West Virginia - Insane Stats - Help

In an online dynasty one of the other human controled teams is West Virginia, and on Heisman is having his HB and QB (both ~95 speed) he is amassing 350+ yards receing with just the HB. Any idea what he may be doing? There some trick play to get the HB wide open for huge gains that he could be using?

Looking for an idea before this ruins our whole dynasty.

Thanks

The CPU's poor pursuit angles (afraid to tackle players)
+
the speed handicap for the defense
+
the LB's in ability to cover RBs
+
the crazy speed of Noel D
=
350 receiving yds per game.

I don't know what he was doing, but I sure hope Pate White and Noel Devine can connect like in real life this season.

I know exactly what he's doing, because I'm in an online dynasty with another player playing with WVU, another with Clemson, another with Nebraska, and another with Michigan (plus a few others, but these are the main culprits). The run out of shotgun and run their receivers deep. Then they send their halfbacks (or in the case of Clemson and Michigan they have James Davis and Sam McGuffie playing FB) out into the flats. If the defense is playing man, the LBs can't possibly keep up, so they catch the ball by the sideline and are gone. If the defense is in zone and the LB has flats, same deal. If it's zone and the CB has flats, faulty AI keeps them from coming up and covering the RB in flats, so the RB just has to juke one guy and he's gone. WVU does it with Devine, Clemson with Davis and Spiller, Nebraska with Lucky, and Michigan with McGuffie. It's just one of the many "money" plays in the game this year if you have a fast HB.

False. Pittsburgh rocks.

The guy is just abusing a shotgun formation and having Devine either go on a fly route match up against a LB or he's throwing to him in the flats all game long.

It's the AWFUL computer defense.

I was racking up 1,000+yds receiving +12 TDs per game (With ONE receiver) against 1AA competition on Heisman.

It's just flat out BAD defense on the computers part.

It's not exploitative, it's that zone defenses are broken, man defenses are broken, pursuit angles don't work, and this leads to the ability to take it to the house against inferior teams on every single PLAY.
