    Second Tuesday of July.

    There were like three video game stores in Ohio that would sell the game a week early every year. I have the utmost respect for those establishments.

    For me, nothing will ever compare to NCAA 2004's Texas Longhorns. Putting RS Freshman Vince Young at QB with Cedric Benson and Roy Williams. Derrick Johnson and Nate Vasher on defense :lovelove:

    NCAA 07 was shitty, when they jumped to 360. The 3 or 4 games right before it were money

    I used to mail my PS2 memory card to some dude in Gig Harbor, WA to get the rosters every year.

    Sad that it's gone but lets be real here the game hadn't been the same since the jump to 360/PS3. 2002-2004 were the glory years for this franchise.

    I still have 06 on my modded original Xbox with my beastly dynasty using the ULM Warhawks. Something I always wanted in that game was the ability to build new facilities. Would have called the new stadium "The House that Dawson Built" because I won a Heisman with ULM's RB Calvin Dawson right off the bat.

    You're right about the rough transition from Xbox/PS2 to 360/PS3 though. I didn't buy another NCAA game until 13. Have 14 now and really hoping it ends up in X1's backwards compatible catalog.

    agreed. they stripped a lot of the good things, such as creating your own playbook and formation subs and other things, and added just some straight up shitty features, such as your routes wiggling when it was loud

    Wasn't about how good the game was it was the first time you could start gearing up for the upcoming season. Get those rosters updated and kill time until you could watch the real thing.

    My soph year of college (02-03) my roommate and I played through a solid 45 years of a franchise. Weeknights were spent getting drunk and franchising instead of homework. Having to cut 99 SR QB's off the roster instead of cutting the 95 SO. Not to mention how good the Tiger Woods game was at that time. A true golden age of sports gaming.

    Also back in the day Middle Tennessee State was fucking unstoppable after about 10 years of a franchise. 100% chance of them becoming a dominant program every single time.

    one time my 2 college roommates and I played a Texas A&M dynasty together (when they had Von Miller)

    we all played D line and our 3 players lead CFB in sacks. Also on offense, we would be QB, RB, FB. My roommate would play as the FB, some guy named Graybill. He had 8 times as many pancakes during the season as any other player at any other position.

    amazing

    Steve Championship and I would always play against one of our buddies in his mom's basement. I was probably like 17 at the time.

    After the 2002 season I changed the rosters a little bit because OSU was criminally underrated. Our best DB Chris Gamble was like 80 speed so I bumped him up to 94 or something. Well I played against our one buddy (OSU vs OSU) and my memory card was in. I moved Gamble to WR as well (because he played both ways) and on the last play of the game Gamble outran CB Dustin Fox (the fastest player on the team) for the game-winning TD as time expired.

    My buddy was irate when he checked the rosters and saw that I had bumped Gamble's speed -- because there's no way he should have been able to outrun Fox. He then kicked me out of his house. About an hour later he drove to my mom's house and gave me my baseball hat and memory card that I had left behind. He apparently looked more closely the rosters and realized that Gamble had the speed bump for his team as well.....so what I had done wasn't totally unfair.

    He then apologized for kicking me out of his house. Steve Championship and I still make fun of him for this today.

    Great story, pelikun!

    The federal court overseeing the NCAA likenesses lawsuit has a hearing this Thursday July 16, 2015 to approve the final settlement in the EA Sports lawsuit. The settlement set up a $60 million fund, with the NCAA contributing $20 million. There were 93,000 athletes eligible to participate in the settlement, but only 16,200 mailed claim forms.

    Had it actually been released today, this thread would already be filled with the following complaints:

    1. How inaccurate the EA rosters and rankings were
    2. How certain elements of shitty gameplay from previous versions still hadn't been fixed
    3. Why were mascot games still in the game, but 85 man rosters weren't
    4. How the "new features" were shitty, dumb, or both
    5. How its too easy to cheese in gameplay
    6. Recruiting is too complicated
    7. Recruiting is too easy
    8. Road to glory is dumb
    9. EA didn't include all the new equipment styles or jersey combos
    10. Why is Player X black? Why does Player Y have dreads???

    and yet next year we'd be lining up to buy it because we love it

    I never played online so I didn't worry about cheesing.

    They always blew the player mode though. It wasn't interactive at all. They really should have gone more in depth than adding high school playoffs

    Around '02 you could fuck people's world up with the option. Use a fast ass QB/WR, run a 1 back/2 TE set, use the hurry up feature, and just constantly flip which way you were gonna go with it.

    That shit was impossible to stop unless the other guy blitzed both safeties, at which point you stayed in that set and threw to the TE running a seam route.
