    Sorry, guys. I had to stop my game. The holding was seriously out of control. I had everything set to balanced as was getting holding calls on about 1/2 of my running plays and clipping calls on every kickoff return. This is new - it didn't used to be nearly this bad.

    That's why you always schedule visits as soon as they are available and for the nearest possible date if you are in the lead.

    Sometimes if you recruit hard and they don't commit, you can drag it into the offseason and get a visit then, but you need to be top 3 for a shot at commiting

    I have no idea what's going on with these, except to suggest changing the strategy setting that's has to do with holding to conservative. I get about 1 holding call per game. I'll check the sliders again.

    I'll just play through next time. It's particularly troubling for me since I am so bad at passing. But whatever. There must be something going on unrelated to my formations or players because I also cannot (or the CPU) complete a kick return without getting a holding penalty. Let me know when you've confirmed the sliders and I'll go ahead and play.

    Thanks

    Thanks. Just finished with only 3 holding calls. Seemed much more reasonable.

    Thank goodness. I just barely survived against Bama in a 27-24 thriller. Lots of key holding penalties in the red zone.

    Also, WTF is up with the defense? Still acting really weird/dumb, especially on option plays.

    The worst part about the holding plays is that if you had a run over 5 yards, you were guaranteed to get a hold.

    I guess I had better start running the option!

    Okie st 48 West VA 9

    Ok, I had 5 holding calls in the 1stQ, 6 overall only because I turned the strategy to conservative.

    Changed holding to 38 and turned clipping down too (I think I had one each punt return).

    I've been having holding issues every game, but only in the first half (Why I cruise in the 2nd). It must be a tuning tweak. Thanks for turning it down, Nut
