2010 Media Guide 2010 Media Guide After a stellar showing in the '10 version of EA Sports NCAA Football, the Cream of the Crop Dynasty has been granted Premier status. Six of the owners participated in seven of Cream's eight seasons led by the 3-headed commissioning monster; Hoodlum, JFunk, and G-Unit. G-Unit ran a live draft on June 25th where all twelve members selected their teams for '11, then he put together a nice recap video. As we approach opening day of preseason, all teams will be participating in two-a-days by July 13th, it's time to start looking at what lies ahead for Cream of the Crop. We've already had some exciting information published, such as team ratings, exciting offensive players to watch, as well as the schedules. Let's take a brief look into the schedules. Week 1 starts off with a bang with 3 user games. The marquee game in Week 1 of Cream has to be JFunk taking his Preseason #1, defending National Champion, Alabama Crimson Tide to Death Valley to face MisterTide's tough underrated Clemson Tigers team. Also going head-to-head Week 1, G-Unit's Pokes from Oklahoma State travel to Athens to face Cream of the Crop newcomer, bamaboiking and his Georgia Bulldogs. In our last user-vs-user match-up, the Maryland Terrapins led by GSU Tiger will host Hoodlum and his new school, Missouri. The best user-vs-cpu match-up is what could be the best defense in the nation, runthepound's #22 North Carolina Tar Heels hosting the #17 Bayou Bengals, LSU. Week 2 features Missouri continuing their tour of the ACC, our first user-vs-user conference match-up, and three user-ranked cpu match-ups. Hoodlum's Missouri Tigers head to Chapel Hill for a tough game against runthepound. In our first in-conference user-vs-user match-up, bamaboiking takes his Georgia Bulldogs on the road to face KingCeps' South Carolina Gamecocks. Alabama will play their first home game as defending National Champions in almost two decades when they host #18 Penn State. JCA312 takes his #14 Miami Hurricanes to the Horseshoe to face the #2 Buckeyes of THE Ohio State University. Tuco's #15 Oklahoma Sooners will welcome the #21 Florida State Seminoles to Norman. In a match-up that has recently become more interesting, TRude and his Colorado Buffalos will get a preview of future conference opponent, Cal as they travel to Berkeley. Other exciting match-ups that standout in the schedule; JFunk and G-Unit continuing their rivalry in Week 3 when Okie State travels to Tuscaloosa to face the Crimson Tide and TRude and Colorado host JCA and Miami as they renew their rivalry from '10, which featured several close games. Week 4, features Tuco and runthepound squaring off as North Carolina plays Oklahoma and Oklahoma State travels to Maryland. As you can see, the first month of the season should be action-packed and get Cream of the Crop off to a great start for '11. Another thing to keep an eye on as the season progresses is conference records and some standout Croppers. At first glance, 16 Cream of the Crop players have a shot at breaking into the Top 10 Career Stat Leader List of 22 categories. We will be breaking down who we think has a shot in segments. The first segment will be Passing Yards in the ACC. Entering the 2010 Campaign, Croppers TJ Yates and Jacory Harris of North Carolina and Miami respectively sit within striking distance of the Top 10 All-Time passers in ACC history. Yates enters his senior season 2,923 yards short of being tied for the #10 spot with Joe Hamilton of Georgia Tech. Yates is coming off of a season in which he threw just 2,136 yards, but almost all of his receivers were true freshman, so he could have a huge year if any or some of them have breakout seasons. Harris enters his junior season having taken lumps as a freshman and sophomore playing in every single game of his Miami career having passed for 4,527 yards. Harris needs to average a little over 2,100 yards over the next two seasons to break into the Top 10. The real threat, with an opportunity to climb way up the list is not a Cropper. Russell Wilson is the latest of great Wolfpack signal callers from NC State. Phillip Rivers is the All-Time leading passer at 13,484 yards and his spot seems secure for quite awhile. Jamie Barnette, Rivers' predecessor, sits at #7 All-Time with 9,461 yards. Wilson who has thrown for just 18 yards shy of 5,000 yards in his first two years in Raleigh seems poised to finish his career somewhere in between. Enjoy the All-Time and Active Leader Tables in the next post and stay tuned for more breakdown of the ACC, Big XII, and SEC Record Books and the Croppers assault on them. Big XII Passing Yards leaders will be next. Thank you for reading our initial Media Guide, look for it to grow in the weeks leading up to the start of the 2010 Season of Cream of the Crop.
