    Thankfully not! Got highlights and EVERYTHING. Feels good to finally play a game that sticks.

    I had to give one team 5 user games, and that team is texacotea this time around. This seems to happen every year due to uneven conference user games and the differences in starting weeks for conference play, so it wont ever be the same team twice if I can help it.

    Are we completely opposed to switching the protected rivals to ensure we all have two conference user games each year?

    I like this idea a lot, but Big Suge Knight doesn't want to lose aOSU as a protected rival.

    I don't mind making the switch if the majority wants it, it would make scheduling a helluva lot easier

    I think it'd make the conference races a lot more interesting as we'd always play 2 or 3 users in conference. With ASU, the 1st 2 years I only play 1 ('Zona) and then I'd have 3 the next 2 years. It'd be much better to always have at least 2 imo.

    I'm 100% in favor of protecting games with users. At Wisconsin, the only rival I have is the protected game with Minnesota (and Iowa on the rotation) so I face the possibility of having zero rivalry games for recruiting, which I'm ok with. I think having a minimum of two user games in conference is important. This year I only have 1, against northwestern. The winner of that game is clearly in the drivers seat for the Leaders title. I think Sherm has 2 conference games, which puts him at a big disadvantage. Also, eliminating a rivalry game for us will make recruiting more difficult, which is good for the CPU since they are so terrible at it.

    I'm also 100% in favor of setting up protected rivals for user games. I see no issues with this in the SEC, but it gets a little tricky in the Pac12 and B1G. ASU and UofA are fairly even, but with protecting rivals, that means one of us is "gets" to play Washington every year while the other "has to" play Stanford every year. Likewise, in the B1G, MSU and Michigan are even, but of them is "fortunate" enough to play Northwestern yearly while the other is "forced" to play Wisconsin every year.

    Clearly I'm not saying anything about the coaches of any of those teams, but instead the talent/recruiting disparity between them.

    There is nothing preventing us from rotating a home and home within our conferences with protected user games.

    I like the 2 conference setup for that same reason. Using custom protected rivals is a compromise in some ways.

    Correct. I would be willing to play aOSU in week 14 or 15 and give up an early CPU OOC game for sure. But then again that would probably skew the conference standings.

    I am willing to do what is best for the league.

    You can't play Ohio State as a non conference game, if that's what you mean.

    I can't schedule a game for you against aOSU though, so there would be no way of guaranteeing you a game with them.

    Played my game last night. Won 34-24. Then......!!!! You can see it has me at 1-0 but no score for the game. JCspartan2 you may still have to throw out my results so I'm not 2-0 after week 1.

    Just an fyi, I received a bunch of emails regarding Suge's Michigan game vs LSU. That typically signals that the game results won't stick right???
