    Just tossing this out there. After looking at the week 1 scores, only 2 teams didn't hang 40+ in their games. Perhaps going down to 7 would be a good idea.

    Thoughts?

    I don't know if you counted mine as a 40+ game or not but I only scored 30. I got the disc read error after the game and had to sim it, that's how I got over 40.

    some of those games were against teams that arent very good... if the conference games start to get out of hand... maybe something should be changed.... but for now i like 8 minutes quarters, it allows you to make mistakes and still have time to come back...

    This is where my opinion differs. Maybe it's just me, but I get all the game scores emailed to my phone. And when looking at majority of them as well as reading game summaries between this league and the experience, it always seems that the CPU can hold it's own until half time. But then in the second half, they get blown away. My theory is if the game was shorter, the cpu might hold up better. I have no proof it would work, but I'm just tossing it out there as an idea.

    i was speaking about myself than others, i know i usually start off terrible but make adjustments and come back, where others may start off strong and struggle late...

    Same with me. Last night Clemson kept doing the same passing plays over and over on me in the 1st half. A stupid dump off to a WR or RB out in the flat. I just made adjustments and then started dominating them.

    8 is all good with me. I'm not a very high scorer. My games are usually in the low 30's

    I like 8 minute quarters as well. If you get into shoot outs, it won't matter if you have 7 minute quarters of 8 minute quarters. With the accelerated clock when I run the ball efficiently, I sometimes have games where the CPU and I only have around 100 plays.
