I know many NCAA FOOTBALL 14 fans lie in depths of this blog, and i figured many of you would appreciate a mini series, if this goes over well i will continue to participate in creating this.
Season one was filled with it's ups and downs. Michigan finshed it's regular season at 10-2, with wins over Michigan State (44-14) and Ohio State in Columbus (27-20). Michigan dropped the opener vs UNC (34-28) and unfortunately, at High Point Solution Stadium versus Rutgers (41-21),
Michigan represented the B1G East in the B1G Title game, and defeated Wisconsin by the score of 20-7. Michigan earned a bid to the Rose Bowl, where they defeated UCLA 31-14.
Michigan was well represented on the All American (9) and All Conference (14) teams. Chris Evans won the Heisman Trophy in a landslide. Evans carried the ball 297 times for 1621 yards, and punched in 14 TD's. Rashan Gary also had a humongous season. Gary tallied 41 tackles, 28 TFL and 19 sacks, earning himself the Lombardi award in his true sophomore season.
Your 2013 national champion was the Houston Cougars, who defeated Alabama by the score of 28-21.
The Off-season was relatively quiet. Michigan lost two players to transfer, Kareem Walker transferred to Pittsburgh for playing time, and Nico Collins trasnferred to the University of South Alabama due to home sickness. The Wolverines signed the 17th overall recruiting class containing 12 commits, incuding three five stars, four four stars, and five three stars NJ ATH Andre Moore, the number one overall player in the class, signed with Michigan.
During the Off-season Houston joined the Big 12, which was an evident move, considering the easy road they traveled playing in the American Conference. BYU filled their spot in the American, leaving the Independents.
Michigan starts the 2014 season ranked 4th overall, and has renewed the rivalry with ND. I predict another 10-2 season with loses to OSU, and ND. I will report back in a few days with the results. Any questions regarding the season leave below, and ill do my best to give you that answer.
I fixed up the Michigan roster if anyone wants to give them a look "michiganman24" ..and before you nitpick about some guys wearing nike gloves (some of our guys wear gloves that look more like the nike ones than the adidas) and Beyer is at SAM now (In my mind Jake Ryan is not injured)
I almost put a sad face after the Jake Ryan sentence but those are whack so i didnt..anyway enjoy if you would like.
Well, it's that time of year folks. Tomorrow, July 9th, is when NCAA Football 14 is released, and I was looking to start up an Big Ten Online Dynasty.
Now I'd like to be Michigan, but if everyone would just like them to be a CPU I'm fine with that. If no one is UM, I will take Rutgers.
Yes, Rutgers and Maryland will be added. I would be open to adding ND but since they're matchup with UM is ending, either way is fine with me.
If we were to add those three teams, I am not sure if you must have an even number of teams for a Conference Championship Game or even if you can have 16 teams. I will be getting the game right away tomorrow so I will look into that.
We will probably start on everything All-American until we get a feel for how this year's game plays.
I would like for everyone to be getting the game this week if not sooner so we can start ASAP, BUT we will wait for the named rosters and none of the ratings will be changed. Hopefully those rosters will be out by the weekend or beforehand.
So it will be first come first serve. List your gamertag, team you want, and email.

Also for those interested about the ratings of Michigan's players in the game, you should be able to open up the depth chart and browse around for any specific players (or all of them).
Please keep voting for Michigan and Denard to make it on the cover of NCAA Football 14, Ed O'Bannon's lawsuit be damned!
We're only ~3,000 votes behind, and we're catching up.
There's no reason not to do this. Unless I suppose you hate America. Or don't have facebook.
Honestly, unless you want to see Eddie Lacy on the cover instead of Denard, go vote immediately.
BONUS: The facebook page cover photo. ND would have Manti Teo's fake girlfriend on the cover. No wonder they lost.
