Sometime in August, a few friends tried to convince me to stream a "simulation" of the 2020 season on Twitch, sort of a "what if COVID hadn't changed everything" type of scenario, and right around the start of September I actually looked up some stuff, discovered that the game has a modding community, and figured what the hell and started setting it up. I downloaded a custom roster and 2020 schedule and modded them both into the game. The roster is "mostly complete", in that there are still about 200 players across 15 teams with the placeholder name "X X", but in general most teams have most of their pre-opt-out rosters intact. I did notice some issues with the schedule I found, but I fixed all of the major issues so that all of the games are accurate at least to the week, and if I find time later I'll fix some issues where games on Thursday in the mod were actually planned for Saturday or whatever, as well as some weird kickoff time patterns, but there are some bigger priorities.
This past weekend, I finally got *something* up and streamed a bunch of Week 0 and Week 1 games between Sunday and Tuesday, and started Week 2 with a game last night and 2 more tonight. The full week 2 stream schedule is HERE, and the stream itself can be found HERE. It wasn't until just a bit ago when a couple more friends expressed an interest in it that I realized there might be wider audience than just the first 2-3 people, hence why I'm here. Also, I guess technically this might violate the CGs even though there's roughly a 0.0% chance that I could monetize this even if I wanted to, so go ahead and remove or downvote as necessary.
Going forward, I plan to add more info to the website (full weekly schedules/results, conference standings, rankings), but mostly I wanted to try to emulate a season as closely as possible, streaming a selection of games every day they were originally scheduled to air (#MACtion on Tuesday and Wednesday, a smattering of Thursday and Friday games, etc), and then all of the conference championships plus most or all of the bowl games including some form of College Football Playoff.
