Congratulations to Aaron Cobb. His Dogs of War defeated the defending the 2012 champions in the OIL Bowl. This is Cobb's first OIL championship.
He overcame injuries to, among others, Arian Foster, Jermichael Finley, and Wes Welker on his way to the championship.
The Dogs of War finished the regular season with the third-highest point total in the league. They finished the season 10-6. He'll soon receive the Harrington Trophy in the mail, just in time for Christmas.
The Arrogant Americans finished 9-7 after going into the playoffs with the most points in the league. They've now been to four OIL Bowls and won two of them.
The Dogs of War overcame a first half injury to Steve Smith to win the OIL Bowl. His RB trio of Reshard Mendenhall, Marcel Reece, and Bilal Powell each outscored the number one overall pick, Adrian Peterson.
Peyton Manning outscored Tom Brady by 30 points and Steven Hauschka had his worst game of the season for the Arrogant Americans.
The Dogs of War will now represent the OIL in World War IV against the winners of the MGL and the Norse.
The Dogs of War take on the defending champion Arrogant Americans at noon CST today for the Harrington Trophy.
Cobb's Dogs of War have disappointed thus far this season, but week six proved to be just the medicine the Dogs needed to get back on track. The Dogs of War blew out DominationStation by a final tally of 162.05 - 76.7. After hearing of his dominating performance, Cobb has this to say, "Seriously? I just realized I forgot to update my lineup. Hell yeah! I've been drunk since last weekend." Although the win was a big one, Cobb still finds himself in 12th place. It will take several more weeks of 160+ points to dig himself out of that hole.
Jessen was on the wrong end of this week's biggest blowout, losing handily after posting a meager 76.7 points. With his starting QB on a bye, his replacement was injured in the first quarter of MNF, giving Jessen an amazing 3.45 points. Two more starters posted goose eggs for the 'Station. The loss drops Jessen into 8th place, but he is still very much alive in the playoff hunt.
The 2010 schedules have been saved to the Yahoo! page. Each member will play every other member once each. Cobb finally registered his team, so I did the scheduling this afternoon.
Finch finally sent in a photo for his page, as well. Life outside of the Guard hasn't been good for him.
