I don’t know about you, Loyal Readers, but I’m ridiculously starved for college football. Generally, around this time, we used to be blessed with the presence of EA Sports’ NCAA series until legal issues with player likenesses nuked the series (related: please pay athletes royalties and bring it back, kthx).
However, a small group of fine folks over at Operation Sports, keep the series alive by updating the roster every year. Considering our new presence on Twitch, I pitched an idea to Shane that we should sim the season and be the commentary for each game. Below is the first run of this as virtual Notre Dame takes on virtual hated Michigan.
We are hoping to squeeze all the games in before the season kicks off. This was too much fun not to continue.
Video version via Twitch:
And, if you’re interested, the box score (I will try to grab more stats next time):
