Thread: Smooth Pancakes' Navy Midshipmen Dynasty

  1. #41
    YES! FIRST OPPONENT UNDER 100! That should be a trophy or something from EA! Looks like this is going to take a while to get a win but I will continue to check it out.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate it. I may be getting my ass kicked, but it's actually the most fun I've had in a while. Looking at the schedule, I still don't really see anyone I can actually win against with this team (maybe I could get lucky against Army with my craptastic Navy team), but after I get past Houston here, I shouldn't have to worry as much about having 100 points dropped on me in a game. Houston could do it pretty easily with their passing game, but the rest I should at least be able to hold to 90 points or less.

    Next season is where the fun is really going to begin, especially with the way my recruiting class is beginning to take shape.

    Houston Rolls All Over Navy

    600+ yards in passing for Cougars

    Annapolis, Md. – Another loss, another 100 point loss, another ass kicking, etc, etc, etc. Instead of doing a big giant write-up, I’m just gonna let the pictures doing the talking as I’d be pretty much essentially repeating myself from the past three games.




    Devin Mayes takes the opening kickoff 88 yards for a touchdown.




    Devin Mayes and Matt Nicholson celebrate after an 88 yard kickoff return on the opening kickoff.




    Caleb Lucas is tackled by James Cleveland during a 14 yard punt return.




    Kevin Edwards is swarmed by Houston defenders during a 14 yard punt return.




    Tyron Carrier takes back a punt return for 17 yards while Navy defenders trying to tackle him.




    Aaron Santiago catches a pass before being tackled by George Bamfo for a 4 yard loss.

    Navy Recruiting Update

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. – For one of the first weeks of the season, a recruit has not committed to Navy. However, the Midshipmen made large gains on their opposing teams for all recruits as well has had 10 of the remaining 17 recruits announce that they are ready to make official visits to Navy. The Midshipmen may not be doing pretty on the field, but off the field, this recruiting class is shaping up to be a great haul.

    Lol, yeah, that's one thing I LOVE about Navy. They have GREAT pipeline states!

    And this dynasty is on hold right now. I was really hoping to have done an update last Wednesday or Thursday, unfortunately, I've been sick as all hell since last Sunday night, and still am sick right now a week later. Haven't even tried to touch my Xbox since Tuesday night, and this is my first time on my laptop since Wednesday evening. Even had to have someone fill in for my morning show on Saturday morning because I wasn't about to put myself through trying to drive for 30 minutes, at 65-70 MPH down US 24, at 3:30 in the morning, while I was feeling as horrible as I was during the week. And since my head is still hurting like a bitch, I'm not even gonna try to do anything on the Xbox for at least a couple more days. So maybe later this week I could get a game up. Otherwise it'll be next weekend or next week sometime.

    So I've been thinking. While I've been laying here sick for the past week doing pretty much nothing but sleeping and watching TV now and then, I think I'm gonna change my scheduling rules. I'm still going to leave them intact for the most part so that I have some tough as hell schedules, but I want the ability to schedule series without completely breaking my own rules. With Navy in the past month announcing future games with Penn State, South Carolina, and just last week Southern Miss, I want to do some home and homes with opponents, instead of playing Houston this year and then maybe play them again randomly 7 years down the road.

    So I'm going to add a rule to my scheduling recruitments allowing me to schedule series with teams, so I could play against Houston this season and then at Houston next season or two seasons from now or something. Basically have "contractually obligated" games with opponents that I need to fulfill instead of just playing random teams here and there and never play them again for a decade. Maybe in the process of it all I can have some teams sort of grow as "mini-rivals" where playing them every 2 or 3 years, you know you're always going to get a good game, maybe even some controversy, a la this year's Stanford game, instead of playing them every single year where it feels like it's trying to be forced as a rivalry or something.

    I'm going to toss it around in my head some and think of how to incorporate it into the dynasty and other scheduling rules I already have and make it work.

    Rutgers Leaves Navy in Flames

    Scarlet Knights gains almost 1,000 total yards

    New Brunswick, NJ – This game almost started off bad for Navy. The Midshipmen have a history of giving up touchdowns off of opening kickoffs, and this game appeared to be no exception. However, a holding penalty on the fullback ultimately doomed an 84 yard kickoff return, forcing Rutgers to start the game from their own 24 yard line.

    That would be the only victory for Navy, as the first play from scrimmage saw Joe Martinek take it 76 yards to the house on the ground. Unfortunately after that, there was seemingly nothing Navy could do right. Rutgers proceeded to have a field day against Navy, racking up 76 points in the first half of play.




    Joe Martinek breaks loose from Emmitt Merchant and Jerry Hauburger on his way to a 76 yard touchdown run.


    After dropping 76 points in the 1st half, Rutgers was thinking about nothing but besting Texas and putting up 137 points or more. Unfortunately for Rutgers, their 3rd string offense was unable to do much, even against the overmatched Midshipmen defense, managing only a mere 17 points in the 4th quarter and 37 points total in the entire 2nd half.

    For Navy, it was another triple digit loss in a season that has already seen many, and will most likely continue to see more.




    Kordell Young takes a rush around the right end and turns it up field for a 62 yard touchdown.




    It was a rough day for Navy’s special teams. On this early 1st quarter kick return, Caleb Lucas only manages 13 yards before being overrun by 10 Rutgers players. The only Rutgers player not involved in the mass tackle was the kicker.




    Left defensive end Sorie Bayoh gets pressure on Ricky Dobbs, forcing an incomplete pass during 3rd quarter action.




    As has been becoming a regular sight for Navy fans, Ricky Dobbs gets overwhelmed by the defense, resulting in a sack and a 7 yard loss, courtesy of left defensive end Jonathan Freeny, one of 8 sacks by the Rutgers defense.
