    The inaugural game for the Alameda Golden Bears proved to be a memorable one. A slow build to a crazy end will see this away opener versus the UCLA Bruins remembered for a long, long time.

    The game started out very well for the Bears, when a punishing ground game and solid defense saw Alameda move out to a 28-7 lead in the 3rd quarter.

    Cue the comeback. UCLA threw two nearly identical monster passes, followed by two onside kick recoveries, to bring the score to 31-26. Luckily Alameda was finally able to recover the third onside kick, and that's how the game ended.

    Offensive Player of the Game: HB D. Foreman - 31 Att, 159 yards, 5.1 AVG

    Defensive Player of the Game: RE M. Thompson - 4 Tack, 1 TFL, 1 Sack


    RK's Notes: Glad to see that UCLA put up a fight in the end, makes me more confident in using sliders to adjust AA. Controlling the RE with player lock was a lot of fun.

    Wow Raz! I saw the score and thought this one would've played out in an entirely different fashion. Nice writeup, and even better win. Good luck against North Texas.

    The Golden Bears survived their home opener as they hosted the North Texas Mean Green. This one seemed under control most of the game, but North Texas came back in the late 3rd and early 4th quarter to make it a game. Luckily, the onside kick was a failure, and Alameda was able to run out the clock and win a close one.

    Next week is a huge game for the Golden Bears as they visit Gonzaga to take on the Bulldogs and head coach Archie Griffin.

    We dropped a tough one tonight as the Golden Bears visited the Gonzaga Bulldogs. It was a close game, but Gonzaga found a way to solve the Alameda running game in the end. Check out AG's blog for the victor's recount.

    The Alameda Golden Bears rebounded on the road after a tough loss to Gonzaga, defeating the Air Force Falcons 42-13.

    The ground game was dominant as the Alameda backfield combined for 338 yards and 5 touchdowns. Leading the way was Player of the Game D. Foreman who rushed for 144, caught for 45 and scored 3 of his teams' touchdowns.

    I'd love to show videos, but I haven't been able to upload for a couple of days now.

    Nice win Raz. To upload more videos, you will unfortunately have to delete old ones off of EASportsWorld to manually free up the slots. After this is finished, uploads should work with no problem. Hope that helps!

    *EDIT* Well, I just wandered up to the Locker Room forum and read more into your problem. I honestly have no suggestions. Sorry man! Hope you get it sorted out.

    Alameda had a great game this week, defeating MWC opponent St. Edwards by a score of 24-7.

    A strong ground game and a solid defense were the keys yet again, as the Bears ran for 170 and had 15 TFLs and 8 sacks.

    In the bad news department, injury-prone HB Foreman finally stayed down and is out for 3 weeks. Luckily Coach RK has had to play backup Miller many times in the past and is confident he can handle the load.

    Next up is a date with the Horned Frogs of TCU.
