    It's my understanding that darr is heading out of town this morning so I have set him on AP. Cheez may know more. Anyways, if you guys can't get your user bowl game in this morning / afternoon, go ahead and play the CPU. We should be able to advance by this evening.

    Army 52
    Oklahoma 46

    One for the Thumb

    Army wins its fifth national title in dramatic fashion: Quadruple Overtime. Up 3 in the late 3rd quarter, Oklahoma pulled off an incredible TD drive converting 5 4th downs in a row. Down 10 in the fourth things looked bleak for army. Army grinded out a hurry up triple option drive but settled for the FG to cut the lead to 7. On the next Oklahoma possesion on 3rd and inches, the tiny HB Finch was slammed into by a blitzing Safty and coughed up the ball. Army scoped up the fumble before a diving landry jones could fall on it, and ran 40 yards for the game tying TD. Oklahoma got in range for a 55 yard game winner but the kick fell just short: Overtime!

    Army won the toss and held Oklahoma to a FG, but failed to convert 3rd and 2 on their try and drew even 31. Army ground out a score on the ground on the next possession and kicked the Extra point to go up 7. Oklahoma scored on there first play to force a 3rd overtime tied at 38. The first play of the 3rd OT was another Oklahoma TD. On the 2 pt conversion Army tackled the shotgun run at the 8 yard line but were called for a facemask. The second attempt from the 4 yard line resulted in a touchdown when 2 Army tacklers whiffed on the HB in the backfield.

    Down 8 Army's offense struggled, star FB Jared Hassin finally had to concede he was too injured to play after returning from 3 previous injuries in the game. Forced into 4th and 14 Trent Steelman connected on a 18 yard TD pass-- this was his 3rd Completion of the game. Army Plowed the 2pt conversion up the gut to tie the game a 46.

    In the 4th OT, army started and ground the ball on the triple option for the TD but failed the 2 pt Conversion. Oklahoma was sacked on a screen pass, threw a floater that was batted down in the endzone, then took another sack. On fourth and 24, Oklahoma floated one more prayer to the endzone but the army defenders batted the ball down. Thus making Army the most unlikely of 2012 ncaa Champions.

    I had a power surge and it shut my xbox off. We had one this morning, first ever in this house, and now a second one (of course while I'm playing). It might be from my air conditioner, but I'm not sure. I'm gonna replay and if it happens again I can just take a sim.

    I got the error on the game that reported. I left the retry message up all night and tried again in the morning. It still said it failed but then the score showed up when I went back to online dynasties. I don't know if it actually reported last night or this morning

    we dont have to. You can always "accidentally" delete the dynasty and force us to start over with better teams with coaching carousel off :D
