    We have reached the end of Season 1. I am putting up the poll for everyone to vote who should be EMVP Season 1. Good Luck!

    Arizona State

    Cameron Marshall - HB - 320 Att, 1763 yards, 5.5 ypc, 25 TD, 125.9 ypg

    This kid helped Arizona State win the Pac-12 and absolutely tore it up with the Spread offense. As a Junior he may decide not to go Pro, so we shall see if the Sun Devils get their star player back.

    Arkansas

    Knile Davis - HB - 282 Att, 1552 yards, 5.5 ypc, 18 TD, 110.8 ypg

    He helped the Razorbacks make an appearance in the SEC Champ game. Also a Junior that has all the makings of a future star.

    Michigan State

    BJ Cunningham - WR - 58 Rec, 1219 yards, 10 TD, 21 ypc, 87 ypg

    The only WR out of all of us to eclipse the 1000 yard mark. This kid helped MSU shred the B1G and technically won it if it wasn't for EA. He is Cousins' go to man.

    Ole Miss

    Jeff Scott - HB - 307 Att, 2119 yards, 6.9 ypc, 25 TD, 163 ypg

    The Heisman winner and only a SOPHOMORE, he will terrorize the SEC for at least one more season and with 163 ypg, another Heisman Trophy is calling his name.

    South Carolina

    Marcus Lattimore - HB - 287 Att, 1923 yards, 6.7 ypc, 19 TD, 137.3 ypg

    Always one step behind Scott but what does it matter when you can boast you have the SEC ring. Lattimore helped South Carolina overcome an embarrassing showing vs Auburn the year before and now prepares for a repeat Junior season.

    Stanford

    Andrew Luck - QB - 162.1 Rating, 210/364, 3372 yards, 39 TD, 16 INT, 240.8 ypg

    Winning at least the Pac-12 North and the BCS Orange Bowl were huge accomplishments for this kid in the 2011 Season. Coach Masler can only pray this kid wants one more year of suiting up for the Cardinal.

    Wisconsin

    Montee Ball - HB - 275 Att, 1862 yards, 6.7 ypc, 25 TD, 133 ypg

    Buckys hidden warrior that helped them into the B1G Championship after a slow start. Hopefully he comes back next year and makes himself noticed much sooner.

    Is it safe to say that we can't vote for our own guys?

    Davis faced off with Scott in the SECCG, not Marshall.

    BJ was the man. I could throw it up and he'd go get it with his size and hands. He won me the Michigan game on a huge catch and run late.

    You mention that BJ was the only receiver to eclipse 1000 yards (and he got my vote) but in Suge's all E-team post, it showed that Alshon Jeffery put up even better numbers that Cunningham.

    Scott currently leads the pack, if he gets just one more vote the award is his. But Cunnigham and Luck could stun everything if they get two more...who's it gunna be fellas?

    Going back to my old ways, I gotta keep an eye on you guys. I'm just putting it out there, but some of these rushing attempt #'s are a bit stat whore-ish IMO. In 2010 there were only 2 players in the entire nation that had 300+ carries. Out of 12 user teams we have 2 here. Perhaps you guys could consider spreading the load a bit in the future??? Very few backs at 20 years old have the ability to carry the mail approx 30x per game. Clearly the injury bug EA gave us didn't infringe upon these numbers in season 1, but I think it's something the league should be more conscious of in the future.

    [/rant]

    Here's the proof if your curious:

    http://espn.go.com/college-football/statistics/player/_/stat/rushing/sort/rushingAttempts

    As you can see, 2 players at 300+ and after that there's a very quick dropoff as the 25th most attempts in the nation was only 229.

    Welcome back GoGators. I have to agree. Sone of the #s I saw while doing the All E stuff were a tad high.

    I definitely agree that some of the numbers are ridiculous (sacks especially as well as yards per reception, and yards per carry), but carries wasn't one of them for me. There were 2 guys with 300+ carries in our OD, just like in the stats you listed. Out of curiosity, what's your idea of "approx 30x per game?" To me, that sounds like 27-30 per game. Just in defense of my guy (who led the nation in carries), he had less than 23 carries per game (I played 14 games) which doesn't sound like a lot. Also, as far as "spreading the load a bit", my #1 guy (who's clearly better than any other back) only had 56% of my carries which sounds very spread around to me. That's 5 carries for him compared to 4 for others. Now if you're asking me to pass the ball more (I had 569 carries vs. 270 passes) then you're asking me to change my entire offensive philosophy.

    For as much as Wisconsin pounds the rock in real life, no Badgers on that list. Clay, Ball and White split it up pretty good last year. I would've liked to do the same, but James White got hurt in the sim against Stanford and missed 8 games.

    I'd even argue that there's nothing wrong with my run/pass ratio either. I just grabbed the first 3 teams that popped into my mind that're team I'm trying to emulate and I'm in the ballpark (and lower than 2 of them) with my run/pass ratio.

    Team Carries Passes Run/Pass Ratio
    Auburn 652 296 2.20
    Miss. St 619 288 2.15
    Coach Jello 569 270 2.11
    Oregon 629 395 1.59

    IMO opinion the only time a half back getting 30+ carries a game becomes a problem is when it happens when your blowing opponents out or when that back is CLEARLY your only option. I had the #1 offense in terms of yards, but notice none of my HBs even cracked the top 10. I spread the carries about 50/40/10 between my 3 HBs Baker/Bell/Caper. There are teams that rely heavily on the running game, but almost all of them do not give 30 carries a game to a kid.

    That being said, I didn't have a huge problem with any ones "carries" statistic. The Ole Miss guy was literally the entire offense, so I expected to see huge numbers from him.

    Another thing to consider is that it took all of us some time to get used to the improved pass defense and most of us had to run a lot to move the ball and avoid turnovers. I also thought the running game was a tad too easy relative to the passing game (which I will correct with a slight slider modification).

    ? I mean i've always been a good passer. I play at least one game with either friends or for a dynasty or unranked a day because i have the time this summer. I just love the passing game because its a lot more risky and on the edge than running. Running is not easy but its easier than passing for sure. I also centralized my team on it's high points. Juron, Nick, and Dan were just amazing together and could move the ball easily.

    Hopefully this was serious and not sarcastic. Felt a bit of hostility in that post.
