Share your game results here - it'll be a fun place to see how other's games are going and perhaps identify trends.  And it's just nice to share what happened.

95 Northwestern vs
72 USC


Obviously, USC was favored here.
Darnell Autry never got on track, as he was stifled for about 2 yards per carry.  Both teams missed a FG and neither team passed the ball all that well.  N'Western passed 32 times to USC's 19 because they were behind early and they just couldn't move the ball on the ground.  D'Wayne Bates had almost 100 yards for the Wildcats, but the USC running game was too much.  Anthony Davis and Sam Cunningham didn't have huge days, but kept the chains moving.

72 USC wins, 24-13.

'95 Nebraska 45  '71 OU 13.     It was 42-7 at half, offense was unstoppable for Nebraska in first half, and had a pick six. I put a game play summary on the customer review page.   Thank you OAM for sending out the 'blowout chart' so I can adjust play call probabilities for solo play, to better reflect what would happen in a blowout.

'91 Miami 14 '90 Colorado 10.    
in between these early games today, my Dad and I were playing ('91 Miami at '90 Colorado).   Miami, hilariously, was hit with 2 unsportsmanlike penalties during the game, among other penalties.  This game is realistic.     :57: title=57

Anyways, another punt was blocked (Nebraska blocked an OU punt in the first game I played too), this time, the difference, as Colorado was punting in the 4th, up 10-7,  Miami blocks it and returns it for a TD,  Canes win it 14-10.    We had about 9 penalties in this game, and my first Whoa Nellie big play TD, Colorado's only TD, a 25 yard TD run.   Colorado also missed two field goals, and led 3-0 at half.   CU had a couple sacks of Miami.   I think Hagan was 1-6 throwing.


I haven't played with clock play yet, just possession count (but have played out all possessions, not the quick play chart).

Wow, 71 OU has the best offense in the game, I believe.

I was quite surprised by their offensive performance, they got behind the sticks, and the Nebraska D adjustments really forced them into 4th and medium, I'd probably have them go for it more often if in that similar situation.  Mildren is such feast or famine when OU has to pass.

Yes, I haven't done it recently, but I want to take an old option team and just throw the ball a ton.  I'd predict a ton of punts, passing yards, and interceptions.

'95 Nebraska 44
'90 Colorado 7

I had a first, the opening kickoff was a d99 and returned for a touchdown for Nebraska.  CU immediately drove down for a tying touchdown. Nebraska answered in the air on the next drive, but Kris Brown missed the PAT.   Nebraska built up a 30-7 1st half lead.  Not surprisingly, CU's punter buried Nebraska a couple times (reversing my earlier trend of low net punt averages in my first couple games).

Colorado actually moved the ball fairly well on the ground in the 1st half, but Hagan could not make a play to save his life (especially passing), or him getting stuffed on the run.  FG attempts weren't going to keep CU in this game.  The blowout chart was used, but not until the 4th, as Nebraska was only up 23 in the 3rd.    Hagan was sacked 4 times in the 4th quarter.  I had more production sticking to the run, but again, this is realistic.  An option team has a brutal time trying to come back from big deficits.

We had a Whoa Nellie TD on a Mackovicka  49 yard FB Trap which basically sealed the game.  I think my Dad ran inside run for Nebraska every play of the second half.  Had we played clock time, I think one drive would've been a 18 play, 97 yard, 14 minute drive.  He was 2-2 on 4th and short conversions.

There were 12 penalties in the game, 3 turnovers,  I rolled the d20  about 80% of the time.    Conversely Frazier passed the ball quite well in the first half, throwing 3 TD passes.

Hagan's sacks were unexpected since, if my memory serves me correctly, he had three All-Americans (Van Der Poel, Garten, & Leuwenberg) on his offensive line that year.  Then again, they run-blocked 99% of the time.  Thanks

It was all the dice roll.  N 95 triggers a sack on low rolls, and when CU was in blowout mode, ears back for Nebraska keying SP/LP. You basically need a d11 to d32 to hit a LP w Hagen in that situation.  I'm guessing Kordell would be a better QB for CU in 94, 95.

I probably ran for 200+ yds w CU.  Lots of 20+ runs, both IR/OR.  Nebraska run keys over time though really make it hard to move the sticks.  2 whoa nellie fumbles too.  My Dad had all the dice juju. They are as good as advertised.

'71 Oklahoma   7   14  14  7   42
'91 Miami         0    3    7   0   10

I played Possession mode (solo).  As OU '71.  I intentionally threw SP the majority of the offensive plays. 
One thing with Possession mode solo, the Defensive d9 roll is at a disadvantage, as several plays, the Canes were not figuring out that OU was throwing on nearly every down.  Combine that with hot dice, and this team is unstoppable offensively.   I think if I play this way again, I may modify my defensive rolls for the Opponent, if offense play calls are 3X.   On one hand the dice were good for OU, often, and they just moved up and down the field for the most part.  Even with a -8 Pass for Miami.   Lots of penalties in this one too, though several were declined.

OU:      P, TD, MFG :   TD, TD : TD, TD : INT, P, TD
Canes: INT, Downs:  P, P, FG:   TD, Fumble, INT: Downs, Downs.

Despite the passing load by Jack Mildren, the player of the game was FB Leon Crosswhite, who scored 4 TDs, three of which were Whoa Nellie TD runs of 22yds, 15 yrs, and 99!   Miami pins OU at the one, and then The Canes had the same D 3Xs in a row, which led to the 3rd quarter Whoa Nellie game buster.

Canes lone TD was a Whoa Nellie 66 yard pass TD to Kevin Williams.   Toretta was good on the short balls, but two picks were drive killers, as the Canes definitely moved the ball in this game.

One negative of all this is that I haven't been able to sit and play the game any - just filling orders.  So keep the updates coming!  :)

 three of which were Whoa Nellie TD runs of 22yds, 15 yrs, and 99!  Miami pins OU at the one, and then The Canes had the same D 3Xs in a row, which led to the 3rd quarter Whoa Nellie game buster.

In 2-player, the Miami team would play the Whoa Nellie card twice per half vs 71 OU, as they were an option team.  How is the 3x same defense working out playing solo?  I know the % chance works out, but in reality, how have you found it to bear out?


Sounds like penalties might have to be peeled back.  Thanks for your invaluable sharing!

                       1     2    3    4    F
'95 Nebraska    21   7    9    10   47
'91 Miami         0     7    10   7    24

I played as Miami solo in a Possession play game.  I still haven't played Clock-Time game.   Nebraska probably passed 7 times, Frazier threw one TD pass to Ahman Green on a 7 yard swing pass.  I returned a KR for a TD for the Canes.  Interestingly, this crappy KR for the Canes kept me from 2 other KOR TDs with d100 rolls in the mid 90s, not quite enough.   Nebraska did most of their damage running inside, I don't think they ran OR more than 4 times.  Mackovicka and Phillips ran all over me.  Green and Frazier scored twice each on the ground.  3 total Whoa Nellie TDs, two by Nebraska, and one for me and Gino, but I didn't need it, the d roll would have been a TD anyways for Copeland.   

I was safetied on a sack, one of Nebraska's 3 sacks of Torretta.  Another sack ruined a drive, and Huerta missed a 35 yd fg.  I decided to pull back penalties to just '1' and '20' in the 2nd half, as I did have 'too many' flags in the first half, fairly evenly distributed.    The blowout chart came out again, and I did try an onside in the 2nd half with the score 28-17, and did not recover it.

I noticed there isn't a blocked FG roll, though I supposed that's 'covered' on d rolls considering a miss, though that does keep a blocked FG return from happening.  I admit, tough to implement, I suppose a '95-99' d100 roll?

After I play '71 OU vs '90 CU, I need to order some more cards.  :72:  Probably a 10 pack.
