WOW

How do you play?  Do you play-call for one team or neither?  

That Arizona offense was crap.  The year before, they lost games 7-6 and 8-7.  That had to be a grind-it-out game.  Thanks for sharing!

I typically play one player, have never played neither.  I played as OU '85.  I'm always playing above board (cheating yourself otherwise).  I think I've told you some time ago, the only house rule I play is calling penalties on 1 and 20 only on the d20.  AZ had bad dice rolls passing and couldn't run for squat.  I did use the blowout card in the 4th.

Those 85-87 OU defenses were great.

Would you want to try out a variant Whoa Nellie card for me?

Miami 2001 v Penn State 1994.    One player (I played as Miami, possession game)

Canes  14  7  3  0    24
PSU    0    13  3  6    22

Canes TD 6yd pass A. Johnson
Canes TD 1yd QB Sneak Dorsey
Canes TD 10 yd run Portis
PSU    TD 12 yd pass B. Engram,  PAT no good
PSU    TD  6 yd run Whittman
Canes FG  52 yards Sievers
PSU    FG  53 yards Conway
PSU    TD  82 yard PR B. Engram,  2pt conversion no good

Pretty amazing final three quarters, following Miami's ferocious start.  Sacks and stuffing Carter on 3rd down force 3 PSU punts.  Canes scored on three out of the four first possessions.  Conway doinks a PAT with a  d98 following a 80 yd drive.  Dorsey throws a pick and PSU scores a short Whoa Nellie TD to end the half.  Miami's lone score in the second half a bomb FG by Sievers, and PSU comes back with a drive but a missed a 47 yard FG.  Conway redeems himself after a Whoa Nellie McGhee fumble.  Dorsey throws another pick, but the Canes sack Collins on 3rd and 11 and Penn St is forced to punt, but pins the Canes deep midway 4th.  Miami pushes the ball to the 40 but the drive stalls.  Then Engram returns a punt in PSU's final possession 82 yards for a dramatic touchdown.  Incredibly, Penn St gets flagged for delay of game on the two point conversion attempt!  Now at the 8 yard line,  I call the right defense for the Canes and Collins short pass falls incomplete.  Canes win.  Brilliant game pace.

1984 Oklahoma State 45
2008 Oklahoma State 53
3 Overtimes
On a 4th down and goal to go on the 3 yard line, the regular play selection called for a short pass from Quarterback Rusty Hilger to Tailback Thurman Thomas for 3 yards and a touchdown. Assuming a successful 2 point conversion, the game would be sent into a 4th overtime. However, I was using the newly downloaded "Offensive Yardage Variety Chart" which, with a dice roll of "3" indicated a "-1." In other words, the pass completion on 4th down and 3 yards to go was for only 2 yards, not 3, and the game was over. Thurman Thomas was tackled on 4th down on the one yard line. Great addition the the game!
