    We here at Freshman Orientation are falling in line with many other leagues that have begun putting the clamp down on the Read Option.

    It is no secret that the Read Option plays are overpowering and the defense EA has created just isn't fairly suited to contain it. So from here on out users SHOULD NOT be running an offense that is based on the Read Option.

    This doesn't mean you can never run this play, just don't highlight it as an offensive strategy. Also, refrain from going back to it anytime you 'need' a positive play. (i.e., 3rd downs, 4th qtr, redzone etc..)

    There is hope that EA will push out some patches that will address this, but until then please abide by the new rules.

    *This rule only applies to Read Option plays. All other options are currently still fair game.*

    I agree. I know I have it in my play book. I try not to make a staple of my offense. I have other runs I can do. That being said, most of my play book is out of the shotgun, so a lot of my runs might look like the read option, but it isn't.

    yeah my entire offense is either shotgun or pistol. I have no other formations outside of goalline. So I run some options as well, but as you said, make a point to not just abuse the AI with it. And call much fewer options than I probably should
