Week 12 Football Highlights
CFCC Week 12 looked like it would be only marginally interesting with several teams playing non-conference "directional teams" before next week's Rivalry Week, but the day offered many edge-of-your-seat games with 8 of the Top 14 CFP teams winning by 3 points or less and four of these teams outright losing. The biggest upset of the day was South Carolina over #5 Tennessee, but that one looked so unlikely it wasn't even on our sheet!
There were 4 upsets in our slate of games with two of them in the icy upper Midwest where Iowa upset Minnesota and Texas Tech upset Iowa State. The other two upsets were Arkansas bouncing back and upsetting Ole Miss 42-27 and #12 Oregon with a slight upset of #10 Utah. Now that we are into the latter half of November there is more "Football Weather" occurring. We looked for some cold weather games to include, with many of them being played below freezing, seeing every player's steamy breath. There were not any games with Heavy Snow on Saturday as seemingly all the snow in the Northern Hemisphere was dumping downstream of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
Dirty Dawg Play
For CFCC Week 12, Ted Champney had a No Hitter, going 14-0 and scoring a weekly max of 119 (with one point vacated from the cancelled Coastal Carolina v Virginia game). In 2nd Place this week was Kelly Sink with 113, and 3rd Place was Amber Hluchan with 110.
CFCC Year-to-Date Standings
In the overall standings, Dick Wagenmaker, Dirty Dawg Charter Member, slid into the lead moving from #2 to #1. Dick has been biding his time, being in the Top 5 for the past 6 weeks and in 2nd Place for the past three weeks. Pat Spoden bumped up from #3 to #2 and Alisha Mize surged up from #7 to #3. Todd Hamill (last week's #1) is still within striking distance, now at #6.
CFCC Group Play Standings
In Group Play, All in the Family still continues in 1st Place, with The Florida Dummies and the BuckNutz swapping places with BuckNutz now #2 and The Florida Dummies #3.
Looking ahead to Rivalry Week
Rivalry Week is already here, with the Egg Bowl (Miss State v Ole Miss) Thanksgiving Night, four games on Black Friday, but still a full 14 hours of games on Saturday headlined by #3 Michigan at #2 Ohio State. Good luck everyone!
