    Sure, it's an advance away, but is it ever too early to start talking shit? ;)

    This is a big game for my boys. Can't say I'm not thrilled to be playin' in Death Valley.

    Let's throw down, baby!

    This sucks, but, You are going to be playing vs CPU- I have to go out of town for a week. Next season will be the big one though! Once I get my system in place for a fresh season!

    This is probably a longshot but if the UF/MSU game goes down tonight and we get an early advance tonight (just since everyone would be done with the week) then I could probably play you tomorrow (if you can play during the day- another longshot) as long as it is before 4:00pm or so-

    otherwise I will put myself on auto..and.....my squad seems a little too cocky right now, so feel free to give the CPU a beatdown- they may need an attitude adjustment :p

    Tom, if we advanced early tonight, I could play you as late as you wanted. I typically hit the sack around 2 AM or later. That being said, I work your standard M-F, 8-4, so I wouldn't be able to play you during the day. :( If we can't play tonight, I promise to go easy on you. ;) And, hey, a CPU loss is never out of the question. You have a talented group ...

    Tom, can you go tonight? If not, it's the CPU for me tomorrow night.

    As you probably know, I'd prefer that it be you. :)

    Bring it!

    That's going to take a little fun out of kicking your team's ass - but there's always next year! And speaking of which, there's no way in hell that you're getting off the hook next season. No simming of ANY user games, especially ours! :)

    You're going to miss Sunday's advance too then, right?

    Thanks- I am on auto, so you should be able to play whenever- hopefully I see you in the ACC Championship game instead of next season!

    Tom, thanks. Just finished up a dandy lil' victory, but it was fairly close.

    After this game, I'm never, ever drinking coffee before I play again. I was so jumpy that I allowed several big plays in the first half despite being in awesome position to make the stop. My stick skills were just ... "spaztic". The one GT highlight I saved was a perfect example.

    I paused the game at the half, drank three glasses of water, and just chilled for a bit before resuming. From there, I opened up the second half with about a 6 minute drive that included several defensive penalties, two 4th down conversions with inches to go, (one just outside FG range and the second inside the 10), and a killer running game.

    Defensively, I tightened up, and that was that.

    Hopefully the recruits took notice! ;)

    Edit: (Oddly, there's an error in the game stats. GT and I each punted twice, but it's not recorded that way.)

    In reviewing my game videos, I never realized that I dropped 8-10 yards back in shotgun plays. I'm hoping that was a rare case, as it looks really, really fucking stupid. It may be something I do out of habit, but I'm going to work to change that.

    I haven't seen your videos but is that 8-10 yards in addition to your 5 yards in shotgun? Or is that 8-10 total? If it is 8 total you should still be okay, a qb will still take a step-3 steps in a shotgun depending on the pass routes. 3 steps are rarer, but some programs do teach them, I know when I was at the florida coaches clinic last year they were working on them with Tebow and Brantley. I also know PSU uses some of them, but they are shorter steps.

    You're right Carol, but I wasn't in total. I've been working on it in practice mode ... I want all my highlights lookin' pretty. ;)
