TBS PS2 Mid-Season Review

Remember back a few months ago when you would sign on to <b>TotalBlueSports.com (TBS)</b> and you were directed to a front page and a message board and mail and all sorts of nifty features. It was great. Wait a minute. TBS still features all of that and then some.

Not only are there more features and story content options available to TBS subscribers than before, but we are fortunate to have access to the nation's best and largest recruiting source – TheInsiders.com.

I should know. Prior to joining TBS, I used to write for the CougarIllustrated.com on the Rivals.com national recruiting network when it was still producing articles.

I started an article series on the old TBS site with a PlayStation 2 computer-to-computer simulation of BYU's 2003 season. For personal reasons related to an injury and preparation for my LDS mission, I did not finish the series. Look for the BYU-Colorado State preview shortly.

My previous articles used the EA Sports NCAA Football 2003 software to run all of the game simulations and stats. The remaining games I will preview will use the 2004 version with improved game play and updated rosters. In the 2003 version, BYU was 5-1 with their only loss to Stanford. With the 2004 game and updated rosters, the results are a little different.

We have simulated the season over again to the same spot (week 7) as we did in the previous simulation. Here are some relevant stats:
