I found myself watching how the back-up center handled his blocking responsibilities last night during the G. Tech game and realized that the UFR has changed the way I watch football. Am I the only one who has experienced a dramatic increase in his personal football knowledge because of Brian? I'm starting to measure my own intangibles!
Ive started reading smart football and tons of other blogs because of this site. I never played football but now have a much more advanced understanding of the game.
--on a weird note the last three nights I have had college football related dreams. Its actually kind of freaking me out, has this happened to anyone else? Do i need to stop devouring all of the college football content I can?
Shortly after the spring game, i remember having a dream about how Forcier was lighting it up in the fall. sounds cliche but it was a real dream; and when i woke up i wanted to cry because it was still the spring.
Me too man.
As far as very technical stuff, yes this site has helped. But I learned a lot of strategy from video games. On this freakin PS3's with how advanced they are, if you want to be good, you have to know football. It has taught me all about different defenses and coverages and what situations to use them in and why, and what types of plays and routes counter those defenses, and how to make pre-snap reads and all that stuff. This site has taught me technical things about individual positions, and video games have added to my overall understanding of strategy and play calling. Anyone else think video games has increased their knowledge?
Football video games haven't taught me anything besides the tight end is always open. Koger for Heisman! However, I'm wondering how much real football knowledge helps in mastering football video games.
To anyone playing NCAA, did you bump up Denard's speed? I understand that speeds are generally lower this year and that the fastest QB in the game is probably only a 93 or 94 but if Denard is the fastest guy on our team and C. Brown is a 92, shouldn't D-Rob be at least 93? I'm sick of seeing d-linemen run him down in the backfield, but at the same time I don't want to throw the balance of the game off by adjusting just his speed. Any thoughts?
I've been much more aware of line play and blocking ability since I started reading UFRs. Just this morning I was thinking back to some of the missed lead blocks by Brown last week on Denard's called runs and I got excited to see if Minor being in the game would make a difference when it came to that as well. I never, ever would have considered something like that before.
beat me by 500 points on ncaa 10...
does that tell you anything?
