BACKYARD BRAWL NUMBER 105?

West Virginia’s 49-19 rout of Iowa State highlighted the characteristic that defines the 2016 Mountaineers – resilience. Coming off a very disappointing showing against Oklahoma, where the team got caught up in retaliation rather than playing, the question was whether or not WVU could rally from a disheartening loss to play well on the road – and on Thanksgiving weekend, no less. West Virginia’s coaches, especially head man Dana Holgorsen, were quite aware of the challenge. Before the lights had even been shut off at Mountaineer Field, Holgorsen was talking of the tough week of preparation to come. He knew that the letdown of the OU game, coupled with the trip to Iowa State, stood a good chance of seeing a less than enthusiastic effort. With that in mind, he set out with a goal of matching the vigor he expected to see from the Cyclones, and made that a point of emphasis during the week’s practices. The results couldn’t have been better. From the locker room to the sidelines to the field, Holgorsen proclaimed himself very pleased with the intensity, effort and emotion shown by his team, and noted that he felt that was a key to West Virginia’s win. Before this game, ISU had dropped four contests at home, losing by five, four, five and ten points. That last defeat came to the same Oklahoma team that ran away from the Mountaineers, and confirmed the notion that the Cyclones are always a tough out at home. That WVU was able to run up a 30-point margin,

especially while hampered with injuries that piled up faster than empty Red Bull cans on the Mountaineer sideline, was a testament to the way it was able to respond. With one more regular season game to go, the grind isn’t over, but unless things go awry West Virginia figures to face an ACC team in the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando. While several potential candidates are on the list, could it be any better than if the Mountaineers would draw Pitt? Florida State, Miami, Virginia Tech and North Carolina are also potential foes, but there’s no more natural opponent than the Panthers. With WVU opening the 2017 season against the Hokies, it’s not likely the bowl and ESPN would be so tone deaf as to pair them against the Mountaineers, and the others might already be destined for bowls a spot above or below the RAB. A move of the Backyard Brawl to Disney’s rear lawn could be in order.

JUST DESSERTS Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Our family's was special. Mom had Thanksgiving in her DNA and I will always be thankful for her. As always there was turkey on the table at our house, but there were no turkeys on the television in the great games that were played over the weekend ... no turkeys with the possible exception of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh who blamed his team’s loss to Ohio State on the officials. WALLY's Harbaugh’s post TECHNICAL game rant reminded ANALYSIS me of something that Fred Wyant (former WVU QB and long time NFL official) once told me about what he told coaches when

W A L L Y ' S

&

W I M P Y ' S

they blamed him for a loss. Fred’s retort was, “No coach, I may have made one call that had an effect on the outcome, but your players made the plays that really cost you the game.” (By the way, congratulations to Fred for recently being named by Fansided as the best college quarterback ever born in the state of West Virginia.) Fred's right. To Coach Harbaugh I would say -- before that ball was marked on Ohio State’s fourth down half yard run, your defense blew a chance to tackle Curtis Samuel for a loss that would have pushed Ohio State back outside of the thirty yard line to make it fourth and forever, not fourth and less than a yard. Also Jim, let me remind you that your quarterback fumbled it on the one yard line and threw two interceptions, one a pick-six. Did those things have anything to do with your team losing? Here’s a handkerchief ... stop crying over the milk that's been spilt. It's time for dessert. Pour yourself a new glass. West Virginia 38 - Baylor 20 - I don’t know any Mountaineer fans who thought that WVU would end up 10-2 this year. This win would complete the improbable. Baylor’s secondary was a sieve last Friday at Texas Tech. It figures to be

bombs away from Skyler again this week in Morgratown. This season, WVU is 02 against teams from the state of Oklahoma but undefeated against the rest of the states. It has been a great ride ... the bowl reps should be impressed. Oklahoma 38 - Oklahoma State 23 It’s time for Bedlam - the 111th meeting between these rivals. OU has dominated the series (85-18-7) and should control this one. Mayfield and Perine are the stars, but they are surrounded by a lot of other great players. The Pokes upset the Sooners on their last visit to Norman. It won’t happen again.

Alabama 27 - Florida 7 - The cream rises to the top. This is the 25th year for the SEC Championship game and these two teams have combined for more than half the titles. Florida has won 7 and Alabama 6. After this year it will be 7-UP. You like it. It likes you. ACC Championship

How do you feel about being a salesman? Don’t you know everybody is a salesman? Everybody is trying to sell something. Maybe you’re a seven year old trying to convince your mother you need an ice cream cone or maybe you’re a 70 year old trying to convince people you should be elected president. Whatever you do you’ve got ideas to sell. But ideas to be effective must be communicated. So whether you are running for office, selling insurance, cars, or ice cream, Here’s an idea for you --> try saying it with ink.

HASTA LA VISTA BABY Do you know the story about the guy on the side of the road who held up a sign that said, "The End Is Near!" Seems nobody paid attention to him until he changed the sign to read, "Bridge Out!" Some people just aren't very direct. I'll try to be clear. This is our last issue of the season! WIMPY'S GUT Don't call me next SENSE week to ask where Wally's & Wimpy's is. This is it. Pay attention to these signs of things to come. West Virginia 46- Baylor 32 - WVU bounced back quite nicely at Iowa State last week and that momentum will carry over this week in Morgantown. Baylor has problems on defense and that will be exploited by the Mountaineer offense. Baylor can score but in recent weeks, it has been too little, too late. Saturday in Morgantown will be a microcosm of Baylor's last four games.

W I M P Y ' S

Oklahoma 46 - Oklahoma State 40 The Sooners are on a roll. They are healthy and their quarterback is playing well. Oklahoma State also has a good quarterback and they are playing well. Both teams had last week off to prepare. This one comes down to who can run the ball the best and eliminate turnovers. I think that will be the Sooners who are also the home team. This is the "de facto" Big XII Championship game for 2016. ACC Championship

Clemson 40 - Virginia Tech 27 Clemson has more talent, more depth, more speed, championship game experience, and they have Deshaun Watson. Virginia Tech plays a basic defense, and they are bit vanilla on offense as well. The Hokies did not play any of the top teams of the Atlantic division of the ACC this year. So starting with Clemson will not result in a good thing for the Hokies. Big Ten Championship

Penn State 28 - Wisconsin 27 - Does the winner go to the playoffs? If not why are they playing this game? Oh, yeah ... there is something called the Rose Bowl. These two teams play the same style of football. They both play good defense. They both run the ball on offense as they try to wear their opponents down. They don't do much except wait for their opponents to make the big mistake. These coaches are just a couple of poker

players who check, check, check and hope they get a good card at the end. This has been a Cinderella season for Penn State and it will continue one more week.

has had a good year, but the Bobcats are no match for Western Michigan. Look for the Broncos to continue their march to a January bowl ... probably the Cotton.

C-USA Championship

SEC Championship

La. Tech 58 - Western Kentucky 55 A rematch of an October game, a 55-52 La. Tech win at home. No defense in this one. This game is so close that the only sure thing is the over. Both teams scored over 500 points this year. This game will be at Western Kentucky, but I look for about the same result as in October.

Alabama 38 - Florida 16 - Florida has a great defense. The Gators gave up an average of only 15 points per conference game this year. Offense is the Gators Achilles heel. The Gators won the SEC East with their defense, but against Alabama you must bring a complete game. Florida's offense will be shut down by the Tide's defense which has not given up a touchdown since October 22. I have heard so much about the "I" test that in this one, "I" believe Alabama dominates Florida.

Pac 12 Championship

Washington 34 - Colorado 24 - After the loss to Southern Cal, Washington has refocused and is playing very good football. On offense the Huskies can throw and run the ball with equal effectiveness. On defense they are an opportunistic +7 on turnovers. They have NFL talent in the secondary. Colorado is also having a Cinderella type season but Friday night the slipper comes off for the Buffaloes. One more thing, I also expect the Huskies to outperfrom Colorado on special teams. MAC Championship

Western Michigan 43 - Ohio 20 - The MAC champion will be crowned Friday night in Detroit. Western Michigan comes in undefeated with better talent. Moreover, playing this game in Detroit gives the Broncos quite an advantage. OU

A Civil War - December 10

Navy 27 - Army 18 - The 117th meeting between these two comes to us from Baltimore. Navy has won the last fourteen times they have met. I believe I am seeing a trend here. Both run a wishbone style offense, but Navy does it much better. Army has nothing in its favor except, sooner or later, the streak will stop. But not this year. Before the fourteen Navy winning streak started, Army led this series in wins, but Navy has turned the ship into the wind and is holding the course. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to You and Yours From Edy and Me!

FAVORABLE STATS AND A POTENTIAL BIG 12 SURPRISE It seems hard to imagine. The football season has really zipped by this quickly? Is this really the last edition of Wally’s & Wimpy’s until next season? So you guys know, I’ve always enjoyed working with Tim Northrup and the gang. Good folks. Professional folks. But to the column. by Mitch Vingle Some parting thoughts to send you into the bowls and Christmas season: • First, understand my day-to-day duties with the Charleston Gazette-Mail not only encompass writing, but voting. In addition to the Associated Press Top 25 football poll, I’m the state’s representative on the basketball poll. Recently, though, my attention shifted to other votes: the Heisman Trophy and As-

sociated Press All-Big 12 teams. Understand, please, that I don’t subscribe to ESPN in order for them to decide my ballot. I sit down with an open mind when the dust has settled and examine all the available data. I’ll do that again this year. As of this writing, though, Louisville’s Lamar Jackson (ESPN’s darling) probably was the leader as we headed toward the proverbial clubhouse. Yet I also saw options for those that didn’t like Jackson’s look in the face-plant against Houston. When I was writing, for instance, the nation’s FBS all-purpose yardage leader was Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey? Remember him? And the guys behind McCaffrey in all-purpose yardage were Oklahoma’s Joe Mixon and Texas’ D’Onta Foreman – two other attractive candidates. I especially like Foreman, by the way. He was leading the nation in rushing, averaging 186.3 yards. The favorable stats for Jackson were he was No. 1 nationally in points responsible for and No. 2 in total offense. In the latter stat, he was behind Texas Tech’s Patrick Mahomes. (That’s why I say there’s wiggle room here.) Also, do you know the Big 12 had not one, but two quarterbacks with better pass efficiency ratings than Jackson? Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield was No. 1 nationally, while Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph was is No. 10. Mayfield is certainly a viable Heisman

candidate as is his favorite target, Dede Westbrook. OK, so let’s move on to the Big 12 voting – where more than a few things jumped out at me. First, WVU fans might not have felt it after the Oklahoma loss, but Mountaineer coach Dana Holgorsen has a shot in league coach of the year voting. Think about it. Oklahoma was picked to finish first. Oklahoma State was picked to finish third. Meanwhile, West Virginia was picked to finish seventh. Want potentially the biggest Big 12 surprise? The Defensive Player of the Year Award could go to a Kansas player. He at least should be given serious consideration. Sophomore Dorance Armstrong Jr., a Jayhawk defensive end, had 10 sacks and 17 tackles for loss when I wrote this. But back to WVU. I’m sure I’ll vote for cornerback Rasul Douglas, who has seven interceptions, to the first team. But could I also vote for running back Justin Crawford on the second team offense? He was right there stat-wise. • While on football, a recruiting update. According to 247 Sports, WVU’s 2017 effort was No. 48 through a list that included 16 commitments. That ranked fifth in the Big 12. Oddly, no Mountaineer commitment was rated over three stars, including highly sought South Charleston recruit Derrek Pitts. Marshall’s effort so far, through five commitments, was No. 130.

According to Scout, WVU was No. 62 and seventh in the Big 12. MU was tied at No. 117, 10th in Conference USA. So the teams have some work to do. • And finally… It was early, but through the cupcake part of WVU’s basketball season, there were some impressive aspects of the Mountaineer team. WVU, for instance, defeated a New Hampshire team by 59 points that the week prior defeated Temple in Philly. Also, hey, was that a shooting touch I saw from the Mountaineers? Before the team’s trip to New York, it was converting 50.5 percent of its shots and 40 percent of its 3-point shots. I’m sure that’s all changed, by the time you read this, but if you ever wondered what “Press Virginia” could look like with shooters, well, we might find out. “I feel like we are a better shooting team this year than last,” said Mountaineer forward Esa Ahmad. “Everybody put in a lot of work in the offseason, over the summer… It’s really paid off.” “They put a lot of time in and I think we have better shooters than what we’ve had before,” said WVU coach Bob Huggins. “This group probably shoots it the best since any team since 2010. We have a lot of guys who can make shots.” I guess we’ll see. God bless everyone. Enjoy the bowl season. And have a very Merry Christmas. Follow Mitch Vingle at twitter.com/MitchVingle.

The Mountaineer Way Regeneration Modalities: Ice Tub-Boots-Massage

Continuing on “Recovery,” sleep has been the topic of discussion and we have briefly introduced the importance of nutrition when combining with training. This article will dig into tools used to help speed up the recovery process. The idea of using recovery tools is simply to help “get Alex Mitchell your body back,” in Assistant Strength order to be ready for Coach the next training session or competition. The idea of getting the body runs in conjunction with the idea of getting the body as close to fully recovered as possible, which will help performance and help prevent injury. This article will give a brief explanation on recovery techniques used pre/post practice or competition here at West Virginia University. WVU

Strength and Conditioning coaches put a heavy emphasis on heavy lifting and running at high velocities, which places a lot of stress on the body. Therefore, we understand that we must put heavy emphasis on recovery, sleep and nutrition as well. Strength coaches try to provide numerous options for athletes to use for recovery. One of the options that we use at WVU is a method familiar to most coaches are the country “Ice Tubs.” Ice tubs after practice or competition are used to decrease inflammation within the muscle area, and cool the body off as well as bring the heart rate down as fast as possible in order to start the recovery process. The uses of ice tubs is an old school method that probably works the best when done correctly. Making sure that the water is cold is critical when using cold tubs. Rule of thumb should be temperatures between 35 and 50 degrees. The lower the temperature means the lower amount of time that

FAIRMONT ENDS BRIDGEPORT’S RUN

Over the course of the last four seasons, Bridgeport has been the high school football dynasty in West Virginia. The Indians are the 3-time defending AA state champions and entered the semifinals with a 13-0 record and a 37game unbeaten streak. Their semifinal opponent, Fairmont Senior, was a familiar one, as the two squads were meeting for the seventh time in four seasons. The Polar Bears gave Bridgeport a tough test in the regular season before falling 1714, so the game was expected to be a tight one. The defenses ruled the game, and a touchdown run by Fairmont Senior QB Jake Abbott with less than a minute to play in the first half provided the first points of the game by either team. The Polar Bears held on to that margin until Bridgeport’s Chapin Murphy found the end zone with four minutes to play to tie the game and ultimately force overtime. Both teams scored touchdowns in the first overtime period, and Bridgeport scored a touchdown on the first possession of the second overtime to take a 2114 lead. The Polar Bears found themselves in a tight spot on their possession,

facing a 2 nd -and- 31 from the 41 yard line, but Abbott went deep on that second-down play to Bryson Gilbert, who found the end zone. Fairmont Senior decided to attempt a 2-point conversion for the win. Abbott kept the ball on the conversion attempt, met a tackler, and reached the ball out just across the goal line for the score and the dramatic 22-21 win. The Polar Bears will face Mingo Central in the AA state championship game. The Miners jumped out to an early 13-0 lead over James Monroe, but the Mavericks would fight back and stay in the game. Central held on to a slim 28-21 margin midway through the third quarter before scoring two more touchdowns to put the game away. One of the AAA semifinals provided quite a bit of drama as well. Capital and Spring Valley battled throughout the first three quarters and entered the final period tied at 14. The Cougars mounted a drive and looked poised to take the lead with five minutes remaining in the game, but Spring Valley came up with a goal line stand to keep the score tied. The Timberwolves took over inside their own one yard line and started to march down the field. Quarterback Derek Johnson broke a big run to midfield, and a few plays later, he scrambled across the field before breaking loose and finding the end zone from 49 yards out with less than a minute to play to give the Tim-

berwolves the 20-14 victory. Spring Valley will take on top-seeded Martinsburg in the title game. The Bulldogs rolled over Morgantown 51-0 and have yet to give up a point in the playoffs while amassing 154 points of their own. East Hardy, last year’s runner-up, will be back in the Class A championship game. The Cougars fought off a tough test from Pendleton County before pulling away late for a 48-20 victory. Topranked East Hardy will square off with St. Marys in the only battle of unbeaten teams in this year’s Super Six. The Blue Devils scored three touchdowns in the first quarter and cruised to a 47-0 victory over Fayetteville. The Super Six state championships will again be contested at Wheeling Island Stadium this weekend.

NOTES AND REMARKS FROM THE SIDELINE

SUPER SIX TIME HAS ARRIVED IN WV

in the second OT session with the Indians –

a proud program that had won the last three state titles – propelled the blue and white

The football seasons zoom by at a rapid pace. The 2016 campaign was no different. With all of those regular season games for a period of 11 weeks followed by three straight weekends of playoff action, we have now reached the Super Six. Wheeling Island Stadium is again the place to be this Friday and Saturday to watch the final three games of high school football unfold in the great state of West Virginia. Had it not been for Fairmont Senior’s Mark Martin thrilling double-overSports Director for time win over BridgeWCHS-TV and port in a Class AA semifinal, all three title WVAH-TV games would have been of the No. 1 vs. No. 2 variety (Fairmont Senior was the No. 5 seed of AA). Nonetheless, it would appear three great games are set for the first weekend of December. It all begins Friday night with the Class AA contest between No. 2 Mingo Central and that Fairmont Senior team. On Saturday at noon, No. 1 Martinsburg meets No. 2 Spring Valley for the Class AAA title. The last game of the 2016 season will be played Saturday night in Class A as No. 1 East Hardy goes up against No. 2 St. Marys. OUT OF HIBERNATION This will be Fairmont Senior’s first trip to a title game since playing for the AAA championship in 1981. J.L. Abbott’s gutsy call of going for two

from the Friendly City into the championship of Class AA. Fairmont Senior topped Bridgeport, 22-21. Abbott came from Michigan back in the ‘80s to play for Wally Hood at Fairmont State. After Hood left the Falcon program, Abbott played his last three years for Doug Sams. He met his wife there and has never left. His son, Jake, will quarterback the Polar Bears Friday night. Abbott says two men he will be thinking about a lot this week (as he does each day) are the late Bob DeLorenzo and Skip Delligatti, former Fairmont coaches. “They meant a lot to me,” Abbott said. YOGI’S LAST HURRAH Friday night Yogi Kinder will be involved in his final high school football game as a head coach when he leads his Mingo Central Miners onto the turf of Wheeling Island. Kinder said Sunday during the Super Six meeting at the West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission office in Parkersburg that it is the dream of every coach to be in a championship during that final game of one’s career. In fact, Kinder got a little choked up thinking about doing so. Kinder has been Mingo Central’s head coach for all six years of the school’s existence. Mingo Central was formed from the consolidation of Burch, Gilbert, Matewan and Williamson. Prior to guiding the Miners, Kinder was the head coach at Matewan – his alma mater. He led the Tigers to a state championship there in 1994 at Charleston’s Laidley Field. “All of those schools that formed Mingo Central had great tradition in sports,” he said. He’s happy to lead the school to its first-ever

championship game experience in football. He plans to make sure his players enjoy the week. Kinder intends to soak it all up himself. For he truly knows how special this is for him, his coaches, players and communities there in Mingo County.

coming the school’s head coach. “I learned so much from those two guys,” he said. SVHS was formed through the consolidation of championship football programs Ceredo-Kenova, Buffalo and Vinson. Spring Valley’s lone blemish this season came against MSAC member Huntington, 17-14.

ORANGE AND BLACK ARE BACK It’s been a great football season for Martinsburg’s Dave Walker and now he hopes to cap it off with another championship. In addition to his undefeated Bulldog team that heads to Wheeling with a 13-0 mark, Walker was inducted into the Glenville State College Athletic Hall of Fame earlier this season. Walker, who has guided MHS to four state championships in a row (2010-13), is in his 20th season at the helm of the Bulldog program (one in which he led to championship games on four other occasions). He’s glad to get the orange and black back in Wheeling following a two-year absence. Walker said what makes this year’s appearance more special is the fact East Hardy is in the Class A championship game (for a second straight year). Straight out of college, Walker was hired as the head coach at EHHS and spent nine years there before moving on to Martinsburg.

COUGARS BACK FOR SECONDS For a second straight year, Chad Williams has East Hardy in the title game of Class A. “What we learned from last year was we can’t get all caught up in the excitement and must realize there is a football game to be played,” he said. “Last year, I think maybe we were happy to be there.” It was a rough outing – a 62-0 loss to Magnolia. “When we walked off the field last year, we immediately started thinking about what it would take to get back,” he said. At 13-0, they are one win away from erasing last season’s struggles in Wheeling.

SPRING-ING TO WHEELING Brad Dingess knows his Spring Valley Timberwolves have been through the mill to get to Wheeling for the first time in school history. The third head coach for the school, Dingess’ team won the Mountain State Athletic Conference title and then defeated fellow league member Capital for a second time (210 in the regular season) last Saturday afternoon to reach the Island with a 20-14 victory. “That was just a great high school football game and we beat a great team and a great program,” Dingess said. (Capital had played for the last two Class AAA titles). Dingess spent time on the staffs of Don Money and the late Phil Ratliff before be-

ST. MARYS BACK AGAIN For the second time in three years, Jodi Mote gets to be the leader of his alma mater at Wheeling Island. His Blue Devils lost an epic three-overtime game to Williamstown in 2015. That year was the final for old St. Marys High and Imley Field as the area got ready to open a new facility. Bill Hanlin Stadium is home to Blue Devil football these days. The beautiful twoyear old venue is named in honor of the coaching legend at both the high school and collegiate levels. Hanlin, who also was the head of the SSAC during his career, is one of Mote’s assistants. “It is hard to describe what he means to me and our program and community. Next to my father (Gail, a former SM head coach), you could say he’s been like my second father. I just bounce so many things off of him. It’s so special to have him with us. I’m blessed in so many ways to be in this position.”

Falcons wideout Julio Jones is having yet another career season, looking to add another receiving title to his name. Jones has led the Falcons to the top spot in the NFC South.

Rookie Ezekiel Elliot has broken through this season to lead the league in rushing yardage. The former Buckeye has led the Cowboys to a lengthy winstreak and is alive in the MVP race. Veteran QB Drew Brees is on pace to repeat as the fantasy leader for the 2016 season. The Saints signal-caller has amassed a huge amount of yards, as he leads his team towards the playoffs. Rk Team

THIS WEEK IN THE ANNALS OF FOOTBALL Dec. 2, 1950 - Navy was 7-34-2 since 1946 and was the supreme underdog against College Football Hall of Fame coach Earl “Red” Blaik and No. 2 Army, who was 39-2-4 in that same span and riding a 28-game unbeaten streak. In front of a crowd of 101,000, including President Harry Truman, an 813-foot good-luck telegram signed by 824 Midshipmen was delivered to Philadelphia’s Municipal Stadium. Navy ran with the luck as quarterback Bob Zastrow gave the Midshipmen a 7-0 lead on a seven-yard scoring run. Zastrow also tossed a 30-yard touchdown strike to Jim Baldinger to go ahead 14-0. Navy’s defense allowed the Cadets inside their red zone seven times in the second half, but didn’t allow a score. A late safety put Army on the board, but it was

Dec. 5, 1953 - Notre Dame dominated SMU in College Football Hall of Fame coach Frank Leahy’s South Bend farewell. Mimicking his College Football Hall of Fame quarterback Ralph Guglielmi, fellow Hall of Famer and Heisman Trophy recipient Johnny Lattner flipped just his second pass of the season for a 55-yard gain to set up the first of four touchdowns for fullback Neil Worden. Early in the second quarter, the Mustangs’ defense held at their goal line, but quarterback Duane Nutt fumbled the ball in the end zone, allowing defensive tackle Frank Varrichione to fall on it for a touchdown. Lattner scored twice for a 20-0 halftime lead and a 37-0 edge early in the third quarter. SMU backup quarterback Sam Stollenwerck threw a late fourth-quarter touchdown to then-obscure Raymond Berry to marginally trim Notre Dame’s lead. The Mustangs finished with a 5-5 record, while the Fighting Irish wrapped up a 9-0-1 season as the No. 2 team in the country. Source: The National Football Foundation

Time F or the Two For Min ute War ning Minute arning When it comes to the National Football League, some things never change. We go into each season wondering if any other team can stop the New England Patriots. Or if any other team can actually lose a game to the downtrodden Cleveland Browns. Yet, despite those seemingly annual givens, the NFL always witnesses a number of surprises none of us saw coming. Who would have thought, when the season began, that the Dallas Cowboys not only would dominate the NFC, but also would do so without veteran quarterback Tony Romo running the show? Even Romo has conceded this is Dak Prescott’s football team, at least for now. Prescott is one of many young quarterbacks making a major impact on the league. Marcus Mariota has brought credibility to the Tennessee Titans. Ditto for Tyrod Taylor, who has brought life back to Buffalo. It’s the circle of NFL life. For every legendary superstar like Peyton Manning who retires, there is a new quarterback that captures our attention. For our area's football fans, it hasn’t been a banner year. The Cleveland Browns once again are living up to their reputation as the Clowns. It has been a great sports year in Cleveland with the Cavaliers winning the National Basketball Association championship and the Indians participating in the Wold Series. But the Browns continue to flounder, week in and week out. It’s getting old. The Cincinnati Bengals, who entered the season looking like a contender, have struggled for consistency. All of a sudden the Dalton Gang can’t shoot straight.

And fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers are wondering what is going on in the Steel City where the Steelers are having internal problems that have carried onto the field. Coach Mike Tomlin and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger are feuding and it’s never a good thing when the coach and the QB are having issues. One wonders if the Rooneys will step in an bring peace to Pittsburgh. Finally, we have a wide open race for both Super Bowl berths. Yes, we have favorites but we also have doubts and that creates excitement. We all know the NFL rules the national sports scene. Neither baseball nor basketball has a chance when it comes to interest. And while college football is a major attraction, its audience and interest on Saturdays pales in comparison to the NFL. So who is going to play in the sports year’s biggest sports event, the Super Bowl? Is New England headed back to the greatest spectacle in sports? Or can a Buffalo shock the world? Is this finally the year we all say “ How ‘bout them Cowboys?’’ or does Dallas disappoint its large legion of fans once again? Everyone loves a mystery and there is no bigger annual mystery than trying to pick the one team that will become immortal in National Football League history by winning the Super Bowl. Wally says go with Terrific Tom. I like Dak. Tom Brady was the youngest quarterback to win a Super Bowl when he won his first in 2002 at the age of 24 and 184 days. Dak will be 23 years and 191 days old on February 5, 2017. Tell me that wouldn't be a super story. Happy New Year!

Finish Your Fantasy Season Strong With These Picks This has been a very interesting fantasy season. Some real surprises have developed on the fantasy landscape this year. Below are a few of those surprises and what I think we can see from them in the last few weeks. QB: A real nice surprise and consistent signal caller this year has been Derek Carr of Oakland. Carr has been very consistent throughout the year and has a favorable fantasy schedule the rest of the season. Make sure Derek Carr is a QB1 for you and in your lineup every week from here on out. RB: This hasn’t been a real surprise but Ezekiel Elliott has been one of the most productive running backs this fantasy season. Not often does a rookie running back step right in with a rookie quarterback and have

the kind of season that the Cowboys have had. I don’t see this trend ending anytime soon. Keep “Zeke” in your lineup and ride him through the playoffs. WR: No shock here but Antonio Brown has been at the top of his fantasy game again this season. When Big Ben is healthy no one prospers more than Antonio Brown. Look for his targets and redzone production to continue throughout the end of the season. The Steelers have a favorable schedule and will be making that postseason push. Good luck to all in your fantasy playoffs & Merry Christmas!
