How does Thursday after 6pm sound?

Snagged two 4* insta-commits. I have three 5* players interested but not enough to pursue. In the first league, I had three 5* players at #1. Dagnabit.

Sounds good. I will see you then.

prob play tonight before bed

ND bests Iowa 38-31 in third OT. Shouldn't have been that close.

My season started out horribly, as ND threw a pick six on the second play of the game. I had another one in the fourth quarter...that on was worse: I was driving in for a score from the 15, and the INT return went for about 98 yards.

In my defense, I confused my receivers and pushed the wrong button on the last one. I also managed to catch up with the guy at about the 50, but my player outran him, and I couldn't get turned around to tackle the bastard!

In the end I was able to stop Iowa on three successive plays from inside the 4 yard line during the last OT. The last play was run from about the 1 inch line. They elected to pass after getting stopped from the 1 the play before. Everyone was covered, and the QB was sacked as he attempted to escape the pocket. Good way to end the game...even if it did come 3 OTs later than it should have.

Oh, and somehow my QB was awarded player of the game...even though he provided 14 of the opponent's 24 regulation time points through INTs.

Technically, if you're the one controlling the QB, didn't YOU provide 14 points to Iowa?
Just sayin.............

League Deadline: Saturday, October 1st @ 5pm

Right before my annual Texas Holdem tournament. I get to beat Shag in NCAA on Thursday, and Poker on Saturday

Poor Shag, so much losing in such a short time.

Yeah right. We will have to wait and see what happens.

Well I am on Shag's side because Kush talks mare trash about Michigan than anyone. :p

This will be the tie breaker in this long fued between Kush and I. Pitt and Rutgers split the games 2 and 2 in last year's edition. Let's see what happens with NCAA12.

Good luck Kush. You are going to need it!

I'll probably play my game on Thursday.

I can't wait until I play Notre Lame. It'll be nice to get a win under my belt.

How have you been Counselor? Feels like forever since you've posted. Would you like to join my NHL team?

Yeah, I see you had to take a higher rated school to beat me
(Game on)

LMAO. terrible.

holy crap...That was a horrible game for my QB....I throw for 300+ yards and 3 Td's, but also 6 INT's....>-< lucky for me, my RB was the player of the game, rushing 21 times for 220yrds and 2 TDs.

My D was on top of their game though, I held them to just 17 points (10 of which were the results of turnovers)

Then maybe *I* was the MVP of the game!

It is sound logic.

I've been good, but not playing many games or checking GWJ very much. My girlfriend takes most of my time these days, and that's still a good thing.

I'll join your NHL team, but I don't know that I'll ever have time to play. I'm relegated to a few hours a week, at best, at this point. Work is getting awfully busy too.

I'll shoot an invite the next time I am on. I also saw Kush playing NHL as well. Would you like an invite Kush? Anyone else? :p

If you ever want to play, just hop in my xbox party.

I'm in Counselar's boat as far as availability, but I am down for an invite. I am also not very good, as this is the first hockey game I've owned in a while, and I just started playing last night. Went to 3 Targets before I found NHL12........................................so I can get the buy 1, get 1 half off....................................I also bought Just Dance II for the Wii.

I SWEAR it's for my wife, honest.

Actually, I suppose I qualify as the MVP for BOTH teams...

Send me an invite. I can play more than Kush and Counslear, but that also depends on getting the kids to bed.

Cool. 3-4 of us have been playing together for years so. We are a pretty casual group. We only get serious at playoff time but we lost in the 3rd round last night

I cannot proise anything, but some decent defense and passing. Scoring is a little light.

Then you will fit in perfectly

Tennessee rolls into Piscataway and rolls over Rutgers 34-10. The defense was steller as it had 8 sacks and 4 INTs. One of them went all the way for a TD. The running game was solid for the Volunteers as it ran for 100 yards and 3 scores.
