So we have moved on to the second season of our Dynasty. I have advanced to the preaseason and the schedules have been set. I will drop the new Head to Head schedules in shortly. Any H2H matchups should have flipped the home team and i may have added a couple of matchups to make up for players who dropped out. Everyone should have 4-5 H2H matchups and that does not include Conference Championship games and Bowl games.

Congratulations to CruzChaos's LSU Tigers for winning the BCS National Championship and the SEC Championship

Number of Teams: 12
Type of Dynasty: Various Standard Conferences-
We will be using any team that you like. I will for the most part keep all the conferences intact and would suggest teams from conferences with a Championship game (preferably Big 10, ACC, SEC, PAC12 and now the Big East but not dismissing MAC or Conference USA- (I have edited the Big East and the Big 12 to include 12 teams and they will have a Championship game also.) I will set the Dynasty up so that players will have a minimum of 5 head to head games. Most will also be able to have a conference championship game that is also a head to head matchup as long as human teams win their division. There is also possibility for a head to head Bowl matchup as long as human teams win their conferences.

Online rosters used: GatorBait and Blocko ( GatorNuts0208 )
- I've used these guys in the past and they really put time and effort into it. Rosters are still being worked on but they released a first veersion for everyoe to go over. They are currently being updated. So far they are the most accurate PS3 rosters out there. I will review the teams in conference before I start the Dynasty to make sure they are accurate, if you want to research your team to verify let me know. for more info check the links.
http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/for...Roster-Updates (http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/forums/content.php?491-NCAA-Football-12-Roster-Info)

Rules/Guidelines : Avoid douchey playing. Most of the rules are common sense but I'm throwing these up just to make sure there is no question when it comes to the rules. I just wanna avoid the superfluous 2 point conversions and punt/FG Fakes. We all don't have to be Les Miles.

Playbooks
Offensive: Teams PB
Defensive: Any

Sportsmanship
Respect your opponent & our Dynasty!

Gameplay
SIM play. Scrambling will not be tolerated in an abusive fashion. Realistically get out of the pocket. If the defense goes into 'all coverage mode' and your QB has no one to through to, you can make a run. Keep it realistic & play SIM style ball. Also, no excessive running up of the score. Statistics and awards can be scewed (and we don't want that)!

Try not to restart games!

These may seem like a lot of Gameply Rules, but we are a SIM league, so you should already be playing this way. Just in case there is any controversy.

Rule 1. You can only use "Conservative Tempo" at the start of the 4th quarter whether you are winning or losing. You can also run the clock down to :01 at the start of the 4th quarter. Those are the only times that you can run the clock down.
Rule 2. You can no huddle whenever you want EXCEPT after an incomplete pass.
Rule 3. You can only choose a special teams defense when the other team chooses a special teams offense (FG attempt or Punt). You cannot come out on goal line in FG block.
Rule 4. All shifts are allowed when dealing with the defense. You can crash the line, bump in run, shift the LB's left or right,
Rule 5. You can also hot route your defense whenever you want as well.
Rule 6. The defensive line is to ONLY be moved within the AUTOMATIC SHIFTS provided in the game NO MANUAL MOVEMENT of D-line. You are not allowed to move any DL-man, either laterally or vertically, manually before the snap. After the snap feel free to move him back into coverage.
Rule 8. When running the HB screen pass, you MUST throw the ball to your HB, run with your QB if its covered or throw the ball away. You CANNOT throw to the wide reciever.


4th Downs
Rule 1. A team may go for it on 4th down and inches at any time in the game, whether they are leading, tied, or trailing.
Rule 2. A team may go for it on 4th down and 1 yard if they are past the 50 and inside their opponents territory, at any time in the game, whether they are leading, tied, or trailing.
Rule 3. A team may go for it on 4th and any number of yards once they have got into "no mans land" between their opponents 30-40 yard line.
Rule 4. A team may go for it on 4th down and any number of yards from anywhere on the field if they are trailing in the 4th quarter by any amount.
Rule 5. A team may go for it on 4th down if it's the end of the 2nd quarter and if it's under 2 minutes in the 2nd quarter
Rule 6. A team may go for it on 4th down regardless of yards to go or location if it's under 2 minutes in the 4th quarter
(Any other time must be a field goal or a punt)

Fake FG/Punt
Rule 1. Only 1 Fake FG/Punt allowed in a game.

2-point Conversions
Rule 1. The player must disclose he is going to go for two points immediately in order to allow the opponent the opportunity to defend it unless it is a fake. If it is a fake the above rule allowing for only 1 fake per game is in effect.
Rule 2. A team may go for a 2-point conversion if it will tie the game.
Rule 3. A team may go for a 2-point conversion if it is the 4th quarter and the 2-point conversion will give them a 3 or 7-point lead.
Rule 4. A team may go for a 2 point conversion if it will make the point differential a multiple of 3 or 7 (ex. Down 21-12, a team can go for 2 to make it 21-14 or if up 18-10, and going for 2 would give a 10-point lead, etc)
(Any other time the XP must be kicked)

Position Changes
Before any questionable position changes, you will need to consult the members of the OD for understanding and accepting of the change. Anything built into the game is legal (ex. Dual HB Swap or Tackle Over Formation).

All rules are subject to change depending on how NCAA Football 11 performs.
Just remember don't do what would piss you off if it is used against you and most of all have fun. Do what Makes Sense

1 game a week is easy to keep track of. 2 games a week can be tough on some people. I would also like to speed things up and I know Yawmush sticks hard to his no gaming on Sunday rule and I have weekends where my call interferes. What about a game every 5 days - in roughly 2 weeks we would get 3 games in - 6 games a month. We all know that there are days that everyone gets games in early which would also help get things done.

Also @ r2 are you finishing off the preseason tonight? I'd like to finalize things and get going with the regular season.

cnicholls44
12-02-11, 03:59 PM
we can keep it at a week, just make an effort to get your stuff done early, then we can advance early. If it doesn't happen, then we will just wait until the week is up.

12-03-11, 08:06 AM
Week 1 is ready to go. I'll avance once the last person is done oron next Friday night. I request you guys try and get it done within five days since I'd like to see how much faster things would go if we stuck to that timeframe.

r2 - I don't think it cuts players once we get past the cut players stage. On the depth chart it won't list all your players. If you edit your depth chart you will see that all the players are there. if you don't rotate them in they will redshirt or transfer.

cruzness
12-04-11, 06:58 PM
A little off topic but it is something that is burning a whole in my brain. After watching Oklahoma State bury Oklahoma I think they deserve the BCS berth against LSU. Sorry but even though I think Bama might be a better team they already lost to LSU and I don't wanna see a rematch.

Crazy good match last night. I threw 4 INTs including a TAINT. I gave up a huge chunk of yards but managed to keep R2 out of the endzone once he hit the red zone. At the end I was down 24 - 17 but Tino threw a pick and gifted me the ball at the 20. I ended up gaining 3 total yards but making the field goal. On his next possession R2 went 3 and out and I drove down the field with him burning a couple of timeouts. As I was inside the 20 I was stopped on 3rd and short but went for it on 4th and converted. On the next set of downs I ended up throwing my 4th and final INT, which was intercepted at the edge of the goal line. The defender automatically ran out to the 1 where my guys tackled him. I stopped R2 on 3 straight passes and then blocked his punt out of the end zone where I recovered it for a TD to put me up 27 - 24. On the next drive R2 throws a game sealing INT to my stud FR SS (his second of the game) and I safely avoiding being an Eagle and took a couple of knees to close the game out. It was a crazy good match. The game rated it as an Instant Classic and gave it an A. Felt pretty great to FINALLY win one against you guys. :banana:

Great job with the come from behind win Flip. Also, I bet he was judging everyone based on how poorly I play.

Yeah, thanks.... and I lost my Heisman-candidate running back and best player on my team for the entire year in the first quarter. Pyrrhic victory, perhaps. I also spent an entire hour convincing this guy to stay at Michigan for his senior season. Ugh.

I had to change my entire offense when he went down. With him, I could pitch and run outside and even try an option every once in awhile. Without him, my backup is pretty much a glorified fullback. No pitches. No options.

I was having a terrible time passing the ball. I was mashing buttons and Robinson just wouldn't throw within the right timing. Johnny was running man coverage all night so timing was rather important. When I got down two touchdowns I really kind of gave up on passing. Too frustrating, too difficult with the off-timing. So I ran the ball and ran the ball. I'd run up the gut until he collapsed his entire line into the center and then I'd go off tackle. I'd have paid good money to hear his commentary during that fourth quarter when I was running a two minute drill, hurry-up offense with something like twelve-consecutive rushes up the middle of the field.

Either he wasn't having any lag issues passing or Oregon's offense is that good or Michigan's defense is that bad... (all of the above?) but he seemed to have no trouble throwing against my coverages. I had to blitz everyone just to make a difference. Twice I was trying to switch between blitzers and the delay caused me to unwittingly take control of the DB covering the receiver. And we know how that ends...

Really, though, I won because he got cocky with his passing game and tried to finish me off in the 4th... I intercepted on the goal line... and so it goes.

cruzness
12-09-11, 07:01 PM
cocky is a gentle way to put it. I've known him since high school. He has balls the size of watermelons and will tell you all about it. He texted me this morning about the game and mentioned about getting greedy and not beeing able to stop your running game - he wished he could have skipped Japan and spent 5 hours trying to keep Lamichael James.

Yawmush and I played our game, it was a one score game at the end of the third but I turned on the jets and won 42-21. I had less than 200 total yards on offense, but my 4 interceptions and red zone defense picked up the slack.

^ revenge for beating me last season @ your home field. (part one of a three part plan)
I kept mixing up blitzes, zone coverage and man to man coverage. found 3 effective defenses and rolled with those. My secondary is beastly.

calling timeout with 1 second on the clock with a big lead at the one yard line (so that the two opponents can have a verbal handshake without getting cut off) = -100 sportsmanship points

yes this happened. I was gonna take a knee but then nic jumps offsides. and we laugh. and I douchefully score from the half yard line. I was on edge throughout the game and I didn't feel good until I had a 3 score lead.

Your run defense and your running game came alive in the second half and you were still able to pick me off three times.

Nope everybody does have slight lag on the head to head games and it has been that way for the past 2 iterations. It is usually noticable on kicking, punting and on pass plays when your QB is under pressure and doesn't seem to get the ball out fast enough and takes a big sack or throws a wobbly pass.

I had a few sacks where couldn't get the ball out. I had a few throw the ball to X right after the snap. Usually they're harmless incompletions, but last night both got intercepted because instead of bullet passes they ended up in lobs.

Oh and then there's the 90 yard TD passes where I "switched" to my coverage player because I tried to switch pass rushers and the delay waited until the ball was airborne.

Fucking annoying. Three of these occasions directly resulted in FSU touchdowns last night.

It was a close game until the end at least when I had to force throws and do stupid shit to make up for other fucking annoying shit. Oh and then FSU padded some stats while I blitzed everyone because I was mad at my stupid shit and the fucking annoying shit.

And then I hopped on BFBC2 and blew shit up to make myself feel better.

So r2 and I start our game off I jump out to an early lead on the strength of 2 fumble recoveries (1 for a TD)and an INT. It's 28-0 with 5 minutes left in the half and my 16 month old boy wakes up. We stop the game to get a bottle going . I come back start the game and I thought I heard somethingfrom r2 and i throw an INT. He then gets a delay of game and I realize that he must not be @ the controls. He gets back on and we have a laugh once he finds out what happened. I then pause the game again and have to give the boy a bottle. We pause for 20 minutes and my boy decides to not go back to sleep, so I decide he just needs to watch me play. We try to continue the game and it turns out if you pause for too long the game will freeze up on you. We end up having to restart the game again.

When we restart the game r2 scores first but I eventually take a 28-7 halftime lead while being distracted by a loud 16 month old boy who is trying to get into everything. The first play in the second ended up being my favorite I started to the inside on the kickoff return and bounced to the outside for a 94 yard kick return TD. Final score was 50-20 in the second game. :dance: (Technically it was a 78-20 victory ;) )

I played johnnyblazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzze tonight...super frustrating.

It started out bad, I went 3 and out and he scored really easily. Then I had a longer drive and a really long run for a TD, then he scored like i wasn't even playing defense. I then had another long drive like 10-12 plays or something and scored...Then he fumbled and I drove and had to punt. then he threw and INT, but i again had to punt...then he drove down, and I stopped him so he had to kick a FG. I got the ball with like 19 seconds left and one TO and threw a really long pass that got me to the 28 with 3 second left to tie it before the half, but my kicker sucks, there is no way i would have made it so I had to go for it and threw and INT in the endzone...

He kept blitzing corners, so i had no time to pass at all, I literally had to snap and throw...once i started getting up to the line early, I was sending people in motion to figure out where it was coming from and that was working, but i had some drops too...shitty shitty shitty.

Second half started out and he drove on me easily, but my DEF was more effective when we got int he Red Zone, because the threat of him just heaving it up and out running my corners was gone, so i could blitz...I stopped him and he had to kick another FG, making it 27-21...then i drove for a while, but again had to punt...the next set of I got a sack on him, making it 2 and 23, then he threw a screen, over the middle for 13 yards. On third and 10, he threw another screen and my LB got him right at the 1st down marker...4th and inches on his own 30, up by 6...then he paused it and set me a PM "Im going for it" he ran a QB sneak, which i stuffed but he only needed inches, so he got it...from that point it was all him, it was liek the momentum had shifted. the next play he threw that screen again and all of my corners were already on the ground, because his WRs had been blocking, it went for like 70 yards and there was no coming back. I scored again, but i ended up throwning a bunch of picks I think the final score was 41-28.

Second half started out and he drove on me easily, but my DEF was more effective when we got int he Red Zone, because the threat of him just heaving it up and out running my corners was gone, so i could blitz...I stopped him and he had to kick another FG, making it 27-21...then i drove for a while, but again had to punt...the next set of I got a sack on him, making it 2 and 23, then he threw a screen, over the middle for 13 yards. On third and 10, he threw another screen and my LB got him right at the 1st down marker...4th and inches on his own 30, up by 6...then he paused it and set me a PM "Im going for it" he ran a QB sneak, which i stuffed but he only needed inches, so he got it...from that point it was all him, it was liek the momentum had shifted. the next play he threw that screen again and all of my corners were already on the ground, because his WRs had been blocking, it went for like 70 yards and there was no coming back. I scored again, but i ended up throwning a bunch of picks I think the final score was 41-28.

He has always been relentless with blitzes since the days of NFL Gameday on PS1 on the couch. It's frickin annoying.

okay, I'm calling bullshit on this game. I'm down 9-7 with 10 seconds to go on the 1 yard line, the clock is stopped. I line up for a field goal, flhype calls a timeout and ices me. I decide i'm going to let the play clock run out and move back 5 yards for a better angle. With 5 seconds to go on the play clock the computer hikes the ball and my kicker shanks it to the left. I lose. I didn't touch anything.

I don't know, I would've accepted if I lost due to a 10 second run off, that would've been my fault. This didn't give me a choice, it hiked the ball and shanked the kick without me touching the controller.

Im not sure how you guys want to do it, whether putting me on auto pilot or just simming my game for the next 2 weeks or so.

My wife is 32 weeks pregnant and the doctors have been concerned about her BP and swelling the last week or so. Yesterday at an appointment they were concerned she was preclamptic, so they sent her for some tests and decided that they were going to deliver the baby really early...they gave her some steroids and then transferred her to the bigger hospital that is more specialized for OB, when we got there they said no to delivering early, but she has to stay here for a couple weeks while they monitor her, so I will be staying on the couch with her for the next 2 weeks. I will be going home periodically, but I'm pretty sure I won’t have time to play any of my games while there so whichever way you guys decide, that's cool with me.

Both Mom and the baby are doing fine, no worries in that department...the only concerns are what will happen when she delivers, but that is hopefully a couple weeks away and we'll deal with that when we get there.

ok, you can take me off of Autopilot, I should be good to play my game this week...but if I'm the one holding you up go ahead and sim it.

Most of you guys are on facebook with me, so you already know, but just in case...Last week, my wife was preeclampsic and they ordered weeks of bed rest, but as the week went on, her blood pressure wouldn't go down, so they had to induce...and induce...and induce...36 hours later they did a C-section. All went well, mom is good and my daughter is doing very well. She was born at like 32 and 1/2 weeks, so she was 7+ weeks early and only weighed 3lbs 4 oz, but so far she has been doing much better than expected. She was breathing on her own less than a minute after being born and hasn't had any problems with that. They started her slowly on food, because they weren't sure her suck/swallow/breath reflex had developed yet, but she took a bottle and they have steadily increased the amount of food with not problems so far...she is awake, alert, and driving everyone in the NICU insane because she is so active. they had a littel board taped to her had to keep her IV in, because she kept grabbing it and she was using the board the other day to take her blinders off while under the UV light and has been trying to use it to peel the tape off of her upper lip. They have this "U" shaped cushion in the pod to keep her in place, and I have watched her kick it so hard, she slides 3-4 inches up, closer to the top of the pod...it is like she is pissed off and trying to escape...

The wife and i have been spending most of our time there, but we did stay at home last night, because my wife still isnt fully recoved and just needed a break, so I'm sure in the next few days, I should have an hour here or there, where i can play my game...but if not, sim it, it is cool.

So I was having a discussion this morning with flhype and figured I'd throw this up for your consideration. I was going to realign conferences next year but I wasn't sure which scenario would be best. There are 3 scenarios I was considering:

1. realign things to be a bit more like what the conference realignment would be in real life. In other words. Syracuse and PITT to the ACC. West Virginia and TCU to the Big 12. TAMU and Mizzou to SEC. there would be a couple of exceptions since I would want to keep the Big 12s conference championship game and I would take away the Big East automatic BCS Bowl bid. ( The pros are we all have a shot at conference and national titles and the top recruits and i have a lot of flexibility with the nonconference schedules. The cons here become that we end up with 2 conferences with only one user controlled team -SEC and Big 10 , and one conference with 3 user controlled teams - ACC) Big 12 may only become 2 teams since Oregon may drop out due to business travel arrangements later this year.

2. We move around and take over a conference kind of like we did with NCAA11. We take over the Big 12 and move teams into divisions in the confernce. and we play against as many of the others as we can. The pros are bragging rights. The cons are that only one or two people have a shot at the conference and national championship. And we may be blanked out of the national championship if we all beat up on each other and some cheeser team goes undefeated (Boise...)

3. Leave it alone and just rotate around the nonconference games so we have different opponents.In other words play some of the other user controlled teams we have not played against.

gimme your input or suggestions or what you think of these.

shumway
01-25-12, 04:18 PM
If we were able to each have our own conference, would it be impossible to schedule all of the matches against each other? The only thing I had going for me my first season was recruiting went well because Texas was 6* right away. After I sucked it up the first season I ended up 5* and it will probably only go down. I like being able to get my ass handed to me or not against you guys but still having a good shot at the conference title so that prestige and/or a good bowl game are still possible.

If we all end up in one conference, we should make it like the SEC with realignment. If that is the case, I would like the option to possibly start over picking a team from scratch. Hint, it wouldn't be Texas.

01-26-12, 02:12 PM
That sounds like an interesting take. I like it better than all of us in one conference because it would eliminate one of the other BCS conferences going undefeated. and it still lets us The only issue becomes I can definitely set it up so that we can play one person for sure in the other division of the conference by making you guys the annual rival but the other team is a tossup. The other problem is this works well with eight teams but seven makes things unbalanced and i am pretty sure johnnnyblazzze will be stepping out.

On one play, they threw the ball 30 yards downfield and the ball was caught out of bounds. I got called for roughing the passer so they gave them the ball 15 yards from the point of the incomplete pass. So it was a 45 yard penalty. I was losing 45-40 with 3 minutes left but I pulled out a win.

Something similar happened with me against Missouri earlier in the season. I couldn't stop them for anything. Barely managed to pull out a 38-35 win.

@cruz I am almost completely done with recruiting and will try to play my game tonight.

I got a text from johnblaze the night he beat Mizzou - 'Mizzou is badass. Couldn't stop them. just had to outlast them and really pour it on at the end.'

Thanks for that. Glad to know I wasn't the only one struggling to take them down. Baylor was similar, except it was easy to injure RG3. With him out they aren't nearly as deadly.

Smacked Texas Tech around. If not for 2 BS bombs and a bogus TAINT they would have had a whole 3 points. Now we're waiting on flhype and r2.

i think you need some competition in the SEC

Flhype has recruited a coworker to join us next season and he will be handling Georgia. On top of that - now captain Oregon is talking like he may hang around another season. If only we could get a team into the Big 10 things would be perfect.

I might be able to convince someone to take a team in the Big 10. He hasn't played a football game in years but expressed interest when I first mentioned the league to him.

Pursue it. It'd be great to have another Big 10 team. And if he wants another team instead we can make it fit.

Tell him there are other players like him, i.e. me. Maybe we could be in the same league together and Cruz could re-name it the Big Pansies or something.

I'm happy to take up to the limit of 12. The only difference is that it becomes more work for me to balance it out - trust me I am more than happy to oblige. The sooner I know who is in and what team they want, the better as I can map out the schedule before we get to the offseason. Same applies to anyone who is thinking about changing teams. Just remember seniority gets dibs. (I think yawmush mentioned something about changing his team.)

And don't worry about uneven conferences johnnyblazzzzzzzzze proposed the idea of Oregon being an independent team (ala Notre Dame ) and playing a tougher head to head schedule if needed to help balance things out.

@cruz Ok, I'll tell him he can play. He is a bigger UT fan than I. If he wants them, I'll give them to him.

Also, the week is ready to advance, woohoo!

That's fine. You will finish out the season and let me know who you want to switch to. PM me if you wanna keep it under wraps.

Sweet. I haven't seen flhype today so I had no idea. I'll advance things when I get home early in the evening.

I have another thing to throw out there as food for thought. I know the next NCAA game does not come out until July but I was wondering if there are no huge innovations coming for the 2013 version of the game. Why make everyone pick it up? As far as I know the servers for 2011 are still running. i may log in tonight just to check. How does everyone feel about extending the life of the game a few extra months instead.

Would anybody be interested in switching this over to Madden next year so we can have a true playoff?

I like recruiting and the ability to improve your team over playing with my favorite Pros, but, am probably still not down for the next iteration of this game. Just depends. I'm cool w/ sticking with 2012 for awhile.

Most heinous of all annoyances took place in my game against Iowa. Robinson runs like 20 yards to the end zone, dives. The ball is clearly over the goal line. Hell his torso is clearly over the goal. He gets hit and fumbles, recovered by Iowa. I challenge that shit. No go.

Okay ****monkeys.

Then they start recovering Onside kicks and the quarterback becomes the Hulk. I can't tackle him. Hit stick mashings bounce off like gnats. The entire fourth quarter continues like this. They pull within 8 and I'd been up by 30. When you're calling the AI a "fucking ****monkey" things have taken a terrible turn.

Our newbie is confirmed. I got Cruz's code and the used NCAA. As I said, he hasn't played a football game in ages so he'll need a decent team to get started. We can just move whatever team he takes into the Big Ten, correct?
