Ncaa Epic Game

So I just completed a really enjoyable game online. I was Illinois @ Michigan and the guy I was playing against took a pretty quick 14-0 lead in the first half. I couldn't get much going on offense as my passing attack was horrible (I couldn't scramble either because for some reason they made Scheelhaase slow in this game. I guess his ~900 rushing yards last year were gained by jogging). I ended up kicking a FG sometime before the end of the first half making it a 14-3 game. The second half was all Illinois, my defense was on crack I guess. I knocked Robinson out of the game and ended up recording 9 sacks. I also picked one of his passes off. I ended up scoring 2 TDs (both passing) and recorded a safety making the score 19-14. He got the ball back with 2 time outs and time for a final drive. I stopped him dead his first 3 plays making it a 4th and long. His next play he completed a bomb to one of his WRs down to my ~30 yard line. I panicked a little but ended up stopping him on a 4th down play with one second left. Scheelhaase took the knee and the game was over! Really exciting game and the best part about it was there wasn't any lag (the guy I was playing lives in the States)!!

Thanks for the recap Lat. Congrats! Its nice to know good random games can still be found.

I guess in Korea you guys get 5 plays to make a first down cause you said after stopping him dead for 3 plays it was 3rd and long. LOL

Ha, nice catch! Yea it was funny because I was just screwing around in the menus and on accident clicked the play now or whatever in the Xbox Live menu and it paired me up with that guy. Was funny that it was another Big 10 team. And it was even sweeter that it was Michigan because any time Illinois can beat them it is a good day for me

I just had a great game as well with Illinois. It was in my first year of my Illinois dynasty. Ohio State came to town undefeated for a show-down of 2 unbeaten teams. As my Fighting Illini were 5-0 at the time of the game. Was a defensive battle until the end of the 3rd. In the 4th both team's offenses finally came alive. I drove down the field to take a 21-14 lead with just :28 seconds left on this play:


But of course I left OSU way too much time to tie the game with just :15 seconds left. On the last possession of the game I threw up a hail mary praying for no overtime and I got my wish. Here is the final play of this game:


Illinois wins 28-21.

Damn, looks like a tight game. I like how Illinois plays in this game. I also like that Ford is a beast. My only gripe is how slow they made Scheelhaase.
