CFCC Week 13 Seth Binau maintains his lead

by:The Cold Hard Truth


You leave the article writing to friends and next thing you know, we're posting images of Yoda and beards. However, thankfully I am back to make some sense of Week 13 of the CFCC.

This past week in North Carolina, a man shot his son at Thanksgiving over a heated argument about NFL athletes kneeling during the National Anthem. Then,in almost as shocking an event, Kellen Mond, Aggie QB, inadvertently touched his knee to the ground while picking up a fumbled snap in regulation of the A&M/LSU game, and next thing you know, the game is headed for 7 overtimes and the SEC is scoring points like the Big 12. In the end, the Aggies got the win in one of the best games I've seen in recent memory. Yes, I had 13 points on LSU, which could have produced a magical week for yours truly. However, we just have to appreciate a crazy game like that, whoever wins.

Speaking of crazy, do you want to know what makes me crazy? That's right - the annual build up Ohio State campaign. A convincing 62-39 victory "over the nation's best defense." "They finally played with the passion we know they have." "This is not the same football team that struggled with Indiana and Maryland." It happens every year. Call it what you want - ESPN sports hype, campaigning, or politics. The bottom line is they don't belong. They lost 49-20 to Purdue in a game that wasn't that close. They should have lost to Maryland, giving up 51 points to them. That wasn't way back at the beginning of the year. It was two weeks ago. We can't be bashing Oklahoma's defense and not bring up the Buckeyes too. I have to believe this is all about money. How could we possible not have a playoff without the Big 10? I have an idea. How about next year they field a team that is good enough to compete. Then we won't have to lie about it and say they deserve to be there.

Let's build up another team instead, Last year UCF went undefeated. They hung a championship banner and people went nuts. Now they have won 24 in a row! This last victory without their starting QB for 3 quarters. My prediction - they are good enough to win out without him. Let's hang another banner this year.

The Pac 12 - absolutely lousy. With Washington beating Washington State, the conference is eliminated from consideration for the Bowl Championship Series. I read today that WSU is mad about being ranked 13th, behind SEC teams with three losses. I don't know what to tell you? Hire Urban Meyer? The best you can hope for now is for Mike Leach to keep doing interviews. Have you ever seen a better interview than with that guy!

It was a tough week for the CFCC. The average score was south of 41 points. However, not everyone had issues. Apparently the picks were too easy for Rusty Painter from Jenkinsburg, GA., who went 12-3 and dropped 92 points on the field. Equally impressive, Seth Binau from Clarksville, OH has led the field for the last 5 weeks. Seth provides a wonderful example of how you can be from Ohio and legitmately be #1 without any false advertising. Great job Seth! Alisha Mize from Buda, Texas sits in the #2 position. She has been in the top 2 for 8 straight weeks. Mr. Red from San Francisco has been no lower than 11th this entire contest and is at #3 this week. Finally, a shout-out to all you losers below #400. You never cease to amaze.

Do We Really Have Time For This? is the group leader for the 5th week in a row. All in the Family is a close 2nd place. Hall of Famers - The Florida Dummies are in 9th. For all of you who are wondering whether we really have a Hall of Fame. No, but if we did, they'd be at the top of the list. I have a feeling they're ready to make a run.

PFCC Weeks 11 & 12: A New Leader

by: exRegionalWeenie (November 29, 2018)


We're dogging it at dirty-dawg. Customer Service took a call from a cranky reader who was upset that we didn't post a Week 11 PFCC/NFL story. One may not sound like much, but when that is 50% of your readership, you act. So here you go. NOTE: The Week 12 PFCC wrap is posted a little later in this story, so no more calls, please.

Week 11: Can't You do any Better than This?
Week 11 in the NFL was the week with the amazing Monday Night 54-51 shootout between the KC Chiefs and the LA Rams. That was one of NINE games that were decided by 3 points or less. It was also the week that the dirty-dawg field averaged -5.4 points. You people stunk. Well, not ALL of you. Scott Carpenter didn't stink. He won Week 11 with 76 points. On the other hand, Scott's great week "propelled" him from 217th place all the way up to 191st place. Maybe he does stink. Keith Ventimiglia didn't stink. He was second with 70 points while Michael Orosco was third with a 66.

Week 12: You Bounced Back
Almost all the favored teams won last week. About the biggest upset occurred when Big Ben tossed a pick in the endzone near the end of the Denver-Pittsburgh game. Some of you might consider Buffalo's victory over Jacksonville an upset, but seriously, have you seen the Jags lately? Saddled with Bad Blake Bortles, the Jag's only offensive threat is RB Leonard Fournette...but he got in a fight, threw a punch and got ejected/suspended. Numb nut. Oh, and did you see Baker Mayfield diss former Head Coach Hue Jackson after the Browns' win at Cincy? Great stuff! Hot tip...if any of you dawgs pick the Jags or Bengals in any game the rest of this season, you deserve a Reuben Foster assault.

Slidell, LA's, Tim Destri won PFCC Week 12 with 106 points. Nice job, Tim! Tim had three dawgs nipping at his heels. One of them was 2009 PFCC Champion Eric Coleman. Eric had 104 points but so did Jake Herty and Cindy Boyd, so they had to settle for a 3-way tie for second place.

Overall Standings as of November 29
The rise and fall of the Roman Empire. The rise and fall of the dinosaurs. The rise and fall of Hank Bauer. Yup, it finally happened - after seven consecutive weeks as our overall contest leader, Hank Bauer finally crashed and burned. Poor Hank fell all the way down to.... second place. Sorry, Hank. Better luck next time! Who took advantage of Hank's downfall? Why, it was none other than Weeki Wachee, FL's, Gary Petti. Gary spent six straight weeks in the Top 5 so he was poised to strike when Hank fell. Gary better not get too cocky, though, because his lead over Hank is just one lousy point.

Mike Johnson has come out of nowhere the past two weeks and now rests in third place. Loretta Harral is fourth (9 straight weeks in the Top 10!) and Ed Tannehill is in fifth place.

Poor Jon Zeitler
Jon was having an excellent pro season and spent the past four weeks in the Top 5. He was licking his chops and could almost taste first place. Unfortunately, however, he could also taste BBQ and was completely distracted by his eager anticipation of the Houston BBQ Festival. He only had 54 points last week and fell from third place down to 16th. Ouch. Hey Jon, we love us some Texas brisket, too, but focus, man - focus!

Group Play Standings
In Group Play, GOING UP 4 the TD has expanded its lead during the past few weeks. They now have about a 30 point lead over Hailraisers. Johnny Canucking Football is in third and the BoomerBacks are fourth.



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.
