Pursuit of Perfection 10 breaks down the team ratings in NCAA Football 11.

Quote:
"EA Sports’ yearly release in their NCAA Football video game franchise is due to hit on Tuesday, July 13th; in preparation for that, I have gone through the ratings for all of the teams included in this year’s game to run some data analysis. The goal of this research is to provide some data surrounding how the EA Sports team has decided to rate each school’s team in the game, and how that affects potential conferences to use in the game’s multiplayer Online Dynasty mode."

A pretty good article from what I've seen from just skimming. A Big East only online dynasty looks pretty fun..

Lewis is the man for Pittsburgh right now. Sadly Jonathan "Larry Fitzgerald Jr." Baldwin will be leaving soon.Always fun to use a sneaky Big East school in an OD with friends when most will load up on Big Ten schools.

This is pretty cool break down, at first I thought it was an going to explain the reasoning behind hind the strange ratings, i.e Ohio state, Iowa, Nebraska and several others, having higher offensive ratings than defensive. Also, why in the world does that Pac-10 have a higher defensive average than the Big-10, is that weird to anyone else?

This is a good article. Breaks it down nicely.

Thank you for posting this on the front page, Steve. I greatly appreciate that the information will be able to serve a wide group of people with this promotion now.

@dan_457: Sorry if the title of the article or the "preamble" discussion were confusing; I have no insight as to how the EA Sports team put together their ratings for this year's game, and I'm still thinking that there might be changes between the E3 build and the retail release. I don't think Alabama will be keeping their 99/99/99 ratings because I don't think we've seen an EA Sports game where a non-All Star team has had perfect ratings across the board.

Did seem weird that the Pac-10 had better defensive ratings than the Big Ten as well; ah well.

It's cool, I wasn't disappointed or anything, actually I was pleasantly surprised, I hadn't actually seen a break down like that before, it's really good info.

@dan_457: I'm glad that you liked it even though it wasn't what you expected haha.

Part of the impetus for doing that research was that I couldn't remember seeing anywhere that had broken down the conferences like that. And, since I'm a bit new to the college football game, I wanted to figure out for myself who belonged to some of the smaller conferences. A day of on-and-off work later, and we have that article with all of its images and analysis.

According to those who asked the NCAA 11 guys at E3, the game at E3 was the retail build. Thus...Alabama will be the mythical creature of 99/99/99 unless they were leading us on.

Huh; hadn't heard that. I guess it would be a manner of compensation to Alabama for having four match-ups in the NCAA Football 11 demo and none of them including the National Champions. If Alabama is really supposed to be so good this year, hard to argue.

Should be interesting; this will be something I ask those who have the game once the embargo is lifted on Friday morning.
