    no changes.

    and I got my tail handed to me again.

    The wheels have officially come off for star QB Eric Soza of the UTSA Roadrunners. He is getting worse and that's hard to do, but not as hard as producing less offense than last week (180yds) this week vs the Rice Owls (178yds). Someone stick a fork in me. It's getting bad out here in San Antonio!

    Well this one was a hard game to lose especially since my star wide out T. Jefferson had 5 dropped passes and one of them would have been for a touchdown, also caught the hail mary pass at the end of the game but was stopped at the 3 yard line to stop us from tying the game up. My defense pretty much sucked to with giving up 178 yards rushing to their running back

    WKU 22 - TROY 40

    TROY OPENED A CAN OF OL' FASHION WHOOP ASS IN THE 4TH QTR EVERY THING THAT COULD GO WRONG DID!

    Troy jumped out to an early 3-0 lead on a J.Soloman FG. Troy started the 2nd QTR with another FG by Soloman. WKU answered with a 92 yard KO return by Rico Suave Brown. Troy answered with their 3rd redzone field goal to up 9-7. WKU answered on an impressive drive that saw J.Evans score on a 9 yard scamper. Troy was able to end the half with their own scoring drive when C.Robinson connected with C.Worthy to end the half. Score at half saw Troy lead 16-14. WKU scored on the first possession of the 2nd half with the FB K. Jones scoring from 2 yards out. THEN IT ALL WENT DOWN HILL!!! Troy QB C.Robinson completed a 42 yard strike AS I ATTEMPTED TO ANSWER MY PHONE...WHAT A DOUCH BAG CHOICE ON MY PART!!!(You said I couldn't take about others in the rules but I made fun of myself) Troy opened up the 4th QTR with an amazing drive that seen them score on another pass from C.Robinson to J.Albert. 20 Seconds later Troy hit paydirt again on an 25 yard pick 6 by CB C.Pickett(YOU HAVE TO SEE THE VIDEO, WOW) Troy ended the game with a 23 yard FG....

    You you have to play Troy....BEWARE I should have lost by 30!!!

    Question once you see these stats what do I do in the SIM world? If my QB is throwing picks at an uncontrollable pace can I scrap the pass and just run???

    QB James Mauro 7-22 119 yards 0TD 4INT
    RB K.Simpson 17 ATT for 122 Yards 0TD
    TE J.Doyle 3REC 93 Yards

    Texas State Notches 1st WAC Win.

    The Bobcats came in to their first WAC game not quite sure what to make of their team. They got embarrassed by Houston, then embarrassed Texas Tech. They looked great against New Mexico and blew a large lead against Nevada.

    The good Bobcats showed up today as the defense led the way by holding the visiting Idaho Vandals to 230 yards in a 20-3 win at Wacker Field.

    Terrence Franks ran for 144 yards and a score to lead the offense.

    G Morg, in response, I think you are fine running, but again just big picture things to keep in mind:
    -throwing less than 12-15 passes a game (u threw 22 which is certainly kosher) would probably be unsim long-term. Ga tech and army throw that many
    -rushing using the same running gimmee plays over and over again (last year it was basically dive, dive, dive) would be unsim. in no way imply your doing this, i have no idea... just sim play for rushing attacks. mix it up.

    but summary: change it up, roll conservative for sure (plus your RB is a beast), limit passing but keep it sim is the general idea. maybe sub in your backup qb. i have a hard time pulling that trigger myself but it is common knowledge that when your guy throws a couple of picks he takes a HUGE ratings hit and probably isn't your best option anyways at that point.

    good game though man, troy is good.

    I have no idea why we are losing a ton lately, but I will say this: these sliders are pretty darn perfect for a mix of tough/possible carousel league. we'll keep on eye on at season end but I'm encouraged! loving it!

    San Jose State gets Ervin back and runs all over Utah State 35-17. (up top for you mmullen8)

    In a game marred with first half fumbles two by both teams. Both teams teams scored twice as the Spartans struck first on a three yard pass to Grigsby. Utah State would answer back with two TD passes to Austin from 12 and 15 yards out. I would tie it up before half when Stewart would find Jones on a forty yard out play.

    In the second half it would not be till late in the third when Ervin would find pay dirt for the first time on a three yard run to put us up for good. They would respond with a quick FG but that would be it as the forth belonged to Ervin would would score from 39 and 65 yards out on route to a 19 for 204 yard showing.

    way to sign up to do something and not have the integrity to do it. don't expect anyone to watch mine. its for accountability purposes, the very thing you're bucking... a-hole.

    why do I have to explain posting videos to everyone again? we are not questioning this. have the integrity to post them, if they fail on upload (happened one time for me out of like 20 times and no reported freezes), tell us. and if you don't post and say they failed... get a life. and quit this league.

    Dude I just went to see what you are talking about and I am sorry for calling you a liar. I did post all five scores but for some reason only one went through. I thought you were looking at my Navy game where I only posted the one score I had.
