During this wild Wazzu/Ducks game, I played as CU '90 vs OU '71 in a solo possession game.  As I suspected, OU doesn't throw as much (as I would if calling their plays).   I bet OU passed the ball 9 times.  I'd probably throw 15 or more.  CU really has a nice D key against the short pass which can negate OU's outsized play opportunities against the pass.

'90 CU  16   0   6   0    22
'71 OU   7   7   14  3    31

CU missed two PATs, OU missed two Field Goals (55, 44).  Hagan threw two 4th quarter INTs, OU had a KR TD.   Only 6 penalties.  Whoa Nellie cards were all no fumble/no TD results.

Ok, I played one more N '95 v OU '71 game before I order more teams.   I played solo as OU, and called a lot of short passes for OU.  Mildren threw 5  (FIVE!) INTs, the final one being returned by Mike Fulman for a TD.

Penalties only thing that really slowed Nebraska, and forced them to punt twice.

OU   3   0   7   7   17
N     7  14  14 10  45

OU:  INT, Fumble, FG, INT, INT, TD, INT, TD, INT, Downs  (No punts, six turnovers)
N: TD, Fumble, Punt, TD, TD, TD, TD, Punt, FG, TD pick six, End Game.

Your post made me look at the 71 OU team card again, and there's an error.  Nothing to do with gameplay, but their 35/65 pass/run% are actually 71 Nebraska's..........ugh.

I hope you weren't trying to pass a third of the time because of that.  Those Sooners actually only passed 9% of the time.

in my play as OU '71 I've messed around a bit, one game, doing nothing but passing, and another (when I threw 5 INTs!) I passed a lot.   Stunning how many times I rolled high 90s, or got caught against a good defense which increased INT odds.  

Their card doesn't seem right on the run side, especially for a team that ran for 472 yards p game.

Well, they averaged 6.6 yards per carry, which is the number the game is based on.  And remember, it's just their top 4 rushers, so those guys down the stat sheet who averaged 14 yards per carry on 4-5 carries aren't included.  You've got:
Mildren with the most carries, at 5.8 per
Pruitt at 9.0 ypc
the FB Crosswhite at 4.9, and
Bell with 7.2



The reason they ran for 470 ypg is that they always ran the ball.  91% of their plays were runs.  Now, on the 'opponent offense' chart, the lowest I can get the passing plays is 16%.  (1 out of 12 is about 8% - so just allowing for one slot each for short pass and long pass, that's 8% x 2 = 16%.  So that inflates their passing rates a little, but playing as 71 OU, you should rarely pass, if ever.



I did consider allotting just one slot for passing (8% of plays) to be more precise, and I know those run-first, run always teams threw deep a lot, but still - I don't think anyone would want to be made to only throw it deep, especially with such paltry completion percentages in doing so.  
I could possibly make the QB card for all teams who threw the ball below, say 12%, different/unique compared to all others in the game, with a mix of short and long passes....but I'd have to wait to look at that until after I catch up on orders.
