    This will have a weekly update with the user controlled player of the week.

    For now, only offense/special teams will count since we dont know who on the defense is user controlled. Feel free to campaign for your guy after a big week, but since it's my thread I pick the winners.

    WEEK 1

    Winner - Tahj Kimble, HB, Army - ran for 287 yards on 31 carries with 2 TD, plus had another 126 yards in punt/kick returns. All of that leading his team to a win over a B1G team makes him the Lord of the Sticks for week 1

    Honorable Mention:
    Kenny Williams, HB, Texas Tech - 26 carries, 275 yards, 2 TD
    Kevin Spain, QB, Hawaii - 15-20 passing, 150 yards, 1 TD plus 9 carries, 120 yards and 3 TD rushing
    Paul Robinson, WR, UAB - 10 catches, 157 yards, 3 TD plus 42 KoR yards
    Kamal Hogan, HB, Louisville - 23 carries, 246 yards, 2 TD

    WEEK 2

    Winner - Jay Leak, QB, Hawaii - came in for an injured Kevin Spain and engineered a 4th quarter comeback win, was 11-12 passing with 162 yards and 1 TD. Not daunting statistics, but with a few teams on bye weeks and no gaudy stats from other users, the backup gets the nod for week 2.

    Honorable Mention:
    Andrew Manley, QB, NMSU - 15-21 passing, 221 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
    Brandon Bettancourt, HB, NMSU - 19 rushes, 125 yards, 1 TD plus 2 catches for 10 yards
    Kendrick Rhodes, HB, FIU - 25 carries, 133 yards, 1 TD

    WEEK 3

    Winner - Chase Cresto, QB, Army - went 12 of 18 passing for 221 yards, 3 TD and no picks vs a (former) user. Despite some crazy statistical days from other guys, the efficient day in a win vs another user gives Cresto the edge for the Week 3 award.

    Honorable Mention:
    Darrin Reaves, HB, UAB - 21 carries, 116 yards, 3 TD and 4 catches for 23 yards
    Will Gregory, HB, Hawaii - 12 carries, 124 yards, 1 TD plus 3 catches, 102 yards, 1 TD
    Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville - 19-33 passing, 439 yards, 5 TD, 2 INT
    Scotty Young, QB, TTU - 18-27 passing, 481 yards, 5 TD, 1 INT
    Kenny Williams, HB, TTU - 27 rushes for 215 yards and 3 TD
    Bryan Cooley, WR, TTU - 7 catches for 270 yards and a TD

    WEEK 4

    Winner - Justus Pickett, HB, Maryland - narrowly edges out Tahj Kimble. Had a nice all purpose day to help get his team a win in a marquee user vs user matchup. 11 carries for 43 yards and a score, 3 catches for 56 yards, 2 kick returns for 46 yards.

    Honorable Mention:
    Tahj Kimble, HB, Army - 31 carries, 229 yards, 2 TD plus 114 total return yards
    Kendrick Rhodes, HB, FIU - 24 carries, 190 yards, 1 TD plus 1 catch for 13 yards

    WEEK 5

    Winner - Bo Woods, HB, New Mexico - monster game from the true frosh, 17 carries, 133 yards and a score. 2 catches, 73 yards and another score. 3 kick returns for 150 yards and yet another score and 3 punt returns for 42 yards for good measure. That's 398 all purpose yards coming off the bench after an injury to the teams star player.

    Honorable Mention:
    Kendrick Rhodes, HB, FIU - 26 carries, 148 yards, 2 TD
    Dominique Moss, HB, Wyoming - 16 carries, 130 yards, 2 TD plus a 10 yard TD catch
    Kevin Spain, QB, Hawaii - 10-13 passing, 162 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT plus 108 rushing yards on 15 carries

    Week 6 has to be my man Shane Coleman: 262 yds, 3 TD's, after coming in for the injured starter, ALL on just 23 carries for an insane 11.4 yards per carry. And in a user game, I might add.

    Devin Burns for Maryland had an outstanding week 7. 18/26 with 303 yards passing and 2 passing touchdowns PLUS 3 rushing touchdowns. Burns went for 5 total touchdowns AND led the Terrapins to a final 37 second drive to get the win.

    WEEK 6

    Winner - Shane Coleman, HB, FIU - came off the bench to replace injured star Kendrick Rhodes and gave his team a spark, running for 262 yards and 3 TDs in one of the most important games FIU will play all year long.
    Co-Winner - Bo Woods, HB, New Mexico - still filling in for the teams star player, this true freshman had a monster game with 167 rushing yards on 27 carries with a TD and 78 receiving yards with another TD. For good measure he added a 29 yard kick return and he did it all against his teams biggest rival.

    Honorable Mention:
    Tahj Kimble, HB, Army - 29 carries, 206 yards, 3 TD plus 69 return yards
    Scotty Young, QB, TTU - 19-41 passing, 536 yards, 6 TD, 3 INT

    little surprised Bo Woods wasn't at least a candidate for week 6 . . . In a User game he had 27 carries for 168 yards and a TD, 2 catches for 78 yards and a TD, and a bunch of return yards

    I must have missed your game in my stat mining, but I am boycotting UNM players on awards until I see video evidence of them getting it done in silver pants......

    Actually I'll update my award post here shortly, sounds like a co-winner performance

    When it comes along with less than 50% completions, 3 INTs and a loss to the CPU :confused:

    Still though, with as hard as it is to pass in this years game. That's pretty impressive.

    I don't find it all that hard to pass..... :cool:

    Especially against Hawaii who has no secondary players rated over 75 and both starting safeties are injured, but I know they game will cheeze you occasionally, which is what seemed to happen to Hokie in that game

    WEEK 7

    Winner - Mike Blakeley, HB, Florida - in one of the toughest weeks to pick a winner, Blakely gets the nod for his performance against an unbeaten top 5 team. He ran for 204 yards and 4 TDs against LSU on 23 carries and also gained 46 more yards on 2 catches

    Caleb Wright, QB, New Mexico - the much maligned QB managed 279 yards, 2 TD and no picks on 19-31 passing in a loss
    Tahj Kimble, HB, Army - continued his ridiculous season with 246 yards and 3 TD on 29 carries. Added 162 KOR yards on 6 tries
    Kevin Spain, QB, Hawaii - Dual threat had another huge game, 13-24 passing for 250 yards and 2 TD plus 10 runs for 120 and 3 TD with no TOs
    Brandon Bettancourt, HB, NMSU - big game in a user loss, 20 runs, 174 yards and 2 TD
    Devin Burns, QB, Maryland - shakey at times with 3 INTs but engineered a late drive for the win, 18-26 for 303 with 2 TDs and 3 more TDs on the ground

    Oh I know, I just enjoy my role of insanity.

    That being said, I loathe you with the fury of a thousand suns.
