Got Kevin ready to roll and we are off.  Let's try and get the recruiting done as soon as possible.  Then once we enter the season let's set a goal for one game (and recruiting session) a week. Most games are against the CPU so scheduling with others will not be a big issue.  Whenever all 4 of us have completed a week (even if it is only been 2 or 3 days) I will roll it over to the next week.  Since we are going to be spending time recruiting (in many cases against each other) it would be nice to get a few seasons in this year.

There is also the option to put any player on Auto-pilot.  So if you have a vacation, illness that might hold the dynasty up, you can let the CPU handle the upcoming week (or however long is needed) for you.

Well I was getting the "you know what" kicked out of me today.  Fresno is up 34-7 at the half and anything that could go wrong, did.  I had to abandon the run and came away a failed onside kick  from having a chance to tie.

The 2 point conversion that game me a chance for an onside and one last ditch effort.

http://www.easports.com/media/play/video/24877379 - http://www.easports.com/media/play/video/24877379

Final score  44-36.  Funny thing is I threw for 498 yards and lost a game.  2 ints and 2 fumbles will do that to you.  I had some really big drops in the game also. I am talking throw my controller at the TV set drops. That said I actually appreciated the fact that these drops are in the game and just the right amount. It happens in real life and I get just as pissed when it happens to my team.

After jumping to an early 14-0 lead, Rutgers loses 21-14 to #13 Penn State.

My running game is carrying my offense. I really need to work on my passing game, and not using play-action is not helping matters.

Florida gives me a little payback with Kevin this week. Everyone is now 1-1. Only two games this week, Kevin and Jason only have recruiting to do.

Recruiting leaders?

Cincy has 2 - 3 star hard commits. How are the rest of you doing? THey do not show the ranking until week 5.

One thing I noticed about recruiting which seems glitchy was in my offline dynasty with OU that I quit after this happened. I went into the OU/Tex game undefeated. Texas had already lost one to Tech. I had a ton of invites travel for this game knowing a win would surely lock a few close recruits up (between me and Texas). I blow Texas out 41-10 and I roll the week over and find that every single player had soft commited to Texas. I guess Mack was promising these guys playing time and Freshman All American status because it really made no sense. Most of the guys showed they had an A to A+ time on the trip.  Guess Mack Brown had some females lined up for them.

Anyway I am going to do an offline dyn with a really bad team and see if I can turn them into champions. Somewhere far away from the Texas recruiting grounds. Wink

I did my recruiting.  Isn't it showing up as "ready to advance?"

Yes, Florida kicked my butt.  In previous versions of this game, on AA level, I could take a team like Akron and beat a team like Florida.  This year, I just couldn't get anything done on offense.  Florida's defense was so fast.  I could barely get a pass off, and I couldn't turn good runs into game-breaking runs because of their speed.  And, ratings-wise, my team is fast!  I was in the game 10-0 at half, 17-0 at the end of three (my receiver fumbled deep in Florida territory; I should've had 7 on the board by the end of the 3rd), but then I got desperate.  Florida made me pay, turning two TO's into 14 points.  I turned it over 4 times in the game (2 fumbles, 2 picks).
Oh well, I have WKU next week, so hopefully I'll get back on the winning track before opening Big East play.
I have one 3-star recruit so far, and a bunch of other 3-stars that have me "first" in the rankings.  I have a couple of 4-stars interested, but no 5-stars are giving my program a look.

LOL  No problem.  Sometimes it will also show you as having not completed recruiting if you have any time left but have talked to each of your recruits (at least it does in offline dyn).

I am strugling to find a team I want to run an online dynasty with.  Might just start another one with OU and avoid players that have Texas high up on their list. Embarrassed

I would like to thank the heavy rains and 2 missed OSU field goals as Cincinnati beats #2 Ohio St 10-7.  I held the OSU offense to 130 total yards of offense, which I needed with 2 ints and a fumble. Two of which were inside OSU's 30. Score a FG with just over 2 minutes left. I was a bit shocked it did not make my ESPN Classic list.

I noticed the restarts after the game was played but since there was a loss I thought nothing of it.  To set a rule. If you have to restart a game, post the reason for it, after the game.

Koebner, we want you to stick around. I should have brought this up after it happened.

That has been my dream for years. In game saves should be mandatory by now. I think EA just expects people to use Super Sim in such a case. I have run Super Sim enough that I do not trust it outside a 28 point lead, in the 4th quarter.

P.S. Still need you to finish recruiting before we can advance.

I struggled with 'Cuse.  I had a 17-7 lead, and ending up going down 21-17 on two absolute bombs.  I cannot rush the QB in this game, for some reason.  If I get close, the ball is magically thrown to an open receiver.  If I don't get there, the QB gets 10 seconds to complete a bomb and almost always completes it, even if I have coverage.  I also picked one off, and then fumbled on the return!  I made the game closer than it should've been, but I'm frustrated with the lack of a pass rush.  I'm not having as much of a problem with it in my "offline" dynasty.

Just for grins our sack totals

5 games
Cincy  - 13 
WV  -  9

4 games - for some reason it does not include your last game, only mine.
USF  - 4
Rutgers  - 3

I was in the middle of the pack with 13 (top teams had 20).  Only one team was lower than Rutgers. So it does appear we are on the low side of things. 

One thing I did not check for you guys but on my end seemed really high were the tipped passes.  I was averaging 7 a game.

It's funny - sometimes I'll get there in 2 seconds, and the pass is still completed!  Maybe it is a "ratings" thing and the programming determines that the play will be a completed pass, regardless. 
 
All of my sacks are from DB's on blitzes!  If I don't get pressure, though, I absolutely get killed.  Getting close to the QB certainly causes more bad passes and incompletions, which helps.  Florida had no problem sacking me, LOL.  I'll keep plugging away.  I feel good about my running game and my run defense, though.

I offer each of my players (that I really want) a scholarship the first week.  There really is no exact science to it.  If the player has your school listed first you definitely want to offer a scholarship. You will only get an instant signing by a player that has your school first, at least it has been that way from experience.

Bad news, guys, my Elite isn't working.  It's freezing up after about 5 minutes of use, or the screen just goes black, and it locks up.  I'm going to try some things I saw on the Xbox forums (clear the cache, re-seat the hard drive), and I'm hopeful that will work.  If you have any ideas, I'd appreciate them.
 
Financially, I won't be able to replace it any time soon (it's just not high on the list right now, so to speak).

I tried the fixes with no luck.  I called 1-800-4MYXBOX and they weren't much help.  It would cost $130 to fix it.  Yeah, right.  I can get a new arcade for that, just about, and put my HD on it.  No thanks.  I also tried to get a refund on my Gold Live account, but they wouldn't give me that, either, since it has been over 60 days.  I told them I wasn't pleased, LOL, but they didn't seem to want to budge.
 
When I bought it, I also bought a 3-year warranty.  I got the paperwork, and found out it expired in May.  Darn!  Oh well...  It will be a little while yet before I get a new one.  Sorry I can't continue.
 
Jason - the slim looks good, but I may just go for a used arcade unit, or something like that.  I also expect some good holiday bundle deals, so I may even wait until year-end.
 
Do you guys know if GameStop would take a "broken" 360 in on trade?  Actually, if they tested it out, it would probably work - for about 3-5 minutes, anyway!  :-)  Plus, I couldn't keep my HD if I traded it in.  But I'd be curious - if they gave $40 or something like that, and a used Arcade unit is under $100 or so, I may be able to replace it sooner.  Just thinking over my options...

Heh, yea there is that little chat pop up  and stuff but it is harmless. I have my spyware programs running and it showed nothing malicious.

In regards to Gamestop, you can sell the console w/o the HD.  They consider them separate last I checked. Heck I would try trading it in and worst case scenario it craps out at the store and you take it home.

If you want I can just put you on auto-pilot or if you still want to recruit online, I can let you do that and the CPU just sims any game not played once I advance to next week.

If you have a controller and the original A/V cables,take it to GS.
They will test it out;if it boots up and can read a game you will get full trade.
If not,they may still take it, subtracting a "refurb fee" from your trade value.

Thanks, guys, I'll think about it.
 
Go ahead and put me on "autopilot," Brent.  I honestly have no idea how soon I'll be able to replace my 360.  Maybe you guys will still be playing...

Unfortunately I had to remove your team since the week we were on had you playing an actual person.  It would have required me to sim the game which would not be fair to Koebner. Fortunately you can add a team in an online dynasty any time you wish.  So just let me know and I will get you back in when you get another 360.

Koebner, you now have a game against USF (CPU).

Just one of "those" games.Syracuse went up 21-0,I played lousy D and finally poured it on in the 4th quarter to tie it,then spit the bit.Overall,WVU defense isn't very good.
My starting QB is going to miss a month,but the backup was pretty impressive(Coley White,Pats' brother).

I had my struggles with Syracuse. We pulled it out 45-28 but it was much closer than that.  Syracuse must have a pretty good QB because he burned me long twice and their running game was really tough.  That FB made some big plays and if not for a couple of fumbles in the first half I might be looking at a loss. They were able to stuff my running game but their secondary killed em.

My starting QB was out for 3 games, but luckily I was able to go 2-1 with my left-handed backup, which took some getting used to.

Agree on their running game,they got a consistent 5-6 yards a pop on me.
QB made big plays against the zone,I was a little better playing man.

I've been using the WVU 3-3-5 defense,which I'm not particularly fond of.

I know the feeling on the 3-3-5.  I used to always run an Air Force dynasty (for the option offense) and had to switch to a 3-4 each year because they ran it. So few teams do but TCU plays a pretty tough 3-3-5.

Akron played a 3-3-5 during the JD Brookhart era.  They didn't play it very well; they sucked.  I'm glad they're going to a more "conventional" D under their new coach.

Advancing to week 11 - or as I like to call it, week of finally beating Koebner!

Cincinnati moves up to #7 and moving on up

Me and Koebner played a really good game today.  It was close throughout, with Cincy keeping a lead for the majority of the game.  Cincy was up by a FG and driving late in the game. With just over a minute on the clock and with a third down near the goaline, a remarkable ONE HANDED TD catch, in traffic, puts the game out of reach.

Final score  Cincy 24  WVU  14

Jason has a CPU game.


Recruiting Classes (going off my memory this week)

Brent #22 three 4* players and nine 3* players
Jason #25 has thirteen 3* players
Koebner #96 has two 4* players

Koebner was really confident too.  I like that, it makes a victory that much sweeter.  My team knows what is at stake (Big East title and a BCS Bowl game). You go ahead and hurry up and get that Syracuse game in.  Wink

Syracuse scores a big 17-14 upset over Rutgers. My 3 interceptions and 2 lost fumbles played a big role in my tough loss. Rutgers looks to rebound with a big win against Cincinnati next.

Just for the record, I used a new controller tonight and blame that for my poor performance Wink.
