    Reality vs Video Games

    I've done this a couple times, has anyone else?

    Since playing in these franchises, TMFL and NCAA, I have slipped up in sports conversations saying something that has happened in my video game and not in real life, i.e. saying Big Ben has a herniated disc and is out 10 weeks when in real life he's tearing stuff up.

    Just curious if this has happened to anyone else. I notice it usually happens to me in regards to injuries.

    Haha yeah me and my buddy are watching the Iowa State vs Nebraska game. The Nebraksa's punter punted a 60 yard punt which pinned IA St at the 5. My buddy leaned to me and said" He's good, he's a 99" (referring to his NCAA rating). I laughed because I was wondering what his rating was.

    I was telling my buddy how Demps transfer to Florida ST, when we were watching a Flo ST game he told me i was on crack, but to make a long story short he won $20 off me and he is FLO ST in our Offline dynasty, so he knew he had transferred in our dynasty, because he was starting in 2011. I thought it was real, i shouldnt live up to my name so much.

    Yeah, I totally do the same stuff...Me and a friend will be watching a game then will tell each other what play the team in real life should call b/c it works well on NCAA 10...We'll also be talking about tons of stuff from our NCAA 10 dynasty then another football fan will wonder what the hell we're talking about b/c we're talking imaginary recruits, transfers, etc.

    I've never gotten reality and video games mixed up... However, all the lower-tier schools that I've run with in dynasties always achieve a much greater level of success in real life in the following years after I use them.

    For instance... I had Minnesota starting with the year that Barber was a soph or maybe Jr. and Maroney was a Fr. Did well with them and in the following years they became a winning, very successful team year in/year out for awhile in real life..

    Louisville. used them before they ever became a winner under Petrino. They subsequently had a lot of success in real life.

    Central Michigan. Took them, there wasn't even a Dan Lefevour on that team when I had them, they've become one of the winningest lower-conference schools the past few years.

    Wondering if the same thing happens with Purdue. They are looking really solid under Hope this year...

    Purdue won't make a bowl game this year. Maybe next year.

    I've never in my life confused what happened in a game to what happened in the real world. That sounds dangerous. :confused:
