    Re: NCAA 08

    Tech is absolutely horrible on the PS3. I've been playing online with them and getting crushed. On my old PS2, I have played head to head with friends (not online) who were playing with Top 5 teams and I've beaten them badly with Tech. Apparently, the online play is a bit tougher... I decided to switch over and use Boise State (ranked #23 on NCAA 08) just to see if it was me or if I was getting killed because of the poor ranking given Tech. Well, I beat one of the top-rated online players who was using Michigan -- 50-23. That's the first time I've used a team other than Tech since I started playing on the old PS1...

    I showered immediately afterward, btw.

    You know what royally sucks? I find it fun to get all the 5 star recruits and when I look at who's interested, I have like 15 five star players but 8 or 9 of them are guards or tackles. Makes me mad because there are so many great o-linemen you can't help but to sign a couple a year, which means you have like 20 o-linemen on your team. haha

    Yep. My o-line's were always 4 deep at each spot in NCAA. And, because I was an 80 percent run guy with a two RB system, I was guaranteed to lose any junior or rs soph starters to the draft....every year. There ARE a lot of them in the game, but I needed them every year!

    Re: NCAA 08

    The main thing that I do not like about 08 is that Tech's stadium is not even close to the Joe. It looks like it seats about 80,000. I also was invited to replace Kansas after season 2 and a NC. I actually declined for some reason. I'll wait for another offer such as the SEC so that I can spank them every year.

    My team replaced Baylor in the BigXII South. I share your disappointment with 08. I don't know what it's like on PS2, but on my 360 you can't play with IAA teams. You can't edit a players year in school (always helpful when trying to include a recent recruiting class). IMO, the recruiting is FAR too involved. On my current dynasty, I haven't recruited at all...just simmed everything.

    I actually like the recruiting. I keep waiting for my team to be good enough to sim all the games and just do the recruiting. I have over a dozen 5 star recruits and over twenty 4 star recruits in in my freshman and sophomore classes. I am hoping that after this season, I can put the games in autopilot without worrying about losing. The flag pattern from the slot is virtually unstoppable in the spread formation. I put the running back on a fly pattern just in case the computer runs a side-line zone with safety help over the top.

    The recruiting has grown on me but is still time consuming. I'd rather play than recruit all day.

    Sorry take a turn on this thread . . . bought the PS2 version of 2K8 Hoops . . . they got Tech's old uniforms, but the NEW Karl Malone Court is included.

    Not a gamer, but a bought a copy for the grandson since I spent four hours shooting the OLD floor for them from all their required angles back in February.

    Kinda blew me away the Malone floor was there (since it was just completed Oct. 15).

    On the PS2, I play against all the top 10 teams I play and sim the rest just so I can get to recruiting!

    Re: NCAA 08

    I much, much, MUCH prefer the older way of recruiting, from the PS2 version. The new way is just ridiculously involved. Don't fix it if it ain't broke!

    I have both versions. I put the 360 version in when I have guests over that want to play a pick up game, but I stick to the PS2 for my Franchise fix (not to mention its accurate JAS model).

    Dump this stupid stuff, EA!
