yep, Cousins is my starter as well with Henne as the backup. Cousins ended up getting injured against Miami. Now Henne is my starter with Ponder as the backup. At least Bo Jackson is a beast even though my line is a sieve.
NCAA 14 open thread
True. I was actually playing around in the Nike skills and unlocked Collin Kapernick. Now I just run the read option with C.K. and Bo jackson. My offense is alot better but my defense still needs some talent.
Completely agree. My secondary is getting torched right now. I have a bunch of scrubs in at CB and and mike. I don't give up big plays, but teams are able to drive right down the field with 8 yard passes at a time.
Heisman difficulty with everything else default (50 for sliders, AI). And game speed as fast as possible and its still a touch too easy. Has anyone played around with the sliders and have levels that they like in terms of difficulty and reality?
Personally, I think this is the best one yet. As it should be. Graphics are better. I haven't had a 90 inch vertical from an eight foot LB yet.
Seven Nation Army and pre game stuff is more fine tuned. I've been impressed thus far.
Anybody else get the Big Ten ultimate team pack thingy for preordering from best buy? I can't figure out how to redeem my code. I have an Xbox. Little help?
You have to download the code within the game not from the xbox dashboard. Load up the game, scroll to the right, hit settings and then redeem code.
Yeah, I figured it out right after I posted. The directions that they sent with the code are so wrong it's not funny.
How do I download rosters from other users?
Played my first online game last night. Got beat. It was a little laggy though so every time I'd go after the ball as a db the game wouldn't react in real time.
Still an awesome game and the first one I've gotten since 2009.
the demo, but I have reading on a couple other sites about how defense (run defense and zone passing defense in particular) is severly lacking regardless of sliders or difficulty being used. That was the one aspect of the demo I didn't like, the run game seemed to be completely overpowered on both sides. Even on Heisman I was easily getting 5+ yards a pop against Alabama's D using VT on Heisman. Many aspects of the demo felt like an improvement, but I think I will wait and see what more people have to say about defense in the game, and if EA balances things more with tuners/patches. Can't really enjoy the game if every game turns into a scoring fest, and good to great defenses don't show any teeth regardless of slider or difficulty adjustments.
At this point I have been dissapointed too many times by NCAA Football this gen,(last year was the first year I waited for a price drop before buying),to rush out and buy it right at release. It just seems like EA works in extremes, they finally improve the poor run blocking logic and option game, but may have gone overboard and made them overpowered.
Would you recommend buying the game?
I would. I wasn't too enthusiastic about it at first, and I was reluctant to trade in '13. But after trying out Ultimate team and Franchise mode, I'm sold. It's a solid game.
Plus, those physics look pretty good.
This is offtopic somewhat because i can't strt a thread but I was just wondering how you and your buddies set up your OD? Curious what is the best way for a long term one to start in terms of starting team stars, coordinator vs head coach, users in same conference vs different conference, if in different conferences do you play user games, do you stay with same program or bounce around jobs, and if you bounce jobs do you stay in same conference as other users? My buddies and I are starting one and I was just curious what the best would be for a good, long term dynasty
