CFCC Week 12: Champney Pitches No Hitter!

Wagenmaker Takes Overall Lead


by: Shudda, Cudda, Wudda



Week 12 Football Highlights
CFCC Week 12 looked like it would be only marginally interesting with several teams playing non-conference "directional teams" before next week's Rivalry Week, but the day offered many edge-of-your-seat games with 8 of the Top 14 CFP teams winning by 3 points or less and four of these teams outright losing. The biggest upset of the day was South Carolina over #5 Tennessee, but that one looked so unlikely it wasn't even on our sheet!

There were 4 upsets in our slate of games with two of them in the icy upper Midwest where Iowa upset Minnesota and Texas Tech upset Iowa State. The other two upsets were Arkansas bouncing back and upsetting Ole Miss 42-27 and #12 Oregon with a slight upset of #10 Utah. Now that we are into the latter half of November there is more "Football Weather" occurring. We looked for some cold weather games to include, with many of them being played below freezing, seeing every player's steamy breath. There were not any games with Heavy Snow on Saturday as seemingly all the snow in the Northern Hemisphere was dumping downstream of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

Dirty Dawg Play
For CFCC Week 12, Ted Champney had a No Hitter, going 14-0 and scoring a weekly max of 119 (with one point vacated from the cancelled Coastal Carolina v Virginia game). In 2nd Place this week was Kelly Sink with 113, and 3rd Place was Amber Hluchan with 110.

CFCC Year-to-Date Standings
In the overall standings, Dick Wagenmaker, Dirty Dawg Charter Member, slid into the lead moving from #2 to #1. Dick has been biding his time, being in the Top 5 for the past 6 weeks and in 2nd Place for the past three weeks. Pat Spoden bumped up from #3 to #2 and Alisha Mize surged up from #7 to #3. Todd Hamill (last week's #1) is still within striking distance, now at #6.

CFCC Group Play Standings
In Group Play, All in the Family still continues in 1st Place, with The Florida Dummies and the BuckNutz swapping places with BuckNutz now #2 and The Florida Dummies #3.

Looking ahead to Rivalry Week
Rivalry Week is already here, with the Egg Bowl (Miss State v Ole Miss) Thanksgiving Night, four games on Black Friday, but still a full 14 hours of games on Saturday headlined by #3 Michigan at #2 Ohio State. Good luck everyone!

2022 CFCC Week 11: Fear, Loathing, and We're All Running Out of Time

By Boda (11/16/22)

That title sounds much more foreboding than it really is. Only for a few of us is the end of the world actually imminent. But for all of us dirty-dawgers we are down to just 2 more weeks of college football picks followed by a massive Bowl Blowout. A lot of people still have a shot to win the overall CFCC. Eight people are within 50 points of the lead and sixty-one within 100 points of the lead. We expect everyone else will just start putting big points on crazy upsets.

Bruce Comer of Mt. Juliet, Tennessee was the CFCC Week 11 winner with a stellar 12-3 record for 96 points. Also of note were Robert and Nystrom (Broomfield CO) and Bill Cline (Elizabethton TN) for their 13-2 records for 84 points and 78 points respectively. Both had losses on Oregon and Tulane. Overall, Todd Hamill was able to stretch his lead from 2 points to 16 points thos week, and Pat Spoden moved up 4 spots within the top ten to 20 points behind the leader.

Fail
In week 11 game action, we through a solid 15 game out there as red meat for everyone with Tennessee and Missouri, but after that it was a relatively difficult week with consense 12 pick Oregon going down a a very good Washington team. LSU made everyone sweat it out as a consensus 8 pick on the road against Arkansas -- barely pulling it out. And TCU made believers out of us all beating touchdown favorite Texas on the road -- which was also a 6 confidence level pick amongst top 25 dirty-dawgers. For Week 12, we start the first of two rivalry weeks where Iowa continues it quest to capture every bronze statue with some sort of farm animal. This week's Iowa-Minnesota winner gets the Pink Floyd of Frogmoore. Michigan and Illinois renew their storied rivalry with the winner taking home a stack of folding chairs. In LA it's USC visiting UCLA with lot's of tickets available for that one. And in Norman they say it's a hubbub, or pandemonium, mayhem, or just general disorder. And last, don't forget the dirty-dawg World Cup edition starting next week. I have 15 on Tunisia to win the whole thing.

PFCC/NFL - Week 10: Bombs Away

by: exRegionalWeenie (11/15/22)


Picking NFL winners can be a crap shoot but Week 10 was worse than usual. The average player score was a measley 0.9 points. Failure was everywhere.

Vegas made Philadelphia the highest favorite of the week... but the Eagles lost to Washington on Monday Night Football to cap off the bad week. Just one day earlier, several of your moderately high confidence numbers exploded in your face as Buffalo, Chicago, Las Vegas and Dallas all lost. Some of the games were painfully close and two went to overtime, but a loss is a loss. The consensus numbers on all of those games were 7 to 9 so the carnage was acute.

Tentinger Dominates Again
Brian Tentinger won Week 1 way back in September and he did it again in Week 10. This time, he flat-out dominated. Despite the average player score of less than 1, Brian had a 91... that's a whopping 30 points higher than second place Danielle Sanchez! Don't be jealous of Brian. He lives in one of the cloudiest places in the U.S. and might not see the sun again until next May. Let him enjoy his PFCC victory.

After Danielle, Nick Webb earned third place while Bud Hazelwood took fourth. The rest of the Top 10 did well but scored half or fewer points than our weekly winner. This includes Keith Sherburn and Mark Conder (tied for fifth with 45 points each), Ken Drozd and Mike Sutton (tied for seventh) and a three-way tie for ninth place between Juan Pena, Nicole Ventimiglia and Jane Banks. Nice job, gang!

Overall Standings after Week 10: An International Leader
Week 10 had an internatonal flavor. Sunday started with a kickoff between Tampa Bay and Seattle - in Munich, Germany. More importantly to us is that there's a new person in first place overall. That person is Allan Machika of Terrebonne, Quebec. He is absolutely guaranteed to be the first non-U.S. resident to have the overall lead in a dirty-dawg contest.*

Previous leader Dan Valle dropped into second place and is followed by 2020 runner-up Tyler Castillo. Dale Dues jumped five slots into fourth place while Pat Spoden and Penny Zabel are tied for fifth. The rest of the overall Top 10 is Tom Fannin, Desiree Meadows, Steve Travis and Zach Sefcovic.

Group Play Standings: It's Still Hurricane Season
Hurricane Elvis is an unusual team name but that small Category 1 group is in first place. They have a 12-point lead over Padookie Quack Attack (an even weirder name). Just a sliver of a point behind in third place is Sunday Funday.

* - Well, probably. Our record-keeping isn't that detailed and there's no way we're researching by hand, so we made that call based on a mixture of common sense and failing memory.
