    We didn't have a spot to talk about the game, so here goes.

    I ran a half as Michigan with Auburns playbook. I know you guys are very interested in the spread-option, so based off that half, I think you guys will like the way the game plays out of the box. I was able to run the QB power and the triple options out of various playbooks.

    I'm still looking for the inverted veer plays that Gators posted.

    That's good news, but of course there will never be another QB like Denard in NCAA '12 so I'm curious how it works with a normal "great" spread QB, like a 90 SPD/ACC/AGI.

    That play on the right is a HB run, it just looks like the QB up the middle.

    Aww shit your right! I never noticed that before. That's saddening.

    Thanks for the feedback on the spread option though, it's great to hear. I think a decent team you could try with the spread option would be Miss St against LSU. That should be pretty even. Miss St has plenty of speed to run it with and LSU has a pretty stout defense. Another squad you could try would be Northwestern with Dan Persa.

    That's the pic I showed that Gators called the inverted veer. If you're looking for one where the QB can either give it to the WR going left or keep it and go right, then that sounds like the jet counters that have been in the game for a couple years. There's one in gator heavy, normal wildcat, and wildcat spread. I'm not sure where else.

    It is all the way around much more sound.

    That is the pic he posted, I thought there would be an inverted veer, still looking through playbooks.

    That's good though. Their defense should be pretty ridiculous this season. Plus, you're a run n shoot / air raid guy, you don't know the spread option :)

    Wait until you see the video. I tossed it to the ground once and then tried to swat a ball in the end zone and ended up in the seats as he catches the ball.

    Shaun with all due respect it doesn't matter how well the game plays out of the box because the slider experts will continuously shit all over the default sliders.

    I second that lol. As much as I wish that he caught it at the back and stumbled into the front row, I know it means the player just went through the wall and was warped into the crowd. Would be happy to be wrong though.

    Just to put my impression into laymen's terms and after playing for several days now. The two major differences I see (and like) is that offense is more difficult to move the ball and the new improved zone scheme/play on defense.

    Oh and special teams is so much better...return and coverage game. Much more realistic

    That's all you are gonna get from me. I just play and love my game now for the next 12 months.
