    Here I have returned, with another college football guide. This time, it's for 
    NCAA Football 2005. "But, Steve!", you may say. "You originally planned to do 
    a NCAA Football 2004 guide! Now you've done guides for 2 NCAA games, but still 
    no NCAA 2004 guide!" Well, that is because NCAA 2004 will take a long time, 
    and I need side projects to keep me busy. Plus, it gives me more experience.
    
    Well, I slacked off and didn't get NCAA 2004 done in time. I will eventually 
    have it done, but for now, enjoy my attempt at the latest game in the series, 
    and in my opinion, the best one yet!
    
    Finally, I consider myself to be somewhat of a college football expert. While 
    I am not the greatest player of all time, I know how to read defenses, play 
    defense, run the option, play special teams, etc. I know the weaknesses and 
    strengths of  every team, as I spend hours of my own free time researching 
    each team. I am quite proficient at NCAA games in general, so writing for one 
    is a logical pick.
    
    I hope you enjoy this second attempt at a NCAA Football guide, and yes, I did 
    take some stuff from my NCAA 2000 guide and incorporate it into this guide. 
    The reason for that is simple. The two games are a lot alike, and therefore I 
    don't need to rewrite large sections that can save me time by just cutting and 
    pasting. Hope you understand and that it's not too much of a problem. Enjoy 
    the guide.

    Here is just a section for me to ramble about the various things you can do in 
    NCAA 2005. Mainly, I will discuss how to control the different types of 
    defenses and offenses you can run in the game, as well as an in-depth look at 
    audibles. You can find the controls in the manual or in the game itself, so I 
    won't bother including those. This is simply an in-depth breakdown of stuff 
    the game provides help on, but only to a certain extent.
    
             ---------------------
             | 2.1 | OFFENSE     |
             ---------------------
    
    The key to football may be defense, but if you don't have an offense, then you 
    really won't get anywhere. Offense will help you score points, and you have to 
    take advantage of the situations you are presented. The main tip I can offer 
    for you when it comes to offense is VARIETY, VARIETY, VARIETY. Don't do the 
    same thing over and over. The computer is a quick learner and will soon start 
    stopping everything you do.
    
    But, if you use variety, you'll keep your opponent on their heels. Like, 
    running down the middle, then an option, then a toss, then a short pass, then 
    another option, then a run down the middle, then a short pass, then a long 
    pass. How is the defense supposed to react to all these different plays? As 
    long as you keep varied, the defense will have a tough time stopping you.
    
    That doesn't mean you can't find your favorite plays and master using them. I 
    don't know every play with every team, as I usually stick with about 13 to 15 
    per team. Like Mick Foley once said, "It's not how many moves you know, it's 
    how you use the ones you do know." As long as you know a variety of plays, and 
    use them consistently, then you won't have to really delve into the playbook 
    for a new play.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    
    Let's look over each formation real quick, and what the advantages and 
    disadvantages to each are. If you want to run, make sure to use a formation 
    with a lot of offensive linemen and tight ends. Wishbone and I-Form work best. 
    Also, the shotgun offense is good for options and draw plays, but it is mainly 
    used for passing situations. Using the formations wisely is the key to a 
    successful offense. Also, again, make sure to run different plays out of each 
    formation. Don't run in I-Form all the time, or your opponent will catch on.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    | OPTION PLAYS       |
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    
    Perhaps the most important offensive play in college football is the option 
    play. The quarterback takes the ball and sprints to either side of the field, 
    with a running back (or full back) behind him. You then have the option to 
    pitch it to the running back, or hold onto it with the quarterback. Learning 
    the option is very important, as it is a very risky move.
    
    Why is the option so risky? Fumbles are a frequent problem. The quarterback 
    has to make a snap decision whether he wants to hold onto the ball or not. If 
    he pitches it, and there's a defender in between the quarterback and the 
    running back, it will fall to the ground, and then it's anyone's ball. That's 
    why you have to make sure it's safe to pitch before doing so.
    
    Also, pitching it DOES NOT mean you will automatically get more yards than 
    holding onto it. A corner could be blitzing, and therefore be right on the 
    running back. If you pitch it back 3 yards, the cornerback will be right there 
    to tackle the running back. You would have had 3 more yards if you held onto 
    the ball with the quarterback. So, make sure to learn when to pitch and when 
    not to.
    
    Despite the risks, the option play is easiest the most important and valued 
    play in all of college football, and one I use all the time. I strongly urge 
    you to practice it a lot to get the hang of the play, as you will soon see the 
    many advantages it brings to the table.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    
    Playing offense in NCAA Football 2005 is really challenging at first, due to 
    the fact there's so many different types of offenses out there. You basically 
    need to find an offense that best suits your playing style. Teams like Air 
    Force and Nebraska use a power-based, option attack, which features lots of 
    runs and option plays, but little passing. Meanwhile, a team like Florida has 
    this spread, fun and gun type offense where passing is the name of the game.
    
    The key is to find a team you like and learn how to use them. West coast 
    offenses were the big thing in this game, so let me break down how to run the 
    west coast offense for you real quickly. It may seem somewhat confusing at 
    first, but once you get the hang of it, you will see why so many coaches 
    decided to implement it into their systems.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    | WEST COAST OFFENSE |
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    
    I recommend using the west coast offense only if you are a very patient person 
    that won't mind the fact that every play doesn't have to go for 70 yards. It's 
    also a risky offense to use, because if you fall behind, it suddenly becomes a 
    whole lot less effective. It is best used for ball control. If your team has 
    struggles with turnovers and time of possession, the west coast offense is 
    definitely the best way to go.
    
    The west coast offense was the big offense introduced to most of college 
    football around the time NCAA 2003 came out. This is why you will see the game 
    mention it a lot in those friendly blue boxes that seem to pop up at the 
    beginning of every game. This offense is based on two things: short passes, 
    and short runs. Let me explain how to do each one now.
    
    Passing is simple. The key is to avoid blitzes and get off short passes a lot 
    of the time. Ball control is the name of the game with the west coast offense. 
    Find passes that rely on quick slants or curls, and get them to your 
    receivers. 3 or 4 yard pickups is really the best you can ask for with this 
    type of offense. Why would teams do that? Two reasons. 1, it gives you a time 
    of possession advantage. Two, it really leads to a decrease of turnovers.
    
    There's also one more reason why the west coast offense works: each time you 
    do these short passes, the defense starts to creep up a little. That's when 
    you hit them with a long pass play for a big gain. They'll start to go in 
    Cover 2, leaving the corners in 1-on-1 situations with your receivers, and 
    that's a battle you can normally win if your receivers are any good.
    
    Running is just the way you would normally do it. Run the ball a lot, and run 
    it effectively. Sweeps, Isos, Options, you really have to mix it up with this 
    style of offense to see the desired effects. Don't expect to get a lot of big 
    gains, but expect to have a nice, solid ball control offense that moves the 
    ball downfield.
    
    Advantages: Ball control offense gives you time of possession, big plays 
    happen more frequently because defense will defend the short field, turnover 
    rate goes down because of the short and safe passing game.
    
    Disadvantages: It doesn't work if you're behind in the 4th quarter. You really 
    need to have the lead for this type of offense to work. Also, you have to be 
    really patient, and your running game won't be too much of a factor. 
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    | WISHBONE OFFENSE   |
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    
    The wishbone offense is a little tricky to explain at first, and its strengths 
    are simple but effective. This offense is best used only if you want to run 
    the ball a lot, because you will get no receivers. You only get two tight ends 
    and fullbacks spread out to the left and the right of the quarterback, and a 
    running back behind them in the middle. It ends up looking something like 
    this:
    
         TE OL OL OL OL OL TE
                  QB
            FB         FB
                  RB
    
    It's a very cool looking offense, and it gives you a lot of run protection, 
    because the defense doesn't know what side you are going to run on. Also, you 
    get a lot of cool looking plays to run, like HB Direct, Triple Option, Weak 
    Pitch, and more. It is almost impossible for the defense to predict what you 
    will do next when you line up in this formation, and that is a big time 
    strength.
    
    The big problem, however, is your only pass catching threats are in the tight 
    end and running back positions. You don't get a single wide receiver, so the 
    defense will stay at home and let anything go past the line of scrimmage. Big 
    time runs are hard to come by with this offense simply because the safeties 
    will NEVER play deep on a wishbone offense. Even if you throw the ball, it's 
    going on a screen or to the tight end, and safeties don't worry about that too 
    much.
    
    For teams that like to run the ball a lot (Air Force and Nebraska spring to 
    mind), this is the logical offense for you to run. They don't have very good 
    receivers to begin with, so staying in this formation for much of the game and 
    spreading the ball out to different areas of the field will keep the defense 
    in a constant guessing game as they have to figure out what run is coming 
    next.
    
    Advantages: Gives tons of run protection, thanks to the two tight ends and two 
    fullbacks, and will always keep the defense on its heels because of the 
    variety of plays that can be run in any direction.
    
    Disadvantages: Safeties won't go deep and will stay at home, usually 
    preventing a big play. No receivers means the passing game is very limited. If 
    the defense stops you on 1st or 2nd down, you'll be in trouble.
    
    
             ---------------------
             | 2.2 | DEFENSE     |
             ---------------------
    
    In my opinion, playing defense is a lot harder than playing offense. The 
    reason I say this is because with offense, you know ahead of time what you 
    have to do. On defense, you have to guess what your opponent is going to do, 
    and then react to it. It's a little tougher, but fortunately it only takes a 
    little bit of practice before it becomes easier to handle. 
    
    The key to defenses is to mix your packages up. Know exactly what you're 
    doing, and recognize the strengths and weaknesses to each coverage. I will 
    soon give you a rundown of all the different kinds of things you can do to mix 
    up your defense in an attempt to confuse the offense. Shifting linebackers, 
    calling audibles, and moving the coverage team back and forth are ways to 
    confuse the opponent further.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    | USER CONTROL       |
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    
    First things first, who should you control on defense? If you suck at pass 
    defense (like I do), let the computer take care of it, and then switch to the 
    person nearest the receiver when the ball is in the air. I almost always 
    control a defensive lineman, unless I KNOW the run is coming, then I move my 
    defensive line in, spread my linebackers out, and then control a linebacker, 
    to react to whatever side the runner goes (he probably won't go down the 
    middle when he sees my defensive line closed in).
    
    There are, of course, some disadvantages to doing this. By controlling a 
    defensive lineman, you don't get to see down the field as much as you may with 
    controlling a free safety or linebacker. The computer AI is not that smart and 
    will often leave receivers open, without your intention. Therefore, if you 
    feel safe with your pass coverage, and feel you can make more plays by 
    controlling a free safety or cornerback, then by all means, go for it.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    | FORMATIONS         |
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    
    Here I am going to give you a rundown on every formation available in the 
    game, and what the strengths and weaknesses to each one of them are. Choosing 
    the right formation is critical to your success, and knowing what formation to 
    use in each situation will prove to be very helpful.
    
    4-4: This formation puts 8 guys in the box, meaning it is used solely to stop 
    the run and short passes. Long passes in shotgun sets will burn this defense 
    every time, so only go on this formation if you expect the run coming. Short 
    passes in Cover 3 are useless as well, so if you expect a screen, use 4-4 as 
    well. Blitzes also are effective from this formation.
    
    5-2: This is sort of like nickel defense, but it gives you one more defensive 
    lineman, and one less secondary defender. This is a good defense if you want 
    to rush the quarterback, because you get 5 defensive linemen to match their 5 
    offensive linemen (this is the only formation where you get 5 defensive 
    linemen.) Linebackers are good for pass coverage, as well. This is a very 
    underrated defense that comes in handy in key running and short yardage 
    situations.
    
    4-3: This is one of the "base" defenses in the game, along with 3-4. This 
    formation allows you to get a little bit of pressure on the quarterback, while 
    still having linebackers to help out in the middle of the field. I only use 
    this defense on a few plays each game, because 3-4 is a little bit better for 
    me. 4-3 works better against the run than 3-4, and 3-4 works better against 
    the pass than 4-3 does.
    
    3-4: The main "base" defense of the game, it is one I recommend you use for a 
    good portion of the game, as its only main weakness is runs down the middle, 
    but if you blitz the linebackers to the middle of the field, that won't be as 
    effective either. It's also good for Zone defenses, and if you expect a pass 
    on 3rd and 6 or more, 3-4 is sometimes the best way to go, surprisingly 
    enough. 
    
    Nickel: The nickel defense is like the 5-2 in a way, but instead of getting an 
    extra defensive lineman, you get an extra cover guy instead. This makes the 
    nickel defense one of the prime choices for pass coverage (I actually prefer 
    it to dime defense due to the extra linebacker you get in nickel coverage, who 
    I usually end up controlling.), as it not only stops the pass well, it's also 
    somewhat effective against the run.
    
    Dime: Surprisingly, I don't see much use with the dime defense in this game. 
    Even on 3rd and Long, I tend to stick with the Nickel defense. The only time I 
    use Dime, I usually end up doing a Corner or Safety Blitz, just to try to 
    confuse my opponent. Otherwise, I almost never use this defense, due to the 
    weak run defense, and the fact that passes seem to be completed a lot on this 
    defense even with the 6 defensive backs on the field.

    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    
    In order to have a successful defense, you are going to have to blitz 
    sometimes. There are really two types of blitzes: run blitzes and pass 
    blitzes, but since the game doesn't really differentiate between the two, I 
    won't waste your time rambling about that crap. Instead, I will focus on the 
    kinds of blitzes you can do, why blitzing works, why it doesn't work, when to 
    blitz, and when not to blitz.
    
    First of all, a blitz is simply a defensive play where a person that's not a 
    defensive lineman rushes the quarterback. This can be a linebacker, safety, or 
    corner. You can also find blitzes where multiple people blitz, as you can get 
    a linebacker/safety or safety/corner blitz going. These prove to be very 
    effective at times, for a couple of reasons.
    
    Let's say you don't blitz for a while. The quarterback is starting to become 
    pretty comfortable throwing the ball and finding a wide open receiver. What do 
    you do? Blitz both corners. He goes back to pass.. and BOOM! He gets sacked. 
    Because he didn't see the blitz coming. It's always good to surprise your 
    opponent with a well-timed blitz, and they usually prove to be pretty 
    effective.
    
    Now, there are downsides to blitzes of course. If the quarterback sees the 
    blitz coming, he will almost always be able to complete a pass to a wide open 
    guy. Since someone is blitzing, that means a person he is supposed to be 
    covering is usually left wide open in the field of play. If the quarterback 
    sees him and gets the pass off in time, it will almost always end up with a 
    nice little completion.
    
    There is good news, though. Sometimes, he will throw on one foot, or throw on 
    the run, and miss the targeted receiver completely. But other times, he will 
    make a bad decision, and throw a pass that you can easily intercept. BLITZES 
    CAUSE TURNOVERS. That is the #1 reason to use a blitz sometimes, to give you a 
    shot of intercepting the ball, or making the quarterback fumble. 
    
    When should you blitz? Always find the right times and situations to blitz. 
    The quarterback may be getting comfortable in the pocket, so if he is, throw a 
    blitz at him. Even if he completes the pass, the blitz is now in the back of 
    his mind, and if you go into zone coverage next play, he will be a little 
    confused and hopefully make a bad decision.
    
    Just make sure not to blitz too much. Don't blitz if you just blitzed, and 
    don't blitz on 3rd and 4-6, because he will just find a receiver open in the 
    middle of the field for a first down. Keep the blitzing to a minimum (under 25 
    percent) and you should be fine. Good luck.

    | ZONE VS MAN TO MAN |
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    
    To wrap up this section, I will give a quick wrapup of the difference between 
    zone coverage and man to man coverage, so you will have an easier time with 
    pass defense. They are the main two kinds of pass defense, and they are both 
    quite different. Man defense relies more on tight coverage with one corner on 
    one receiver. In zone, the receivers are usually left open, but safeties and 
    corners blanket them, so when the pass is thrown, they run over to tip it.
    
    The problem with zone coverage is that the quarterback can call something like 
    an out pattern, and the receiver will blow right through the zone defense for 
    a big game. The problem with man to man is that hooks and similar passes will 
    cause you problems. You have to recognize the weaknesses in each defense and 
    try to fix them, because usually your opponent will be able to find the wide 
    open receiver.
    
    The main problem with man to man is that your corners will end up with one-on-
    one situations a lot of the time, so make sure you have good solid corners if 
    you use this defense a lot. I hate having to defend a long pass with a corner 
    and having him completely miss the pass, leaving the receiver open for an easy 
    touchdown. The lack of safety help is a definite concern.
    
    ZONE 
    Advantage: Safeties stay in middle of the field, so they're able to help out a 
    cornerback when the ball is in the air.
    Disadvantage: Slants will be a nightmare, as the receiver will turn past the 
    safety and keep going, usually left wide open.
    
    MAN TO MAN
    Advantage: Corners play tight coverage, preventing slants and other passes of 
    the like.
    Disadvantage: It's easy to take advantage of weaker corners after a while, and 
    hooks will work almost every time.
    
    OVERALL
    I advise playing zone defense most of the time. Man is too easy to beat by 
    experienced quarterbacks.

    Playing defense in NCAA Football 2005, or any other game in the series for 
    that matter, is a trial and error method that takes time to develop. If you 
    are patient, learn the different kinds of defenses and blitzes, and use them 
    effectively, you should be fine. Remember to mix up coverages, and remember 
    that you won't stop every play, and you will be just fine, I promise.
    
             ----------------------------------
             | 2.3 | INCREASED GAME CHALLENGE |
             ----------------------------------
    
    PASSING
    -------
    
    The first thing you will notice about the game when you first play is that 
    yes, it's really challenging. The defense reacts a lot quicker now, making 
    passing plays especially difficult. The key to beating the computer is 
    throwing a variety of passes, mainly short, and never throwing into coverage. 
    The computer reacts great, as cornerbacks will now tip balls a lot more. 
    Scramble a lot until you see someone surely open, then throw softly into their 
    hands.
    
    
    RECEIVING
    ---------
    
    Receivers also drop more balls than ever, if you computer control them. When 
    the ball is in the air, control them by pushing X, and then pushing the catch 
    button when the ball goes into their hands. This makes drops less frequent, 
    although they do still occur from time to time. This is college football, 
    after all.
    
    
    RUNNING
    -------
    
    Running the ball is also a tad harder. Now, you have to hit the hole properly. 
    No more running to the inside on counters, or doing 9 draw plays in a row. 
    Draw plays almost never work because the defensive tackles will react much 
    more quicker now, so running plays to the outside actually work best, as long 
    as the defense isn't blitzing. I like to run down the middle about 50 percent 
    of the time, running option 30 percent, and run a counter 20 percent. 
    
    The key now is mixing up your plays. Since the defense is much smarter, they 
    will react quicker to anything you do. If you run counters consistently, the 
    defensive linemen will start to shoot to the running back quicker, as will the 
    linebackers. If you run down the middle a lot, then run a counter, the 
    linebacker will still play the middle, but you will be on the outside, leading 
    to a big gain.
    
    Also, make sure to run plays to the weak side as well as the strong side. You 
    may think there's less blockers, but there will always be blockers helping you 
    (fullback will run to weak side when ball is snapped), and the defense may 
    think you are running to the strong side, leading to a big gain. It works a 
    lot, I assure you.
    
    
    DEFENSE
    -------
    
    Playing defense is actually not so hard, however, as the added computer 
    awareness actually helps you a lot. Running plays are easy to stop as your 
    defensive linemen are much better now, even if you're playing with a bad team. 
    Playing zone defenses a lot helps vs. passing attacks, as man defense suddenly 
    sucks.. the receivers will always zoom by the corners, leading to huge pass 
    plays. 
    
    I always recommend playing a 4-3 or 3-4 Cover 2 Zone for the majority of the 
    game, as there's really no better defense in the game. Mix in a few blitzes, 
    mainly of the corner variety, but don't do this too often, as the quarterback 
    will pick up on this quickly, and it will lead to huge holes in your defense. 
    For instance, if a corner blitzes, no one's covering the guy, so the QB can 
    get it to him quickly. So, only blitz about 30 percent of the time for the 
    most success.
    
             -------------------------------
             | 2.4  | HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE |
             -------------------------------
    
    Another big time addition is home field advantage. Now, it is much harder to 
    win on the road than it normally is. This is because the crowd now factors 
    directly into your team's performance. The louder they are, the lousier your 
    team tends to play. Keeping your cool and making smart decisions is the key to 
    victory in these situations.
    
    An important addition is the matchup stick. Push the right analog button to 
    the right before a play to trigger the matchup stick. This shows who is a good 
    player, who is a bad player, who is composed, and who is rattled by the 
    pressure. Works well in road situations.
    
    There are some important things to remember when playing on the road. The 
    tougher the place you are playing, the louder it is, and the harder it is to 
    control plays. It is much harder to play in Florida than, say, Idaho. If 
    you're playing in a tough venue, there are some certain tips that will benefit 
    you greatly:
    
    - Run the ball a lot. Ball control offense is key to success as well as 
    keeping the crowd quiet, as it keeps the other offense off the field, and 
    bores the crowd with your persistent running. If you can run the ball 
    successfully, you have a good chance of winning, or at least not letting the 
    crowd factor in your loss as much as they normally would.
    
    - Don't make silly mistakes. Turnovers are the #1 killer of teams on the road. 
    Play it safe on 3rd and long. Don't make bad passes. Don't do a lot of spin 
    and juke moves. Remember KSU vs Oklahoma last year? KSU played it safe early, 
    then opened it up later once they had their confidence going. There's no 
    reason to play dangerous on the road, unless you're behind and running out of 
    time.
    
    - However, this doesn't mean you can't spring a big play on the defense. This 
    will shut the crowd up quickly. Mix in play action passes with your short 
    range running attack, and watch the defense bite on it eventually. Nothing 
    says "shut up" like a 20 play, 70 yard drive that takes 4 minutes, then a 80 
    yard TD bomb on the next drive.
    
    - Stick with the gameplan. You know what kind of team you are. If you're Air 
    Force, use the Triple Option. If you're Florida, do the spread offense. You're 
    still the same team, just harder to use now.
    
    - Don't audible and hot route a lot at the line. It's very hard to do so, and 
    your players will sometimes mess up and then you'll be in trouble. Live with 
    the playbook for the most part. Motioning is okay, though.
    
    - On defense, be aggressive but not overly aggressive. Blitz a lot, but not 
    too much. I know I'm contradicting myself, but basically play some zone 
    defense, then blitz out of nowhere. The QB will make mistakes and the crowd 
    will get frustrated.
    
    If you're playing at home, it's way easier. Remember you can hush the crowd at 
    the line by pushing R2, as well as pumping them up while on defense. Again, 
    the tougher the crowd, the louder the bar goes, and the harder it is for the 
    opponent to call plays. Two things to remember at home:
    
    - No ball control offense usually. It bores the crowd. Run it sometimes, but 
    make sure to keep the offense varied and open to keep the crowd into it. Only 
    do ball control when you're winning in 4th quarter.. crowd won't mind then.
    
    - Audible and hot route away! Remember to push R2 to shut the crowd up, then 
    have fun.
    
    Here are the toughest venues to play in NCAA Football 2005:
    
    1.  Florida          10. Georgia            19. Auburn
    2.  Tennessee        11. Iowa               20. Syracuse
    3.  Ohio State       12. Michigan           21. Alabama
    4.  LSU              13. Virginia Tech      22. Kansas State
    5.  Oregon           14. Florida State      23. West Virginia
    6.  Washington       15. Notre Dame         24. Washington State
    7.  Texas A+M        16. Clemson            25. Miami (FL)
    8.  Wisconsin        17. Penn State
    9.  Nebraska         18. Oklahoma
    
    I don't necessarily agree with all of these, but there's the list.

             --------------------
             | 3.1 | EXHIBITION |
             --------------------
    
    This is not the hardest thing in the world to figure out. Exhibition mode is 
    basically a game where you select one team and you face off against another 
    team. No strings attached, just one on one game. Nothing too fancy, so let's 
    move onto something else far more complicated.
    
             -----------------
             | 3.2 | DYNASTY |
             -----------------
    
    This is pretty much the main draw of the game, and for good reason. In dynasty 
    mode, you select a team and try to build them into a national powerhouse. You 
    become the coach basically, and you sign new players, make a schedule, become 
    a disciplinarian, recruit, raise team prestige, redshirt players, create off 
    season plans, and oh yeah, play the games.
    
    The number one question people often wonder when they select dynasty mode is, 
    what team should they be? It depends really. While it is easier to be USC or 
    Miami, they are already well established programs and the challenge of taking  
    a team and making them good is virtually erased. It is more interesting to 
    take a USC or Miami and to try to KEEP them good, but it's still not as 
    challenging.
    
    Therefore, it's more fun to select a team that's mediocre or crappy and to try 
    to build them up. I selected Northwestern, as I like them, they play in a 
    tough conference, have trouble recruiting, and aren't that good (but not awful 
    either). With 176 or so teams to select from, the possibilities are virtually 
    endless. 
    
    Once you select a team, you first have to decide what players to redshirt for 
    the upcoming year. This means, you sit them down for a year, so they can't 
    play, and can learn the system. It also means they get an additional year of 
    eligibility, so they can play a year after they graduate. It means you don't 
    get to use them now, but you get a smart player who knows the system for an 
    extra year down the line. However, it's not crucial to do so now, so just 
    select a player or two for loaded positions and move on.
    
    Here are the options you get for a dynasty mode. Note there are tons of 
    different ones, and each one is fairly useful. 
    
    PLAY WEEK
    ---------
    This is to play your next game. You get two options here.. one is for weekly 
    schedule, one is for team schedule. Useful to track your previous games, or to

    FEATURES/MY NCAA
    ----------------
    Change the settings, fix rosters, or create your own playbook!
    
    Now that you know all of this, time to play your first game. You can either 
    use the current schedule or modify your existing one, by going to the schedule 
    section. Once you play your 1st game, you can no longer fix the schedule the 
    way you like it.
    
    During the year, you will encounter players who do stupid things, and you must 
    punish them. Before a game, a box will come up stating that a player broke a 
    rule, and you can choose to punish him. Each time you punish a player, a 
    certain amount of points are taken away. Once down to zero, NCAA will 
    investigate. Fortunately, you should be able to run a clean program and not 
    have to worry about that.
    
    As you play through games, you can track your team's progress. Once done a 
    year, you have to recruit players, and that's when the fun begins. First, 
    check the school budgets. You can fix the points up to your liking.. for 
    instance, remove points from discipline and add them onto recruiting. The 
    choice is yours.
    
    After doing so, check out your players leaving, and then focus on replacing 
    them with new recruits. This is the most fun of dynasty mode, and I almost 
    gave it its own section, but I decided to just place it here. Recruiting is 
    when you check America and get players to commit to your program. It's the 
    only way to maintain the program.
    
    Check your interested prospects list and focus most of your attention on them. 
    The better the player, the more recruiting points you should use. Recruiting 
    points are points you get to recruit players.. you only get a certain amount 
    each week, but they refresh each week so feel free to use them all up each 
    week. Like I said, focus first on top players and holes in your team.
    
    There are several different pitches. Playing time, coaching style, coach 
    prestige, program prestige, and location. Focus mostly on playing time and 
    coaching style if you're a rebuilding program, as coaching and team prestige 
    hasn't been great yet. Players do like playing time and the chance to be part 
    of a magical rebuilding team, so make sure to pitch playing time to a lot of 
    players. Some are interested in other things though, so keep that in mind.
    
    Once you offer all the available scholarships and run out of recruiting 
    points, advance to the next week. Now, you very rarely will have signed a 
    player. That's okay. Keep focusing on the ones that are interested in your 
    program. Some players have already signed elsewhere, or with you. So, focus on 
    other players. 
    
    By week 3, you should start to see some recruits coming in. Remember to focus 
    on holes in your team. Once recruiting is done, you should have a solid roster 
    of players. The rest can be filled via walk ons if need be. Now, the final 
    three steps before moving onto the next season.
    
    TRAINING RESULTS: Put the players through training camp to improve good ones 
    and see which ones don't have what it takes to be in your program.
    
    CUT PLAYERS: Cut loose the mediocre players, only do this if your roster is 
    above 70, otherwise don't worry about it as it's better to have a mediocre 
    player as emergency than no player at all.
    
    SET DEPTH CHART: Find space for your new recruits and pick your starters for 
    the upcoming season. Higher rated players should go first of course, but 
    remember that sometimes you should focus on individual things, like speed over 
    power, or whatnot, if your program fits a certain style.
    
    Now you're onto season 2, where the cycle will continue. Eventually, you can 
    sign with new programs who want you to help rebuild them. It never ends! Have 
    fun.
    
             -------------------------
             | 3.3 | CREATE A SCHOOL |
             -------------------------
    
    Creating a school is one of the most fun things to do in NCAA 2005. You start 
    from the ground up, designing a school's stadium, naming them, giving them 
    uniforms, the whole 9-yards. Here is a quick rundown of all the things you can 
    do in this mode.
    
    1st Page: You can design their colors, give them a nickname, and more. Picking 
    a cool fight song is easy because they give you a ton of options, mascot may 
    be a little tough though because you can't design your own. :( Abbreviation is 
    the name that shows when you're playing the game.
    
    2nd Page: Here is where you design the stadium your team will kick ass in. You 
    can do anything from placing the location of the video screen, to what kind of 
    art you want in the end zone. It's really great.
    
    3rd Page: Here is the final stop. You can create your school's uniforms. I 
    have a lot of fun doing this and I am sure you will too! I especially like 
    giving them crazy alternate uniforms and pulling them out for special games.
    
    
             -----------------------
             | 3.4 | RIVALRY GAMES |
             -----------------------
    
    Rivalry games are pretty simple stuff. You select a rivalry game in the play 
    now screen, or play one during a dynasty, and if you win, you get a trophy. As 
    you can see, some trophies are given in a series of games over the season, 
    like the Commander in Chief Trophy.

             | 3.5 | COLLEGE CLASSICS |
             --------------------------
    
    This is another SUPER fun mode, one of many to be found in this incredible 
    game. You get to choose a classic game from years past, and start from a 
    certain situation in the game, and try to rewrite history, or keep history the 
    way it is in some instances. Here is a quick rundown of all the college 
    classics you will get to play through:
    
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1980 SMU at 1980 BYU: December 19, 1980
    -> BYU 46, SMU 45 <-
    SMU: Overall B, Offense B, Defense B+, Special Teams A-
    BYU: Overall B+, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: "America's Most Exciting Bowl Game", otherwise known as the 
    Holiday Bowl, was an old-fashioned shootout in the 1980 version of the game 
    between BYU and SMU. BYU is trailing 45-31 late in the 4th quarter. Can you 
    lead a "Cougar Comeback", just as the legendary BYU quarterback did over 20 
    years ago?
    
    How to Win: This one is kind of easy. You start off at 45-31 and about to kick 
    an extra point, to make it 45-32. Kick an onside kick, and get a quick score 
    to make it 45-39. Now, you can kick it deep if you have around 1:35-1:40 left, 
    because they gave you all three timeouts even though the real BYU did not have 
    them. Make SMU punt, get the ball back, and drive the ball down the field for 
    a game winning touchdown.
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1982 Stanford at 1982 California: November 20, 1982
    -> California 25, Stanford 20 <-
    Stanford: Overall B+, Offense A-, Defense B, Special Teams A-
    California: Overall B, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B-
    
    Description: This game will be forever known for one play. To this day, "The 
    Play" is one of college football's most memorable moments. The 1982 regular 
    season matchup between Cal and Stanford wasn't for the Pac 10 title. It had no 
    national title implications. But it did have a marching band and a five 
    lateral last-second kickoff return for a touchdown. Take control of Cal and 
    see if you can lead them to victory in he final seconds, this time without the 
    help of the band.
    
    How to Win: It starts off with Stanford attempting the field goal, so you can 
    cheat and turn the CPU kicker sliders all the way down, go in JV, and pump the 
    crowd all the way up. If you feel like attempting the kickoff, you can go 
    about it one of two ways. Fair catch the kickoff and  call a hail mary, but 
    that doesn't work too often. The kickoff itself is the fun part, you can do 
    all sorts of crazy laterals in an attempt to win. I wish the marching band was 
    there, though. :(
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1983 Missouri at 1983 BYU: December 23, 1983
    -> BYU 21, Missouri 17 <-
    Missouri: Overall B+, Offense B, Defense B+, Special Teams B+
    BYU: Overall B, Defense A-, Defense B, Special Teams B-
    
    Description: The 1983 Holiday Bowl matched up the BYU Cougars and the Missouri 
    Tigers. BYU used a trick play halfback pass to the quarterback to cap a 4th 
    quarter comeback win. Take control of the Cougars with 30 seconds left, 
    trailing 17-14 and see if you can come up with the win as well.
    
    How to Win: Hm.. another BYU Holiday Bowl game. Haha, it'd be funny if the 
    game made you do the HB Option Pass to the QB, but it doesn't. This one is 
    kind of easy, though. You got only 14 yards to go for a touchdown, and one 
    timeout, so winning is almost automatic unless you suck. You can even run a QB 
    Draw or option play because BYU's quarterback (Steve Young, ever heard of 
    him?) is pretty fast, and you have a timeout to work with anyways. You can 
    always try for overtime if you have to, you're in field goal range 
    automatically anyways so it's a last resort.

    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1983 Miami at 1983 Nebraska: January 1, 1984
    -> Miami 31, Nebraska 30 <-
    Miami: Overall B, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B-
    Nebraska: Overall B, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B
    
    Description: The Cornhuskers came into the 1984 Orange Bowl undefeated, ranked 
    #1 and as heavy favorites. The #4 Hurricanes took that underdog role and got 
    out to an early lead. But with 48 seconds remaining, the Huskers scored a 
    touchdown making it 31-30. Instead of going for 1 point and the tie, the 
    Nebraska coach decided to go for 2 and the win. Take control of the Huskers 
    and go for the win.
    
    How to Win: You start off at 31-30 and all you need is a two point conversion. 
    An option play from shotgun seems to work well, or a HB Angle pass. Maybe a 
    draw play. This is one of the easier ones to complete.
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1984 Boston College at 1984 Miami: November 23, 1984
    -> Boston College 47, Miami 45 <-
    Boston College: Overall B+, Offense A, Defense B, Special Teams B
    Miami: Overall B+, Offense A-, Defense B+, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: It's arguably the most famous play in college football history. 
    The 1984 Boston College-Miami regular season matchup featured a huge 
    performance by a pint-sized quarterback. The Boston College QB threw for 476 
    yards and 3 touchdowns. But no other pass was as important as that last second 
    63-yard Hail Mary, which gave Boston College the win and gave their 
    quarterback the Heisman Trophy. Take control of the Eagles and try to 
    duplicate this great moment in college football history.
    
    How to Win: It takes a while sometimes. You need to throw the ball all the way 
    down the field, Hail Mary style, and hope for a miracle user catch. Rollout to 
    the left or right and heave the ball down the field in hopes of catching it. 
    It may take a few tries, I think it took me seven tries before I finally 
    caught the ball.
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1985 Alabama at 1985 Auburn: November 30, 1985
    -> Alabama 25, Auburn 23 <-
    Alabama: Overall B+, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B+
    Auburn: Overall B, Offense A-, Defense B, Special Teams B-
    
    Description: Some call it the greatest Iron Bowl ever. The 1985 Alabama-Auburn 
    matchup was a classic battle in their fierce rivalry. Auburn came into the 
    game with the best running back in the country, a future Heisman Trophy 
    winner. On this day, however, a kicker was the difference. The Alabama 
    placekicker made 4 field goals on the way to a 25-23 Alabama victory. Relive 
    this moment by taking over as Alabama in the 4th quarter, needing one last 
    drive to win the game. Roll Tide!
    
    How to Win: The kicker is great, so getting him into field goal range is the 
    toughest part. However, you get plenty of time to work with (57 seconds), and 
    a hurry-up offense will work best. Fix your audibles up in the menu and go to 
    work. Try to reach for the sidelines whenever possible to conserve clock. I 
    like throwing the Shotgun Spread Deep Attack, the L button receiver slants 
    left and I usually throw it to him in man coverage, or deep if in zone.
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1986 Miami vs 1986 Penn State: January 2, 1987
    -> Penn State 14, Miami 10 <-
    Miami: Overall A-, Offense A, Defense A, Special Teams B
    Penn State: Overall B-, Offense B-, Defense B, Special Teams C+
    
    Description: The 1987 Fiesta Bowl between the Miami Hurricanes and the Penn 
    State Nittany Lions was the first in the Fiesta's history to decide the 
    national championship. It was a tale of two entirely different styles. Penn 
    State was quiet and confident. The Hurricanes got off their plane in Tempe 
    dressed in military fatigues. The Penn State defense was dominant, forcing 
    Miami's QB to throw 5 INTs. Can you lead Miami down the field in the final 
    minutes to capture the national title?
    
    How to Win: Yay, I told you some made you rewrite history. This time, you have 
    a world of time to work with, 3:09 left, and 1 timeout, starting on the 23. 77 
    yards to go with that amount of time is cake. Run some draw plays out of 
    shotgun to confuse the defense, and keep the defense honest. Try to score with 
    as little time as possible to avoid having to go on defense. This is one of 
    the easier ones to complete. 
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1990 Notre Dame vs 1990 Colorado: January 1, 1991 
    -> Colorado 10, Notre Dame 9 <-
    Notre Dame: Overall B, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B
    Colorado: Overall B, Offense B+, Defense B+, Special Teams B-
    
    Description: The 1991 Orange Bowl was a matchup between the top ranked 
    Colorado Buffaloes and the #5 Notre Dame Fighting Irish. This game had 
    national title implications because a Colorado win could've given them at 
    least a share of the national title. Colorado had some bad luck at the end of 
    the 1st half when their star QB went down with a knee injury. With Colorado 
    clinging to a 10-9 lead late in the 4th quarter, they were punting to the 
    Irish and their star return man. Can you make something happen here?
    
    How to Win: You play as Notre Dame, so returning the punt is key. It would be 
    more fun to try to stop the kick returner, I think, as he is just awesome. 
    Blazing speed will do you well here, so run it back as far as you can, get 
    into field goal range, and kick a field goal to win. You have 43 seconds to 
    work with, so time isn't too much of an issue if you try some long passes or 
    get a nice punt return from the Rocket.
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------

    1991 Miami at 1991 Florida State: November 16, 1991
    -> Miami 17, Florida State 16 <-
    Miami: Overall B+, Offense A-, Defense B+, Special Teams B+
    Florida State: Overall B, Offense B, Defense B+, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: The #2 Miami Hurricanes stormed into Tallahassee to face the top 
    ranked Seminoles on November 16, 1991. What turned out to be an excellent game 
    from start to finish will almost certainly be remembered by football fans for 
    one missed field goal. Miami is leading 17-16 late in the 4th quarter. Florida 
    State has the ball. It's up to you to lead the Seminoles down the field and 
    put them in position for the game winning field goal. And here's one last word 
    of advice: Don't miss it wide right.
    
    How to Win: Ah, yes, the infamous Wide Right game. I hate FSU so using them 
    was tough, but with 3 minutes to go, there's plenty of time to drive into 
    field goal range. Weldon is a pretty athletic quarterback, but I wouldn't try 
    too much considering how fast Miami's defense is. A short passing game mixed 
    in with draw plays should get you into field goal range with plenty of time.. 
    and you won't be as nervous as the kicker was that day.
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1992 Penn State at 1992 Notre Dame: November 14, 1992
    -> Notre Dame 17, Penn State 16 <-
    Penn State: Overall B+, Offense B, Defense B+, Special Teams B+
    Notre Dame: Overall B, Offense B, Defense B, Special Teams B-
    
    Description: The 1992 Penn State-Notre Dame game was a classic college 
    football matchup. To most people this game was simply known as "The Snow Bowl" 
    because the entire field was covered with it. The game also featured a very 
    exciting 2-point conversion to win the game. Here's the situation: Penn State 
    is leading 16-9. There are 25 seconds left, Notre Dame ball on the PSU 3-yard 
    line. Not only do you have to score a TD here, you also have a tough decision 
    after you score. Do you go for the tie or the win?
    
    How to Win: FB Dive or QB Sneaks work best here, maybe a play action pass to 
    the tight end in the end zone if you're feeling frisky. The problem is that 
    you can go for 1 and then settle for overtime, even though the description 
    indicates you'd be playing for the tie. These college classics aren't as good 
    as they should be. Anyways, go for 2 or play for OT, it's really up to you, 
    depends on how much time you want to waste I guess.
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------

    1993 Florida State at 1993 Notre Dame: November 13, 1993
    -> Notre Dame 31, Florida State 24 <-
    Florida State: Overall B, Offense B, Defense B+, Special Teams C+
    Notre Dame: Overall B-, Offense B, Defense B, Special Teams B-
    
    Description: The 1993 regular season matchup between #1 FSU and #2 Notre Dame 
    is still to this day known as "The Game of the Century". The Seminoles, led by 
    their Heisman-winning quarterback, came into the game on a roll. They had 
    already beaten five ranked opponents and were looking to add a sixth victim. 
    The Fighting Irish had different plans. The Seminoles are trailing 31-17 with 
    about 4 minutes to play. Can you change college football history and lead 
    Florida State to victory in South Bend?
    
    How to Win: Ah, the first game I ever attended. And they're making me go 
    against ND, bah. Situation starts at 4th and goal from the 20, so try for the 
    end zone right away. If you don't get it, restart. A touchdown makes it 31-24. 
    Get back on defense and hold them. Hopefully you'll have around 2 minutes left 
    for a game-tying drive. Charlie Ward has excellent speed and is a great QB so 
    you won't have many problems tying it hopefully, then in OT just do what you 
    do best and escape with the win.

    1994 Colorado at 1994 Michigan: September 24, 1994
    -> Colorado 27, Michigan 26 <-
    Colorado: Overall B+, Offense A-, Defense B+, Special Teams B+
    Michigan: Overall B, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: The early season battle between the Michigan Wolverines and the 
    Colorado Buffaloes in 1994 was a great game with a fantastic finish. Some 
    refer to the game as the "Miracle in Michigan". It's 26-21, Michigan leading. 
    There are only 6 seconds left, and it's CU's ball on the 36 yard line. Their 
    only hope is one last Hail Mary throw. The Colorado QB takes the snap and 
    launches the ball toward the end zone. The CU receiver somehow sneaks by the 
    defenders and hauls it in. Can you repeat this feat?
    
    How to Win: It takes a while sometimes. You need to throw the ball all the way 
    down the field, Hail Mary style, and hope for a miracle user catch. Rollout to 
    the left or right and heave the ball down the field in hopes of catching it. 
    It may take a few tries, I think it took me seven tries before I finally 
    caught the ball. There is one other way to try this, too. Throw a ball to 
    around the 50 or so, get out of bounds, and try a slightly easier 50-yard 
    bomb. It's up to you though.
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------

    1994 Florida at 1994 Florida State: November 26, 1994
    -> Florida 31, Florida State 31 <-
    Florida: Overall B+, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams A-
    Florida State: Overall B+, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: The Gators came into Tallahassee in 1994 with a lot of momentum. 
    Led by their star QB, they opened a 31-3 lead heading into the final quarter. 
    What seemed like a blowout win suddenly turned into a terrible nightmare. It 
    took them 3 quarters to wake up, but the Seminoles did just that, storming 
    back with touchdown after touchdown. The game ended in a 31-31 tie, which for 
    UF fans truly felt like kissing their sisters. Here's your chance to change 
    history and erase the "Choke at Doak" from memory.
    
    How to Win: Yay, you get to change history again. The game starts at 31-31 
    tie, you're getting kicked off to with 1:48 to go. You have one timeout 
    remaining. I returned the kickoff to about the 30 and went from there, using a 
    short controlled passing game, mostly in the No Back Normal set. Arrows worked 
    really well. Once I got into field goal range with 45 seconds, I ran the ball 
    a few times, and kicked a 39 yarder to win. The kicker is definitely pretty 
    good. Even though the QB doesn't have a lot of speed, the QB Draw worked well 
    for me.
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    
    -----------============-----------============-----------============---------
    1995 Florida State at 1995 Virginia: November 2, 1995
    -> Virginia 33, Florida State 28 <-
    Florida State: Overall B+, Offense B+, Defense B+, Special Teams B+
    Virginia: Overall A-, Offense A-, Defense A, Special Teams A-
    
    Description: Coming into the November 2, 1995 game against the Virginia 
    Cavaliers, the Florida State Seminoles were a perfect 29-0 in ACC conference 
    play. FSU didn't simply dominate its ACC foes, it owned them. But all of that 
    changed that November evening when the Seminoles came up a few inches short of 
    maintaining their perfect mark. In what was a very exciting game, it all came 
    down to the final play. FSU was trailing 33-28, ball on the Virginia 6 yard 
    line, and only time for one final play...
    
    How to Win: Man, I gotta help Florida State win AGAIN? This is getting crazy. 
    Anyways, only a chance for one more play, so throw a HB Angle pass into the 
    end zone, or something where you know you have a good chance of scoring on. 
    May take you a few tries to get this one because Virginia was playing inspired 
    football that day.

    1996 Ohio State vs 1996 Arizons State: January 1, 1997
    -> Ohio State 20, Arizona State 17 <-
    Ohio State: Overall B, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams A-
    Arizona State: Overall B+, Offense B+, Defense B+, Special Teams A-
    
    Description: The 1997 Rose Bowl was a thrilling contest between the Ohio State 
    Buckeyes and the Arizona State Sun Devils. The entire game was back and forth. 
    It looked like both teams had the game won, then the other team would score 
    again. The Sun Devils star QB was known for his 4th quarter comebacks. Take 
    control of the Sun Devils, who are trailing 14-10 at this point with 1:40 to 
    go. See if you can lead them to another comeback win, this time for all the 
    roses.
    
    How to Win: Of course, ASU ended up scoring on this drive in reality and 
    giving up a TD on the final drive of the game. Let's try to reverse that by 
    scoring with as little time left as possible. Try to score with about 5 
    seconds to go so OSU doesn't get a chance at the end to win. Damn Luckeyes. 
    Plummer, ASU's awesome QB was very mobile, so try some options or scrambles, 
    running out of bounds each time to conserve some clock.

    1997 Nebraska at 1997 Missouri: November 8, 1997
    -> Nebraska 45, Missouri 38 <-
    Nebraska: Overall B+, Offense A-, Defense B+, Special Teams B
    Missouri: Overall B+, Offense B+, Defense B+, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: The #1 Nebraska Cornhuskers rolled into town to face off with the 
    Missouri Tigers late in the 1997 season. When all was said and done, Nebraska 
    clawed its way to a 45-38 overtime victory thanks in part to a 4th down 
    desperation, kick-ball deflection pass touchdown, which sent the game into OT 
    for Nebraska. Your job is to take control of Nebraska, down 38-31. There's a 
    little over a minute left, the ball is on your own 33 yard line. Can you keep 
    Nebraska's national title hopes alive?
    
    How to Win: *sigh* Now I got to use 97 Nebraska too? Oh well. You start on the 
    33, so you need to score a TD here. Not right away, of course, because you 
    have a minute left, so do some short, controlled passes to the sidelines, and 
    then run the ball in for a TD. Overtime is another issue, because Missouri has 
    a super good offense and solid defense. Try to contain their quick QB and put 
    man coverage on their receivers. On offense, Scott Frost is a great scrambler, 
    and Nebraska was an option team, so do a lot of those.

    1997 Florida State at 1997 Florida: November 22, 1997

    Florida State: Overall B, Offense B, Defense B, Special Teams A-
    Florida: Overall B, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: The #1 ranked Florida State Seminoles traveled to Gainesville in 
    1997 to face off with their bitter in-state rivals, the Florida Gators. The 
    game featured two of the best run defenses in college football. FSU was ranked 
    1st and the Gators were ranked 2nd. Those rankings didn't mean much for the UF 
    star running back. He wound up with 162 yards and 4 touchdowns including the 
    game winning score with only minutes to play. Can you lead the Gators all the 
    way down the field to score the winning TD?
    
    How to Win: Here's the situation: 2:45 to go, ball on own 20, 2 timeouts 
    remaining. Now, this is not that hard to do because you have tons of time 
    remaining. The FSU run defense was awesome, but then again, UF's running back 
    was killing them. I ran for 28 yards on my first snap! Try the deep pass once 
    in a while to fool the defense, but you don't want to let FSU back on the 
    field with a chance to win the game. Wuerrfuel was a great passer, and UF's 
    running game killed FSU, so this is not hard to do at all.

    1998 Michigan State at 1998 Ohio State: November 7, 1998
    -> Michigan State 28, Ohio State 24 <-
    Michigan State: Overall B, Offense B, Defense B, Special Teams B+
    Ohio State: Overall B, Offense B, Defense B, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: On November 7, 1998, the Buckeyes came into their home game 
    against Michigan State as 4 TD favorites. And rightfully so, they were ranked 
    #1 and the Spartans were an average, middle of the road Big 10 team. 
    Everything seemed to fall in place as the 1st half ended with the Buckeyes 
    leading 24-9. But things started to fall apart in the 2nd half. Five FGs by 
    the MSU kicker led the way, giving them a 28-24 lead late in the 4th quarter. 
    Take control of OSU and see if you can lead them to victory in the final 
    minutes.
    
    How to Win: FINALLY a team I hate lost their #1 ranking and I have to win for 
    them? Goddamn I hate this stuff. Anyways, here's the situation. 1:39 to go, 
    ball on 49, 1st and 10. Not so hard to do, as the QB is pretty athletic and 
    has a decent arm, and you can even run the ball a few times because you have 
    one timeout and some decent time to work with. The halfback for OSU is just 
    awesome, so maybe throw some screens and run the ball a little. Passes to the 
    sideline help as well. The lack of a shotgun formation is the biggest problem 
    I had, but you should be able to overcome it like I did. I scored with 31 
    seconds to go and intercepted them. Good luck!

    Virginia Tech: Overall B-, Offense B-, Defense B, Special Teams B
    Syracuse: Overall B, Offense B, Defense B, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: The #12 Hokies traveled to the Carrier Dome to face off against 
    the #25 Syracuse Orangemen on November 14, 1998. The game went all the way 
    down to the wire. Down 21-6 at the half, Syracuse fought back to a 26-22 score 
    late in the 4th quarter. The Syracuse QB began vomiting on the field at the 
    start of that final drive. He drove them down to the Virginia Tech 13 yard 
    line. There's 5 seconds left, it's 4th and goal. Do you have what it takes to 
    pull out the win for the Orangemen?
    
    How to Win: Well, you only have one play and you need to go 13 yards for a TD. 
    Scramble around with McNabb until someone is open, then fire it in for a 
    touchdown hopefully. I like comeback routes, but make sure the receiver 
    doesn't come back too far. This one is kind of tricky but with McNabb's 
    ability, you should find someone open eventually.

    Ohio State: Overall B+, Offense B, Defense B, Special Teams A
    Miami: Overall B+, Offense B+, Defense B, Special Teams B+
    
    Description: Rarely do championship games live up to all the hype surrounding 
    them. The 2003 Fiesta Bowl "bucked" that trend and produced one of the most 
    exciting college football games of all time. #1 Miami is trailing #2 Ohio 
    State, 17-14, with 3 seconds left. The Canes need a 40-yard FG to send the 
    game into overtime. Can you handle the pressure?
    
    How to Win: Well, you need to kick the field goal. Once you do, you'll be in 
    overtime. Play a lot of run defense, blitzes and stuff, to shut down the run. 
    On offense, Use Dorsey with a lot of short passes a lot for an easier time 
    scoring on the tough OSU defense.

    Getting Connected: This is just a quick overview on how to get connected to 
    NCAA 2005 online. You need an ISP, a network adapter, a memory card with 512 
    KB free space, and an ethernet cable if you're using DSL or cable internet or 
    something along those lines. Just follow the instructions the network adapter 
    provides, then go to "Play Online" in Game Modes of NCAA 2005. It should hook 
    you right in.
    
             ---------------------
             | 4.1 | RANKINGS    |
             ---------------------
    
    After each online game you play, you will get points added or deducted. The 
    formula for determining this is the rank of the opponent you faced, your rank, 
    and what the final score was. If you beat a highly ranked player by a lot of 
    points, you can expect to get a ton of ratings points. I always make sure to 
    play decent players, so even if I lose, I won't lose too much rating points.
    
    How do you check your rating points? Go to stat book in the online lobby, then 
    click "top 100". Scroll all the way down past the top 100, and you will see 
    your name in red. It will provide you with your record, average score, average 
    opponent rank, and how many points you have. Once you gain around 650, you 
    will be ranked. At the time of this writing, I am 9-1 with a 8065 average 
    opponent rank (32-9 average score), so I have over 800 points.
    
    You can also check out other statistics in the stat book. You get a variety of 
    different categories to choose from, including win/loss record, yards per 
    game, and sacks. You can see how you compare to the top 50, in all-time or 
    weekly. I have never made any of these lists yet, but I plan to one day, and 
    it's always fun to see how I compare.
    
             ---------------------
             | 4.2 | CHEESERS    |
             ---------------------
    
    Cheeses are the biggest problem I encounter while playing this game online. It 
    can be a lot of fun, but if you encounter a cheeser, it suddenly becomes a 
    whole lot more frustrating, and less fun. Now, you may be wondering exactly 
    what a cheeser is, and how to stop them. That's why I have this section, so 
    you can recognize the problem and then solve it easily.
    
    Now, what is a cheeser? Simple. A cheeser is someone who runs the same play 
    over and over, usually involving the quarterback scramble, or someone who does 
    cheap things like switching a tight end in for a speed receiver, so a 
    linebacker can't cover them. These things are extremely cheap, and they expect 
    you not to be able to stop it.
    
    Fortunately, I am here to tell you how to stop each of their cheesing habits. 
    The main thing is the running quarterback. Usually, if you see Kansas State or 
    Virginia Tech, you know they're going to run a lot. Therefore, run 3-4 Spy 3 
    every play. Change the spy into a strong safety with lots of speed (Hey, he 
    asked for it), and then boom, you really won't have to worry about that any 
    more. Any spy defenses work well, as does Dime Fire Green. You want them to 
    throw the ball.
    
    If someone decides to put a speed receiver in for tight end or whatnot, the 
    only way to really counter them is to do the same thing back to them. Put a 
    strong safety on that new speed receiver. If someone is throwing to the same 
    person every play, do a Cover defense to match the distance of the throw (Like 
    I had someone doing long bombs to Fitzgerald every play.. he quit after my 3rd 
    straight user pick in Cover 4). 
    
    The BIG problem I encounter is these idiots who think they're so good by 
    running no-huddle all game in an attempt to score as many points as possible. 
    What I like to do is have my audibles set for Cover 2, Cover 3, Cover 4 (all 
    Nickel), 3-4 Spy 3, and 4-4 Mad Robber. Bring out Mad Robber once in a while 
    if he doesn't go in shotgun, that usually leads to a sack because he doesn't 
    see the blitz coming. 
    
    The thing I usually do, however, when I see a cheeser, and I hate to say it, 
    is that I quit/disconnect. I hate to do it, but it has to be done sometimes. I 
    hate running no-huddle defenses all game trying to stop a 95 speed quarterback 
    who scrambles every play. That is not the way football is meant to be played, 
    and sometimes you should just get out of the situation and let them cheese on 
    someone else. That's only if they're one of those idiots who run no huddle all 
    game then pretend that they're "ballas" and can't be beat. 
    
    I just played someone who used LSU, then subbed in for their backup 
    quarterback. He stayed in shotgun all game, did no huddle every play, and ran 
    about four plays: QB Draw, HB Draw, Option to the right, and short pass. It 
    was very annoying, and after taking a 7-0 lead in the 2nd quarter, I quit vs. 
    him. I proved to him I could beat him, and I didn't want to take any more of 
    that stupid crap. It's not about winning or losing, it's about having fun, and 
    I will always say defending the same plays for an hour is not fun, win or 
    lose. (And I would have won, that offense is easy to stop).
    
             ------------------
             | 4.3 | QUITTERS |
             ------------------
    
    I hate quitters. Quitters are people who will just quit on you in the middle 
    of a game if they lose. There is not much you can do about this, other then 
    either choosing to end the game and not getting credit for it, or finishing 
    the game off and getting credit for the final score. It's always fun to run it 
    up on the computer once a person leaves.. and also, you sometimes will need to 
    wait for the other player to sign back in before you get credit for the win, 
    so be patient.
    
             --------------------------------
             | 4.4 | HOW TO HAVE FUN ONLINE |
             --------------------------------
    
    The best way to have fun online is to simply join a league or an established 
    board with lots of veteran players. The EA Sports message board is not the way 
    to go, because there are a LOT of whiners and complainers on that board, and 
    they don't really add to the fun factor of the game at all. A good place to 
    start is the "Madden Mania" message boards, located at www.maddenmania.com 
    There are a lot of cool people there who definitely play straight. You'll see 
    me there from time to time too.
    
    Another way is by establishing a list of trusted people who will give you a 
    good game. That's the beauty of the EA Messenger. I don't even go into the 
    lobby any more, because I have a list of cool people, people on AIM, and the 
    MaddenMania.com boards. That's three places to go to find a fun, straight game 
    right there.
    
    Another important thing, and one that took me a while to establish, is to not 
    let cheesers get you down too much. Sure, they're a little annoying, but 
    what's the point of letting them make you mad? It's only a game, and running 
    3-3-5 is the best way to confuse crappy players like that anyways.
    
             ---------------------
             | 4.5 | TOURNAMENTS |
             ---------------------
    
    Tournaments can be a lot of fun. In it, you select a team, then wait around 
    for the tournament to start, and play other people in the tournament, winner 
    advances, loser goes home. However, I only advise playing in a tournament with 
    people you know, for two reasons. One, a lot of people like to quit, and two, 
    it takes forever for a tournament to finish sometimes, and it adds to your DNF 
    percentage if you do not finish. Therefore, it's wise to just play with people 
    you know.
    
             ----------------------
             | 4.6 | ONLINE MODES |
             ----------------------
    
    Besides the typical regular ranked and unranked games, there are two special 
    challenges EA added to make the online mode even more fun and addictive. They 
    are OT Drill and Even Teams.
    
    OT Drill: Basically, you start off in OT automatically against your opponent, 
    and the objective is to win an OT game. OT rules are simple, you start on the 
    opponent's 25 and you have to either score a TD or FG, and hope the opponent 
    does worse than you do. It's really a lot of fun and addictive.
    
    Even Teams: Sounds like it should. Your teams are evenly matched, so now San 
    Jose State's cornerbacks are as good as Oklahoma's wide receivers. A lot of 
    rank cheaters use this mode to really increase their rank quickly, so watch 
    out.
    
             --------------------
             | 4.7 | ONLINE FAQ |
             --------------------
    
    1. When I challenge a player, the game freezes after they accept. How can I 
    fix this?
    A: The answer is a little crazy, thanks to a stupid glitch EA incorporated 
    into the game. You need to remove your EA Sports Profile from your memory 
    card, or just load the game without a memory card. That's the only way to fix 
    the problem.
    
    2. What do the medals and trophies mean?
    A: Medals and trophies are given if you complete various goals in online mode, 
    like playing with every top 25 team.
    
    3. How do people get to 200-1 and records like that?
    A: They play themselves using PS2's. There's a lot of cheaters online and it's 
    best to just ignore them as best as possible.
    
    4. Is it true that even teams pretends the teams are not evenly matched, when 
    it comes to rankings?
    A: Yes. I hope EA fixes that in 2006.
    
    5. How often does EA delete cheaters?
    A: Once every few months.
    
    6. Can I play with my named roster online?
    A: Sure can, just load it up before going online!
    
    7. Can I use campus challenge online?
    A: Nope, sadly you can't.
    
    8. Hey, how come I can't use my custom playbook online?
    A: Sadly, EA decided to ditch this awesome feature. I hope it returns in 2006.
    
    9. Can you still play NCAA 2004 online?
    A: As of the time of this writing, December 13 2004, yes you can. Crazy, huh?

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Those who follow college football somewhat closely know that Air Force is, for 
    the most part, an option based team. This means the playbook relies heavily on 
    the wishbone attack, with the FB being a big part of it. Triple options and 
    options work best, and make sure to throw in some option passes to keep the 
    defense honest. Defense isn't anything special, but the secondary is way 
    better than the run defense, so focus on a lot of 5-2 and 4-3 alignments, 
    since the secondary can hold its own.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Akron is a team with a decent amount of weapons to compete in the MAC, but not 
    enough defense to really be an elite team. However, they are definitely better 
    than you may expect. Their quarterback is pretty reliable, with decent arm 
    strength and accuracy, plus option plays work well in the type of system they 
    use. The spread offense makes the defense think pass, which is the perfect 
    time to sneak in some runs to an unsuspecting defense.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Alabama used to be known for its running attack, but with the emergence of 
    Brady Croyle at quarterback, they are now a more aggressive passing team, and 
    make sure to use that to your advantage when you use them. The running game is 
    solid as well, with a pair of decent backs, so keep the defense honest and mix 
    in the plays a lot. Options don't work well, so try a lot of counters and 
    dives. Mix in the FB as well. On defense, it's all about consistency and 
    blitzing. Alabama relies heavily on blitzing from all sides, so mix in a lot 
    of blitzes with conservative coverage. Special teams is one of the top in the 
    nation, so no worries there.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Arizona, a once prestigious program, has fallen on hard times in recent years, 
    mainly because of their erratic play under embattled former coach John 
    Malkovic. Now with new coach Stoops running the team, things could get better, 
    but the change is not immediately evident in NCAA 2005. While they are not a 
    terrible team, they are not very good either. The ratings they were given are 
    very friendly, as the team is slow and not very physical. The receivers get 
    rattled easily and the quarterback is not the greatest. Blitz a lot if you use 
    them and use their great fullback to your advantage.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Arizona State has always been one of those teams that have been hovering right 
    around greatness, posting respectable numbers every year. They have a great 
    quarterback, Andrew Walter, who knows how to make plays, mostly by throwing. 
    His speed is very mediocre so don't expect to get into a lot of option and 
    running situations when he is involved. The running game is pretty solid and 
    the wide receivers are adequate. The real star is Walter. The defense is 
    pretty alright, with a slow defensive line but great secondary. Use the 4-3 a 
    lot with blitzes to take pressure off the defensive line.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Arkansas has one advantage: Their quarterback. Matt Jones is pretty 
    outstanding, with great speed and decision making, and a decent arm. 
    Definitely use a lot of shotgun and I-Formations and utilize this with option 
    runs and draw plays. You can really keep the defense off balance if you use 
    him right. Speaking of defense, Arkansas's is pretty solid on the defensive 
    line and secondary, but the linebackers could use a little work. 4-3 is 
    definitely what I recommend here, with a base Cover 2 being their main 
    strength in passing situations.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    The Indians are one of my friend's favorite team, but they sadly aren't 
    terribly good in this game. When you use them, it's best to use the spread 
    passing game, with lots of short passes, like slants, crosses, and screens, to
    take pressure off the offensive line, which could use a little bit of work. 
    Running wise, the option attack is pretty worthless, due to the slow speed of 
    the quarterback, so run a lot of draw plays and mix in some fullback dives on 
    occasion. The option run on occasion will also fool the defense, so don't let 
    the QB's speed get you down too much. ASU doesn't blitz much in real life, but 
    you can if you want. It may help take pressure off their weak defensive line.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Army in this game is worthless, like they are in reality, sadly. They used to 
    be so good, but since they went to their traditional spread offense crap, 
    instead of the option like the other academies, they have failed. You should 
    use a Navy or AF playbook when you use Army if you want to have any chance of 
    winning. The FB is great, so use him a lot. On defense.. well, Army doesn't 
    blitz much in real life, but you HAVE to here if you want to have a chance of 
    winning. Good luck, you'll need it.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Auburn completed an amazing run to a SEC title and undefeated season this 
    year, it's too bad the game thinks they're a 8-5 disappointment from last 
    year, because Auburn is nothing too special. But their running backs, Cadillac 
    Williams and Ronnie Brown, are of course two of the best in the country, and 
    with a steadily improving and dangerous Jason Campbell at quarterback, option 
    plays and draw plays with the occasional deep bomb may be too much for the 
    opponent to overcome. When you use them, make sure to blitz a lot as well.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Ball State isn't really that good of a team, but they do hold one important 
    edge over their opposition. That being simply the massive size of their 
    receivers. Seriously, Ball State has two of the biggest receivers in the 
    entire game, and the other one rocks too! So, use the ace formation a lot and 
    spread the receivers out to create mismatches in the secondary. If you're 
    playing a similarly ranked team, they will have issues, I promise. 
    Defensively, send some linebackers on blitzes to create pressure on the 
    quarterback, as they're fairly weak on the defensive line side of the ball.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Baylor is not really that good of a team at all, sadly. They're one of the 
    weaker teams in the Big 12 conference, yet they still got surprisingly good 
    ratings for some reason. Their quarterback is fairly good, I watched him in 
    the OU/Baylor game the past year (Baylor hung around for a while, honestly!) 
    and he impressed me with his poise in the pocket and ability to scramble a 
    lot. That's why I prefer running an option-based offense when I use Baylor, 
    for best success.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    The Broncos are a great team to use, as their offensive skill players are 
    excellent. The quarterback, Dinwiddie, is an outstanding player with good 
    passing skills and nice speed. I advise using him a lot, especially if you 
    like to use a spread offense. A spread offense with option runs and shotgun 
    plays will be VERY hard to stop if you are using Boise State. Defensively, 
    play the 3-4 and 4-3 a lot, with man coverage on the corners as the corners 
    are pretty competent.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Boston College is a pretty good team to use in this game. Their halfback is 
    pretty good, and Peterson is a good QB with good leadership skills. Use the 
    Ace offense and mix in a lot of pass plays with counters and draws to really 
    fool the defense. Defensively, Boston College has one of the strongest 
    defensive lines in the game, featuring an awesome left end, and their 
    linebackers are good too. Their defensive backs are fantastic, as well. 
    They're really fun to use against other B teams.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Omar Jacobs to Cole Magner is one of the best QB to WR combinations in the 
    entire game, so using Bowling Green requires you to get familiar with WR #21 
    pretty quickly. The other receivers are solid, and the running backs are 
    definitely a strength as well. Omar Jacobs is a great quarterback, with 
    outstanding speed, so use the option a lot to really cause the opposing 
    defensive coordinator headaches and nightmares. Defensively, play the 3-3-5 
    Zone defense a lot, mixed in with some blitzes to throw off the timing of the 
    opposing offense.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Wow, they got an "all" rating of 47 somehow. They are not a very good football 
    team. If you wish to use them, use the option a lot, and make sure to get it 
    to their receiver as much as possible. He's the only one that can really make 
    plays on this team. As for defense, run a lot of 4-3 Zone because the 
    secondary can't handle man coverage too well. Timed blitzes, like zone blitzes 
    occasionally, may confuse the opponent as well.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    The Hornets out of the SWAC are another terrible team, maybe even worse than 
    Alabama A+M amazingly enough. They really only have two good players on the 
    offense, and that's the QB and top WR. The running game and offensive line are 
    severely lacking, so running the ball effectively will be tough. Defensively, 
    don't blitz much. The defensive line is surprisingly adequate, so play a lot 
    of zone coverage and try to get your opponent to make some costly mistakes in 
    the passing game.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Wow, a team with an offense rating of D+, what a freaking concept. This is 
    because of their star wide receiver, who has 96 speed, 97 acceleration, and 76 
    catching. That's right. Not bad for a division IAA player, his speed is super 
    fast, so make sure to get him the ball a lot. He is definitely a playmaker and 
    a difference maker. On defense, the 3-3-5 Stack confuses the opponent and 
    doesn't cause too many matchup problems. Alcorn State is not a bad team at 
    all, all things considered.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Holy wow, a D rated DIAA team, it only took until the 4th team to find someone 
    this high! Appalachian State is a pretty decent, although unspectacular, team. 
    Offensively, use the west coast and power styles, a mixture of both will 
    confuse the offense. No one really stands out offensively so mix it up. On 
    defense, run 3-4 because the defensive line is pretty reliable, and the 
    linebackers are the heart of the defense. You may even be able to get away 
    with man coverage and blitzing with this defense.

    DESCRIPTION
    
    Blah blah blah, this team is like, the 4th best team in Arkansas anyways. They 
    use the I-Form/Flexbone style playbook, so make sure to utilize it with a lot 
    of passes to tight ends and fullbacks, with FB dives and triple options mixed 
    in. You can really do a lot of stuff with this kind of offense, which makes it 
    fun to use. Defensively, run the 4-4 and put some pressure on the QB to make 
    up for a weak secondary.. some of the linebackers are better at coverage than 
    the corners and safeties to begin with anyways, amazingly enough!

    Campus challenge is something that has been around for a while in the NCAA 
    series, and is one of the aspects that I truly enjoy about the series. You 
    will get a complete rundown of the mode here, ranging from how to play it, to 
    how scoring works, and what you get when you succeed.  
    
             ---------------------
             | 6.1 | HOW TO PLAY |
             ---------------------
    
    Campus challenge is really not that hard to play at all. All you have to do is 
    turn the campus challenge option on (by going to the game options screen), and 
    then play a game. What is campus challenge exactly? It's a mode where you can 
    complete different goals, like scoring 21 points in a game, and get points 
    rewarded for completing these goals. You can then buy pennants, which unlock 
    cheat codes, hidden teams, new stadiums, and more. Fun, huh?
    
             -----------------
             | 6.2 | SCORING |
             -----------------
    
    You do get different rewards based on how difficult the goal is, and what 
    level of difficulty you are playing on. For instance, you will see that you 
    only get 2 points for completing a Level 1 goal in JV, but 8 in Heisman.
    
    Here is what you get, points wise, for each Level goal you complete in Campus 
    Challenge.
    
    Level 1: JV - 2, Varsity - 4, All American - 6, Heisman - 8
    Level 2: JV - 3, Varsity - 6, All American - 9, Heisman - 12
    Level 3: JV - 4, Varsity - 8, All American - 12, Heisman - 16
    Level 4: JV - 5, Varsity - 10, All American - 15, Heisman - 20
    Level 5: JV - 6, Varsity - 12, All American - 18, Heisman - 24
    
    Here are the tasks you must complete for each level. Note some lower Level 
    tasks are harder to complete than higher Level ones for some reason!

    | 7.0 |                       FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS                     |

    Here are some questions I think are asked a lot, and the answers to them. Such 
    a complex section, I know.
    
    1. Why does my wide receiver drop so many passes?
    A: That's the biggest problem with this game, dropped passes. I advise turning 
    the WR Catching slider up in the settings screen to avoid this for the most 
    part, although they'll still drop passes anyways.
    
    2. How come my player's ratings are fluctuating so much during the game?
    A: That's one of the new "features" EA decided to incorporate into this game. 
    Now, your players will get rattled or get better during a game, improving or 
    decreasing their rating at alarming rates. Fun, huh?
    
    3. What's the worst DIA team in the entire game?
    A: The game counts FIU as one, so I'd have to go with them. They are awful.
    
    4. Why are the BCS rankings so erratic in dynasty?
    A: Realism? ;) I really have no idea, but it is frustrating.
    
    5. How can I get my school higher in the HFA department?
    A: Win consistently for several years. Their HFA meter will go up slowly each 
    year.
    
    6. Can I switch to any school I want during a dynasty?
    A: No, another team has to make you an offer first. Or you can try to pursue a 
    job, but chances are they might not make you an offer or have a coach already 
    in place.
    
    7. How can I recruit better players to my university?
    A: Well, I got an email asking me about receivers. If you want better 
    receivers, change your gameplan and throw the ball a lot more. Receivers and 
    quarterbacks love that and their interest will increase. You basically have to 
    pitch what they want and show that you can offer it.

    - EA Sports for producing this game. Another awesome game, despite the insane 
    challenge to start out.
    
    - Prima Games (that's right!) for providing me with some team statistics. 
    Thanks dudes.
    
    - The dude that sold me the memory card with all the names of players already 
    pre-installed. Thanks dude. <3
    
    - The internet for the DIAA and classic team rosters.
    
    - GameFAQs code section so I could at least find some of the pennants I was 
    missing.
    
    - My few FAQ friends for supporting me, yadda yadda. Nick, for not getting too 
    mad when I kick his ass in FAQ competitions. Rich, for providing some weird 
    comic relief when I get upset or lose motivation.

             | 8.2 | OTHER INFORMATION |
             ---------------------------
    
    You can check out all of my other guides on GameFAQs, which will hopefully 
    include a very sexy Star Ocean 3 guide soon. I can't wait to finish that 
    thing. I did guides for a lot of Final Fantasies, as well as some random 
    Castlevania and wrestling games, and both Tales of Destiny games. Check them 
    out!
    
    And there's always Tales of Symphonia to look forward to...
    
    I appreciate any information you can contribute, especially to the dynasty 
    mode section, as that was a nightmare, as well as stuff I missed, 
    walkthrough, etc. Anything can help.
    
    Also, feel free to email any game tips, as I may add a game tips section in 
    the future.
    
    Any errors and omissions that you may see can be corrected if you inform me of 
    them. I'll also credit you, if your error or omission is actually correct and 
    worth an update for me to fix. I am somewhat busy, you know.
    
    That's about it. If anyone would like me to add anything, you can always email 
    me. 
    
    AIM: JuanDixonFor3
    MSN: mcfa4834@bellsouth.net
    YIM: mcfaddenvg
    
    If you contact me on one of the instant messengers, and I do not respond, it
    probably means I am busy. I am always talking with my girl, and friends, so
    sometimes I just ignore some instant messages from people I do not know. Be
    nice, and I will talk to you, just don't come out and ask the question and be
    all rude if I do not respond in five seconds, otherwise I probably will just
    block you. I will answer all e-mails about the game, however.
    
    You can contact me by emailing me at penguin_faqs@yahoo.com
    
    One last note: Only email me about the game at penguin_faqs@yahoo.com, all 
    emails about NCAA Football 2005 sent to my other e-mail addresses 
    will be deleted and/or ignored. Thanks to all those that have emailed me so 
    far, I appreciate it!
    
    1. Check my email backlog. If it's filled up, you may have to wait a while 
    before you get a response.
    
    2. I check my email once in a while. Please wait for a response, because I 
    will respond to all emails.
    
    3. Please read my guide before asking questions, thats why I have a FAQ and 
    Reader Tips section.
    
    4. I will only post your question/tip in my guide if it is good, and has not 
    been answered in this guide.
    
    Also, I have AIM and Yahoo. My AIM name is JuanDixonFor3, but PLEASE do not 
    harass me with annoying questions or I'll block you. I only wish to chat with 
    people. My Yahoo is mcfaddenvg but I don't go on too much.

             | 8.3 | REVISION HISTORY |
             --------------------------
    
    v0.08 - May 17, 2005 - 205.1K - Lol, whoops. I'm back now with a few more team 
    updates, although I can't actually add any more rosters yet. I'll have to find 
    them online somehow, or I may just call this project dead and wait for 2006 to 
    come around.
    
    v0.07 - December 16, 2004 - 198.2K - Yes, I have updated 3 days in a row 
    again. Last time I did this, I stopped working on it for four months.. but 
    with my INSANE current motivation and the fact that adding rosters is easy 
    (just time consuming and tedious), I should be rolling for the next month. I 
    added in 5 DIAA team descriptions, so the entire A section for both divisions 
    is now done, but I got lazy/back hurts/lack of sleep, so I only finished 3 of 
    the 5 rosters. I also decided to take out classic teams and focus on playbooks 
    instead. I am happy with the way things are going with this guide.
    
    v0.06 - December 15, 2004 - 172.8K - Now that this guide is done, I can focus 
    on the rosters. I added three of them: Arkansas State, Army, and Auburn, with 
    more to come tomorrow. I also added in a FAQ that I got asked via email and 
    also decided to eventually make this guide better by adding playbook guides 
    and other stuff.
    
    v0.05 - December 14, 2004 - 146.3K - Holy cow. First things first, I was going 
    to keep updating in the same style as before, but I got frustrated with how 
    long each team took. Therefore, I decided to remove the old team listings and 
    go with rosters. I then decided to finish every other section, put in the 
    rosters for the teams I already did, and voila, finished guide. All it needs 
    is rosters now, and the bounty is mine. Yay me!
    
    v0.04 - August 9, 2004 - 113.9K - Added in Arizona and added in the dynasty 
    mode section. Slowly getting it done, team lists will be the real problem now. 
    3 updates in 4 days WTF?
    
    v0.03 - August 8, 2004 - 89.2K - I'm back on the ball now. I want to get this 
    guide done or at least complete enough that it's good. I added in Alabama.. 
    then separated 2.3 into two sections, added in way more info to 2.3, then did 
    a complete home field advantage section which was fun to write. More to come 
    tomorrow.
    
    v0.02 - August 6, 2004 - 67.8K - Sorry for late update. Added a new team 
    (Akron) and completely changed the format of team listings.. added in team 
    description, names, positions, tendencies, etc. to each player, so now each 
    player has 3 lines instead of 1. More work for me, WAY more, but should be 
    worth the effort. I ADDED IN CREDITS TOO, WHOO. CALL THIS GUIDE COMPLETE NOW, 
    CJC.
    
    v0.01 - July 17, 2004 - 39.6K - Not submitted yet. Finally started. Added in 
    game basics, one team (Air Force), started online mode guide, and finished 
    entire format.

    Thanks for reading my NCAA Football 2005 guide. Sorry it took so long to get 
    almost done, but I had a lot of other things to do and this guide seemed like 
    it would take forever, but I pushed myself extra hard and got it done. Hope 
    you enjoyed this great guide for such an awesome football game. Till next 
    time!
