2019 CFCC Week 7 is Good for Everyone (at least better than Week 6)!

By Boda

Fail
So... what goes into creating a CFCC Game Form ? Well, there are dueling philosophies at Dirty-Dawg World Headquarters. First, there are the senior, wise but sluggish, traditional, daytime nap-taking board members that may or may not be energetic enough to research the teams before entering games in the form. For this faction, the confidence numbers rule, and the challenge of correctly picking the game winners is secondary (but still important). The games typically feature big name schools and a decent handful of big point spreads and sucker games meant to attract the gambler in you. Getting the game winners is easier, so catching and avoiding upsets are paramount and the confidence points often carry the day. Then there is the coffee-snortin', pretentious, under-educated (thinking of a certain school :-)) faction that over-researches the teams and strives to field a CFCC Game Form line-up that contains 15 games with Vegas spreads of less than 3 points each. Typically the week has such titanic match-ups like Vanderbilt vs Rice and UAB vs Western Kentucky in addition to the few games where the big SEC teams meet each other. For this group, the goal is to make you work while kicking your butt at the same time. Your 15 pick might be just as likely to win or lose as your 1 pick, introducing a certain cruel randomness to the results. Sounds like fun, right ?

Comparing the CFCC Week 6 and Week 7 results illustrate how these philosphies clash. Week 6, using the latter philosophy, had an average score of -5, and the winning score was 80. In Week 7 the former philosophy produced a winning score of 110 points from Phil Nave of Elizabethton TN on the strength of a 13-2 record - missing a 1 on Army and a 4 on Memphis. Guess who else had a 13-2 record? Paul Witsamin of Forth Worth TX, which was good for 74 points and 279th (!!!) place on the week. Paul stumbled on Army (14) and Mike Leach University (9). You can see how sensitive the scores are to the confidence factors. Average score for the week was 79 points -equivalent to the Week 6 winning score ! Ray Jojola, Greg Forrester, and David Struhs didn't win but all had great weeks with 14-1 records. They all missed on Wake, and they all had a 9 on the Deacons. Are you all copying each others homework or something ? Group Play showed no change at the top with Buck Nutz and All in the Family still in first and second, but Boomerbacks have climbed into 3rd place this week.

Good luck and have fun with the Week 8 games. Its a tough slate.

CFCC Week 6: Mike Gillispie is on Fire. Mostly.

by: exRegionalWeenie (10/9/19)


Sioux Falls, South Dakota's, Mike Gillispie is on fire. His name is splattered all over dirtydawg.com after an amazing first weekend of football in October. What's so great about Mike? Well, get this:
1) He won the PFCC with 79 points in a week where the average score was 15.
2) His great week lifted him to into first place in PFCC's year-to-date standings. Damn nice.
3) And back here in the CFCC portion of dirtydawg, Mike was in 9th place for the week (average was -5 but he bagged 48 points).

There's just one catch. Mike's Top 10 showing this week allowed him to rise 33 places in the college overall standings (good) and he now rests in 388th place (not so good). We often make fun of people here and exaggerate a tad, but not this time - Mike is really in 388th place. Mike, you're rocking in PFCC but you need a few more good weeks here in the college contest before we take you seriously.

In non-Mike Gillispie news, Covington, Louisiana-based Jake Herty won CFCC Week 6 with 80 points. He edged out Meredith Wyatt and Ric Bavin who scored 72 and 68, respectively. There was a 3-way tie for fourth place between Eddie Sams, Dan Gossin and Joe Merchant. The rest of the Top 10 included Samantha Michlowitz, Jim Westland, Gillispie and Raymond Jojola.

On the Field Action
Most of us stunk last week but the games that hurt the most were Virginia Tech beating Miami on the road and Texas Tech's upset of 10-point favorite Oklahoma State. Other stinkers were Duke's home loss to Pitt and UCLA's home loss to Oregon State. Geez. Hey UCLA, how's that 5-year, $23M Chip Kelly contract working out for ya? Personally, Auburn cost me by losing it's first game in a high-profile matchup with Florida. But, their leading rusher injured his knee and is out for 4-6 weeks, so I guess we're even.

Overall Standings after Week 6
Gary Petti kept his first place ranking despite not doing too well (-6 points for the week). Gary is consistent - he has been in the Top 5 overall for 5 straight weeks. Stephen Storts is in second place, slightly ahead of Felecia Bowser and Doug Schneider who are tied for third. Andrew Gorelow has the final spot in our current Top 5.

Group Play Standings
Suspected Ohio State sympathesizers BuckNutz are in first place. All in the Family is in second. We thought their team name was a refernce to breeding habits in West Virginia. Turns out that we were wrong, but not by much (team members hail from Alabama, Arkansas and rural FL). A small group of guys from Missouri called The Border War Still Lives In KC (WTH?) are just a few points back and reside in third place.



PFCC Week 5 Wrap

by: Sugar (October 8, 2019)


Week 5 was another brutal week on the PFCC front with a putrid average score of 15. Kyler Murray did win his first game for Arizona and Gardner Minshew's "Fu Minshew" continues to lead the NFL fad competition so far in 2019. We also lost a Gruden, The Chiefs lost a rare game, and the Patriots keep winning. Just another week in the PFCC!

Despite the very pedestrian average score, dirty-dawg charter member Mike Gillispie from Sioux Falls, SD had a monster Week 5 going 11-3 for 79 points to take home Week 5 honors. Mike's performance vaulted him 7 spots to the overall PFCC lead five weeks in. Phil Stiegman from Sierra Vista, AZ was the Week 5 runner-up with 75 points on 10 wins. Mitchell Gaines from Endicott, NY was third best with 61 points, also on 10 wins.

Last week's leader Jerry Bailey slipped to second place after Week 5. Jerry has been one of the best PFCC players so far this year and has been in the top 6 all season. Mark Searcy, who was the PFCC leader after Weeks two and three is found in third place overall, while Ken Entremont from Reserve, LA is in fourth place. Jeremy Buckles rounds out the Top 5.

In group play, Hailraisers continues to lead with an average player score of 235.43 points, followed closely by Montana's Offensive-Hi-Line with 232.60. Perennial powerhouse Boomerbacks holds down the #3 spot with 227.78.

Week 6 is up and ready to go and it is that time of the year that all PFCCers despise. Or at least those PFCCers that wait until Sunday to enter their stellar predictions. That's right, the early Sunday kickoffs across the pond start this weekend. So, be advised that PFCC picks for Week 6 are due 830 AM CDT Sunday. Don't be late! Good luck with Week 6.
