    For NCAA 2012 we are going to be doing our own Tradition Football NCAA Roster Project. It will be a collaboration of all of us putting our in depth knowledge of our own teams to use to benefit everyone.

    Don't worry about the logistics of getting them done in the game... let me worry about that part. Let's just start defining what each team is going to look like from a position depth chart point of view.

    I encourage you to take part in the process and help us get the most THOROUGH, ACCURATE and UP TO DATE rosters out there for NCAA.

    Let's do this the Tradition way.

    it's going to be community based... no one person will be "assigned" a team... instead, you will work with other fans of the team in that thread to give us the most accurate depth chart to start the season.

    not for the initial launch rosters... we are just renaming the default and getting the depth chart, demographics, height and weight right.

    There really isn't a need to talk about the depth chart etc. right? basically list players and their numbers or what? Since we aren't doing ratings changes and such we shouldn't have to worry about depth charts and the like correct?

    I think the bigger concern is we only have about 8 teams covered...

    Hopefully more people come on board when the release gets closer. The more we get done now the easier/faster it will be to complete.

    Well if we only need numbers, which is what I see right now as all that is needed ( we can do ratings edits later) then we could fly through teams just putting down positions and numbers so whoever puts the names in doesnt have to google everything.

    If all we're doing is numbers then we don't need these detailed depth-chart driven pages that are team previews. I would like for @RynoAid to chime in here when he gets the chance and give his 2 cents.

    once each teams prospectus is released and if NCAA 12 is going to have the team builder, it will make the process a lot smoother and easier.

    I'll help out with the University of Texas Thread. I have a lot of knowledge of those guys. In communication with a few of their players and coaches. LOL!!

    From my past experiences, we really need to hope EA releases the Teambuilder rosters to give us ample time to see what the rosters look like coming out of the box-- then we just match the people on the out of box roster to their names!

    When should we expect ths to pick up? I mean all we need is numbers for the names. all te depth charts are unnecessary right?

    Well yes and no. Chances are that EA doesn't have enough info to get the depth charts right. Also with transfers and other unfortunate reasons (Aaron Douglas death, Brandon Wimberly being shot) some players will be on the roster that shouldn't be and a lot will be starters.

    I wasn't sure if we were doing "adjustments", but if we are then I see exactly what you're saying. My understanding was we were simply naming them is all though.

    Once the team builder site goes up it will be a lot easier to determine how the rosters are going to look. We are probably going to need a good 3-5 guys putting in a lot of work getting these templates done.

    EA puts FR on the squads that won't be on the dept charts or the rosters because they have not enrolled yet. Using the TB allows you to match up the FR that don't match anyone on the roster. At that point you have to use rivals.com and the Phil Steele magazine to match them up using their height and weight.

    Its not an exact science but the team builder is the best way to plan for doing a roster file. Its a shame that the TB site for '12 won't be out until a week before the game comes out, that only makes this a lot harder and a lot longer to do.

    I know all of this bud, I am still just simply wondering if we are going deeper then just naming the rosters for the TF dynasties to use. It would appear we are.
