    Do you guys have familiarity with your teams? I picked the Aztecs because of their uniforms....I have no clue what their roster even looks like.

    I don't really care about the tourney, I need to get familiar with the team I stole from you.:)

    nice start.

    Honestly, you are one of my favorites to win it all. Unfortunately, another one of them happened to be in my group :(

    I think Wick has a chance to win it all and he's in my group. I heard him say in the CB he was 9-0 in ranked games

    Interceptions seem to be rampant in the game so far, I see tons of guys in the chatbox complaining about them. I thought the new passing system was supposed to make throwing easier? Or are people being too aggressive with it early?

    I picked my team based off of what Phil Steele's mag said about FIU. That and they have a pretty solid OL. Wish I could have found a better QB, but he is good running the spread. I like how the spread works on inside and outside runs this year.

    I just looked at the SDSU roster - solid at most positions but there are no real exciting players anywhere. It may be time to bring the whygodwhy1111 no huddle 2 TE offense out of retirement.

    It was more of whatever hit my DB's hands just stuck. I only had about 1 dropped interception. It's probably the Heisman setting.

    I think I may be one of 3 teams in the tourney not running some version of the spread or option.....I'm likely going to experiment tonight with them at least once to try them out before I just start fiddling around with UGA.

    It's hard to find a good sub :4stars:team that can run an under center offense. IMO

    I probably should have looked at the teambuilder site before picking a team. SDSU has a decent balanced QB, a decent HB who isn't real fast and big WR's who aren't very quick. Not sure if that's a setup that will spell success in a user game in 2013.....

    That and they run the 4-3, which I used to use exclusively before I fell in love with the 3-4 last game cycle....

    Chalk up a Big L for the AM group. SteamboatReb got me earlier tonight 20-17. I tied it up late but left some time and he found a wide open WR cutting across the middle for a big gain with time dwindling down. FG as time expired. Im having an identity crisis with the new game. Im trying to run the spread and feels very foreign to me. Gonna be a work in progress I think.
