Struck Down By the Video Game Gods

POST #    1301

Hmm, is there something about adding a last second field goal in NCAA 2005 that is against the rules? You would think not. But if you're already up 52-10, with four seconds to go in your version of NCAA 2005, you might not want to kick that figgie. I would normally say that I didn't deserve to have the game freeze on me, but I was thumping my opponent. Since Michigan is rather "eh" this year, I've got to live vicariously through my game. I was close to setting the single game rushing record for Michigan and kept my first team in. Padding stats to remain the Heisman favorite. All for naught.

I was so close to breaking Ron Johnson's single game rushing record of 348 yards and already broke Tshimanga Biakabutuka's 317 yard record. Again, all for naught. Oh that poor Penn State defense - shifting one way as I run the other. Fools! All for naught. Why was I running up the score? Because their damn offense kicked a field goal on me. And they returned an interception for a TD (that was actually my fault). In all fairness, PSU was ranked #10, so it's not like I was beating up a bad team. That said, I definitely need to increase the level of difficulty for next season.

Mental note for when I play that game again, run, run, run. I'm so going for that record.

Tien, do you have trouble passing in that game? I can run all over teams but can't seem to throw the ball worth a damn.

i'm generally not passing that much in ncaa, but i haven't had too many problems. the computer has a much more difficult time of it, but i can usually throw for 125+ yards with ease. then again, i really don't run too many plays.

i'll see how my passing holds up next season on a new level and once my actual recruits start playing.

you like ncaa over madden?

well, i like college football more than pro. it's just hard to find time to play both. i'll probably give madden a good breaking in soon though. my friend was on his way to beating me (but with a far better team), so i know i need practice.
