Faltered again and fell to Stanford (10-5 (3-1)) 69-63.  We've really lost some of that early form and now I find myself forcing the issue a lot when I need to sit back and take what's being given.  Gotta regroup now as we face #10 Cal next.

Record stands at 13-3 (2-3), still ranked #13

Another tough loss.  We faced #10 Cal and went from 7 up in the first half to 12 down with 12 minutes to go in the game.  Worked our way to within 3 points, but ultimately couldn't catch them and lost 78-70.  Coming into the game Cal was averaging 85 points a game so I knew they would be tough.  We just couldn't get the stops when we needed them.

Cal moves to #8 and we fall to #18.  On the road to southern California to face UCLA and then USC.

This sounds like an awesome season...in real life, it's not THAT uncommon for a team to go unbeaten in early-season play and rise up in the polls, only to come crashing down when conference play starts.

Thanks, Mike.  It has been a lot of fun so far.

We're going back home to host Washington State after a successful road trip.  We beat UCLA 74-67 in the 13th toughest place to play.  Those tough arenas are absolute nightmares to shoot free throws in.  We took a 16 point lead midway through the 2nd half, but they clawed back to within 8 and then started fouling and picked and pecked to stay close.  We just outlasted them.  Then we defeated USC 68-61 after tying the game with 3 minutes left and making a couple of threes to seal the deal.  This game should have been a blowout as USC shot very poorly and we killed them on rebounds.  However, we only shot 28% from the floor and trailed 27-22 after the first half.  We regrouped and scored a fantastic 46 points in the second half and despite poor free throw shooting again (the road) we were able to overcome the late fouling and preserve the win.  UCLA and USC are at the bottom of the conference standings and we have moved up from 8th to tied for 3rd (5 way tie).

15-4 (4-4) and #16 in the polls. 

Our current tournament outlook is, according to the game, thus:  "Polls can lie, but Washington has been playing well lately and deserves a bid at the moment."

WSU is struggling this season and we're at home so hoping to keep the momentum going.  I've learned that you can't take any conference game lightly with this game.

Ted, I might have missed it but what settings are you using?  I was thinking about going 12 minutes, not touching the sliders and all-conference.  I am still trying to figure out who to play with but it will be from a mid-major conference on the East Coast.

Brent, I'm using sliders I found on OS right after release and don't remember their name, but I have them on my PC in a text file and can send it to you if you PM me your email. 

I've been happy with them right from the go and the only thing I do is play 20 minute halves instead of 18 like the file says.  I like the amount of fouls and except for occasional weird looking charging calls I like the way the fouls look.  I do not know much about BB so I don't know if the stats my players are accumulating are realistic or not, but they seem believable.   The games are balanced, have good momentum, ebb and flow, and are emotional.  And I have an attachment to my players.  That's all I ask for in a sports game anymore for the most part.

I'm happy to send them if you tell me where.  I'd post them here, but I'm having trouble with the site taking long posts.

I will send you a PM.  Going with 15 minutes and All-Conference and will look at tweaking after a few games.

I decided to start a different kind of dynasty (a 4 year dynasty with the return of Larry Bird at Indiana State). I turned off going pro in the options because he would be bound for the NBA early and I did not want that.  I edited one of the existing freshmen and made what looks almost like a young Larry Bird, Down to the long socks and goofy hair.  He is rated around a 85 with a premium on shooting and passing.  A solid Defender and good rebounder with the jumping skills of a 500 pound sumo wrestler (I made him the lowest dunking rating 10 out of 100).  Though due to his size he did make a dunk in the first game.

So we begin the dynasty journey with Larry Bird and the Indiana St sycamores taking on the Missouri Valley Conference. We are an up-tempo team with three skilled 3-point shooters.

Season One 

Game one   Opening Round   Indiana State (11 seed) - LSU  (6 seed) (played at Arizona State)

Bird starts the first half on fire and the rest of the team is cold. Down most of the first half ISU keeps it close and finds themselves down by a point at the half.  As things heat up in the second half the LSU coach realizes that Larry Bird has been re-created and proceeds to double and on a couple occasions triple teaming Bird, leaving plenty of open shots for the rest of the team.  Bird hits a three pointer to tie the game with under a minute left.  LSU scores as they driain the shot clock. With 14 seconds left the PG takes the ball down the court and makes and awkward layup as time expires, 80-80 and we head to overtime.  In overtime ISU is outclassed and LSU hits all but one free throw to take the victory as three ISU players foul out of the game.

Final Score   LSU 97   ISU  95  OT

Bird 51 points  16 Rebounds  3 steals  1 block

Sorry about that, Brent.  I deleted a few pm's and made room, but also just sent it to your email posted here.

Ignore what he says at the top of the text about the roster file.  I just use default rosters and the sliders work fine.
