Doug Schneider, Boomerbacks, LSU Basking in CFCC Glory

by: Sugar (January 21, 2020)


After a week to contemplate one of the most dominant seasons in college football history, it's time to shout out some dirty-dawg kudos after another outstanding contest. Some experts have called LSUs 2019 season and eventual National Championship one of the best seasons ever by one of the best teams ever. And that's hard to argue with. It was fun to watch Joe Burrow sit back and pick apart defenses. And Joe sets a great example for future players. He doesn't run around with his index finger in the air, pound his chest, taunt opposing players or their fans. He just goes out there and does his job and then goes back to the sideline. He never even gets that excited about anything. And how about Ed Orgeron (Geaux Tigas)? He was last choice to be the LSU head coach after attempts to lure Jimbo Fisher and Tom Herman fell through. Not a bad season for a transfer QB and last chance head coach. And just to brag a little about the dirty-dawg gurus, we predicted in one of the first articles of the year that it just seemed like it was time for another team to win the CFP Championship this year that isn't named Alabama or Clemson. Yeah, yeah, we didn't give any good reasons and we didn't name the team, but how many dawgers agreed with that statement back on Week 1? And while the great one has proven time and time again to never count him nor his team out, I think Nick Saban and Alabama's dominance of college football is over.

Enough of the formalities. Let's get on with the praise. Doug Schneider from Talbott, TN is the 2019 CFCC Champion! Doug finished with a whopping 1188 points and a record of 167-68 for the 15 week CFCC season. Doug started the Bowl Blowout in 2nd place and went 18-7 in the Bowl Blowout correctly selecting both playoff games and the eventual National Champion. Doug had a dominant season. He worked his way into the Top 5 players after Week 5 and was never worse than 3rd place from Week 7 on! That's consistency right there, dawgs, and a great example of how it is done. Congratulations, Doug! I wish we had a new car, or even a lousy t-shirt for you, but the admiration of dirty-dawgs everywhere, along with a coveted Gold Bone next to your name, will have to suffice.

Veteran dirty-dawger Ray Sondag is the 2019 Silver Bone winner and CFCC runner-up. Ray went off on the Bowl Blowout, winning the week with a blistering 22-3 record and 268 points. And perhaps more impressive is that Ray used the 1-25 method in the Bowl Blowout by risking 1 on the first game, 2 on the 2nd and so on, which means he had 25 points on the CFP Championship game, knocking down 50 points with LSU. Players that try the 1-25 method typically end up going down in flames, but when you pick 22 out of 25 correctly, it helps turn the tide in the other direction. In fact, Ray finished only 6 points behind the winner with a total of 1182. Great job Ray and well deserved after many stellar years as a dirty-dawger. Congratulations!

We turn to High Springs, FL for this year's 2019 Bronze Bone winner. Dean Moseley, a member of the vaunted Moseley dirty-dawg Dynasty, also finished with 1182 points to tie Ray Sondag, but settles for third place due to his 2 fewer wins. Dean had an interesting trip to 3rd place by improving his position every week, except between Week 12 and Week 13! He had the 348th best record after Week 1 and sets a great example of how a slow start doesn't mean much when all is said and done. Dean had a stellar Bowl Blowout going 20-5 for 230 points. Great comeback, Dean!

Other stellar performances for 2019 include Lacy Dunn from Rowlett, TX, who finished 4th with 1178, just 4 points out of the bones. Caiden Orosco from Colorado Springs was 5th and Howard Shuler from St. George, SC was 6th. Last year's 2018 Bronze Boner, Alisha Mize, from Mountain City, TX had another great year finishing 7th overall. Very impressive two-year performance, Alisha! G. Wayne Baggett from Friendswood, TX was 8th while the pride of Claremore, OK, Teddy Overton and Mr. Weeki Wachee, FL, Gary Petti, rounded out the Top 10. Excellent performances all around.

We always tell dirty-dawgers that wins don't really matter, but we still like to recognize those with stellar record years. The best record honors for 2019 goes to Brett Williams with 172 wins, followed by Howard Shuler and Carl Lindecrantz with 171 each. Brett finished 12th, Howard 6th and Carl, ahem, 174th. Carl had issues with his confidence factors, which just goes to show you that if a dirty-dawg vet like Carl can have problems, we all can! Still, a stellar season for those 3 dawgs. How about past champions you ask? The 2006 champion, Derek Eisentrout finished 15th, while Cyndi Pulis (2008) was 67th and last year's winner Sam Binau was 114. Finally, our 2014 winner Roger Bryan finished in 149th place.

For the Bowl Blowout, we already mentioned Ray Sondag's winning performance. Just 14 points back was Brad Mickelson with 254 points to take runner-up honors. Greg Waller (2012 Bronze) finished 3rd with 247 points on a red-hot record of 21-4. Michael Berry (247 points, 20-5) and Derek Eisentrout (246, 21-4) finished in 4th and 5th place respectively.

And finally, bringing some college football champion redemption to the word "Boomer", BoomerBacks is the 2019 Group Play Champion, winning with an average of 1104.25 points. BoomerBacks was powered by #9 overall, Teddy Overton. BB won easily over 2nd place runner-up All in the Family, which finished with 1070.24 points led by #10 overall Gary Petti. Third place in Group Play for 2019 goes to multi-year group champion The Florida Dummies (Resurgence). We hope everyone enjoyed group play once again this year and were able to benefit from some side bets and bragging rights even if they weren't in championship running.

That's a wrap on another outstanding CFCC here at dirty-dawg.com. Meanwhile, we are in a two-week wait to crown a new Super Bowl Champion as well as a new PFCC Champion and don't forget the best College Basketball Tourney contest on the web coming in March. And of course we will be back here in August for another exciting season of dirty-dawg.com to celebrate the best time of the year. From all of here at dirty-dawg.com World HQ, thanks for playing!

CFCC Update: Down to Two Teams and Two Players

by: Sugar (January 6, 2020)


Happy 2020 from dirty-dawg.com! This marks the 4th decade of dirty-dawg greatness (first appeared on-line in 1999!!).

Louisiana (the one from Monroe) topped Miami (the one from Ohio) Monday night in, what we think, was the last bowl game of the 2019 season. And it was another entertaining run with several close games, but very few surprises. Minnesota had a big program win over Auburn and Utah laid a big egg in the Alamo Bowl, but otherwise it was a pretty straight-forward bowl blowout event, much to the chagrin of the dawgers that rolled the dice on a bunch of upsets.

Chris Charters, from lovely Owosso, Michigan is leading the pack after 24 bowl games with 220 points and a 19-5 record. However, many dawgs are just a few points off the leadership pace and huge swings can, and probably will occur, after the CFP National Championship game where double confidence points are on the line. Either way, great job Chris on navigating the first 24 bowls with expert precision. Ray Sondag and Luke T. (Luke is apparently in the witness protection program) have an incredible 21 wins each so far in the Bowl Blowout. Very impressive Ray and, whatever your name really is.

So, we are down to one big, big game and the only thing for sure is that the Tigers will win. LSU and Joe Burrow absolutely destroyed Oklahoma, by halftime, deflating the 15 dawgers that actually thought Joe Burrow would oversleep for the game, or otherwise suffer some sort of Heisman jinx. To be fair, Burrow and LSU would have destroyed almost any other team that they would have faced as well. There were clearly 3 great teams this year and then there were the rest. Clemson and Ohio State was a treat and although a cliche, it is too bad one of them had to lose. In the end, Dabo's and Trevor's experience trumped their worthy counterparts and they were able to scratch out a close victory. So, Clemson and LSU meet on January 13 for the CFP National Championship. We asked our director of IT services to run both scenarios forward but we found out he quit before the holidays. So, after some quick calculations on a Whataburger napkin, we determined that Doug Schneider (currently in 2nd place) will take home the Gold Bone if LSU wins and Andrew Kennedy (9th place) will receive the glory with a Clemson victory. Good luck to Doug and Andrew. This may be your 15 minutes of fame. We do need to recognize that Alisha Mize, last year's Bronze Bone winner is currently leading the contest, but with only 1 on LSU, she won't be bringing home the gold. Very impressive nonetheless. Brett Williams, who led the contest for the last several weeks has slipped to 4th place, but still has the most wins with 172. That's 2 better than Howard Shuler and Carl Lindecrantz, guaranteeing Brett best record honors for the season. Brett picked the Buckeyes to win it all, thus ending his chances to win the overall contest. Great season for Brett anyhow!

Boomerbacks have a commanding 18 point lead over All in the Family in Group Play. The napkin wasn't big enough to make the group calculations, but it looks like Boomerbacks will be tough to catch. Enjoy the CFP National Championship Game and we will be back here with a final wrap-up shortly after the game.

PFCC/NFL - Week 17 Wrap & 15 Minutes of Fame for Paducah

by: exRegionalWeenie (1/1/20)


Somehow, 17 weeks of NFL have already come and gone. Seems like it was just Labor Day weekend and we were getting ready for a whole new season, and now another year is shot in the books. All that remains is the Super Bowl Blowout. More on that later. But first...

...Week 17 Shout-outs
Peachtree City's John Schmidt took the crown for the Week 17 finale by grabbing 88 points. Not bad, John, especially in a week when the average score was 26. I guess you could say that John was the HIC (Headman-in-Charge) for Week 17. Jeffrey Overton had a nice week, too. He took second place with 80 points and was followed by John Martynuk (third), Alexander Overton (yes, another Overton; fourth) and Paducah's Pat Spoden (fifth). The rest of last week's Top 10 included Eric Seymour, Tom Morrill, Sean Poulos, Don Baker and Marty Mullen. Interestingly - or maybe not - each of those guys scored exactly the same (70 points).

Overall Standings after Week 17
Fort Wayne's Jane Banks took the lead in the year-to-date standings a week ago and held her position this past week. In fact, she added 4 points to her lead over Jeff Frame and Jerry Bailey who are both 20 points behind the leader. Paducah's Sean Poulos is in fourth place...while Paducah's Gregory Meffert is fifth overall. Hey, what the heck is in Paducah's water these days??

Group Play Standings
Ok, now we really need to test the water in Paducah. You know why? Check out the Group Play standings. The Padookie Quack Attack bills themselves as "A group of meteorologists from Paducah" and we find them doing really well at season's end. No, they're not in first place, but they are in second. As well as they're doing, we don't think they can advance further because they're 33 points behind the Hailraisers. This group of Penn Staters continued their multi-week dominance of first place and looks unbeatable heading into the Super Bowl Blowout.

Super Bowl Blowout Picks are due January 4
You stuck it out for 17 weeks and now it's time for the easy stuff. Now you just have to enter confidence factors for the 12 remaining playoff teams. Put a 12 on the team you think will win the Super Bowl and a 1 on the team you think has the least chance. For every game each team wins, you will get those points. Points are multiplied by a given factor depending on how deep into the playoffs the win occurs. Good luck and THANKS FOR PLAYING PFCC this year!
