    In a barnburner Washington downs Cal 10-7!

    Can't wait to see Fuzzy's game recap, it was a defensive grinder. It's gonna take ole California a season or two before we really start taking off.

    I've never been one to complain about how the game is playing, but we really need to look at getting a solid slider set..... I thew 7 ints, which is something I've never done in life it was like oregon's dbs were superman! I consistently had WR's open or behind their corner yet they would just jump up and grab the ball outta no where.... Also felt like the game is playing too fast (maybe I'm just used to the slower speed my slider set in offline calls for) what do u guys think about taking it down to slow?

    On a side note: my d is freakish! A lot of speed with this groups,they like to hit as well! I think we got Darrin Thomas pregnant lol! We held probably the most explosive offense in the nation to just 179 yards of total offense (125 rushing, 54 passing). This shoulda been a win for us but those damn super db's kinda ruined it for me....

    What is the speed threshold at right now? It feels like my fastest guy on the team (Kearse with 96 speed) gets no separation on slower players. Maybe you can trying bumping it down to 20-30; it's 20 in my league. I like it there because once you break a big run, you don't have DL/LBs catching your HB down the field.

    On this game passing the ball is extremely difficult on the default settings, more so than in past years. Early on in my other dynasties it was very common to see my guy throw four picks a game against the CPU/USER. If you have lowered the speed settings to the point where you have no fear of throwing picks I almost want to say shame on you, but I am new so I won't. Once you get use to it, you can throw the ball just fine. Just don't be one who is scared to throw and run it every down.

    How does lowering the speed threshold to 20 affect DBs' ability to make plays in the secondary?

    We'll most likely be sticking with base Heisman for season one. During the off-season, people can help me adjust the sliders. Only the kicking sliders have been touched.

    Idk if lowering he speed threshold effects the db's.... every slider set I've used (which were posted in articles on operationsports.com) have low speed thresholds and it doesnt help or hurt in my opinion.... there are games when my passing game is inept and also games where my qb's put up huge number, its actually very balanced and more emphasis has to be placed on making the right read..... we have to keep in mind the speed threshold doesn't just effect offensive players.....

    I havent experienced too much conflict. Yes ive thrown some INTs too but my defense is playing just as i imagined and my WRs are getting open.
    I feel like its a little different then the OC (which Ive enjoyed gameplay a lot) but my players are not as good here so i accepted that.

    im fine with leaving it or tweaking.
    I already beat USC! i cant let you guys face an easier trojan team!

    Maybe I just need to get used to playing with sliders again, plus playing nba 2k all the time probably made me a lil rusty lol

    Actually, scratch that. My night is cleared because I need to work on a paper. I'll welcome a distraction though whenever we advance tonight, so get at me.

    Waiting on: gowazzucougs and CoachRedd to play their CPU games, the remaining user game is being played now. IrishBearcat

    The user game is in the 4th, so you could advance here shortly. Let me know what time works for you.
