    1) ACC, Big XII, or SEC - which is the best toughest user conference?
    Maybe bias, but Big XII was TOUGH. I wish i wasn't swamped with school, work, and a social life because I would of done a whole lot better and maybe made the case better. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. But with teams like Oklahoma (who did have a down year), Texas (unscathed until the final week), and Baylor (who was phenomenal and I needed a heroic start to beat) the Big XII was a gauntlet.
    2) Who is your Heisman Trophy Winner?
    Wish i knew more about people in the league but i don't.
    3) Best offense season 1, best defense?
    Again, maybe Bias, but i think once i got rolling with Jake Heaps, I was untouchable. With another year under my belt and a healthy amount of my guys returning including Heaps, I should dominate offensively. Defensively, I don't think a Big XII guy wins it since I ran through everyone offensively (including Texas). Defensively, I didn't play any other users outside the Big XII aside from Navy. So i have no clue.
    4) Who is your Coach of the Year?
    Texas was amazing this year so i think Max easily wins this.
    5) Your favorite victory and worst defeat (this can be you obviously)?
    My favorite victory was my win against Baylor. That game, i was in a zone and was dominate. My worst loss(es) are the 3 Sim losses i took to TCU, then two in a row to end the year vs WVU and Kansas St. I easily could of won those games and would of been 9-3 instead of 6-6. It's very upsetting.
    6) Commitment you are currently most excited about?
    We got a 5 star WR who is amazing and will do work in the slot next year. I'm gonna get him on the field as much as possible.
    7) Do you have a developing rivalry?
    Not yet but we'll see with two users looking to get revenge in Oklahoma and Baylor next season. I got them both at home and now get to go to Norman and Waco respectively. Plus i had a good one with Texas in Austin so that one will be fun.
    8) What were the best parts about tFC Season 1?
    The user games are probably the only reason i'm still in the league. I still get that jerk of excitement from playing a game against a user. It's the best part for sure.
    9) What are some areas that could use some improving (problem and suggested/actionable solutions)?
    Nothing can fix a buggy game. We gotta live with the bullshit like 13-14 passing days for the cpu and runningbacks breaking 3+ tackles. It's either gonna be too easy or a load of cheesy CPU games.
    10) Anything else you would like to add before we start heading towards Season 2?
    Maybe research with Jello about the Playoff thing. Is there a way the make it work for ODs? That'd be neat but i doubt it could work.

    1) ACC, Big XII, or SEC - which is the best toughest user conference?

    I vote Big XII. Baylor took out a VERY tough Texas team, beat me by 3 and hammered OU. Every coach in that conference is a difference maker

    2) Who is your Heisman Trophy Winner?

    Lache Seastrunk - Hands down the best back in the country

    3) Best offense season 1, best defense?

    Offense - Virginia
    Defense - Notre Dame


    4) Who is your Coach of the Year?

    IrishBearcat - took an average team and dominated.

    5) Your favorite victory and worst defeat (this can be you obviously)?

    Beating Mizzou and clinching the SEC West title was my favorite. Losing 73-71 in 4 OT to SMU was pretty damn unacceptable...

    6) Commitment you are currently most excited about?
    None! I am getting hammered in recruiting!


    7) Do you have a developing rivalry?
    Bucs is always a good matchup, I can see BRUCE80 becoming a rival if I can consistently stay within a score or two of him :)

    8) What were the best parts about tFC Season 1?

    The Comraderie and the good coaches that are in the league

    9) What are some areas that could use some improving (problem and suggested/actionable solutions)?

    Nothing really, a bugged game is bugged! Just gonna have fun!

    10) Anything else you would like to add before we start heading towards Season 2?

    Looking forward to a better year recruiting, and playing Charter and Hornfan!

    1) ACC, Big XII, or SEC - which is the best toughest user conference?
    -The ACC. Virginia is the best team and Notre Dame and FSU are good too.

    2) Who is your Heisman Trophy Winner?
    -Virginia's Kevin Parks. 1600 yards and 35 TD's. Tough to beat those numbers.

    3) Best offense season 1, best defense?
    -I only played two user teams so it's tough to say. Virginia played the best defense and offense against me.

    4) Who is your Coach of the Year?
    -It has to be Austin1990. Turned a very average Virginia team into the best in the country.

    5) Your favorite victory and worst defeat (this can be you obviously)?
    -Beating Alabama on the road was big. Losing to LSU was the worst. Made me miss a bowl and made me quit for a minute because of the CPU's cheating.

    6) Commitment you are currently most excited about?
    -3 Star 79 overall QB Marcus Hairston. His 88 speed will come in handy.

    7) Do you have a developing rivalry?
    -I guess Alabama. He is the only user I played in conference. I'm sure he will want revenge this next year. :)

    8) What were the best parts about tFC Season 1?
    -Good group and guys. It's moved alone pretty fast.

    9) What are some areas that could use some improving (problem and suggested/actionable solutions)?
    -The CPU game play but, not sure if there is a fix. Might just have to suck it up and have fun.

    10) Anything else you would like to add before we start heading towards Season 2?
    -Not that I can think of.

    1) ACC, Big XII, or SEC - which is the best toughest user conference?

    Gonna go Big 12 with the ACC a close second. Big 12 cannibalized itself as far as getting to the title game and showed that any team could be beaten any week.

    2) Who is your Heisman Trophy Winner?

    UVA's Kevin Parks , 35 rushing touchdowns .. damn.

    3) Best offense season 1, best defense?

    Best offense I faced was Texas , potent running attack. Best defense I faced was Kansas , I dont remember exactly HOW they stifled me ,but they held me to my lowest point total so there is that.

    4) Who is your Coach of the Year?

    Austin1990 , no way Virginia should be undefeated.

    5) Your favorite victory and worst defeat (this can be you obviously)?

    Favorite victory, a tie between the victories over Mike E and MaxATX34 , to beat the two big dogs in state is always a nice feather in the cap, even if it did take two last second field goals. Worst defeat was to CPU Kansas State, threw way too many interceptions and never really could get things going.

    6) Commitment you are currently most excited about?

    Eric Rust 5'10 226 pound athlete with a 93 break tackle and 92 stiff arm.

    7) Do you have a developing rivalry?

    No true rivals yet, but im sure Texas and Oklahoma will be looking for some get back while I look to avenge losses to the kansas schools. Maybe a friendly rivalry with Mike E and TAMU.

    8) What were the best parts about tFC Season 1?

    The competitive user games. We have a strong group of guys skills wise I think.

    9) What are some areas that could use some improving (problem and suggested/actionable solutions)?

    A little more content, but that will come as we get to mold our teams more I think.

    10) Anything else you would like to add before we start heading towards Season 2?

    Season 1 was fun, I'm sure season 2 will surpass.

    1) ACC, Big XII, or SEC - which is the best toughest user conference?
    The Big XII wins this one in my opinion, nobody could pull ahead as the favorite and they all beat up on each other.

    2) Who is your Heisman Trophy Winner?
    Texas’ Gray was solid all year and has been creeping up and down the Heisman list

    3) Best offense season 1, best defense?
    Just out of respect for him using it, cougars and his flex get the nod on offense. If someone’s not ready for it he will shred you. The best defense was FSU, I know Twister is gone but man my guys were outmatched at every position, I had a hard time moving the ball.

    4) Who is your Coach of the Year?
    Texas was a close second, but I gotta give it to Irish. I can’t hold one tough CPU loss against him, could happen to anyone.

    5) Your favorite victory and worst defeat (this can be you obviously)?
    My favorite win was beating then #1 FSU. It put UVA on the map. And I’m undefeated although I have a very tough matchup against Notre Dame coming up that could end up being a problem for my NC hopes.

    6) Commitment you are currently most’ excited about?
    4* ATH Andrew Thomas: at 6’5” with 90 SPD 91 ACC, he will make a great WR for the Cavs down the road.

    7) Do you have a developing rivalry?
    I’m looking forward to my game against Irish, I think that will turn into a great rivalry

    8) What were the best parts about tFC Season 1?
    It was good to be back in a full dynasty again. The other one I’m in is great, but we only have 5 people now.

    9) What are some areas that could use some improving (problem and suggested/actionable solutions)?
    Sliders discussion is ongoing and should be looked at as a group this offseason.

    10) Anything else you would like to add before we start heading towards Season 2?
    Looking forward to moving forward!

    Gotta go with the ACC. Austin1990 is tough. FSU was a tough game last year, plus I don't know enough about the Big XII to make any assumptions.

    2) Who is your Heisman Trophy Winner?
    Johnathan Gray looks like he had an incredible year. But so did UVA's tailback. I

    3) Best offense season 1, best defense?
    I only got to play FSU and Arkansas. FSU had the best offense and Charter04 had the best defense.

    4) Who is your Coach of the Year?
    Gotta be Austin1990 right? UVA as ACC champs and possible national title game?

    5) Your favorite victory and worst defeat (this can be you obviously)?
    I didn't have any user wins this year, and had 2 painful defeats. 4OT to FSU on a fumble by a backup RB, and a hard fought loss to Arkansas.

    6) Commitment you are currently most excited about?
    Several, but Chester Ingram is my crown jewel this year. 6'3" 221, 87 speed, 86 juke, 85 elusiveness, 87 throwing power, and 82 accuracy. He's going to be excellent after a redshirt season.

    7) Do you have a developing rivalry?
    Arkansas and charter04. For some reason I was really sore after that loss. Maybe because I'd fall behind, fight like crazy to get backl within striking distance, only to have him run off and hide again.

    8) What were the best parts about tFC Season 1?
    All of it. It's been nice to have a second OD, and

    9) What are some areas that could use some improving (problem and suggested/actionable solutions)?
    Nothing really. I thought everything went pretty smooth.

    1) ACC, Big XII, or SEC - which is the best toughest user conference?

    I'm going to go with ACC by small margin. Texas was great but lost to Baylor at the end. Baylor is a great team, but they did go 0-2 against the state of Kansas. Kansas is definitely playing above their potential, but that doesn't make them a powerhouse. Oklahoma had a tough year too. Virginia is the best team in the country, and my squad had a pretty good year. Florida State is ridiculously talented too. Navy won't be fixed overnight, but I'd challenge our top 3 user teams to stack up against any conference in the country. SEC had a great year, but definitely wasn't a top 2 conference this season.

    2) Who is your Heisman Trophy Winner?

    Kevin Parks & his 35 touchdowns. Not sure how we'll stop this steamroller in the CCG.

    3) Best offense season 1, best defense?

    Florida State's talent on defense is pretty scary. Can't wait to face them with recchem2000 at the helm.

    4) Who is your Coach of the Year?

    You have to give it to Austin1990 after taking the Cavaliers through the ACC unscathed season one. At the pace their going they're going to the new Alabama.

    5) Your favorite victory and worst defeat (this can be you obviously)?

    Beating Florida State on the road in Tallahassee was a great game. My worst loss has to be my only loss, the gut-wrenching blemish to the Demon Deacons. Yuck!

    6) Commitment you are currently most excited about?

    ATH Ryan Burrell from Hawaii. He's going to be a stud on offense. It will be tempting not to redshirt him.

    7) Do you have a developing rivalry?

    I think ND v FSU could be one, hard to know without having played the new Coach. ND v Navy will be great once Cougars transforms them into a contender, but I ultimately see Notre Dame and Virginia battling it out annually for the ACC crown. We'll find out this week.

    8) What were the best parts about tFC Season 1?

    Really liked our members and their ability to stick together. With the sliders, a few people working through their anger after losses, and just the unprompted contributions everyone has made with recruiting and summaries. I think our dozen will only get stronger and this has the potential to be a pretty awesome OD. So far, so good!

    9) What are some areas that could use some improving (problem and suggested/actionable solutions)?

    Sliders. People working together to fix them. :)

    10) Anything else you would like to add before we start heading towards Season 2?

    GO IRISH

    Hook 'em! Case McCoy is gone, and whoever I use at QB next year will have some running ability so be prepared for that added dimension!
