"Ben Haumiller's got a job for me. Several jobs, actually, but they're all in NCAA Football 12's new career mode, the "Coaching Carousel." Haumiller, the game's producer, explains it all using an offensive coordinator named Owen O'Cain as an example. Who the hell is Owen O'Cain?"

"And Dynasty packs in all of the decisions you face as a head coach of a major program."

Really? Hire and Fire assistants? Lobby for funds to remodel or build a new stadium? Run spring practice? Spring game? Recruit juniors? Specify areas you want a player to improve? (gain weight, lose weight, improve strengths, etc etc)

Dynasty lacks more decisions then it has. Not a complaint, I know it takes time to add new stuff and they added a bunch this year, and it sounds good.. But its a long way from being all encompassing as this guy is trying to claim.

He must be thinking about NCAA 11.

Nice article... I wish there was a more clear answer on how easy/hard moving up/down prestige wise is...

So is possible for 2 User coordinators to play an online dynasty game vs one another, if they are both coaching offense or both coaching defense?

I'm pretty sure they said that in User vs User games both guys will control both sides of the ball and play out all the plays.

That article got me too pumped...

It's decently easy. I did a simulation as Tulsa's OC using a new coach (started at D Prestige), and within a season I had very high job security and got a decent prestige bump. I didn't have a chance to see how quickly that prestige bump would turn into a new job ... I think you'll probably have to stay at a higher prestige level for a little bit of time before you start getting good offers. Guess we'll have to wait and see on that.

I'm 99% sure that you're right. User vs User games will play both sides of the ball.

correct, but can you "coach mode" both sides of the ball vs a USER in OD? Where both users only call the plays and watch via the broadcast cam?

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't remember 2k Sports hyping up Coaching Carousel in College Hoops 2k7 as much as EA has done for NCAA 12. I think the folks at 2k figured that fans expected that feature to be in there in the first place. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited about the addition of coaching carousel, I just wished EA hadn't copied and pasted it from CH2k7 without any major additions like JalenTigh had pointed out.

Also thinking about dropping Ohio State's overall prestige, if possible.
Why? They were THE Ohio State University before that loser Tressel got there and will continue to be THE Ohio State University after him and be fine in the long haul. I don't get why people think their prestige should drop. And I'm by no means an OSU apologist. I'm enjoying all of this turmoil they are going to and going to go through, but they are still an elite program.

Well think about it. Its been on a wishlist for EA NCAA games for quite a while, everyone who buys the NCAA game by EA have come to expect it not in the game. So what do you do when you introduce something consumers havent seen in your game? you advertise(hype).

Don't compare this first attempt by the NCAA team with CH2k7 or CH2k8(which was the best by a NCAA title) compare it with CH2k4 which was the first implementation of a CC which "only" had a job search feature. Its was fresh but nothing special when you look back, EA has done way more on their first attempt than 2k did on theirs.

They are elite, but they will lose respect in the NCAA . I think a drop to a 4-star or 5-star program is warranted, and don't be surprised if you see top recruits shy away from Ohio State, which is what ultimately keeps a college dynasty going.
The sanctions are the only thing that would keep recruits away, OSU doesn't really lose respect so long as it's an elite program.

And do you honestly think the players knew before hand that they new they could sell their memorabilia at a small tattoo shop in Columbus? If you think that what's happening at OSU is an isolated incident, you're naive.

I also find it funny that Pryor decided to go to a team meeting in one of his many cars, knowing he's being investigated for receiving improper benefits.
I think everyone knows how dumb Pryor is at this point, but I think he's failed to realized it himself. Life's about to about give him a right hook to the face, maybe then he'll figure it out.

Anyway He needs to removed from the team, he's nothing but a detriment at this point. I know He'll be removed from any roster I use in NCAA 12.

So the incentives and goals are only in CC, not Dynasty? Or is Dynasty just like CC except you're always the HC?

I didn't realize they were separate game modes, I always thought the Carousel feature was an expansion to the Dynasty mode.

they are not different modes. CC is a part of Dynasty(online and offline).
when you start dynasty, you can choose to be an OC, DC, or you can choose to play like you normally did before and play as the Head Coach.

you can turn off coaching contracts, which allows you to never be fired(I assume it means you will not have goals to achieve either). I'm not sure if that also makes it so the CPU coaches to not be fired/hired or retire though.
