    Wildcats win their 10th straight as they narrowly escape their bitter rival Sun Devils at home. Once again the Arizona ground game over powers while their pass D just looks lost. QB Javelle Allen only threw 5 passes in the entire game trying to keep the ball out of the future NFL 1st round pick Taylor Kelly's hands. It worked to a certain extent but once Kelly got the ball he had the Cats secondary reeling. Arizona managed a FG late to go ahead but left a huge 19 seconds on the clock which coupled with a horse shit PI call on an ASU Hail Mary was enough time for ASU to tie it up. OT Defenses are still looking terrible as they both allow scores. ASU scores second and elects to go for two. On a terrible play call they try to read option with junior qb Eubank and it gets blown up in the back field. Hind sight is 20/20 but I think it ASU had a mulligan they'd leave their fate in senior QB Kelly's hands as he hadnt been stopped all game.

    Huge win for Arizona and I think I hear Alonzo knocking on the door?

    Snuck out of another one.

    Need to get Watford back ASAP. Offense doesn't look the same with him and Jennings both out. Looks like Watford will be back for the ACC championship.

    Anyways was able to rely on the D and pull out a W, with a last second FG.


    Looks to be a rematch with Maryland for the ACC.

    I don't like that Bama is still undefeated, makes me worry that IF I get past Virus there could be 3 undefeated teams.

    Looks like I am a Penn State and Auburn fan this week!

    If I know for 100% sure a team is running left and I tell everyone to run straight that way so they do and I'm right then it should get blown up. But if they run right doesn't it go for big gains? What about pass commit? If I don't use it my guys fall for play action every time?

    I don't know where I stand on it. I've tried run middle commit before and still watched FB dive easily score from the two yard line. I kinda think if you are so predictable that a guy feels safe calling a run commit then maybe you should mix it up more. Defense is already at a huge disadvantage on this years game.

    I've always thought changing to the DB's and ball hawking was pretty unsim but banning it seems a little rediculous too. I don't know man a lot of things on this game are not super sim and I try to ignore it and just play.

    Teams in real life don't play quarters on 3rd and 1.

    Run commit is a crutch.

    Quarters vs goaline FB dive on 3rd down is an auto first down regardless of run commit. Right?

    I guess we could vote on it but I've played 2 full seasons in this league and one game against cookie and never felt like I was cheated. The pass coverage is the only thing that gets me fired up and that's not a user thing that's an ea fuck up.

    Dudes get way too worked up man. Just remember its a video game. The only thing I was sure of after I played Cookie was that he was better than me at this game. And so is Virus and so is Hub and so is Brax. I just don't take it personal. I have kids and a mortgage man. This game is just a way for me to get a small football fix.

    Ding dong the witch is dead.

    Penn State 38
    Indiana 35

    Great game except for all the run committing. Yes I did burn him quite a bit, but IMO run committing takes a lot of the skill out of the game. It looks more like arcade then SIM football. You shouldn't be confident that you will stop the run on short yardage with quarters or 3 man line D.

    Okay off my soapbox.

    You are very good too.

    No issues with your offense at all.

    I just have a philosophic problem with run committing.
