    We are in the second of The Armchair Entourage and we have hit a halting point.

    Year 1, I won a national title with Virginia Tech versus a USC user and everything went well. Noissues.

    Year 2, I am facing the Ohio State Buckeyes @JFace907 in the national title, and we have hit a brick wall. We were facing some connect issues (and we've played against each other in other leagues and even went a ranked match to test and ever thing has been fine). We thought it might just be servers...

    Still, it wouldn't work. We've tried over 11 times now and it disconnects every time he enters special teams.

    It would suck because I will lose in a sim. My starting quarterback is a backup that is 82 overall and he has Pryor who is 99. Just don't want my whole season screwed by a glitch.

    Well, I am hooked straight in, he's about to try it.

    It worked online with a ranked match, but we will see if it helps. Willing to try.

    Thats one thing we have not tried. Its a lil difficult for me to do. Would require moving an XBox and TV a room infested with cat dander (allergic to the bastards) to eliminate that equation

    I had forgot that, that was the room the cats hang out in. My allergies would go haywire in there.

    Buy a longer cat5 and try it. Otherwise, drop out and have someone else see if they can play.

    well, he tried removing router from equation, but to no avail. It really is a glitch. Only thing I can see now is trying to put another player as us and seeing if it works for them.

    Are either of you starting a kicker at punter or vice versa? I heard that can cause problems when trying to play a user bowl game.

    This is a known issue in user/user bowl games. There's posts about it at Operation Sports. Some of the possible solutions include: kicking both of you from the league and re-inviting, or not choosing a Special Teams play to start the game by letting the clock time out. I don't know if either of these work. Also people have speculated about an injured player in the depth charts causing the issue.

    I don't know if @Gyrene76 is but I'm not. Got a K and P in their correct places.

    His starting qb is hurt and can't play in this game. Should he throw him towards the end of the depth chart?

    We can get Bud to kick us from the dynasty and reinvite us.

    I will move all my injured players to the back. Have 2. QB and WR

    He just left for work i believe. We'll try the injured workaround, starting correct K's and P's, and then one other workaround and see what happens. Then we'll have bud kick us.

    Also, try not selecting a Kickoff play. Let it time out, the CPU supposedly will choose your play for you.
