NCAA Football 13 News Post



With all of the hype surrounding Madden NFL 13 and its new Infinity engine, most people are forgetting about the other football game: NCAA Football 13.

Though not as big of a drastic gameplay change as Madden, NCAA does plenty of things right that should keep you entertained.

LOL yeah some of these Heisman people are strange to me. I also looked up Tim Brown's stats from his year and chuckled...politics involved in that one I'd say with him playing for Notre Dame.

#2 If you play 8 minute quarters in order for the ads to not be so intrusive, then you are sacrificing realism in order to 'work around' a defect.d
How is 8 minute quarters unrealistic?

You really needed to see him play. He was dynamic and deserved the award. I say that hating the domers. Looking at numbers out of context without having seen the games he helped them win doesn't tell the whole story.

You have to give credit to NCAA because they have to work on a lot more details than Madden does. Madden has to work with 32 teams, while NCAA has 123 teams to work with. I think that NCAA is much more smooth and fresh, and it plays out better than Madden. I also think it is too much of a rush to add in an infinity engine for both games. I agree that the infinity engine needs more time to develop. NCAA is doing the right thing by waiting until the new engine is more developed, and Madden rushed it into their game. I think the new engine will look more sloppy in Madden this year.

They will let you import the draft class next year.

I agree, the updates we see on the demo have no meaning to us what so ever.

With the demo, I am having significant trouble reading the defense (with regards to the passing game). Apparently in NCAA 13 motioning a receiver to tell whether the defense is in Man or Zone does not work anymore. Several times I would motion to see if CB would move with my WR but am getting different results than the norm that we are all used to seeing (CB moves with the WR = Man, etc.). Because of this my passing game has been non-existent even though I like what EA has done with rehauling the passing game. Since this strategy is no longer valid, can anyone help me how to read defenses? I am sure that there are lots of gamers who never used motion in the first place who thrive in the passing game and any help and tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

What is the distribution of 5-star recruits? Last year almost all 5-star recruits where RBs, QBs, or Athletes.

Well said. That season Brown won it by a big margin, something like 1400 points to 800 over the number 2 guy, Don McPherson, QB Syracuse (yeah I don't know him either). To give his numbers some context, he was on an option oriented team, so 39 catches for 846 yards (over 21 ypc!) is pretty dang impressive. He also had 3 punt return TD's and 3 rushing TD's. The year before he had over 900 receiving yards and 2 KR TD's.

By today's standards the numbers may look low, but offenses were different back then. Compare him to his era and it was pretty clear cut who the dominant player of the year was.
