    I guess the worst thing you can have at the end of the season is a bye, or lack of a CCG to play, because #1 and #2 were idle and got unceremoniously jumped by #3 and #4, both who had games to play and won semi-impressively. Snow's bitchfest pays off, he got to play the CPU and won convincingly, launching Arkansas into the #1 slot. Arkansas will play Arizona State for the MNC, while Notre Dame and Oklahoma State got relegated to the Sugar and Fiesta Bowls, respectively.


    =============== #6 Clemson Tigers (11-2) ===============
    Last week, Clemson won 13-0 against Virginia Tech (9-4).
    #9 Clemson will face #11 Alabama in the Orange Bowl®.

    =============== #17 Iowa Hawkeyes (8-4) ===============
    #19 Iowa will face #10 Georgia in the Capital One Bowl.

    =============== #4 Oklahoma State Cowboys (11-1) ===============
    #3 Oklahoma State will face #9 Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl.

    =============== Miami Hurricanes (5-7) ===============

    =============== #5 Nebraska Cornhuskers (12-1) ===============
    Last week, Nebraska won 19-13 against Penn State (7-6).
    #5 Nebraska will face #7 USF in the Rose Bowl.

    =============== #19 Texas A&M Aggies (8-4) ===============
    #20 Texas A&M will face Texas in the AT&T Cotton Bowl.

    =============== #1 Arkansas Razorbacks (11-2) ===============
    Last week, Arkansas won 48-0 against Georgia (11-2).
    #2 Arkansas will face #3 Arizona State in the BCS National Championship.

    =============== #16 Florida State Seminoles (9-3) ===============

    =============== #3 Arizona State Sun Devils (12-1) ===============
    Last week, Arizona State won 31-10 against Oregon (11-2).
    #4 Arizona State will face #1 Arkansas in the BCS National Championship.

    someone is pissssed :lol:. And given that the guy never even showed up last night, it was play the CPU or not play at all. I would much rather have played a human, that was all sorts of lame.

    He showed up later on, right after you finished, wanted your # to text you to play. I had assumed you had offered that sort of information already, given all of the givens.

    Yo man, if you want to accuse me of lying or not doing everything reasonable to get this fool to play, Go ahead, don't beat around the bush. Don't try this bull**** on me. And I'm sorry, starting a game at midnight on a work night, an hour after he said he was going to show up, is bull****. Send me your frustrations in a PM if you really do have a problem, but I don't want to deal with any passive aggressive bull****.

    He's not random, he's Tini's friend :lol:

    My point was that there are ways to work with someone to schedule a game, and there are ways not to. You should always A) send a friend request, so you know when the other person is online/offline; B) send out a msg that says "I can play on X, Y, and Z" and the other person should say "I can play on Y and Z but also A and B" so that, within TWO msgs, you know approximately when you're going to play, and have a backup plan; C) and/or people will give you their cell# and say "Text me when you can play" type stuff. I can tell, without placing blame anywhere, that at least most, if not all, of the above did not go on between Snow and UGA. UGA got booted because he wasn't responding to me consistently and he hasn't been as engaged across other dynasties altogether (Brak constantly messages me asking if I know what's going on with him). Snow has been involved in way too many of these dramas to be compeltely blame-free. I am a little irked that I hear Snow complain about this and that when I field alot of concerns about his communication too. But I sided with him for reasons consistent with my other Commisoral decisions, even though it cost me (my team) big time. Is that direct enough?

    Hey commish, sounds like you are making a lot of assumptions. I did A and B, not C, cause I didn't know the dude. I initiated all contact. He didn't follow up once.

    As for my past history, objection, overly prejudicial and definitely not applicable to this situation. I ****ing tried hard to get this game in, even took a ****tier deal on my xbox so it would get hear sooner, and I don't want any **** from you because of your assumptions. Sorry this guy being a douche cost your team big, but it may not have mattered anyways.

    As to complaints about my communication, I've made a serious attempt to fix it since the last brouhaha, especially since you are oh so quick to make assumptions about what I have and haven't done.

    TOUCHDOWN JESUS, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME? DID I NOT POUND THE ROCK AS INSTRUCTED? YOU GAVE ME STRETCH RIGHT IN A DREAM, AND IT WAS GOOD (repeatedly, 20-30 times a game)! ARE YOU SIMPLY A FALSE FOOTBALL PROPHET, OR THIS THE WORK OF THE SPREAD DEVIL?

    I'm going to get the Pope to declare a fatwa on the states of Arizona and Arkansas. Catholic jihad is on like Donkey Kong. I thought the BCS was supposed to favor the Irish?

    Additionally, virtual Jack Swarbick would like to again protest ND's independent status. If ND went to the Big East in real life, they'd suck a bag of dicks to get them in the conference as a football member. BIG EAST OR BUST!

    1) Good, clean, wholesome, run-based pro. (The path to Heaven)
    2) Good, clean, wholesome, pass-based pro. (Essentially missionary sex after marriage with a condom , the Church will look the other way)
    3) The wishbone (Was once considered a sin, but Church stance has softened)
    4) The wishbone's slightly evil cousin: the flexbone (Depends on the Pope)
    5) I-formation, triple option (Not necessairly a sin, but a nun would still rap you on the knuckles)
    6) West Coast Offense (You better get to a confessional)
    7) Pistol (Starting to toe the line on a few deadly sins)
    8) West Virginia/Oregon run-based spread (Could still receive absolution on deathbed)
    9) Pass-happy spread (Unforgivable sin)
    10) A-11 (Go directly to Hell, do not pass Go, do not collect $200)

    I envision it as more downfield, but they can be inter-changeable, depending on the OC.

    A few "Our Father's" and a handful of "Hail Mary's" should get you by. But only if it's run-first.

    Clemson is Orange Bowl Champs! Clem-27 Bama-24

    It was a close game and two long TD runs and a KO Return helped my struggling offense out. If Tajh Boyd stays I should be better again next year

    I **** on the Schooner. My assistants kept trying to pull out the starter, but I would have none of it.

    Big Props to Cierre Wood, who won the Heisman, Maxwell, Walker, and some other awards.

    trying to get mine in. xbox live renewed tonight, and I'm getting some issues.

    ok, super weird. the guy just asked to play offline cause he will have lag if we don't. I don't know him. creeped.

    Game 1: I drive to the 50, am about to punt, and his xbox freezes. restarting now.

    Game 2: he rips of a run for a TD, I go 3 and out, when I am punting, it freezes again. WTF?

    I ask him what is up, and he says:
    i tell him we wil try game 3.

    Ok, new update:

    Game 3: He goes up 7-0, then picks me off for the 2d time. Driving to go up 14-0, he throws a pick and I return it for 6. On the ensuing extra point, his xbox freezes again. I'm done for the night.

    super weird. we've talked. He's gonna install the game to his HD and if it happens again tomorrow, we may have to play a "no kicking allowed" game. Which is lame.

    Got my game in. Won 8 - 7 on 6/11 passing for 14 yards with 0 TDs and one interception for a TD. If I knew how to pass the ball you guys would be ****ed 'cause I can run when the defense is in pass-defend mode and I can recruit like a madman.

    Others with same issue. I recommended that he install to and play off of his HD. You both may want to turn off the Dynasty Ticker and ESPN Updates as well. Thanks, keep trying.

    #4 Oklahoma State 54 #8 Oregon 7

    Oregon had a 68 yard TD run by L. James, but only 62 yards of offense (do the math). Angry, angry OSU squad.

    Dudes, I'm (my wife is) having a baby this week, so I likely won't be able to advance until Friday or Saturday anyway, so take your time if you haven't played yet.
