To avoid confusion with the other PS3 Dynasty Thread, I created this thread. This thread will be dedicated to only this dynasty. As of now, there are 4, maybe 5 depending on Scottyboy, spot remaining. Also, I have decided to switch from Miami to Missouri...

Yo, we need more people.

Dude, I won a game today (with BYU against WVU!) and did not receive a win. Boo. Yesterday I got DCd because of a lightning strike. My record should be 38-25 but is instead 36-26.

Well, you have your choice between any available SEC or BIG 12 team. I'd prefer it if you picked a BIG 12 team because I think that will be tougher to fill, but the choice is entirely up to you.

Okay, since Eaglez.Fan backed out, we now need 1 more team. However, since Oklahoma was going to be original choice before Eaglez.Fan stole it from me, I am going to switch from Missouri to Oklahoma.

So, the updated list:

2.) Aftermath (PSN- InuDan): Florida State
3.) DLionALL (PSN- J33zydaLion): Virginia

1.) Islandboy843 (PSN- Skillet843): Georgia
2.) FatJJ44 (PSN- FatJJ44): Auburn
3.) saintsfan912 (PSN- d0ntgivea): Florida
4.) neko4 (PSN- ninety6): LSU

Come on now, we just need one more player! I think Ness has a ps3, I'm gonna pm him...

Is there a time limit set per game week?

Smokey Joe
08-06-2008, 04:00 PM
the league will be started within the hour! I would prefer people to be done with the offseason/preseason by saturday!

Smokey Joe
08-06-2008, 05:43 PM
Okay, it is officially created! Just a couple questions before we move ahead to game week...

1, do you guys want 5 minute quarters or longer? I personally feel 5 minute is good. Also, do you guys want the difficulty to be All-American or Heisman? This one, I don't know about, because the CPU is pretty easy, IMO, to beat in All-American. Whichever one you guys want is fine by me.

Lastly, should I customize the early part of the schedules so that some non-conference games vs. ****** schools turn into some non-conference games vs. real people?

I am hoping that by Saturday we can have everyone ready to advance to game week. Since Aftermath is gone until the 13, I am planning on advancing to week 2 on the 14 or 15 (just to be fair).

Let me make this clear, if any of you are not active or miss a week without letting me know, I will neg. rep you!!!

neko4
08-06-2008, 07:14 PM
I think All-American is best, that way the CPU wont be making all the plays for you defense

-5 min
-heisman
-take off all FCS opponents. That skews stats heavily, see Tyrod Taylor's 17 TDs I just put up in the other dynasty. And I could have thrown more.
-schedule normal teams, scheduling real opponents early on takes a while to complete each week.

neko4
08-06-2008, 10:00 PM
yeah take out all FCS teams and also make sure everyone schedules atleast one other user outside their conference. But only one to help keep things going like bama said

Smokey Joe
08-06-2008, 10:22 PM
I'm going to go with Heisman, just for the sole fact that people won't be able to beat up on the CPU. I like AA for user vs. user games, but there will be more user vs. CPU games...

I will take out all FCS opponents and schedule one user vs. user for each team during their non-conference weeks.

FatJJ44
08-07-2008, 01:32 PM
If u could try and make everyones schedule difficulty the same like an A or something

Smokey Joe
08-07-2008, 05:32 PM
If u could try and make everyones schedule difficulty the same like an A or something
I'm just going to get rid of the FCS opponents and replace them with a user vs. user game for everyone (and most users are in the top 25 except two or three). The teams, I think, with the easier strength of schedule are the teams with 2 FCS opponents, so I'll give them an opponent ranked no higher than 20.

So, in the end, all of the schedule difficulties should be roughly the same. If someone's is easier or tougher, that just the luck of the draw I guess.

Smokey Joe
08-07-2008, 06:03 PM
I just realized that we have an odd number of teams, so one user will have 2 extra user vs. user non-conference games. To decide who gets the extra user vs. user game, I will take whichever team that has 2 FCS opponents, and give them the extra user vs. user game. To decided which team with 2 FCS opponents gets the extra game, whichever one has the least of amount of user vs. user games will. Whoever has the easiest schedule will be the tiebreaker.

CLong4Heisman
08-08-2008, 12:30 AM
If its not too late, I volunteer to have the two user games.

Smokey Joe
08-08-2008, 12:38 AM
Okay, I fixed the schedules so no team faces any of those FCS garbage teams. It was a lot tougher then I thought because I only wanted to switch FCS teams with other teams that were also facing FCS teams, and leave the games vs. D-I teams alone. If you have any complaints, comments, or suggestions, please let me know.

Smokey Joe
08-08-2008, 12:44 AM
If its not too late, I volunteer to have the two user games.
CLong4Heisman, it turned out you weren't really a factor for any of the schedule changing as, IIRC, you didn't have any FCS opponents. You only have 2 user vs. user games, but if you really want another one, I could remove your week 13 bye and have you face Florida (who face an FCS team week 13). However, this would mean you would have 13 games on the season.

I personally would prefer it if we leave it how I have it now, because Wisconsin also faces an FCS team week 13, and I don't think it would be all that fair for you to have 13 games while the rest of us only have 12.

But, if other users don't have a problem with it and if the guy who has Florida wants to do it, I see no problem with allowing it to happen.

FYI, every team has at least 2 user vs. user games, and only one team has more than 4. The team with more then 4 is Miami who actually have 6 games vs. other users. I think the majority of users only have 3 though.

08-08-2008, 09:02 PM
VT really isn't a great team in NCAA '09 initially. Our offensive line is criminally underrated, sarcasm present of course but it is much, much better than they have it rated.

Our runningbacks are vastly underrated as well.

Greg Boone, the tight end/ h-back, is very good in the game but his overall is a bit low.

Jason Worilds should be faster.

But that will all change. I contemplated redshirting Tyrod, but decided against it. I need him.

Smokey Joe

week 1 has begun people!

BamaFalcon59
08-10-2008, 08:19 AM
It is possible to see the schedule. I forgot how, but it is easy.

Anyways...

I'm pretty good (level 8), but I played horrible this game. I won 42-10, but I threw 5 picks.I only ran my RB once, because I wanted to boost Tyrod's stats after throwing 4 first half picks. I did, threw up like 380 yards 4 passing TD 2 rushing TD 78%, but the five picks still sucked. Maybe I wasn't used to Heisman, IDK.

Four commits already. Three are two stars (I always offer any in state players who have me first), but one four star OLB.

illmatic is on the bubble for getting kicked out. I have been sending him messages on the PS3 and even PM'ed him, but no response. I had a feeling it was a bad idea adding someone who has a grand total of 18 posts and is never on to the league.

How about tonight? I have a baseball game in a hour and then I have some stuff to do after that, and I won't be back until 7-ish.

If tonight is no good for you neko, it'd have to be Tuesday. The only time free I have for monday is maybe early in the morning (I have some stuff to do for football), and then I have some stuff to do in the afternoon, and then I'm off to go to the Sox game later on. I could maybe squeeze it in sometime in the afternoon depending on what time I get back from football. Or we can do it early in the morning at about 8...

BamaFalcon59

Anyone here think they are the snuff?

Personally I think I'm pretty good, but I struggle against players level 10 and up. For a while I used USC, but decided that playing UF every game wasn't too fun (although I did pretty well against them, they are so predictable). So after going from no ranked teams to no top ten teams (everyone used number 11 Clemson haha) I now do teams 85 overall and under and use Virginia Tech., who have a solid defense but the offensive line is so underrated as well as the runningbacks. It irritates me.

Anyways, I'm ready to win championships.

neko4
08-10-2008, 08:02 PM
Im pretty good with Florida and Texas Tech. I only have a 1-9 record, but i wouldve won 4 straight had 3 guys not quit on me (i swear!). Im fairly predictable when I use Florida. I stay in their signature formation and do quick dump off passes to Rb's in the flat. If the other team picks up on that, then I hit my Te's over the middle. After that I go deep or use a screen play with Percy.
I havent used LSU a whole lot, they dont have very good QB's thanks to that idiot leaving, but they have a bunch of good RB's and pretty damn good Dline

BamaFalcon59
08-10-2008, 08:12 PM
I'm level 8 and my record is like 56-43 or something of that nature. Like you, I hate when people quit. I think I have a losing record against the comuter when people quit, maybe I get to confident. I know one game I could have knelt the ball and won, but threw it deep with like 30 seconds left and got picked off. Then I supersimmed, I have no idea why, and the comuter got to like my 40 down by six. Then, the next play on the supersim says 'penalty on the defense for 0 yards'. It had them on my one yard line, I'm guessing that is a glitch. They scored, I lost.

BamaFalcon59
08-10-2008, 08:40 PM
I got to say, LSU has some weapons if the QB can get it to them. Keiland Williams is a beast, Holliday is fast, Byrd and the other WR are good too. I believe they have a top TE also.

I used them on the PS2 in NCAA '08. I was pretty lethal with Perriloux and Holliday. If I was in a running mood it was basically...

4 yard run J. Hester
3 yard run J. Hester
5 yard run J. Hester
4 yard run J. Hester
3 yard run J. Hester
3 yard run J. Hester
7 yard run J. Hester
51 yard run TD T. Holliday

I just finished recruiting with auburn and got three 4 star recruits. Im pretty pumped. Im gonna play my game later tonight

Lucky you, despite VTs five star prestige rating they usually are only decent recruiters in this game.

Lucky for me, I think I'm going to pull the top tailback in the nation this year, along with a top 3 QB, maybe another top ten QB, a ton of top CBs, and in general a great class.

The other WR is Brandon Lafell and the elite TE is Richard Dickson. Dickson is soo underrated in this game its ********. In my other online dynasty I returned 3 punts for TDs back with Holliday, it was glorious.

Speaking of, playing Hawaii with UF and Harvin already has a PR TD and KR TD. Beastly. Not as fast as Holliday but close.

08-10-2008, 08:53 PM
Lucky you. Macho Harris is a beast. Outside of him and Kam Chancellor there aren't many playmakers on the team. Although I am pretty beasty with Greg Boone (12 catches, 140 yards, 3TD in game one, or something like that; he will tear it up this season in real life as well, total mismatch no matter where he lines up, he's 6'3" 280 with the ability to line up at FB, TE, WR, he has speed, shiftiness, impossible to tackle).

Makes me mad how great our OL is going to be this year and how bad it is in the game. And Darren Evans is very underrated. Ryan Williams has good accel and agility, but 88 speed is so underrated.

Yeah, if I used LSU I would pound it inside and outside with Keiland Williams while moving Holliday all over the field (start him at tailback and then it is possible to move him to WR, slot WR, etc. and still give Keiland the most carries), then bomb it deep to Lafell and Byrd, and Holliday.

Anyone here think they are the snuff?

Personally I think I'm pretty good, but I struggle against players level 10 and up. For a while I used USC, but decided that playing UF every game wasn't too fun (although I did pretty well against them, they are so predictable). So after going from no ranked teams to no top ten teams (everyone used number 11 Clemson haha) I now do teams 85 overall and under and use Virginia Tech., who have a solid defense but the offensive line is so underrated as well as the runningbacks. It irritates me.

Anyways, I'm ready to win championships.
I'm decent. My online record is 9-18, but could easily be 18-9. I got screwed over one day when my internet was constantly messing up and got disconnected on 3 games I was winning in. Another 2 games I was experimenting with different teams and could have won if I weren't trying to do different things.

What has helped me though is doing an offline dynasty with Northwestern on heisman mode. It is pretty tough when I face decent opponents, and extremely difficult vs. teams like Ohio St. They are just so much faster then NU, it's ridiculous.

My biggest problem however is defense. But I think all the practicing I have done has helped me out. On offense, I'm pretty rock solid. Neko4 would have never gotten that pick 6 off of me if I wasn't eating at the time and rushed to get the play off before the play clock ran out.

Well, I am working on getting me some 5 star oline recruits, but it's tough as most of them don't have a ton of interest in OU. I did however get the no. 2 receiver and one of the top OLB, both 5 star recruits, to commit however. So I am pumped about that. That's the thing I love about being a school like OU, the prospects come a-flocking.

I got a few losses like those. Off the top of my head, I have lost to the computer after someone quit three times, lost with Mississippi State to Ohio State, and disconnected once or twice due to lightening. Oh well.

As far as defense, that is probably my strength. I am pretty beasty when using Southern Cal's defense, but don't like playing with or against top 25 teams anymore. I'm pretty solid with VTs defense as well.

Anyone know how to get the highlights online if you saved them? I have an amazing pick return at the end of the game with Macho Harris, sucks that because I run around for like a minute it doesn't show the end where he jukes the QB and breaks two more tackles before hitting the end zone.

Just finished my game with Auburn against UL Monroe. Won 43-3. Kodi Burnes threw for around 350 with 4 TDs but he had 3 picks but 2 were off deflections.
My weakness is definitely my defense though. Im pretty much unstoppable throwing the ball unless im throwing picks

BamaFalcon59
08-10-2008, 11:29 PM
I definitely throw too many picks against the computer. Generally I'm solid in that remark, but against freaking ECU I threw 5 picks (although one should have been a TD catch by Greg Boone, which he dropped and that became an interception).

I can run, but it all depends on what mood I am in and what team I am. With USC I run and throw short passes. Michigan I run with in one of my dynasties. Tech. I run with sometimes, but last game I spent most of trying to get Tyrod's stats back up after a three interception first quarter.

I will run more once Ryan Williams is done with his redshirt and my offensive line improves.

Sorry I was cycling through some playbooks until I found one I liked. I should've done it offline I guess. If you can void it I would prefer to play it again to keep everything legit. Now that I know it keeps track of restarts I say the rule should be 0 a season.

Also I mixed things up in recuiting and thought I could offer scholorships after all the calls were done. So I have a bunch of pleased recruits that will hopefully wait around until next weeks offer.

And I'd be up for advancing every 2 days or so.

Ok, recruiting first. I forgot I did not fill up my recruiting board, so I have 1 hour 20 minutes unused. Felt like a noob.

Had the top RB visit me this week, considering everyone else is trying to get him.

Played Mizzou, who has a sick 97 rated offense, 93 rated defense. They score the first drive on me, so I supersim defense the next drive, which stops them, but the next time I supersim Maclin gets three straight catches over 20 yards. So I stopped supersimming. But damn do they tear up the passing game.

I went down there on my first drive, threw a pick on like the 20. Was angry, could have ran it in with Tyrod. I had, once again, absolutely no running game from my backs. That may have to change, I may have to put another player in. Can't wait to have Ryan Williams next year.

Next drive I take it down to the one yard line with like 20 seconds left. Instead of quarterback sneaking it I passed for stats, and got sacked. So I passed on third down, looks like a catch but I guess it hit the ground so after the review they reverse it. So it is fourth and goal from the ten yard line before half, so I kick it. Down 7-3 at half.

Get the ball coming out, go down there once again, and once again get intercepted. Boo.

They score with three straight 20 plus yard catches from Maclin.

I'm down 11, and get my 'fake o' on. Just sprint outs to the wide side of the field to the RB or tight end, open most plays. FYI Jahre Cheeseman, my RB, finished with almost 20 receptions lol. I get down there, and instead of passing it in this time I run it in. 14-7 Mizzou.

So then the next drive I manage to get the ball back somehow. I do the same offense, same result. 17-14 Tech..

So they get the ball. And as usual disect my pass defense like crazy, get down to my seven yard line I think. Chase Daniel drops back, looks, run up the middle. ****! Jason Worilds is injured. But it is Steven Friday to the rescue!!! Tackles Daniel on the one. They pass the next play, Brent Warren my MLB picks it off in the end zone! Yay!

I got the ball on the 20, get a nice pass, then get picked. Boo. They have the ball on like my 20. I feel a loss coming.

So once again they drive it down to like my five, effortlessly. Disection of my pass defense. Chase Daniel drops back, looks under the zone, wide open man, TD Mizz...but Dorian Porch hops the route, picks it off at the three zoom past Chase Daniel, races down the field, Jeremy Maclins coming but hell no he will not catch him, Porch breaks Maclin's feable attempt at a tackle on the one yard line and stumbles in. TD Tech!!! 24-14 Tech.

With like a minute to go. I kick it, get the ball back because Kam Chancellor just has a thing for getting the ball, this time on dumble recoveries. I make my way down field, with one second left run it in with Tyrod Taylor from the one yard line.

So I won 31-14. But damn that game was close till the end. With like a minute and half left Dorian Porch became a legend. Woot.

Dlionall and Hands, I threw out the results of your games and simmed them.

Just to clearify this to all, the only way you can restart a game is if for some reason you loose power or something. And I will not allow anyone to restart their game more then once.

I just play at a small d3 school called st vincent. I have a decent chance of playing as a freshman at guard, but who knows we'll see.

Not very good, but footballs not really my main concern. I just do it cause i know i'd miss it too much and it keeps me in shape. I chose the school mainly cause it has good academics. Football was just an added bonus
