Michigan NCAA Football '09 Playbook

Submitted by MaizeNBlueJ on July 10th, 2008 at 2:01 PM

EA just posted all the playbooks from NCAA Football 09 online. Michigan's is located here.

 I also put this as a reply to the other thread, but wanted to make sure it didn't go unnoticed, since that topic is a little on the old side.

I bet whenever you play “Circus” someone runs out of bounds in the opposing team’s red zone instead of PITCHING IT TO BREASTON… Sorry, had a bad flashback there.

I haven't played NCAA in a few years--does anyone know if the actual zone read is incorporated? There's a similar looking play in there called the "QB Choice", but does that include leaving the backside DE unblocked and reading him, as a in a true zone read? The blocking assignments in the playbook don't seem to indicate that, or any zone blocking for that matter. All the run blocking seems to be either straight ahead or pulling guards.

I believe in '08 the zone read is blocked correctly, at least as to the DE you're referencing. That said, I've found different reads that make more sense in the game, so I haven't focused on the DE in awhile.
