    Is this cheesy???

    So I played Minnesota last week and I know they totally suck azz. I benched my #1 RB, #1 LB, and #1 CB. These are guys I cant afford to be injured if I want to win the next week against OSU.

    I definetly cant afford #1 HB to be hurt especially since Crews is already out for a while.

    After thinking about it....is this kind of cheesy. Should I have to play my starters in crappy CPU games???

    Coaches' decision IMO. Personally would play them and maybe rotate them out pretty early in the game but that's your decision as the Penn St. head coach and from talking to you, you seem to think this is your last chance...

    Right, coaches call....big game coming up, I'd be pissed one of my stars went down in a game I knew I was gonna romp in

    It's going to be interesting to see what happens if the cpu is much tougher in NCAA 10 and we are losing to the cpu as well as the user games

    NCAA is typically tough though, I know Helli and myself lost more than our fair share of games in the PS2 days to the cpu

    I agree but I always sort of handicapped myself to the point that I ended up losing. I remember having a Midd. Tennessee State dynasty where I never even sniffed a title lol. Take our recruiting restrictions and gameplay restrictions and I probably woulda.

    OK cool..........i was just thinking.

    Rhude this is what will happen.......in the 1st 2 seasons there will be some CPU losses...especially if we start on Heisman. The teams will be more even. Then after we steal most of the recruits and learn all the ways to beat up the AI.......it will beat down city again.....

    Also we are all veterans of the game.......it will take us no time to figure out the plays that work and vice a versa........it is the same story every year.

    EA AI is just no that good.

    True........I think next season alot of guys will be taking A schools again.

    They only way I take a crappy school is if EVERYONE takes one.

    yeah 3 big 12 titles is struggling, and currently working on a 4th in a row....you should be so lucky :p

    And I meant more recruiting wise, OU does not struggle in that department

    against A+ everyone else.

    I think the adaptive AI next year could be something worthwhile. Not sure how much effect it will have on AI holes, but at least you won't be able to just run to the outside everytime.

    Division Title........meh. BSC title....thats where it is at.

    O yeah 1 more and you will be caught up with good ole joe pa...

    Yeah recruiting is a joke with the Elite teams.......it is down right laughable with PSU. I leave so many stars on the table.

    I hope it is a bit harder next year....I hope the CPU puts up more of a fight.

    Also if the progression has been tweaked as they said it was....it will make it possible to build a team up with your guys progressing as they should

    Jonathan Campbell, who had a 3-4 week injury, was finally healthy for the Wisconsin game, which I played last night, but I want him to at least start the Penn State game healthy so I held him out completely.
