    Players Leaving

    List of everyone who is leaving for reasons other than Graduation. If your team isn't listed, no one left other than your Seniors

    Miami (OH)
    D. Jackson, SO QB, transfer to Eastern Michigan

    Louisiana Tech
    D. Morrow, SO HB, Transfer to UNM
    J. Crowe, SO FS, Transfer to UL Monroe

    Utah State
    T. Bergstrom Jr RT, left for Pro Draft
    G. Robles SO QB, Transfer to North Texas
    B. B. Bennion SO FS, Transfer to Hawaii

    I was not able to get a list of students who transfered into schools..it only allowed me to look at mine (namely...none) So here's hoping all of you who won't play me in two years got some really good transfers! ;)

    Well..considering the real ball state will likely have none...I'd say thats an improvment!

    You make it sound like having an all american is a bad thing. I had a total of 0 on All-Conference, much less All-American. lol

    considering one of my potential recruits is better than he is...if he wants to have a chance of sniffing the field, then yeah :)

    10 scholarships is a gift. As long as you improve your teams prestige you will be better off getting more players the next year. I find it difficult to find 2 star players look like they belong on a football field. Plus next year all the recruits will be better because of the patch.

    Looking through my stats I noticed something unsurprising, but pretty depressing:

    My team combined for 44 dropped passes this year (Average of 3.5ish a game), with 3 of my receivers being among the top 10 of all NCAA receivers in the dropped passes category.

    Someone needs to buy my boys some gloves! :)

    I can not look it up right now. But I assume you were close to the league lead in Pass attempts, and dead last in rushing attempts. You may want to consider a drop per pass attempt ratio to determine how bad your team was at catching. Additionally were there worse WRs getting more targets?

    I was probably pretty high up in pass attempts, but the people I played in user games could tell you that my guys catch like offensive linemen. Envy sent me a message immediately after our game mentioning how my guys were dropping wide open passes.

    I rushed as much as possible, but my playbook is nothing but shotgun and there's almost no way to run out of shotgun when you don't have a dual threat QB and your guys can't block long enough for your running back to get the ball in his hands without getting hit.

    As far as the worse WR's getting more targets, all of my WR's are very closely rated. From #1 to #4 the ratings range from 79 to 71.

    My #2 receiver had the most catches and yards,
    My #3 receiver had the second most catches, beating out my #1 receiver by 4 but trailed him in yards,
    My #1 receiver had the third most catches and the second most yards,
    and My #4 receiver was fourth in both categories.

    #1 guy only had 2 drops, averaging one drop for every 20 catches. He was never a problem.

    #2 had 9 drops, averaging one drop for every 7 catches.

    #3 had 11 drops, averaging one drop for every 4 catches.

    #4 had 14 drops, averaging one drop for every 2.8 catches.


    My RB had 108 attempts for 415 yards, averaging close to 4.0 per carry, but that's highly exaggerated by a couple of big runs in one game. Take two runs out and I probably averaged about 2 yards per carry with him.

    Conservative catching?

    there are some good non-qb running plays out of Shotgun. As well as some speed and load options work well with slow qbs ( turn up field and pitch ).

    I like Running plays in shotgun where the RB is in Flex. Allows you to run between the tackles because the RB gets the ball moving forward instead of to the side.

    Against the computer, its tough because they cheat. You many need to use your R-Stick down audilbes, so you can run in spread against something that is not a base defense.

    my top WR and best player on my offense (77 overall) had 57 catches 8 drops. which is 65/8 attempts per drop. He droped one ball of every nine that hit his hands.


    my TE ( 11 catches, 4 drops ) dropped one for every 3 that hit his hands

    my 2nd WR graduated so i can not see his stats.

    3rd WR (7 catches, 2 drops) dropped one for every 4.5 that hit his hands.


    our players suck, they drop balls. Especially when they get hit.

    I know that we have crappy teams, it's not like I was saying it was the end of the world. I just noticed it and thought it was interesting.

    Also, I was under the impression that using game plan and commitment stuff was kind of frowned upon on this site, so I'm sure conservative catching would have been a big help, as would aggressive d-line and a bunch of other game plan-related things. Are we actually allowed to use that stuff? If so, maybe we should consider that stuff not being allowed.


    It's not like I am clueless about what I'm doing here or that I'm not fully aware that we are using crappy teams.

    Would it be better if I didn't comment on any team happenings?

    lol no,

    Its fine, sorry if i came off critical.

    You do have an extreme number of drops. But proportional. All the other stuff was intended as tips.


    I don't use aggressive D-line or run commits. I am unsure of the league rules on them. Conservative catching is allowed and I recomend you use it.

    Leauge rules on them are basically "don't sbuse them"...particuarly the aggressive D-line. Even after the patches, it is still hard to pull people off sides.

    I always turn conservative catches on...get tired of almost catching the ball after three steps with it and having it knocked out. conservative catch reduces that alot.


    and always comment on how teams are doing...one, its theonly way we'll know if theres problems (likes drops are horribly excessive across the leauge or something) and two, it means theres foruum chatter, which is good!

    if you have problems with drops, seems like user catches drop less. You might try that aswell.

    I thought this was interesting so I decided to look at my stats since I was gone during the off-season.

    #1 WR graduated so don't know what his stats were.

    Barry Huntley, my #2 WR had 14 drops and 51 receptions so that's 14/65 drops/attempts so about 1 out of every 4.5 attempts was dropped.

    He had pretty bad hands though he was by far the most physically gifted player on my team being 6'1" with a 95 speed the man can stretch the field. 1134 yards receiving, 9tds. He's the #1 WR as a senior this year.


    #3 garduated.

    #4 dropped 3/19.

    #5 dropped 5/10.

    My tight end, Kyle Nelson, graduated. He was the man though. All-WAC
