Smoked Out

By Boda

Fail
Well - we had a dirty-dawg first this week in that a game was smoked out by wildfires. Of course, it had be the Big Game between Stanford and Cal - where the phrase "smoked out" would have had a whole different meaning about 50 years ago. Really, smoke outs in football stadiums didn't seem to be a problem then. So everybody got zero points on that game this week. And about 7 people got screwed out of the chance to win or lose 15 points. Sorry about that. Really. We are. In other news, about 8 SEC games also got smoked out. What a tremendous coincidence that was. Oh sure, they played the games. But the aggregate score was 10,252 - 51. Go ahead check my math. There was smoke on each SEC field as well (you didn't think those were road games did you ?). So, rivalry week is upon us and the deadline is early this week to make room for the all-important Egg Bowl in Mississippi on Thanksgiving Night. And of course, we'll be wrapping things up with the Grand Daddy of all rivalries Saturday evening when Utah State and Boise State face off. Only one of those is actually a state by the way, as if it really matters in this no-holds-barred match-up.

Our Week 12 standings look like this, Ernest Hemingway of Seville, Spain posthumously took the week's top honors with a 14-0 record and 118 points. He also climbed an impressive 69 spots in the CFCC standing (which is not an easy thing to do this late in the season). Hemingway was followed by DH (no first name, no middle name, no last name) from Elko (no state, no country) who also went 14-0, but for 114 points due to the smoke out. Jeff Overton of Kansas City MO finished third with a 13-1 record and a whole bunch of people went 12-2. Unfortunately, both Don Baker and Scott Staggs managed to do so with only 70 points each after missing on Michigan State and West Virginia. Overall there was very littl movement in the standings this week where Seth Binau expanded his lead by 10 points over both Alisha Mize and Mr. Red. Good luck in the coming week.

PFCC Week 10 Wrap: Early Deadlines Loom

by: Sugar (November 16, 2018)


Before we catch up on PFCC Week 10, be advised that upcoming deadlines during Thanksgiving week will be on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day for both contests! You have all come a long way, so don't screw it up now! We lose more players during Thanksgiving week than any other week. It's bad enough to have to deal with your family you only see twice a year for the whole day, but to forget your dd picks just screws the whole experience up even more.

With that out of the way, let's take a quick look back at PFCC Week 10, which had an average score of an embarassing 22 points. Deanna Wolfe of Damascus, VA was able to double the average and then some to take home the PFCC Week 10 glory with 59 points on 10 wins. Runner-up was Andrew Tocci, from San Antonio, TX who also scored 59 points, but only on 9 wins. Robert Banks of Fort Worth, TX finished 3rd with 55 points.

The overall scoreboard continues to be yawner as Hank Bauer from Spanish Fort, AL continues to pace the field with a commanding 50 point lead. Hank has 610 points overall with a stellar 98-40 record. Hank has been in 1st place since Week 5. Jon Zeitler from New Braunfels, TX has taken over 2nd place with 560 points on 96 victories, while Gary Petti from Weeki Wachee, FL is in third. Mike Louder and Joel Veeneman round out the Top 5 with 10 weeks in the books.

Not much has changed in group play as well with Going Up 4 the TD holding first place on an average score of 496.8 points, followed by Johnny Cannucking Football and Boomerbacks.

Don't forget the early deadlines, otherwise enjoy another great weekend of dirty-dawg football.

The 2018 CFCC Week 11 Wrap-up:
Status Quo--All the way Around


by Shudda, Cudda, Wudda



Coming into Week 11 it didn't look like it would offer much hope of a big shakeup with the CFP Top 4 (as well as the "first two out") all having double digit point spreads in their games. And sure enough all six won, although #6 Oklahoma almost succumbed to !Bedlam! vs. Oklahoma State. OU has struggled in its rivalry games this year, falling to Texas a few weeks ago. So should OU slip? Who would threaten? LSU had to hold on a little at the end to ensure a 7-point victory over bottom-dweller Arkansas, but #8 Washington State made a slight statement with a commanding performance over mediocre Colorado. What probably will help Wazzou the most was playing a good game when the East Coast was awake--a 3:30 pm EST start, rather than a 10:30 pm EST start, and Gardner Minshew looked great (and okay, the 'stache looked great too--getting a lot of media coverage!). So, the CFP Top 4 will likely stay the same this week, and Georgia should hold at #5, but #6 might be interesting Tuesday night.

For Dirty Dawg play, it was Status Quo as well with the Top 4 players, Seth Binau, Alisha Mize, Mr. Red, and Trinna Patterson, holding their places. As a matter of fact, these four players have placed in the same order 1, 2, 3, 4 after Weeks 9, 10, and 11. Jeff Ward, Charlottesville, VA cracks into the Top 5 for the first time this year, moving up 3 places from #8 last week.

For Week 11, the results were kind of ho-hum with an average score of 72.4, and ten players with scores >= 100. Top Dawg for the week is Chelsea Kryston, from Las Vegas, yes Las Vegas! Hey Chelsea, did you go into town and do something useful with these picks? Chelsea was 13-2 with the top score of 110, nailing the Tennessee upset over #11 Kentucky. Funny how the Kentucky Football team struggles after Basketball season Tips Off! There was a tie for 2nd Place this week with Fernando Salas (Tuscaloosa, AL) and William Moseley (Davenport, FL) at 106.

In Group Play, "Do We Really have Time for This" continues at #1 for the fourth week in a row, with "All in the Family" continuing at #2. "The Family" has been in the Top 2 since Week 3. "High Plains Drifters" surged up from #7 last week to #3 now, holding the slimmest of margins (0.05 point) over #4 "Morass of Ordinary Effort".

As we look ahead to Week 12, not too many big games lined up (gotta wait for Rivalry Week in Week 13), but we do have #3 Notre Dame taking on #13 Syracuse at Yankee Stadium Saturday afternoon.

All for now--Best of Luck to all of you in Week 12!
