    The Experience

    We're in bowl week now. There's 1 user game as either Michigan or Maryland will be the first user national champ.

    At least it's a user vs user instead of a near guaranteed user win vs CPU.

    True, but I think it's the wrong user v. user, but of course there's nothing that can be done about that so there's no reason to get mad about it. As we saw frequently during last release that's just the (dumb) perk of not being able to win your division.

    I'm not sure I follow but I won't dig if it riles you up.

    It doesn't.

    A 2 loss Maryland team is going to the NCG over a 1 loss team (1 of only 2 1 loss teams in the country) whose only loss is to the #1 team in the country. The reason they're going is because 1. they didn't win their division so they didn't have to play a CCG and 2. Illinois' only loss came last week while Maryland's 2 losses came earlier in the season. 1 of Maryland's losses was to Michigan as well, but their other loss was to someone ranked lower (I don't know who).

    As for the "perk of not being able to win your division" remark, at least 3 times last release we saw this happen. There were 3 very highly ranked user teams in a conference. 2 which were playing in the CCG and 1 which wasn't. While the 2 division champs got to play for the conference title (with the winner going to the NCG), the team that couldn't even win their division was actually the only team of the 3 that was guaranteed a shot in the NCG since they'd move ahead of the loser of the CCG. That's a pretty sweet deal if you ask me.

    In other words. It is EA logic

    We've already gotten a few bowl games in. The only ones left are Hova, abolishthefed, dakota7, Fmode11 (who's on AP), and bigrice25 v. NeuroticTruth .

    If we're able to get those done tomorrow we could start knocking out some of the offseason tasks before we finish them up Sunday morning.

    Ugh... Two games played last night and my bowl game sucked. The NW defense is butter and anytime I started to come back, Zack Oliver got strip sacked

    I think they got it right once last year. Didn't I lose to you in the CCG but still get to play in the NCG?

    Yeah. In our 3rd to final season we played 3 times with you beating me in the regular season and then me beating you in the CCG/NCG

    But I should say that for this season I'd be lying if I said I'm not relieved to not be playing Michigan in the NCG. Obviously the best case scenario would've been to win the CCG, but with the loss, I'm definitely relieved to not have to play that juggernaut again. My only goal this year is to get my 6th star so I can start recruiting in earnest. If I were in the NCG against Michigan I'd probably get destroyed like I did in the CCG and finish outside of the top 5 (thus not getting my 6th star). By getting to play a CPU team (whom I have to admit I was scared would also throttle me since they're the best team in the country) I had a much better chance of remaining in the top 5.

    If you would have won Maryland still would have got in NCG?

    That's what he's saying. No matter what, Maryland was going to the NCG with 2 losses and jello losing one game got shut out. Which is bullshit

    If we finish bowl season tonight before I get home from work, one of you can advance but do not go past end of season so I can grab stats. Or one of you do it for me.

    Yes and it would've made more sense since they'd have the same record as Michigan rather than a worse one than Illinois.

    This year is different than the scenarios from last season because Alabama had 1 loss and was ranked 3rd so if they won their CCG than Bama was in and Maryland out. It took Bama losing for Maryland to get a shot.

    Last release there were 3 seasons where it didn't matter what happened in other CCGs, the user division loser was guaranteed a shot since they didn't have an equivalent of Bama to keep them out.

    I looked at that and comparing you and Maryland the game got it right. Yes you beat them, but Maryland lost to #1 and #5. However you lost to #1 and Wisconsin who was unranked during CCG week and just sneaked into the top 25 this week. Your "bad loss" to Wisconsin trumps Rice's head to head loss to you.

    You can blame dakota7 's poor ranking for you missing out.
