    Just days after South Carolina fires their head coach, they were required to take the field against heavily favored Alabama. A team with apparently so much talent that they replaced 10 starters on defense with preseason all americans. Anyhoo Coach Breon had just minutes to install his depth chart and offense before the game and the biggest move had to be inserting true freshman and 5 star recruit Marcus Lattimore into the starting HB position. The two teams took to the rain soaked field and it looked rough early as Bama was nearly unstoppable getting out to 21-7 lead halfway through the 2nd quarter. Thats when Coach Breon took after his idol Mike Westhoff and said "if you fuckers on defense dont pick it up I will cut all you right on the field." After that little outburst the defense allowed only a 45 yard field goal the rest of the game. Stephen Garcia went 11-17 for 205 yards and 2 touchdowns and Marcus Lattimore scored the game winning touchdown from 5 yards out with only 19 seconds remaining. "A great win but one thing we must work on is our defensive backs hands, twice we dropped sure pick sixes and that could come back to haunt us later in the year if we dont capitalize on these opportunities."

    WTF? lol How did you play a game and I haven't sent out an invite?

    Well my season is officially over. The injury bug has struck and there is no way I can recover lol. I just lost to Kentucky 38-12 lol. You wanna know how you lose to Kentucky? Here's how, it's simple math:

    Auburn's Season Injury Report:

    M. Fannin (starting RB) out 8 more weeks
    O. McCalebb (backup RB) out 2 more weeks
    C. Newton (starting QB) out 3 more weeks
    T. Stallworth (KR I had in palce of MCCalebb lol) out 3 more weeks

    PLUS

    In game injuries against Kentucky:

    D. Adams (starting WR) was out for game
    M. Dyer (3rd string RB) was out for 2 qtrs(got hurt in 3rd so basically rest of game)
    Several other smaller injuries to key players throughout the game.

    PLUS

    Backup QB turning into a turnover machine lol. He had 3 fumbles but only lost 1 of them. The other 2 fumbles were key fumbles on scrambles for first down. One of them nobody even touched him. I dived for the out of bounds marker towards the end of the first half and he fumbled out of bounds lol. He also had 4 int's to go with those, 1 of which was my fault. The other 3 were to wide open men but either badly overthrown or underthrown right to defenders hands.

    PLUS

    10 drops by receivers. That's right 10!!! That's not counting the ones where a defender hit them and they dropped it. These were just straight up drops and I'll say at least 6 of them were for first downs lol. I'll even venture further to say that at least 4 or 5 of those 6 were on 3rd down that would have kept the drive going. I don't know if it was because he was a backup or what, but they just wouldn't catch the ball.

    EQUALS

    loss to Kentucky. Sad

    It was horrible. I have never been so close to throwing my controller. One series went like this:

    1st down - Over throw wide open receiver
    2nd down - drop by HB wide open in the flat
    3rd down - dropped by wide open TE 15 yds down field
    4th down - punt lol

    I saw something else that really pissed me off as well. I know why the run game is so hard to stop for some people. On run plays, the defenders just stand there waiting to get blocked. It's like they don't see the RB with the ball coming towards them. They just stand there. Then when they finally make a move, they get blocked. The next time the cpu gets a big run, go look at the replay and see what your other defenders are doing on the play. I did this a few times and was getting real pissed off so I stopped looking at them. Just go take a look. I definitely wanna change the user rush defense slider for next week. Maybe bump it up 5 points. The same goes for user pass block as well. I have no complaints about user pass blocking, but seems a lot of you guys do so I can bump that up as well.

    Anyway, this is my second loss and it looks like there will be plenty more to come with most of my offensive firepower hurt lol. Maybe my backup will play like he has some sense at home next week lol. Oh great just in time for clark too, so I have to hear his mouth when he wins lol. Fucking Awesome!!!!! Neutral

    PRESS CONFERENCE

    Hi im Erin Andrews and im here live with Head Football Coach DDA after a big 38-10 win over Coach CT21 and his FSU football team. Well Coach how did you pull this oneoff? Well Erin it started off a lil scary and both teams thrown int on there first drive. I ask Jacory Harris whats the matter and he said nothing Coach. I promise I wont throw another int for the rest of the game and boy was he telling the truth. With a lil bit of option, running, and passing the offense could not be stop. Coach how did you shut there offense down. With my DE coming off the end i didnt have to blitz and my CB catching 4 int. But im sure we will see them again in the conf championship so hopefully the outcome with stay the same.

    All week, if you would have asked any A&M player how they felt going into the rivalry game at Arkansas, they would have told you disrespected. Starting off the season in dominating fasion and not being ranked ticked them off a little and they wanted to prove the doubters wrong.

    How do you like them now?

    Texas A&M walked out with a 59-22 victory against Arkansas and proved to the doubters that they are for real. The 1Q was close, and it looked like we would be in for a close game in the 40s.

    Then the floodgates opened.

    TAMU went on to score 28 straight points to pull ahead. They were led by Jerrod Johnson, whose 77 yd run in the first minute of the 2Q swung momentum A&M's way. Johnson had an amazing game, going 20-24 for 343 yds and 4 TDs, also rushing for 104 yds and 3 TDs. After the game, we asked Johnson about the Heisman and he said that doesn't matter, he just wants to bring A&M its 2nd National title.

    The defense also stepped up, forcing 4 turnovers, including 3 on the 1 yd line, that made the difference in the game. Multiple players we talked to on that side of the ball let it be known that they were tired of being looked down on because of their schedule and they wanted to make a statement. It's safe to say that they made a statement.

    MORE CROOTS!!!!!

    3* DT Andrew Lee out of Saginaw, TX commits to A&M. He is raw, but has a lot of upside, and his 6'4" 290lb frame will help stuff the middle

    4* OLB Charles Walker and his 4* DE cousin Kareem are both A&M leans at this point with visits this week to the school.

    Good week for the defensive side of the ball. Recruiting might be over with come next weekd pending any early departures.

    Sorry man, I don't trust people enough to give my login info to them. Yes, I have trust issues. Only 2 people have my info, kid and my brother. I'm gonna keep it that way. I am genuinely sorry that you had to wait even though everyone was done, but that's just how it is sometimes. Very Happy.

    **sigh** Ok, Clarky we have to play to see who is gonna have the worst user record in the dynasty. Here's the deal, I have a fantasy draft at 830 pm. I get home around 615 or 620. So I can either play you at 630 or 7(before the draft) or at 930 or 10(after the draft). It's the same today and tomorrow so it's up to you what you wanna do. Just let me know.

    I'm not going over 70, and I only have 8 seniors. Plus the CPU needs it.

    A&M wins 52-24, but they took their foot off the gas after the first when it was 28-0. The passing game struggled until the 4th, but the rushing game picked up the slack with 6 TDs from 4 players.

    I'm getting the title I was suppose to win my first year in the dynasty on 09 with FSU if I didn't have to sim one game, the shit is too easy for us.

    Yep and it fucking sucks. Sad I usually own the west, but because I only have 1 RB that can play, I have to throw the ball a whole lot more than I want to keep him from being injured. He still got injured in the Kentucky game and I'm gonna tell you running with nothing but the FB fucking sucks. It totally fucking sucks. Anyway, I'd rather run the ball to set up the pass game, not the other way around. I can't do that now and it is fucking me up.......big time.

    This may wind up being my worst recorded season ever in NCAA football. I got Clark this week, which could end being a loss with the injuries. The same for LSU next week as well. Then I get a few people back before I have to play joker, which could be a loss with a fully healthy team. That's not even counting the surprise losses like the Kentucky's and stuff. I could reasonably end up with 4 or 5 losses this season. 4 or 5 losses for splff!? That's unheard of!!!! We'll see what happens these next few weeks lol.

    As long as one of you or Clark can make the sec champ game, playing a user is more fun. Plus I'd rather not play Bama lol

    Huskers stampede Texas
    In a game that wasn't as close as the score, the unranked (how the hell?) Nebraska Cornhuskers dusted off the ninth-ranked Texas Longhorns, 45-31, in Lincoln, Neb.
    The Huskers showed they were going to play this game aggressively from the opening drive as coach Urban Legend decided to send his offense back onto the field for a fourth and inches situation. The decision paid off to the tune of a 59-yard touchdown by Roy Helu for a Husker lead.
    Texas came back to the tune of 14-unanswered points, but the Huskers quickly matched.
    This time it was true freshman quarterback Taylor Martinez on a 47 yard touchdown scramble.
    With a Helu touchdown in the second quarter, the Huskers would assume the lead for good. Nebraska recovered a fumble in the end zone after a field goal with five seconds to go in the half to take a 31-17 halftime lead.
    Pounding the ball was the theme of the second half for the Huskers and Helu was the benefactor, as he went over 200 yards on the day. The biggest of his runs was a 68 yard scamper in the third quarter to break the game open.
    Texas battled back to make it look respectable in the end, but the Huskers sealed the game with a touchdown pass to David Young from Martinez for a three touchdown lead.
    Two late touchdowns for the Longhorns made the final 45-38.
    "Hats off to Taylor and Roy," Legend said. "Taylor isn't playing like a freshman anymore. He's a little bit more than that to this team, and you can't even sum up what Helu means to the Huskernation. 215 yards, three touchdowns and two really big ones - sorta speaks for itself."
    There looks to be a showdown brewing between the Huskers, Kansas and Texas A&M for braggging rights in the Big 12. Who woulda thunk it?
