No human vs. human games this week, so we may be able to roll early. Although I knwo that firesloth is away until Thursday this week anyway.

LSU wins the Golden Boot against Arkansas. Shepard continues to make a strong case for Heisman.

Pitts wins the Backyard Brawl and the Big East this year. Also found out that Dion Lewis is the new holder of most TDs in a career with 79 and hopes to add a few more before his time is up at Pittsburgh.

I'm already on the road. I'll be able to play Wednesday night or sometime Thursday. Sorry...

Dont be sorry, Fire. Blame Shag and Red for taking 10000 years to get their game in.

Oh, I do!

I was hoping the league would roll last night so I could get a late game in.

So, yeah, it's totally their fault.

Boise State survives a scare, but beats Fresno State.

I'm also a bit sad that Jean-Luc Picard won't be playing guard at Boise State.

I saw you jump on last night ,firesloth. I figured I could get my other game in before I rolled the league.I guess it was too late.

Awesome, then I can schedule the ND/RU matchup for Saturday, May 21. Let me know what time that day is good, or if that day is bad, I will open up my schedule elsewhere

We'll have to play that one by ear on Saturday. I'll be home alone with my 2 year old son, who has never slept the night without Mama in the house. It may be easy...or not. I suspect he'll take a nap around 1 pm or so, but after that he'll probably be up until 11:30 pm.

So, if he naps I'll check to see if you're around. If not, I may not be available until very late.

Washington takes down the Cardinal 49-28.

The game was really not that close as we were up 42-7 at the half and I took my foot off the throttle, and had the subs play the 4th.

Maybe we can go Thursday or Friday night? What times are you available?

Houston beats up on Rice in a game that was tough until halfway through the second quarter. Bad news is that Houston is now without our starting HB in addition to our starting QB.

After the game, I took a look at Tech to get ready for the switch. They are worse off than Houston. 2-star rated with an incredibly bad recruiting class so far. I'd like to avoid jumping from a bad situation to worse if possible. Would anyone have a problem with me taking over TCU next season?

I do not mind.

I am also thinking that next season migth be the last for NCAA 11. As by the time we get done with it, it will be time for NCAA 12 to be released. As mentioned before (at least in my head), I would cut the human games from 4 down to 3.

I don't mind Hoppa.

If you are looking to bow out Shag, pass me the reigns, I'll keep this one running.

I am not looking to bow out. I would rather get a full season in before the next game comes out. The only reasonable thing to do would be to cut down on the human games to speed up the process.

Agreed there.

Crazy to think about NCAA 12 being around the corner. I'm open to keeping the league going into the release of 2012 in case it is bad for some reason.

Hey, NCAA has been one of my favorite franchises this generation in spite of the iffy CPU AI and the leaping linebackers. I've probably spent more time with NCAA 09/10/11 than any other game. But I don't trust EA either. Especially given these AI issues. They could try and iron them out and do more harm than good. We'll see.

Did you happen to catch IGN's hands on with NCAA12? The game is looking incredible. The new zone coverage AI seems to be smart now. Instead of having one guy patrolling the sidelines with no one to cover, they will shade back toward the middle. I liked what I saw but unfortunately, the clowns playing were awful at the game so it was hard to gauge the changes.

Last game on the menu is Notre Dame. Once he plays, I will roll the league!

Feel free to sim the game if you want, shag.

LMAO! Boot him, let me take over Notre Dame and see how well they run the Quadruple Option.

I am not going to ruin an undefeated season just because of a sim. When you play you play. We have time before we need to roll the league.

Do it Shag! Bring the PAIN!!! Teach Firesloth not to travel when he is committed to an online video game!

Of course we are kidding....but still....PAIN, BRING IT!!

Shag, be aware *I* wasn't requesting the sim...

I'll be back tonight, although it may be tomorrow before I get this in. A slim possibility of Friday, but no later.

I'm motivated to play this game -- stomping USC is always a good idea, and I've taken enough defeats in the other league that I need to get back on track!

Yeah, shag, I know. I was kidding.

You can request to sim if you want. It's not too late.

lmao, come on USC!!!

Come on USC and many other teams. I looked at that last week when everyone seemingly plays each other and I play Oregon. Can Oregon State get into the national title hunt with 2 losses?
