Redhwk, let me know when you are available to play and I will make the effort to get on at that time.

This just in: Army is very bad, but maybe better than last year. ND rolls, 63-7. ND had 622 yards of offense. Cierre Wood (HB) contributed 231 yards rushing and 8 TDs (one through the air). He is motivated to win the Heisman!!

I lit up Ole Miss. Second stringers got some more solid PT.

Kansas wins, but has to overcome six turnovers in their 21-17 road victory over rival Mizzou.

Despite outgaining the tigers 247-71 in the first half, Kansas entered the second half down 10-7. And it was a late half drive that got Kansas on the board. The problem early on was fumbles. A fumbled punt resulted in Mizzou's first FG. Then a fumble by back-up QB Kale Pick was returned for TD. Then Webb started throwing picks, eventually having one returned for a TD in the fourth quarter. Kansas lost the turnover battle 6-0.

On the bright side, the Jayhawks really did move the ball well, outgaining Mizzou 547-241 for the game. On the really not so bright side, Kansas lost their #1 receiver, Bradley McDougald for three weeks.

When is good for you Shonuff?

I'm free most nights after 10pm EST.

When is good for you Shonuff?

I'm free most nights after 10pm EST.

Let's try for Wednesday night around 10:30 p.m.

Have to say that I've been looking forward to this game. I like having Michigan as a rival more than Illinois. Should be a tough game.

Sounds good to me.

I've been looking forward to it also.

After losing Robinson and Toussaint to long term injuries last week I've gone from hoping to maybe pull an upset to hoping to maybe stay competitive. They have been my whole offense this season, but my back ups have some talent. The cupboard isn't quite bare, so I think it'll still be a good one.

This week starts the do-or-die section of my schedule. My next three games are NU, OSU and Pitt. Win 'em all and I get into some serious bowl consideration. Lose 'em all and it's back to the PapaJohn's.com Humanitarian Bowl or something like that. This will be interesting.

On the upside I'm 8-2. On the downside I still suck at recruiting.

Has anyone seen or heard from Redhwk? I know he is busy, but it has been a few days since I have seen him anywhere.

Just shot you a PM back.

SHAG!! I SEE HIM!@!!!

Just finished a great close game with Michigan. Won by a FG. I had no answer for the Michigan running attack and the Michigan crowd didn't help either. GG Handsom!

Well, I competed. The first quarter was looking kind of bad for me, but we settled into a very back and forth offensive chessmatch. Ultimately coming down to turnover margin; I had 2, G-dawg had 1.

I held him to a FG on his last real possession, which increased his lead to 10. I was able to move down the field quickly, scoring with 1:26 left, but I was unable to recover the onside, allowing him to run out the clock after a first down.

Final score
Northwestern - 45
Michigan - 42

Great game you two. Two games left for the week. Boise State Vs. Idaho and Pttsburgh vs. Washington.

Sounds like a great game, guys.

Looks like you aren't playing until Saturday. Guess I have until then D-bag

Hahaha. We need to crank this up. At this poing NCAA is the main thing I'm playing on my 360. I'm starting to write again (journaling, short stories, etc.) and read more, so the 360 is turning into an NCAA Football machine. Maybe Halo.

It is nice top have you back. I hope your trip was nice and sunny.

Welcome back. We missed the Dude icon. I did at least.

Yeah, I missed the icon.

One game left and we can move on.

I will see you at 9pm EST Redhwk!

shag, my wife forgot we had our game tonight and double booked my services. We are running out now to go pick our dogs up from Pet Smart, would closer to 7 be OK with you? Really I'm free to get the game in any time after we get home.

No problem. I am online right now. I will wait for you.

Good game shag. Like we exchanged in messages afterward, totally would've/could've been a different game if Lewis had not been knocked out. I was struggling to stop him in the first half, 8 carries for 73 yards, that's a 9.1 yard average.

My HB Polk really surprised me, he is very fumble and injury prone, thankfully his only fumble was right no the sideline and it fell out of bounds.

My 3rd string QB really managed the game well, 13-18 for 129yds and 2 TDs and most important no sacks which is my achilles. I'm surprised I got the 2nd TD to go through between your two defenders, you LB knocked my guy off his slant and he never started his crossing pattern which is what I expected.

Final Washington 21 - Pittsburgh 13

Good game. Lewis getting hurt definitely hurt me as Graham could do nothing. You had a couple of crucial stops when I went for it on 4th down. Back to the drawing board as the league has rolled.

for ncaa 12 is clemson, air force, or oklahoma taken?

No, no, and no. Please be Clemson so stupid undefeated BC can't sneak into a shot at a NC.

Uh oh no one has Any of them...hmmm well if I start going to clemson I'll be them but if I start going somewhere else it will be Oklahoma for the texas game air force if I really want to risk it
