Bama shakes off pesky FSU 45-34. This was a tight game all the way til the last bama drive. Trading TD's and FGs...the game was tied up at 24 at the half, then 31 all until Bama finally got the monkey off its back and went up 38-34 at the end of the 4th quarter. FSU went for it on 4th and 3 from Bamas 30 yard line and turned the ball over due to an INT. While trying to run out the clock, Bama's Blake Sims capped off a great game with a 53 yd TD counter play.
the captions didn't always work the way i wanted them to, so pls forgive, lol.
#120-0 vs 1-0 (1-0)9/6/14 3:30pm Stanford decided to break out the all black uniforms this season against the Army Black Knights. Last year Stanford wore the all blacks against USC and they lost. Will another loss today retire the black unis for good? The Cardinal debut their new Air Raid offense this game as well and the team looked good moving the ball down field with ease. Their opening drive ended with a one yard touchdown on the legs of Barry Sanders Jr. The Cardinal defense would also shut down the Army option on the first drive by going three and out. Army would tie the game on their second possession as HB Scott took the ball in from 19 yards out when the linebacker from the Cardinal dove right in front of Scott and missed the tackle in a come on son moment. The new air raid started to falter at the end of the first quarter as Stanford would not get a first down and they would also go three and out their first drive of the second quarter. The Black Knights would take the lead midway through the second quarter on a QB keeper where Angel Santiago cut up the Cardinal defense for 77 yards. After two consecutive three and outs the Stanford offense had a three play 74 yard drive capped off with a Will Ellis 59 yard TD catch. Coach Clutch went on record to say that his offense is "bi-polar." Stanford would reclaim the lead on their next drive when Eric Schultz hooked up with Ty Montgomery from seven yards out and who was able to hold onto the ball after a big hit in the end zone. Army was looking to again tie the game up on their last drive of the half. Army would move the ball all the way into the red zone using the passing game before Santiago took off on a scramble and fumbled the ball on the hit by safety Jordan Richards. Army would open the second half with a three and out. So did Stanford and then Army again. The second half scoring started with Eric Schultz running it in from 1 yards out on the zone read where LT Cameron Flemming was able to kick out and put a monster block on the cornerback. Army would move the ball once again and also convert a fourth and two from the Cardinal 28 yard line but the drive would end on a 35 yard field goal miss. Taking a 28-14 lead into the fourth, Stanford would add another three points early in the fourth on a Phillips 43 yard field goal. The longest field goal since for Stanford since coach Clutch has been there. Army would go for it on a fourth and inches from their own 38 yard line. Santiago would have a negative two yard run on the option keeper. Barry Sanders Jr. would provide the final touchdown of the game on a two yard run. Army's hopes would end on a fourth and two from the Stanford 43 yard line as Santiago was once again denied on the option keeper. Stanford wins a tough game from Army thanks to the defense stepping up in the final two quarters of the game 38-14. A. Santiago: 15/19 170-Yds, 20-Att 117-Yds 1-TDL. Dixon: 8-Att 33-YdsC. Lawrence: 4-Rec 77-Yds E. Schultz: 23/35 315-Yds 2-TD, 1 rush TDB. Sanders Jr.: 26-Att 96-Yds 2-TDW. Ellis: 5-Rec 140-Yds 1-TD
Gator's struggle early but finish strong win 24-6 Gainesville. FL- The 2014 season is underway and the #9 Florida Gators played host to WAC opponent Idaho. It was the first game for Florida's new coordinators and a chance to get an early look at some of the talented freshman that the Gators brought in. On paper this game looks like a cake walk for the Gators but thats why they play the game. Idaho won the toss and elected to start with the ball and they made the new look Gator defense look silly as they hit a monster 60 yard pass on 3rd down to get the ball inside the Florida redzone. The Gator defense would hold and force a long(for there kicker lol) field goal attempt from Idaho and they missed it short. Florida's first possession saw Mack Brown get stuffed in the backfield twice and then a dropped third down pass to end the drive. Idaho's offense once again could not be stopped and marched right down the field but again would stall out and be forced to kick a field goal but this time it was from inside the 10 so it was a chip shot 3-0 Idaho. After a decent return Mack Brown finally got rolling and it sparked the Gator offense to get down into field goal range and that is what they would get to tie the game heading into the 2nd. The Gator offense looked terrible in the second quarter and did not even get close to midfield and were shut out by Idaho. On the flipside the Idaho offense would put together one good drive and get another field goal to take a 6-3 lead and that was the score at the half. The halftime speech at the half from coach Carder must have inspired because they came out fired up and marched straight down the field using up most of the third and capped off the long drive with a 24 yard touchdown pass to Quinton Dunbar 10-6 Gators. Florida's defense finally were able to shut down Idaho's run offense and force a 3 and out and on Florida's next drive Brissett once again found Dunbar for a 6 yard touchdown to take a 17-6 lead into the 4th. The 4th quarter was no different from the third as the Florida defense had the clamps on the Idaho offense and the Florida offense was riding the legs of Mack Brown who in the 4th finally found the endzone on a 3 yard scamper to make it 24-6. Next up for Florida is a visit from Eastern Michigan but early word is that the Gators have replaced there defensive coordinator and will be rehiring last years coach.

ryalaman and I tried about 15 times to get our game going last night, but everytime we got to the game setup screen we'd get an error saying the connection was lost. We both reset our routers and all that, but same thing everytime. Hoping to get it in yet today, I emptied my system cache, shut off custom playbook, but if anybody has any other tricks I'd love to hear them.
Really don't want to have to sum my first user game here. Also, ryalamab, I can play now if you're around and we can get connected.
You each need to leave OD and come back. Should work
Alright, we'll try that.
We tried every trick in the book, nothing works. So weird, never had a problem like this in the game this year. Guess we're stuck with a sim.
Yeah was talking to Raj in skype.. Im sorry dude. No clue whats going on

I'm sorry, was out all day and won't be able to get it in til later. PAgamer07, if you want to transfer commish to me, I'll advance after I play. It won't be til quite a bit later though.. Sorry
Ohio State 45 - Rutgers 6 Rutgers visited Columbus to take on the 5th ranked Ohio State today and it was the young Buckeye defense flexing it's muscles, keeping Rutgers out of the end zone en route to a 45-6 victory. This game was never really in doubt, although Rutgers managed to keep it close in the first half as the Buckeye offense attempted to overcome early injuries and get going. The game was just 14-6 at the half as the Buckeyes lost their starting senior halfback Rod Smith for essentially the season on his 3rd carry. Sophomore Brionte Dunn made the most of his new starting job though, running for 127 yards and 2 TD on the day. Also lost for the game was often injured #1 receiver Devin Smith. In come Soph WR Ricquan Southward, who also made the most of his opportunity, catching 5 balls for 99 yards, including a 50 yard catch and run for a TD. The game was really broken open on the first play of the 2nd half as QB Braxton Miller kept the ball on a read option play and weaved through the Rutgers defense for an 81 yd TD to make it 21-6. After a defensive stop, then came Southward's TD, then Freshman WR Jack Darby added a TD catch of his own to put the game away for good at the end of the 3rd quarter. From there it was mop up time as the reserves came in, adding another TD to give us the final score. Youth was served for certain, and this was a good sign for a Buckeye team with a ton of questions at key positions. Now the question is, can they keep it up? Miller kept his name in the Heisman race, throwing for 187 yards and 4 total TD (with 2 INT), and added another 88 yards on the ground as well. The defense allowed only 99 yards passing and just 152 total yards as the Buckeyes dominated time of possession as well. Next, after a bye week, the Buckeyes welcome fellow in state school Kent State to the 'Shoe for another non-conference game.
Michigan kicked off their 2014 season in front of 110,000 at the Big House. Tulane was the sacrificial lamb as the Wolverines would dominate in every facet of the game. The game was actually competitive for the first quarter as after a Thomas Rawls TD run, the Green Wave drove the field but were held to a FG. Then the 2nd quarter happened.. Michigan would score 3 times in the period to pretty much end this game. First it was a Jeremy Little to true FR TE Mike Hall 7yd TD. Rawls would add another Td but then Little would get banged up and the staff decided to let him sit for the rest of the game and let former blue chip recruit Zach Allen take over the reigns.. And boy did Allen not dissapoint! On his first pass, Allen would hit Jerald Robinson in stride for a 55yd TD. New kicker Matt Wile was also impressive taking over for Ray Guy winning Brandon Gibbons as he easily booted through a 45yd FG. At the break, it was all Wolverines as they led 31-3. The second half would see Michigan basically chew the clock and run the rock. The injury bug hit though as Thomas Rawls suffered a back strain and will miss the next 4 weeks. That will give backup Justice Hayes a chance to shine. He's a faster back but doesn't have the power. He'll be a adequate replacement though. Allen would add two TD runs to end the scoring in this one.

Northwestern Takes Down Cal
Well the superiority of Coach Schreck clearly shined through in this one. Sure it was a sim, but dang I set my team up real nice, way better than ryalaman. Great to get the new regime started with a cheap win like this against a quality opponent. Really fulfilling, really.
And now we wait. 2 straight free weekends for the team while we prep for perrenial powerhouse Northern Illinois in week 5.
Lol. Good stuff. Good news is this season should fly by.
just got back, I'll do my recap against Washington State int he morning. I know I had to make a lot of depth chart changes at halftime and the damn Washington State QB threw 75 times
Badgers Adjust, Comeback & Roll Over Cougars Pullman, WA -- Badger's head coach Trey Eidson knew his offense had plenty of question marks, you lose an incredibly accurate QB in Danny O'Brien, a record setting WR in Jared Abbrederis and a speedy running back with James White, not to mention, you also lose a star-studded offensive line. Coach Eidson elected to go with redshirt freshman and former 5 star recruit Eugene Scott to start at quarterback. The dark skin athlete was highly touted and can run with the best of them, he has a cannon but the kid has a problem controlling where the ball goes. It wasn't easy for Scott as he took the field down 7-0 after the Cougars jumped on top with a touchdown run from Ricky Gavin, remember that name folks, but for a young QB, you need other people to step up and Wisconsin had plenty of that. A first down handoff to junior Melvin Gordon went up the middle 75 yards to tie it up at 7. The Cougar's air-raid tore apart Wisconsin's secondary once again, mainly using running back Ricky Gavin, later in the drive QB Connor Halliday hooked up with WR Isiah Myers for the 21 yard score to regain the lead 14-7 only 3 minutes into the ball game. On the next play, Eugene Scott threw a quick slant that Cougar DT Toni Poole snagged out of the air. The Cougars marched down to the Wisconsin 1 yard line but the Badger defense stood up the Cougars on 4 straight plays to take over possession. They didn't go far as the play calling was conservative, things settled down for Wisconsin's defense and they forced a punt late in the first quarter and return man Jenial Jean shook off two tackles in the return and ran down the sideline for the 61 yard punt return to once again tie things up, 14-14. It didn't take long for the Cougars to torch the air again and to close the 1st quarter, Halliday ran in a 4 yard touchdown on 4th down to give Washington State a 21-14 lead through the first. The 2nd quarter started just as bad as Wisconsin once again went no where on offense and couldn't complete a pass to save their life. The Badgers defense was bending but not breaking throughout the 2nd quarter. Wisconsin held on another goal line stand and forced two field goals with Washington State of 24 and 21 yards to extend their lead to 27-14 with a little over a minute left. Once again, Jenial Jean put the team on his back and returned the 106 yard kickoff to bring Wisconsin back into the game, only down 27-21. The Badger defense stood their ground on the next possession forcing the first punt of the day by the Cougars. In came senior QB Joe Brennan (not sure if he's related to Colt)... Brennan led the Badgers down the field with a solid short accurate throws and moved down the field on the Cougar defense. The Badgers only got so far before time ran out but they snagged a 46 yard field goal from Drew Meyer to only trail 27-24 at the half. Wisconsin opened the second half with the ball and again Brennan led a beautiful drive down the field. The Badgers offense had a mix with running back's Melvin Lewis & Vonte Jackson and also sprinkled in with QB Eugene Scott on some read option stuff. The three headed ground game and the accurate arm of Brennan proved to be the flip of the switch for the Badger offense. Wisconsin went on an 11 play drive that ate up over 3 minutes of the 3rd quarter and capped off the drive with a 9 yard run by Vonte Jackson to snag the lead for the first time 28-27. As coach Eidson moved some linebackers around for the 2nd half, the Cougar's offense began to struggle to move the ball. The Badger corners were all over the place and intercepted QB Connor Halliday on the first pass of the drive on two consecutive possessions. Between those possessions however were Badger touchdowns, one on a 50 yard touchdown from Joe Brennan to Isaiah Williams, the ball was thrown late and Williams plain and simple vertically out jumped the corner and snagged the ball at the 5 yard line and ran in for the touchdown to lead 35-27, then RB Melvin Gordon busted off another run up the middle for the 12 yard score to lead 42-27. It didn't take long before Wisconsin got the ball back and Gordon struck again, this time as the Badgers approached midfield, Gordon got to the second level and out ran the Cougar defense to get his 3rd touchdown of the day as in less then 2 minutes, Wisconsin had put 21 points on the board to lead 49-27 after the huge 28 point 3rd quarter. After the Badgers forced another punt, Wisconsin put this one to bed when freshman QB Eugene Scott trotted back on the field and kept a read option that went good for 39 yards and a touchdown, the first of his collegiate career. Washington State scored on another Ricky Gavin touchdown later in the quarter. Gavin also led the team with 15 receptions. The Cougars recovered the onside kick after Wisconsin played 10 minutes of soccer with the ball and the Cougars scored once more on a 4 yard pass from Connor Halliday to Dominique Williams. The Badgers recovered the next onside kick and later on added a Drew Meyer field goal, Wisconsin forced a turnover on downs for Washington State and knee'd to victory 62-41. Few things, Eugene Scott will be good eventually, he can run like hell but his accuracy scares the hell out of me, especially on the road like this game. I like the offense that I ran in the 2nd half, two running back's and sprinkle in Scott with some read option & wildcat stuff. So all my user games this year, prepare for that, just a heads up. My defense is sketchy as hell, I had to move some of my linebackers around and it worked much better in the 2nd half. I don't know how the Washington State QB's arm didn't fall off, at half he had around 50 attempts and ended the game with 75 throws......christ o mighty Notable Player StatsQB Joe Brennan: 10/15, 125 Yards, TDHB Melvin Gordon: 15 Att, 210 Yards, 3 TDWR Isaiah Williams: 7 Rec, 99 Yards, TDCB Devin Gaulden: 8 Tackles, 2 INTCB Jenial Jean: 7 Tackles, INT, 61 Yard Punt Return, 104 Yard Kick Return QB Connor Halliday: 52/75, 547 Yards, TD, 3 INTHB Ricky Galvin: 15 Att, 58 Yards, 2 TD (15 Rec, 98 Yards)WR Dominique Williams: 10 Rec, 114 Yards, TDWR Isiah Myers: 12 Rec, 129 YardsCB Tracy CLark: 5 Tackles, FF
