Operation Sports - Press Row Podcast: Episode 22 - NCAA Ultimate Team Mode Interview


It’s Episode 22 of the Press Row Podcast, a special Press Row One-on-One with NCAA Football 14 producer Ben Haumiller (@benhaumiller) and host Richard Grisham (@richgrisham) dedicated to the all-new NCAA Ultimate Team Mode – also known as “the mode they said couldn’t be done.” We talk all about how Ultimate Team came about for a college game, the different ways that players are being incorporated into the mode, and all the details about how the game is structured and played. In other words, everything you ever wanted to know about Ultimate Team but were afraid to ask.

This is the second of a series of shows we’ll do with Ben as NCAA Football 14 information comes out, so let us know what you think and send us some questions and thoughts you’d like us to ask Ben in the future.

Have the rights to nflpa, will have 2500 players, their cards will show them from different years of their college career. All 126 teams will be represented.

2013 draft class will also be included.

Former and current players will be in the game, will be able to play as both Al and Nick Toon, went out to get some players like Al Toon that you wouldn't expect.

Players will wear their college unis in their card pics, but you can have guys from the nfl on the same team representing the same college they went to. Peyton Manning, Jason Witten,Arian Foster, C Patterson all in their Tennessee orange by choosing their uniform as your Home or Away uniform.

Solo Challenges and Season Mode Online similar to FIFA Ultimate Team. 10 game season with Playoffs that determine if you level up or stay at same level or drop down.

For those who are new to ultimate team, there will be a starter pack, fills roster. In the demo, there will be some boosts for Ultimate Team to give incentive for people to play it.

Will be tied to the Skills Trainer. I.E. if you complete the ball hawk tutorial you get Charles Woodson card, screen play-Aaron Hernandez card.

Heisman Hopefuls- Barkley, Doug Flutie

Players will have different cards for different years. Tyrann Mathieu only has one card for his one year at LSU. Eddie Lacy 1st rd vs Regular Lacy card.

Current plan with retro cards is for most former players from the 90s and forward. There are players from 60s, 70s, 80s too. Didn't want to go too far back with majority of cards to where most people don't know who these players are.

Playbooks, uniforms, stadiums, not coaches though. Weren't able to get scans for coaches, but may in the future.

55 active player roster with all positions including special teams

You don't have to spend money to play it or even have a decent team

This actually sounds pretty cool.

I wonder what players some of the smaller teams, like Charlotte, Old Dominion, or UTSA will have?

Also, I wonder if any players from the FCS (Like Flacco) will be available.

I will play this as long as you dont have to pay.. but I wont pay for players...

a couple of questions I have though...
You said the players are in their college uniforms, does that mean they are in the uniforms that they wore in college? for example, antwaan randle el wearing the black indiana helmet while peyton manning wears his tennessee gear? Or do you just get a team uniform in a pack like (I think) madden did.

Also, do the players wear the gear that they wore in their day? I'm not a gear junkie, but something about seeing 90s players in a revo helmet takes away from the "specialness" of it.

Ultimate Team is fun yeah but the idea of seeing Tom Brady into an Ohio State uniform, Peyton Manning as a Longhorn ... ugh ...

Needless to say, these players wont be available outside of UT.
