    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?
    My first National Title, blowing out the Hokies to take it all home.

    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?

    My first National Title appearance where I lost to hokie. Could not stop the running game AT ALL. Had trouble on offense as well.


    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?

    This freshman QB I have now is a BEAST. Merriman is his name, He will be an absolute monster in a few years, especially on the ground.

    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?

    The content we will be able to generate, Dynasty wire looks awesome. The game looks awesome as well. We are ready for a year long ride documenting it all as we go along.

    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?

    I seem to have the best roster in the Pac-10 but I do not know how my QB and HBs will fare. I am excited about my safety's though, they look GOOD. Lamichael James scares me on Oregon being so good as a SOPHOMORE, and Recchem has almost beat me the last 2 times. The pac-10 race should be as exciting as ever next season.

    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?

    Most likely the pro style. If Barkley turns out to be accurate I may light it up more but I plan on using USC's playbook and want to find an electric running back.


    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?

    I just want to see participation and content from all of our guys. It should be alot of fun and you know I will be doing all my usual things.

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?
    I have enjoyed the league from the time I joined. I guess my favorite moments were the first season when I had a couple last second victories. Unfortunately that season ended with a conference championship loss to Florida State.

    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?
    I got trounced by USC once and Virginia Tech beat me badly at least once, but most painful was first loss to Ohio State. To lead entire game and lose on a 70+ yard TD was very painful. Plus I nearly broke my hand hitting the nearest wall.

    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?
    I really wanted to play out careers for Ellis (HB), Jones (HB), Patterson (MLB) and Richardson (FS). They were all great players and I really enjoyed using them. Patterson was the highest rated recruit I landed in this dynasty (4-star 86 OVR). Ellis has a great combination of speed and power and will finish with back to back 1000 yard seasons. Jones was all speed but he had tons of it, he was fastest recruit I landed. Last but not least was Richardson who has been a tackling machine for past 3 seasons. He would have easily reached 350 career tackles if we played one more season. He was my defensive leader since he first stepped on the field.

    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?
    I'm looking forward to playing in the Big Ten. That has always been my favorite conference and I'll be familiar with most of my players. I'm also looking forward to using some of Penn State's players, like Newsome.

    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?
    Penn State lost some talent this season but I still think we have enough to compete for Big 10 Title. The Ohio State and Michigan games will be big steps in securing that conference crown.

    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?
    I'm going to look over my roster to determine my school's strengths and weakness. I do hope to get a stud HB to replace Royster but other positions will depend on players leaving. As for the system, I'll probably be focusing on spread offense. The defense will depend on how the game plays. I'd like to run 3-4 but NCAA 10 had a very poor 3-4 playbook.

    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?
    I think we are heading in the right direction. I like how tasks are being assigned to different members. This will help people feel even more involved in the league. We have a good group of people here and I'm sure everyone will do an excellent job with the content.

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?

    The end of NCAA '10..yet to come but it will be my favorite.

    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?

    Probably the one that cost me National Title hopes a couple years back vs Penn St


    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?

    Wish I could have beat Hokie and DJ. Won the Big 10 and National Title. Wish WR James would've stayed his Senior year.

    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?

    Using a new team, playing in a new conference and playing against new teams.

    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?

    I think I will at least get 8 wins and earn a decent bowl.


    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?

    I want to try the option with Miami as they have a speedy QB. I have always been a pass first kinda guy, I may try to perfect the run in my eyes. I also might try to actually control my secondary instead of the defensive line. As for recruiting I am unsure because I do not yet know what Miami is exactly like.

    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?

    Everything looks good for now.


    Thanks for your time.

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year? Beating Texas


    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West? CPU Texas hanging like 70 on my #3 ranked team in the Big 12 Championship Game. Worst loss I've ever taken in any game.



    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?
    I was late to this part so I'll say win a Big 12 Championship, but I might get it this year.


    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?
    Improved blocking this year contributing to two 1,000 yd rushers for the Hokies. Or Logan Thomas' move back to TE and All-American honors.


    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?
    See above. Is contingent upon the blocking actually being impoved



    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?
    I'm going to stick to VT's playbook at first. Power running game, mobile QB, good TE's and a stout defense. Will look to put a stranglehold on the 757 area code for recruiting.



    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?
    Keep up the good work

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?

    I enjoyed playing the user games without having to face cheesers that run around with the QB all the time. This is a great group of coaches.

    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?


    Either North Carolina or Texas last season. My team gave up 300+ yards rushing and were pancaked more than 40 times in each game. It's frustrating when you're going for a tackle and your guy falls to the ground like he was hit with sniper fire.


    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?


    My team is starting to come around, after some of the subhumans that were getting pancaked graduated. I had a solid group of players coming back next season that would have been competitive.


    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?


    I look forward to playing with a solid group of coaches.


    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?


    I think my team is going to have some issues in season 1. I am breaking in a new QB who will turn the ball over like crazy. Plus, my defense only returns 5 or 6 starters. I will have AJ Green and two solid RBs. I look forward to recruiting Georgia and trying to steal some of Spurrier's recruits out of the Palmetto State.

    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?

    I will run a playbook that involves the I-formation. I love playing with teams that line up with a FB and TE who will knock your head off. I'm not sure what kind of depth I will have on defense. Since Auburn and Florida are both spread teams, I will probably run the 3-4.

    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?


    I love how the league is going so far. The highlight reel was a great touch.

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?
    Winning the BCS Title the against Hova (think thats the only time I beat him), my back to back Heismans, and of course my Big 10 dominance (I believe I went undefeated under the re-organization)

    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?
    I took some beatings against USC and Texas (when cnic was coach)

    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?
    I wish I had one more shot at Hova, but I guess I will see enough of him in the Pac 10 in '11. I am also curious to see how WR Terrence Brown would have developed.


    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?
    New rivalries in the Pac 10, the content, highlight reels, and the dynasty online web interface

    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?
    10+ win seasons are the expectations every year and I have already circled 10/30/10 on the schedule. If I can get past the Trojans I think I could make an honest run at the BCS title.

    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?
    I have never run a spread offense, but I think I may utilize the no-huddle spread this season. But don't worry James will touch the ball 20+ times a game. With the spread I would like to recruit a dual threat QB and surround him with speed,

    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?
    I think we have put this league in position to be one of the best on the site and I am pushing for us to move into the Premier status.

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?
    I finally won a BCS bowl game against Texas last season and even though Cnic was not on the other sideline it gave a little satisfaction to the ass whupping I took in conf challenge the previous year

    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?
    They are all bad but the most disappointing was the recent PSU loss b/c I came out of the gate strong but injury to my starting HB caused me to get out of my mix and throw some bad picks in the redzone.


    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?
    I hate Penn State 'nuff said


    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?
    A better starting roster.


    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?
    Better than in NCAA '10


    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?
    I am looking to go with a spread no huddle offense.


    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?

    Cant think of anything at the moment. Hova you've done a great job since taking over.


    I would pay an extra 10 or 15 bucks to get this game tomorrow.

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?

    Last season's Sugar Bowl win over Nebraska. It was my first major bowl win. What made it all the more great was that the team was far from the most talented one that I've had.

    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?

    While all the losses to USC hurt, earlier this season Virginia Tech just beat me from start to finish. DJ had an answer for everything I tried on offense and my defense just could do nothing against his passing attack.

    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?

    Beat USC and win a PAC-10 Championship

    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?

    I'm stoked to see the progression this league and group of owners will continue to make. I think we have the right mix of players to make this a fun league for a long time to come.

    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?

    I better fair well. I'll be playing with one of the best teams in the game so anything short of a Big Ten Championship will be a disappointment.

    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?

    Well as long as Pryor is at OSU i'll have to run some sort of offense that utilizes his strengths as a runner and passer. Once he's gone I'd like to move onto more of a pro style offense with a drop back passer.

    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?
    None that I can think of at the moment.

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?

    Winning 3 out of 4 user games to start the season. Got the year off to a good start!

    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?
    I've had some bad ones (VT and Penn State come to mind). However losing that opener to FSU this season was a tough one. Looking back at what could have been!


    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?
    BEAT USC!!!! I have one more shot but im hoping my baby cooperates and gives me the chance at least.



    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?
    Continuing my tough rivarly games with Hova. Hokie is new to the Pac10 but we've had our go arounds in another league so that will be fun as well. Just looking forward to a great league!


    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?
    Bad...It always takes me a while to get used to the new games. Being of a more mature age than some of you, my time and skills are rapidly declining. Im hoping to make a bowl game and leave it at that.


    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?
    Pro system. Im not much of a spread guy but you never know. I'll have to see how things look in the new game.


    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?
    I'll echo Hokies statement...keep pushing for that Premier status. We have a great group here that seems to be in it for the long haul.

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?
    Easy. Beating Texas A&M, although shutting out Missouri 45-0 was nice.


    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?
    The biggest margin of defeat was my second game in the OFFL west, about 5 seasons back, I lost to Texas A&M 72 – 20; that was not good. The game that was the hardest to swallow was, K-State two years ago. I was at home vs an inferior team, but my QB kept throwing the ball away from my receivers, by several yards, and the receivers kept dropping the ball. The K-State freshman QB and HB were awesome, and I ended up missing a bowl.

    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?
    I would have enjoyed a few more user victories, and I would like to see my QB Smith in two more years.


    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?
    I’m looking forward to a continuation of an active forum, with low user turnover, and good sim play. This is what sets this league apart.


    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?
    I’m thinking 8-4.


    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?
    I am going to stay as true to real-life system of my team as possible. That is what I enjoy. I did the same thing with Texas Tech in the past, even though it was not what I was best at. Don’t get me wrong, I want to win, but playing a realistic game more important to me.


    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?
    My opinion, advance twice a week, on set days, say Thursday and Sunday. I am not one to take responsibility lightly, so in order to keep up the pace, I often have to stay up much later than I like, or get up real early to get a game in.

    What is your favorite moment in the OFFL West this year?

    Probably beating DJ last year in OT. I beleive he was in the title game the year before and I was new to the league. I had went in fulling expecting to get blown out, but somehow managed a win.

    What was your worst loss in the OFFL West?

    My first season against Cnic. He ripped me a new one and completely shut me down.

    Anything you wish you could have did before we ended (beat someone, watch a recruit grow)?

    I would really like to win the Big 12 title this year, but the road runs through Texas Tech later. I also would like to see Chaz Benjamin play out his career. He was my first big recruitment and is no a RS FR that is 90 OVR.


    What are you looking forward to the most in The Legacy?

    Im looking forward to playing a full year. I got a late start this year and have played 3 seasons. Im excited to play 10 or so full seasons in 2011.


    How do you think your team will fare season 1 of The Legacy?

    Its hard to say. I have never played either of the two opponents in the ACC and I am not real familiar with FSU. I would be happy with a bowl game as I learn a new team and game.



    Have any ideas on what kind of system you will be running and recruiting at with your Legacy Team?

    I want to run a spread offense with the Seminoles. As for D I am undecided. Leaning towards a concervative defense that plays a bend but dont break style.



    Anything we should do or add to make The Legacy Better next season?

    Just follow through with everything that is planned. It appears as if we have big plans for the new game. Everyone has commited to some sort of content. It is a big commitment and will be an amazing experience if everything holds together. It would also be nice if we could keep the turnover very low.
