    We have finally made it to bowl season, 2017! Here are the matchups and the bowls that everyone is in. Congratulations to cyhiphopp and Glen Cieske on winning their respective conferences and making the national title game. That matchup is the only user vs. user game for the week, so let's try to get through this one quickly and move on to the offseason!


    Congratulations to Wisconsin HB Cory Clement on his Heisman victory! All 5 of our Heisman winners so far have been from different teams, I think that's pretty cool. He also makes the fourth running back to win the award in CL this launch

    So assuming we all have our games played within the next 36 hours, I'm thinking we should start off-season Thursday night around 10:30 p.m. eastern. Does anyone have any objections to that time?

    It takes some getting used to going from 10 in The Pride to 5 here. You usually have to build up momentum by completing high percentage passes early. Then you can open it up later.

    If you start out with a few incompletions of picks it's hard to get a rhythm back. Case in point, the SEC title game. We actually played a whole half of a game that we lost connection. Both of us were doing well on offense in that one. In the official game we both got off to a bad start and passed pretty poorly (about 40% each).

    Every off season, we all hop on AOL Instant Messenger and discuss the season, recruiting, real life college football, etc. It's also a great way for the commissioner to know when to advance, as we can all easily communicate when we are ready. It's a good time, one of my favorite parts of being in Chompions. Obviously it's not mandatory, but it would be cool to have as many of us in there. If you don't have an AIM account, it's fairly easy to set up. If you have any trouble setting it up, I'd be more than happy to help you.

    Just thought I'd let you know!

    I might not be available Thursday until late. I might have to just jump on my phone and do what I can.

    For sure. If you don't trust doing it on the phone, I'm sure Spayer or Jandy or I could use your account from our PS3s.

    FYI,
    Championship is scheduled for 9 CST tonight.


    If anyone is available, tonight after that game would be much better for me to do the off-season, but it's what works for everyone of course.

    Anyone open to completely overhauling the sliders for next season. Might create a fresher experience.

    Not sure about a complete rehaul. But I'd be open to some fine tuning.

    What do you mean?

    As for sliders here are my opinions

    - way too easy to run right now
    - user pass game could use tweaking whether it's better blocking or accuracy
    - CPU needs to be better at running and likely both blocking. Way too many sacks on the leaderboards among users
