CFCC 2018 Wrap: Who Can it Binau?

by: Sugar (January 9, 2019)


Another incredible season of college football is in the books and that brings dirty-dawg.com's 2018 College Football Confidence Contest to another close. And to all but about 46 dirty-dawgers' surprise, the Clemson Tigers handed the Alabama Crimson Tide its worst loss of the Nick Saban era in the National Championship game. Now Clemson may have (temporarily) ended the Crimson Tide dominance, the same cannot be said for the Binau family domination of dirty-dawg.com's CFCC! Seth Binau from Clarksville, OH maintained a fairly comfortable lead for the last several weeks of CFCC 2018 and hedged on the championship game with 14 on the Tide. Seth remained in 1st place throughout 14 Bowl Blowout games, but Seth's relative, Sam Binau, also from Clarksville, OH is the 2018 CFCC Champion after roaring from 37th place on 129 Bowl Blowout points to take home the championship. Sam had a big fat 25 on Clemson in the final game to power himself to victory with 817 points. It was a tough year for CFCCers and that is reflected in the fact that 817 points is the lowest winning score ever. Congratulations, Sam. Great pick on Clemson and you will be forever honored by dirty-dawgers everywhere. Enjoy the gold bone next to your name!

Seth did hang on for runner-up honors and earned his first bone, despite being an annual dirty-dawg force. Seth finished with 775 points, 42 points back. The bronze bone for 2018 went to Alisha Mize from Buda, TX, who finished with 762 points and an outstanding 150 wins. Congratulations to Seth Binau and Alisha Mize for their stellar seasons.

Just outside the Top 3 we find another Binau powerhouse, Aidan Binau, owner of the 2016 championship and 2014 runner-up CFCC bones. Aidan plays from Billings, MT and was only 3 points away from becoming just the 2nd dirty-dawger with 3 bones. In 5th place was Lubbock, Texas player Joe Merchant, who finished 2nd for the Bowl Blowout, also powered by 25 points on Clemson. Joe finished with 755 overall points and was up 150 slots after a 152 point, 15-9 Bowl Blowout resume. And speaking of 3 bones, we find that owner, in the form of Oxford, Michigan's Bryan Tilley, in 6th place overall with 753 points, just 9 points from earning an unprecedented 4th bone. Bryan was up 90 spots after a 16-8 blowout.

Pete Fickenscher finished 7th overall and Jeri Adams was 8th. Trinna Patterson from Memphis, TN finished 9th and Mark Didrick of Fort Wayne, IN finished 10th. We always talk about how dirty-dawg is a confidence contest and it is all about the points. However, if your name is Mark and you live in a city that is part of a fort you apparently have an advantage in picking winners. Look no further than the aforementioned Mark Didrick of Fort Wayne and Mark Wiley of Fort Worth who both finished with a contest high 151 wins. While Mr. Didrick finished in 10th place with 741 points, Mr. Wiley finished in 26th place with 689 points. Yes, the confidence factors rule, but congrats to the Marks nonetheless for straight up picking game winners.

For the Bowl Blowout, John Malone from Henderson, TX was the big winner with an incredible 209 points on an 18-6 record. And he had Alabama as the champion. Joe Merchant was the Bowl Blowout runner-up with 152 points. Dale Lininger from Buda, TX finished 3rd with 143 points. Dick Wagenmaker was 4th overall for the Bowl Blowout with 137 points and a blowout best 19 wins. This stellar performance made Wagenmaker the biggest mover for the Bowl Blowout, rocketing 216 spots up to #37 overall. Very impressive Wag! Charlie Woodrum was 5th overall with 137 points on 16 wins.

For the popular Group Play competition, Do We Really Have Time for This? took home the honors with an average score of 676.40 points. They were powered by Buda, TX players Alisha Mize (Bronze Bone) and Matthew O'Neill (12th overall). All in the Family was group runner-up with 650.5 points and the Binau/Schomaker dynasty and multi-year group play winners Bucknutz finished 3rd with 636.56. High Plains Drifters were 4th with 626 points and Morass of Ordinary Effort finished 5th with 612.17.

That's another wrap for the 20th overall season of dirty-dawg.com's CFCC. We hope you all enjoyed the contest and a big thanks goes to the dirty-dawg directors. It takes several dawgs, with other real jobs, to pull this off every season and they know who they are. We'll be back in fall 2019 with another version of the best contest on the web. Have a great winter, spring and summer from all of us at dirty-dawg.com!

Latest PFCC Wrap

by: Sugar (December 19, 2018)


We are down to just 2 weeks in the long, long, long PFCC season. The crappy bowl games are also under way in the CFCC awaiting the real games, those of the Bowl Blowout, which begin on December 26. We are way overdue for a brief look at PFCC greatness, so here we go.

With 15 weeks in the bag, we have a tight race at the top of the standings, led by Gary Petti of Weeki Wachee, FL. A fun fact about Weeki Wachee: the population is 12. So 1/12 of the population of Weeki Wachee are dirty-dawgers! We are pretty proud of that. Anyhow, Gary holds a 9 point lead over Kent Ross of Vancouver, WA and Mark Didrick of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Lurking in 4th place and just 27 points back is dirty-dawg veteran, powerhouse and 2000 PFCC runner-up Bryan Tilley of Oxford, MI. dirty-dawg warning: Mr. Tilley is coming to get you dawgs! In 5th place we find Mike Johnson of Bartlett, TN while Asam Michael from San Antonio is in 6th. Melissa Harral, Ed Tannehill, Jane Banks and Loretta Harral round out the Top 10. You read that right, we have two Harrals in the Top 10. Another dawger to keep an eye on is down in 13th place, where we find double-bronze boner John Leibold just 37 points off the leading pace.

The average score for Week 15 was a woeful 7 points. But Zach Sefcovic managed 72 points on a 12-3 record to take home the Week 15 championship. Robert Banks and Ben Nelson finished 2nd and 3rd. Chris McKinney was the big stud during Week 13 with a total score of 92 points, while Eric Jones was the Week 14 winner with 62 points. Congrats to Chris, Eric and Zack for awesome weeks.

Going up 4 the TD continues to hold a commanding lead in group play with an average score of 674.40. Hailraisers is 2nd with 650.5 while Boomerbacks is in 3rd with 615.33.

We have another early Saturday deadline for Week 16 PFCC, so watch for that and remember that Week 14, otherwise known as the Bowl Blowout, is due on December 26. Enjoy the remainder of dirty-dawg 2018!!

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.
