DFC X Week Five Games

All times Central, all rankings from AP Poll

4. LSU Tigers (4-0) at 18. Georgia Bulldogs (3-1), 230p, CBS
What is fun about this game is LSU's #4 ranking... its not so much they are a Top Five team, its more that the pollsters couldn't figure out how to rank anyone beyond Florida, Texas and Alabama.

Washington Go You Huskies (2-2) at Notre Dame Fightin' Irish (3-1), 230p, NBC
I know, I know, another Irish game... but I'm intrigued not just by the Irish, but also about whether Washington & QB Jake Locker are actually decent, or just lucked out over USC. This looks to be the weekly Most Important Game of Weis' Career.

Auburn Tigers (4-0) at Tennessee Vols (2-2), 645p, ESPN
Maybe its quality of wins, maybe its how they are winning, but really--what more does Auburn have to do to get ranked?

8. Oklahoma Sooners (2-1) at 17. Miami Hurricanes (2-1), 7p (how is this game not listed on TV?)
Perhaps their loss to Va Tech was the best thing for the Miami Hurricanes. It seems becoming the "darling of the BCS" is a curse (see: Oklahoma State, then BYU, then Miami) because it dooms you to fail. If Miami had come in 3-0, the guys on ESPN Gameday might have had their heads explode.

Baltimore Ravens (3-0) at New England Patriots (2-1), 12p, CBS
I'll be honest--I was surprised the Pats handled the Falcons the way they did... so maybe this is the real test this week for Brady.

Tampa Bay Bucs (0-3) at Washington Redskins (1-2), 12p, Fox
Its one of the DFC's old favorites... ladies & gentlemen, the Crap O'the Week!

New York Football Jets (3-0) at New Orleans Saints (3-0), 305p, CBS
If you were told before the season that marquee game of the NFL's Week 4 that didn't include Brett Favre would include the Jets and Saints, you wouldn't believe it.

Green Bay Packers (2-1) at Minnesota Vikings (3-0), Monday night, 730p, ESPN
Admit it. Your curious. Whether you root for Favre, or you want to see the Packer fans throw batteries at Favre's head, your curious.

Tiebreak Game
NYJets at New Orleans Saints... lets see Sanchez & Brees go at it.

DFC X Week Four Results

Its just one of those weeks were I struggled to find four compelling college games, which means by the week's end, I'll know of at least 2 games with great storylines and great matchups that we should have chosen... but as it is...

Georgia Tech 24, 22. North Carolina Tarheels 7
11. Virginia Tech 31, 9. Miami 7
NC State 38, Pittsburgh 31
15. TCU 14, Clemson 10

Tennessee Titans (0-2) at NYJets (2-0), 12p, CBS
Atlanta Falcons (2-0) at New England Patriots (1-1), 12p CBS
Denver Broncos (2-0) at Oakland Raiders (1-1), 315p, CBS
Indianapolis Colts (1-0) at Arizona Cardinals (1-1), 720p, NBC

For one of the only times (might be the only time, as I didn't see it in the DFC Archives) we have a first time weekly winner for the 3rd week in a row. In his 2nd season in the DFC, Jason Roberts takes his first weekly win with a solid 6-2 record. Sunshine Lori Beirne also continues her strong season, tying with rookie Stevie Ray in his best week for 2nd, both going 6-2.

Yours Truly takes 4th, while veteran James Hawbaker takes 5th, Jonny Osborne in 6th and Big Eddy McBroom is in 7th, all at 6-2. Rookie Dan Sellers goes 5-3, good enough for 8th, while rookie Brad Latta ties with Jason Turnbow at 5-3, to round out the Top Ten at 9th.

Also Finishing
5-3: Zack Graves, Tommy McLeod, Trey Cartledge, Tom Johnson, The Mighty Gainey, Ryan Sherman, Gina Roose, Tyler Campbell, Garrett Cheney, Eddy McB Jr, The Big Wasyluka
4-4: DMOsborne, Hurricane Rhett, Chris Croyle, Jenn Ernst, Scott Latta, Jason Duren, Daniel Powell

The Week That Was
Welcome to the DFC, Hurricane Rhett Barnett. For the second week in a row, a rookie takes the weekly win, as Rhett goes 7-1, and does something no one else has ever done... nailed the tiebreak (55) in his weekly win.

The successfuly week continues as James Hawbaker takes 2nd, The Mighty Gainey takes 3rd, Joey Thornell is in 4th and Big Eddy takes 5th, all with 7-1 records. In 6th, Eddy the Younger also goes 7-1.

In 7th, Jason Duren has a 7-1 record, with 8th going to Scotty Latta at 6-2. Older brother Matt with 6-2 finishes 9th, and rounding out the Weekly Top Ten, Tad Roose with 6-2

LIES, DARN LIES & STATISTICS (the shortened, just got back from vacation edition)
  • Perhaps its a jinx I'm throwing on him, but stand up for Big Eddy McBroom. Fifth on the All Time Win List, and in the DFC for his 9th season this year, he now sits atop the DFC Power Poll for the first time. The DFC Power Poll began in DFC IV, and Eddy has never come in at #1 in the overall poll.
  • In fact, in DFC IV, Big Eddy spent the entire season in the Top Five, including 2 weeks at #2 (sitting behind his own son, Eddy Jr) and 1 week at #2 behind Sunshine Lori Beirne... and since then, he's fallen on harder times. In DFC V, he only could get to 10th place, in DFC VI, VII, VIII and XI, he spent a total of 2 weeks out of the 48 in the Top 12. Is he back? We'll see.
  • Another uprising that was even less expected was Tyler Campbell, who has spent a grand total of 5 weeks out of his career 60 weeks (five seasons). He got to #3 once, Week 10 of DFC VII, but hasn't seen the Top 12 since. Considering he's in my division, let's hope that he doesn't continue this success.

DFC X... Week Three

Note... I'll be out of the state from Thursday night to Monday night, so you won't see any updates until late Monday night, or possibly Tuesday morning. I will send out a 'reminder' email on Thursday, but after that, you forget, you go 0-8!

18. Utah Utes (2-0) at Oregon Ducks (1-1), 2:30p, ESPN
Michael Nipp's pick... Another huge non-conference game for the Ducks early in the season. They got quacked by Boise State in their first game and was able to cause the Boilermakers to lose some steam last weekend. Autzen Stadium can be a daunting place for many an opponent but the Utes have proven to many a team that they mean business (Roll Tide.. what???)

19. Nebraska Cornhuskers (2-0) at 13. Virginia Tech Hokies (1-1), 230p, ABC
Am I the only one who really wants the Cornhuskers to be good again? I mean, really? Who gives a rip about the Irish, I want Nebraska to be relevant again, and when they Oklahoma, for it to be a really big deal, not a stepping stone on their way to play Texas or whatever. Like, Solich should still be there, I give you that, but even now, I want them to be better. Oh, they play Va Tech here.

Michigan State Spartans (1-1) at Notre Dame Fightin' Irish (1-1), 230p, NBC
NBC and ESPN are almost in hysterics for the Fightin' Irish to be good. They took out a relatively decent Nevada team, and suddenly QB Jimmy Clausen was being touted as a possible Heisman candidate, and suddenly, they were destined not only for a BCS bowl, but possibly a BCS Championship slot and... then they lost to Michigan. As far as the Spartans go, they beat Montana State, as they should, but lost by 2 to Central Michigan, for the first time since 92. Forget Michigan--THIS will be a game Chuck Weis will be judged by.

West Virginia Mountaineers (2-0) at Auburn Tigers (2-0), 645p
Led by Pat White (?) last year, The WVU thrashed the Tigers last year, but these aren't your usual Tigers. Actually, after beating down La Tech and a possibly good, possibly terrible Missisippi State team, we don't know who these Tigers are. But who are the Mountaineers? They are a 2-0 team, but to get there, they beat Liberty by 13 and East Carolina by 15, but gave up 20 to both teams.

New Orleans Saints (1-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (1-0), 12p, Fox
Drew Brees, who had a monster game and threw for what, 2877 yards and 46 touchdowns, just happened to be the starting QB for the guy's fantasy football team that I happened to be against this past week. So yeah, I lost. But I picked Vick in my fantasy league... and I still hold by it. I said, "McNabb is going down in Week Five, Vick will take over with everything to prove." Okay, so it happened in Week One, and Vick can't play til next week...

Carolina Panthers (0-1) at Atlanta Falcons (1-0), 12p, Fox
Really? They were 12-4 last year, and Delhomme had a bad playoff game... can the Panthers really be this bad? And the Falcons? Yeah, they beat the Fins, but it is possible that Matt Ryan isn't a fluke? Really?

Seattle Seahawks (1-0) at San Francisco 49ers (1-0), 305p, Fox
Uh.... not a clue. I barely can speak coherently about other games, but this one, I really have no idea. Pick 'em.

The New York Football Giants (1-0) at Dallas Cowboys (1-0), 720p, NBC
Personally, I'm on Team Peyton and not Team Eli, but whatever. I just want to see the kicker put that ball in the scoreboard.

TieBreak Game... Utah vs Oregon, total points scored...
Its a foregone conclusion that 97% of the DFC will pick Utah over Oregon... so let's make it the TB Game.

The Week That Was
Welcome to the DFC, Lt Dan Sellers... he becomes the first rookie of the season to win a week in our league. Its the first time that a rookie has won a week since DFC VIII's Week 12, when Drew Morris tied with rookies Ken Mackey and Trey Cartledge to win, and the first time outright since Zack Graves won Week 12 in DFC VI. Dan went 6-2 in his win.

Second place was much better than last week's Top 10, speaking of Trey Cartledge, he took the 2nd spot, while Sunshine Lori Beirne took 3rd. All three were 6-2. Also at 6-2, in 4th for the week, was Tad "The Dynasty" Roose, and in a 2-way tie for 5th, Zack Graves and Matt Latta.

Coming in 7th, Big Eddy McBroom at 6-2, tying with his son, Eddy the Junior, and in 9th is Drew Morris. Rounding out your top ten this week is a three way tie between Matt Halpert, Scott Latta and Yours Truly.

DFC X Week Two Games

Something new starts this week... YOU get to pick a game. Well, I mean, you get to decide on a game that we pick. We'll loop around to everyone in the league, but we'll start with the original DFC'ers (this week is Matt Latta)... his game choice and his write up is below.

Notre Dame Fightin' Irish at Michigan Wolverines, 230p, ABC

UCLA Bruins at Tennessee Volunteers, 3p, ESPN

Mississippi State Bulldogs at Auburn Tigers, 6p

USC Trojans at Ohio State Buckeyes, 7p ESPN

Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers, 730p, Fox

Miami Dolphins at Atlanta Falcons, 12p, CBS

Philadelphia Eagles at Carolina Panthers, 12p, Fox

Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers, 720p, NBC
Matt Latta writes... The first Sunday night game of the year gives the winner a quick advantage in the NFC North, where one of the wild card teams in the NFC will likely come from. For Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers is back after proving last year that he can hold his own against the history in Green Bay. The defense should be improved this year, but may struggle a little at first as they adjust to the new 3-4 scheme. Chicago somehow pulled off one of the most lopsided trades in NFL history sending Kyle Orton to Denver for Jay Cutler (if i was a Broncos fan, i would be so depressed- kinda like being a Mississippi State fan i guess...) who will have a dynamic RB Matt Forte and the typical strong Bears defense backing him up. For entertainment purposes only (of course) Vegas favors the Packers by 3.5 (home field is worth 3 points in vegas), but we all know Lambeau Field isnt as intimidating in September as it is in December.

Coming in 2nd was Daniel Powell at 4-4, followed by Sarah Hasha, also at 4-4. Gina Roose took 4th, Tyler Campbell took 5th, Scott Latta was in 6th, Ryan Sherman was in 7th, and rookies Brad Latta and Rhett Barnett took 8th & 9th--all at 4-4. Rounding out the Top 10 was Lori Beirne at 3-5.

  • Statistically, and record wise, this was the worst week in the ten year history of the DFC. Not only was it a record number of 1-7 records (8), it also marks the first time in DFC history that only one person (Yours Truly) finished above .500
  • Matt Latta has his worst week ever, finishing 1-7 for the first time in his 10 years. David Mark Osborne finished 1-7 for only the second time ever, the first since Week 12 of DFC IV in 2003.
  • Not only did three time world champion Tad Roose have his worst week ever, he's actually only had one single week that he went 2-6, back in Week 3 of DFC IV. Jason Duren has had 2 weeks of 1-7, but both were in his rookie season of DFC IV.
  • Even Garrett Cheney, who has been... well, bad, has only finished 1-7 once before (Week 8 of DFC VI).
  • And finally, here's a stat for you... NO ONE in the history of the DFC has ever started the season 1-7 or 2-6 and made the playoffs. With this many people this week, there is a good chance that stat will change, but there it is.
  • Only three times has there ever been a won by a 5-3 record... and who did it? DFC Hall of Famer Wookiee Fulaytar did it in Wk 10 in DFC I, and Yours Truly did it in Wk 7 of DFC VII... and then again, this week.
  • Among the streaks that ended this week was Matt Latta's +.500 streak (finishing at 5-3 or better in consecutive weeks) at 17. The current longest streak is now Yours Truly's at 5 weeks
  • Another streak that ended was Trey Cartledge's .500 streak (finishing 4-4 or better in consecutive weeks) at 19.
  • Rookie recap... hopping out to a very, very early Rookie of the Year lead (if they can pick Heisman candidates in August, then I can go RotY on ya) is Brad Latta and Rhett Barnett, who both finished a respectable 4-4. Others were not so lucky, as Dan Sellers went 2-6, while Steven Ray finished up 1-7, though he shares the Central Division cellar with Jason Duren and Garrett Cheney.
  • NFL starts next week... lets hope for some better results...
