    FG for the win.jpg
    Kicking the game winning FG with 40s left in the game!​

    This game was thrilling until the very end and everything you'd expect from a battle between 2 top 5 teams. (The closest CPU game I've had in the past 4+ seasons was a 28 point win) Both teams went back in forth all game with neither team holding more than a 7 point lead. Wisconsin's O was extremely efficient all day long (I have stadium sounds and I got sick and tired of hearing their damned "gained 1st down" song). The game came down to 3 things:
    1. Wisconsin missed a 50 yard FG in the 1st quarter by about 2 yards.
    2. SMU PR Scott Slaughter returned a punt for a TD.***
    3. SMU had 1 sack (on 22 pass attempts) in the first 27:20 of the game. Then, with a 3 point lead and 40s remaining, SMU came up with 2 HUGE coverage sacks (on the wire) which gave Wisconsin 3rd and 23 with 10s left in the game.
    ***Slaughter was the main returner last season. Through the first 12 games he had 0 TDs. Then against Masler in the CCG he returned a punt for a TD. Then in the bowl game he returned a KO for a TD. Now in the season opener he returned a punt for a TD giving him a return for TD in 3 straight games (after 12 straight games with none!)

    Game Balls:
    HB#2 Jesse Jones - 5 car, 20 yds (4.0 YPC), 2 TD
    QB Timothy Hicks - 8 car, 93 yds (11.6 YPC)
    MLB Blake Bell - 12 tkls

    Ohio St 7
    Baylor 45

    The Bears dominated the Buckeyes from the start in a big win after a disappointing season last year. HB Skip White had 183 yards on the ground and QB Nate Cox threw 3 TDs. DE Tyrone Mays harassed the OSU QB all day and the secondary had numerous deflections allowing only 9 completions on 29 attempts with 1 INT. The Bears had a huge first half jumping out to a 31-0 lead. It was 38-0 late in the 4th when OSU finally scored ending the shutout. All in all, a great start to the season with the Bears hungry to prove last year was a fluke.

    QB Cox 9/16 182 yards, 3 TDs, 9 att, 36 yards, TD
    HB White 23 att, 183 yards, TD, 109 return yards
    WR Irons 3 rec, 44 yards, TD

    (AP) Clemson - The #14 Clemson Tigers utilized a dominating defensive performance to crush the Nebraska Cornhuskers 49-6. The Tigers D held the Cornhuskers to 253 yds (29 on the ground) and forced 2 defensive turnover TDs - a 56 yard fumble return by JR-CB Anthony Brown and a 22 yard INT return by JR-OLB Brandon Hughes. Next week the Tigers are on a bye.

    Pic to come later...

    #16 Kansas State - 57

    Illinois - 46

    The Illini would find a spark in the 2nd half to give the Wildcats a run for their money but some late turnovers killed two of their drives that would have cut the lead to just one score. The scoring on the day started when new starting MLB Carter would hit the ballcarrier in the endzone and score a safety. This was only possibly since Adams threw a pick in the redzone but the Wildcats made them pay. Mays would go out with an injury for the day so Webb came in a had a great day, starting off with a 44 yard rush to give us a 9-0 lead. It would be a huge day for KSU's rushing game as they accumulated 191 yards and 4 touchdowns while Adams showed he is a capable thrower with nearly 500 yards and 4 TD passes. Another key factor was the huge lead we built in the first half and Illinois just could not overcome it even though they went blow for blow against us late.

    Kansas St. opens up with a nice win but I didn't feel confident yet.

    Daniels TD.jpg
    SR WR Billy Daniels was pretty much uncoverable on the day​

    SMU, which sported the nation's 2nd longest home winning streak, traveled to Baton Rouge to face the Tigers, owners of the nation's longest winning streak. LSU ran their no huddle fleXbox One attack well (every ball carrier had at least 5 YPC at halftime) but when they were forced to pass the ball, they were completely incapable (in the 3rd quarter their QB had completed as many balls to SMU defenders as he had to his own receivers; 1 apiece). On the other side of the ball it was SMU's balanced attack (which was even uncharacteristically more pass heavy) that was the difference. SR WR Billy Daniels was easily the difference with 3 TD catches and a gorgeous diving catch (all on the wire) on a 3rd and long to extend a drive.

    Game Balls:
    QB Timothy Hicks - 204.2, 18/27 (66%), 285 yds, 4 TD, 0 INT - 10 car, 48 yds (4.8 YPC), TD
    WR Billy Daniels - 7 rec, 128 yds, 3 TD, 0 drops (while the rest of the team had 4)
    MLB Blake Bell - 7 tkls, 2 TFL, 2 Sks

    #1 GT 28
    Boise State 10


    Georgia Tech opened its season with a hard fought victory against the Boise State Broncos. The Yellow Jackets jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead in the 1st quarter. The game then settled in as both defenses made it difficult for offenses to get in a rhythm. Georgia Tech starts a number of first year players and offense so the sluggish offense was to be expected. The one constant was HB Frank Benjamin who had a big day capped off with 78yrd TD run. The defense was stellar as it held the Broncos to 79 rushing yards and 3/12 on third down conversions. Good win to start off the season.

    There's no better way for a defense to start a game than this!​

    SMU's brutal schedule continued in week 4 as they've played 3 games, all on the road against teams ranked in the top 7. Coming into this one the Terps brought their high flying offense that was nationally ranked in the top 8 for points (43), yards(515) and the nation's best rushing yards (342). The storyline of the game was shown on the 3rd play as Maryland's QB dropped back and saw the ball deflected by 1 defender and the plucked out of the air by all everything safety Kenard Mack for a TD. Maryland answered back with 2 TDs, the 2nd of which coming on the 1st play of the 2nd quarter. It was all about the SMU D after that as they shut out the turtles for the last 3 quarters.

    As for the storyline, this game could be told by the "in"s. SMU's QB threw 3 "in"completions. Maryland's QB threw 3 "in"terceptions. In addition to the 3 picks, Maryland's butter fingers kick returner (65 CAR) was rocked on a KR immediately after SMU scored a TD and his fumble was returned for a TD, giving SMU a lead that they'd never relinquish. The turnovers were simply too much for Maryland to overcome. One of the more amazing stats is that this game is actually the 4th straight loss at home for the Terps. Maybe they should schedule everything on the road.

    My name's Blake Bell. It's a pleasure to meet you Mr. Quarterback​

    SMU finally got to play in front of their home fans and the Stangs didn't disappoint. Several guys stepped up on both sides of the ball in what was a very clean game (0 turnovers). SMU was very balanced with 213 yards on the ground and 260 through the air.

    Let me first say that I don't know what kind of steroids the CPU took for this season but if they played like this throughout the entire OD it would've been soooooo much better! Wisconsin took me to the wire, LSU fought hard for a half, and now TCU wasn't even kind enough to use any lube in the first half.


    SMU 38
    TCU 27

    422A0001_0_JPEG_SCREENSHOT_WWN.jpg
    Blankenship couldn't hang onto the ball today if his life depended on it​

    TCU was without coach Darkwing for the first time against SMU, but you'd never know it. They opened the game with a 75 yard wildcat run for a TD and used that as a jumping off point. By the time the 1st quarter was over and SMU sifted through the aftermath they trailed 17-0 and were outgained in yardage by a tally of 202-61. What's worse for SMU, they only had 7 yards on 5 carries while TCU ran for 133 on 12 carries. By the half TCU had a 20-3 lead.

    SMU's offense couldn't keep the ball because QB Timothy Hicks chose today to throw the first 3 INTs of his career after 12 straight TDs. But, on the other side of th ball, TCU's QB Blankenship couldn't hold onto the ball whenever he took to the ground (which was often). He fumbled a horrendous 5 times, losing 4, 1 of which was returned by a big ole DT for a TD. In the end, thanx to these fumbles, SMU was able to retain the Iron Skillet for yet another year.

    Game Balls (you know your D was on the field too damned long when you had 4 guys with double digit tackles):
    HB#2 Jesse Jones - 9 car, 59 yds (6.5 YPC), 3 TDs
    MLB Blake Bell - 14 tkls, TFL
    FS Anthony Burns - 12 tkls, FF
    OLB Shannon Merrill - 11 tkls, 2 TFL, Sk, FF
    SS Kenard Mack - 10 tkls, 2 TFL
    CB Cory Jones - 8 tkls, TFL, Sk, FF

    I was going through stats of this game looks like you're pretty lucky the cpu fumbled four times. I'm not sure I've the cpu fumble four times in one season against me. Not sure if any tweaks were made but the cpu is playing pretty tough UVA was a handful.

    The many fumbles were because the CPU isn't smart enough to sub out a cold player or at least change up how they handle him. Usually it's a couple of INTs that turn a QB cold, but I can guarantee you after his 2nd fumble he was cool and he was cold after 3. Of course when you're cold you're more likely to turn it over so it snowballed. That's why if my QB gets cold ill either take him out or call safe passes until he warms up some.

    You're definitely right though. Without those fumbles, 4 coming in the 2nd half, 2 coming in 3 plays, I lose that game badly.

    True FR WR Alex Walton making his first career catch in spectacular fashion​

    Don't let the score fool you. This was yet another brutally tough game played by the CPU (SMU only led by 7 in the 4th quarter). The midshipmen used their pro style attack to really beat up SMU on the ground (their #1 HB had 197 yards on 21 carries for 9.3 YPC and 2 TD) and on the other side of the ball they harassed the SMU QB all day as they piled up 6 sacks. SMU only won their last game because they forced a bunch of fumbles. They only won this game because they got 2 huge, momentum changing returns. The first was a 66 punt return by Scott Slaughter late in the 1st half which gave SMU their first 2 score lead. The 2nd was a 90 yard KR in the 4th quarter by Matt Barrett immediately after Navy cut the lead to 7.

    Game Balls:
    WR Billy Daniels - 4 rec, 92 yds, TD
    KR/PR Scott Slaughter - 2 KR, 42 yds - 5 PR, 104 yds, TD
    KR Matt Barrett - 3 KR, 134 yds, TD

    #1 GT 17
    #10 KSU 10

    Georgia Tech played host to the #10 Kansas State Wildcats for a battle of unbeaten teams in the Big 12. Both teams have MNC aspirations and this game will set the tone for both teams. The game started off with both Defensive’s taking control of the game. KSU would turn away GT on its opening drive as the GT WR would get to the first down marker but come back on the catch to come up short. KSU would go 3 an out on its first possession of the game also as the punting game would start.

    Much of the 1st quarter was a battle of field position each team would be unable to move the ball. KSU would put together a drive late and push into the red zone. The GT defense would tighten up and force KSU back hold them to a 44fg. The 2nd quarter would open up a little as the GT offense would get things clicking. GT would get down to the KSU 10 and look to get a TD. KSU would turn up the heat on D and hold strong for a GT 21fg. GT would give up one first down on KSU’s next possession to get the ball back with just over 2mins before halftime hoping to break the lead. KSU would help GT’s cause as they would call timeouts after the first two plays hoping to conserve time. GT would pick up a first down to keep the clock and drive going. GT would finish off the drive with a 3yrd td pass from QB Parham to TE Sullivan. GT would go into half leading 10-3.

    The second half would provide a little more offense but lack scoring. Both teams would move the ball between the 20s only to be stonewalled by the defense. GT would finally make KSU pay for blitzing as Parham dropped in a pass over the DE dropping in coverage to WR Walker on the post. Walker would out run the secondary for a 39yrd td pass. With the way the GT was playing a 17-3 would seem insurmountable going into the 4th. KSU would not go quietly as they came out pounding to start the 4th and string together a solid drive. GT would once again hold strong and force KSU to a FG attempt. The KSU kicker would buckle under the pressure and pull the 35yrd FG.

    GT would take over and start to move the ball into KSU territory looking to add to the lead. The KSU defense would have none of it as they would pick off Parham. Once again KSU would start to move the ball and get right down to the GT 5yrd line. KSU would line up looking to punch it in to come within with in a TD. As the HB took the handoff to plow into the line OLB Mayfield would close from the outside and deliver a crushing hit that caused the HB to fumble. Once again the GT would turn away the KSU offense but fail to take advantage. GT would be forced again to punt as they would run little time off the clock which could have cost them the game. After the punt KSU would strike on its first play for a 62yrd TD to pull within 7 with 1:50 left and all of it’s TO’s. HB Frank Benjamin would take over for GT and pound out the clock to secure a GT victory. Tough had fought game as I expected to be GG Masler.

    #1 GT 34
    #8 FSU 7

    The Yellow Jackets traveled to Tallahassee to for a division fight with the 8th ranked undefeated Florida State Seminoles. The loser would pretty much be shut out of a birth to the Big 12 championship game so a lot was riding on the game. Georgia Tech’s Head ball coach must have got the message across loud and clear to the team as they dominated in all phases. The Yellow Jackets rolled up over 350yrds of offense and clipped the wings of FSU’s high powered passing attack. FSU was held to 143yrds through the air and 224yrds of total offense. GT’s Soph QB Michael Parham outshined the Heisman Trophy leader QB Thomas Reed by throwing for 268yrds and 3tds to Reeds 143yrds and 1td. Tech’s defense was strong all day only allowing FSU to convert 2/8 3rd downs and turning them over twice. GT dropped numerous picks and harassed Reed all day into bad throws. The only FSU score came with 52secs left in the first half, other than that FSU never really threatened in the game as GT controlled the time of possession 19:31 to 8:29. GT now prepares for a big game next week as it travels to Dallas to take on SMU jello1717 at Gerald J Ford Stadium. Big game as GT, SMU, and Baylor have been jockeying for the #1 team in the country.

    #1 GT 24
    #3 SMU 17


    Dallas Texas was the scene for the game of the week as #1 Georgia Tech Yellows visited #3 Southern Methodist University Mustangs in a battle of top five unbeaten teams. Both feature strong running games, opportunistic defenses, and young dynamic QB’s. They are pretty much a mirror of each other on paper, but on paper only. SMU is the offensive blue print for the up-tempo read option that has sweep the nation and GT is the traditional pro-style time of possession offense.

    GT would open up on offense first and string together a long drive. QB Michael Parham would make some very nice throws as SMU would key on AA HB Frank Benjamin. Key play of the drive was Parham converting on a 3rd n 13 to avoid punting from midfield. The drive was capped off with a quick dump off to TE Damion Sullivan behind the blitzing LB’s for a 3yrd YD. On SMU’s opening drive they would come as expected up tempo and move the ball well. GT had a decent game plan for the offense but couldn’t stop SMU when they had them in long yardage situations. The GT defense would tighten up and hold SMU to a 48yrd FG which would close out the 1st quarter.

    The second quarter would be a reversal of the 1st quarter as GT would get a FG and SMU would hit on a long TD bomb. GT would once again put together a long drive and eat up a lot of clock. On 3rd down QB Michael Parham would throw a perfect pass to the back corner of the end zone for what looked like a TD. With all the reporters and media down in the area the coaches were not able to tell if the ball was tipped or just dropped by WR Ricky Bishop. GT would knock in the chip shot FG to go up 10-3. SMU would strike fairly quickly with its next possession after what looked like they might punt. SMU caught the GT defense out position with the hurry up and WR Bill Daniels made them pay has he got behind the secondary. QB Tim Hicks would hit him in stride for a 61yrd TD pass.

    This game had three series that really decided the out come with the first series coming right before half. Mad that the defense gave up the long td the GT O was determined to do the same before half. On the first play QB Michael Parham would make a terrible decision as he forced a throw that had no chance to be caught. Well not by his player at least at the SMU db was there for the pick and 40yrd return. Set up nicely at the 30 with over a minute left before half SMU looked to take the lead into half and receive the second half kickoff. GT defense would make up for the early deep ball and bail out Parham as they would return the favor and pickoff Hicks on the very first play. GT learned its lesson and ran out the clock tied 10-10 at half.

    To open the 3rd each team would have only one possession each. SMU would survive a scare as a quick slant was caught but fumbled on the 30. Another SMU WR would jump on it as the ball rolled through one of the GT db’s. SMU would have the only score of the 3rd as Hicks would hit his WR on a deep in route for the TD. GT would get the ball in the 3rd and go on a 4minute drive that would close out the 3rd and start the 4th with a 9yrd TD pass. Tied up 17 all the game would tense and wild as both teams could see defeat and victory with every play in the fourth.


    SMU first possession in the 4th would be a well-balanced drive with some key runs by Tim Hicks on broken plays. The second key series of the game would come with SMU closing in on a go ahead score. GT made some half time adjustments to the spread read option to try and contain it a little better. It seemed to work as Tim Hicks would keep the ball on a read and start for the alley. This time MLB Nick Williams would be there for the stop and manage to pry the ball loose. After a mad scramble for the ball a GT defensive linemen would scoop it up. With a little over 4mins left and without their star HB (knocked out in the 1st with a concussion) GT had a decision to make. Play conservative or go out and chuck it and let the chips fall where they will. Well they did both and it worked out after one play could have broken their spirit. One a first down play HB Robert Tolbert would break out of a pile and make what would looked like a 40yrd TD run. But as he slide out the side and started to run to daylight the only flag of the game would come out for holding. Instead of letting that break the team GT would come right back and pick up a first to keep the drive alive. GT would pound the ball down to the 3 and HB Carlos Russell would punch it in to put GT up 24-17 up late.


    SMU would have one chance left with 1:45 left and two TO’s left to get the tie and SMU would put itself in position to do just that. SMU would take the ball at the 25 and make play after play just when you think they would be stopped. QB Michael Hicks would again scramble for a big run to get SMU inside the 20. SMU would get the ball to the 1 with 18secs left and the keep series of the game would take place. SMU would come out tight left with one wr out wide right knowing GT would probably play man. GT set up goal line and played a hunch something to the left with the formation and would play run right. The guess was right and GT dropped the toss sweep in the backfield for a 4yrd loss. SMU called its final TO and to set up the final play of the game.

    SMU would come out four wide and make one last attempt to tie up the game. The play would develop to the left as SMU would call double inside slants looking for the quick pass. There was some confusion by the WR’s as the inside WR would stop short on the route. By doing this the outside WR would bring his DB inside with him and step right in front of the pass for the int intended for the inside WR. That would end the comeback hopes for SMU and allow GT to take one snap and run out the clock for the win. Very well-played game as both teams would come through in the clutch. Neither team would punt as GT would go a remarkable 9/10 on 3rd downs and SMU would be equally as good going 3/4. Each team had over 300yrds of offense, but GT would hold the TO advantage 3 to 1 and time of possession 9:59 to 18:01 which kept the high powered SMU O on the sidelines. GG jello1717 look forward to the rematch.

    Yeah, it was a great game. I couldn't figure out how to get your offense off the field and I couldn't figure out how to beat your press coverage. If I could've figured out either of those I had a shot.

    Miami (3-4) (1-3) 41
    Florida State (4-3) (2-3) 24

    FSU l 21 l 00 l 03 l 00 l 24
    Miami l 03 l 21 l 14 l 03 l 41

    It was a bad start for Miami, who opened up the first play of the game dropping a fumble and letting their bitter rivals return the ball for 6. The bad luck continued throughout the first quarter for Miami, who just couldn't get the ball moving or get a call to go their way. Finally with under 2 minutes left in the first quarter Miami kicked a FG to make it a 21-3 game and never looked back afterwards. For the remainder of the first half Miami shut out Florida State to take a 24-21 lead to end the half.

    The second half Florida State was not going to give up and scored on their opening drive tying the game up at 24 with a FG, but that was it for the Seminoles after Powers threw his 3rd touchdown pass of the night on the following drive. The Hurricanes continued success in the second half with another touchdown with :46 seconds left in the third quarter, giving Bowers his 4th and final touchdown of the evening. The fourth quarter was a strong defensive battle only allowing 3 points to come from Miami in the final minute after Florida State gave their last ditch efforts using all their timeouts and failing to stop the Hurricanes.

    This marks the first win for coach IBO since his return back to college football after his long 6 season long departure. Coach IBO tweeted after the game, "@TSOTheE Finally glad to get my first win back, and it couldn't have come at a better time, beating our instate rivals, Florida State! GO U!" He sounds excited and ready to build Miami back up to the way he was working on building NC State. With not much time left in his career with NCAA 13, coach IBO said in his latest press conference his goal was to win a conference championship before taking his step into NCAA 14.

    I know I'm sounding like a broken record by now, but holy hell! Where the fuck was this CPU during the first 9 seasons of this OD?!?!?!? It is WAAAAAAAAY more fun to play the CPU now than it was before!

    I don't know how to say this without it sounding mean spirited (which it isn't) but Texas, without coach bigrice25, played SMU much, much tougher than they have since they became the 1 and only CPU team to beat SMU way back in season 1 before coach Rice arrived. The first half was a knockdown, drag out affair with big hits all around as the 2 teams played to a 14-14 tie with Texas taking over with 3:44 left. The Horns went on a 13 play drive, having 1st and goal from the 3 yard line with only 1 minute left. With a score Texas would go into the half with a lead and they'd receive the ball 1st in the 2nd half. On 1st and goal HB James Brown was stuffed for a 3 yard loss. On 2nd down SMU sacked the QB for another 7 yard loss, leaving Texas with 3rd and goal from the 13 with 32s left. Then the unthinkable happened as Ham would force a pass into double coverage and it was picked off by CB Michael Randolph who then flew untouched 93 yards for a TD to give SMU the 21-14 halftime lead when it should've been Texas leading.

    Texas went to the locker room and regrouped nicely. Their D shutout SMU in the 3rd while their O got a FG to cut the lead to 4 points. The 4th quarter opened with a 6 play Texas drive which ended in a punt. SMU hoped to extend their lead, but they had a 3 and out. Texas then went on a soul crushing 8 play TD drive that had SMU looking at a 3 point deficit with only 1:35 left in the game.

    The good news was that SMU only needed a FG to tie the game. QB Timothy Hicks started the drive with 3 straight completions which got SMU 22 yards closer to their goal, but it was rapidly ended with Hicks' 3rd INT of the game (and 9th in the last 4 games after throwing 0 in the first 4) with only 54s left. Luckily SMU had all 3 timeouts left and Texas was just outside of FG range. 3 conservative plays and 3 SMU timeouts later Texas had to punt and give SMU the ball back on their own 16 yard line with 38s left.
    • 1st and 10 and Texas jumps offsides.
    • 1st and 5 and Hicks misses a wide open WR on a streak, overthrowing him by at least 10 yards.
    • 2nd and 5 and Hicks misses a wide open WR on an in, missing him by at least 5 yards.
    • Coach Jello then yanked the cool Hicks, in favor of true FR Andrew Hollis, who had only run 3 wildcat plays the entire game.
    • 3rd and 5 and Hollis, undoubtedly nervous in this high pressure situation, throws into double coverage, but thankfully missed everyone.
    • 4th and 5 with 24s left and SR WR Anthony Washington streaks through the secondary, wide open, and Hollis hits him right in the mitts for the game winning TD.
    Final Score:
    SMU 28
    Texas 24

    This game was absolutely brutal in the trenches. Texas held SMU to only 259 yards of offense (while gaining 317 themselves). Yards on the ground were at a premium as the 2 teams combined for 60 rushes, but neither team gained more than 45 yards. The 2 defenses combined for a staggering 31 tackles for a loss (keep in mind that while multiple people can get ATKs, only 1 guy gets credit for a TFL per play) on only 107 plays! That means 29% of every play run went for a loss! SMU held Texas to only 3/12 (25%) on 3rd downs, but the Horns were amazing on 3rd down, only allowing the Mustangs to convert 1 of their 8 tries (12%).

    Take note of the scoreboard. 24-21 Texas. 20s left in the 4th quarter. 4th down and 5 from the SMU 21 yard line.​
    Game Balls:
    WR Anthony Washington - 2 rec, 125 yds, TD
    OLB Shannon Merrill - 10 tkls, 4 TFL, 0.5 Sks
    CB Michael Randolph - 1 tkl, 2 INT, TD
    P Jacob Ramsey **** - 4 punts, 46.7 AVG, 45.5 Net AVG
    ****Yes, it was the kind of game where my punter gets a game ball.

    Just in case you guys didn't read the entire summary, here's the gist of the SMU/Texas game:

    That's crazy! I'd be surprised if my team had many more than that on the entire season.
