Congratulations to NCBB champion Garcangel! I have been watching Garc for a long time and learning from him and I would like to share with all of you the Golden Rules of Garc the Wise. If you fallow these rules maybe just maybe one day you too can win a NCBB national championship!
1. Garc don't Voice. While the rest of us are messing around in voice chat Garc the Wise is focused on the game studying his opponents and learning their weaknesses.
2. Garc don't mark. While you are wasting time marking his players skills garc is commiting all your players skills to memory fully focused on the game ahead. Marking makes you complacent and lazy don't do it ever.
3. Garc don't worry about the next game. While you're busy worrying about if your best player is going to play in the next game the game after or next season garc is using his player to win this game. Planing your players NBFL draft position is just a good way to lose the game you're playing.
4. Garc don't block foul or bash. While you are worried about trying to step on his players head garc is dodging away positioning his players to strike and laughing as you get your players thrown out of the game.
5. Garc don't tilt. You've used your 4 fouls and taken 5 of garcs players out with tackle frenzy mighty blow. But 6 elves is 4 more than garc needs to win. He stays cool as his players drop like flies and you get more and more fustrated as he continues to run the score up with his invincible elves that can't seem to roll a 1.

Well these are but 5 of the golden rules of Garc I would share more but every good coach needs his secrets so I will leave some of the mystery and magic for you to discover for yourself! Grats again Garc!

We simply are going to have to get better at getting rid of those GODS and we can deal with the mortal elves.

Coach Robocoyote stands upon the turf of the practice facility at Fresno State.
He remembers the once great legacy of the Red-Wave and the trophies won and lost.
Around him are stacked the bodies of players killed and maimed on the pitch.

Failures..... all Failures.. he thinks to himself... fired again from an attempt at coaching a team
with flashy dodges and big plays. All the sudden he hears a shamble in the distance and a gurgle and groan.
Robocoyote rounds the corner to find a lone necromancy student standing by himself necromancer staff in hand.
Robocoyote watches as the student attempts to summon a creature from beyond the grave only for the flesh to crumble
and return to the soil.

Robocoyote sighs to himself all hope seems lost. With only weeks before the season where would he be able to assemble
a team of players to even attempt a return to greatness. Suddenly a loud thunder strike is heard. Robocoyote shields his eyes
as a lightning bolt strikes the ground right where the student had been standing. The student screams out as power pulses through
his staff. The ground around him begins to rise as hands reach from below the school grounds. The student begins screaming for help
as the hands of those long lost to time grab at him from the ground.

Moments later the ground is still. No more screams..... No more movement..... No more struggle...... The student obviously unaware of the
danger he had been in was no more. Just a blackened and charred staff, still pulsing with power, lay by itself on the pitch. Robocoyote
smiled to himself. He may not have time to train a new team before the next NCBB season, but he had enough time to raise a team from seasons past.
There would be no flashy plays this season. No long bombs to open wide receivers. Just the shamble of zombies
and the crunch of their boots against the enemies skulls. Fresno State would rise again, but this time not with the blessing of the Chaos
gods, but with the unholy power of the staff Robocoyote now picked up from the ground.

A quick test of the staff and suddenly the ground begins to shake. Zombies and skeletons rise from the ground. Robocoyote is quick to act
and uses the staff to order them to stay where they were. The undead stand at the ready. Cold dead eyes... staring with unthinking,
uncaring, resolve. The undead wait for their next command as Robocoyote smiles. Fresno State will return to greatness he thinks to himself.

Sneezing A: Hello everyone and welcome to the NCBB big beast kickoff show. And a special welcome to my frienimy the man who knows too little Max Spleenripper. Howya doing today max!?

Max: I'm doing great today Sneezing A. not even your backhanded complement can bring me down! It is NCBB season and the big beast is looking beastly again. As you know there is a trophy in the case thanks to coach Garc's dice both on the pitch and in the locker room when rolling up player improvements. This team is as dirty as a wood elf team is willing to get, and everybody's sweetheart Jason Armstrong the player with 5 count em 12345 stat up improvements is only a junior. Needless to say everyone will be going elf hunting this season. But if they don't crumble under the mighty blow of the rest of the league they will likely be in the playoffs again.
Sneezing A: yeah yeah yeah. I was going to contradict you but it is really hard to on this point. Anyway let's talk about another great team maaaayyyybbbeee not as good as Fayetteville but certainly noteworthy let's talk about Cal. I really like this team. They are built to win in their own conference. They loaded up on tackle went light on guard. They have two rookie saurus which is fine they will come up as the others graduate and a rediculus skink born to one day die in Arizona. I also really like this coach isn't afraid to take the chameleon skinks. They are great little defenders.

Max: meh. They are okay I guess. I'm not impressed. Chameleon skinks are terrible and nothing but bloat. This team has a great skink but everything else makes me want to fall asleep. Nothing to see here. Probably make a bowl game though. Tell you my sleeper pick. Alabama. Look they had a tough season last season didn't get a single win. But you all forget in their non aq season they made a bowl and Beat Hawaii. This team can win some games and they have a pair of AG5 players to do it with. Look for them to have a better season than last and look for them to be in the bowl hunt.

Sneezing A: I'm not even going to dignify that with a response. I'm going to just change the subject. Let's talk about a good team. Let's talk about the poli puercos. This team has a little bit of everything and a ton of guard block and mighty blow. You can't dodge away from them and they will kill you. Hey at least the ground dosent have mighty blow. This was the only team to beat the national champions last season and they will be doing some hitting maiming and bowl making this season too.

Max:I'm never going to say dwarfs are good and I'm never going to root for a team named after pigs. Let's talk instead about a developing team in the bronkhorns. This team needs more guard. Bottom line. Untill they are loaded up all that frenzy might as well be a negga trait. Khorne are a tough team to get going in NCBB but not impossible.

Sneezing A: for once we agree Max. This team dose need more guard. But the have some squishy opponents this season so if they can find a way to make that frenzy work maybe they can stack up enough cash to win a game or two. Speaking of chaos teams that are hard to get going. UTEP is actually looking decent this season. Last season they had a tough one but now most of their players have the block they need to be effective. They have a few "interesting" players. But they do have a brutal killer purgistor who will no doubt be the anchor of the team. All they need is a runner and this team is good to start winning games.

Max: Berea is in a building year. They graduated most of their top talent in the off-season. However they have some good building blocks. To work with a nice ST linewoman, a good catcher and a good blitzer. This team is well coached and will win a couple games for sure look for them to try and protect their developing players and just miss a bowl game as they build to make a good run next season.

Sneezing A:well that's all the important teams. Last and least we have app st. They have a fast blitzer and a tweener blitzer who isn't a killer and isn't a supporter. We don't expect much more than we have gotten out of app st. However, the thing everyone is looking forward to is weather or not any of app st. Players graduate at the end of the season.

Well that's all we have for you today. Other than to just say. Nelphine, Charlie, we hate you for abandoning us. Chuck you can come back nelph... Well don't make me send garc after you!

It’s that time of year again. The daylight is dwindling, the leaves are changing color, and the last of the harvest has begun. At this time of year we often turn inwards to take stock in our lives, reviewing the choices we have made, and musing over other possibilities, of lives that are as tangible as the wispy clouds in the azure skies above…

BUT IT’S ALSO TIME FOR MOAR BLOOD BOWL!!!

Yes folks, the NCBB is back for Season 36, which promises to be action packed, watching the bodies get stacked, other coaches will be attacked, if they lack tact, anyone who messes with the FBC is gonna get smacked! A new season always means some shakeups and changes, and we will get you up to speed on all of those affecting your favorite conference, as well as a sneak peek into what you might expect from your favorite team. This is so exciting, I have to go use the bathroom. Back in a moment to begin the show.


FlaSt Delfinoles
Image

Man, oh, man, look at that senior class! FlaSt comes into the season at a monsterific 2140k TV, sporting 14 players. The power of this team is built around its Blitzers, a deadly Witch Elf, and a master ball retrieving linemen. Of those mentioned, all but one is starting their senior year. So it’s likely time for this team to go out with a BANG!, and coach Tzalaran has the ability to do just that. They will take the ball from you and get it anywhere that want it, en route to scoring a touchdown. The Delfinoles only have two weaknesses: the lack of skills on their linemen(but they are often served up for fodder anyway) and the lack of any players with Guard. Both of these factors could come into play if FlaSt finds itself in a tightly packed scrum over the ball; something they are likely to avoid. Expect a high showing from this team this season. Let’s look at their Out of Conference schedule.

UTEP Party Minors – If being ugly scored points, UTEP would have it made. But unfortunately it’s offense which scores points, and the Delfinoles have that all over this Nurgle team.

Ohio Wesleyan Battling Benders – One would think this has the makings of a high scoring, elfball contest, but the Benders are looking to bring the ruckus. Look for a war on the pitch as the body count outnumbers the score.

TBD – I hear they have a wicked running game.


Charlotte's Forty Normers
Image

New to the FBC this season, Charlotte is still a young team, this being their third season in the NCBB, but they have done well both seasons, and are blossoming into a fearsome team. Some would call this a defensively orientated team, having a dwarven level of Guard, but the team can mount a quick offense, as they field three Catchers: a ball retriever, a OTTD scoring threat, and a sweeper. All of their linemen have utility skills, and there are even not one, but two Dirty Players on the team. With this as the starting point, the Forty Normers have a chance to grow even larger and more skilled as they chase after a Nation Championship, and they have this and next season to go before their first graduating class. If I were you, I wouldn’t want to face this team. Let’s see who their first three victims are.

Oregon Waterfoul – Oregon may still have the ability to get a point up on the board, but they lack the tools to stop Charlotte from grinding them down, and walking in multiple touchdowns.

California Golden Lizards – In a match that will be a slugfest, look for all that Guard to come into play, leaving Cal at a disadvantage. Charlotte will have to remember to priorities scoring over Skink hunting.

Florida Rotting Gators – Another match where Guard-spam will be an advantage for the Normers, look for Charlotte to exploit Florida’s offense, or lack thereof.


U Pike Pain Bearers
Image

After a season of getting beaten on, U Pike is back to show the NCBB what they can really do. Getting the ball away from this team will be difficult, as their dual Runner attack will keep the ball moving and changing hands, and likely putting their opponents in a position to be surfed from the pitch by their Witch Elf. They will have be somewhat conservative, as they do not have a deep bench, and their linemen lack any skills to assist in a prolonged battle for the ball. Expect U Pike’s opponents to sport a few stab-inflicted casualties this season. Who are the first three contestants?

Alabama Aesthetical Alligators – The Pain Bearers will need to use their speed to their advantage, assisted by the three –MA injuries Alabama is carrying, in this match up. Look for the Assassin to get to the heart of Alabama’s lack of armor.

CSU Northridge Matadors – U Pike will likely embarrass the Matadors to the point that the Renegade Dark Elf Linemen will defect to the Pain Bearers mid match; too much speed and ball handling for CSU to compete with.

Washington Huskarls – Redemption is being served as U Pike looks to right one of the wrongs from the previous season. If elven armor holds out, so can U Pike.


Duke Blue-Green Devils

Image


Fresh from their runner-up finish in the National Championship, it’s Duke! Looking leaner than the Duke of previous seasons, but this same team showed that even in a rebuilding season, Duke is National Championship material. Duke’s defense sacrifices some mobility for hitting power, and their offense is now looking to create a new ball carrier; their opponents will still have a difficult time forcing Duke to make any mistakes on the field. Never count this team out, not until the final whistle has blown, and the last foul was thrown. Duke’s OOC matches include:

TCU Horned Rats – Duke will bring the fight directly to TCU, likely ending a few player’s career aspirations in the process, in an attempt to eliminate TCU’s chances of scoring on their possession.

Berea Bleeding Angels – Look for speed to play a big part in this matchup, as the Skinks will attempt to run up the score will outrunning Berea’s defense, with Duke’s defense looking to score some causalities.

Hawaii Warrielves – Everyone knows Hawaii’s game plan, but that doesn’t make it any easier to counter. Duke will have to play this one cool, and stay away from Hawaii’s Blitzers.


Air Force Warpstone Falcons
Image

Never one for subtleties, Air Force has a single game plan, maiming the other team, and it worked to great affect last season. With the additional of a Gutter Runner to the roster mid-last season, Air Force has opened up an additional possibility: scoring touchdowns. Will this new dual threat of defense and offense be the secret ingredient which elevates the Warpstone Falcons to a new echelon of Blood Bowl? We double it, but you’re likely to see Murder Rat rip a few holes in other teams, or die a spectacularly amusing death on a failed dodge. Who ordered the Swiss Cheese?

SMU Mousestangs – Likely the first real test of the season for Air Force. Can Rats be overran by Rats-Lite? It’s the age old argument, “Tastes Great! Less Filling!” If the Falcons can contain the ball and stop the SMU breakaway, anything can happen.

BYU Cougars – The extra armor slows BYU down, and Murder Rat tears through it anyways. BYU will get some points on the board, but at a great cost.

Navy Midskeletonmen – A rivalry match we all love to see go down. A shame Navy is barely fielding a team this season. Air Force will show up and win this one, perhaps without even having to take the field.

Editor’s Note: At the time of publication of this article the rivalry match between Navy and Air Force has already been played, and though Air Force won, 2-1, Murder Rat suffered a serious injury (Killed/Apoth/SI) leaving him at AV7.


Grunts of ARMY
Image

They’re mean, they’re green, and they’re back again. It’s Army, who have just come off of a self-promotion world tour, where many promises were made about this season. Looking at the team itself, some of those promises could come true; plenty of Block, Mighty Blow, and Guard to assist in the carnage. What it will come down to is the orc game plan: will we see the slow, methodical, grinding orcs, or will this be the flashy, passing orcs? This will likely be a pivotal season for the team. First orders?

Kansas Red Leg Raiders – This one could be tricky, as Kansas is definitely showing up prepared for a fight. If Army can protect the ball, and keep swinging away, there’s little Kansas could do to stop them.

Bro-hio State Buckeyes – There is only one plan Army should take, the destruction of any and all Wardancers. Any other elves that fall will be accepted as collateral damage.

Poli Puerkos – A classic matchup, and a rivalry game at that. For this, Army may need to get fancy, as standing around attempting to beat dwarves into the ground did not work last time.


Miami BallHawks
Image

Everyone’s favorite slimy luckers are at it again, riding high on their first bowl victory, looking to disrupt the status quo. Not a massive team, 12 players at a respectable 1660TV, Miami does come equipped with skills sprinkled about, and a very dangerous Blitzer. Expect some inducement-fueled matches, and at least one or two nearly impossible plays to be pulled off, as this is a team that can take a beating the first half of the season and then come back to outscore their last two opponents 6-0. Never count the BallHawks out. Out of Conference matches include:

Indiana Horrors – Big, dumb, and ugly, and that just describing the coach. Indiana is coming looking for a fight, while Miami is looking to score touchdowns.

Gallaudet Deaf Bulls – Those Bulls may be fast, but leaping fouls are even faster. If the win isn’t in sight, the maiming will be.

Ottawa Bee-Bees – Twinkle, twinkle, Julian Starr, your career has gone too far, mounting rage you did incite, you’re about to die tonight…


Texas AM Les Agriculteurs
Image

A new team to the division, with an impressive bowl-winning depute in the Non-AQ conference, it’s Texas AM. What this team lacks in size is more than made up for by the skill of their players, speed, and their coach. Texas will leverage the lack of experience other teams have against Bretonnian teams to their advantage, meanwhile exploiting the openings they create in their opponent’s front line. A good showing is expected from this team, so let’s look at their first three opponents:

Paris University DeadJokers – A new rivalry match, born from their game as part of the Non-AQ. Look for Texas to add another game in the “Win” column with this one

Wastern Michigan BronKhornes – Without a ball carrier, Texas will outscore the BronKhornes, in a match that will put the “V” in “Violence.”

Mz State Bull Dawgz – The once might Mz State still may have some tricks up their sleeves, as this will be the real challenge for Texas. Can Texas neutralize Mz State’s running game? Will Mz State fall to Texas’ superior positioning? This has the potential to be a great matchup.

Greetings NCBB coaches and fans! In the absence of any recent broadcasts, and general fluffiness, I bring you another ranking system for the already overflowing pile!

Season 36 is one of the biggest seasons with 48 coaches in the BCS and 14 in the Non-AQ. The BCS Out Of Conference play has already seen many upsets, and a couple predictable wins, and the Non-AQ is... well... the Non-AQ. Oh and all of this might also be the last BB2016 season ever played.

After many nights of Excel spreadsheets and remembering middle school math I present the first round of results of the Winner Averaging Predictor. 1.0+ is a perfect prediction, 0.0 is probably not the team you want to bet your savings on.

The 48 teams are broken down into the Good, Potential, Not-as-Good, and the Zeros.


Let's start with the Zeros.

These teams have been all but abandoned by their coaches. Could be due to real life struggles, fear of playing better coaches at the start of their season, or focusing on playing in bigger, bloatier leagues. Either way they have no games played and when you divide by 0 in Excel it just doesn't work.



.48
Séraphins de Québec

WAP Score:#DIV/0!
Coach: Barem
Talent: Bascule

-10 Casualties Diff as chaos and a hobbled +ag beastman as star player is not doing Barem any favours as a newish team to BCS.


.47
Fighting Illinois 2020

WAP Score:#DIV/0!
Coach: Valen
Talent: Eli Skullcrusher

Strong Non-AQ season, an already developed wall of chorf guard and a block/break tackle centaur.


.46
U-Dub Elfskies

WAP Score:#DIV/0!
Coach: mrt1212
Talent: Reggie "The Edgy" Williams

Renowned coach and a staple NCBB team. But after 5 losses in a row, with the last two games being 0-3 blowouts, the Elfskies may be a bit checked out.


.45
Fayetteville Bronchospasms

WAP Score:#DIV/0!
Coach: Garcangel
Talent: Lots

Last seen drinking sweet-wine out of skink skulls after their championship win , the Bronchospasms are the team to beat this year. Must have been quite the team hangover to miss their first 3 games of the season though.



Onto the Not-As-Goods. These teams are either off to a rough start in OOC, or are just the perennial league punching bags.


.44
Indiana Horrors

WAP Score: 0.088
Coach: ganthony
Talent: Devil Coleman , Demon Bailey

Let's get a win this season!


.43
Appalahcian State Hillbillies

WAP Score: 0.143
Coach: Waagh
Talent: Skeeter Brown

Speaking of punching bags the Hillbillies average a dead player every 2 games. This may be their last season in the league as coach Waagh looks to abandon them for higher potential.


.42
[NCBB] BYU Cougars

WAP Score: 0.186
Coach: Swampserpent
Talent: Jim McMahon

The Cougars actually look pretty good on paper with some +ag, and a great thrower. This season Swampy just needs to work on the -35 TD Diff.


.41
Wastern Michigan BronKhornes

WAP Score: 0.207
Coach: paperbag4
Talent: Savannah Ayat

First BCS season and already one of the scariest big guys in the league. Teams got lots of block, lots of guard, and to their detriment lots of frenzy.


.40
UTEP Party Minors

WAP Score:0.215
Coach:razmus
Talent: Levi Carlson

Deadly blitzing pestigor, guard bloater wall, rookie rotspawn. However, the team may be more focused on partying than offense, or defense.


.39
Grunts of ARMY

WAP Score:0.246
Coach:TimR
Talent: Buck Heatseeker

It's orcs. Some armor (well better armor lately), some block, a great +ag blitzer. It also has a niggled +ag thrower looking to get splatted this season.


.38
Navy Midskeletonmen

WAP Score: 0.311
Coach:Aenir
Talent: Skulland Crossbonies IV

NAVY! NAVY! NAVY! NAVY! NAVY! NAVY! BOOOO TCU! Also Khemri with no +ag Sad


.37
Northern Virginia CC Hawks

WAP Score:0.311
Coach: Lorebass
Talent: Joshua Faid

The best Khorne team in the league!


.36
Berea Bleeding Angels

WAP Score: 0.328
Coach: Wolvezzzzzz
Talent: Priscilla

A couple +ST players but missing their +AG play makers. Berea burnt through a lot of cash last season and still come in with one of the lowest TVs in the league at 1440.


.35
U Pike Pain Bearers

WAP Score:0.335
Coach:Cervus
Talent: Dusk Dancer

A couple strong blitzers, lots of mobility and some unique passing game for dark elves. This team has lots of options but can't seem to find a W against a .500+ winning team.



Tune in tomorrow for the the rest of the WAP results!

On to the Potentials! These teams scored OK on the Winner Averaging Predictor. Still not the teams to bet the farm on but could pull out some miracles this season!


.34
StephenF.Austin LumberingJacks

WAP Score: 0.364
Coach: Durthu
Talent: Nefertum

They have the longest name of any team in the league! They also like to hit and hate tying.


.33
Cantucky Wildcats

WAP Score: 0.371
Coach: Wolvezzzzzzz
Talent: Eli

Coach Wolvezzz filled in for an NCBB departure and is running his second team as Chaos Dwarves. Pro-tip, if you play him put all your players 6 spaces away from his chorfs, he loves to GFI (43 in the last game!)


.32
Air Force Warpstone Falcons

WAP Score: 0.426
Coach: Roto
Talent: John Cannon , Carl Spaatz

I actually could have added a few more players to his talent field! This team loves stats and is still running 2 blitzers on top of a gutter runner. If there's ever a bowl season for Airforce it's this one.


.31
Alabama Silver Tide

WAP Score: 0.432
Coach: trea5on
Talent: Julio Jones

1 turn touchdown catcher high elves or an easy 2 turn touchdown with a strong arm/safe throw thrower. This team will surprise you if you don't pay attention! Need to fire their -ST catcher and start recouping the all time -8 TD Diff.


.30
Karak University

WAP Score: 0.441
Coach: Xeterog
Talent: Bunch of dwarves with guard

Doesn't matter what happens this season cause they already tied UNAM and killed one of their ghouls in the process! However, does Karak have the big brass rollers to invest in a deathroller this season and kick some asphalt?


.29
Texas Tech Red Reptiles

WAP Score: 0.478
Coach: HyperboLemuR
Talent: Jude Tasden , Jase Nucky

Ag4 skink, St5 +Ag Scorus Saurus, there's some superstars forming on this team. After a strong NonAq run Texas got smacked down by the Lumberingjacks and had 2 OOC losses. Can they turn this season around and quickly build back?


.28
Poli Puerkos

WAP Score: 0.492
Coach: GotrekSlayer
Talent: Wilson "Lieutenant" Alvarez

Poli's actually looking pretty good this season, especially with the Ag4 Runner. They have all the tools to make another bowl run, but can they win it this time?


.27
Nippon U Triumphant Lions

WAP Score: 0.510
Coach: Lorebass
Talent: Sakana Tai

Another ag4 skink! Problem with this team is that there isn't a block saurus anywhere to be found. Anyone else excited for the niggled dauntless skink to fail it's strength roll against an ogre?


.26
Paris University DeadJokers

WAP Score: 0.515
Coach: Doofr
Talent: Paolo Fratellini

Another solid NonAq team that had a rude awakening in the big leagues. They would have scored higher on the WAP but they're sitting on a 390,000 treasury with 2 more positionals to buy. Keep an eye out for this team this season!


.25
Mz State Bull Dawgz

WAP Score: 0.524
Coach: BillBrasky
Talent: Gibson

This team has the blitzer that can do it all! Carry, safety, blitz, and even toss a few completions. Gibson has flown under the radar and made it to his senior year a solid threat. Can he take the team to a bowl?


.24
Um, G'olden Go For Its!

WAP Score: 0.538
Coach: tussock
Talent: David "C this" Sutherland

Was not expecting G'olden to score this low but no wins in OOC and graduating so much talent put a damper on a solid season 35 bowl run and win. Irregardless Tussock is a great coach at building talent, but he only has 7 more games to do it.


.23
Bro-hio State Buckeyes

WAP Score: 0.543
Coach: OTS
Talent: Justin Fields

A tale of two wood elf teams. One with all the stats and one with none! No credible 1 turn score threat but watch out for turn two with that thrower!


.22
Ball State Crimson Birds

WAP Score: 0.550
Coach: petalwarfare
Talent: Gabe L.

A solid human team that's trying to do a little bit of everything. Only two remaining players have ever scored on the team and only 6 TD's between them. Look for a lot of ties this season!


.21
California Golden Lizards

WAP Score: 0.551
Coach: ex-convict
Talent: Kyle Harmon

We've been talking about Ag4 skinks but none of them have +Ma +Ma and block! That skink could take them to the finals, but the last Ag4 skink who made it went soft and couldnt close the deal.


.20
Ohio Wesleyan Battling Benders

WAP Score: 0.559
Coach: Jeffro
Talent: Jett Bender

New to the BCS and this team's beat-up, can enough players live to a bowl game? Look for some early retirements in the next couple games and an empty treasury.


.19
TCU Horned Rats

WAP Score: 0.561
Coach: FRSHMN
Talent: Justin Rogers (QB) #13

Every season TCU falls further into the history books. Can they reclaim some glory and dust off their trophy case? If they can't this season with their senior Ag5 thrower then what lies ahead in Season 37 for the former champs?


.18
Florida Rotting Gators

WAP Score: 0.579
Coach: Garnak
Talent: Block/Mighty Blow

Fitting that a nurgle team would have an 81-82 TD difference. Just stay 5 squares away and don't throw the ball. Look for some big bashing games against Karak, Navy, and Mz State this season.


.17
UC San Dogo Krytens

WAP Score: 0.580
Coach: JackassRampant
Talent: Aaron "Barbary Macaque" Kim

2 losses in OOC and still in the top 20!? Doesn't matter, this team can still win it all this year. Don't be fooled by the high elf name, these are Elven Union with extra armor.


.16
Charlotte's Forty Normers

WAP Score: 0.582
Coach: Bullroarer4
Talent: Bonnie Cone

More humans!? And these ones have two Ma9 catchers!? This team will almost always find a way to tie instead of put up an L. Watch out this season, they have tackle now!


.15
Oregon Waterfoul

WAP Score: 0.583
Coach: Kryten
Talent: Peter Charbonneau

Never ever ever ever ever underestimate Oregon. Couldn't put up a win in OOC but there's a lot of season left. Maybe they can win a bet against TCU this season and get their team bio updated with 36 seasons of stats?


.14
Kansas Red Leg Raiders

WAP Score: 0.585
Coach: Miyuso
Talent: Block

Another Norse team! Can they out average the Washington Huskarls?! All I know is they have 2 throwers so someone is going to try and catch the ball between mighty blows.




That wraps up the potentials! Tune in tomorrow for the Winner Averaging Predictor finale and your top 13 GOOD bets!

Thanks for tuning in for the final lucky 13 results of the Winner Averaging Predictor. These are the teams most likely to go the distance this season after a strong OOC combined with a solid history of winning!


.13
Ottawa Bee-Bees

WAP Score: 0.601
Coach: Nelphine
Talent: Casualties

Ottawa currently has no stand out starr players. With a +60 Cas Diff in 35 games, and having caused 13 deaths vs 4, most of their talents are based on their 4 mighty blow players and 2 dirty players. When they out-bash they usually win, usually...


.12
Miami BallHawks

WAP Score: 0.620
Coach: Jim_Fear
Talent: Natal "Starr Killer" Adams , Quentin Hogsback

No stat freaks, 1 catcher, and some blitzers that will find you wherever you hide. It's very easy to underestimate this Slann team but they have great positioning and will make you second guess your defensive and offensive setup every time.


11.
Hawaii Warrielves

WAP Score: 0.625
Coach: Apojar
Talent: Mekel Ealy , Jason Matthew-Sharsh

Hawaii has a tough team but it got a lot tamer with the death of Zach Daniel in OOC. Now the season rests on an unproven 1 SPP thrower. Will they change their Hawaii rules to "must end the turn with a hand-off to score"?


10.
Duke Blue-Green Devils

WAP Score: 0.655
Coach: Kzarik
Talent: Felton Capel III

Unsurprisingly Duke is in the top 10. Surprisingly they have the worst OOC record of the top 10 going 1-1-1 to start the season. Felton may be their main talent left over but the team mostly rides on the back of their coach and his chess-like positioning. With no Ag4 skink like the other lizard coaches he is going to have to carry this team to another bowl himself.


.9
Fresno State Raiders

WAP Score: 0.669
Coach: robocoyote
Talent: ?

Who? And they're coached by the guy who won a Superbowl? And they have the lowest TV in the top 25? Ok well hopefully it goes better than the amazon team did.


.8
Saint Louis Billikens

WAP Score: 0.686
Coach: Fool
Talent: Joshua Hightower , Dick Weber

The Billikens have two extremely strong throwers that will land a ball anywhere they want down field. Problem is they have about 1.5 turns before their defensive line falls apart and they get sacked. Watch for a ton of 2 turn touch downs and running away from bash teams.


.7
Gallaudet Deaf Bulls

WAP Score: 0.712
Coach: Sergtacos
Talent: Joey Mendis , Everett Polzin

Gallaudet was a favorite to win season 35 up until the battle of wills that was the Duke semi final. With the two most talented strength 4/5 players in the league they enter season 36 even stronger than before. Who is left in the league able to stop those bulls? Starr is dead, Pillsbury is graduated. Could this be the making of a John Cannon vs Joey Mendis bowl game?


.6
Washington Huskarls

WAP Score: 0.740
Coach: Dutchlife
Talent: Steinarr Grimlisonn

The Huskarls are actually the team with the worst league record in the top 10 and last season they went a poor 3-2-5. However last season they had a strong OOC start and this season they started even stronger as the first team on this list to go 3-0-0 in OOC. Maybe they learned a thing or two, or maybe they'll have 4 deaths in 1 game and implode again.


.5
Texas AM Les Agriculteurs

WAP Score: 0.776
Coach: Bazakastine
Talent: ?

I should really watch a game and figure out how you can even win with Bretonnians, let alone have the highest win ratio in the league. At 1500 TV look for star players in every game this season and maybe a crazy Bretonnian 1st year championship run.


.4
SMU Mousestangs

WAP Score: 0.776
Coach: Arcayn
Talent: "Fragile" Freddie Frawglegs , Zed "The Gimp" Gimpzelwitz

The 2nd team with an undefeated season 36 record. The Mousestangs have A LOT of speed, even their big guy moves 7 spaces. I would love to see a TCU/SMU semi-final but with a shallow bench SMU is 1 casualty heavy game away from a tilted season.


.3
UNAM Pumas Malditas

WAP Score: 0.777
Coach: MenonaLoco
Talent: El Rond , Sir William Marshall

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride, and then one time a bride in season 27 but then got divorced and left the NCBB. Now UNAM is back, single, and ready to mingle their way to another final. Only problem is Duke just had a bad breakup last season and is looking to rebound. All I know is maybe this season the phrase will change to "F*** UNAM".


.2
[NCBB] FlaSt Delfinoles

WAP Score: 0.829
Coach: Tzalaran
Talent: +AG

One turn touchdown dark elf, check. Ag6 bullcrap Elf, check. Almost every positional fully developed and ready to win, check. Only lost once in season 35, check. No assassin, not gonna make it to the final.


.1
John Molson School of Bruising

WAP Score: 0.850
Coach: Uber
Talent: Pavel Bury

This season they've already beat the NBFL superbowl champ, they gave USCD their first loss after an undefeated season, and they beat Waagh... One of 3 teams to have a 3-0-0 record this season they are off to a hot start. Maybe it's a fluke, maybe it's small sample sizing, but I would love to see a first year Nurgle team take it all the way to a final against a first year Bretonnian team.




That concludes the post OOC Winner Averaging Predictor results! Tune in mid season for the final predictions and see if the mighty have fallen, the underdogs have risen, or Fayetteville just wins it all and makes all of this middle school math pointless.

What a crazy start to the season. We’ve had brutal beatings, crazy touchdowns, and some vicious kills. We’ve also had several teams fail to show up for any of their games. But here in the FBC, we’ve been bringing the pain to all the other conferences. So, let’s take a look at how each of the teams have done this past weeks, as well as taking a look at their upcoming inter-conference schedule. Chances are we talk smack about your team along the way, so please, read on.


FlaSt Delfinoles
Image

Results
2/0/0

Matches
UTEP Party Minors – Managed to outbash the Nurgles on their way to scoring a touchdown.

Ohio Wesleyan Battling Benders – It may have cost a player or two, but FlaSt displayed their offensive skills, but even more, their defensive skills.

Nippon U Triumphant Lions – To be played Week 11.

Schedule
FlaSt has a balanced schedule, weaving back and forth between bash and ball teams. Regardless of their opponents’ play style, the Delfinoles will be giving up inducements, unless there is a freak accident or half of the team suddenly decide to quit. Be sure to tune into Weeks 9 and 10, which will see FlaSt take on Charlotte and Duke, respectively. Can this team make it happen, while avoiding the hurt their opponents will be looking to inflict?


Charlotte's Forty Normers
Image

Results
1/1/1

Matches
Oregon Waterfoul – A hard fought tie, where the Normers inflicted several wounds, but could not stop the Waterfoul from scoring.

California Golden Lizards – Keeping their head in the game, Charlotte put points on the board and rocked Cal with the Foe-Hammer.

Florida Rotting Gators – Human mojo was a no go against Florida, and Nurgle had their day.

Schedule
Charlotte has a potential difficult middle section of their in-conference match ups, including playing Duke Week 7 before their rivalry match Week 8 against U Pike. This isn’t saying that the first few weeks or the last two weeks are going to be easy for Charlotte, who will have to focus on scoring touchdowns and mitigating injuries. Week 4 against Texas AM should be a blast, so try not to miss it.


U Pike Pain Bearers
Image

Results
0/2/1

Matches
Alabama Silver Tide – U Pike put the crucial hurting on Alabama, and used their dark elf magic to come back and tie the match.

Cantucky Wildcats – In a surprise Chaos Dwarf match, U Pike did what they needed to do to avoid injuries and come back and tie the match at the end.

Washington Huskarls – Elven armor torn apart, combined with a poor performance, served up a loss.

Schedule
There’s not any rest for U Pike in their schedule for in-conference. An opener against Air Force, followed by Duke and FlaSt. What U Pike does have going in their favor is the possibility that their opponent’s previous opponent inflicts some damage on key players in a synergistic relationship. It will be an uphill battle for the season, but all it takes are two elves on the pitch to ruin an opponent’s day. Tune in for Week 6’s double-dark elf showdown, as U Pike and FlaSt square off.


Duke Blue-Green Devils

Image


Results
1/1/1

Matches
TCU Horned Rats – Duke succeeded in killing a talented Rat Ogre, but the rest of the match was all rat, as TCU won 4-1.

Berea Bleeding Angels – The lizards remained calm and cool, eliminating opposing players from the field, with a steady 1-0 win.

Hawaii Warrielves – A less than stellar performance by the Blue-Green Devils leads to a tie against Hawaii, with some key fails under pressure.

Schedule
Duke is another team with a center-heavy bash schedule, but the question on everyone’s mind is “Do bash teams matter when you’re a bash team?” We’ll have to wait and find out. Week 5 against Texas AM will be interesting, and I recommend you all to tune in. Week 9 against Air Force could have some impact on how Duke’s Week 10 rivalry match against FlaSt plays out.


Air Force Warpstone Falcons
Image

Results
1/1/1

Matches
SMU Mousestangs – A tough 4-0 loss, highlighting what can happen when Murder Rat is in the injured reserves.

BYU Cougars – An amazing comeback performance to tie the match after the elves took an early, commanding lead.

Navy Midskeletonmen – Air Force took the win, but Navy made them pay for it, fracturing Murder Rat’s skull. A bad omen for the season.

Schedule
Every week is something different for Air Force during in-conference play, so through the lack of consistency, expect to see the Falcons stay consistent with their game plan: maul the other team. Week 5 will be a rivalry match against Miami, but Week 9’s match against Duke will likely have greater impact on the final conference standings.


Grunts of ARMY
Image

Results
0/1/1

Matches
Kansas Red Leg Raiders – Even with all their mistakes, Kansas swung harder, and Army suffered.

Bro-hio State Buckeyes – To be played Week 11.

Poli Puerkos – Army did what they needed to do, stopping the dwarves from getting to the ball and scoring during their own drive. Even though Poli was able to tie the match, Army made a good showing.

Schedule
The schedule for Army is a repeating wave of Ball-Bash-Bash, giving them a chance to regroup and plan after every match. Look for an interesting match Week 7 as U Pike rolls into town. Will Army bring the Bash, or will they look to out-ball?


Miami BallHawks
Image

Results
1/2/0

Matches
Indiana Horrors – Miami pulled double duty, inflicting casualties while scoring 3 touchdowns.

Gallaudet Deaf Bulls – A win slipped into a tie as Miami became overconfident during the second half.

Ottawa Bee-Bees – Keeping true to their word, Miami permanently retired Julian Starr, and fought back from an early 2-0 deficit to tie the match.

Schedule
Miami’s in-conference schedule is front loaded with bash teams, facing Duke, Air Force, and Charlotte before seeing a possible break. Week 6 against Charlotte could be a real showdown, depending on how Week 5’s match against Air Force plays out.


Texas AM Les Agriculteurs
Image

Results
2/1/0

Matches
Paris University DeadJokers – An impressive comeback win, showing just what Texas can do when pushed.

Wastern Michigan BronKhornes – Even after a few early missteps, this was the “All Texas” show, wining 2-0.

Mz State Bull Dawgz – Even in this push-fest, Mz State doled out a beating on Texas, but the Agriculteurs would not let the orcs score, closing the match in a tie.

Schedule
This is the team everyone is watching to see how they perform in their first season in the big leagues. The first three weeks of in-conference are going to be rough, as Charlotte, FlaSt, and Duke are not going to stand aside and let Texas control the match. Any one or all of these matches could be an amazing display of coach and team talent.

__________________________________________


Now it’s game time to see how the members of the FBC do against one another. With a core of talented coaches, and some fierce teams, at this point how the FBC will shake out is anyone’s guess. Come bare witness as these teams battle it out.

See you all out there on the pitch.

Man, the madness that was the start of the season has simply continued. We’ve had a lot of blood spilt over the past four weeks, and there have even been a few touchdowns scored. Let’s see if we can get an idea of where the FBC stands going into the last three weeks of the season.



FlaSt Delfinoles
Image

Current Record
2/3/0

The Delfinoles missed their in-conference opener Week 4, but it may have been a blessing in disguise. They have managed to rack up 7 touchdowns in three matches (2.33 TDs per match), but they also allowed the same number of touchdowns, leading to three ties. The critical number is the number of casualties FlaSt has suffered, 11 in the same number of matches (3.66 casualties per match.) The team now finds itself smaller than it was before, but still with several key players/playmakers. They also find themselves facing bash teams for Weeks 9, 10, and 11. They can still end this season on a high note, earning a bowl bid, but the one thing FlaSt cannot do is afford to take any more casualties.



Charlotte's Forty Normers
Image

Current Record
1/2/3

Charlotte also missed their Week 4 in-conference opener, and after that they began to backslide a bit. They suffered a stunning defeat at the hands of Army, fought out a tie against Miami, and were out positioned by Duke. With the team still intact, and four matches left to play Charlotte is not out of the running for a bowl bid; but what they need to focus on is scoring touchdowns and securing victories. The issue is the majority of their remaining opponents are going to have that same mindset.



U Pike Pain Bearers
Image

Current Record
1/4/2

U Pike has been able to build their team back up to competitive size, and because of this, serving up two impressive ties, one against Duke and one against FlaSt. Not bad considering they have not inflicted a casualty in their past four matches while suffering 9 in return. But what they really need these final three weeks are some wins, which could keep them in the running for a low bowl placement. But the competition is going to be tough, and there are some potential inducement worries U Pike will need to contend with.



Duke Blue-Green Devils

Image


Current Record
3/3/1

Duke has been having a season, full of the wins you would expect from a topflight team and a topflight coach. They have a safety net of three matches in which they only need a single win to capture a bowl invitation, and if they can extend these matches into multiple wins it only increases the likelihood of a more prestigious bowl match up. Unless Nuffle intervenes, Duke will wrap up another successful season.



Air Force Warpstone Falcons
Image

Current Record
3/2/1

Air Force is on a tear this season, attempting to get the most out of John “Murder Rat” Cannon during his senior season. AF looks to be a single win away from going out in style, before the new regulations on team makeup truly take hold. As Air Force missed their Week 6 match up against Army they still have four matches to play, with the chance to secure bowl game. The difficult part will be keeping their vital players healthy so that they can put up a fight in the post season.



Grunts of ARMY
Image

Current Record
1/1/2

Army has been busy attempt to assist the Old World against a mysterious virus, and has therefore missed several of their match ups. With 6 games left to play Army is looking to be the disrupter in the FBC, and could have an impact on all the teams who have qualified for bowl match or are on the cusp. Damn, that’s exciting. Army itself, if they can stay loose, can steal one of them bowl spots for themselves as well. You have your marching orders, get out there and play.



Miami BallHawks
Image

Current Record
1/4/2

Miami must have been in need of funds for the season, as they appear to have sold their armor. 14 casualties in the past four matches (3.5 Cas per match), suffering two losses and two ties in the process. But Miami often do their best work when placed in a do-or-die scenario. Anything can still happen for those that believe in the Spirit of the Frog.



Texas AM Les Agriculteurs
Image

Current Record
2/4/0

Texas seems to have been struck by “The curse of the ties”, going 3-for-3 during the in-conference portion of the season. This does not include their Week 4 match which will be rescheduled for Week 11. So, 4 matches left to play, Texas can still come back and surprise everyone and ear a bowl bid. As even at 2/4/0, they are still technically undefeated. Keep an eye on them, and bring rocks to their games.


__________________________________________


With no clear champion, the FBC seems to be just drifting along, trying to prevent any other conference from harming their players, preferring to kill these players themselves. But hey, that’s Blood Bowl for you. Expect a strong finish from any of these teams, and you best watch your back.

See you all out there on the pitch.

Previous Position/Score: 43rd (0.143)

Not the final season the Hillbillies wanted to go out with


.44
Wastern Michigan BronKhornes

WAP Score: 0.256
Previous Position/Score: 41st (0.207)

Wastern also tripled their career wins this season!


.43
Grunts of ARMY

WAP Score: 0.306
Previous Position/Score: 39th (0.246)

Are they staying? Are they going? Either way they put a dent in Charlottes season this year.


.42
StephenF.Austin LumberingJacks

WAP Score: 0.307
Previous Position/Score: 34th (0.364)

Big drop for the big guys.


.41
Navy Midskeletonmen

WAP Score: 0.311
Previous Position/Score: 38th (0.320)

3 games left to potentially secure a bowl! That isn't McNurgles that is.


.40
Fighting Illinois 2020

WAP Score: 0.325
Previous Position/Score: 47th (#DIV/0!)

Another team who couldn't put up a win yet this season. Only 3 games played though.


.39
Nippon U Triumphant Lions

WAP Score: 0.363
Previous Position/Score: 27th (0.510)

Biggest drop on the predictor so far. A last minute addition to the season, they may have needed more summer training.


.38
Alabama Silver Tide

WAP Score: 0.364
Previous Position/Score: 31st (0.432)

Alabama has an amazing catcher now but are too late in the season to capitalize on him.


.37
Northern Virginia CC Hawks

WAP Score: 0.374
Previous Position/Score: 37th (0.311)

37 is their lucky number! Not really a bad season and some big wins/ties in their conference.


.36
Karak University

WAP Score: 0.376
Previous Position/Score: 30th (0.441)

Karak spent all it's good fortune on the UNAM tie earlier in the season. Nothing but casualties and more casualties against them this year.


.35
UTEP Party Minors

WAP Score: 0.379
Previous Position/Score: 40th (0.215)

They came, they saw, they partied, they went up 5 spots.


.34
U Pike Pain Bearers

WAP Score: 0.406
Previous Position/Score: 35th (0.335)

Average season but starting to look very developed and a better record than the last 2 seasons.


.33
U-Dub Elfskies

WAP Score: 0.438
Previous Position/Score: 46th (#DIV/0!)

Someone pull the pins out of their U-Dub voodoo doll. They haven't won in 10 games and at one point didn't score a single point for 5 games.


.32
Berea Bleeding Angels

WAP Score: 0.455
Previous Position/Score: 36th (0.328)

I think Wolvezzz is having more fun with Chorfs this season!


.31
Poli Puerkos

WAP Score: 0.464
Previous Position/Score: 28th (0.492)

Poli had all the tools but now they're fighting tooth and nail to turn their final 3 games into a bowl run.


.30
Mz State Bull Dawgz

WAP Score: 0.469
Previous Position/Score: 25th (0.524)

Their blitzer can do it all but it just wasn't enough this season.


.29
Charlotte's Forty Normers

WAP Score: 0.477
Previous Position/Score: 16th (0.582)

I don't think anyone expected Charlotte to end up here this season. They had a hard time against bigger, bashier teams this year.


.28
Air Force Warpstone Falcons

WAP Score: 0.487
Previous Position/Score: 32nd (0.426)

Air Force has had a good season. They lost their second blitzer forever but have only lost 1 game so far.


.27
Miami BallHawks

WAP Score: 0.488
Previous Position/Score: 12th (0.620)

Like Charlotte, Miami did not have the season expected of them. Natal lives but the bench is a bit shallow.


.26
Cantucky Wildcats

WAP Score: 0.495
Previous Position/Score: 33rd (0.371)

Cantucky is not looking for ties this season. They will do as many Go For Its as it takes to win a bowl spot, or die trying.


.25
Texas Tech Red Reptiles

WAP Score: 0.511
Previous Position/Score: 29th (0.478)

Texas came out of the NonAQ strong and placed better than predicted after a rough start but this definitely wasn't the season they expected of themselves.


.24
Um, G'olden Go For Its!

WAP Score: 0.540
Previous Position/Score: 24th (0.538)

Entered at 24th. Sitting at 24th now. Fitting for a team that has tied most of the way through their season. The bowl game hope is gone but can they win the final 3 games for team pride?
