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

Holy crap...WVU barely escapes with the win over NC state 49-47. I lost my DE and they just started running the ball all over me. No joke...NC State was averaging 12 yrds a run. They also had a receiver my corner just could not cover...it was like a young Calvin Johnson playing against Cassius Vaughn or something..it was bad. It also didnt help that their corners were mind readers. I threw 6 ints...SIX! 4 of which (not kidding here) were in the endzone. I wanted to curl up in the fetal position by that last one. NC state has a monster kicker too...he hit two FGs from 56yrds out.

Looks like we are waiting on Kush!

Looks that way. Everyone thank Shag, I'm punishing you all by waiting to play!!!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Actually, it's not because of him, I have softball this morning, and other things going on today, but I will try to get it in tonight.

You're lucky I didn't text you 3 in the morning when I was up with my daughter. I started to think since I was up, you should be up too with your daughter too.

Please Kush play tonight!! I want to play!!

Sorry, I was very busy yesterday, didn't get a channce to play. The good news is, I am free to play tonight! We should roll between 8:30-9pm ET tonight, FYI.

Leroy,

When are you available to play our game after Kush rolls forward?

Tonight works. My week is a teensy bit sketchy what with buying a house and all.

Oh man, I hate playing USC....almost as much as I love beating them!

ND beats their hated rival USC in a defensive struggle, 24-10. The final tally should have been 17-10, but in an attempt to kill the clock, I got lucky and got hit from behind as I tried to dive to the ground at the 1 yard line. Oh well.

ND forced 2 fumbles and an INT while amassing 6 sacks against USC. Stephon Tuitt, the least famous of the front 3, had 3 sacks alone! ND forced 2 redzone fumbles, including one at the 2 yard line that set up the winning score.

The game wasn't decided until 2:30 or so left in the game, when HB Cierre Wood broke the tie by capping a 98 yard ND drive with a 72 yard rush for a TD. In the end, Wood had 3 TDs and 172 yards rushing.

WooHoo! This is payback for last season (yeah, USC sorta' kicked my ass last year). This is a tough CPU team. Toughest I've played in a long time.

Oh, and that last game killing drive featured a pass on 3rd-and-16. I should have run the ball and taken their last TO, letting my defense finish the 17-10 game, but I audibled to a long pass and through, what the heck? They didn't cover it well. For once.

League is rolled, FYI. Deadline is June 11th @ 11:59pm ET.

Sorry Leroy. I was out with the kids. I will try and catch you online one evening after 9pm.

Uh, Kush, you're a little slow on the announcements there.

As if we didn't know that already!

Tennessee pays bribe for #2 Ranking!

There was no bribe. The nation screamed for another #1 vs. #2 match up before the bowls. So the media and the coach's granted them that wish.

Always trying to find the conspiracy in everything, Kush!

Man, ND's schedule was brutal this year again. My last four games are against #9 USC, NR Iowa, #5 Penn State, and #2 Tennessee (soon to be either #1 or #22 depending on this week). Throw in #1 Michigan and top-15 rated Boston College, and it's been a good season! Curse you, Kush!

Most schedules are nice and tough...but see, Leroy only has to play me, whereas I have to play *him*. That makes his schedule MUCH easier!

Hey, damnit, I'll whine when I feel like it! Actually, I was thinking this morning what fun it was to win a tough one against USC rather than one of the typical blow outs. That game actually felt tense and not cheap. Good defense, but not in the cheap ways you sometimes see it (there were no 7' high jumping LB INTs, for example).

I was looking at your upcoming schedule, and I don't envy you with Michigan, Notre Dame (easy), and Georgia all still on your schedule. Yeah, have fun with that!

Kush was nice enough to saddle my human opponent games at the end of the year. So this next stretch will either be very good or very bad. I am hoping to win 2 of 3 against the human opponents. Plus you have to throw in a possible ACC Championship game against willhouse, who is at #16 right now.

Plus you can whine all you want.

I think I just did.

That's a tough draw. On the other hand, if I beat Iowa and Penn St., I have to play a rematch with Leroy in the Big 10 championship. I'd say I was looking forward to it, but I'm not confident after my last outing (which was really 7 quarters of smackdown given our disconnected game).

The XBox was nice enough to schedule all your conference games at the beginning of your schedule. I had very little to work with.

You should be used to hearing that, I bet your wife says that to you all the time

At least she is getting something. I cannot say your wife is getting anything since she kicked you to the couch.

I was happy that most of my human games were early but who do I have to pay to get a good top ten ranking?

Just Paypal me $300, and I will take care of it.

I can't complain. When you win back to back National Titles, you are bound to get a tough schedule thrown at you.
