    My initial thoughts after three games with UCLA...

    First the Bruins defense is horrible. I mean horrible. If you are wondering who I am recruiting, it will be D-E-F-E-N-S-E.

    Im not a huge fan of the new recruiting set up, but it may turn out great, I really don't know why they didn't put all of the ratings on one page, that is truly annoying.

    I played on Heisman last night in three games, and went 1-2 against SDSU, KSU and UT. The UT loss was old school CPU, down 24-7 in the 4th quarter, UT ended up winning 31-24.

    The one play that is happened to me 4 times in 3 games is the QB throwing the ball after he is hit, and it ends up being caught by a DE, and ran in for a TD. It reminded me of the old Playstation Defensive lineman jumping up and intercepting the ball when they were a yard away from the QB (Am I the only one that remembers that)

    I thought passing was much harder, which it probably needed to be, and running up the gut was a little easier.

    I was really disappointed with the rosters, even after I downloaded the ones from EA. They had 5 true Freshman added, and I only have 63 players, and Im sure Im not the only one in this situation.

    I think for years we have asked for a more realistic game where Western Kentucky couldn't beat Florida, well I think we have that game now. Talent level is going to be key in this game.

    Are we waiting on named rosters to be released? I don't want to wait on the sliders patch, and I agree we should start on All-American.

    Overall the game looks like it could be really good.

    One last thing, the dynasty enhancements really, really, piss me off. Twice I got caught thinking, "Recruiting advisor, that sounds like a cool new feature - WRONG" "Recruiting reports, that sounds cool - WRONG"

    I had no idea they would be that prevelant in the game. Just garbage.

    I think the patch may beat named rosters.

    I hate the dynasty "enhancements" as well.

    Welcome to the club..... Virginia's defense is downright pitiful.. got a guy rated 59 overall starting at DE.... need i say more? ok i will... my corners are tiny and basically slow with one exception.... and they are allergic to tackling....... (y)

    you just gotta adjust your game genie....thats all man..... no biggie...

    I guess i will have try running a dynasty to see what these enhancements are. I just have played on play now, and ranked games. It is a lot easier this year to contain the cheese of qb's rolling out pocket and running straight back.

    JR's comment on staying in the pocket is the golden rule this year on getting time to throw the ball, IMO.

    As far as settings this year, it really doesn't matter to me on what level we start off with. I just want a ruling on the "chew clock" feature.

    yeah im all for starting on all-american, just makes it a little more realistic because guys who are rated 60 and 70 will not play like they are 95

    I like the write up OM, and I agree this game has serious potential..its up to us as a community to make it work.

    I was in the dynasty just messing around and couldn't figure it out.

    I need the recruits, because right now I can't do shit with this UCLA team.

    Sand pounded me last night, and the worst part is that I felt like my defense wasn't terrible, but my offense can't do much at all. May have to retool the offense completely.
