    BIG GAMES THIS WEEK
    #2 TENNESSEE (2-0) @ #6 FLORIDA (2-0)

    ---This is an early statement game for the Vols with their huge amount of talent while on Florida's side, this is a game to see what Coach Steelah has done to get Florida rightfully at the top of the nation. Coach Bruce will have to contend with an equally talented Florida squad which profiles one of the better RB stables in the nation. Demps/Rainey are speedsters and it'll be interesting to see how Coach Bruce gameplans for their vaunted running attack. On Florida's side, how will they contain the new "Florida" in terms of speed? Tennessee can go 4-5 wide with burners at every WR position. Can Florida's pressure get to Tennessee's QB in time?

    #21 VIRGINIA TECH (2-0) @ #3 GEORGIA TECH (2-0)
    ---Coach JMS is feeling very confident about his team this time around. The defense seems vastly improved and he's been raving about the play of QB JuJu Clayton. Indeed JuJu will be key in this game because of his dual threat ability. Speaking of dual threat, Jaybo Shaw will need to limit his turnovers. He has 6 INT's on the year already and lost 3 fumbles in just 2 games. The cobwebs need to be shaken off here and now. Luckily GT found some semblance of a run game last week and expect to give VaTech a steady dose of Wright/Smith in the backfield. It will be interesting to see how VaTech's defense plays against a offensive powerhouse like GaTech.

    OTHER USER GAMES
    #16 PENN STATE (NR) @ #1 ALABAMA (1-0)---PSU hasn't played a game yet, it'll be interesting to see how they come out .
    MISSISSIPPI STATE (2-0) @ #4 AUBURN (2-0)---Don't hurt em Ramirez! He's on a mission to prove it's all about the coach.
    #7 MIAMI (1-1) @ MARYLAND (1-1)- On auto
    SOUTH CAROLINA (2-0) @ #9 GEORGIA (1-0)- Georgia looks to continue to ease their freshman QB into the team's playbook.
    FCS WEST (NR) @ #12 CLEMSON (1-0)- Go easy on FCS Cole! lol
    #13 FLORIDA STATE (1-1) @ BOSTON COLLEGE (2-0)- FSU is searching for blodd with 1 loss already on their record.
    #14 NORTH CAROLINA (1-1) @ #10 NOTRE DAME (1-0)- Trap game, UNC will need to bring that run game heavy with this one.
    #23 LSU (2-0) @ TULANE (0-2)- LSU hits the top 25 and battles it with struggling Tulane.

    Scored 49 in the first quarter as everything I did was six. Then I messaged everbody online to see if their was a scoring limit and start taking dives and qb kneels. Good to get a blowout but makes for a tedious last 3 quarters.

    LOL yeah I don't know what our limit is. For the sake of realism I don't think you should have to kneel it for four quarters. 80 against an FCS team isn't 80 against a top 10. But I don't know what our rule is, seeing how I never approach it :)

    Also you messaged me when South Carolina started making their "we're gonna come back on your no matter what" move. So i was a little disgusted with my team at that momeent.

    I try to just not schedule FCS teams if I can at all help it. Sometimes it's not even worth playing the game, haha.

    lol no, I was on auto so Ramirez could play cpu after our disco. I'm gone from Friday thru Tues Night/Wed morning though. Week 4 I have a bye. Hoping to be back in time for week 5

    What made it even worse what that they were a FCS team who tried to run the option. Of course the cpu option is just about impossible to not shut out.

    The Canes survive a major scare, escape Maryland with a 38-31 victory.

    HB Devin Meggett. Interested to get other ACC guys take on this guy. Vs us, he looked like a combination of Barry Sanders and Christian Okoye. Un-friggin-stoppable.
