Fantasy Football Entry Page: Week 6/Free October Contest!

Remember, the Confidential’s Fantasy Football game is structured to allow late entries.  THERE IS STILL TIME TO ENTER AND WIN THE OVERALL CONTEST!  But we are also running a separate free contest for October alone.  See below.

OCTOBER CONTEST:

The entrant with the highest score during one of the four October weekends will receive $25.00 via PayPal.  We have seen some 150 point weeks already, so it may take that much to win the prize.  But remember to enter each week to increase your chances.

OVERALL CONTEST:

We don’t go by total points for the whole season; rather, we just allow teams to win the week or not.  Whoever wins the most weeks, wins the overall prize.  Right now, Lenville has 2 wins, while Brian, ACaffrey and MCaffrey have 1 win.  Plenty of time for someone else to enter and win the $75.00 prize.  For Week 5 results, see here.

 

For rules, see here.  As a reminder, to enter, simply comment below with an ACC QB, RB, WR, Flex, Defense, and Coach.  We’ll do the rest.

 

Get the entries in for this week by 7:00 pm EST Friday, October 3, 2014.  GO ACC!

Syracuse-Notre Dame Recap: Beware Fool’s Gold

The Confidential was tweeting aplenty during the Syracuse-Notre Dame game.  Indeed, the Confidential got into a twitter-battle (which always makes me think of Dr. Seuss’s “Muddle Puddle Tweetle Poodle Beetle Noodle Bottle Paddle Battle”) over the Syracuse defensive performance.  The upshot is that the Confidential has some legitimate concerns that this Syracuse coaching staff will be seeing Fool’s Gold with the 5 turnovers, just like there was Fool’s Gold with the nearly 1,000 yards of offense the past two weeks.

GAME THREAD: SEPTEMBER 27, 2014

The big game of the day is Syracuse vs. Notre Dame tonight, but Florida State traveling to NC State has huge implications.  And Duke-Miami will go a long way to determine the Coastal picture, as Miami could be in big trouble with a loss at home. Long story short, a lot going on.

NC State vs FSU: Let the Season Begin!

Believe it or not, the game between the Wolfpack and the Seminoles on Saturday afternoon is the second ACC showdown game of this season.  The first was FSU/Clemson, but to hear most folks talk, this week’s game will be an FSU romp.

Looking for some Wolfpack love, I went to Backing The Pack over at SB Nation. And there I found this from Akula Wolf.

Like most, the esteemed Mr. Wolf feels that the Pack has played no one (sound familiar?) and will be utterly destroyed on Saturday.  I beg to differ.
