    Yeah, you'd have some jumpin' to do to get back in the race. Killing slider and a ranked Flounder would help. Scraiper has been known to lose to the CPU inexplicably on occasion. HolyBuff's only challenge is #3 S. Carolina this week.

    It is going to say I have a restart but when I loaded up the game there was this giant glitch where Ohio State's entire team lined up at the middle of the field on the kick off and then on the next 3 huddles. They obviously couldn't get a snap off. Weird. Anyways "restarting" now (I only tried for 3-4 plays)

    I just tried a 2nd time and it happened again. WTF

    Daaah's QB is named Jack Ass, and he (the coach) is named Ham Sandwich. Props.

    It's easiest to turn it off on the uniform selection screen. Instead of selecting "slider1" or whatever your custom playbook is called, select a team-specific playbook or general (i.e. air raid) for both offense and defense.

    I don't have a custom play-book. Mine is "PRO." It looks like Ohio State does however, theirs is completely blank where their playbook name should be

    Hmmmm... ok it looks like I need to get in there and set their playbooks. I can't remember, but I think we had a user be Ohio St. for about 5 minutes (before I nixed it), and they probably jacked up the playbooks. I'll have to do it tonight.

    I wish my RB could come back. I've had the worst luck with injuries in this dynasty.

    West VA 23, Arkansas 3

    I respect Drew's game. He plays it conservative and waits for opportunities, and it very nearly worked. I muffed a punt, which led to a short FG by Drew, cutting an early lead to 7-3. I then executed (what should have been a backbreaking) long screen pass TD, 14-3, but Drew got down to my goal line just before halftime. Feeling good about his chances from the 1, his QB sneak failed on 4th, so it remained 14-3 until early 4th, when I put it away. I also picked him inside my red zone. Was closer than the score. His RB is huge, and he just kept hammering away with him and mixing in passes to his TE.

    That was a fun game Nut. I blew A few opportunities but overall, when you needed a stop or points, you got it done. I'm worried this ****** season is gonna crush my recruiting. Had I converted that 4th and goal it could have gotten a lot more interesting. Either way, super fun game! Cheers!
