    Sorry to Vandermint since UNC ended up losing the sim. As for this week, just 1 user game this week as rivals Stanford and Notre Dame meet. Ceewo and SodaAddict please schedule the game. Also, Dru/Florida State is on AP this week. Before Dru took over FSU I advised him he would be placed on auto for this week. I already had my entire recruiting board scheduled for that game and I would not have tried that against a user, especially Dru.

    Lets try to advance in 48 hours, so Thursday night. If the user game needs an extra day I'll wait till Friday but make sure to get the CPU games in.

    Take a look at those Big 10 rankings. Hopefully we don't just beat up on each other, it would be nice to make it 3 years in a row the Big 10 represents the BCS title game. If anyone does make it out undefeated it will be well deserved.....

    Hmm, Friday might be the best then.. I have a bowling league tonight that starts at 9 eastern... but I could play after that... I will get home at about 10:30 or 11, so if you are still available then we could play.

    Otherwise, Friday at 6 would probably be best.

    Yeah Big 10 put a beatdown on Big 12 in week 3. OSU beat Texas and Minnesota beat Oklahoma.

    In other news, looks like a Thursday advance is likely so get those CPU games played. I do not wait more than 48 hours on CPU games unless there are dire circumstances.

    Or he might have a Dr. Pepper sugar rush and he'll be bouncing around the room.

    Just saying that people have different choices in beverages. I personally prefer beer but judging by his name he might be more of a cola fan. :)

    Twist, Dru or Perry are one of you gonna be available around 7:30 PM EST on Friday? If so I can pass commish rights to one of you for the advance. I'm likely going to be back late on Friday since I have some plans that night.

    Hey Ceewo, I get off work at 6, so I should be on at about 6:15. My girlfriend is at my place, so it's possible that she will get on to play rock band or super meat boy before I get off. Just wanted to let you know in case you try to send an invite and don't get a response or something.

    Well I am officially pretty frustrated.

    After two missed attempts at trying to play my user game with Ceewo... I just played my game against the auto-piloted Notre Dame and lost 39-78.

    Here's some stats for you:
    1. Notre Dame had two fumble recoveries for touchdowns
    2. Dayne Crist went 7 for 8, Raymond Cotton went 15 for 21, and Andrew Hendrix went 1 for 1 for a touchdown to combine for 23/30, 425 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 0 INT
    3. Notre Dame receivers had 0 drops.
    4. Notre Dame running backs Cierre Wood and Jonas Gray combined for 25 attempts, 142 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 8 official broken tackles (there were many, many more).
    5. Notre Dame kicker Nick Tausch went 5 for 5, with 2 kicks of over 50 yards, one from 59.
    6. Stanford QB Josh Nunes went 30 for 59 after starting 7 for 7 (23 for 52 after the start) for 642 yards, 3 TD's and 5 Interceptions.
    7. Of the five interceptions, at least two were off balls that were knocked off target due to the QB getting hit, and 1 was off of a pass that was caught by a Stanford receiver in the end zone, then somehow dropped and caught by a ND player for the interception.
    8. Stanford receivers were only credited for 1 drop, but actually had a total of 6 (none counted as drops) that hit receivers directly in the hands only to fall incomplete.
    9. These stats do nothing to describe how full of crap that whole game was.

    Check out the videos from the game on the Dynasty Wire.

    That interception in the endzone especially sucked. I've seen the CPU pick off a few off fly patterns when the DB is behind the WR and it just bounces off his hands into the DB's but never one quite like that.

    My appologies for the missed game times Soda. I was out of town for work and we did not get back into town when we were supposed to. I had no way of getting on here to let you know. Sorry the cpu went into god mode on you.

    Hopefully robo QB goes away now that sliders are back to AA default for week 5. I didn't see much problems in my first game against the CPU, but I'll continue to monitor over the next few weeks.
