Finally got our Week 1 in the books, and I've been pulling a lot of overtime. I haven't been able to figure out any way to get highlights or still shots off my 360, so we'll just be looking at the box score. First though we'll look at the other scores of Week 1. For convenience sake, I'm just leaving them in the order the game put them in.

Second Quarter:

6:56 TD OU: J. Hurts, 4 Yd Run (G. Brkic Kick)

4:38 TD Bama: M. Forristall, 12 Yd Pass from Tu. Tagovialoa (missed kick; AI Nick Saban had a CB at Kicker in a Bug/Glitch of some kind. Thankfully it wasn't meaningful to the outcome of the game. I've checked other depth charts in Team Management thankfully it seems to be a Glitch contained to just Bama. When this happened in game I was worried I'd have to scrap everything and start over.)

1:24 FG OU: G.Brkic, 19 Yd FG (was very frustrating settling here, but felt I needed the points at that stage.)

T.O.P. : Bama 9:26, OU 18:34

OU Passing:

Jalen Hurts RAT 111.3 6/11 122 2 INT 54% (both picks clearly my fault on the sticks, still somewhat rusty I suppose. Especially having to challenge a Bama D 1st.)

Bama Receiving:

H. Ruggs III 8 for 77 Yards, Long of 27, 24 YAC

J. Jeudy 8 for 96, Long of 17, 19 YAC (felt I was pretty effective using Football's Version of Basketball's 'Box And 1' Approach. I mostly played Cover 6 while Hot Routing the various CBs over Jeudy to Man Up on him. He actually seemed to prefer being straight up double teamed in Cover 1 or Cover 0. And he still nearly put up 100 on me, lol.)

M. Forristall 3 for 29, 1 TD, Long of 12, 21 YAC

So the Heisman Watch for Week 2 is still a glitched out mess. I don't remember having had this problem when I've started Dynasties with Community Rosters before. In any case, if it's actually screwed up at the end I'll declare the Maxwell Award Winner the Heisman as well, but hopefully and likely it'll fix itself after players start to accumulate more stats.

Overall Players of the Week:

UConn LOLB Dillon Harris 3 Tack, 2 TFL, Sack, Forced Fumble, and INT in 45-21 Win over FCS East.

Utah HB Zack Moss 28 Rush for 166 Yards, 3 TD, 6 Rec for 51 Yards. in 42-21 Win over Utah State.

SEC Players of the Week:

Tenn LOLB Darrell Taylor 3 Solo, 5 TFL, 6 ATK, 2 Sacks, Fumble Recovery in 34-7 Win over FCS East.

Mizzou HB Larry Rountree III 28 Rush for 209 Yards, 2 TD, 4 Rec for 48 Yards in 35-18 Win over FCS East.
