  1. So... 15,000 and Beyond .... Battlefield 4 M320 SMK (Smoke GL) Kills.. G.O.A.T. - YouTube Hearing how awesome other thought I was never struck a chord with me but Lol This video was a personally satisfying destruction of one of the best competitive teams ever . And I made them say Uncle and want to be like me in this game LOL I watch this when I feel down on myself . Because what about grown men calling you theb est gets old ? NOTHING . With this long WINDED >> Vintage jblaz spree shared and one final HSN game thread taken in yesterday . I wish everyone here the very best Thanks to the remaining old days mods for having me here all these years. I never really felt like I fit in here all the way either. That was good and the thing I always told Ken I appreciated most about this place. this was a place to step out of my gamer circle of friends "status" and be a normal joe schmo. Going to miss the site! Much love and best wishes . HOG KAPONYA
  2. God gives everyone a "calling" and despite how cool it seem I failed at my real dream of making it in sports due in part to bad luck bad timing and bad attitude. I'll just leave that at that., However I can say with all assurances since I suck at everything else in life - I likely have ignored my "calling" of natural gifts because think about it ."Jocks and geeks" are oil and water and I never did well at fitting into that crowd.
  3. And while I'm at it! I've been around these HSN boards for a decade plus now. This was overdue after this many years of reading everyone else's hobbies and likes and neat things people may not know. Never been big into sharing personally. I like to keep my compartments separate .. Think I was just saying that in another thread this week actually Ken was the only one who had a clue about any of it since he is the only one who ever actually called me from the well- known people here. Kept it don't ask don't tell mostly , , but I feel the imbalance of knowing more about most here than they would ever have an inkling of .So I am doing this for Ken... He was my friend and i miss him and the least I could do is share something about me for once.. Honestly I consider gaming "my" world and World #1 rankings earned an untold actually deserve overdue talk whether it is some dumb s**t like this or not. World Number One ......Kind took this many years to sink in that #1 on earth in something is worth a 2nd back/// I left those days behind to focus on my kid But make no mistake Im an OG of all PC gaming ever.
  4. This stuff never struck me as big nor did popularity. Still doesn't I have an aversion to being popular since I'm pretty introverted about anything anyone else might consider impressive or meaningful .. That was not a good fit for my group in those days but wins were and top rankings were required. So I just did the minimum to fit in where I got in. It was the opposite of why I did what I did ..Just like everywhere else. Popularity always meant jack s*** to me because I was ok with knowing what was under the lid ! Felt I proved it plenty of times to the ones who I was playing with and going against .All I needed to ! My best friend IRL STILL calls me a stupid *** ****ing numbskull idiot for not becoming a famous gamer! LMFAO!! I only thought this is all relevant to this neat thread. So why the hell not share the truth for a change., Just to be certain nothing is being misplaced I am objectively qualified to speak on who is good and who isn't when it comes to gaming though! Helped train many so called "gamer- stars" without a peep of thanks or public recognition!.. Bc you just have to have been there for the real sports to see wy this pales in comparison. The best part of it all is knowing my son and nephew will never look up to another man more than their own dad and unc since this stuff is life to these kids nowadays If anyone ever wants to play some in NCAA once it's out just DM . I have a little list of old gamer buddies to chop down for a bit once it drops , but Ill get to the bottom of it Eventually will be ready for "next up" with whoever wants it , though. I was just telling someone here I love it when other gamers self-aggrandize.. Always have enjoyed going in random games as some anonymous nobody user id and whipping this s***out of these modern day "pros" .. Still do!
  5. IU v UM Madden 08 PC College Football 15 Mod - test vid from old PC - YouTube UM and OSU were of course "big dreams " seemingly out of real world reach forever , so I only played them in exhibition mode which is the only ones I was permitted to share by the mod 's maker who let the leak go to me. Sucked a bit bc I wanted to share actual season play on dynasty it ..Unfortunately at the time , I was bound by word and a bit of a confidentiality agreement since it was technically not allowed due to lacking official licensing. lol. Would have gotten myself sued for sharing the mod itself. Viewers would ask in the comments and cuss me out when I had to refuse so I shut the whole thing down .Got old being called all of those nasty names but wasn't up to me . This is the "ABOUT" from the Youtube channel...My old competitive team was literally the best there was in those years .... On a related note. This why I once asked Ken to please never nominate me to be a moderator here ever. No matter what he thought! I was already the lead mod on House Of Gamers and lead recruiter.. Too much on the plate! But I am a considered by "them idiots" actually " my idiots" that I recruited personally - a legendary moderator among my inner circle. Funny and true ! XD Description[HOG]KAPONYA was a member, and co-administrator of the Original HOG House Of Gamers community(USA) - a Battlefield 2 focused PC gaming and modding community of the mid-2000's. The original House Of Gamers motto was: "NOTHING STOPS A HOG!" HOG's Battlefield 2 v1.0 and Call Of Duty 4 Modern Warfare 1 team fielded by the original community was "[HOG]Elite"- Former multiple division winners of the now-defunct Team Warfare League(T.W.L.). Due to their success HOG enjoyed World #1 ranked servers on multiple occasions. The original HOG web domain names "houseofgamers.com" & "hog-hq.com" were eventually disbanded from, after members voted to end the days of competitive participation and web/game server hosting circa-2014. Both name and domain have since changed hands multiple times. Many so-called "House Of Gamers" groups under the [HOG] moniker have came and went in the ensuing years. [HOG]KAPONYA later became BF4's all-platform World #1 & #3 M320 Smoke Kills Leader aka "Smoke Lord"
  6. Indiana shut out of Ohio State on a PC Madden 08 -to- College Football MOD - YouTube It's crazy I would have to make these private and shut my comments down after 2 hours back when this was still being played lol I would get 5kviews /likes on these but I just made them public them so you all can see them, now. To keep privacy and low key I killed this channel at least 500 times ..just locked them all for a year or two til they cooled off and everyone left. I played that mod for 1 season but I could still Keep "all-Madden out of the endzone sometimes even in 2015. EA will never make a presentation better than that CBS mod though. That is(was as of right now LOL ) about as well kept of a secret treasure and just hearing that music got me fired up! I always dreamed of seeing IU play a CBS bowl and get that intro music in real life , from then on. To this very day!
  7. Damn I just logged into origin.I have 150 friend requests Lmao. Been a couple months bit that is S.O.S.D.D!. I have 7 "friends" All of them are literally the ones who beat me in Madden 08 on PC over the years ! I probably suck now but Madden doesn't change mich so idk .Have to find out sometime if it is like riding a bike..That is if I ever get time to play one again.
  8. I'll link a vid or two of that old mod's gameplay once my kid gets off my computer for a few. Where I'm from and when , gamers were a joke and I never really took pride enough in it to share with people. Dumb call by me walking away, and they make a living off playing and broadcasting video games fhese days.. I still think it's totally nuts.Unheard of back in the late 90s and early 2000s If I wasn't legitimately "pro" caliber at any point id not even be telling you all.HOG KAPONYA on yt if you evver get cruious.Now my games are dead so idgaf if ppl know.Npt going to make a life of it .LOL I feel too old for that.Just saying. Used to be a private channel in my gaming heyday.When my kid was born I used my downtime at home with an infant to toddler so it was just spmething tp do to me .Haha I Having played at a pretty decent level in actual sports in the past against eventual IHSAA. and D1 ppl it just wasnt my calling and honestly I was ahead of the times a bit with video gaming. Platforms weren't totally ready for where video gaming is now in mainstream life. However it is actual fact.I am/was the G.O.A.T .with the.most difficult weapon in the "Battlefield" game series.The link is upper right on the YT channel HOG KAPONYA to the world weapon leaderboard for my weapon of choice .I innovated their weapon in their FPS game and EA fanboyed out on me .Even gave me free EA games for life so Ill have this new College Football day 1 release though . I got those images before they sunset their BF4 leaderboards and forums a couple yrs ago.Bc pics or it didnt happen!!
  9. Cool! I miss the convenience of having an IU roster that was modern without any game modding . The last football game I played was a leaked Madden 08 PC Mod that gave me the 2014 D1 teams. A guy who played by UGAGODAWGS12 made a shared import roster file for it. A guy who played by Calhouppes made a script that changed field lines and hashes etc to NCAA from NFL and a ton of other stuff to complete the college game "realism". I split my qbs between Diamont and Sudfeld. Had Tevin Coleman as my back and moved Ty or Adam(forgot which brother) Replogle to fullback since I wanted to use Diamont for my version of a triple option. Since about 4 ppl had it there was nobody to play but I played on "All-Madden" which for the mod made it "All-American" setting . I still troll UGAGODAWGS about spelling Replogle as "Repogle" .I now remind him that kind of thing went to show how disrespected IU was and how nice it is that the real IU plays loke my teams did now.EA might actually put some effort into an IU team now that it will probably be a ranked team during the game's development stage. By pure coincidence of a #1 world ranking and a long long story in a separate game , I'm a bit of a Electronic Arts "insider" now though .Lol
  10. 19-46 from the field is still 50 percent when you take TJDs 3-11 out of it. That remainder from his supporting cast is generally what I'd consider well enough to be in a game. It's not over yet but margin for error is gone.
  11. Where is Trace today.... This is why I don't even care to hear draft talk on him. He's not ready!!! Unless we are talking G League but he would get eaten there too with what I've saw( more like not saw) out of him so far this afternoon.! Today isn't the first time he apears to be checked out for most of the day either .
  12. Some coaches are definitely more known for bad sub patterns than others.Fran is just Fran to me .lol He's blown it with all of his loaded teams over his entire tenure. I don't mind seeing them extend him for that reason. Edit: To expand slightly on this some of it is lack of understanding of a players IQ. Some kids respond to foul trouble with better focus and self-control . When it comes to high IQ guys with talent usually boils down to the coach just doesnt have the balls to take a chance with players who are a bit more cerebral. Not sure if lacking testicular forttitude fits Archie so well, as much as his criteria for a shorter or longer leash with certain kids does.
  13. The way a game is being called factors in.Not every instance warrants sitting the kids with 2 . Gotta admit it just hasn't always made sense when Archie has sat kids in general.Today at least lends to why since we aren't being done any favors by the stripes.
  14. This.... TJD and the rest of the team just don't show up at the same level on the same day often enough to move the needle higher this season.
  15. RIP Mr.Clisby Sad news.Had kept following after the original thread about his diagnosos. Hoped to never see this one.
  16. This thread makes me appreciate being among those who see nothing to envy. They're good and in good shape. Is what it .is. Sports are too cyclical, and so are hires and rosters to view them in absolutes. IU has "non-perishable resources" so to speak. That means something even if the masses lose sight of that and why I always refer to "the masses" as "them a**es" to my offline buddies. Hell IUFB lost for 100 years and they hit 2 decent hires and all is well. Just how I see things, and why I don't invest too deeply into permanent tickets for the gloom train. Just have to flush some years and move on even if it feels like too many of them in too short of a time. Even if I can find a lot I would like to see done at a higher level within the compartment of a given season , just remind myself they are all merely compartments. Nothing more nothing less. At the end of each season bad or good my attitude is like that Semisonic song says: "Closing time . Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." Some beginnings start forming in one compartment, and carry over and that is where it is this year in particular, to me, Painter was a joke to this board and Purdue was ready to run him out of town not too too long ago. Illinois is no different. We were ready to keep Crean forever after the Watshot. Times change...always .but sometimes it is fast sometimes not so much. For better or worse staying put on that perspective and screw Purdue....ALWAYS! And F Illinois since I brought them into this too!
  17. I'm over here watching Arkansas finish off Mizzou. Smith probably had his best game in what is probably their most meaningful game so far since he arrived. Still....The thing that's bugging me, is seeing how much Freshmen Davonte Davis and Moses Moody are being used in critical situations. I feel envious in thinking they've looked no better or worse than IU's Freshmen have at times relatively speaking. They're making Freshman mistakes but just getting to ride those out on the floor more often. It was rewarded this afternoon and only makes it harder to see IU's young guys getting pulled for experienced guards who are no more productive than the more experienced Sills or Notae have been for Ark You see how it is working out for them too- in a top 10 game with the young kids being so confident at the end! Their young kids got more attempts than Indiana's entire bench did this afternoon for that matter. But no point other than frustration and the sake of discussion.
  18. @BGleas and @Inequality Congratulations and much deserved! Apologies that I missed this 'til now mates! Gleas I was JUST going to be a typical Laker fan & trash talk the Celtics in the pros thread a couple of days ago! Not finding this before today might not have worked out so bad after all
  19. Thank you HH! I appreciate you, man! I hope everything is ok, and it's just a matter of feeling ready to move to non-Mod regular..
  20. https://247sports.com/LongFormArticle/Sam-Howell-Spencer-Rattler-Matt-Corral-college-football-top-returning-quarterbacks-160329204/#160329204_1 24/7 put this up rating the top returning QBs the other day , but I just found it so if it's up would someone please remove? Do you all agree with where they have Penix. or think it's too low or too high instead? Also, if there are any names you think should be on the list or any who should be removed, then who? I personally think it's too soon to tell until we see how Penix looks coming off this injury, but potentially too low if he can regain confidence in his body quickly enough.
  21. FWIW , I managed to turn up one familiar name who might be inclined to agree with you in thinking it might be a good move by UT. Older article but a snapshot of the respect he'd already earned as a coordinator. https://www.newson6.com/story/5e365dd92f69d76f62071c32/kevin-wilson-tells-toby-rowland-that-heupel-is-calling-the-shots-in-fiesta-bowl
  22. Are trouble .. Oof!!! What game did I come back home to? We were down 7 with like a minute left in the first and I came back to a double digit lead. Haha!
  23. You threw them all into the crowd on ladies night again didn't you 5 Fouls is just foul trouble in the pros right
  24. Starting to think this isn't a lateral move, with all due respect and appreciation for Wommack! Im stoked after initially being a little surprised and completely uninformed at first. Clear upgrade on the surface amd by all accounts from a perception standpoint, although I lean on trust in Allen most of all to guage the fit for the LEO culture. Added big time SEC and NFL prospect related cred is not a joke in those living rooms( errr , i mean , zoom meetings) where someone has to separate IU from everyone else bringing a strong sell hoping to steal a few kids from the South . CTA probanly feels good about this if I were a betting man.I sure do! Lol. I normally think to myself if a specific move IU makes within either the FB or BB coaching staff helps the overall "sell" look stronger or weaker than the person in the job before. Anyone associated with UGA should kinda gave this one away.I did consider a few of the negatives floating around out there - namely that they allowed historic passing totals against his secondary and some people were not happy about that. He isn't coming to run the DB room though , and again goes back to trust in Allen. My expectations are do better guardibg against big plays than Wommack's version and hopefully not fall off in any area of strength at worst case.Charlton probably became familiar enough with the types of blended running with downfield attacks that got IU out of sync - while at Air Force.Benefit of the doubt here and mucb optimism until given reasons to feel. otherwise. However, I just started being aware of the likely move and looking closer thanks to a talk with Leather earlier.
  25. That's is why I have been loving the 4-2-5 the way CTA's system employs it! To expand further on what you said . Favorite thing is how it can morph on the fly into aspects of a 4-3 , a 3-4- starting from the 5 back end elements of the Nickel.The disguises are near limitless drawing from more than one base set to expand or collapse into as the play develops. They showed out a lot though with all of the TFLs and INTs. Skillset of the Husky and a pass rush presence really make or break it being more worth running than any of the others it draws from..I'd likely be disappointed to see the talent at Husky fall off but not applicable for now fortunately. The versatile, rangy, sideline to sideline kids we have behind the D-line make the 4-2-5 look like an opponent's nightmare when it is being executed properly. Flashed that back when Scales, Covington and co played it but now we are really seeing the fruits of upgrade talented DEPTH.. Our Corners are just scary in general and Im not sure it would matter what they were in .Top notch, but on the edges of the 4-2-5 it takes a lot of pressure off the LBs having someone always putting pressure on the offensive blockers tasked with locating them.Lol I think it has another level it can gp to and that is pure 4 quarter lights out.Not shy about that belief nor is Allen considering his own words and expectations.Lol The kids on the D were forced to play a lot more snaps than they ideally should have, as well so felt they did a great job making the most of a rough situation of little to no sustained run game providing a more of the ideal rest most of the time. The few occasions the time of possession was working to help it stay fresher through late game it was a finishing defense. There were voices out there questioning whether the TO rates were sustainable.To anyone paying attention tjat was a matter of developing better hands and finishing those plays off. This D probably dropped or mishandled 2 more potential takeaways per game in 2019 for the record.So I felt like the stats came with the execution improving but particularly with pressure. I think we still fumbled away 3 Balls on an InT so just shows that k7ch more are obvious controllable factors that can be improved to raise the ceiling.I hope ball security is a main priority coaching point once they go back and evaluate film.For both sides of the ball. I've enjoyed learning more of the intricacies of the 4-2-5 up to now that Ive saw it fly a bit more so looking forward to where Warren could possibly take it with recruiting after reading these links. Less concerned with Allen overseeing any hire but especially given his DC background guiding his hand in directing Warren to remain close to CTA's interpretation.
