    I. BLACK & WHITE GLOVES
    -----------------------
    
       Anybody notice you CAN NOT select Black & White gloves in the 
    Equipment section. An apparent GLTICH, EA overlooked! Well those Of you 
    who have FAVORITE PLAYERS and are real sticklers for their appearance 
    (like me) can use this trick to have SOME particular players use Blk & 
    Wht gloves.
    
    1. EXAMPLE: Say you have a FAVORITE player, who's a sophomore and you 
    got another player on the team (who plays the SAME POSITION) who's a 
    sophomore too. Your Fav has Black gloves (or NO gloves at all), and the 
    other sophomore has Blk & Wht gloves. Well here's what you do... copy 
    the guy with the Blk & Wht gloves stats, looks and other info on a 
    separate sheet of paper. Then transfer all the data of your favorite 
    player to the athlete with the rare gloves.
    
    2. Once you've done this, transfer the information you copied on the 
    sheet of paper to your original favorite player! Now your star player 
    has a sweet set of gloves. WARNING: Under NO circumstances should you 
    tamper with the gloves. If you try and switch them in any scenario, you 
    CANNOT get them back, unless you reload your previous SAVE. By the way, 
    once all the data is transferred DO NOT forget to save it to your 
    memory card.
    
    
    
    II.  TIP: Created Players
    -------------------------
    
       This same trick can be used to make created characters (technically 
    speaking) "permanent"! If you create a player, his name will show up in 
    the DELETE section. Alot of created players in my game saves are 
    "permanent", they are in the Roster, but they won't show up on the 
    DELETE MENU! The player you swapped them with will appear in the 
    deleted menu instead.
    
    
    
    III. F.Y.I: Roster GLITCHES
    ---------------------------
    
       WARNING: The limit of created players in the game is "34". To exceed 
    the limit will cause the Depth Chart & Roster to GLITCH. Now this part 
    is vital: When your created roster is at "34" and you want to add new 
    players, you MUST DELETE atleast "18" players before creating any new 
    ones. Deleting any amount below "18" means you roster will still suffer 
    the same GLITCH as mentioned above! Once the "18" are deleted you can 
    create new ones or re-create those you wanted to keep. If your roster 
    is at "33" or less you can still add a player or detract players... 
    without having to delete "18" of them. To avoid any problems, I'd 
    suggest keeping your Roster at atleast "33" or less.
    
    
    
    IV.  Realistic Slider Settings
    ------------------------------
    
    VARSITY & ALL AMERICAN
    ++++++++++++++++++++++
    
       These sliders compliment each other, and are practically "UNIVERSAL." 
    Meaning that the realistic effect is generally the same in EA's 
    NCAA Football 2002, as well as the MADDEN SERIES: 2001 & 2002. All 
    sliders from FAR Left, so +10 is middle, +20 is max. PLENTY THANKS & 
    MADD PROPS to STUN-GUN for the "Realistic" Slider Settings! The Penalty 
    Settings were desgined by an anonomyous gamer on the NCAA Football 2002 
    Message Board & slightly tweaked by me. Lastly, a final shoutout to  
    Absolute Himself, for the Heisman Slider Settings!

    V. NCAA Football Official Team Links
    ------------------------------------
    
       All players have names, atleast 40% of the teams are currently 
    customized by either: appearance, stats or both to match their real 
    counter-parts. Regardless the Roster will never be 100% accurate. Some 
    players classes will be incorrect, due to inaccurate grade rankings by 
    EA SPORTS. Teams with (*) are 100% complete. To get the latest Roster, 
    check the FAQ section of this site.

    VI.  SharkPort FAQ
    ------------------
    
       What is a SharkPort? Can you download game saves? Can you 
    download code saves? What, if any, PlayStation 2 titles aren't 
    supported? All these questions and more, already answered for your 
    convenience. By GameShark Support 2001-08-08
     
    
    Question: What is a SharkPort?
    
    Answer: SharkPort is a code and game save transfer kit for the PS2.
    Download game saves from the internet or you can upload them from your 
    memory card(s) unto your computer. Also swap saves with friends and 
    others. Lastly you can use the SharkPort to download GameShark codes.
