I wrote this in the scores thread: Now that I'm 6 games into my Michigan dynasty I can't really understand the difference between how teams of different levels play. With Illinois I suck ASS at stopping the run. I've allowed 560 rushing yards through 3 games (187/game). Michigan has only allowed 152 rushing yards through SIX games (25 yds/game). Illinois can't get ANY pressure on the QB. We've only gotten 6 sacks in 3 games. Michigan's 88 OVR LE has already broken the Michigan single season sack record with 13 sacks in only 6 games! Michigan has 29 sacks in 4 games (5/per game compared to Illinois' 2/game). The defensive stat that really matters, PPG is drastically different too. Michigan's has given up 60 points in 6 games (10 PPG). Illinois has given up WAY more points (83) in half as many games. It's very weird. My Illinois CPU games have been extremely challenging. My Michigan games, which use sliders VERY similar to The E's, have been brokenly easy (even though I did lose to UConn). I now need to drastically alter the sliders to try to make my defense be less dominant. Obviously you'd expect the good teams to play better than the bad ones, but I've never seen such a drastic difference before (and Michigan is only 10 points better than Illinois at 91 v. 81 OVR). It's gonna be interesting to see how the good teams and bad teams in the E fare against the CPU.
