Welcome Back Big Ten, Mountain West, and a Full Day of Games


by Shudda, Cudda, Wudda


After serving almost two months under an Abundance of Caution and Back-Peddling the Big Ten and Mountain West resumed games this week, and with some Pacific Time Zone teams now playing we had our first 14-hour day this year! Still gotta wait until November 7th (our Week 9) before the Pac 12 gets started. In the Big Ten, Ohio State looked in mid-season form, Michigan had surprisingly little trouble on the road at frozen Minnesota, and Indiana's OT upset of Penn State reminded us that football is a game of inches as the replay officials disected the replay and parts of the football itself to decide that game.

Elsewhere many of our favored teams won easily, but besides Indiana we did have three other upsets--Texas Tech winning at home over West Virginia, Cincinnati blowing out SMU on the road, and San Jose State grounding Air Force 17-6 at home.

For the week, we had CFCC six players with 100+ points, with Dale Parra taking the crown at 108 and Ted Champney at 106. The average score was a not-too-humiliating 62.3. In the overall standings, Ted Champney used his 106 to spring him to #1 this week after drafting behind Michael Orosco for the past couple of weeks. But Ted only has a 10 point lead over Michael, as the two of them have a pretty good cushion over the rest of the Top 10. Ted successfully picked the Indiana, Texas Tech, and Cincinnati upsets--Wow! Way-to-go, Bro!

In group play Dawgzilla (#1) , The Andy Griffith Show (#2), and Bucknutz (#3) lead with way, with Andy and Buck swapping 2nd and 3rd this week.

As we head to Week 8, on paper it looks like a quiet weekend with only one game matching Top 25 teams, with a very-muted White-Out in Happy Valley as Ohio State visits an angry Penn State Saturday night. Good Luck everybody!

Socially Distanced PFCC Update

by: Sugar (October 14, 2020)


Here at dirty-dawg.com we like to say that football season is the best time of the year. But saying something is the best of 2020 doesn't quite weigh the same as it does most years, does it? We are through 5 weeks of dirty-dawg for 2020 and it's been a wild ride thus far. Trying to navigate positive C-19 tests, cancelled games, postponed games, periodic civil unrest and political bickering has made it difficult on almost everyone. So far, we have been able to keep the contest running, but we know the weekly summaries have been socially distanced. Our masked-up and low-budget operation will continue to do the best we can.

With the disclaimers and excuses out of the way, lets all throw some praise on Barb Mayes Boustead for leading PFCC the last 3 weeks! Barb is currently holding off Tyler Castillo of Corpus Christi, Texas and Matthew O'Neill of Buda, Texas by 2 points. Darren Scherer and Tom Fannin are in 4th and 5th places respectivelly. Darren led PFCC after Week 1 and Tom Fannin led after Week 2, before Barb took over the lead after 3 weeks in. A group of weather forecasters and alumni from National Weather Service Jacksonville, FL, playing under group name "The Teal Curtain" are enjoying a 9+ point lead over Desert Dawgs to lead PFCC Group Standings.

Week 5 PFCC honors go to dirty-dawg veteran Chris Darden from Birminghmam, Alabama going 10-3 with 86 points. And what do you know, occasionally a dirty-dawg founding father enjoys some brief glory. For Week 5 that would be Dick Wagenmaker from Brighton, Michigan finishing Week 5 with runner-up honors with 84 points and a 11-2 record. Dick does tend to score better during weeks that the Detroit Lions don't play.

We already mentioned that Darren Scherer won Week 1. Monte Oaks, Tom Morrill, Zach Sefcovic and Barb Boustead all posted perfect scores to win Week 2. Cyndi Pulis and Tyler Castillo shared Week 3 honors with 90 points each with Andrew Tocci winning Week 4 with 91 points.

Okay, that catches us up with PFCC for a few days. Remember, group play will be closing in 2-3 weeks so make sure to let us know via email which dead-weight players you want to jettison before we close the door on changes. We will get an email out on that as soon as we decide on the week. Otherwise, make sure to keep up with all game changes. We do the best we can to keep up, but occasionally fail miserably. If all of our socially distanced staff members stay healthy, you will see another write-up sooner than later. If we don't, this might be it until the Super Bowl. Either way, enjoy the season and we hope this offers a little distraction from the rest of the world happenings. Thanks for playing dirty-dawg.com!

CFCC Week 3: One and Dunn

by: exRegionalWeenie (10/2/20)


Big Boy football returned (mostly) in Week 3 as the Big 12 and SEC started their seasons. Thankfully, our Week 3 games included Florida, Auburn, Oklahoma State, LSU and Texas. Sure beats picking teams like Eastern Kentucky, Houston Baptist (seriously, did you even know they played football?) and Louisiana. Now we just need the Big 10 and PAC 12 to join in... and for everyone to stay safe.

Week 3 Player Results: One and Dunn
Two Texans - Michael Pulis from Kyle and J.r. Dunn from Rowlett - led the field last week. Both went 11-2 with 91 points to tie for first place. Joe Benzel also went 11-2 but scored 89 points so he ended up being third. We had a 5-way tie for fourth place between Ashley Ravenscraft, Brian Boyd, Ted Champney, Jon Zeitler, and Fernando Salas, all with 87 points. Cuss Rodder and Mark Wiley rounded out the Top 10 scores from Week 3.

Overall Standings after 3 Weeks: Familiar Names
Since we're so early in the season, you would think Week 3 high scorers would place high in the year-to-date overall standings. You would be correct. Michael Pulis is the leader and is just 2 points ahead of Ted Champney. Week 1 winner Michael Orosco is third overall and is followed closley by Aiden Binau and Fernando Salas. There are five more names in the Top 10 but laziness precludes listing them here.

Nuts. I feel guilty. So, here are the remaining Top 10 overall point leaders after 3 weeks: Nick Hampshire, Michael Grover, Raymond Jojola, Mark "Operation" Condor and Chris Charters. There. Now I can sleep at night.

Group Play Standings: Dawgzilla Leads
Dawgzilla leads the group play standings.Their team motto is, "We're ready to take seventh place" but they're in first right now, so maybe they plan to stink the rest of the year. If that happens, teams likely to take over first place include BuckNutz and The Andy Griffith Show as they're in second and third place, respectively, after 3 weeks. Fourth place belongs to MVFRs who are clearly a bunch of weather weenies. Aviation weather weenies. Scurvy Dawgs complete the Top 5 in group play.
