    I created a Tommy Rees playbook, and I was probably overly proud of myself for how faithful it looked to the actual offense this year.

    The only issue I had was finding shotgun formations with enough variation on TE alignment and options for motion.

    I understand why bubble screens don't work in the video game, but the tunnel screens were a legit weapon in the '12 and '13 editions of the game. Idk how they got busted over one year of development.

    LOL. I had to look it up. Evidently he doubled down when getting harassed by making sure the correct score was reported.

    the first game they should just clone NCAA 14 with better graphics and then they can work on the bells and whistles for the following year.

    That's when I retired from Madden '20 lol.

    TL;DR I will beat the children with my old man wisdom and patience... then they'll tell me that they're gonna bang my girl while dropping 50-burgers on me when word gets out about the unstoppable RPO play from a particular alignment.

    I know they are going to be in the game, but it would be funny to say University of Our Lady of The Lake or Vatican State in the game.

    The key on the older games was 1000% find the small school team with a competent QB and a fast RB. If you had that, you win.

    I am currently still playing Ď14 on the PS3. Have a USF dynasty. The roster updates are best this time of year when they circle back to what ended up happening and not pre season depth charts.

    Did a massive realignment and my Sun Belt conference has Tulane, Coastal etc in it. They do a great job at OS besides I was playing in UCONNís stadium lol

    My favorite was one where I wouldn't recruit any WR's. I'd sign every pass-catching TE I could get, switched them to WR, and then couldn't be stopped when running the ball outside and with options. TE's blocking DB's breaks the game lol.
    What a cheat code! I never thought of doing that. And good, that means I've almost "beat" the game haha

    A lot - it comes and goes, man. I'm not much of a gamer and if I do play, it's usually NCAA. I'll go weeks without playing if I'm really into a show or a good book, but then sometimes the mood hits and I'll play two or three games in an evening.

    I keep it fun by leaving my program after I get them up to a 99 overall and jump ship for some shit team. Right now I'm at Marshall; take over the patsy 70 something overall, build them up, win a few Natties; wash rinse and repeat.

    I would be shocked if EA doesn’t figure out something to have ND in the game, They know how big of a brand ND is

    They always negotiated a separate deal with Notre Dame for these games. There was always a separate Notre Dame logo in the intro screen that showed all the licenses. This will be no different.

    I'll take +5 SPD for all ND RB's in game

    I get the impression there's no CLC exclusivity and EA is starting there because it's the largest bloc of CFB licenses. Hopefully, they'll negotiate with other licensing companies as well.
    pretty much the way it goes in soccer games (football manager etc) the producers have to negotiate with various football associations/leagues separately to get them into their games

    True, I think my kid will need a PS 6 then. When he goes to college it will be tougher to say it is for him.

    My wife will be going to sleep alone for a long time when this gets released. My dynasty needs me.
