    @ gowazzucougs

    When can you play? I got class and stuff all day, and I might go out Friday night, so my best times are:
    Friday: Not too likely, but I may be on around 11 pm ET
    Saturday: around noon ET to 3 p.m.
    Sunday: name a time, I can probably do it

    I was thinking Sunday. After playing 2 user games last night I was hoping to avoid playing tonight if at all possible, and Saturday is my wife's birthday, so I want to keep the playing to a minimal. On Sunday I want watch the Daytona 500, but I would be free any time after that? What does your Sunday late afternoon look like?

    My Sunday will probably consist of sitting in the sun all day, so a good time would be any time after 6 pm ET.

    Last Second FG Lifts Hokies Past Missouri
    Hokies: 0 3 7 3 13
    Missouri: 0 3 0 7 10

    250 - 249.

    That's the total offense mustered up by each team, and it is a perfect example of how closely fought this game was. But while Missouri might have outgained the Hokies, Virginia Tech was the one that wound up on top on the score board in Week 4 of the 2014 campaign.

    Two main factors contributed to the Hokies success over the Tigers. The first was their ability to rush the ball. Virginia Tech ran the ball on 35 of their 49 plays, and did so for a total of 167 yards. Morris was the main recepient of those handoffs, as he rushed for 163 yards on 23 carries and had the only Hokie TD of the ball game.

    The other main factor was possession. VT was able to win the turnover battle 3-1. The only Hokie turnover, a fumble by Tremblay not two steps after he had intercepted a Franklin pass. Missouri on the other hand was struggling to hold on to the football, fumbling it 3 times and losing two of them.

    Virginia Tech will invite Notre Dame into Blacksburg next weekend in what will almost assuredly be a battle of Top 15 teams. Notre Dame is 2-1 on the season, and takes on FCS SE this week in South Bend.

    But this is the League of Champions. Gotta act like a champion if you're going to be one. :p

    I'm not going to be a champion in Night Owls as long as Boda and Mexi are beating the hell out of me in the Big Ten, so all I can do is talk shit to everyone and accuse people of using magic haha

    After 3 user games in a row, I finally get a CPU game.

    2-1 vs. users - not bad at all.

    20 total points allowed in my wins in those games. Now I just have to ratchet up my offense a bit.
