Re: have you ever played a game where you just were not allowed to win?

I have played a few of those types of games. In order to combat this: PULL YOUR STARTING QB and you totally change the momentum. I'm not sure if it's a glitch or not but I never lose when I pull the starting QB. The momentum switches immediately.

But for real, the last time it happened to me I think it was with my Tulsa dynasty a long time ago when I went into 4 OT's against UNT and lost..lol.

This happend to me while I was playing the CPU in an OD. I was Nebraska playing Western Michigan (wow lol) and I turned the ball over 8 times and only had 1 takeaway. Thats a turnover diffrential of -7. But anyways the final score of the game was 45-7 Western Michigan. It sucked really bad.

I dont think its a normal occurence, but I will agree that it does happen every so often. Most of the time it happens in the last quarter, its often gotten so bad that I try to make sure that I'm losing before going into the 4th to keep the A.I calm, then I'll try to strike when they dont have enough time to come back, lol.

I don't believe in scripted outcomes. As bad as the outcome looks, I'm sure there were times where you played the cpu and picked them off a ton of times or they had a bunch of fumbles. Stuff happens - just like Tennesse this weekend like the other poster said.

I was beating Tennessee by 24 points in the 3rd Qtr in NCAA 07 (360) and my team (NC State) decided to simply stop playing football. I think they thought it was badminton.

Lost 45-42

Every big play, I get called for holding. The AI breaks 9 tackles on 3rd down to make sure they get the 1st. If I have the audacity to stop them, they just make me tackle with the face mask and give them the 1st anyway. Your QB suddenly throws high wobbly passes that are 10 yards off, or it hits the WR in the hands and just drops. My favorite is when the CPU QB throws a pass, and the ball just knuckles into their hands, or goes through one of my guys. I've got a handful of pictures and videos saved where the ball curves in mid-air, or goes through one of my players to make sure the AI gets it. They even call me for holding on FGs and such. Oh yeah, I've seen it. Happens once every other season or so where it's definitely pre-determined that you're going to lose and there's nothing you can do about it. Yet some people pretend the game is never scripted...it definitely is.
Maybe she was playing QB?
