Anyway, my offense, like yours, wasn't doing **** all game. Sloppy conditions, Florida had been up 7-0 most of the game and I simply could not catch a break on offense. On multiple occasions on 3rd down I'd have run the ball for a first and get called for holding. I finally got on the board in the 3rd quarter after kicking a field goal. 7-3, they punt and as my luck would have it, I muff the punt and recover at my own 1 yard line. I break open the drive with an 8 yard run and then complete a pass for about 15 yards. From there, I move down the field steadily until about the 44. I run into 4th and 13 and the 4th quarter has just begun. I'm too far away to kick a field goal, too close to punt, and I need points. I go for it, and miraculously convert. Later on that drive I'd kick another field goal.
This is where things get crazy. Florida's ensuing possession after the field goal to make it 7-6 stalls out. I'm thinking game over. There is only about 2 minutes left, so I'm set. Thing don't get off to a good start, and 1 holding call and a sack later, I'm looking at about a 4th and 22. ****. game over. I don't convert and Florida has just 1:40 on the clock to kill. I had only 1 timeout at this point. I say **** it and just bring the house on the first 2 downs. I get them to 3rd and 8. There is only about 30 seconds left now. ALL THEY HAVE TO DO TO WIN IS RUN THE BALL AND THE GAME IS OVER... but they don't. They go for a pass and my corner deflects it. This was at approximately their own 40. They punt the ball and I return it 14 yards to my own 34. 25 seconds. no timeouts. Game over right? Wrong. I just throw a prayer downfield to my speed receiver and amazingly, he's got 2 steps on the corner and there is no safety help over the top. I catch it and am pushed out of bounds at their 27 with 11 seconds left. I simply kick the field goal and go up 9-7, kickoff, and watch them attempt a hail mary.
Why they didn't just run the clock out is beyond me. It's not like I'm playing on freshman either, this is All-American. Whatever though, 1-0 looks a whole lot better than 0-1. I'll take it. Better lucky than good.
Im not a great player by any stretch, so this comes with a grain of salt, but i cant get anything going online at all. really gotta sharpen up my user control as far as defending bombs, seems like they are the weapon of choice aling with screens thus far. im still experimenting with teams and styles which is part of my problem, but then thats when i have the most fun with the game.
I agree about switching to defensive backs for user picks. They don't strife very good at all... And I have auto strife off. Given up more than a few big plays trying to get user picks. Of course, the CPU seemingly never catches gimme picks either. I just try to to switch to the DB at the last second to pick it off.
I added Clemson and Texas A&M to the SEC in my dynasty so they bumped the SEC schedule to 9 game. Add that to Miami and FSU on the non-conference portion and my schedules are death. But I think I'm gonna have to bump the difficulty setting from All-American up to Heisman. I'm already going 14-0 with a sophomore QB.
But when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was, "Stannis! Stannis! Stannis!"
i used to love dynasty on the old gens but for some reason now i cannot get into it. i love the idea of building up a crappy program and what not, but for some reason i lose interest very quickly, i think it is the complexity of recruiting ( maybe just how i perceive it?) and the time it actually takes to run through the offseasons. maybe i am just impatient but ive become more of a play it now type. one thing i can note as a positive in about 15 games so far online i havent really run into much "cheese" or annoying gameplay tendencies. I CANNOT JPWEVER GET OVER THE LACK OF CROWD NOISE AND IMPACT ON THE GAME. any of you guys on ps3 can add me... XXfueledbyhateXX
i've enjoyed it more this year than I have in awhile, but agree, the defense is still pretty weak when you let the cpu take over...i've had quick a few long TDs against me b/c my CB was out of position badly....
