    Good stuff, almost had me in tears, felt like the writer was speaking directly to me and my issues, reminded me of a legacy wishlist write up instead of actual in-game fixes. Ready to see some video and personally respected hands on testimony in hopes that I can finally go back in my hole or under my bridge to play football games instead of posting about them.

    Hopefully now you understand why I didn't get into some of the issues you posted. No sense beating a resurrected dead horse.:)

    Ditto. Not that I could talk about them anyway.

    Same, but that's never stopped me from arguing about things in generalities.:)

    The Infinity Engine used in "Madden 13" has been improved and installed in "NCAA 14."

    A lot of this sounds promising, but I think there are already too many big hits in the game. Seems they're only going to have more. I just don't want to see my 230 lb power back getting rocked by a corner.

    My only reservation up to this point as well.

    That said, them building on the Read Option work they did last year, leads me to believe you won't be handicapped now with an option offense against opponents. I hope.

    Yep, here's the Florida State one:

    Although looking at the Northwestern/Maryland pic, not sure if they got their sleeves in. Hopefully they do though.

    Glad to see the veer option in there. Hopefully they finally included the option into the Split Back formations because the split back veer is a favorite offense of mine.

    Also, as far as the new physics engine goes, I didn't play Madden much at all but I hope this means that defensive lineman will be able to get off blocks more fluidly

    Based on that video adidas-brand teams finally got some love with adidas gloves. The ones Notre Dame player has on are the Adizero Smoke. (1:13 mark)

    I like hearing that the Wildcat QB won't be stuck at QB for the entire no huddle possession.
