    Most Popular Playbooks Used

    Few Questions:

    What playbook do you mainly use?
    Top 3 Playbooks for Running
    Top 3 Playbooks for Passing
    Top 3 Playbooks for Option Run

    Defense?

    I myself use Oklahoma as it seems to be a pretty good mix of both run and passing plays. I tend to be more of a pocket passer, hardly ever rolling out.

    Defensively I just switched to a 3-4 this year to help stop the pass and I am having great success early on. Having 2 of my 3 games allowing just over 100 yards.

    Air Force on offense and the 3-4 look defensively

    On offense I use Georgia Tech.
    I grew up following Air Force and no matter how hard I try I can't get away from the fleXbox One. Occasionally I will also use Texas A&M because I like the balance and mix of under-center and shotgun.

    On defense I normally use 4-3.
    I feel most comfortable using 4-3 but every once in a while I switch it up and go 3-4. I don't like to use the Multiple D because it doesn't have enough depth in any formation for me.

    I just checked it out and I thought it was very good until I got to the shotgun. Three formations that are lined up almost identical with a lot of the same plays, a lot of which are useless misdirection running plays.

    i really liked the Ace, I, Weak, and Strong stuff in it.

    I think I'll check out some of these suggestions. I've only used the same playbooks as the team I'm using, so the only ones I've ever tried are USC, Miss St, Fresno State, and Cincinnati.

    You can get alot of good yrds out of shotgun this yr. In previous versions besides options running out of shotgun was a guarnteed loss. In fact I broke a 60 yrder last night.

    I run 4-3 on defense.

    For my pro style teams I use ND's. For my spread teams (my favorite style) I use Miss. St's.

    I'm not a big fan of the Buckeyes playbook, as you may have noticed in my comments at Rivalry.

    I just started using Auburn's playbook and like what I have found. It is mostly shotgun formations with some ace formations thrown in. It also has a good variety of wildcat plays.

    Passing: Florida, Miami (FL), Texas

    Rushing: Kansas State

    Option: Air Force, Auburn

    I like the ECU and Ohio State playbooks. The ECU book has alot of shotgun and single back sets with a really nice mix of outside/inside runs, spread formations, etc...I use the OSU playbook in both leagues I'm in right now because of it's running formations.

    Defensively I'd prefer to run the multiple d playbook, but I'll adjust to my personnel.

    Texas A&M is bye far the best playbook on the game, if you like to run a balanced offense. It has such a good mix of just about every formation you could think of, with the exception of fleXbox One, wishbone, etc. It has a 5 wide set and plenty of good running formations. I really like it.
    Defense: 4-2-5

    It's interesting that a lot of people mention UF's playbook as their #1 passing playbook. I think it's loaded for passing too with all the 4 and 5 wide sets, but in real life, UF runs a balanced offense. The playbook should be geared more towards the spread option and running the ball than it is.

    Then you get a playbook like Texas Tech's which should be all out air raid and it's not even getting an honorable mention in this thread for passing.

    Passing: Florida, TTU, and Hawaii/SMU
    Running: You can run the ball in this game???
    Defense: Multiple D/4-3.

    I hope for next year they bring over the 3-4 playbook from Madden that the Steelers or Ravens use. Those playbooks are sick. The 3-4 on NCAA is very generic.

    It sounds like some commishes have banned it for their leagues.. And others allow it.. All depends on if someone in the past has abused it in their league or not

    Maybe I'm boring, but I literally don't change my playbooks... I use the default ones the school or coach would use in real life.

    So I "play within the system" I suppose...

    Same here, I've tried changing every once in a while but I've never stuck with anything other than the default.

    You can play within the system while still changing up playbooks. I still run a pro style offense with UNC and a spread attack with Michigan, but I don't use the UNC or Michigan playbooks.
