    2011 Scheduling Issues

    Here's a few issues I'm running into:

    1 - VT and FSU don't play.
    2 - I don't have a user playing Miami anymore.
    3 - WVU, OSU, and Oregon have no scheduled user games. I think MSU might not have any, either.
    4 - I need to give myself a tough road, since I'm rated #1 and people are always looking for reasons to say the commish is setting himself up for a title.
    5 - Texas (who I'd like to schedule) has Nebraska and BYU already.

    If VT and Oregon want to play, that leaves me and WVU without user games. Andy and I have already played, and I don't want to reschedule that game two weeks after it was played last. I'm thinking MSU and WVU would make a decent match-up, but that leaves me with a hole to fill.

    Any ideas who I should play? Road trip to FSU? Maybe add a visit from SMU or UTEP?

    I'll work it out this afternoon, but I thought I would post so you guys knew just how difficult it can be to schedule all this stuff in a fair and balanced (pardon the FoxNews-ism) way.

    If possible, I'd prefer not to get ass-raped by Ohio St. this season.

    FSU is down for whatever! We will take on all comers, anytime any place! "I ain't never scared"!

    I will play, just take out one of the BIG BCS games so I can play you, I don't want to have to play two major powers in one year.

    Any chance my big BCS matchup this year can be one of those vastly overrated ranked teams who only rate as a B- overall? ;) Yup, I'm a pussy, and I plan on staying this way for a couple of seasons!

    I think I'll probably end up going to FSU.

    Anyone want any BCS busters on their schedule?

    Anyone want 'Bama?

    Just a few things to think about.

    Is beating Auburn a goal for me because they're on my sched for the moment? I'm cool with keeping it that way, but replacing them with a Texas team like A&M or Tech would be cool, too.

    I think I'm going to hook up with FSU

    WVU should play MSU, and maybe SMU or UTEP. I think UTEP and BYU play, so maybe I'll make it WVU and SMU.

    I'm going to shoot for a week one Oregon-VT game, and I'm goignt o try to schedule OSU-FSU for a bit later in the year. Might not be able to, though.

    VT, Oregon, and I can expect one more tough non-con game, be it against a user, or a quality CPU team. MSU has the SEC to deal with. WVU might have two users. Texas and Neb play each other, maybe twice. SMU and UTEP play each other, and probably another user, which makes their roads difficult. FSU has me, and a shot at a championship game. BYU has Texas, I think, and UTEP also, plus the MWC, which is no picnic.

    I'll see how the weeks work out. This could change, but it's close.

    If changing the team changes the goal, I'd gladly make the switch. But I don't want to if the goals are set. I'll make the change, and you tell me if the goals changes. If it doesn't, I'll switch it back before we launch.

    I'm not going to post everyone's week-by-week, but I'll post you non-cons and anything about your schedule I don't like, but couldn't help.

    For example - WVU has rivalry games with 2 non-con teams, Marshall and Maryland, meaning their non-con schedule is f-ed up in regards to playing other users. So, to schedule a game wit Bulldog, I had to leave WVU open two out of the first four weeks, which isn't likely to happen for real.

    Only one of us plays in week 14 (I think it's ego vs Auburn, which is a game I didn't want to change because of the team goals he has) so we can burn through that week and get to championship week quickly. I'll post in another thread in a little while.

    Hey, AG. I'm home now. If you want to change the game, I can let you know whether or not the goal changes with it. But whatever you want to do, I'm cool. I was just curious to see how that works.

    arch - cancel my week 15 game v. washington. and add a user game in the first few weeks. I would like to keep my lsu game. my non con would be maryland, marshall, lsu, a user game (week 2?), and a week one cupcakey school in the mac if possible.

    I was able to move things around to give you the same games, without all the gaps. You might like it better if you take another look.

    I moved the WVU schedule around to make it look more real, and I moved the Auburn game away from week 14, so we should all be open there now.

    i think the ea site only allows you to look at the sched. that the cpu gives you.
