MexiRican35 is the most secure coach in the country in week 8 with 76% "approval rating"
Wow, Tulane with a 3* QB signing. Nicely done dakota7
Lets try and knock these games out before the deadline. I'll be out late Saturday night so if we can get them done tonight or by noon PST Saturday, then do it!
Edit...after looking at the schedule, lets shoot for an advance tonight. 2 users have bye weeks and 2 users have already played. Come on fellas, we need to crank these seasons out to make the CC work.
We'll also have to figure out how / when to do the offseason. Seems like we will all need to be online for the CC to work right. Otherwise, we could be sitting on that spot for days waiting on one guy to decide where he wants to go. More on that to come.
I will try to come home from lunch to knock the game out.
Memphis gets run out of the building again. This time by ECU. Once again, QB gets hurt and misses the 2nd half.
My secret plan is working. Do bad at the beginning of the season so I am lower ranked, and then beat those "higher ranked" teams so I get that boost.
Defensive struggle in this one against the Huskies. NIU was able to garner 6 total sacks as the o-line has just done a horrible job pass blocking as of late. What helped though was that the Broncs got 3 interceptions off of Harnish and only allowed 117 total yards. Next up, its East Side Michigan vs West Side Michigan.
Western Michigan 22 - Northern Illinois 0
Nebraska could not stop the run to save their lives. T-Magic opens that game with 2 INTs on the first 2 Nebraska plays of the game. Nearly 200 yards rushing for FB Hassin and HB Brown... EACH. Army despite constantly shooting themselves in the foot with holding calls, consistently ran for first downs running on 3rd and med-long yardage. Army did not break 30 yards in one play but managed to grind out first downs and points while somehow the defense stifled the Husker offense. T. Magic failed to find open WR, unsuccessfully ran from shotgun and gave his punter a lot of work.
Nice win...I don't know how the hell you do it!
FIU absolutely stuns the Washington Huskies and wins by in a blowout 42-17. The Golden Panthers defense forced 5 turnovers including 4 interceptions, one of them returned 102 yards for a touchdown by FIU CB Terrence Taylor which made the score 14-3 in the first quarter and gave FIU alot of momentum early in the game. After a UW touchdown made the score 14-10, FIU would add another TD with only 8 seconds left in the half on a terrific catch by Junior Mertile. FIU would take all the momentum into the half and would dominate the 3rd quarter with 2 rushing touchdowns by HB Darriet Perry making the score 35-10 going into the 4th quarter. Washington would score early in the 4th quarter but FIU would add a late touchdown and win by a score of 42-17. FIU HB Darriet Perry was named player of the game and finished with 131 yards on 25 carries including 2 touchdowns. Next week FIU goes on the road and takes on Arkansas State.
Hawai'i - 24
San Jose State - 31
Spartans reel off there 4th victory in a row in dramatic fashion, scoring the tie-breaking touchdown with just 13 seconds to play. Hawai'i completed their Hail Mary attempt but it wound up short of the goal line. Ugly game for the passing offenses. Combined there were 9 interceptions thrown (5 by SJSU, 4 by Hawai'i). The Spartans rushed the ball well enough to keep the Warrior's defense off balance, gaining 129 yards on the ground and 230 through the air. San Jose State improves to 4-3 overall, 2-1 in the WAC. Coach Chem feels pretty good about his job security at this point!

Nautica for dakota
