    If things fall the right way, we will see. That's why they play the games.

    Hey Twist, I'm a Steelers fan so I'd rather play Monday than tonight unless you want to go late. How about 8 PM Monday EST?

    Yeah I have 2 offseasons tonight so Monday will be cool. I can also play late tonight as well though. That might be even better if you have time tonight after the Steelers game!

    Okay--if I'm not feeling too exhausted after the Steelers game and assuming it doesn't run too late, I might pop on to see if you're ready. Otherwise, we'll get it in Monday.

    I like your scenerio, except I am going to change the outcome of the ACCCG. I have UNC winning it and allowing Penn State to back into the BCS title game....

    boys....I hate to be the one to break the news to you guys but....there is no easter bunny, no toothfairy, Santa Clause doesn't not exsit and neither of you will make it to the BCS Championship.

    Texas will win the Big XII Championship and make it to the game

    User game was played last night and most of the CPU games are done. I think Nebraska is the only remaining game. Get that played before this evening so I can advance when I get home from work/gym.

    Twist actually killed everyone's hope by beating UNC last night. With that win, I find it highly unlikely that anyone could leap the winner of the Big 12 title game.

    At least we will have another user vs user BCS title game. I always hate to see the title handed to someone by playing the cpu. With that said may I make a suggestion for next seasonion: 4 user game minimum .....

    Yeah I will probably go with 4 user games next season. This season was kind of a transition year as we had a lot of new members. For season 4 we will go back to 4 user games.

    I was halfway through a long recap of the OU-UNC game when my work computer blue-screened; we have an older version of IE and I just don't think it handles EA's Dynasty site too well. So maybe I'll get it done yet or perhaps Twist will get a good one in, but we had a fun game where I threw everything I could think of at him but unfortunately it doesn't look like there will be much BCS suspense. It's OSU versus the Big XII winner.

    Heck vandy, to keep that tight with a less talented squad is a great showing, no shame in that loss.

    OU: 31 UNC: 24

    Great game plan formulated by Coach Vandy's staff to prepare for the Sooner attack. Here is the stats of the game and if you go by the stats, then it should have been a blowout by the Tar Heels.
    [​IMG]

    The Tar Heels controlled the football, capped off with a Matt Walker 1 yard rush to make it 7-0. The Sooners had it 2 plays before Landry Jones found Devin Bishop behind the Tar Heel defenders for an 86 yard strike to tie it at 7-7. The Heels mounted a long drive again against the tired Sooner D and took the lead on a Bernard 3 yard TD rush. On the ensuing KO, Brennan Clay (Coach Brave's most favorite non Buckeye) took the ball back to the house for an 86 yard KO return TD.

    Clay's play gave the Sooners some momentum and they added 10 points to go into the locker room up 24-14 and possession of the ball opening the second half. Coach Vandy lured the Sooners into a false sense of security by dangling single coverage on Sheldon McClain and at the last second, the DB made a huge over the shoulder int to save a td and give the ball back to the Tar Heels.

    After getting the ball back from the Heels, Jermie Calhoun took over. His 36 yard td run set the lead to 31-14. Coach Vandy and the Heels mounted a furious comeback but just fell short.

    Great game Vandy and look forward to playing you again sometime. PS: For a large monetary gift, I can tell you all the weaknesses I know about that scoundrel of a Seminole Coach!) LOL

    Key players:
    Landry Jones: 7/12 157 yards 2 tds 1 int
    Jermie Calhoun 16 att 109 yards 1 td
    Brennan Clay 2 rets 51 yards avg 1 td,
