    We didn't know exactly how likely it would be that one of us would get to go out this year. Despite having a 7-month-old daughter and a wife that leaves for work at 4 a.m... Somehow it came together that I'll be going for 2 days.

    As soon as the gates open I will be rushing the EA booth to see what I can come up with. Ryno knows a lot about the game so I'm sure whatever new info they are promising will be posted on the site regardless, but I'll do my best to answer any questions you may have about the gameplay or other tidbits, or good questions that you come up with for the developers that are on hand.

    The doors open at 3 PM EST today and the show will only be 6 hours. I have a laptop with me and my forum runner so I will be checking here and any updates or reports that I type up will just be posted here, and Shaun/Ryno/whomever can do with them as they please.

    So go ahead and let me know some things you'd like me to look for. As always, I will be digging into the dynasty mode as soon as I can to see how recruiting has changed, if at all. I am less likely to dig into something like the road to the Heisman or whatever it's called, but I can ask questions about it.

    awesome! have fun man, get some good info!

    This isn't too big of a deal, so if you don't manage to find out it's fine. But I was wondering if they put in Hawaii's team entrance where they run out of the helmet, and the cheerleaders run down the field, with one of the cheerleaders on a surfboard. I doubt it but that would be cool

    Are you willing to take some questions about 'Non EA' games?

    Yeah I mean I'll do what I can. I'm gonna be checking out Forza 4, FIFA, Madden, among others (for me it's "non NCAA' games that's the question and the answer is yeah I'll try... lol)

    Leaving for L.A. right now, because I don't do traffic jams. Especially of the Los Angeles variety.

    Helli - I want to know about the deep comeback route - both Madden and NCAA if you can.

    Against man to man - do the DB's break on the route before the WR's do (ie psychic db's?)

    I don't live to far away. I wanted to go this year but am working on a couple large projects and couldn't get away. It will be a good excuse to meetup and get some beers with everyone.

    I've been coming to E3 for a number of years, rarely missing it. It's the only time i get to be fully and completely engulfed in my video game geekdom with a barrage of sights and sounds that complement that passion perfectly. I even get to take photos of hot models lol.

    After all these years just pulling up to the concrete and block edifice of the convention center starts my juices flowing.

    id like to know if the transfer logic will be better now that coaching carousel is in...like will recruits decide to follow you if you leave...or leave schools when their coaches leave or if a new style comes in that they dont fit

    Ask if they plan on making the dynasty website better. It's pretty much trash right now imo. Would love to do everything you can do on the console, online, besides play the game of course.

    pretty much trash eh... lol

    well I have been planning to ask about that, hoping for some nice new features but frankly I would have murdered a man in public to get what we have now, two or three years ago.
