What is a good quarter length for a realistic stats?
I play 8 min quarters. Just read up on operation sports. They have some pretty in depth details about sliders and such. This will get you the most realistic gameplay and stats. You may decided to tweak their stuff a little, but if you play with it enough you will figure out what works for you.
I found some that work for me and I'm having a blast with it. Here is how a game normally plays out for me..
If I'm playing against a lesser opponent I usually rack up between 250-350 passing yards on around 25 attempts. Rushing I usually get 100-150 yards on 20 carries. Usually get a pick or two and 4-5 sacks on defense.
Against the top notch SEC schools my stats usually depend on if I have to rely heavily on the pass or not. Sometimes the teams have a very good rush defense (Bama and Florida) and I have to pass more. So I can sometimes get around 300 yards passing, but only rush for 60-80 yards on 20 or so carries. Now sometimes I will be playing a good team with a poor rush defense and I can pound it on them for 150, but my passing numbers are down. Defensivly I will get a sack or two and if I'm lucky pick one off.
I'm having a blast with it. In season 2 so far I played ULM first and blew them out. They put up 22 on me in the first half, but that was mainly due to my stupidity. They didn't stop me from scoring much though. I then played MSU and they kept it close for a half, but I ended up winning by 21.
In my first year I can sometimes put up a defensive gem against a really good team. I beat Florida 26-0 during the regular season, but struggled against them in the SEC Championship (only winning 12-10). I also had a really good, close game, against Bama and Texas A&M. I totally committed to stopping Manziel from beating me with his feet, but he torched me through the air. Now Texas in the NC was a different story. I couldn't stop those bastards. I'm still pissed about it.
