    I thought I'd post a few tidbits for you guys. I haven't seen any Wildcat sets in my user games, so I didn't know if any of us used it. Here's a few things many of you might not know about the Wildcat:
    1. You can not audible into or out of the Wildcat.
    2. The Wildcat sets do not have pre-set audibles built into them.
    3. You can, however, audible from a Wildcat play to another Wildcat play if you have one in your list of five audibles.
    Most people think there is only one Wildcat set. Some have seen two. In actuality, there are four different Wildcat sets. They are:
    1. The standard set - which you can find in a number of playbooks.
    2. Wildcat Twins - Features a WR split out to the left. This set exists in four books. I don't know them all, but I know my book (Kentucky) has it, and the Rutgers book has it also.
    3. Wildcat Twin TE - You can find this in the Rice and Troy books.
    4. Wildcat Wing Trips - Available only in the UAB book.
    I think this is all of them. Those of you who have a play-maker that you're having trouble getting the ball to might want to consider what he could do taking snaps.

    This is how I've managed to get my speedy backup QB in the game. I typically use it 1-2 times per contest, and have had fun doing so in user match-ups, too.

    Thanks for the audible tip! Didn't think of that.

    That Simpson 71 yard td on end around was out of wild cat. It is one of the highlights I posted.

    I know Lousiville and Oregon have a wildcat in their playbooks.
