GWJ BCS League, Season II (360): BCS Bowl Week (League Deadline: 4/4/12 @ 11:59pm EST)

Tennessee dominates Rutgers 22-0. Blocked punt for a safety in the 1st quarter, I was excited to see it because I never have seen a blocked punt in the last 3 editions of this game. I was never able to get a solid drive going until the end of the 2nd half, but there wasn't enough time todrive down the field at a regular pace, so I had to force a bad pass with time winding down, and Tennessee snagged their first of 3 picks. It was a rough game for Rugters, who will try to regroup next week vs Baylor.

It was a solid game by the Vols as I think I had Kush guessing when I was passing or rushing the ball. At least maybe the AI. I also saved the blocked punt so you can see it when you get the chance. That is the first block I have seen without cheating.

The last time I saw a blocked kick of any kind was in madden 06 when I somehow blocked a field goal

I saved it too, as well as your QB draw for a TD, very nice call. I felt like I knew when you were passing and running, several times I yelled that I knew you were passing/running, but my defense just couldn't stop it. I was surprised how many sacks I had, and that I only held you to 4 scoring drives. I was pleased that I was able to force you to punt from time to time. Even the first drive, I took a victory out of holding you to a FG.

I can't WAIT to play Michigan.............................. \sarcasm

I should of saved the FG that I banged of the goal post and have go in. I know that I am predictable. I am trying to get away from that from time to time. Thus the QB draw. I even ran an option play once in the game. Something I need to work on before my next human opponent.

Whoa.

They actually released the updated dynasty website!! I didn't think we'd see that until next year.

EDIT:

Wow, and almost all the pages look to be huge improvements. On the recruiting page, you can see the details of the player on the same page as the full list of targets. You can also see the point totals rather than the percentages. So you know if you're 200 points behind a team instead of 10%.

The stats look better, they allow you to get right into the information about the user teams, etc. Nice!

OK, now I am stoked!!!!! Nice! I can stalk you bastards a little more closely.

Leroy has recruiting left. Leroy and Bonney still have to play. That's what the website tells me. It also tells me Hoppa isn't ready, even though he's played his game and recruited. Weird.

P.S. The picture that comes up when I load this dynasty is awesome – a big old orange-clad LB laying out to block a punt! Sorry, Kush!

Yeah, it has a nice summary of where people are in their recruiting/game playing for the week.

I did have some troubles trying to sort prospective recruits by caliber, but it still feels like an improvement. Let's move these leagues along so we can try out the nuts and bolts!

Although, my next game is against Michigan. I'm not sure I'm ready!!!

EDIT: It also looks like you can set your status (Ready!) using the website. So, if you don't use all of your recruiting time, you can still note that you're ready to move on under the Teams page.

Bonney hasn't gotten back to me since monday.

Don't be sorry, I was as happy to see it happen as Shag was. Of course, I wished it was the other way around, but it was still awesome to see!

Hey Leroy I might be on tonight, if not I will be available Sun morning around 9am or Sunday night anytime say 9pm?

Was he controlling the guy who blocked it, or did the CPU do that?

Watching that replay whoever the up back was needs to be cut. He didn't even try to block the guy.

That was the CPU all the way

In other news: Meet the new website. Same as the old website. Crashed while I was recruiting a MLB in the 2-star league. #ihateeasports

And apparently, all my recruits are in Top 10 stage #notheyrenot #6monthstofixthissh*t

In the last season I had that happen 3 times with the same 4* WR. Hoppa, you and TCU better enjoy that player!

But, I have to admit it was my fault – I kept trying to do it with my laptop's flakey internet connection. The old system (at least) didn't deal with dropped connections gracefully.

I didn't choose a punt block formation. I actually choose dbouble safe return. I agree that the guy should at least be sitting the bench for quite some time after oleing the guy through.

I'm on for the evening. I might be sleeping at 9am Sunday and I'm having people over that night. Maybe 10-11am if we dont meet up tonight?

Michigan wins 28-10. Defense had a couple of ints and the offense was in rhythm.

Looks like the league is 8/8 to roll.

League is rolled.

All right Slothy pooh, when do you want to smack me around. I'm feeling very vulnerable this week after Willie humped my face off.

Damn; wish that could have been me. I'm not so confident; my offense is...well, irregular.

Sunday night any good for you? You available late as usual?

I have plans Sunday. I'm usually available after 9pm during the week if tomorrow night isn't good for you.

BC is ready to roll. Was able to take down Pitt without to many problems.

Tonight is a no-go. Monday is also out for me (unless a miracle occurs), but Tuesday would probably work.

Tuesday 9pm EST works for me.

I probably can't play until at least 10 or 10:30 pm. Later tends to be better.

Just wanted to post this before anyone got any ideas. You will see I started my game with the terps but didnt finish (quit as the kickoff was starting). Reason was I lost track of time. I had tickets to a show tonight and after playing my madden league game, then playing the twostar league game and recruiting, I started to do this leagues things. Looked at the clock and was like " OH CRAP, I SHOULD'VE LEFT 15 MINUTES AGO". Sorry about that. I will get it in tonight or tomorrow.

WVU falls to Maryland. Geno Smith is so unlike Cato. I dont know what it is...maybe it was just marylands defense. I couldnt rush against them and anytime I got into Maryland territory they all became junior Ed Reeds and Champ Baileys. 4ints and no tds. Plus some really questionable AI at play here tonight. They knew every play and when it came to offense, they broke tackles left and right and containment constantly broke down. It was stupid to the point I wanted to smash my controller through my tv.

Another ugly game for Pachall. Interceptions galore and TCU drops to the Sooners. Maybe time for a new QB.
