Season 1 - Week 2 Scores
Little late in creating this:
Week 2 - 1 user game - Alabama at Texas
FCS W 0 @ OU 77
....1st 2nd 3rd 4th
OU 42 21 7 7
FCS 0 0 0 0
This game was gay to say the least. I must have started in their 30 the entire 1st half due to picks and FF's. OU dropped 42 on FCS in the 1st Q and another 21 in the 2nd. OU had a pick 6, a returned punt, and numerous big kick/punt returns. Bradford only got to throw 10 passes as he was benched late in the 2nd Q along with the rest of all starters. I honestly tried to take it easy here but it seemed every time a rushed with Murray, he went to the house. FCS does NOT believe in putting 6 in the box let alone 7 or 8. OU has no business having a team like FCS W on their schedule. Guessin it has somethin to do with my late switch. But in the future i think we need to keep teams like this off our schedules. I literally could have put up 130!
Marc, two things.
1 - all FCS schools were removed from user schedules, except for possibly you and hokie, who switched teams after the season started.
2 - there is a 70 point cap on cpu games, period. I put this in the new rules thread, which I understand everyone may not have yet read. This will just be a warning to you and everyone, keep your score at no more than 70. If you are annihilating the cpu that may mean kicking FG's late in the game instead of scoring TD's. Going forward, anyone going over 70 runs the risk of the score being thrown out and having your game simmed.
#16 Cal 33
Cincinnati hosted the #16 Cal GoldenBears this weekend.
Cal brought to town a great offense with QB Kevin Riley and All American HB Jahvid Best. This was a great game from the start. Cal took the opening kickoff and drove the length of the field for a TD.
The Bearcats responded when freshman return man Lynell Payne took the opening kickoff 102 yards to the house.
The game went back and forth and then got really interesting in the 4th quarter. With Cal ahead by 5, Cincy had to convert numerous 3rd and longs to keep their drive alive for the go ahead TD. Sr. WR Mardy Gilyard came up with a couple huge plays in one on one coverage to help his team. After scoring a TD to go ahead by 2 with 3 minutes remaining, Cal got the ball and marched down field. The Bearcats were finally able to get some pressure on Skinner and forced a punt from midfield.
The Bearcats were unable to convert a first down and punted the ball back. The defense responded when called upon forcing a turnover on downs. The Bearcats were able to run the clock down to 10 seconds left before kicking a field goal to go up 5. Thankfully they covered the ensuing kickoff and that was all she wrote for this one.
Mike Leach gets his first win as the OC at Cincinnati.
"Now that's a playbook!!!" -QB Tony Pike after game
Players of the Game:
Game Ball QB T. Pike 159.1 rating, 21/34, 300 yds 3 TDs

HB J. Best 13 car, 58 yds, rec, 20 yds
FR SS D. Frey 6 tackles
SO DT J. Hughes 5 tackles, TFL, sack
FR WR Lynell Payne 4 returns 192 yds, TD
i kneeled down on 4 drives.
I understand, sorry, I was meaning for future games, keep the 70 point cap in mind.
I agree he shouldn't have violated the 70 point cap, but at least he did it appropriately. None of his starters racked up unrealistic stats so it wasn't stat mongering or anything like that. Just a bad matchup against an FCS school.
ND pounds BYU 58-24.
Kansas State vs UL Lafayette
After a shake up in the coaching staff, K-State was able to gain focus and defeat the Ragin Cajuns with a balanced attack led by So QB Cris Harper 340yds 3 TD, So RB Daniel Thomas 153yds 1 TD, WR Brandon Banks 153yds 1 TD, and WR Attrail Snipes 164 yds 2 TD. If the Wildcats can learn to take care of the ball they should be competitive in the Big 12.
USF vs. FAU
It was total domination from the start. The Owls had no answer for the Bulls' run game, and USF exploited that fact. Grothe only threw the ball 9 times. The backs were working as a unit... with Ford carrying the load, Plancher to offer a change of pace and hands out of the backfield, and Taylor breaking all the big ones. Grothe was on point carrying the ball also. Also of note, (RS)Senior Jerome Murphy returned a kickoff 85yds for a TD. USF's starters were out early and should be well rested for their big match up against Penn State.

#19 Nebraska - 35
#12 Oregon - 59
Basically I got effed by Masoli (31/35 passing, 469 yards, 7 TDs) and threw 7 Ints myself. Tied at 21 at the half, but the 2nd half was ugly.
Ouch man. Way to kickoff Masoli's heisman campaign though. I'm sure he appreciates it.
I know the 7 TD passes was a new Oregon record, but I can't remember if the 469 yards was a school record too. I could have had 14 guys on the field and I still wouldn't have stopped him.
Suh couldn't even help???
I only gave up 39 rush yards on 20-some carries. I think Suh got a sack and a couple TFL, so he did his job. DBs and LBs didn't.
All - you probably all recall, but due to my out of town business trip, we will advance to week 3 when I return on Friday. If Blaza and I can meet up that day or early evening, we'll advance after that. If not, we will sim the game and advance. Get your games and recruiting in prior to then, as we won't be waiting for any CPU games at that point.
Apologies to everyone again for the delay, but we'll get on track once I get back.
Iowa State 30
Took some advice from Dru and pounded the rock over 40 times for close to 200 yards to eek out a victory over Iowa St.
Dru I will be able to play early Friday evening. I'm usually home by 5 EST and can play anytime after that
OK, I will try and look for you then.
UF 52 WK 10
LSU Gets A Scare At Home!!
The Commodores came to Death Valley with upset on their mind. The weather was in on it as it was raining cats and dogs, too bad LSU didn't cooperate. LSU escapes with a 24-17 win behind a strong running game. SR RB AA Charles Scott had 101 yards on 23 carries and 2 TD's. When he went down with back spasms in the 3rd qtr in came SR RB Trindon Holliday who scored the winning TD on a 50 yard scamper to open the 4th qtr. He also chipped in with 6 catches for 64 yards. On Defense the Tigers were led by JR SS Chad Jones who recorded 12 tackles and had 2 big deflections one in the end zone on a 4th and 3 that ended the 2nd qtr.
Pitt defense bends but doesn't break
University Park, PA-- A old fashion shootout occurred today in Happy Valley and the Panthers were the last ones standing as they take down 8 Penn State. This game drives the D-Coordinators up the walls as both teams had over 860 total yards of offense. Daryl Clark played lights out for the Nittany Lions as he completed 32-41 for 486 yards 6 TDs and an INT. Bill Stull managed the game well for Pitt as he threw 16-22 385 yards 2 TDs and an INT. Dion Lewis left the game in the first quarter and Shariff Harris handled the rock well, 27 attempts for 127 yards with 4 TDs. Pitt's defense played the worst they could but they also forced 1 more turnover than the counterpart. The Panthers will be on the road again next week at Oregon State.
