    If y'all are planning on using a custom playbook, I'd like to see it posted here. Gives us a chance to make sure it looks realistic and not ridiculous.

    Will be posting mine later when I get home.

    I would caution everyone on using them just yet. It is a great addition to the game, but there is a glitch going around when using them. The glitch is all of plays at the playcalling screen turn into question marks and when you choose a play, all 11 players are trying to snap the ball. I'm sure EA will put a patch out or maybe they can do it in a tuner set idk.

    Yep. I've heard about it, but I've yet to see it. Seems to be happening to some people nonstop though.

    The first patch was supposed to fix it.

    I made a playbook called, "Power Spread"

    Uses a lot of TE oriented sets under center. The Ace, I, Power I are the secondary sets.

    The primary set I will be using will be, of course, the Shotgun. No 5 wide out sets and not very many 4 wide out sets either, as I like to run the ball out of the F Wing and other heavy running Shotgun plays.

    I'm undecided if I want to use this playbook with UNC however, as I may make one for them that is almost strictly under center without very many shotgun plays. This Power Spread playbook I've mostly been using with Michigan in play now games.

    My "Pistol Pass" playbook is, name confusion aside, about using the run to set up the pass. Having the "Full House" formation (diamond under center) along with the Pistol Full House and Train formations, I can get a lot of power runs up the middle, but can also lull a defense into defending the run and drilling them with a deep pass. But I also have a decent amount of 3 wide Pistol formations, along with a 4 wide set. Not much use out of the Shotgun plays yet, but the Maryland I is my goal line set, while I also have a few I form plays to dink and dunk with.

    I think for the first year at least I'm gonna use Nebraska's playbook. I may switch it up though as my personnel dictates but I'll post any changes here to be approved.

    I am going to run some multiple d sets. I pretty much plan on running 3-3-5, 4-2-5 and some 4-3 to utilize my depth in the secondary.

    I used my custom playbook for the first time today. Secone play from scrimmage I run into the playbook glitch and there was nothing I could do about it, had to quit the game and use a standard playbook.

    My custom playbook "Spread Option" works great. It involves many read options out of many shotgun sets but also can get physical and run some tighter options in some more run heavy sets. So far I have played like 5 games with it and have yet to have the glitch so I hope mine never gets any ?s.

    By my knowledge, it involves specific formations. If those formations are not in your playbook, you're good. I've heard Notre Dame's Leprechaun formation is one of them.
