Mecca's guy won the Heisman. J.Diddy's guy was 2nd.

urgh, that's a bunch of bullshit.

Yes. Yes it is. I have an idea to fix it, though.

Hey my guy had nearly 3500 all purpose yards and over 30 TD's, he's deserving!

Lzen

Whoops. I thought J. Diddy was replying to my diatribe about UTEP being #1 in the feedback71 dynasty. No, the Heisman thing is alright. Both guys were deserving, IMO. Only 1 can win it.

If you play a long drawn out dynasty 1 or several teams like San Diego State, North Texas, Utep and the like become good because of the states they are in...if you ever started a dynasty with one of those teams it's really not that hard to make those teams good.

Lzen
12-10-2008, 06:48 PM
No Mecca. I don't think you understand. UTEP is bad. They are ranked low to mid 60s overall.

Lzen
12-10-2008, 06:49 PM
But that still doesn't make them #1 overall. My only loss is to Missouri who is currently ranked in the top 10.

Mecca
12-10-2008, 07:12 PM
That's weird...usually if a team in a bad conference goes undefeated they get placed behind the other teams due to bad schedule..

The other team I've seen go undefeated a bunch of times is BYU.

J Diddy

They gave it to a guy who made most of his yardage on punt returns vs. a guy who set ncaa records for rushing in a season, most tds in a season and destroyed every school record there was.

If this was real life and I was that guy I'd go postal.

That being said, he's deserving.

J Diddy
12-10-2008, 07:25 PM
Ok, there is one thing about this game that still pisses me off. In the feeback71 dynasty, UTEP is ranked number 1 because they're undefeated. They have not played one single team with a winning record. WTF? And that is the BCS ranking. Obviously, if EA had made the game like the real BCS ranking, it would take UTEP's schedule into account and they would not be ranked that high. Now maybe top 25, sure. Maybe even top 15, but not even #1 overall. That is retarded. Especially when there are several 1 loss teams from power conferences.
Heh, just looked to see what conference UTEP is in. Apparenlty, it is Conference USA. Only 4 teams out of 12 in that conference even have a winning record and UTEP did not even have to play the other 3. :rolleyes:

well it ain't gonna bode well for them in the nc game.

Lzen
12-10-2008, 07:41 PM
well it ain't gonna bode well for them in the nc game.

Nope. I fixed that problem. Normally, I would not want screw with it, but I was not about to let that BS happen. Ole Miss, a team who was 4-7 going into the game, just kicked UTEP's ass. Final score was 38-7. I hope that drops them far enough that none of us have to play them.

Good game your RB has like super speed...

Lzen, when you advance that tomorrow tell me when it's going to be, either on here or on there whatever.

You have to be on when it advances to get your players back and I have no scholarships left to offer and a couple guys leaving I'd like back, all I'll need is 10 minutes if that so I'd appreciate it.

So if you can let me know when so I can be in the dynasty and do my players I'd greatly appreciate it.

I wasn't very excited when you ran the opening kickoff back...

If you have anyone leaving early that you want back we should all try to be on at a certain time that Lzen is going to advance it so that way we can actually get them back.

Lzen
12-11-2008, 11:52 PM
Well, I usually look at it after work (around 5pm Central). It would be great if we could get all 4 of us (not 5 of us - Travnasty7 asked to be put on auto pilot) on at the same time for a couple of hours. But who knows how that is gonna work out. I will be on tomorrow after work like normal unless the wife has something for me (or us) to do.

Mecca
12-11-2008, 11:56 PM
Ok...well the only week that the game glitches and will screw you is on the players leaving screen, that's the most important one well unless no one else cares if they lose guys or not.

Ok so I'll pop on around 5 tomorrow and see if I can get my guys back.

I won't be able to be on until at least 8 or 9, same with sat.

If everyone can wait that late, I'd be game.

Yeah, was pretty good. Probably should have stuck with the run a little more. You broke my rookie qb, but he's gonna be most likely a backup with 2 5 star coming in.

You switched your defense up a lot as well I noticed you were using the quarter in a show blitz. That's my thing, dammit.

I switched up in the 2nd half because up by 3 scores I figured, just no big plays if he scores he scores just make him burn up the clock.

I don't know I doubt it, the majority of my offense were freshman at least the ones who mattered most.

couple of my players on d probably but I've got some solid depth there.

If you played freshman over guys who were say juniors or sophs you may lose some guys on transfers.

Ok well Lzen whenever 5 or 9 just let me know so I can be on when it moves.

Lzen
12-12-2008, 08:19 AM
Well, I guess that depends on Diddy and Gopher. Let me get on when I get off work and send Gopher a message to try to be on at 9pm. Or if you have access to it, you could send him a message for me, Mecca. You know, just to be sure he gets it and is okay with it.

Mecca
12-12-2008, 07:11 PM

I'm starting a true freshman at qb. I got the no. 1 qb last year but he was a juco transfer junior so I redshirted him. The no. 2, another 5 star recruit, stats are better than everyone I had on my roster including the guy who started last year. He'll probably transfer out next season because I don't see him getting many snaps this year.

That being said, I redshirted every other first year player.

He was decent, tbh I didn't give him too much of a look because I have like 4 safeties. He'll probably end up the starter next year and will most likely be in his 90's be the time he's a junior.

I usually look at their speed ratings first having a really slow guy in the secondary can be an issue.

I guess you get to face off with my freshman secondary...my top 4 CB's are all true freshman, my SS is a RS freshman the only guy who came back from my last years secondary is my FS and he's only a junior now.

I do it a lil bit different, My corners got to have good speed but since I play alot of man under cover 2 I make sure my safeties have good zone cover and decent speed.

btw I'm changing up my recruiting this year. I went to the roster and I've got like 10 wr and 10 corners and 4 safeties.

I landed a bad ass rb this year that I redshirted, I plan on him being a replacement to my rb because I assume he will go pro next year.

yeah I knew I lost it when I scored, I should have ran it a couple of more times and forced you to use timeouts or taken more time off the clock.

It certainly was a better game than the championship

Really sucky thing was I lost my game in the other league 22-21. It was eerily similar to the chiefs game, even when they scored went for 2 and I stopped them.

Urgh, I should have played some golf today instead of dealing with football.

Mecca
12-14-2008, 07:22 PM
LOL you stopped me a couple times, I was confident I could score but not 100%...my team ratings are down across the board since I have so many young players starting.

My huge QB and WR basically saved me, outside of that I just had no ability to defend the RB, when a guy is that fast and rated like that defending him is extremely hard unless you have 99's across your D.

I'm still a couple years away from being any kind of powerhouse, but yea it was a great game and your defense is a big pain in the ass and so is your RB.

I saw I had the matchup a couple times with him when he runs deep in a straight line he's very fast but being 6'7 he's not all that agile.

The biggest thing was just hoping my QB had the arm to get it there...I have a dude on my bench who's a RS freshman with a 96 arm strength but he's not very accurate, I'm hoping he'll develop so I can really go vertical.

The first touchdown you got where you went deep you caught me with no safety help at because I was blitzing. Me poor corner had no shot in hell to defend that.

No matter what man that was one of the best games I've played in it was really a great game, it made 3rd on my greatest games list. Talk about trial by fire for my first time starting QB, I was really iffy about which QB I was going with, guess he earned the job..

I don't envy anyone else that has to play you, you have a really great team, those LB's are what makes it go man, they tackle everything.

Well in fairness when your RB breaks tackles and has that speed you will gash anyone unless you're playing like USC or someone who has a 99 overall defense.

It's like having Joe McKnight, at 1 point I was getting pretty frustrated because there was no way to defend it.

The feedback71 dynasty will be doing the offseason stuff starting around 9pm tonight. Be there or be square. Actually, the CPU will handle that stuff for you if can't make it. If for some reason somebody really, really wants to do their offseason stuff and can't make it tonight, PM or IM me and we will try to work something out. I just think that most of us would like to get the offseason knocked out in one night rather than dragging it out for a week or two.

The feedback71 dynasty will be doing the offseason stuff starting around 9pm tonight. Be there or be square. Actually, the CPU will handle that stuff for you if can't make it. If for some reason somebody really, really wants to do their offseason stuff and can't make it tonight, PM or IM me and we will try to work something out. I just think that most of us would like to get the offseason knocked out in one night rather than dragging it out for a week or two.

I agree, plus I already bought the darn microphone.

Just downloaded the roster by romancaesar. It is the most accurate one I have seen. Seems to have all the KU players in the positions they are in now and I think the ratings are pretty fair. Only thing is that it has Kerry Meier at 66 overall at QB. Tha is due to his awareness at QB being only 22. That is not right. But I wonder if that is the best he could do. At least he has both Meier and Briscoe 90 overall at WR.

Mecca

You can't make him be good at both positions in awareness, the game just doesn't allow it.

Are you looking forward to our matchup? And how does south carolina guy play...I noticed he has a super speed RB.

Lzen
12-16-2008, 07:47 PM
Yea, I wondered if it was something like that. Oh well, can't have it all, I guess.

His running back was his main offense as far as I remember. But I got up on him by a few scores pretty quickly. So, he didn't have as much chance. His team has some talent at some spots. But it also has some holes. I really have no idea about his ability. One game does not always tell the story. Hell, last season KCGopher kicked my Kansas team's ass in the feedback71 dynast. That game was fucked from the get go. Must have had something about the rivalry.

Anyhoo, I returned the favor plus some in this dynasty.

Yeah, you too. That int that you returned for a TD really did me in. That and a couple of plays where I had a guy in position and he just missed the tackle and you turned into a big play.

And I had to settle for FGs too much.

BTW, what kind of defense is it that you run? I notice that every time I play you, your defense looks different than anything I ever see on this game. I think that is part of it. Your defense is hard to read because I have no experience against it.

It's a big mixture, some of it is quarter, some of it is the nickel set with 3 down and 3 LB's, I honesty play you alot differently than I do anyone else because you are in shotgun every play.

We have the whole polar opposites thing going on, I'm pure pro style rarely in shotgun and you are all spread shotgun all the time.

Well, I'm not in it all the time. I do run some other stuff. I ran some plays with a fullback as well as some in the Ace formation. But yeah, most of my stuff is with 4 and 5 wides. When I tried to run out of the I formation, my FB made a piss poor attempt at a block and I got tackled behind the LOS. I don't know if I even went back to it after that. Maybe I should have.

Mecca
12-18-2008, 09:40 PM
There's just honestly no way I could use that playbook, I don't like most of my playbook to be in shotgun. It's just what you feel comfortable with.

I have to watch how I play defense with you because I feel like you're trying to spread me out and run.

I thought it was interesting to see our teams be rated exactly the same....and how's that RB playing DE working for you, yes I noticed and I wasn't thrilled that he blew around my OT on the first play when he has no DE ratings he's just fast LOL.

Lzen
12-18-2008, 09:51 PM
Lol, yes.That is definitely one aspect of my gameplan. I did have a pretty good day rushing against you. Normally, I like to pass a lot, too. But I find it more difficult against you because there does not seem to ever be anything open downfield and I can't get a very good presnap read. Maybe I need to play you more often to get used to your style. :) And I think I am just so used to Kansas not being able to pass block for long that I get happy feet. I really should just trust my offensive line. This team's oline is better than the Kansas team I start with in my other dynasties.

But yeah, it is what you are comfortable with. When I used to play Madden a lot on the PC, I used the Dick Vermeil offense. So, all that time using that offense, I became very confortabe with multiple receiver formations. Not to say that offense doesn't run a lot of traditional formations as well. Just that it had some good multiple reciever formations. Also, since I watch the real Jayhawk team run the spread, I am kind of fond of it. ;)

Mecca
12-18-2008, 09:57 PM
My personal experience is when you get accustom to having a fast QB it hurts your passing game because you start to rely on moving. Or like you said if you are use to have a bad Oline, and the game always seems to make throwing on the run super hard as your guy will become wildy inaccurate. Like that one when you were moving toward the sideline and threw and it went wildly high tipped off your guys hand it somehow landed on the ground with 3 of my guys standing right there.

Years if playing games with USC QB's and Trent Green got me in the habit of never moving unless I had to, I still try to play that way even if my guy can move around.

I don't know if you noticed but my defense has freshman starting everywhere so at times I'm a bit leery of one of them messing up.

Dude it was hilarious. He kept trying to roll out every time and throw the ball deep across the field. Two pick sixes from that alone. My fav was when it was like 4th and 16 within the first quarter, he's at his twenty and fake punts it. Shortly thereafter, he actually gets a pick. within my twenty I sack him for like a 16 yard loss and then according to him he had a "power surge"

Sure he's cheezy, but he's not very good at it.

Yeah, that sucked. I really didn't want to go to OT. Or worse, you to drive and score with no time left. But yeah, I thought the spot was bad. Should have been a first down. I think I tend to ignore my inner Herm because I have gotten so sick of watching that over the years with Marty and Herm coaching the Chiefs.

If my defenders could make tackles. Sometimes they are in good position and just miss the tackle and it turns into a big play. Same thing happened a time or two against Mecca. Hell, I even out gained UNC in total yards in that game. Oh well. But your defense did a pretty good job against my running game. I probably should have done a little more short passing. I like to try to hit a home run if I can. :)

Ok let me explain, I honestly wasn't trying to be an asshole. Have you ever played a game with Florida?

Literally 99% of the playbook is in shotgun and every run play outside of goaline is option plays. It is basically how they play in real life, I don't have much choice there like I said I was just trying something different.

You know me I don't generally play that way but Florida is a run option team, I don't have much choice.

I'll generally use pro style 99% of the time but I thought it was just for fun, sorry if it really made you that mad.

Mecca
12-28-2008, 05:19 AM
I admit I get annoyed when people take a pro style team and run the option with them like it's their offense but if you use florida or west virginia you have to run the option, it's what all the run plays are.

You won't see any option with NC or USC because they are pro style, unless of course I run it as say a gimmick play here and there because those playbooks have maybe 4 option plays in the entire thing, where as florida it's the entire run game.

I wasn't intending to make you mad I was just trying out something I never do.

I thought you knew you'd see option when I picked Florida...I waited to see if you'd tell me to pick a different team.

If you see Florida or WV you can play the straightest player of all time but the option has to be run unless you want them to run the QB draw or pass every play.

What's your team overall......hell your team is probably better than mine to, most of the users have better teams than me aside from Lzen who is about the same and of course Duke.

I know I'm 2 and all and have won titles but I don't think some realize how low my team rating actually is with all of the true freshman I have playing.

This is my 3rd year with this team my team overall is I believe 80 80 or 81...trust me it may be fun or sound fun to build your own team but when you have to start those true freshman right away it's not all it's cracked up to be...my offensive playmaker is a true sophomore WR who has a 78 rating....

I look at it this way, first 3 years are the base, the next 3 are from going from that to powerhouse then anything following that is maintaining it.

David.
12-29-2008, 05:28 AM
yeah but he's 6'7 and has like 97 speed. Unfortunately in EA's version of football that matters more than almost anything else. Hopefully next year they do...SOMETHING to make it so speed isn't basically all that matters...not really sure what they could do though.

I'll be frank with you, he isn't as good as that would have you believe, he can make plays yes..he's great when he runs straight. He's rare on this years game very rarely is anyone that tall that fast on this years game..

But here's the thing in a straight line he moves great, but he spins and jukes like shit his change of direction is poor, his agility in general is bad because he's so tall so I can't really make anyone miss, I can outrun them if I get behind them that's all.

Also how did you know I had that WR did you look LOL.....Diddy likes to call him Godzilla.

Thankfully I got some WR commits this year because after him I got nothing...

I'm sure you'll do fine being in Cali helps, I have an offline with USC almost all my players are from the state.

David.
12-29-2008, 05:44 AM
Yeah California recruiting is easy mode. I just have to compete with USC for freaking all my recruits heh. UCLA has built into a bit of a powerhouse too in your guys first 2 years. Theyre like a 91 now and are competing for a lot of my 5 star recruits.

Mecca
12-29-2008, 05:46 AM
That's one of the issues with being NC, my homestate is not recruiting rich I only have 11 instate players......I have as many players from Georgia and Florida as I do my homestate..but I opened pipelines to Texas and Alabama aswell....I'm trying to open ones to California and Ohio but I never have California players interested so it's hard...

David.
12-29-2008, 05:48 AM
yeah that's key to really making recruiting easy get a pipeline in cal, florida, and texas. If you get those 3 you're golden, you don't really need anywhere else.

Mecca
12-29-2008, 05:49 AM

I still do get a kick that I'm the only team who doesn't have a RB leading his team in receiving.

I wanna see it cause I wanna see my commits I had some guys soft and some visits coming.....could be a big few weeks I just pulled down the top QB a 5 star WR and a 5 star athlete.

12-29-2008, 06:11 AM
I have more of a problem with my QB....he makes enough plays and he's fine in the intermediate game but when I try to go downfield he makes kind of blah throws, sometimes they're good sometimes not.

I got so use to being SC when I could literally throw strikes 50 yards down the field for huge plays, I need one of those QB's.

David.
12-29-2008, 06:13 AM
My qb is pretty solid, nothing great, but he gets the job done. My o-line is filled with road graders though one of the best o-lines I've played with. I think my RG is like a 96 and has something like 30 pancake blocks already.

David.
12-29-2008, 06:32 AM
Yeah I don't even bother with either. I usually just convert HB's and WR's to FB's and TE's respectively. Sucks because they can almost never block, but it's better than getting walk-ons.

I'm fine moving to the ACC but from the scores I've seen Mecca put up it looks like I could have the 85 friggin Bears and still get stomped.

Naw, you're pretty good. I think you could challenge him with a good team. Mecca is really, really good at this game, for sure. He needs someone to challenge him. ;) But I was just kidding. You take whatever team you want.

BTW, the other day he stomped some top 10 team (maybe even shut out). I also stomped a top 10 team. I believe I may have even shut out OU. Some games are like that against CPU teams. CPU is not nearly as difficult as playing a human, IMO.
