Designer Larry Richart breaks down the No Huddle Offense in NCAA Football 11.

Quote:
"Hey there NCAA fans, we're back again with some more gameplay info for NCAA Football 11. We've had some very positive feedback from the demo as well as at E3 and can't wait for the game to hit the shelves in a few weeks. It's been a crazy world in college football as Nebraska and Colorado have left the Big 12 for the Big 10 and Pac-10 respectively. Now after all the dust has settled it looks like the Big 12 will remain intact for the most part and remain a strong conference with 10 teams. Despite these losses, the current Big 12 Conference will still have some of the most exciting offenses in the college game today. Some of that success can be directly attributed to the use of the No Huddle Offense. Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Baylor, and Iowa State all utilize the No Huddle offense and have put up huge offensive numbers over the past few seasons."

LOL...i luv ncaa don't get me wrong, but if players are looking to the sideline, wouldn't it make sense to have a coach on the sideline calling plays?

Here's a list of things that I think could make this better.

1. There needs to be a setting to switch Triangle/Y from huddling to not huddling for teams that don't huddle more often than they do.

2. They also need the "looking to the sidelines" to occur for every audible, not just formation audibles.

3. They need to line up a tad slower. Even the most aggressive no-huddle teams don't sprint when they're lining up. It especially doesn't make sense that they line up before the call if it's not pre-determined. Here's what I'd suggest. 2 line-up speeds. One regular one that is moderate with players jogging downfield as you select the play and line up after the call. The second would be like in past years where they sprint to the line with a pre-defined play and then a second button press would activate the full playbook and they'd "look to the sidelines."

These three things would vastly improve what is currently in place and would balance it out quite a bit.

Uhh, if there are only 2 types of tempos for No Huddle, than Michigan should be aggressive, if West Virginia is regular. I rarely see WVU hurry it up when I watch their games. Under RR they used to, but not anymore. However, Michigan seems to run a few different tempos. But, never use the full play clock. I normally seem Michigan use their fastest tempo and the medium tempo, with some of their slower tempo mixed in. They run the fastest tempo and medium tempo about the same amount of plays, but usually run alittle more of their fastest tempo.

Don't no huddle teams look to the sideline on almost every play, regardless of if they're calling an audible or not?

It's my understanding that you will only get that animation when calling an audible. Is that realistic? VT is the furthest thing from a no huddle team, so I don't know.

1 step at a time.... At least we got the look to sidelines...

Well since the CPU never makes formation audibles, I guess they won't be looking to the sideline?

The no huddle was really fast in the demo, I hope they have the CPU use the look to the sidelines animations.

Maybe they keep looking to the sidelines wondering WTF are the coaches?????

will agree with you here. i haven't seen them look yet at this stage. didn't realize you had to audible to an entire new formation.

It depends on the team. Auburn is very aggressive in their no-huddle but it varies game to game how much they look to the sidelines. I believe they operate on a pre-determined play basis and then change when necessary which leads to "looking at the sidelines." But in 2008 when we had Tony Franklin here *shudder* it was just about every play where they'd look to the sidelines.

No; that's not what I mean by "formation audible". It's when you use the audibles out of the current formation by pressing square/X and then flipping the right stick in a direction. I think I might have heard them also called "quick audibles" at some point but I'm not sure.

The crowd noise is messing with the QB.

Anyone else think the bit about the Big 12 is a hint for something?
