I decided to get my game in early, and Iowa beats Purdue 45-7. Purdue scored its lone TD late in the 4th on a 90 yard pass play...ugh.

Still, the game was all Iowa. My offense started out roughly; I guess I'm out of practice. However, the defense had already grabbed 3 INTs by the end of the 1st quarter. (There was so much action in the first that I mistook the end of the quarter for the end of the half and threw a 4th down Hail Mary...only to turn the ball over on my own 40 rather than go into the half! D'OH!)

Overall the Iowa defense was stifling, grabbing 5 INTs and sacking Purdue's QB 8 times. With those sacks, Purdue only managed 6 yards rushing.

My QB threw for >350 yards and 5 TDs. Not bad...

Recruiting done!

Four games left to be played...

We're rolling now, I thought Sunday was deadline for some reason. I will start PM'ing people later.

*Double tap*

Let's roll this thing!

I rolled the league, looks like Zell got his nailbiter in before I rolled, so that was good. Wednesday night is the deadline. Let's get crackin.

Season Results are completely updated in the Forum Topic section of this thread.

Just an FYI, if it's just me, Shag, Zell and Firesloth at season's end, we're going to shut it down and concentrate on the 2-star league. I'd like to have 6 owners going to make it an interesting league. I'm also going to do 1 conference next season for all owners.

Iowa beats Michigan (suck it Leroy) 37-12 in a game that was close deep into the 3rd quarter.

Iowa threw 3 first half INTs, but their defense grabbed 2 of their own in the second half. Iowa's defense held Michigan to 1-8 third down conversions while their offense managed 12-17. Michigan had 194 yards of total offense versus 449 for Iowa. Iowa won the time of possession battle by a factor of 2! (21 minutes to 11 minutes.)

On the other hand, I burned the redshirt of a freshman running back because I was down to a third string HB, and his backup was a safety. The freshman was the leading rusher for the team!

it was a hell of a game last week for NC...Deep in the 4th quarter and down by 6 thanks to multiple turnovers and Fla running an amazing ground game. Managed to run a no huddle down the field and scored the go ahead run. It was a crazy game. I wish I could remember more details about it...but I cant. It was a blur of 60 minutes. Also...burned my redshirt on my QB...lost my starter to a sprain and the normal backup was injured during my simmed week against the Vols. Oh well.

Little over a day left in the sim period. I am going to boot Shonuff and Wi11Nick with re-invites if they miss the deadline.

Zell,

When Kush rolls it is me against you. I am available after 10pm any night nowadays. Let me know when you are available to play!

shag

Wow. I almost got Manziel'd.

Iowa needs OT to beat Texas A&M 42-35. But they did win, finishing the season 11-1.

The first two drives made it seem like the game would be easy, but TAMU scored 28 unanswered points to take the half 28-10. Iowa didn't convert a 3rd down until late in the third quarter. And m QB (me) kept throwing to the other team...well, twice. Manziel was sacked 19 times, but he had some big runs so he only finished down -14 yards in rushing. He threw 4 TDs and 2 INTs.

The turning point came early in the 4th when my CB grabbed an INT for a quick 6 points. In OT Iowa ran the ball all but the first play, scoring a TD. TAMU gave up about 3 sacks in a row to seal the win for Iowa.

You'll see one replay that shows the Manziel magic that's evidently coded into the game now...their TE grabbed a short throw and ran for about 80 yards with Iowa defenders grabbing air the whole way.

By the way, the game tying TD I threw was definitely...questionable. They should have challenged.

That should work.

This is just starting to sink in, we might actually roll this league AHEAD of schedule?

Must be the end of the world or something.

I'm sure you've just jinxed us.

That the world will end or that they won't play tonight?

Well, if the world ends early enough, I'm assuming the game won't happen...

We played and I got amoked. My DBS were no match for his receivers. NC 31 GTech 10.

Personally, This was the best night of football I have had in years. I played Kush, firesloth and Zell. If I saw Jayhawker online I would of asked him for a game. I think we should be able to roll in the morning!

My Recruiting is done and everyone was readied up when I logged off. That was a good game shag...I couldnt stop your Tebow/RGIII/Wilson/Vick thing...Perfect coverage on everyone...then BAM...scramble for a 15-20 yard gain...and to be honest, I thought you had me beat halfway through the second quarter when my starting QB, starting HB+KR, slot WR, and second string QB all went down with game ending injuries...thats why I started playing conservative. I thought...if my princesses keep dropping like this, I wont be able to field a team by the 4th quarter. Had to use a red shirted QB to get someone out there that could have a slight chance of tossing the ball. I thought...I have a 11 point lead...just nurse it as best you can...didnt honestly think I would score another point. Anyway, it did turn out to be a fun game. Glad we got to play...even happier that it let us complete the game on the first try.

League is rolled bitches!!!! I believe we all have recruiting left. Let's put a 48 hour cap on that. We roll on Thursday morning.

WooHoo! Doing my recruiting now...I only have 1 scholarship left to give. And only about 4 guys on the board.

And, done. I won't show up as green, but I'm ready to roll.

EDIT: Cool, I get Notre Dame in the Big10 championship game!

Also, not cool: at 11-1 I'm rated below Michigan St. (10-2, who I beat handily) in the coaches' poll and behind Oklahoma (9-2), South Carolina (9-3!!), and USC (10-2).

South Carolina is the 4th team in the SEC East behind Georgia, Tennessee, and Zell's North Carolina. How are they so highly rated?

Man, I can't believe I lost to Louisville, who ended up 6-6.

Some of my players had pretty good years. Mycah Hyde (CB) had 6 INTs, but he also returned punts, averaging ~12 yards a return with 3 punt return TDs on the season! My DT Steve Bigach (which I always read as Bigass) had 19 sacks. The crazy thing is, I spent the whole season controlling a LB or occasionally a safety (which is why MLB James Morris ended up with 79 tackles). So, they must be coverage sacks...

Shag's done with his recruiting. Zell, let me know when yours is done. I will find time to do it today, and we will be able to roll to Championship Week.
