That's a good woman you got there.

Yeah, Woo Hoo! I predict Mich. St. takes out their frustrations out on Purdue in a big way, Stanford gets upset, and Hawaii has a rough first half after a 15 hour flight to Pittsburgh. I'm making the players go to class on Friday before playing in the game Saturday afternoon.

I'm gonna make idle my lady friend this week.

Stanford?!? Well, hopefully I'll be able to score more than one touchdown in this game.

Hopefully my defense shows up for the whole game instead of just 2 quarters of it.

I posted a link to an interesting discussion over at OS in NCAA 12 thread. Basically, using LT while passing adds elevation to your pass, including on bullets. The caveat is that it also produces longer wind-up animation. This could help avoid a lot of those batted balls over the middle.

Schedule and deadline are updated at the top of the thread.

RUTGERS IS ON THE BOARD!!!!! 2-star kicker, Kareem Davis.

They did. That would of been a 1 star kicker last year!

I need to slow down during recruiting:

Coach Prestige came up for 1 recruit (D+), and I meant to click "Change Topic", only I clicked "Compare". I got 2 points.

*EDIT*
Recruiting done, website didn't crap out on me once. Groovy.

And there is your new and improved website!

I haven't messed with the website functions yet. Should I play my AI game in Super Sim mode?

You can try. I disabled use of the Super Sim in this league

So I can't play my AI games online in the league?

Leroyog wrote:

Nope, because you get a 7-day trial for Super Sim, and then it costs money. I don't want people to have an advantage that others don't, which is why all time savers were disable. If it was a free option, I would have left it enabled.

I didn't know you had to pay for it. Eff them. I can play at home.

Anything to make a buck, right?

Bite your forked tongue. Now you freakin' jinxed us.

LOL!!! Of course, I'm the one on the bye so I WANT this to be a quick week.

The quicker Week 3 goes, the longer Week 4 will be. Hansome and Firesloth are on vacation starting Friday. Hansome plays Zellbrige in Week 4, so even if we get done tonight or tomorrow, it probably won't be enough time for a HvH game until he gets back (8/22). There's no pressure for anyone to finish their game. However, if everyone plays tonight, I won't wait for Monday to play my game.

I thought we agreed, "No more vacations till this league is boring"

I kid I kid, I hope everyone has a long fun vacation.

I'm going to OBX from Sept 10-16

What is OBX?

I'm not even going on vacation!!! Although, I am going to Rio de Janeiro. Feel sorry for me, though -- it's winter down there, so it'll only be in the 80s during the day.

Probably some town in Jersey with lost of strip malls and hair spray.

Outer Banks, NC. What's a bigger vacation spot? Jersey Shore or Buffalo?

Buffalo Wings or dirty needles.....tough call. :p

...yep...
