Oregon State Beavers
Offense : Pro-style (OSU stock book)
Defense: 3-4 base
Arizona state sun devils
Offense: Florida state
Multiple play books aren't allowed. Must either use 3-4, 4-3 , 425 335 etc ... Also if it is a custom pb you have to list out the formations here .
Offense:. Army base playbook with Flex and Wishbone included. Emphasize keeping on the ground, but will mix in the pass to keep the defense honest. Also will utilize SG on 3rd down long/obvious passing situations.
Split Wing X
Split Wing Z

Split Wing Z
Tight (Short ydg/goalline)
Strong (Short ydg/goalline)
Normal HB Wk
Wing Trips Wk
Defense 4-2-5 base. Will match up w/more DBs depending on down and distance.
Scholarships: 12 SRs, 69 roster = 13 scholarships
Alright. Thought that was for offense, confused by the example listed. I'll run 3-4. Not a custom book...the standard stock.
70 - 10 seniors = 10 spots
69 Total Players - 19 Seniors + 1 Transfer = 19 Scholarships
Defense: 43 (added 44, and 34 over ed)
69/70 Players + 20 seniors = 21 Scholarships
17 Filled 4 Left
Nick Snyder (J)
Marcus Lewis (J)
Trey Davis (J)
Slot Flex Wing
Trio 4 WR
Trips 4 WR
Twin TE Slot
Ace 4WR Trio
Split TE Wing
Y Trips HB WK
Slot TE Flex
Bucs I'll probably change my mind on my Offense. Does anyone know a spread playbook that has a few 2 TE sets?
Check UCLA ... I don't have any TE on my roster so I took all the sets with TE out but I think I rememeber a few 2 TE looks
Defense: 425 with 43
I do not agree with Stanford's custom PB after playing against it.
I think this would have best been handled as a PM between you, me and the commish. It also would have been nice if you would have accepted my party request to talk about it. This is the offense I used in every user game (Rwiyciane, sonofgod twice, hornfaninbama and papa perry)last year except for you and qclassic and no one said a word. I'm running the Flex because IMO it's the hardest offense to run and it's a fun challenge.
As you know it's a "passing challenged" system so I retain some spread concepts for passing downs, if I get way behind and to mix things up (exactly like my PB description). I'm not trying to get over on anyone - it's just a game and I do it for fun. Kind of takes the fun out of things when your first msg was, "GG but your offense was crap." Hey man if you think that way that is fine, but at least give me the courtesy to accept my party request so we could discuss it.
With all that being said GG. I was fortunate to win.
Then run it and not be bailed out by the spread, (doh) because that is how it is crap. I'd rather see a typical offense, not a hodgepodge thrown together.
Run Army, AF or Navy with minimal changes if you want the "challenge" ... I think it is poorly constructed and what you are going for you should probably switch to Air Force, because what you have above is too modified from being Army...
With this post, you took it to the level of a PM, I did not come at you and wasn't worthy of a PM because it is my $.02 on your PB.
If I deleted the empty sets (which none of the service academies have) would that work? I still think this a bit on trivial side since Air Force has 5 SG formations and I have 6. I started with Army as my base, but it could have just as easily been Air Force. What you call hodgepodge I call a CPB. I would have taken your comments much more constructively if you hadn't called it "crap". I only used the spread/SG like I advertised, in the 2 minute offense and obvious passing downs on 3rd and sometimes 2nd down.
By saying you didn't approve of my offense you did "come at me". Not sure how you don't see that.
One of those things that I see your point and disagree with.
I respect your take, I will give this some thought.
I've got to agree with Knight. You don't ever see teams run that offense the entire game but go to shotgun because they're behind or anything like that.
There is real life (IRL), there's this game and everyone's perception in between. In real life all the service academies have SG formations, they are just not nearly as proficient as the teams that do it IRL. Watching the Naval Academy trying to run a no-huddle 2 minute offense is like watching a monkey screw a football, they have it in their tool kit, but it's not very good.
Then you have this game where we try to play SIM, but it's a video game and there are going to be discrepancies.
Bucs changed PB to Stanford
After losing QB will Ulmer to transfer, the Maryland Terps have elected to go with a more pro style set to better suit their QBs competing for the job. Ulmer was an athlete with great speed that would have caused havoc on defenses in a spread offense.
Offense: Air Raid (custom)
Spread HB Wk
Spread Flex Wk
After some more deep contemplation I am going to fully commit to the FleXbox One/Wingbone and create another CPB using Air Force as a base.
I will post it here and run it through the commish for approval.
LOL this site has some sort of glitch where when you write FleXbox One it auto converts it into XBOX-One.
