    I know we don't play until week 10, but with the Holidays coming up and all, figured we should try to schedule it now. When can you play? If we advance late Thursday, we could try to get it in then. Friday I am at my parents to celebrate Christmas but we lounge around all day so I could get a game in then. Late Friday works. Saturday during the day and into the night I have my wife's side for Christmas so I wouldn't be good until really late Saturday and Sunday anytime after 7:30 PM. Hopefully something like that works for you so we can get in this last user game before I get out of town.

    Damn, USF game me everything I wanted.. Barely squeaked out a 28-21 win. I was fumbling it seemed on almost every play and they tore my defense to shreads. Struggled against the cpu the last two nights, need to start stepping my game up.

    Oklahoma on the other hand is taking names and kicking ass.. Wow, what a thumping they handed a great Cornhusker team. Could be a battle of the titans if the Gators and Sooners can somehow make it to the title game. A long ways to go yet but it would be fun.

    Notre Dame scores 35 unanswered points after being down 14-0 in the 2nd to defeat a stunned Panthers team.

    Neither team was able to establish a running game in the first half as the game entered the 2nd quarter at a 0-0 tie. Pittsburgh took a 7-0 thanks to a 80 yard scoring strike from White to Tinker early in the 2nd quarter and would add another score after the Irish muffed a punt midway through the quarter. With 23 seconds left in the first half Notre Dame finally got on the board with a 75 yard strike of their own as JR receiver Bennet Jackson outran the Panther Defense after grabbing the pass from Hendrix.

    Notre Dame opened the 2nd half with a quick score as Toma caught a tipped ball and brought it 56 yards to make it 14-13, Warren added the PAT and tied it up. Already trailing 21-14, Pittsburgh called a fake punt pass which was picked and brought in for another Irish TD to put the game out of reach.

    The 35-21 victory brings the Irish to .500 at 4-4, 3-2 under their new coach as they continue to make a push for bowl eligibility.

    In what was a highly anticipated game, Nebraska took a hardy ass whooping against Oklahoma. They gave up 7 turnovers, several of them being in the redzone. Martinez being out with an injury really hurt the offensive flow. Hopefully they can shape up for a rematch in the Big XII title game.

    I was in a rush to finish and super simmed the last minute when I was up by 60. I saw that as well and didn't understand why it happened. I figured with a minute to go it would just auto kneel to get me through to the end. Anyway, sorry about that.

    Posted it above but wanted the forum to alert you, I super simmed the final minute thinking it would kneel it down when I was up 60 (was in a bit of a rush). Saw that happened and couldn't understand it myself.

    I know, 74 is out of control but litterally 4 defensive TD's and a Punt Return TD. Auburn is terrible, they had a 5 WR set with 2 CB.

    It's ok, but moving forward, try to make sure to just run the clock if you are up big and in a hurry. I know some people run the ball and chew clock the whole 2nd half if the game is obviously out of hand.

    On another note, I will go ahead and just have us on a 3 day advance from now until January 3. Obviously, some people will still have to miss games, but it shouldn't be too bad since I tried to front load schedules as much as possible.

    So, we will advance around the time Santa is hitting the chimney. I may get home a little after that, but one way or the other, that's the plan.

    No problem. I love how the game does those sportsmanship things (sportsmanship -50) and then does that. In the future I will just run it out manually.

    Sorry for the mix-up/confusion.
