    I have realized I don't know much about most of you. In real life I'd probably keep it that way, but for league purposes I'm intrigued. So why don't you tell everyone about yourself. Bonus points for pics.

    Name: Ed

    Age: 33

    Gamertag and why: BigKing, from the song "How many times" off of ICP's Great Milenko album.

    Locations: Pittsburgh, PA only a few miles from both Heinz Field and PNC Park

    Occupation/School: Operations Manager at a bank, Graduate of Indiana Pennsylvania University (IUP) in 2000, Criminology Major

    Wife/Kids: Neither, thank goodness. However the live-in girlfriend does hate the Xbox and this league. I have two pugs, Lilly & Rocky

    Team and why you picked them: Florida State, because Pitt sucked. I wanted a better team that wasn't a top tier program. Who knew how quickly I'd be able to turn them into the power house that they've become.

    My favorite things: Binge Drinking, Copenhagen, Porn, Sleeping in, and in that order.

    I'll try to throw up a pic or two as long as nobody goes Homo about how good looking I am.

    I love my family. That takes up most of my time, well that and work. My biggest hobby is Clemson football. I enjoy playing NCAA 12 but usually only get to play when the wife and kids are in bed. I really like being apart of a great group of friends who play in a dynasty that can sustain throughout NCAA releases. I don't like to lose but do often, especially versus users. :)

    We went up to Clemson to get the "Spiller For Heisman" posters and got to meet Dabo and got a personal tour of the facilities. (Long Story)​

    Name: Jandy

    Age: 20

    Gamertag and why: Cpt Newb because I'm pretty much a big newb.

    Locations: Toledo, OH

    Occupation/School: Currently in my third year at the University of Toledo. I'm a Marketing major hoping to get into sports marketing after I graduate.

    Wife/Kids: Neither

    Team and why you picked them: Iowa because Michigan isn't very good and their future is looking bleak. I wanted to join Jbek in the Big 10, and since he wanted to be Penn State, I couldn't really be a team in the Leaders division. Iowa should be getting their sixth star after this year, and recruiting with them should be a lot of fun.

    My favorite things: Cleveland sports (unfortunately), Kentucky basketball, and being a college student and the lifestyle that comes with it.

    It's good to have you on board Jandy. Jbek should have a pretty nice team as well. It's nice to see gwill having some competition in recruiting. I'm sorry for the Cleveland thing but I'm thinking this year my Steelers and your Browns should be pretty even games.

    Idk man, with Big Ben and that Steeler D, I'm not sure if the Browns have a shot. Especially when Colt's throwing it like 50 times a game

    I'm glad to be here though, I can already tell this is going to be a good time. The Hawkeyes era has begun.

    Name: John (Jbek if you wish)

    Age: 20

    Gamertag and why: Jjjbek , some people call me JJ (John Jerabek), and some call me jbek, so I decided to combine them.. and no, Its not because I stutter :p

    Locations: Toledo, OH

    Occupation/School: I do bitch work for my dad here and there, and I am a full-time student at UT. I took a semester off so Jandy is a bit ahead of me (@Jandy = :doodie:)


    Wife/Kids: nada

    Team and why you picked them: Penn State. Its my team, I have only played one dynasty where I wasn't the nitwits, and that didn't go so well. Just somethin about those blue and whites, Happy Valley, and the tradition of monster Linebackers. I was born in PA as well, more importantly.

    My favorite things: playing music, sex, hiking, mary jane, rock climbing, binge drinking, pickup-sports, pondering existence, hockey, football, winning.

    Name: Cory

    Age: 27

    Gamertag and why: BigCudyCud, because I've been called "Big Guy" all my life...I'm sort of large (6'2, 220) AND my friends mother (from Beijing) couldn't pronounce "Cory" correctly so she kept trying to force me snickers ice cream bars and calling me "Cudy" (cuh-dee...with the U sounding almost like an O...lol). My friends have called me that ever since High School.

    Locations: Philly Philly, home of the greatest, most ridiculous sports fans you'll ever meet

    Occupation/School: E-Commerce Analyst at the all mighty KableTown aka Comcast. Graduate in 2006 of Temple University with a now-useless Journalism Degree.

    Wife/Kids: Neither, they both kind of scare me :), although I'm assuming I will put the girl who puts up with my video game habit and penchant for sports injuries into one of these categories soon lol.

    Team and why you picked them: USC, because during my 4 years of college 2002-2006 they were the most dominant and fun to watch college football team in the nation. I'll never forget the Fresno St. game, which we all thought was going to be a ridiculous upset.....and Reggie Bush stopped on a dime right in front of the sideline and made his defender go flying by him. I didn't pick Temple this year b/c their prestige was 2 stars and I couldn't go through another year in Overdrive losing every user game and trying to play w/ sub-par talent (although Bernard Pierce should easily be in the 90's overall...f u EA).

    My favorite things: Football, Training MMA, Video Games, All Things Philadelphia, Boobies & Bootys, Electronics, Playing Music.

    Pics will prob come soon.

    It would be a good idea to keep off the mountains for at least a week after you play FSU. I can't be held responsible for your emotional state.

    Oh, and Penn State sucks. Hail Pitt.

    First, I'm 6'2 220 and I've never considered myself a "Big Guy".

    Second, Philly fans are the worst fans in the entire world. Your city deserves to loose all their sport teams, and besides the Phillys they all suck anyway.

    Third, I'm with you on the Boobies & Bootys.

    Lol 6'2 and 220 lbs is nowhere close to small - I'm easily the biggest person in most situations I find myself in.....I guess it depends on the type of 220 lbs?

    Also Pittsburgh is our little baby cousin off to the west, so I'd expect you to not consider yourself to be large :)

    Well, Penn state does sort of suck this year. Great Defense, but shitty offense... lolz hail Spitt.

    Any way we could schedule a home and home? I'll pint you in the direction of the nearest mountain after our game so you can spend some alone time regaining your sanity, and so the mountain goats can stay hydrated for weeks from your puddles of tears :D

    I cannot vocalize how much I hate Penn State in real life.....Temple handed them the game this year on a motherf$&%ing platter (although it could be argued PSU did the same)....but more than anything I hate the Philly-area PSU fans with ZERO connection to Penn State. Such Frauds.

    Gamertag and why: Sir Magoo 360 – Some of who may remember Mr. Magoo and his thick glasses and him being blind so when I first started Xbox live I was playing FPS games a lot and thought it would be funny to be shot by Mr. Magoo, but it was taken so this is what I came up with.


    Locations: Illinois


    Occupation/School: Estimator/Project Manager, Graduated College 1996 Accounting Major

    Wife/Kids: Both, My wife which is the best wife in the world, and (2) girls 17 yrs old and 11 years old.

    Team and why you picked them: Alabama because I like the style of play, smash mouth run the ball and hit you till you bleed defense. I like the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens for same reasons. St Louis Cardinals (Go CARDS!!!!)


    My favorite things: Hunting, Fishing, Woodworking, Cars, Playing Video Games

    I will get some pics up.

    Depending on if I get Iowa on the B1G schedule next year, I would play two users OOC... But if Jandy and Gwill are on the schedule... just one OOC is good

    We play as many user games as possible in Overdrive. I try to keep it even for all teams but that isn't always possible, but it is more fun when we are playing each other not just CPU.
