    So, for those of you who have been in my dynasty since I first launched it on EA's forums in 2009 (Cam, Roy, Derek, Jared, Tom, Steve), I was going through our 105 pages of posts and thought it would be fun to set up a general conversation page so we can talk about anything and everything like we used to on those forums. You can use it for scheduling games or talking smack or talking about your games or whatever you want. Have fun with it.

    Man, in practice games, I was tearing it up with Dayne Crist.....In my dynasty game, he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn and then got a concussion.....What's that all about? Still blew out Texas State thanks to his back up running the option well after his concussion but what the heck.

    I'm a 100% with you bro. I went to practice and lab'ed it up and thought ok I got this. Played my game and things just werent the same. Plays that I had ran against man and zone showed no chances of positive yardage or even a completion... Oh well at least we can advance this year.

    Are any of you guys big fans of one of the teams with pro combat uni's that came from amazon. Think it's Army, Michigan State, Georgia, and a couple more I'm not sure. If your a fan you will know.

    I really really struggle to run the ball out of the shotgun with my RB. Against users it isn't as bad, but against the cpu, a linebacker or even a safety gets through every single time. Play action passes are a lot more effective, so I can use that to my advantage if I ever get a running game going.

    Running against the blitz is terrible at times. But then again, my team is not the greatest.

    I'm not a fan of those teams but I am a fan of those jerseys......but unfortunately I didn't get the stupid code to unlock them......BS...just because I bought the game from somewhere, I don't get them? I bought the damn game still! The thing that is really pissing me off is that one of the worst teams on the game and whom is probably on TV less than nearly every team (Western Kentucky) has several different jerseys to choose from, yet KU has a special jersey every year for the last 3 years against Mizzou and EA has only added the white helmets from two years ago to the game. They didn't add the helmets with the Jayhawk on them from 3 years ago or the powder blue throwback jerseys from last year. I was looking forward to the powder blue jerseys so much but noooooooooo.......Oregon has 925,412 jerseys and KU has 3.
    Is he a gem?

    I would if I had the option. EA has to force my players to be vaginas though. Dangit.

    I had quite a bit of success out of the option. Other than that, I didn't try too much out of shotgun.........I have noticed that when you line up in wildcat, the computer pretty much sends the house and you get no where almost every time.

    No, but after UTEP QB lit my ass up, I figured I could use all the help I can get.

    My offense is better and easier to run than I expected... defense not so much. Had troubles stopping Syracuse. Bring on #1 Alabama!

    Has anyone looked at the 4-year outlook of Championship Contenders page? That is some really interesting stuff. ranked 77th now, but in 2015 I'm supposed to be in the 40s! haha

    Is it me or does the cpu blitz about 80% of the time? Definitely more than in previous versions of ncaa.

    yea with some teams they blitz 100% of the time. I kind of like it though.. Makes it more interesting at times..

    Yeah, UVA just happens to be on the rise IRL, so they're one of the better 3* teams this year. Projected to be in the 20s each year, IIRC. Of course, I'm recruiting pretty poorly now, so we'll see how those projections hold up :(

    If you go to recruiting and then look at "my team," it will show some really interesting things about dynamic pitches. Like projected draft picks other things like that.

    Not sure if I want to start the better thrower, or over all quarterback in this game vs. Northwestern. I might have to almost alternate series.

    Just got hoed in another dynasty. I was Maryland playing against UCF. MY QB overthrew two separate receivers on go routes where they had burned the whole defense for what should have been easy TDs. My team dropped 3 INTs. UCF caught every INT they had a chance at (3). They fumbled twice and recovered both, one for a TD, one for a first down (both fumbled forward). They scored one TD where my guy covering the WR was running infront of him on his route and just stood there as the ball came in and didn't swat it or anything....Should have been an easy pick but he let the guy catch it and keep running for a TD. Then, on the final drive, needing a TD, I got to 3rd and 9....Had a guy wide open crossing the field 10 yards away from my QB....MY QB overthrows him by 8 yards. 4th and 9 for the game. Had a guy open on an out route, I hit him 2 yards past the 1st down line, the corner comes up and pushes him 4 yards backwards, he regains his balance just in time to run out of balance.....No forward progress awarded, now two yards short of the first down line, turnover on downs. Ball game.

    In recruiting i noticed my pitches are not saving. for example, if i pitch conference prestige and get 100 points the next week i have to pitch the same ones again. Is this happening to everyone else or am i doing something wrong.

    I noticed the deep pass is way to easy to complete so far. anyway to make it tougher. some plays i dont even call it because i know its a long completion or a td every time.

    Is virginia that much better than everyone else. sure looks like it so far.
