Which is fine, they'd just hold up the game. I would advise turning those four penalties down to 25, because otherwise you will be called for holding or clipping on pretty much any big play. Offsides doesn't happen too much. The final screen is Custom AI.
This adjusts how the players abilities play out in the game. Right off, boot your FG power to 75 or more, or you won't make a 50 yarder. It's helpful to adjust these slightly in your favor, especially the offensive ones although running backs are already demi-gods in this game. Blocking is terrible, a tap can force an incompletion, and your quarterback can throw it 20 yards in the wrong direction without blinking.
On the defensive side, the computer is a full-fledged Zeus when it comes to defending the pass hence why I have adopted a run-first style again. Pass coverage should definitely be dropped. Interceptions aren't too bad. Also, because of the worst blocking to make it onto the internet, you will constantly have defenders in your backfield, so lowering their pass rush is recommended. If you boost Kickoff power to 55, almost every KO will be deep enough to force a touchback. Generating autonames is a great idea, although some people have rosters that are accurate with names if you would like them without all the painstake troble of doing it yourself see me.
And no Coach Contracts is cheap plus CC's are fun. Choose a save name for your dynasty, and then move on. If you wish to use your created team teambuilder. Add the team, choose a team to replace, and move on. Note that the team must be previously downloaded to use in the dynasty. You can add up to 12 teams per dynasty. Custom conferences is a fun addition, brought on by the recent changes Nebraska, Colorado, and TCU all moved during the offseason.
You can create a 16 team conference achievement , or just align the conferences so you face all the teams you want, every year. Beating rival teams adds to your coach rating, and is often a goal in contracts.
I've tried messing with conferences, but it just feels wrong. You can adjust the BCS to let in the winner of the Sun-Belt done it , and even empty the BCS of automatic berths my favorite option meaning that the top 10 teams in the nation earn a berth in the BCS bowl games. It's neat, and giving the Sun Belt and automatic berth nets you an achievement. Note that there is another achievement for editing conferences in the offseason. Before the season begins, every year, you get the opportunity to edit conferences and BCS berths.
The other easy achievment with these 3 is editing a division name of a conference. First off, you should try and find a team that fits your offensive style.
For me, NC State really fits in there. If you want total control of a team, choose Head Coach. If you want more of a challenge, choose a coordinator position. The more stars a team has, the more famous it is, and the less of a challenge recruiting will be. More often than not, they will be a better team as well. I find that it's a better challenge if I start as a 4 star or lower school. Don't sign a contract that has a goal or goals you won't complete, especially if they have huge negative impacts for failing.
Check your roster as well. Even if a school isn't the same play style as you, if they have a roster that allows that play style to proceed, then you can adapt them to your style. After you choose a team and sign the contract, you begin to work. I'm going to skip setting up the Recruiting Board in this section, since I'll do a whole lot more on recruiting later in the guide.
As a general rule, the recruiting help things are a waste of money, and I wouldn't bother. An extra pipeline state it helpful, but not worth the money, since it only lasts one season. If you do invest in that time saver, choose Texas. The best are from Texas. Texas will have the most Top players 9 out of 9 years.
Give a redshirt to anyone without the RS next to their year, and that you don't plan to use or might need like that third or fourth string player.
Another great time to Redshirt someone is when you have a really good player, but an even better player at their position. Redshirt them to keep the player for one more year. To be completely honest, the only time I touch the depth chart is if I make a promise of playing time, and to get the kick returner I want the game has a habit of not reading my mind. Otherwise, the game probably makes the best choice for who goes where.
This game isn't bad at rating players; you don't often see 70s having amazing plays. This has been a feature implemented since the beginning of the franchise You can play a max of 12 games, and a minimum of Remember, an open date is better for your strength of schedule than a game against an FCS team.
That's not a joke either. Some good schools to play are Akron the worst team in the game, but it doesn't hurt your SOS like an FCS game does , and any rivals you may have in your personal opinion. If you can't stand the Wildcats, play them. When you crush them, it makes you feel good.
Always try and play a top 25 team week 1 or 2. Beating a higher ranked team boosts your coach rating. No matter what happens, you cannot affect your conference schedule, either to get more home games or differently timed home games or to change the weeks you play the teams. After you take care of all that and preseason recruiting, see below , you are ready to start your season. The main part of this game. You'll play your 12, 13, or even 14 games if you have a conference championship and recruit players to fill your needs, both required by the league and what you need to fill your weak spots.
For me, I always find myself needing defensive players, but that's not important now more on that in recruiting later.
You, of course, have the option to play the games. If you're a coordinator, you only play your side of the ball. As a head coach, you can play both sides. Of course, you can always sim, but that's not a good idea. You'll lose games you shouldn't every time. Now I know this is a different game, but same developers EA. And I shouldn't have lost that many. I had some of the best players in the country 2 defensive all-americans, one first team all-american, ect. You can supersim the game to speed it up.
I like to supersim Defense sometimes as a head coach. If you do, be sure to do it one play at a time, or the computer is more likely to score it seems plus you always can spot when they are going to punt or kick off. Also, never supersim close games at the end, the computer always is more successful in the clutch. I'm not going to tell you how to play the game. My tricks won't work for everyone.
I'm run-first, then take advantage of the openings they give me when they try and stop the run. Some people are pass only, and some people are option players. And I think my defensive style would get dominated against by a compitent human. It's basically the same 4 plays, with some other mixed in if I think the computer has me beat. They won't lose except maybe twice a year and that's only about once a dynasty and they'll always have great recruiting classes.
You have to fight your way into the top if you don't take over the top. Don't expect to play in the national championship your first year unless you are one of those top schools. Work for it your second year, and third year. If you manage to stay undefeated and have a good class, both in recruiting and returning players, you will start ranked higher, and have an easier time making it to the top by the end of the season.
The main factors in determining rankings after the first season, which is set by what the rankings were at the creation of the game are conference, strength of schedule, and recruiting class. Also, the more starters you lose, the more your rank goes down. More on how to avoid that later. There's an achievement attached to this. This is the easy way to do it. Form your own Dynasty, and then absolutely whore a player. Call running plays like none other, and get your guy as many rushing yards and TDs as possible 38 is my record, All-American, none simmed.
Drop back to pass on every play, throw for many yards, and many touchdowns. On defense, just like in real life, it's almost impossible to win the Heisman many props to Charles Woodsen, who definitely deserved it. Same as a reciever. You would have to rely on that reciever so much that your quarterback would probably be in the running too. Remember that the Heisman is awarded, not to the best player, but to the player that means the most to his teams success.
Also, it is well-documented that the Heisman is "glitched". Basically, the more famous your program and the better your career has been, the more likely you are to win.
So winning it in one year, even at a school like Ohio State, can be fun. You are sent to bowl games based on your rankings. A team like Troy, a dominating force in the Sun Belt, may face a team like Kansas State, an average team in the Big Oklahoma and Stanford, dominating forces in the Big 12 and Pac, respectively, would likely face off in a bowl game.
For the best idea of the caliber team you will face, find teams with around the same number of stars as you. Those are your likely victims in bowl games. Just slaughter them in a nice fashion; it helps with rankings and offseason recruiting. A very fun time. It looks like it will take forever. It really only takes 4 hours. And that's if you're fast Pretty sure I misspelled that, but I don't give a rat's patooey see previous sentence for comment about last word of previous sentence.
Anyway, this is the part where schools offer you a job, and you either refuse or accept. A contract from your school always comes up first if one is offered.
Then you can either accept that or reject it. After that, no matter whether you accept the contract or reject it, you recieve offers from other schools. I call this the Mike Anderson rule angry Mizzou fan here. I honestly wouldn't go with that route, unless you really see a job that screams must take. I'd just stick with your school until they torch your ass, then get in with a rival and dominate their ass with a rusty spoon. Look, almost all the players leaving are going to be graduating, unless you are Ohio State or the like, when all your players are pro caliber straight outta HS.
That being said, anyone who wins a Heisman is likely to try and leave. As will any other award winners besides maybe kickers who are juniors. You can spend some recruiting time to keep them, but it cuts down on the amount of time you have during the first week of offseason recruiting. You can try until you convince him to stay, or he says he's leaving. I've had it work in 1 try and had it take 3 trys the worst part of that one was that he still left.
Oh yeah you can do the same thing to try and prevent transfers. I've never had anyone try and transfer to my school. So sorry I don't know much about this section. Sorry I'm not at home and I'm no where near an offseason, so I'm not sure exactly what order these go in.
I'm skipping Recruiting, and I think training comes up after change positions, but I'm not sure. Anyway, changing positions is a helpful thing to know about, even when recruiting.
If you think your big, slow linebacker isn't helpful, try switching him to defensive end. A lot of LBs that aren't good in coverage make better DEs anyway. I've recruited LBs to switch them to Defensive End. They actually ended up having a better overall at DE, and it has been a great call so far. Here's where it really helps though. Say you failed to recruit a Center. What to do, since you still need one to fill the roster. Just change over another Offensive Lineman! If you have an extra player at a position, switch him over to fill a need.
You can't have more than 70 players on a team, even with redshirts. So here's where you make your choices. And here's what sets this game apart from Madden other than the fact that the playoff system is so much worse. What everyone struggles with at some point. The bane of many people's existence. Why almost any competitive player only plays online and play now. It's not as hard as people think. Of course, many times the people who struggle with it don't think.
You know how I got good at it? I took over a low prestige school. It makes you learn how to recruit. There are 3 stages to recruiting. The easiest is pre-season. The most important and of course hardest is regular season recruiting. Just find 35 players you want to come to your school. Obviously you want the top 35 players. There's 2 problems with that. One, you can only give out 25 scholarships I think, I'm pretty sure I gave out 26 one year, but don't quote me on that. And more importantly, not all of them will want to come to your school.
Ones that have a green circle next to their name are "interested" in your school. Now let me explain what it means. It means you're on their top 10 list. You can be points below a top school, and as long as they aren't hard commited to the school you can still be on their "interested" list. There is also an interest bar on the other side, toward the right of your screen. This shows their interest level, how close they are to accepting a scholarship from your school.
There will always be some in Orange, which means they are more than halfway to commiting. All the others will be in red. Look at the interest percent to determine how close they are. Next, check their skills. If they don't have a skill set that you like, don't recruit them. At lower level recruits you are going to have to make sacrifices. After you've determined that there are players that are interested in your school and you are interested in, check how close you are to the school in first.
If you're more than points back, just give up. You won't come back, especially on a high level recruit top , The closer you are, the easier it will be to get into first and secure the recruit.
If you're already in first, congratulations. You still have to seal the deal more on that later. Now it comes time to reorganize the recruits. The higher a recruit is on your board, the happier they will be. So put your more valuable recruits near the top, and players like that punter thats overall near the bottom. They will like you more, the points you get on pitches will be higher, and you will move up faster the higher they are. Obviously no matter how high a recruit is, if nothing matches up he's not going to come, but it can push you over the top.
Since you only have 10 hours to spend a week, and a majority of the time will be divided up into 30 minute segments, that equals out to 20 players. So you should really only have around 25 players at a time, especially if you aren't in first or second on a lot of them.
I usually choose to focus on around players, and spend more time on each of them. I got an email about recruiting from a guy named Michael.
He suggested investing an hour into 10 players that I want and needed. Choose ones that match your play style. Then re-evaluate the recruiting board every 3 weeks. Some players will be commited to another school. Delete these players and add others. The place I would differ from his strategy is in how often you update your board. Every week that should be the first thing you do.
How many players have commited, either to you or to another school. Remember, you have 10 hours to spend, no matter how many recruits are commited toward your school. So always have 10 uncommited players, at least, on your board, to fully use your time. Another tip he gave me is how to recruit players that aren't interested in your school. It is possible, although it takes a little more time. Find a player that is still in the top 10 or top 8, then add him to your board.
The reason you go for one in top 8 or top 10 is that the player is probably not being recruited yet. And you will be surprised by the quality of the players left unrecruited. Promises help bring them in, and hard selling your pitches is still the best idea. Another thing to mention are JuCo Junior College players.
This is a slight break in tradition as the NCAA Football series traditionally featured an NFL rookie on the cover of the game, with an action shot of him wearing his college jersey from the previous year. The game was released for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. This version of the game utilized a feature called Turn the Tide , which consisted of a momentum meter on the score graphic at the top or bottom of the screen.
A boost in momentum for a team would increase the performance of all players and boost their attributes by a varying amount. Some of the new features for this version include Leadership Control, which allows players who perform well to "lead by example" and control the action on the field and increase their sphere of influence by improving their players' personal ratings on each big play.
The game also features a new and deeper recruiting system and an all-new Campus Legend mode. This was the first version of the game released on the PlayStation 3. It was released on all next generation consoles, including, for the first and only time, the Wii. The covers feature the following former college players:. It was released on all next generation consoles, with the exception of the Wii.
The cover athlete for all three versions is former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow. This was the last version of the game released for the PlayStation 2 , and the only version released for iOS.
The cover athlete was Mark Ingram Jr. The game's cover features former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson , who was decided by fan voting. Due to recent legal disputes between the association, Electronic Arts, college athletes, and others regarding the usage of college athletes' likenesses in video games which is currently barred by the NCAA because of the concept of sport amateurism , they would not renew their licensing deal with EA.
However, the expiration of the license only affects the use of the NCAA's trademarks in the games; teams and other events are licensed from schools individually or through organizations such as the Collegiate Licensing Company —who announced on the same day that they would extend its own licensing deal with EA through As such, EA ensured that with these existing deals in place, it would still be able to produce future versions of the franchise without the NCAA license as it did prior to ; EA Sports' executive vice president Andrew Wilson announced that the next edition of the franchise was already in development, and would "[still] feature the college teams, leagues, and all the innovation fans expect from EA Sports.
However, after the SEC , Big Ten , and Pac conferences announced that they would not license their trademarks to EA, the company announced on September 26, that it would not make a college football game for As of , the series has not returned, although Oregon and Texas licensed their team names for the story mode in Madden NFL Unofficial updates have been released to reflect current rosters.
Imackulate Gaming announced that in will release Gridiron Champions a College Football game that will not have real teams due to licensing issues but will let players make real teams or teams of their choice.
Players' real names and exact likenesses are not used in the game. While the Madden NFL series uses real player names and likenesses, those players are compensated for the use of their image. Due to NCAA restrictions on the amateur status of athletes, names are not allowed. Additionally, current college players cannot be used as cover athletes. Instead, each cover features a player whose college eligibility ended the season before the game's release, wearing his former college uniform.
Although EA Sports does not claim that the players in the game represent real life players, the jersey number, position, height, weight, home state, and ethnicity are aligned with the real players. Actual usage of a player's real name would be in violation of the NCAA's policy regarding student athletes.
Amateur "roster makers" will often manually associate player names and will upload a roster file to the built-in roster sharing system. In certain game modes, real players are given fake names. These would play at random, however the user-selected "favorite team" would always have their fight song played first whenever the game was first started.
NCAA Football 07 returned to the fight song only format. NCAA Football 09 allows a new custom stadium sounds feature allowing users to edit what sounds are heard at specific stadiums during events within the game, such as a touchdown, field goal, or timeout.
Fans of the teams can now create an authentic experience in each stadium by using copyrighted songs that EA is not allowed to put into the game. It was one of those games where anyone could actually play and be pretty competitive. The story mode, road to glory, had to be one of the best video game story modes in the video game industry.
You create your own player who in turn plays at either your own personal high school or you can create a high school. You then play a season at whatever position you choose fit, the best was always the quarterback position cause you choose the plays and can control the game. To some it was a game but to others it was a major influence on their lives.
Yes the players likeness were being used in this game, same as the NCAA College Basketball game in which the NCAA got sued by Ed O'bannon  , but the game taught decision making and what it looks like to be a college football player.
