    You're not, I've had that happen to me when there is either a drop in my Internet connection or the EA servers hiccups or goes down. You probably lost those minutes and results from the call you were on when it happened, but your previous calls should be fine.

    UCF paid off the refs. Every big play I had there was a phantom hold, 35 yards from the play, right before the whistle. I got 8 of them that way. EA Sports can kiss my ass, I still won 33-3.

    Were the situations similar (i.e. when somebody was kicking/punting)? Thanks for the update, in case it's not already agreed upon between you two, make sure you both reset your modem/router etc. before trying again. Also, if either of you got a disc error, install the game to your HD (would basically recommend this to everyone, anyway).

    the only thing in common was he had possession of the ball! he wasn't punting/kicking. After the first freeze...i did take time to reboot my router. How do you download the game to your HD from the disc?

    At the Xbox Dashboard (with the game disc inserted), instead of hitting A to 'play game,' you hit Y to bring up another menu, and you'll see the option to install. After it has installed, you still need to have the disc in the tray to play the game, but it will play the game from your HD automatically each time you play the game until you delete it from your HD. It prevents the game from freezing due to issues related to your xbox or disc, but you're still vulnerable to the game freezing due to EA servers hiccuping or going down.

    Can you give me more details on the 2nd game (precise game situation when freeze happened)?

    Thanks Brad! I will download to my HD tonite. Both times the game froze was after we called our plays but before Brak actually snapped the ball. I don't know on his side if he was changing the play or whatnot. But both times it froze before he could snap it. And I asked him if this has happend to him before and he said it has happened a few months ago and thought it was a server problem. This was the first time i've ever had the game freeze up.

    weird. that is very similar to the kicking issues I had in the National championship game last season. We would call the play, adn as soon as we came out of the play menu and started to get set, freeze.

    Score from around the league:

    Nebraska 24
    Arizona State 17

    This one appeared to be a war between two pretty damn good players. Nebraska/scraipermann was down 17-3 late in the 3rdQ...

    If you have a MSN/hotmail account, it's the same permissions...

    I don't think there is a way to have your xbox messages forwarded to an email account.

    20-9. Yep, close game, it kind of came down to red zone production as Slider had to settle for 2 short FGs and I was able to punch it in twice. Slider had a really good gameplan that he followed the entire game - he played conservative, waited for me to make mistakes, took points when they were there, didn't make any stupid decisions at all, he just couldn't come up with a big play when he needed to and I managed a few big plays. Respect.

    My field goal kicker is awful. I think I am 0-5 on the season.

    He's 75 or something overall. Didn't think he'd be that bad.

    Unfortunately, 75 is bad/below average for a kicker/punter. There are really only a handful of decent kickers/punters available to recruit each season (the best are still only 3*s), I try to recruit my next guy two years in advance so I can redshirt him and maybe he'll be in the mid 80s by the time he is the starter.
