    Looks like it was a very even game. Were you both chewing the clock or something? Not many possessions or total plays

    Nah. Just lots of dink and dunk plays until the end. He converted a lot of 3d downs. Also, my rb fumbled at the goal line in the 1st quarter. :bang:

    No ****. I've had top 10 recruiting classes and am still Bs and Cs. It seems like it is too hard to improve your team with recruiting in this game. Perhaps EA does that on purpose so that you have to purchase that extra training deal if you want to compete.

    I've played a LOT of offline seasons. my 3d season is usually where my team takes a huge leap forward. and I recruited BETTER (ranking wise) with Arkansas than I EVER did with any 3 star teams I've had in offline. So I don't know wtf is up.

    My Wisconsin recruiting has been disappointing, mainly years one and two, when I really hadn't learned strategy yet and ended up getting nothing better than 4*s (and not many at that). My West Virginia squad from another Online Dynasty, by contrast, really benefitted from my mistakes with Wisconsin, so I do know that's its possible to recruit really well in Online Dynasties. I think your first class is the most important and you need to have success on the field to keep increasing how good of prospects you can land.

    definitely true. I am pretty sure I had the best initial class ranking wise. That has panned out not so well. Oh well. I will crush all in the next iteration! I'm excited for it, especially now that everyone knows they have to take recruiting seriously.

    The only positive to not being able to continue to play it offline is that everyone is in the same boat and the competiton seems a little higher as a result.

    In future versions, if they want to curtail the possibility of cheating by playing the dynasty offline, they should only give you the option when you retire from a dynasty.

    That would work. Or just leave it up to the dynasty manager. Ugh. Stupid EA. Brainless fixes.

    Was going to play creatini last night but he had studying and told you to autopilot him. But, I'm not sure if he thought we were advancing last night. I can still play tonight or today

    Haven't gotten that message - go ahead and play today/tonight. Creatini, this is much more important than studying.

    Sorry slider I didn't see your message until after you logged out. Let's give him tonight but I'll put him on auto as well so if he diesn't show slider you can play CPU. I'll put him on auto around 6pm.

    Glad we're going to '12 next season because I already miss Brock. He's gone in this season and both of my young QBs threw two INTs in the first half. I'm in a rush today so I simmed the second half. Though, it might have been that bad even if I had stuck with it. lol

    True freshman Ben Love at QB with a tough debut. I think most of us are breaking in new QBs this season, my guy is going to remind alot of people of Cody Hawkins (cringe). Regardless, ASU has been better off in your hands than Dennis Erickson. Interested to see what team you pick next version.

    Yeah, Love is younnnnnnnng but I think his numbers are decent and I'm gonna ride with him and see if he improves this season.

    Yeah, I should succeed Erickson! Let's get that campaign started. Each week I would conference with y'all on here as to what plays to run. lol.

    I'm hearing that ASU may be the vogue choice to win the Pac-12 South next season, so I might just stick with ASU and pretend it's a continuation of this league. I don't know what I'll do this far out, though.

    I beat USCe 34-7. Should have beaten him by more. Renner took off where he left with over 300 yards passing. My WR's are terrible but my D finds a way to make plays. 3 INT's and 4 FF's
