowout but Robert knew that Week 9 was his time to pounce. This strategy drastically limited his Penn State damage (only had a 3 on the Nits). You have to pick the winners, though, and he sure did by selecting Liberty (7), Colorado in an upset (a 13!) and Notre Dame (his 14 - talk about the pucker factor!).

Other Week 9 Kudos
Dan Dixon had an awesome week (75 points) and took second place but could have easily beaten Robert. It was too bad that Dan wasted his 15 on the canceled Utah game. Remember - no points earned on canceled games! Bruce Comer took third place by brazenly risking his 14 on 3-touchdown underdog Maryland. Bruce, you dawg!!

The rest of the week's Top 10 scorers included Caiden Orosco (4th), Brandon Thorne, Linda Kunches, Jeremy Buckles, Benjamin Lott, Mitchell Gaines, and Dennis Sleighter. Nice job, gang.

Penn State & 2 Other Low Lights
Penn State was more than a 3-touchdown favorite at home yet they screwed the pooch by getting dominated by Maryland. I guess the Terps wanted revenge for last year's 59-0 embarrassment. Jerald Meadows and Hayley Adams were the Penn States of the CFCC. Jerald was next-to-last in the weekly standings with -62 points. He tied for the worst W-L record at 4-10. Yikes. Not to be outdone, Hayley lost EACH of her double digit games. That's right - she lost her 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 AND 15 games to nail down last place with a -67 score. Holy cow.

Shakeup in the Overall Standings
We have a new overall leader. Ted Champney moved up from second place even though he only scored 18 points. Michael Orosco was our previous leader but he had an awful week (-34). Luckily for him, it only cost him 2 places as he now sits in third. Gregory Meffert jumped 12 slots into second place. Steve Beaver and Fernando Salas made big moves, too, as both jumped 14 places into fourth and fifth place, respectively.

Group Play Standings: Dawgzilla Leads
Dawgzilla still leads the group play standings. Their team motto is "We're ready to take seventh place again!" but they need to start losing some games for that to happen. Scurvy Dawgs own second place. Just a sliver of a point separates our third and fourth places teams, BuckNutz and The Andy Griffith Show. Fifth place belongs to MVFRs. Somewhat clearly, they're a bunch of aviation weather weenies.



Welcome Back Big Ten, Mountain West, and a Full Day of Games


by Shudda, Cudda, Wudda


After serving almost two months under an Abundance of Caution and Back-Peddling the Big Ten and Mountain West resumed games this week, and with some Pacific Time Zone teams now playing we had our first 14-hour day this year! Still gotta wait until November 7th (our Week 9) before the Pac 12 gets started. In the Big Ten, Ohio State looked in mid-season form, Michigan had surprisingly little trouble on the road at frozen Minnesota, and Indiana's OT upset of Penn State reminded us that football is a game of inches as the replay officials disected the replay and parts of the football itself to decide that game.

Elsewhere many of our favored teams won easily, but besides Indiana we did have three other upsets--Texas Tech winning at home over West Virginia, Cincinnati blowing out SMU on the road, and San Jose State grounding Air Force 17-6 at home.

For the week, we had CFCC six players with 100+ points, with Dale Parra taking the crown at 108 and Ted Champney at 106. The average score was a not-too-humiliating 62.3. In the overall standings, Ted Champney used his 106 to spring him to #1 this week after drafting behind Michael Orosco for the past couple of weeks. But Ted only has a 10 point lead over Michael, as the two of them have a pretty good cushion over the rest of the Top 10. Ted successfully picked the Indiana, Texas Tech, and Cincinnati upsets--Wow! Way-to-go, Bro!

In group play Dawgzilla (#1) , The Andy Griffith Show (#2), and Bucknutz (#3) lead with way, with Andy and Buck swapping 2nd and 3rd this week.

As we head to Week 8, on paper it looks like a quiet weekend with only one game matching Top 25 teams, with a very-muted White-Out in Happy Valley as Ohio State visits an angry Penn State Saturday night. Good Luck everybody!
