    I can play tonight after 11:30 central time mad, or the same time tomorrow, or at 1:30 p.m. central or before tomorrow. That's pretty much the same for any day through Saturday.

    Right on. I'm staying in tonight and sure to be on Live after some Olympic coverage.

    Cool. I'll probably want a few minutes to practice, but I can play.

    Be advancing here soon.

    Oh and Michigan beat Alabama, 28-3.

    Really strange game though. Bama's QB was passing really well in the first half, ended up getting three points on its first drive.

    After I took a 7-3 and then 14-3 lead, Bama started running option plays, which was basically the QB keeping the ball because he wasn't able to pitch it.

    I'm sure if I had actually played Hustle, the score would have been drastically different.

    Mad, I'm back early and ready to play whenever.

    The option? Seriously? That QB is slow as balls, but he's a better passer than the would-be starter, who can run.

    Oh well. We had a good run. Roll Tide.

    Yea, it was really weird. I think the first 6-7 plays were all passes and all complete. They also ran a lot of 4WR and 5WR looks.

    I forget exactly how I adjusted. Think I went to a nickel cover 3 press, or nickel double out at times too.

    The QB (Fanuzzi I think the name was) definitely had the most rushing attempts, about 15. WR 88 had a couple runs and the HB had about eight carries.

    The OL did a pretty good job too. I think I only had one sack (and that was more of a coverage sack).

    Yeah, that OL has always been pretty beastly. They slapped you around the last time we played. :D

    Did Ingram play? He was hurt halfway through the season and was out a while, but I can't remember if he was on track to return for the bowl game. If he didn't, I could see why they looked elsewhere... the backup was OK, but it seemed like Ingram got through the hole quicker and broke more tackles.

    You are right, Fanuzzi is the QB and 88 is my No. 1 WR, IIRC, even though he plays in the slot. He also gets the handoff on all of the WR sweeps.

    Oh well, congrats on the win!
