    National Game of the Week

    Lincoln, Nebraska-- LSU coming off a National Title apperance and looking to write the ending a different way then it ended last year as they travel to Cornhusker territory to take on a team that is trying to reach the elite level. LSU has the advantage in overall, offense and defensive ratings, A+, A-, A+ while Nebraska goes B+, B+ & B.

    Can Taylor Martinez and Rex Burkhead grind out long enough drives to keep LSU at bay while the defense tries to reclaim the blackshirt title? Obviously Zach Mettenburger is an upgrade to Jordan Jefferson but will he be given free reign on the offense, the defense will be on par to last years squad but probably not the WOW stuff they did a year ago. A little subplot as Nebraska had hired away Bo Pelini as Coach jusblaze09 takes over for Pelini and it will be interesting to see if he kept him on staff as the DC or some of his schemes.

    I expect this one to be in a pretty contested game with LSU taking it in the end at 31-27.

    ACC/BIG 10 Match-UP

    Chapel Hill, NC-- A relatively weird matchup between the two schools, with history in two different sports as Michigan flashes the football history and the Tar Heels have a more prominent basketball program. Michigan with great expectations coming off a great year in 2011, Denard and Company look to spread the offense, running and gunning through the competition. As they will have the overall, offense and defense rating advantage here A+, A, B+ compared to UNCs B+, B+ and B.

    If there is a team to beat Michigan, it would be a UNC type team that is able to pound the ball between the tackles with Giovani Bernard and then opening it up for Bryn Renner in the passing game. Then don't sell their defense short as Butch Davis recruit high caliber players before he was axed as head coach. As long as UNC doesn't get down early and have to play from behind, this game will come down to the wire, but why predict that? Denard will have his way through the air which will setup his running lanes along with the spread option scheme.

    Michigan walks away with this 35-17.

    I'm very pleased with my first week of recruiting--I landed two of my top-3 targets on the board. The only problem is that I really need two positions in particular, but I only drew low interest from a couple guys. I guess I'll dip down into those 2* guys to see if I can find a gem.

    I'm really interested to see how Drunken rolls with the pro-style LSU offense. I think I'd put my money on LSU because I just don't trust Martinez against an elite defense.

    On the other hand, I think I'd take NC to cover the spread vs Michigan (if it existed). I know krt likes to run the ball and he has a beast of a running back. I predict Michigan to win it, but not by much.

    Does anybody have any ideas on how to get rid of the buggy controls? I randomly spin/dive/switch players quite a lot. I'm not sure if it's my controller or if the game is just bugged.

    I turned off the motion control so I don't think that is the culprit.

    I switched controllers and was able to make user plays more easily. I have three and was using one that i had been using constantly for a while. I almost posted it this morning, but I thought I'd get the "yeah, sure its the controller..." routine. Then I remembered york is the commish of another league now.

    I got hit with the punt shank glitch this game too. I'm hoping for an early patch...

    Anyways, the summary of the opener is coming up.

    I always have a spreadsheet for recruiting. Also, did a big board this year so no worries about the CPU tacking crappy players on.
