Exactly, because there were no dreads in last years game. They announced that they will be in this years game, though (thats why people are so mad that Denard wont have them), so it will be an option.

Might have something to do with the Keller lawsuit. Adding Denard's dreads kinda hurts their argument that they aren't creating likenesses, as silly as that argument is anyway.

He won't have dreads in the real game either, his facemask/helmet is also incorrect, and for some reason Michigan has white shoes. The first two are normal, as Tim Tebow was always skewed - along with many other players. But the white shoes? Why?

Multiple issues on my end: Instead of editing my post, i accidently posted a new one. Whoops. Also, there's another gameplay video out where there's more UofM, and they're away at ND with white shoes. But I forgot that you can choose whatever shoe setup before the game, and that's what they did so it's a non-issue.

Just go to edit player and give him dreads. It will be the first thing I do when I get the game. Glad to see diving catches and that the zone defense actually works. In '11 everybody played zone Michigan style, not covering anybody.

Other players in the video have dreads, so I would assume dreads are going to be a hairstyle option.  Also agree with what was mentioned above, still have a few months before the release, so that'll give cyber denard time to grow his hair out and have dreads by the release date.

I love NCAA Football as much as the next guy but these videos aren't doing it for me.  NCAA needs to take some lessons from NHL 11 -- incredible game.

calm down, it was a work in progress bar on there so they probably haven't got to all small details yet. there were a few things that they needed to fix. if you look at the osu-michigan screen shots, jt floyd has them but in th video he doesn't

Before people panic, realize that these are all things that will most likely be easily changed in under 10 seconds.  They kind of got sued for having players' likenesses on there.

If EA fucks it up, the modders will fix it. Don't worry :) 

Also got to agree that shying away from putting authentic likenesses, whether due to lawsuit or whatever, is pretty asinine.

You need to slow down the video to 1/2000 speed. The dreads are the dark blur about 4/5ths of the way up behind the blue and yellow blur.

When you slow it down you'll also note the name on his jersey about 4 yards back trying to reattach itself.
