NCAA 2011 Formation Subs

Submitted by Michigan Shirt on July 15th, 2010 at 9:59 PM

Sorry if anyone is getting upset about all of the NCAA 11 posts, but I have not yet seen this topic. New to NCAA 11 is the option to sub players into what ever position you want for all different formations, this feature existed on the old generation of console games but this is the first year that the next gen console games have this option. I am starting Tate at QB, but I am wondering what are some good formations (and subsequent location) to sub in Denard for trick plays or just to run with him? I am trying some different locations but I have yet to find any trick plays where thte RB/WR has the option to pass. Any ideas from those who have messed around with this feature?

i really wish our playbook had some sort of wildcat in it so that i could utilize denard there, but i haven't really found any playbooks that could be pure denard yet

I like to move Denard around. I have him take snaps at QB, RB, and WR. He's actually pretty effective at running back and he caught a 63 yard TD pass for me. It was all YAC too. He just outran  everyone.

Has anyone else had the glitch where you are about to punt and your punter teleports into the opposing endzone when he gets the snap? It has happened to me about 4 times now, not that it's a bad thing though.

Or any formation that uses the "load option" play is great for Denard. Load Option looks kind of like a Wildcat, but make sure your RB can block really well. Also, Shaw and Denard in the Ace-Big running speed option is great. Both these plays put Denard in a good position to hit a big run. I also like to use 5 wide and go QB blast with him...on occassion.

I'm in year 3 and I line up Gardner in the slot sometimes. Runs those sweep plays really well, and i even tossed a 40 yard streak down the middle to him for a TD . He has something like a 97 acceleration in year 3 so thats ideal for runing those options and other running plays. Gotta get the fastest players on the field!

You could use Alabama's playbook I really enjoy their wildcat formation and they also have a pistol formation plus all of my favorite run plays can be found somewhere in their playbook
