GWJ BCS League, Season III (360): Conference Championships (League Deadline: 7/3/12 @ 11:59pm ET)

Lets give it the old college try tonight....lololol...see what I did there?

Good game Fire. Michigan wins. We are ready to roll.

I'm signed up. I see what the problem was. My guess is that the fact that I had a 239 dy old invite sitting there when I booted may have caused an issue or two. Turns out I didn't need the password.

I did go for the Big 12, and took Kansas because I am a homer. I considered taking OSU, but I went back to old reliable.

It says I am due to play Texas. I may or may not have time tonight. If the league needs rolling, move on without me this week and I will slide in. If I have time to play tonight, whatever week we are on won't matter all that much. So don't let me hold up the current week if it is ready to roll.

For now, I'm off to see my kid play some jazz tonight.

Kansas?? You should have dropped into the 2* league!!

Good to have you back! I am likely not going to get to play my game tonight, so you'll have at least another day.

I uploaded two funny plays that turned out well for ND in this game. The first was the TD at the end of the half that ricocheted off of a Michigan defender before settling in the hands of one of my players.

The second was the INT...my guy grabbed a real nice INT and then, because I must have pushed some random button, he faked a lateral. Well, from the viewers perspective it looks like he grabs the ball, then holds it out in front of the WR to tease him, then rumbles in for a TD. I have to say, that was the best run I made all night.

That pic 6 was pretty sweet. My favorite play for me was the Justice Hayes TD run.

League rolled by the way.

Willie and I tried to play a couple times but the EA servers were being uncooperative with lag.

I tried to get my game in late last night. But the wife came down because she couldn't sleep and needed to eat something. She has had a cough, and took some cough medicine with codeine that was messing with her stomach.

That resulted in me quitting the game and watching The Bachelorette with her.

Will get my game in today. I only had one possession last night, and there was no score. But I did miss a FG.

Well, I did actually get my game in last night. Nothing like not being able to sleep...

ND bests MSU 31-24. It shouldn't have been that close, but I was stuffed twice on 4th-and-short plays in the redzone. One those was on the goal line, and it lead to a Spartan drive that went 99 yards...for a FG.

Crazy plays all around, though. There are videos of two TDs by my TE that couldn't be more different. In one he is as covered as can be, catches the ball, then powers through three defenders for the TD. In another the CPU called an all-out blitz which left the TE all-out-by-himself for a TD.

Oh, and ND blocked a FG to end the half!

Remember when they smooshed you in the first season?

Oh, the pain...the pain!!!

Welcome back, Jayhawker! Hehehehe....

Aaarrgh!!!

Took me awhile to get the offense clicking. Three INTs kept me in the game. I scored late to pull with 20-13 with 2:22 left. I elected to kick-off and use time outs. A 75 yard TD run pretty much demolished that strategy.

Jordan Webb got the Jayhawks close pretty quick with a good deep ball, but then through a stupid INT to kill off any chance of making a comeback.

Frickin' Bevo!

I have to say, it felt good getting back into it, and it is good to be back.

Michigan beats Boston College.

I let this game go and I know exactly where I did it to. With 2 yards to go on third down I should have ran it instead of trying the WR screen you were having a problem stopping my running game all day. That play cost me the game/

I thought it was the Robinson TD catch where you went for the strip instead of the stop.

Right after you stuffed that screen I said I just lost this. If I convert that with a run I can chew more clock. By the end I was just trying to get some kind of stop on defense because they were not doing anything. I think my Western team could beat my BC team.

Nah, you just coach a good game and talent pretty much won both of our games.

All are ready but Zell...are you still recruiting Zell?

unsure yet, I have plans penciled in that night, but I should be able to make it, but will let you know if anything changes...

Willhouse – this week is likely to be ugly until the weekend. I'll let you know if it gets any better, but I can't see doing this before Saturday or (more likely) Sunday.

Ok
