    nice job. I'm running a dynasty with some friends and family and we're actually going to try and balance things out a bit. basically create all 12-team, 2 division conferences with title games. and turn the Mountain West into a pseudo BCS conference.

    (the numbers are the teams preseason rank).

    Did EA allow full customization like that? like eliminate title games, rename conferences? etc?

    yup.

    you can actually create 16 team conferences. so if you wanted to you could do the super-conference total redesign of the NCAA.

    I see ND, Army, Navy, and BYU in conferences. I don't know if you know this, but there's a 1 team minimum for independents.

    cool I didn't know that. i'm sure there'll be a misplaced Mountain West team that'll jump at the chance to be independent ;-)

    I think I'm going to add them and from teambuilder and drop some MAC schools. Have them be indy for '11 then move em over in '12. If I can't find any authentic versions I'll probably make them myself.

    and I also read over at OS that the protected rival thing screws up the schedules big time in 2012 and beyond. so you're better off turning those off.

    and that includes the new Big Ten. I guess there are problems with some teams having more conference games than others, records for those conference games not getting tallied correctly, etc.

    Well thats terrific smh. Seems like EA would try testing there new features to see if they actually work, when I notice a problem 2 minutes out of the box.

    I'm guessing a lot of folks might be in the same boat, since i think Big Ten protected rivals are on by default.

    hopefully this is something EA will patch though, and probably wouldn't require a dynasty restart.

    (btw ... my prediction is Aquiliani will be huge for Liverpool this year ... can't believe nobody wants the guy ...)

    I love the guy.. Watched tons of Juve games this season and I thought he played pretty well. He also kills it for me in the TFL. He, Krasic and Marchisio are lights out ;)
