    Yeah coach mode sounds kinda interesting. You call plays, audibles, and presnap shifts/adjustments.

    I also noted the following from their discussion:

    Dynasty News will be released May 23!!!

    Presentation Details:


    Dreads added this year. Long white boy hair will make it next year.

    New ASU Uniforms are in the game as well as a ton of other new gear.

    Combat Uni’s in the game this year. Half of these are available by downloading the demo and the other half are through a Gamestop preorder. After that, EA will pick a release date for these to the general public sometime during the year.

    Custom entrances will not apply to online user vs user dynasty games. (BOOO!!!!)

    Stat overlays will occur more frequently.

    Vols not running through the “T” this year. (Sorry vols fans)

    Roster requirements have not changed.

    Rivalry games get more extensive mascot scenes. (This sounds kinda cool)

    Fog has been added.

    Gameplay Notes:

    Pass Coverage – Less psychic coverage. More leverage used, DBs will shade inside to take away WR’s leverage on routes.

    There are still holes in zones but there will be less money plays.

    Different running styles – collision system contributes to this. Speed backs tend to get tackled backwards while power backs will fall forward most of the time. (Doesn't sound like NCAA is receiving the unique running styles that Madden will be sporting this year)

    Tackle button – You don’t have to use it, but hitting it will create a wrap animation.

    Camera angles - Press box view (utilized in coach mode)

    You can watch cpu vs cpu games.

    That's really all they got through. A lot of the same stuff we already knew. One of the gameplay developers was suppose to come in and address the gameplay changes but he didn't make it which was disappointing. One surprising moment was Ben and the other guy I forget his name, when asked if play action passes were fixed they all deferred to the guy that didn't show up. Does Ben really not know if play action passes have been fixed? Not sure why he couldn't of just answered the question.

    So the biggest news out of here is probably the May 23rd date for dynasty updates being released. I think this only pertains to dynasty mode though as big online dynasty details won't come out until around E3 (June 7-9).

    No "t" is very disappointing

    Coach mode seems interesting and I will love to be able to use zone more often.

    Hopefully the play action will be fixed because that's a fairly important layer of strategy.
