“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”
"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
"The experience he has from last year is starting to show," Jazz forward Gordon Hayward said. "He’s making shots, and he made some gutsy plays against Portland. He’s got a confidence about him that he can get the job done."
I played half a game UM v. MSU - I wanted to try the new (on ps2) super sim feature - turns out this was a mistake as my team blew an 11 point fourth quarter lead and the sparties scored 15 unanswered in the 4th. (The CPU must have thought LLoyd was still coaching).
I played on heisman and wow - it seems like they finally got a cpu thats not impossible to beat and is not a cakewalk - the cpu was just right. However, they are awesome at running the ball on offense - ringer was consistently getting 6 yards or more a carry. Don't bother rushing with the D-line they cannot get off blocks, hope that a well timed cb and lb blitz can get to the qb because the d line ain't gonna do it.
The graphics were more polished and the game played a lot faster than last year.
I played Carlos Brown at QB - I'd reccomend doing this as he has the same qb rating as threet and you can actually have a running threat under center. He throws the ball well enough.
Some of the frosh in the game need to be tweaked (their speed ratings are not indicative at all) - especially T-rob (he also needs to be flipped to a wr).
Lopata for whatever reason is beyond awful - a 58.
i keep hearing that naming the rosters screws it up in dynasty mode.
is that only for ps3 online or would it affect ps2 dynasty.
cuz me and 6 other guys are going to be playing a dynasty and we're kinda anal retentive about the names
the madden mania forums over @ operation sports seem to be a pretty good resource for people with questions. link to ncaa forums below. most people are discussing the issues with xbox360/ps3 and roster editing. don't see anyone commenting on ps2.
