    Pro:
    -FleXbox One running works now with the suction removed.
    -Pistol/Shotgun running is improved 200%
    -Zone coverage is a viable option
    -Custom Playbook interface looks incredible, and will create a more unique OD experience imo because people can create schemes that fit their style exactly.

    Cons:
    -4-2-5 and 3-3-5 alignment still looks horrid at times

    My opinion is that its weird that you made a thread name with "r" instead of "are" :D . But I haven't played the demo for 5 days now.

    RyanC how do you know fleXbox One was improved?

    And I love the running game and I played a good amount of zone in 11, so defensive playcalling for me will be fun. There were negatives I saw but I can't remember them now

    I havn't gotten to play the demo but maybe twice and I wasn't that impressed with the graphics. Gameplay seemed to be sped up and the tackling animations did look better. I'm glad to see running out of shotgun is improved.

    I don't understand what everyones problems are with the graphics. Everything is improved other than the grass. The fans are improved. They look better in the stands. The player look better. The atmosphere looks better. The replay grass is phenomenal. at sometimes it does look like the grass needs to be trimmed. The only thing I have a prob with is the grass from actuall gameplay. To me that's not that big a deal. I'd take a little negative hit there if everything else is improved. The lighting is amazing also.

    It's not necessarily 15$
    It's 40% extra when you trade in any game towards 12 and an extra 10% if you have the powerup card.

    yep, information i received was FALSE!!! i got an 8 dollar credit along with 10% bonus with their gamestop power up card my buddy let me use. If 12 had been an E3 promoted game then we could've gotten 40% off 12 with it, but alas it is not!

    i'll double check when i go tomorrow with to actually trade it in and make sure they give me all my discounts. I went by today to see what my balance for the game was since i already put some money down.

    Have to say i've enjoyed going this long without playing ncaa. I probably won't even get it on the 12th when it releases. I'll end up waiting until the 15th if even that soon. I know our league won't be starting until rosters drop and that probably won't be until first week of august at the earliest.

    It won't take that long to get rosters. Should be from my experience a week and a half at the most. Who's rosters does our league download?

    amazon's trade in for ncaa 11 is $11....they've also got a preorder bonus of $20 credit on amazon, so its basically $31 towards your next purchase on amazon.

    TSO has a roster project going here and with all of the support and input we have here, I'm hoping ours are going to be really good. I'm not sure how long they will take to complete though. There is a forum on here specifically for the TSO roster project and a thread about each team where members can help with the development of each team. So, if you are particulally knowledgeable about your teams 2012 roster and depth chart, jump in and help out.
