Re: Flower, Cinnamon Stick, & Sabo


Northern Illinois @Sabo's Aztecs. For the second week in a row, Sabo's Aztecs had a game delayed. In a torrential downpour, halfway through the second quarter, the game was delayed over a hour by lightning. After play resumed, in lighter rain, and front of only a handful of diehards... they did something strange. They skipped halftime and just played on through.

Like last week with Stanford, SDSU was outplayed before the interruption... then Sabo's Aztecs were the better team afterwards. This time they ere down 0-9 before, and outscored the Falcons 28-15 afterwards.

Sabo's Aztecs have never lost to N.Illinois (5-0). I watched last year's matchup @DeKalb in Max Lager's microbrewery in Atlanta. Sabo's Aztecs won handily 42-28. Northern Illinois is 0-5 @SDCCU Stadium (inc 0-2 vs Aztecs). NIL's last visit in 2015 was for the now defunct Poinsettia Bowl, where Boise State slaughtered the Huskies 55-7. SDSU is -400 (-10 pts).


Golden Bears @Oregon. My Golden Bears played USC even for three quarters, but then USC scored 17 pts in ~six minutes. Take away a few takeaways/etc and Cal wins this game.

Oregon also lost last week, making them no longer undefeated or ranked. Regardless it's still a tough game... in the toughest part of the toughest FBS schedule. Cal leads the series on the field 40-38-2. At Autzen, Cal is 5-15 on the field. Cal won last season's meeting 52-49 @Memorial Stadium. Oregon is -700 (-15˝ pts).

Panthers @my Patriots. I finally saw my Pats... and what I saw was a miraculous comeback keyed by Tom Brady. Now... I'm used to cliff-hanger endings, but I'm haven't been used to my team actually winning them. Well... I guess this is how the other side lives.

This tv situation is trying my patience however. You'd think the defending champs would be all over the tv. Nope. None of the four semi-annoying practice games were on here. I missed the opening game, which was on tv, as Sabo & me were at the Nationals game. Then the next two Pats games were the CBS national games... but they crammed the LA teams, then last week the Buffalo team, down our tubes. This week, the Pats game isn't the Fox national game. And... we don't get either. Instead they will cram the lesser LA team down our tubes... a game so bad Fox punted on showing it in LA itself.

So I went to Lucky Lady two weeks ago (they only had the NFL Dead Zone), and Seven Mile last week. This week maybe... IDK, Barona maybe? The series is tied 3-3, including my Patriots win in Superb Owl XXXVIII (after 2003 season). The Panthers are 0-1 @Gilette Stadium. The Panthers won the last meeting 24-20 back on 2003-11-18. New England is -500 (-9 pts).

The Reds have won Sabo's Dog Day Championship for 2017. It was a long strange trip for the Reds... who became the first champion to lose a game (four in fact), while not leading the league in win percentage or games ahead. However, after the Reds had finished their dog game season, the correct teams lost in the correct order, giving the Reds the highest Record Difficulty Factor (RDF is chance that a .500 team would do worse).

They started the SDDC season back in March with a 1% chance of being champs, as per All-Star Sabo-Metrics. They won their first four dog games: @Pirates 4-11 (to 5%), Pirates 5-4 (to 6%), @Phillies 5-26 (to 11%), Cards 6-7 (to favorites at 16%). Then they came into the Barkyard... where Sabo's Padres swept them three 6-12,13,14 (down to 2%). They had a second four game winning streak: @Nationals 6-25 (to 3%), @D'backs 7-9 (to 8%), @Pirates 8-1 (to 16%), Mets 8-29 (to 17%). Prior to their last dog game on 9-21 they were favorites at 45%. But a loss to the Card's left them needing help at 16%.

Season #40The Original Fantasy League ⚾ Matchups #5 to #26

Team Go Sabo !!!1! in the playoffs !!!1!

Well, Team Go Sabo !!!1! ended up 13-11-1 in the Pointless League regular season, which was in the middle of the pack. However Sabo, this season's guest manager, used his patented Triple-P strategy to eek out a 48 point lead in Wildcard points. Which puts us in the head-2-head playoff with the regular season winner: the Mighty Team Bob Medina. This is a best of four series... where each round of the MLB playoffs constitutes a matchup.

So far, so good... as Team Go Sabo !!!1! leads 10-5 in categories halfway through the wild card round matchup. Oh yeah... if the series ends up tied, total Tiebreaker Points come into play. Team Go Sabo !!!1! leads in Tiebreaker Points too... 32-12.

Remember, this isn't quite a gratuitous sports post. Yapping/Taunting rights are in play. In fact, with my Red Sox once again in the playoffs, I asked the Pointless League Competition Committee to rule where we stand if my Red Sox win the World Series. This is what I got...

Week #6: Returning to Las Vegas (for) Bowl (Eligibility)

Sabo's Aztecs @UNLV.

The last time Sabo's Aztecs were in Boyd Stadium, they where whipping Houston in last season's Las Vegas Bowl 34-10. Saturday they hope to beat UNLV to become bowl eligible this season... for the 8th consecutive time, a program record. SDSU is 17-9 on the field vs UNLV. They are 7-7 @Boyd Stadium (inc 6-6 vs UNLV). The Aztecs won last years meeting @SDCCU 26-7. SDSU is -400 (-10˝ pts).

Last week Sabo's Aztecs eked out a win in a hardfought game vs a real good Northern Illinois team. Those Huskies might have even outplayed SDSU... but karma's a b**** sometimes as NIU linebacker Antonio Jones-Davis was caught on video eye gouging SDSU's star RB and kick returner Rashaad Penny (below).



Golden Bears @Washington. My Golden Bears got slaughtered by Oregon. The wheels really fell off in this game. It just keeps getting harder, as Cal makes it's second visit in two weeks to the PNW... to play #6 and undefeated Washington. Washington leads the series 53-39-4. My Golden Bears are 18-25-2 @Husky Stadium. The Husky's won last years meeting @Memorial Stadium 66-27. Washington is -5513 (-27˝ pts).

AP Rankings. Odds from vegasinsider.com. PDT. A gratuitous sports post.

my Patriots @Buc's. My Pats lost a close one to the Panthers. They've started out 2-2, already tieing their total losses last season. Speaking of last season... they started out 3-1 without Brady. Maybe he's lost it. Naw. The offense actually made another amazing drive to tie it up late. The problem was the defense, as it's been all season long. They allowed the Panthers to march on down for the winning score as time expired.

Next up: Tampa Bay. My Patriots lead the series 6-2. New England won the last meeting 23-3 @Gillette back on 2013-9-22. Amazingly enough, my Patriots have never played @Raymond James Stadium. New England is -250 (-5˝ pts).

Re: Flower, Cinnamon Stick, & Sabo

Season #40The Original Fantasy League ⚾ Matchup #27

Team Go Sabo !!!1! wins first playoffs matchup

Final:
1st Playoff Matchup (#26): Go Sabo !!!1! 10, Bob Medina 4.

Partials: (thru date #182)
2nd Playoff Matchup (#27): Bob Medina 12-0.
Tiebreaker Pts: Bob Medina 83-78.

Well, Team Go Sabo !!!1! won the wildcard matchup, and so only needs to win two-of-three of the remaining playoff matchups to clinch the Pointless League championship.

On the other side of the Yapping Rights "doubleheader", my Red Sox got whipped 2-8 @Houston... meaning they'll need to win three-of-four to advance to the divisive round of the playoffs. I'm committed to going to a World Series game if my Red Sox play in LA (3% chance projected by All-Star Sabo-Metrics), or Phoenix (1%). Today's line is: Red Sox (Pomeranz) +161; Astros (Keuchel) -171 at vegasinsider.com.

Tiebreaker Pts: Go Sabo !!!1! 176-142.

Astros @Red Sox (Divisive #3, today 11:35 pdt)
After three (of 6-8) days, team Go Sabo !!!1! is still trailing Bob Medina, but have got back into this game of categories. As to the tiebreaker points, which only come into play if the series ends up tied, Go Sabo has opened up a 34 point lead (below). On the "flipside" of this possible Yapping Rights tourney... well, my Red Sox return home, to play their 7th straight game against the Astros. It's looking desperate, as they're down 0-2 in this best-of-3 series. But, as I'll never tire of pointing out to Yankee fans... they've been farther down in bigger spots, and came back. The line at vegasinsider.com is Houston (Peacock) -130 @Boston (Fister) +120. Go Red Sox !!!1!

Re: Flower, Cinnamon Stick, & Sabo

Season #40The Original Fantasy League ⚾ Matchup #27-#6
Finals:

Red Sox 2 @Astros 8 (Divisive #2, 10-6).
Astros 3 @Red Sox 10 (Divisive #3, 10-8).
Astros 5 @Red Sox 4 (Divisive #4, 10-9).

Partials:
Bob Medina 13 -vs- Go Sabo !!!1! 5 (Divisive Round #27, thru day #5).
Tiebreaker Pts: Go Sabo !!!1! 231-213.
After five (of 7-8) days, team Go Sabo !!!1! is still trailing Bob Medina, and have fallen farther behind in this game of categories. It might seem that's there plenty of time left in this matchup... but, those 2-3 remaining days are all single games. They do retain a miniscule lead in tiebreaker points... which again, only come into play if the matchup series ends up tied (below). On the "flipside" of this Yapping Rights tourney... well, my Red Sox were eliminated yesterday morning, so there is no "flipside" anymore. So, to review: if team Go Sabo !!!1! wins the Pointless League, which both Sabo & me a hoping for, Sabo would have has Yapping Rights over me, and I'd have Taunting Rights over the entire league. Otherwise, I retain my Yapping Rights over Sabo, and the league champion would have Taunting Rights over me.

Re: Flower, Cinnamon Stick, & Sabo

Season #40The Original Fantasy League ⚾ Matchup #27-#7
Final:
Go Sabo !!!1! 10 -vs- Bob Medina 4 (Wild Round #26, 10-3 to 4).

Partials:
Bob Medina 11 -vs- Go Sabo !!!1! 7 (Divisive Round #27, thru day #6).
Tiebreaker Pts: Go Sabo !!!1! 263-223.
Well, the rainout in Chi-town yesterday condensed the schedule, while the Nats win there today extended it. This is it... day #7 for all the marbles... in the Divisive Round matchup that is. Team Go Sabo !!!1! has moved back within striking distance... although it will be hard to flip enough catagories with only one game. They have lengthened their lead in tiebreaker points to 40... which again, only come into play if the matchup series ends up tied (below).

Re: Flower, Cinnamon Stick, & Sabo


My Patriots @Jets. The time has come to 're-purpose' the Rivalry Bowl. For 21 seasons, 1961 to 1981, then again for 22 seasons, 1995 to 2016, the Rivalry Bowl was designated as the annual San Diego @Oakland game. The bowl was on hiatus 1982 to 1994 while the NFL didn't field a team in Oakland. Now, not counting lame ducks, the NFL has abandoned both of these cities. So, let it be known...

The Competition Committee has made the following official rulings (a) the two 1960 AFL Boston-New York games are retroactively designated Rivalry Bowls, (b) going forward New England games against any New York city team, at any venue, will be designated as Rivalry Bowls, (c) to obscure things sufficiently, Rivalry Bowls will be renumbered with roman numerals.

Last week my Patriots eked out 19-14 win over the Buc's. The defense did OK this game, holding the scoring significantly down, and holding firm on the inevitable last drive. This time the offense was inconsistent. All-in-all... this hasn't been the championship quality team of last year, so far at least.

New England lead the Titans/Jets series 61-54-1. This includes 2-0 in Rivalry Bowls, 1-1 in the playoffs, and 2-0 last season. My Patriots are 5-2 @Metlife Stadium, including 4-2 against the Jets. New England is -500 (-9˝ pts).

Boise State @Sabo's Aztecs. Last week Sabo's Aztecs slaughtered UNLV to become bowl eligible. It was actually a second-half slaughter, as UNLV kept it close in the first half. Next up: Boise State. This is another huge game for the program if they want to take it to the next level. Boise has been the class of the Mountain West, and have been off the Aztec's schedule the last two seasons. If SDSU wants to be thought of being in the cream of the G5 crop, they gotta show they beat the BMOC (Big Machine in Conference) on the field.

The SDSU-Boise State series is tied 2-2. The Broncos are 2-2 @the Union (aka San Diego County Credit Union Stadium)... include 1-1 vs SDSU. Boise State won the last meeting 38-29 on the blue turf @Albertson Stadium back on 2014-11-15. SDSU is -210 (-6˝ pts).

AP Rankings. Odds from vegasinsider.com. PDT. A gratuitous sports post.

Washington State @my Golden Bears. Last week my Golden Bears got creamed in Seattle. It wasn't as close as the 7-38 score indicates. Cal's offense was pitiful... the seven points were garbage time. The defense sucked too. And so, for another year, the dream of the Roses dies again. Cal isn't quite eliminated from the P12 championship, but wins this week by Washington (-1000) & Washington State would accomplish that too.

If playing with short rest is harder... it just keeps getting harder for my Golden Bears in this killer four-game stretch. Next up: undefeated #8 Washington State. My Golden Bears lead the series 46-27-5... including 29-12-3 @Memorial Stadium. The Cougars won last year's meeting 56-21 @Pullman WA. Washington State is -800 (-16˝ pts).

Finals:
Go Sabo !!!1! 10 -df- Bob Medina 4 (Wild Round #26, 10-3 to 4).
Bob Medina 13 -df- Go Sabo !!!1! 5 (Divisive Round #27, 10-5 to 10-12)

Partials:
Bob Medina 7 -vs- Go Sabo !!!1! 7 (Legion Round #28, thru day #2).
Tiebreaker Pts: Go Sabo !!!1! 315-313.
Team Go Sabo !!!1! went on to lose the second playoff matchup. That means we're going the limit... all the way through the World Series. Things could hardly be closer.... we're now tied 1-1 in playoff matchup, the third matchup is tied at 7-7 through 2 days (of 6-10), and team Go Sabo !!!1! has a meager two point lead in Tiebreaker Points (below).
