I don't think they changed Les at all actually

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
A few weeks ago, I think you made a comment, along with other people, on how people were still playing NCAA 2006 to this very day. After this, I frantically looked everywhere for my old Xbox and NCAA 2006 game, to no avail.
That was a damn good game, I miss it.
You can buy a used copy for a cent.
Overall Offense Defense
That would seem to make more sense.
It looks like the site changed it to this now. However, that still makes no sense -- how would a Michigan offense of 94 and defense of 91 add up to an overall of 97?
EA has historically been pretty bad at aggregating player ratings (or, at the very least, the aggregated rating isn't a simple average). But I think part of the reason for this is that a team's aggregate strength isn't necessarily just the average of their offense and defense. For instance, EA might rate Michigan's offense as better than 94/100 of the other offenses in the NCAA and their defense better than 91/100 of the defenses. But since it's hard to have both a good offense and a good defense, this might make their team better than 97/100 of the teams in the NCAA.
Obviously some other factors go into these numbers, but I think this is the general idea.
when i go to the link it says overall, offense, special teams. No defense rating is listed when i look at it
That makes no sense to show there, but it's what it is. It also must mean that Michigan has a 98 or 99 defense if we have an overall of 97 with a 94 offense and 91 ST.
the overall rating can be higher if both your offense and defense are top rated for each. I think both our O and D are in the 6.
Are they gonna actually incorporate neutral site games this year ? In the game last year I played a season with Oregon and had to play the first game at LSU NOT cowboy stadium
Hope so. Not looking forward to our season starting in Alabama on the game.
If you can't get into college go to State.
2004 was the best...I played that non stop...League Daddy was the shit.
Life's a game of Inches
I have a soft spot for '07. Your receivers could actually burn a corner if he had the speed, and playing with option teams is SO much fun. Pat White was an absolute beast. I could play with WVU or Michigan all day

Terrible. I will not buy NCAA this year, for the first time in a while. I will take a long hard look at Madden though. I think they have a new physics engine this year, but I don't think they have fantasy draft, which kinda sucks.
Here are individual player ratings for Michigan's offense. I think Denard's ratings got worse... No dreads either.
The split M logo has finally been replaced. At least ea sports "gets it" in regards to the current marketing image that the AD wants to trot out there.

They don't have hemmingway's new number either.
First, NCAA 12 was an excellent game that incorporated a lot of new features like Coaching Carousel and Conference Changes. The issue was the gameplay which after reading reviews of the demo sounds like the gameplay is improved, if not amazing.
Second, don't buy the game on release. Wait two weeks for truly dedicated individuals to re-do their rosters and adjust likenessess (Denard w/dreads), ratings, names, etc. and also for a decent slider set to emerge.
EDIT: I realize "excellent" may be a bit of a leap. It wasn't excellent, but it was good outside of the super-jumping LBs and psychic DBs, and the problems running screens, options, or play action. Okay, fine, the gameplay was bad. But, COACHING CAROUSEL. CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT. I loved that ish.
I'm gonna chalk Texas as a 99 overall to be a typo because that is IMPOSSILBE. I watched seval of their games and Ash will be no higher than an 86. No chance they have a 99 OFFENSE.
"Urban Meyer has really put a strong wall of recruitment around the state of Ohio. No leaks anywhere." -Nobody
THIS IS MICHIGAN
Everytime I buy this game I get really excited at first. Then I realize that Denard always gets hurt and it is the same game every year. They barely change anything.
My biggest issue w/this game is the amount of time they force you to spend on recruiting. In the old ones, you would just put recruiting points on players. Now you have to work on each player individually and each one take a few each week and it's way too much of a time committment/
I used to love recruiting but now if im playing several seasons I hate it. 30 minutes every week if you really want to get dialed in. Just give me an end of the year only recruiting option so it doesnt take 17 hours to play a season.
With Michael Vick and Denard, EA made it impossible to break away and run.
I haven't bought either game since the 2007 versions.
Virginia Tech 99 D. :o
Been in NCAA hibernation since 06, so I might get this one. Hear a lot of complaints about gameplay though, "rocket catching", inaccurate defensive play, et cetera
Hit me up for a game or dynasty. Gamertag: Ih8ohiost8
Relax and think about brunette girls.
These ratings are a joke. I wont make a comment about Michigans, but LSU with 99 offense? MSU with a better offensive rating than their defensive rating? According to player ratings, MSU's best player is the kicker, and William Gholston isn't even in the top 10. I really hope these are still a work in progress
The only time I ever really liked Madden and NCAA was drafting and recruiting. I ended up always getting pissed off instead as things always seemed to be too random for me.
Michigan starts at 8:06 of video.
Not a fan of Denard only getting 90 ACC, oh well easy fix
