TOP STORIES
1. BCS Ups & Downs
Whew what a season huh? UF beats UM and torches all in its wake only to lose ground against UGA, but this season has more storylines then members. So lets get right to the nitty gritty,

In ACC we have a battle brewing between #9 FSU & #2 VT both in action this week in monster that can shake-up BCS standings.

In Big East we have a partial hiccup that could land TCU as the conf. champions only should Rutgers lose vs Syracuse/WVU, can they get this prayer?

In Big Ten UM is the powerhouse, but they need to stay weary as a PSU loss will give them the Badgers in the B10 Title game . Oh and MSU's coach gets to keep his job.

In SEC UF/UGA are in the same conference and the Dogs hold the head2head in which makes all the BCS drama that much more personal.

So in my honest opinion this will be a season to remember especially if their are some late losses by any remaining Top 5 team.

MSF Madden 12 League News


Top Stories: Week 13

Playoff Scenario:

AFC's playoff situation is partially clear, but with clusters in the AFC South / AFC West below we will chat about the possible outlook on the current playoff table

1st Round Bye
#1 Oakland 10-1 their only lost came at the hands of JETS JETS JETS!!!!!
#2 Jaguars 9-2 their losses came at the hands of the pesky Texans/Saints

Wildcard Bound
#3 New York Jets 8-3 with losses vs Jaguars/Broncos/Cowboys they hold serve over the remaining PO spots / with a win and MIA loss NYJ will clinch AFC East and PO spot!!

#4 Pittsburgh 7-4 with losses vs Jaguars/Chiefs/Titans/Bengals the only reason they have a say in this post season mock is due to their divisional position. With a win this week and Ravens loss, the Steel Curtain will clinch PO spot/ AFC North.

#5 Indianapolis 8-3 with losses vs Jaguars/Steelers/Falcons this CPU powerhouse may make a splash in the PO's if given the opportunity to strike. Plus they're just a game behind division leader Jacksonville.

#6 Denver 8-3 with losses vs Oakland(2)/San Diego this CPU team will be a close 2nd behind them Raiders.


NFC's playoff scenarios are much clearer with the lack of competition from lower tier users/cpu,

1st Round Bye
#1 San Francisco 11-0 as the only team left in undefeated row 2-time Super Bowl champion in 2011 is poised to make a run at the bling thing.

#2 Dallas 10-1 with their only loss vs 49ers this former champion will not stop until he wears the coveted prize as well

Wildcard Bound
#3 New Orleans 9-2 with their only losses vs Bucs/Colts this powerhouse is still poised for a title shot. With a win this week and a Falcons loss the Saints will clinch PO birth/ NFC South division

#4 Minnesota 5-5-1 with losses vs Chargers/Chiefs/Packers(2)/Raiders this weak CPU squad is just in the right division at the right time. But with the division race so close their are still 3 teams in the hunt for the divisional title.

#5 New York Giants 9-2 with losses vs 49ers/Saints this team will get into form to avoid losing to any lesser squad or cpu. But is still in the hunt for the NFC East just 1-game behind the Cowboys

#6 St Louis 6-5 with losses vs Eagles/Saints/Giants/Ravens/Cowboys this CPU is just as weak as the Vikings and is still fighting with 5+ other NFC squads for the coveted final spot in the playoffs.

Need Members:
As you may know we have 2 owners out due to disc issues and we have shrunk down to just 11 members, with 9-weeks remaining in the season we now need to push for a better season 2. The more members we have the better the competition, but we need to make sure we have communication as things move much better when games are played sooner or on time. Spread the word MSF-ites as we need to build on our brand!!!
