    It's not banned so I don't see why not. I fucking HATED playing against UofCWildcat 's 3-3-5. I couldn't run against it (even though I should be able to) and it always seemed to cover 95% of the field while passing.

    That's the reason I've always been against it.

    Didn't someone have an issue with you and how you played it?

    It was the "jokering" that caused the issue. I don't remember if we outlawed the defense tho.

    Yeah. It wasn't outlawed but i felt like Jello got upset and Nautica called it cheese. Sicne Nautica is gone and fuck Jello, i was just wondering. It gets speed on the field that i want to counter Jello's offense.

    Since I think you've only ever beaten me with the 3-3-5 I'm TOTALLY against it!

    I mad a comment in game because of the jokering. The defense is fine by me. Hell I lost my d-line so I may look at it.

    It's great. I love the speed. Since i blitz a lot, i get hybrid SS (aka Hard Hitters) up close to the line and the come off the edge. Plus it contained Jello a bit.

    Haha yeah :) I'll look past you

    This defense is easily the nemesis of the spread option offense in this game. I've noted numerous times when playing the CPU that uses it, it's a complete waste of time. It's difficult to run the ball, they cover 95% of the field like Jello said. I think it's overly effective against the spread, but I'm not sure about other offensive schemes. I don't want to say I'm against someone using it.........

    I guess I'm indifferent. I'd prefer to see it as a nickel / complimentary defensive package rather than something being used every snap, but that's just me.

    I mix up my 3-3-5. There are 5 formations and i use 4 all game. I even use Nickle if there are 4+ WRs on the field. So it's not like i sit in the Stack all day

    Someone that's played against your 3-3-5 asked me why you never switch up your defense and that "mixing it up" doesn't just apply to offense, but defense as well. I told him that it probably just looks the same since it's essentially the same personnel whether your in your base defense or nickle.

    Yeah. I know. Back then i did only use the Stack and the Okie occasionally with Nickle and such. Now i've adapted and gotten better at it with all the different formations (except Across)
