  • NCAA football 11

    I decided this year to get myself a copy of ncaa football 11 and see what the all fuss was about. I also want to be able to import a proper draft class into madden 11! Im struggling to settle on a college team , right now im on the colorado state rams (just because they called the rams).

    Who do you follow and why?

    Who should i stick with??....

    Re: NCAA football 11

    I don't know much about the game nor do I intend to go very in depth with it. I just play with a few buddies of mine and learn from that. It's just something I bought to play an updated football game (get used to the controls for Madden 11).

    Since we drafted Bradford, I've been playing with Oklahoma.

    What kind of offense do you want to run? Are you looking for more of a pro-style team?

        i dont mind what kind of offense really. most of the playbooks are pretty much the same anyway. primarily i like to throw the ball but i also like having a strong run game, and a few trick plays thrown in!

        im more interested in dynasty mode, building a team, recruiting good prospecs etc. i dont wanna jus use crimson tide or ohio state because they're already at the top.

        i wouldnt mind stickin with colorado state, but can you improve them to the stage that alabama are at, and compete for major trophies etc?

          I hear you. Online I don't think you can do anything about using the Rams versus a highly ranked team like Florida. You may like using Boise State or the Oregon Ducks for that.

          Dynasty, I believe you'd be able to improve them but I could be wrong.

            I play with Florida or West Virginia typically as i like to have a stout defense and a mobile QB that can scramble and run the option as well as throw often. I use Mizzous playbook since they are my favorite team. Keep in mind i am basing all this off NCAA 10 but hope Gabbert will be much improved this year and i can use Mizzou full time. I am hoping for a ten win season out of my boys this year!!

              yes you can..i started off with Fresno State which are a 3 star prestige school and after three undefeated years i was one of the top schools in the country..eventually as you get better you're offered to go to better conferences for example i was offered to go into Pac 10 which gives you a better chance at the BCS bowl game..either way if you go undefeated with which ever team you usually make the top 15 depending on your strength of schedule..games addicting, I recommend campus legend too..i got a kick out
              of that mode..btw its more funner starting off with low prestige schools because you get the satisfaction of making that school better

                    Receiving an invite to another conference has been in the game before; I remember my Mountaineers being invited at the end of the season after bowl games. I hear it's not available in online dynasty mode though.

                    I tried '11 this year. It's pretty solid, but finding the right mix of sliders is important. I rented the game and had to send it back to Blockbuster this afternoon, but earlier today I played a game against Syracuse that I thought for sure the game AI wanted to win. Two late game touchdowns and a recovered onside kick but I was able to hold them off.

                      Anybody 'round these parts play NCAA 2005? I've bought it for the first time and should get it around Monday. I've been playing Madden for years so what difference should I be expecting with regard to NCAA 2005 and college football in general.

                      NCAA gets serious about school -- and some will pay

                      Tell Dennis your opinion!


                      Might as well beat the NCAA to publicly outing these major-college football programs.


                      Mack Brown's record at Texas: 70 wins, 19 losses, 27 percent graduation rate. (Getty Images)
                      Minnesota. Houston. Texas. Utah.

                      The Association would have us believe all of the above are about to be put on double-secret probation. Or something close to it. The NCAA basically said so this week when it got to the heart of the matter of academic performance. Fall below a 50 percent graduation rate, and programs could lose scholarships, postseason berths and, worst case, NCAA membership.

                      How's that feel, Flubbed Four? Embarrassed enough? All four of those programs graduated no more than 40 percent of their players -- oops, sorry, student-athletes -- according the latest grad rates. The NCAA already has said 30 percent of I-A falls below its new Academic Performance Rate (APR) standard that approximates those current NCAA grad rates.

                      Those four might or might not be in that group when warnings are issued sometime soon, but their recent track record isn't good. And there will be more.

                      Later this month or early February, the NCAA will start sending out letters to schools that fall below the APR cut line of 925 (approximately 50 percent). By 2006, offenders could start losing scholarships (up to 10 percent in each sport).

                      Then a postseason ban. Imagine Texas being told it can't go bowling.

                      The next punishment stage is essentially a new version of the NCAA's death penalty -- loss of membership.

                      "We're talking about rather strong penalties here," NCAA president Myles Brand said, adding, "We're talking about the level of major infraction penalties."

                      And it might just work. For once, the NCAA has some legislation with teeth -- or at least the red-cheek factor. If nothing else, the "offenders" will be chagrined. The NCAA plans a very public process in notifying and penalizing schools that fall below 925.

                      The idea being: Imagine Texas letting things slip to a postseason ban. Supposedly, it won't.

                      Schools' grad rates will be tracked term-by-term, year-by-year instead of the antiquated federally mandated six-year window, which was akin to looking at a distant star. Sometimes many coaches, presidents and athletic directors ago.

                      The APR is more accurate in that it takes into account transfers going in and out of the program who leave in good academic standing.

                      But for now, the old antiquated system is all we have to go on, which is why the four schools were selected for this mini-public flogging. According to the NCAA, 27 percent of the Texas freshman football players entering school in 1997-98...
