So far Notre Dame, Missouri, and the teams already listed in this thread are taken.

I will advance the season as players complete each week. You will have time to redshirt & recruit.

Yeah, this is starting to piss me off. First time it asked if I wanted to upload the roster, now it doesn't give me the option; either autoname or go with numbers.

Once everyone is ready I will move the league to week one.

NOTE: I customized the schedules so that the teams play each other in the non-con. All teams have at least 3 matchups with other player teams, others have a couple more. I squeezed in as many as possible per team; some schedules were condusive to it (Notre Dame for obvious reasons & KU), others were not.

You guys can check your preseason schedule.... it shows who is playing whom.

PSU ranks really well. I think only OU and USC rank higher in our dynasty. MU is close.

Notre Dame and KU are the bottom two teams by ranking. I tried to schedule the matchups to favor the lower-ranked teams (@home when lower rating).

Notre Dame plays just about everyone in the league :) Nice not having a locked conference schedule

I don't think you should edit anything, from what I understand the roster patch they're working on is for both PS3 and 360....

If you just want to make uniform changes you can do those in a dynasty and not risk problems.

I can't even access the schedule. I'll be interested to see who I play. Honestly, I would rather play my original schedule. Hell, I'm gonna struggle with it as it is. I can't imagine how hard it is gonna be to play you guys. I haven't played console football much in quite a while. Haven't even played at all on the 360 besides a couple games of Madden 08 and the few that I have so far on this game. Mostly, I have played lots of Madden on the PC over the past 3 years.

I am going to start the league tomorrow. It's up to everyone to schedule your game -v- opponent. The custom schedule has us matched up against one another in the non-con.

For the Big XII teams I tried to keep the versus matches w/ non-BIG XII teams to a max of 2 games (since there will be a lot of head to head conference games).

Weeks will progress when we have all set to ready.

Mecca

When you edit so many players that's when you'll get the glitch, if you were just doing 10 guys on the team you were you shouldn't have any issues.

You should probably be a little more hardline than that, what if someone takes a week to play when everyone else was done 6 days before?

Also I'll be happy when things can be edited, you get pipeline states by having guys from other states yet the only state SC has is Cali....I should have Arizona, Washington, Jersey, Louisiana, Arkansas, Florida.....guess they didn't make the guys home states right.

BTW, I played my nephew the other day and it showed that we both had 3 bars on the signal but we kept getting lag. Don't know if that might have something to do with his older Dlink router, though. He has one of those early versions of the Dlink DI-524.

Oh, and is there any way I could talk you into posting the rest of the non con schedule?

I don't know, we haven't got that far yet. I may be able to change the player's status so that the player who can make it plays the CPU. I'd rather give the person who shows the option of playing rather than running the risk of having the sim end up in an L.

Like the guy who has the level 25 and is 147-2, what he's doing is he has a dummy account or one of his friends does they're starting the game he's picking a team like Georgia the dummy account has a bad team and they're super simming to get their win.

I read about this on another board one guy did this 60 times in 1 day, you can tell if they do because it will give you a win but it registers on the server as 0-0 when simmed and you can look at those things.

Also if you challenge one of those guys, which I did they never show up, their records are fake.

If you're going to play against people you don't know here's my advice.....

No Florida teams, no teams with fast QB's......on this year the DE contain play is broken so they can just run around in the pocket forever until they find someone open.

Also the people who make this game Tiburon, are based in Florida so every single Florida team is wildly overrated, I'm sorry Carlos Dunlap is the best defensive end ever in this game and in real life he's well not.

Florida States RB is impossible to tackle and their team in general is a million times better than it should be, and don't even get me started on UCF where a bunch of people who made this game went to college so I bet you can't guess how wildly overblown that teams rankings are...

Mr. Arrowhead

Antone Smith is like Bo Jackson reincarnated, he will break the first tackle every time no matter who it is, not to mention they made shit ass Drew Weatherford good and some douchebag WR I've never heard of in Preston Parker has a star under his name, it's really annoying.

Also for the commish of our league, I understand some of the people in our league are new to the game, but if we get to the point where everyone is racking up huge yards, you should set the league difficulty to Heisman and find a slider set, there was one posted in the other NCAA thread on this board that is said to work well.

AA has to much offense and Heisman does alot to fix that, also I never even thought of this do you have to play 5 minutes quarters in the online dynasty?

Also I think the kickoff power meter should be moved if nothing else is, yes I have McKnight and can get giant returns but it's unrealistic, if you make it higher so the kicks can go through the endzone or atleast to the back of the end zone it will help fix this.

from what i've seen the kickoffs are pretty unrealistic altogether. It becomes a strategic disadvantage to kick off. I haven't played at heisman or even know if that is something a slider can cure.

I'm pretty sure on the special teams sliders theres one for FG power and one for kickoff power, oddly the FG power is to high as guys make 55 yard FG's yet the KO power isn't enough as giant returns constantly happen.

My offense is built around throwing the 15 yard cross, playaction, screens, and running.

I hardly ever throw deep, if I do it's off playaction and if I do I don't do the rocket catch thing I think that is cheesing.

I agree it's more like a chess match. If you are putting everyone in the box every play I'm gonna burn you long or try just to move you out of there. The whole heave ho thing is why it's frustrating to play online. That's why i'm more stoked about the league. hopefully i can play people who are trying to accomplish something in the game more than an online win

I'd have a real hard time with that anyway, Mark Sanchez is only an 88 rating and my starting WR's in Turner and Hazelton only have 91 or 90 speed....

The only thing I do that may make people mad is I play David Ausberry at TE, which is what he should be playing in real life. I'd change his position but it won't let me do that till after the year.

Here's the slider set from the other thread...

taken from www.operationsports.com

***NJPapi's Heisman Slidiers V 1.5***



Update 07/16/08:

After receiving word from Watson and The2ndComing about what a member at OS figured out with the sliders for human working for the cpu as well. I was skeptical since it seemed like a reach. I decided to test them throughly along with a set from DAVE who provided me with his mix and i got to work on this new update.

The biggest issue is that all human sliders not only work for the human but for the cpu. The cpu sliders are worthless and can remain at default.

Unless EA patches the slider issue which i dont think they can or will. Then this is one of those years that you have to make an effort to get the cpu to play right on heisman or any other level for that matter.

What I mean is that if you have the human accuracy at let's say 35 then it affects the cpu qb as well. I cannot lower it to much since it will make the cpu throw weak passes along with your qb as well.

that qb accuracy can be set at 1 number and it will work fine for both sides.

The issue is the run game and only the run game. If you put the rb ability and run blocking at 100 then it works for both sides. The issue is that if you put the sliders at max for the run game for human then your running back gets a boost of speed and juking abilities which to me kill the game. The only way around this is to max it out when the cpu has the ball so they can run better and when you have the ball you lower it to make it realistic based on your team and back.

This was killing me all afternoon until I decided to set it at one number to work for both sides and leave it at that. The results are not huge in terms of the cpu run game but i prefer a limited run game for the offense then to have my run game be that good when I have a weak back that is not to fast.

Now on to the defense:

The defensive sliders for cpu also dont work so leave all at default. I dont want you guys to move them at all.

The human defensive sliders work for both sides. This is where it gets better in terms of your defenders not acting like morons and the cpu defense not being easy to pick apart with short passes.

Many folks want to fix the cpu qb being so damm accurate but that does not bother me as much as me being able to move the ball vs the top teams on heisman all game long.

Please try this new set by using the following matchups.

First game:

Pick Georgia and play at Kentucky

Second game:

Pick Rutgers and play home vs Oklahoma

This will give you a game with a top team vs a weaker team and vice versa for the second game

The same issue goes for the Special teams. Use only the human side of things.







Sub In and Out:

QB Out 0
Qb In 1
RB Out 84
RB In 100
WR Out 0
WR In 1
FB/TE 0
FB/TE 1
OL Out 0
OL In 1

DT Out 84
DT In 100
DE Out 84
DE In 100
LB Out 0
LB In 1
CB Out 0
CB In 1
S Out 0
S In 1

The 84 and 100 is to make frequent subs in the d-lines and rb positions

The others are to not have subs since those are usually all game starters


NJPapi's Heisman Sliders:

Injuries On or Off
Fatigue On
Quarter Lenght 8 minutes
Playclock On
HFAE On
Ice Kicker On
Quiz QB On


Penalties:

All maxed out except for roughing the passer which is set at 30.


Human and CPU Offense:

QB Accuracy: 35 (This works for both human and cpu passers)

Pass Blocking: 0 (This has helped the pass rush)

WR Catching: 0 (Not sure of this is reversed or not but I do see more drops at this number)

RB Ability: 55 (This will make your back play to his rating and makes the cpu runner average at best)

Run Blocking: 100 (This will improve the run lanes for both sides)




Human and CPU Defense:

Awareness: 100 (This will help defenders stay closer to receivers and backs)

Knockdowns: 100 (This will help the defenses swat passes)

Interceptions: 0 (Finally this slider works like it should for both sides)


Break Block: 0 (This is strickly a slider for playing against the run for the human and cpu)

Tackling: 40 (This will allow runners to break more tackles)






Human and CPU Special Teams:

FG Power: 5 (This will make those 50 plus yarder hard to make for both sides)

FG Accuracy: 45 (This will make long kicks harder to go straight for both sides)

Punt Power: 40 (This will make it easier to get down and cover punt returners)

Punt Accuracy: 60 (This will make the human and cpu punters coffin kick better)

Kickoff Power: 65 (This will make kicks go to the goal line at most times for both sides)





It is important that when the cpu is punting. You always picks punt return and not punt block...If you punt block then the cpu will bring in their protection which will lead to an open field to return it for 45 yards with ease.

If you pick punt return then it will be harder to get long returns with ease.


Please remember that CPU Sliders remain at 50 since they don't work

One last thing is that if you play press coverage then your chances of shutting down the cpu pass game improve immensly.[/quote]

Ok I'll post this here because it's easier than typing it on Xbox.....

I wouldn't be to worried about that score if I were you, you play the way that gives me problems, picking DB's and running around screws up how I play offense. Defensively you were better than most people I play..

All you need to do is watch the turnovers, if you can keep from turning the ball over you'll beat about 75% of the people you play. You're not bad you just throw it up for grabs to much, if you can work on that you'll win most of your games.

My 1 tip for something to never ever do is never hurdle in the middle of the field if you get hit in the air the ball always comes out, I know you probably didn't see Maualuga there but this game has a thing where if you get hit in the air the ball almost always comes out.

I will give you major credit the way you lineup on defense takes away about 50% of my offensive game plan, I throw deep crosses, screens and circles taking away the middle of the field takes away a ton of what I do.

I guess I'll have to try to get some more commits and get some pipelines goin, I have none as of now other than my homestate.

I still think there should be a date up there if the person hasn't played they're shit out of luck, and if a person doesn't show up they shouldn't get to get wins in simming, you could cheese your way into wins.

Like if I'm a top 5 team playing a team ranked 20th yet I know my team is better but the player is better than me by not showing up I could get a sim win, that to me isn't fair.

I still think there should be a date up there if the person hasn't played they're shit out of luck, and if a person doesn't show up they shouldn't get to get wins in simming, you could cheese your way into wins.

Like if I'm a top 5 team playing a team ranked 20th yet I know my team is better but the player is better than me by not showing up I could get a sim win, that to me isn't fair.

yeah, any sim is gonna be a coin toss

he's got a date up there of 8/4 for the week to advance

I'm wondering if these guys know they are in a league

I was reading a thing about recruiting and Penn State and USC are both on the list of easier schools to recruit to.

Some guys just won't commit earlier, but you have to be #1 on their schools list to get a commit on the spot.

I had a star QB, and a 4 star RB commit, in the other dynasty that crashed, in week1. It kind of sucks, because the recruits I've got are pretty good, but nothing like some of the I dug up in the other one.

I had a 5 star WR that no one else was even going after. he was 6' 7", and ran a 4.29.

I can see why you take USC, Mecca. The offense is great. Reminds me a bit of Notre Dame's.

I won my first online ranked match tonight (first I've ever player). I took USC -v- Florida. Won 34-21. Ran the ball 36 times for 190+ yds. :D

16 of 18 for 169 & a TD. Great balance. I had a HUGE TOP advantage... 15+min for me.

Dude cheesed a bit; rolled Teebo all over the place and threw almost every down. Then, at the end w/ game in hand, started calling timeouts & jumping offsides to kill the clock. I can see why, but it was still a bit annoying w/ <10 sec left and a two-possession lead.

Mecca
08-03-2008, 09:20 PM
I'd take SC either way it's my favorite team, which RB are you using.....

Also the only thing about using SC that can be a pain is the WR's aren't overly fast, defense is incredibly good though.

I set a large portion of the dynasty in autopilot mode this evening. If you wish to play your game and you are in autopilot, speak up now. The game needs to be completed by 7PM tomorrow evening or the week will be simmed.

Those of you who have not yet played but have been online, I sent you messages and informed you of your opponent's setting. Get your game in asap. :)


Mecca - I went through several as they kept getting killed by the FL defense. It didn't really matter, I had the guy so far off balance I was averaging over 4 ypc. Hehehe, 15+ min TOP in a 5min qtr game.... insanity.

Joe McKnight is by far the easiest back to run the ball with, he's also the big play guy...after him I go to Stafon Johnson...

oh im getting better

the score of our last wasn't any indication

but I learned a couple of things like switching to max protect to buy time in the pocket

controlling the throw of the ball seems like my guys always got to jump for it

I tried using a different defensive playbook and I didn't care for it 3-3-5 is for me

Mecca
08-04-2008, 03:26 AM
You should really only line up in 3-3-5 if you play a team like Missouri, doing that to a team like mine or any more traditional offense is asking to be run on, yes I run 3 down against you alot but it's when you're down and passing every play.

How are you max protecting I know you can slide protect you're line but I've yet to see a max protect thing pop up...

Check out their ratings, Kyle Moore the one on the left side of the screen has a 94 rating and the guy I usually come with Everson Griffin is just an athletic freak he's 270ls and ran a 40 in the 4.5's in real life..

Mecca and I played tonight. Wow, I am going to have a rough time of it in this dynasty! I ran plays very similar to what I ran while as USC with wildly different results.

Lzen and I apparently have a masochistic side ;)

Yeah, it sucks that KU isn't ranked higher. I mean, c'mon. We know that haven't been highly ranked until last year. But give Mangino some credit. He has built a good program. 77 overall is ridiculous for a team that won a BCS game, finished 12-1, and returns 15 starters. And yeah, I will probably get beaten by most of the highly ranked teams if I have to play them. Oh well. I just can't bring myself to use another team. It just wouldn't feel right.

I wish some of the other players had chosen some lesser teams. But I can understand wanting every advantage you can get. It makes sense for guys like Mecca picking his favorite team in USC. It's been well known since he's been here that he is a huge USC fan. I know if we were playing a college hoops game, I would pick KU and be one of the best teams in the game. And I wouldn't care that my team was better than most other teams.

Still, it will probably take me some years in recruiting to have talent half way comparable to some of the other players in this dynasty. I still don't know if I like the idea of having to play ND and Florida, though. I guess I just have to practice my skills more on this game. I am really good at Madden on the PC. I have only played about 3 or 4 games of football (no NCAA, just Madden) on the 360. Still getting used to the controls.

Lzen
08-04-2008, 08:38 AM
Oh yea, here's a great little tidbit that shows how much those EA Tiburon jackasses don't know anything about KU football. I was playing my dynasty offline and Kansas State was my next opponent. KSU is ranked a little higher than KU on this game. Most people and experts alike think that KSU will finish 5th or 6th in the North division of the Big 12 this year.

As the game is loading up, it gives little factoids about the teams. It said that the KU/KSU rivalry has been going since 1902. Said that the governor's cup began in 1969. Said KU has had the overall better record in the rivaly, but that KSU has dominated KU in recent years. Recent years???? Are you freaking kidding me???!!! KU has taken 3 out of the last 4 matchups. The only time KSU won in the past 4 seasons was at Manhattan in 2005 when KU was still struggling with finding a QB and/or trying to keep one healthy. The final score of that game was 12-3. If KU had any kind of talent at QB that could stay healthy since Whittemore graduated after that 2003 season, they would have been better sooner. Stupid Tiburon assholes!!

True, but I want to play with a bit more even teams next time around. ND's entire team was 3 steps slower than USC. I didn't notice when I played as USC earlier in the evening but I could sure tell when playing as a lower rated team. Tiburon did a shit job with this game IMO. I have considered taking it back for a different title. Heck, 2007 had WAAAAAY more balance than this version.

Can both players use the same team? I liked USC. Nice balance on O and the D was solid.

Too bad. Cause if you play on line you will play USC, Georgia, or FL........A LOT.

If you cannot make your match by the scheduled date please let your opponent and myself know so that arrangements may be made. If no communications are received by myself or your scheduled opponent by the posted date, the game will be simmed. If one player is online and the other is a no-show, the no-show will be set in autopilot mode. This is only fair as the rest of the dynasty is idle while waiting on others to complete their games.

LOL, I figure eventually you'll either beat me or come really close, if you play me enough times you'll figure me out.

I like the 4 day week.

It's up to the players to get the game scheduled and played in the allotted time. Four days is plenty time to get that accomplished IMO. If on the fourth night a game has not been played, I will contact the team owners and let them know the game will be simmed if they don't get it played asap - just like I did this weekend.

After that, it's sim or autopilot.

Work for everyone?

I'm never going to get another deep pass on you am I?

I burned you once and now you'll sit back every time....
