Week 7, Not So Lucky--AGAIN!
by Shudda, Cudda, Wudda
For the second year in a row, College Football Week 7 has shown four upsets in the Top 10. In 2018 Week 7 we had six Dirty Dawg upsets overall including the #2 Georgia, #6 West Virginia, #7 Washington, and #8 Penn State. Might wanna schedule your Bye Week for Week 7 next year, like Clemson and Oklahoma did this year.
Catching up on the Dirty Dawg Standings for Weeks 6 & 7, Alisha Mize, Buda, TX moved into 1st Place in Week 6 and held onto the top spot this week. Mr. Red, SFO, after holding #2 in Weeks 4 & 5, slipped to 5th place in Week 6, but bumped up to #2 again for Week 7. Matthew O'Neill, also Buda, TX, continues in the Top 3 for three straight weeks. Ross Allen who was 3rd after Week 6, still hangs in the Top 10 at #6 for Week 7.
For Week 6 scores, as mentioned before Alisha Mize, moved into 1st place; well she did so by posting the High Score for Week 6 at 103, the only triple-digit score, blasting her from #13 to #1. Speaking of blasting, Herman Rice was 2nd Place in Week 6 with 99 and blasted up 181 places, now it #62, and tied for third were Kendrick Peters and Michael Pulis at 95, with Kendrick's high score vaulting him into the Top 10 at #6.
For the scores in Week 7, whew, kinda smelly, but not surprising with four Top 10s falling. The average score was 20.9, but Andy Patrick, Lake Charles, LA, placed his Confidence numbers with great skill. Andy missed five picks, but with Confidence factors of 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8, for a week's high score of 84. Yes, for Dirty Dawg Rookies, your Confidence placement is just as important as your Winner. We have had lots of blown 15s lately! For Week 7, Jerald Meadows, Vaisala, CA was #2 with 78, and Tom Hurley, Gulf Shores, AL, was #3 with 72.
In Group Play, All in the Family, has shown amazing consistency, being in the Top 2 since Week 3, and holding #1 for Weeks 6 & 7. Behind "Family", there has been a minor shake-up. For Week 6, Dawgzilla was #2 and the High Plains Drifters were #3, but both of them got jumped by Morass of Ordinary Effort who jumped from #4 in Week 6 to #2 now.
Just realized something...you might not want me picking the games any more--not because of the games, but the only two weeks I've had the responsibility for picking games resulted in Major Hurricanes striking the U.S. We sincerely hope that those of you affected by Florence are now finding some normalcy in your lives, and that those of you affected by Michael, will have a speedy recovery.
Looking ahead to Week 8--good games--including Clemson hosting NC State, LSU hosting Miss St, Michigan at Michigan St, and Oregon visiting the Pirate, Mike Leach, at Washington St. Remember, careful distributing your Confidence factors!
