Everyone has a CPU game, good luck!
stiff bon air
Wow, recruiting is going to be tough. My highest rating is a C, the majority of ratings are D. :\
Yeah I was sweating through that too as I was going through the recruits...It's gonna be a grinder for sure...
Sorry about last night fellas, internet was having some trouble and had classes this morning.
I'll be home and join up asap. Are we (hopefully!) balling on Heisman?
Yes, it is on Heisman. I bumped the recruiting down to AA tho, the CPU doesn't need the edge in both facets!
Toledo Upsets Arizona in Embarrassing Fashion
Toledo's offense looked awful in this game. But Arizona's could have been worse. Arizona had 347 yards, but turned the ball over 5 times, and Toledo's defense scored 2 times. Toledo's 2 defensive TDs came off 91 and 99 yard interception returns, which gave them a 14-6 lead. A Nick Foles led to a late Toledo TD with 0:06 left in the half to go up 21-6. Toledo's offense got moving a little better in the 2nd half, but they need to hope the passing game can open up a bit more. MLB Dan Molls was expected to be Toledo's best defensive player this year and did not disappoint with 12 tackles, 2 INTs, and a TD. Toledo gets a test with Ohio State next week.
Terrance Owens (QB)- 10-27 for 145 yards, 2 TD, 3 INT
Adonis Thomas (HB)- 11 carries for 55 yards
Eric Page (WR)- 2 receptions for 50 yards, 2 TD
Dan Molls (MLB)- 12 tackles, TFL, PD, 2 INT, TD
Terrell Anderson (OLB)- 4 tackles, TFL, 2 PD, 2 INT, TD
Good, and we rolled with AA in LV for recruiting and it was pretty challenging IMO.
I still think the CPU should get all the help it can..
I'd be okay with Heisman recruiting. I prefer difficulty, but I think AA recruiting gets the job done in terms of being difficult ENOUGH.
I only read that part.. haha
fuzzyl0gic Kasper just got back in town to see you guys rebooted. Can I get in as Bowling Green? Done with work for the rest of the '12 cycle.
Yep, I or fuzzyl0gic will get you invited tonight soon. Fuzzy do I have commish atm?
Bobcats Scratch Out A Win Against The Cougars
The Bobcats created four turnovers and willed themselves to a 31-24 victory over the pass happy BYU Cougars in front of 24,000 fans at Peden Stadium. BYU drove the ball down to the 20 yard line on the first drive only to have Ohio's CB Omar Leftwich make a beautiful one handed interception in the back of the end zone. After a Bobcat reception and fumble BYU took over again and QB Jake Heaps connected with M. Jacobson on a 28 yard strike to go up 7-0. The Bobcat's got things going next and QB Phil Bates found WR Bakari Bussey for a 9 yard score making it a 7 all. By halftime the Cougars went up by a field goal to make it 17-10 BYU.
In the second half Ohio committed a costly INT on the opening drive of the 3rd qtr which lead to another BYU scoring drive making the contest 24-14 with BYU seemingly holding all the momentum. But the Bobcats wouldn't quit. The halftime adjustments kicked in, the running game began to open up and the BYU just couldn't keep from making costly mistakes and turnovers. Ohio went on a 17-0 run stealing the momentum back and the lead for good with 5:41 in the 4th qtr.
After the game Coach PK Kellum said, "BYU put up a huge challenge, we made some adjustments and our kids just kept on fighting...This was a great win for our program!"
GAME NOTES:QB Phil Yates 16/23 for 206 (2) tds -1 int RB Donte Harden 24/107 (2) PLAYER OF THE GAME *** No Penalties***
Oh god I have Alabama. Ouch.
That's just not right!!! Good luck man...
TURNOVERS BIG REASON FOR WIN OVER INDIANA
Ball State 27
The opening game for Coach BP wasn't a pretty one, but he has to be proud of the number of turnovers they got. Following a Indiana FG on their first drive, Ball State fans got to see one of the most electrifying returns in BSU History, a 99 yard TD return by Briggs Orsbon. With the TD, State led 7-3. Their lead was short-lived when Indiana drove down the field with their stupid and annoying hurry-up offense in less than 2 minutes. Because of a missed assignment, Indiana's Wright-Baker was able to hook up with WR Wilson for a 43 yard bomb. Indiana pulled ahead 10-7. On Ball State's next drive, following a good return by Orsbon, they were able to tack 3 on to tie it at 10-10. On the ensuing drive, CB Baker was able to swat the ball away on an option pitch and recover it for a 49 yard returned fumble, that gave BSU a 17-10 lead. Indiana was able to move the ball down the field with ease again to kick a FG as time expired in the 1st half to cut the lead to 17-13.
The 3rd quarter was a lot of back and forth. Both teams traded INTs and fumbles as neither team could really capitalize on their opponent's mistakes. BSU was able to get close enough to kick a FG late in the 3rd, to extend their lead to 7, 20-13. Indiana wasn't quitting as they intercepted Cardinals QB Wenning and had no trouble getting it into the redzone. The Ball State defense stepped up and forced a FG. Late in the 4th quarter, Ball State was able to end another Indiana drive short as they intercepted a Wright-Baker pass. They came up short and were tackled at the 1 yard line. RB Williams was able to take it up the gut for a 1 yard TD. With time running out Indiana once again aired it out with their hurry up and was able to get down the field and score in just over a minute - they also went for 2 and converted. With Ball State leading 27-24, Indiana tried for the onside and failed. Ball St was able to run out the clock and get their first win of the BP era of Cardinal football.
Depth Shines vs Army, Huskies Win 27-14
Northern Illinois got big games from their backup RB and HB after the starters were both knocked out in the first quarter. Both seniors, QB Chandler Harnish and RB Jasmin Hopkins each took a turn leaving the Dekalb home crowd breathless after both were knocked out with injuries. Fifth year senior RB Cameron Bell stepped up in a big time way, trampling the Army defense to the tune of 193 yards and 2 scores on 22 attempts. The 6'2 242 lb running back was happy to make an impact to open the season.
"This is one of the best days of my life. Getting a chance to come out and do work for my brothers that I have been with for so many years- this is what it's all about," stated Bell, a product of Texas powerhouse Southlake Carroll.
Sophomore QB Jordan Lynch also played well for being thrown into the fire, going 10-19 for 160 yards and a TD, while also tossing one INT. Lynch also had a couple nice runs out of the read option.
"Jordan played pretty well for us all things considered," stated Coach Kasper. "He has a very bright future and is learning from one of the best mentors in the country."
Senior receiver Willie Clark paced the offense, snagging 4 balls for 40 yards to constantly move the chains. Junior Martel Moore was able to get behind the defense for a 61 score and also catching another ball for 6 yards.
The defense also played well, forcing 3 turnovers and limiting the Army triple option attack to 73 yards rushing.
NIU will look to keep the early momentum going from the first game as they take on as they travel to Lawrence, Kansas to take on the Jayhawks. Harnish and Hopkins are both expected to be practicing all week and play come Saturday.

Redhawks Fall Short:
Miami University were big underdogs coming into #23 Mizzou but that did not stop them from putting up a great fight. Mizzou's no huddle offense was too much for the Redhawks. The fast paced, quick hike and throw just absolutely murdered them all day. There were no time for subs or to even breath. In the first quarter and the beginning of the second the Tigers gashed Miami for 14 points. The Tiger defense ripped through Miami's OL getting to the QB multiple times forcing 5 total interceptions in the first half. Finally Miami got a break but it did not come without incidence. Miami QB Zac Dysert found an open TE Kendrick Bruton over the middle but Tiger MLB Will Ebner picked it off. Before being able to even run with the ball LG Julian Green popped the ball loose for Burton to scoop it up and score the 31 yard TD. Miami was able to score again before the half with a 62 yard TD pass to TE Burton but Mizzou would then score 13 more points ending the half up 27-14.
The Redhawk offense had to get something going and their defense had to pick it up or they were going to get blown out. The 3rd Quarter was all Miami. Mizzou was caught in a blitz and could not stop the screen to RB Danny Green for an easy 29 yard TD pass. A few minutes later Redhawk FS Pat Winkel lit up RB Devion Moore jarring the ball loose giving CB Cornelius a 26 yard scoop and score. The momentum was on Miami's side going into the 4th winning 28-27. Miami would yet again score quickly but this time from the leg of Mason Krysinski. Mizzou would answer right back with a 52 yard score giving them the lead 34-31. The Redhawks marched right down the field to kick the game tying FG to send it to OT.
To start the OT off Mizzou quickly scored a TD. Then on a 4th and 2 on the 2 yard line Miami decided to run a FB dive which was blown before the ball was even hiked. The ball would be turnover on downs and the game would go to Mizzou. It was a valiant effort but the 5 early interceptions cost Miami the game. Next week is a bye but the Redhawks look to bounce back in week 3 against the Mighty Gophers of Minnesota.
FINAL SCORE: 41-34 OT
Broncos come up short in their comeback against the Wolverines. After a shoot out in the 1st half with both teams scoring 31 points each, only 17 points were scored int he 2nd half. Western Michigan's QB Alex Carder threw for an amazing, and new school record, 624 yards after throwing the ball 58 times, completing 35 passes. He had 4 touchdowns, but also 4 turnovers. 2 fumbles off of sacks, and 2 interceptions thrown. The team was still happy with his performance on the road against this team that had a lot more talent than the Broncos. In the 2nd half, after a long run by Denard Robinson, he was knocked out at the 3 yard line hurting his shoulder and was out for the game. The Broncos figured that was going to be the turning point of the game but unfortunately for them, they couldn't get over the hump and Devin Gardner did just enough to keep the Wolverines ahead.
Just IrishBearcat and stiff bon air left with games.
Temple Runs Over Western Kentucky Bernard Pierce and Matt Brown both had big days running the ball for Temple; they each went over 100 yards and 3 TDs combined. Temple had a 14-0 lead at the half, with the rushing attack moving the chains on both drives. Mike Geradi managed the game, completing 9/17 124 yds 1 TD and 0 INTs. Western Kentucky's HB had a big run on the opening play of the second half to finally get them on the score board, but it wasn't enough. The Owls would put up two Matt Brown rushing TDs in the third, then a short yardage Brandon Pierce TD in the fourth to seal up the game 35-7. The Owls will face Akron next week.
and me I will be playing this afternoon
You don't count, you're always last.
