    Season 4 National Title Game...

    Va Tech vs. Texas A&M

    Im setting the line on this game as A&M -2.5. Nothing against Tech, Sanders is awesome with a sick team but I just think the matchup really favors A&M. Like many of our user games, turnovers are usually the difference, and A&M does a great job of holding onto the ball. Good luck to both you guys, this has been a great season. Oregon is left with what could have been, losing to Georgia and USC in overtime and getting picked on the 10 yard line going in for the leading score with a minute to play against Va Tech. I'm pumped for next season, should be another good one.

    Let it be known that Sanders beat my ass in the AT&T cotton bowl last season, but that was last year.

    I would love for everyone to post their thoughts on this. When I get home tonight I can post some stats and breakdown, but would love for an unbiased opinion.

    I remember looking over Va Tech's roster, and they are loaded.

    With McCoy, Logan Thomas and some 99 OVR rated RB, they are going to be a load.

    Should be a great game.

    Well these are my thoughts; Drifter took me to the woodshed (31-7, and should have been 40 something to 7 but he took the foot off the throtle) and I think I have a pretty good team and I think I am a pretty good player....... so I will have to go with A&M because Drifter makes great adjustments. Nothing against Sander, I just have not played him with USC.

    Texas A&M 24
    Va. Tech 23

    I've played both, but not in this league or even in NCAA 10. It should be a nailbiter. Drifter plays more conventional and conservative than Sanders, who spreads things out and is faster-paced. I think Sanders style is more conducive to turnovers, so I'm going with A&M, 24-21.

    I think VaTech partied too much after beating Georgia and are going to come out soft.

    It comes down to if my defense can stop his running game. When I play BBJ (Georgia), and he can run the ball, it is tough to stop. If I go to stop the run, then he'll pass it on me. Same can be said for this game.

    Like some others have said, turnovers are crucial. I am known to throw a lot of picks in games because I force it. I try going into the game not to force it, but it always seems to bite me in the arse.

    I can shoot for that, I might be a few minutes late, so just a heads up.

    Already screwing with your head Sand, making you wait for him.

    By the way, have you factored in the future screwings you are going to take from him if you beat him. Forget four home games, don't be surprised if you somehow end up at Viginia Military Academy, or Morgan State next year.

    Lord help you if you have a secondary player win the Thorpe award, you would be looking at a 15 scholarship reduction, and a requirement that you aren't allowed to start a player that has a rating over 80.

    I could see Drifter going medieval on you if you win, a cross between Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs.

    Hey, if I was going to sanction anyone, it would have been that Illinois squad full of criminals and a coach with the moral standards of an Enron exec.

    LOL, I'm good on the Thorpe award. I think I have been dead last in the nation the last two seasons in pass defense.

    I miss my Illinois squad. Defense was salty. I remember one season my team gave up 300 yards rushing for the year. Now I give up 400 yards on the ground to USC and Oregon.

    I feel like Bobby Bowden, talking about how good I used to be.

    Need to turn that around ASAP.
