    How do you guys feel? I'm curious what everyone thinks of this feature.

    i think it's a fun play on a real situation. Making FGs is too easy as it is so it adds a little excitement.

    I agree with Drifter. Since it's basically impossible to block them, this is the only way you can influence the play defensively.

    I love the feature. Especially when I have stopped an opponent inside the 10, out on the hash. Makes it a tough FG, especially if it is opposite the kickers direction. Have not had anybody miss one yet, but it feels real to me. I would expect it from an opponent in a game-winning or game-tying situation.

    The meter should be totally invisible to you, that would make it much harder. It is still easy to aim with the ice over the meter

    I like it. Only had it used against me once by H22. I have used it 2-3 times. I think kickers are 1-3 when I have used it against users.

    Makes the kick a lot harder esp on the road.

    Really? It has no effect on me whatsoever. I mean yeah it lowers the camera angle but that's it. I think its' a sim feature just for the fact it is in there to give the effect of a kickers' nerves 'kicking' in.

    i like it. It should be a bit tougher though. It's a great idea but i think if it was tougher then it would be more realistic. Like real life

    Toughness of the kick after being iced should be proportionate to the skill level, maturity and experience of your kicker. In addition to a number of other things like weather, wind and home/away.

    I agree, absolutely sim.... its the only way you can really influence the kick from a defensive standpoint... plus clutch kicks are anything but sure things in the NCAA

    Especially this year kickers were the worst I have seen in the clutch in a long time.

    Dakota lost a tough game vs me with 7 seconds left he missed a 35 yarder to tie the game :p was such a good game though. Good feature, gotta love the camera angle when the balls in the air.
