Bo Jackson Hit and Run Question

I've been practicing the football portion of Bo Jackson Hit and Run for Gameboy and have a question for the community.

The track rules are essentially non-existent.

https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/bo-jackson-hit-run/game-boy-game-boy-color

All that's written is: "Record is determined by point differential. For example: 17-0 = 17, 25-2 = 23. "

After you hit start on the football portion of the game it takes you to a screen where you can choose the length of the game/quarter - options are 1hr/15 min, 45min/11:15min, 30 min/7:30min, 15min/3:45min (first number is game length, second is quarter length). The selection bar is on 1 hour/15 min.

I'm assuming this would qualify as default, but would like the input from others before I go forward with recording. Ultimately the thing that makes me question it is that Tom Duncan has the current score at 74. Normally I wouldn't worry too much about that, but a) he tends to have pretty solid sports game scores and this doesn;t seem up to his normal performance (though could just be a product of the crappiness of the game, b) I just finished the first quarter having not played the game in 25 years, spent the first 5 minutes figuring out what I was doing, and still ended up with 23 points (so on track for well 80-90ish), and c) the time moves so slow in the game

In any case, I think I know what other's will say about it, but figured I'd ask before putting in more practice time and then dropping a couple hours on a crappy football game.

Also, as a side note, I'll probably create a track for the shortest game and put a score up on that, so people who might want to play the game don't have to invest a ridiculous amount of time to just move through the game.

    i dont know much. i mean sure, figuring out 'default' can often be pretty much common sense, but the problem is theres no guarantee TG originally used default. also i wouldnt read too much into tom's score, he seemed to do enough to be first, so for innaugrauls as well as when other scores are low, so are his since thats all he needs. usually for stuff like that i defer to whatever the active players agree on among themselves

    I say in absence of specific rules then defaults should apply. Maybe Tom got to halftime and was like Ok I'm Done lol. Anyway I'd say the hour long setting is the default and the default should be used.

    That's a general approach. This specific game - 70ish vs 90ish doesn't seem too outrageous and I have no reason to think the default setting would be impossible to have been used.

    These were my thoughts as well. Mostly just wanted to hear from others before I proceeded.

    After I get a submission for the default I'll add a track for the shortest game length mainly because it'll create something less tiresome and more enjoyable imo.
