    UTSA signs 2 more defensive players of huge need (defense was the focus, especially the entire secondary and DEs) with the additions of:
    -3-star DE Nick Pickens (67OVR, +2) out of Anderson Mill , TX who was drawing interest from TT and Houston. Pickens has accessional acceleration but can't tackle a thing.
    -3-star CB Matt Hill (66OVR, +5) out of Midland, TX who saw interest from the Arkansas Razorbacks. Hill is expected to be fast but weak.

    How will we do our future OOC schedules? For example I'd like to get a yearly series going with Syracuse to establish the dominant football program of NY lol.

    I'll address this more fully as we approach but my initial thoughts are:

    1) Messing with schedules too awfully much becomes an absolute nightmare for the commish
    2) All FCS teams will be replaced with lower tier teams across the board
    3) All users need at least 2 user games minimum and some of us (myself going to the CUSA and Bonner going to MWC) won't have any members in their conference (thanks mormon)
    3) I think it would be fun, to outside of this allow the following:
    -1 home-and-home of your choice (understanding fitting this exact choice can be difficult for me) with a local program
    -1 yearly pick of a game in a certain state to meet a promise made of playing in a recruit's home state (I hope you guys didn't promise 15 dudes games in their states... cuz it aint happening!)

    Anything more than this would be daunting to say the least.

    this is a problem across the board. are you using bluetooth? wired is the way to go and making sure you have the damn thing plugged in right (both plugs in PS3 and none in TV for wired sets) is the answer in my experience.

    my theory: if you were having issues with bonner it was bonner's set being crap. if you have bluetooth, it sucks.

    Man Lee Skinner is unreal in this game. Dude just completely dominated in a 11-6 defensive battle. Skinner had 7 tackles, 6 FOR LOSS. Dude is unbelievable at reading plays. He also forced a fumble and deflected a pass.

    This was one of the funniest games I've played and frustrating at same time. Both Ds played like the 2000 Ravens. The only non FG score was when I tackled their running back for a safety after throwing a pick by the end zone and stopping their guy at the 2.

    Recruiting front, nothing new but have a few soft commits. Things should come to form here in the next couple weeks.

    After being up at half 21-3 coach Bonner takes off to go watch the USA win some golds only to find out that the second half kickoff would result in a freeze. Grigsby was owning the poor NMSU secondary through the first half with 5 catches for 144 yards and 2 scores. Ervin tacking on the middle score on a 30 yard scamper. Going to go hang out with the roommates more. Will come back later when I can play straight through. Also there RB is an absolute beast I swear he broke 10 tackles in the first half alone.
