    I think that I have my internet figured out. If it doesn't work, i guess I'll have to go on auto and you play the comp. I can't get to my parent's house until Friday night.

    I changed ISPs but they cant hook me up until next Saturday.

    Want to try like 10PM est tonight?

    Running late, don't think that I will make it by 10. I'm thinking that you may have to play the computer.

    Sorry.

    I'm not near my phone. Looks like Smooth's call to me. I'll handle it how you like. If Loaf can't play, I think putting him on auto is fair at this point. I'll auto him, and if you play it, you do. If Loaf gets home and takes himself off auto so you guys can play, so be it.

    Another ballsy play call sealed it for me... Fake punt on 4th and 2 with 130 or so to play converted to let me run out the clock...

    I was honestly wondering the same thing. I thought that maybe it was bc I was pissed at losing, but I am glad someone else said it too

    Who is the last coach you saw fake a punt on that situation? Where were you on the field?

    Does that make it cheesy because I don't have a coach that called something like that? Dantonio's fake FG in OT is somewhat similar and everyone remembers Belicheck's failed attempt deeper on like a 4th and 3 in his own territory that ended up backfiring against Peyton and the Colts.

    Midfield... My 46 to be exact if I recall correctly. 4th and 2, 1:30 or so to play, he's got one timeout, I've got all of mine. First down seals the game.

    In my opinion, at that spot on the field, and how he'd eaten up the seams and posts in the middle of the field all day, if I was going to lose, I wanted it to be based on a failed attempt to win, not a failed attempt to get a stop, cause God knows I wasn't going to stop anything to his slot guys. Depending on his PR call, I was either going to take a delay of game if he was lined up in PR Safe man and then punt or go for the first down and the win.

    It's more of a coaching decision than a sim thing in my opinion. Unsim, would be fake punt, 4th and 12, own 5 yard line. 4th and short, with the time on the clock, lack of timeouts, and chance to seal the game, on the road, I think it's more of a coach's decision than cheese.

    Feel free to agree to disagree, and if you all want to throw the results out, go for it.

    I stand by having the ability to make a coaching decision in the event that 1) it's not exploiting the game and 2) it could happen in a sim environment (regardless of how rare it may be).

    Dantonio was in a tie game and he faked a field goal not a punt. A pretty big difference in terms of risk of a turnover.

    I understand what your saying, however I still haven't seen it happen in real life. Also unlike real life, fake punts are automatic first downs if your opponent isn't in punt safe.

    Thats just my opinion I can see why you did it and if the other guys don't have a problem then I don't care.
