    Is it me, or is it nearly impossible to get Skill Points in practice as RB? Im doing good, real good. In games, I avg 8.0 yds a carry (im 3rd string) and was recruited by Alabama ... but in practice, the OLine can't block to save its live and I barely get a yard or 2 most of the time.

    Any tricks anybody can share? I don't wanna be a 3rd string for my 4 years there haha.

    yea it sucks, you just have to break off I think 10+ yards to get points, or somehow score a touchdown

    It helps to be more patient in practice, especially if you have a faster back.

    When you play the game your sliders are activated, so it can make it play a bit different.

    Yeah, I had this problem too, but kept at it and finally made second string. I thought I would be getting maybe 6 - 8 carries a game for the Crimson Tide, but no, I got to block on FGs and PATs. However in a top 5 showdown the Starter got hurt and I got to play middle of the 1st Quarter.

    The result: 25-136-2 and 6 catches for 88 yards.

    Now I am back to blocking on FGs and PATs.... :)

    I went from one practice to the next, skipping the evening event. Made starting and now all the cpu calls are passes. *shrug* just like my RTG WR team calls only runs...

    why if i play as RB i go to TN/UGA/WISC/GA TECH... if i play as a WR i go to CNCY/HAWAII/ND/SMU... sucks you have to only play at the pass happy/run happy school, but oh well at least youre involved...

    ive kind of stopped playing RTG altogether... for these reason...

    Yeah, if you're a WR then they call mostly runs, if you're a RB then they call a lot of passes. It drives me crazy. I haven't made a RB this year, but I'm finishing my QB Mark Richardson with Alabama then I'll go to RB. I did a RB in every game before this one. I know what you mean about the points though.

    yeah, I probably should have thought of that before hand instead of picking my college on account of the uniforms. :)
