    BCS Title Game

    Wisconsin 28 Florida State 21, OT

    1st Half
    I almost can't describe what a rollercoaster of a game this was. Fame had me down 14-0 after he opened the game with a methodical TD drive and I missed a 57 yard FG wide, then he went down the short field quickly for a second TD, 14-0 Florida State early 2nd. I got to about midfield until my QB fumbled on a roll out. He drove right down to my 21 (inside 2:00 left in 1st half) before the play of the game. He rolled out way right, threw back across the field, my LB tipped the ball and my safety INTd it around the 5 and returned it into Florida State territory. Plus, I knocked his starting QB out for the game on the play. I was looking at being down 21-0 and now I can make it 14-7 with a TD, which I get with :12 remaining on a 7 play, 45 yard drive.

    2nd Half
    Down only a score with a new lease on life, I get the kickoff and promptly drive right down to the Florida St. 14 before settling for a FG, 14-10 Florida State. After converting a 3rd and long, the Seminoles hit for a 61 yd TD run along the left sideline, with his tailback barely staying inbounds while spinning out of tackle, 21-10 Florida State. On my next offensive play, I execute an option left which saw my QB gain about 20 yards until he (tried to do like Hagan and) pitched it to Clay but misfired, giving Florida State the ball right back up 11 already, late 3rd. Fame lost his 2nd string QB to injury but still drove down to my 16 before play of the game part deux: on 3rd and 8, his 3rd stringer whipped it to the left flat only to throw it right to my CB who was sitting on a route, and who returned it 84 yds for a TD. I get the 2 pointer and its 21-18 Florida State. I'm looking at being down 18 or 14 but instead I'm down 21-18, late 3rd. Florida State takes the kickoff and rips off a few big gainers that put him at my 28 yard line. He then inexplicably throws deep over the middle (with his 3rd stringer), overthrows his WR and my Safety picks it off, just under 4:00 left. I start chewing the clock and mix in a few passes before my drive stalls at his 13 with :09 left. He ices me but I barely make a straight ahead 30 yarder to send it to OT 21-21.

    OT
    In OT I used a QB scramble to get inside the 10 and on 3rd and G from the 5, hit my TE for a TD, 28-21. Then Fame threw a pick on the first play of his series, and Wisconsin triumphs as Champs. Yards were about even 318-290, but Fame had 4 TOs to my 2. There were no punts. Much maligned QB Jon Budmayr became a secret weapon, going 7-9, 128, 2/0 (2 fumbles though). Repeat Heisman winner John Clay was held to 109 yards on 20 carries, no TDs (first time all year held under 200/no TDs/no 20 yd runs).


    Highlights here


    Season Recap:
    Wisconsin came out of the gates and beat their first four human opponents by an average score of 59-24, then dispatched Iowa 60-20 but lost QB Kurt Phillips for the year in the process. The Badgers went from being unbeatable to having no passing game. Backup Jon Budmayr would captain a 44-0 drubbing of Michigan, but Coach Bradical lost confidence in Budmayr (must have been the sub-100 QB rating), and lost him to injury, in subsequent wins. 3rd stringer QB Joe Brennan started a 68-3 murder of Northwestern, but Brennan had to be replaced by Budmayr in a 51-44 debacle against Purdue. Budmayr finished out the last three games and an undefeated regular season, but the Badgers lost their aura of invincibility, despite reigning Heisman winner John Clay smashing his own rushing record by gaining 3,384 yards and 49 TDs (11.83/carry). Wisconsin survived numerous knockout attempts by Florida St. in a 28-21 title game OT win.

    Fame got a lot better as the season went on. So since Boise is a 6 star team, how does that affect Daaah?

    And I feel like I got worse. I made a huge mistake by playing him right after he put up 42 on you and I was cold, it took me a while to get into the game.

    Boise 6 star team? Maybe after the end of the season? Either way, Daah has ratcheted them up and gets to keep them, if that's what you mean. I fully expect Wisconsin to be 6 stars after this season, and a few other teams in the Dynasty.

    Make sure you lose OKC :)

    So me switching to Michigan is a no go, correct?

    Let me know, I'm sure you'd like some competition in the Big 10. I switched back to Miami in the meantime though.

    You can switch to 5* Michigan. Anyone else who wants to switch teams is fine as long as they are not 6* or the Buffs, please get my approval first. For the record, I think switching from Miami when you just happen to be losing your 99 rated QB is not by coincidence and will be remembered when Michigan plays Wisconsin next year.

    I'll probably stick with UNC. My recruiting hasn't been the best but I'll stay with the team I've built. That's part of the fun

    Agreed - Wisconsin is going to lose some key people (Clay for starters) but I've been trying to reload and I want to see how good my classes are

    He's going to be sweet after I redshirted him this season - still two years to play and he'll probably be 95-97 next year. But I lose two elite offensive linemen (a 99 and 98, I believe) who basically were the difference between a 12 yard carry and a 7 yard carry every play.

    UNC-37 WVU-10. Kinda disappointed my future star true freshman QB is a lefty. Will have to get used to that. Hopefully Renner stays the next two years.... My DL will suck next year and I only improve at QB, RB, WR, OLB, FS, and SS. Every other position will be worse. Ruh roh

    BRAK and I had connection issues last night. This is the third time this has happened to me, so I'm thinking it must be on my end. It was doing the hanging on the 'waiting for opponent' screen again. I've tested my connection with xbox lives tool though, and it says everything is ok. The other weird thing is that it eventually worked when okc and I played.

    I've tried googling and some folks report the same problem, but I've found no solutions.
