    You know, in week 6 I couldn't get into practice mode. My xbox would freeze up before it loaded. Then in week 7 I was able to get in just fine. Haven't tried in week 8 yet, but if that's what's happening to you, you're not alone. I'm glad it loaded in week 7. I was thinking my disc might've gotten scratched or something.

    MTSU jumped out to a 14-7 lead before accepting their weekly ass-kicking. John Warren knocked out the mtsu rb flr the season, while forcing a fumble for a TD in the 2nd quarter. It was all over after that play. Utah State wins 62-30. QB Adrian Sapp is potg going 14-22 for 273 yds 3 tds and 1 int

    I need more input on practice mode. Whenever you guys get back on, see if it'll let you in.

    forgot to post this in the last weeks thread

    ULL - 59
    ASU - 31

    me and blondie tried to get a full game in but there was some absolutely terrible lag so after going up by 14 after being down 14 I ended up finishin up against the comp. HB Titus Cox ran for a couple TDs in the first qtr and sat after the end of the 1st. Arkansas transfer and starting QB broke his wrist and will miss 9 weeks, maybe returning for the bowl game. This marks the second straight season that the Ragin Cajuns lose their starting QB for the season. I want to keep Josh Wrights red shirt so for now I'm gonna roll with The lefty Corey Richardson, the QB who was injured last season.

Anyways, its been fun but my time here is up. Just not fun for me anymore. Its a great league but its just not for me any longer.

    #7 Western Michigan 55 @
    #13 Army 42

    This matchup was decided by a 2 point conversion with under a minute to go last season but it wouldn't be near the thriller this time. Army jumped out to a 21-3 lead with 7:33 after Adrian Pollock threw a 92 yard pick six. Things got a little crazy after this as 49 points were scored in the quarter and the score at the half was 35-31 Army. This was probably the longest half I've ever played at roughly 40 minutes in real time.

    The 2nd half my defense finally stepped and only allowed one score on a 35 yard TD pass where Army Jason Merrit used his height to out leap two Western Michigan defenders and raced in. My offense was able to put up 24 which wasn't as much as the 2nd quarter but it was enough to get a win. TO's played a huge part as I was able to force 4 to Army's 2 which eliminated possessions for him.

    It was a hard hitting game and Western Michigan lost starting RB Cameron King for the season with a partially torn MCL and #1 WR and Impact Player Lucas Wilkerson for 3 weeks with a strained shoulder.
