+ A Ball Carrier a running back, a quarterback past the line of scrimmage, a
  receiver who has caught a pass, or a defender who has taken the ball away
  from the offense.

* In a Single Game, in the Beginner mode, laterals and handoffs are
  automatic.

# By everything, I mean it will do stuff on random.  Sometimes, it will stiff
  arm, and other times it will be a speed burst.  Kind of like the one-button
  feature in Madden '99.

  The manual states that the "X" button Super Tackles on Defense.  This may
  be a glitch in the game, or just my copy of it.  Please let me know if this
  happens when you play.

Kicking:
-  Press "A" to stop the arrow and aim the kick.
-  Press "A" to stop the power meter and determine how hard you'll kick the
   ball.  The ball will be snapped, and your kicker will begin his approach
   at this time.
-  Press "A" to determine which part of the ball you'll kick.  If you kick
   the lower part of the ball, the kick will go high, but not very far.  If
   you kick the upper part of the ball, it will go far, but not very high.
   If you do not press "A", this meter will randomly stop (does not apply to
   punts).
-  Your kicker will automatically kick the ball.
-  Like offense, "B" will call out "HUT" (does not apply to kickoffs)

Teams:
------
There are 97 teams from Division I, Division I-AA, and Division II in Super
Play Action Football.  Super Play Action Football does not have the NCAA
license symbol on it, so the real school names are not used.

On the team selection screen, these teams are split into 6 screens.  I've had
a little trouble finding teams' real names, since SPAF was made before the
NCAA's conference realignment.  If I made a mistake, please contact me.

Here are the list of teams on each screen, and the team's real name.

The question mark signifies that I am uncertain if I have the right real
name.  If you know the truth, let me know.

Rankings:
---------
There are 15 powerhouse teams.  If you use one of them, you WILL consistently
start in the Top 20, and probably end up Number 1 going into Bowl Week.  They
are:

St of Fla               St of Penn              L.A.,CA
South Cal               Alabama                 Auburn,Ala.
Florida                 Tennessee               A&M
Michigan                Miami,Fla               Wisconsin
Colorado                Nebraska                ND

If you are not happy with your ranking after your game, hit the RESET button.
WARNING!!  YOU WILL HAVE TO PLAY THAT GAME OVER AGAIN!!  After the game is
done, you'll get a different rank.  Don't be TOO greedy; you could go down.
And don't expect to go from 80 to 1 in one game either.  It won't happen.

Things that will help you go up in the ranks:
*  Winning. (of course)
*  Using a school with a good football reputation.
*  Playing (and beating) high ranked teams.
*  Good luck.

Things that will send you down the ranks:
*  Losing. (DUH!)
*  Using a school without a good football reputation.
*  Playing easy teams.
*  The polls screw you over and/or hate you.
*  Bad luck.

Bowl Games:
-----------
Bowl games, like teams, use fake, but similar names.  I've tried my best to
list each bowl's real name.  If you know the real bowl name, contact me.

Bowl Name         Real Name            Bowl Name         Real Name
---------         ---------            ---------         ---------
Violet Bowl       Rose Bowl            Oahu Bowl         Aloha Bowl
Banana Bowl       Orange Bowl          Franklin Bowl     John Hancock Bowl
Salt Bowl         Sugar Bowl           Patriot Bowl      ???
Wool Bowl         Cotton Bowl          Independent Bowl  Independence Bowl
Siesta Bowl       Fiesta Bowl          Smash Bowl        Blockbuster Bowl?
Alligator Bowl    Gator Bowl           Justice Bowl      Liberty Bowl
Pear Bowl         Peach Bowl           Fame Bowl         Hall of Fame Bowl
                                                         (now known as
                                                         Outback Bowl)
Lemon Bowl        Citrus Bowl?         USA Bowl          ???
Vacation Bowl     Holiday Bowl

The first bowl you get invited to is the most prestigious (best).

The three best bowls are the Violet Bowl, Banana Bowl, and the Salt Bowl.
The Banana Bowl is usually the National Championship game.  The Violet Bowl
can be the National Championship if the contestants (Big 10 and Pac 10
Champs) are Numbers 1 and 2.

If you get invited to the Violet Bowl, and neither you nor your opponent are
Number 1 in the polls, REJECT THE INVITATION!!  You should also get an
invitation to the Banana Bowl.  Take that one.  If you do not, reject all the
other invitations, and you'll get a second chance to get into the Violet
Bowl.

If you accept a bowl bid, it is not set in stone.  If you do not like your
bowl choice, just hit the reset button.  You can choose a different bowl.

Playbooks:
----------
At the College level, there are 6 offensive playbooks and 5 defensive
playbooks.  Below are all 97 teams and the combination of playbooks each one

Run Plays:
For run plays, I've listed the name of the play, and a brief description of
what happens.  There isn't much to run plays; the running back gets the ball,
and everyone else blocks for him.

Play                  Brief Description
-----------------     -------------------------------------------------------
Bootleg Left          after the Receiver on the right goes in motion, the QB
                      keeps the ball and rolls left
Change Up             the Fullback gets the handoff and runs to the right
                      side between the Tackle and the Tight End
Counter               the Halfback (on the left) takes the pitch and goes
                      right as several players block for him
Dive                  Fullback (middle Running Back) goes straight the middle
                      after the handoff
Double Reverse        The QB handoffs to a Receiver, who then gives the ball
                      to the HB
End Around            everyone blocks left after the QB hands off to the
                      Receiver (left) goes right
FG Fake Run           the offense lines up to kick a field goal, but the
                      Halfback (far right player) gets the handoff from the
                      holder and runs to the outside on the left side
Freeze                the Halfback runs just outside of the Tight End on the
                      right side after the handoff
Full House Left       Fullback (in the middle) follows the other 2 RB's to
                      the left side after he receives the handoff
Full House Right      Fullback (in the middle) follows the other 2 RB's to
                      the right side after he gets the lateral
Line Buck             Halfback takes the handoff and run it up the middle
                      between the center and the Guard on the right
Off Tackle            a handoff is given to the Halfback (right) as he takes
                      it through the line between the TE and Tackle on the
                      left side
Power Right           HB gets the handoff and squeezes in-between the Guard
                      and the Tackle on the right side
Power Slant           QB hands off to HB, who scrapes outside of the right
                      Tackle
Punt Fake Run         after lining up in punt formation, the Fullback takes
                      the snap and runs to the left side
QB Down Ball          the QB takes a knee after the snap
Quick Toss            a lateral to the HB (left RB), who follows the FB and
                      Receiver outside to the right
Single Wing Sweep     Halfback goes right after the lateral, just outside the
                      Tight End on that side
Sweep Left            HB (right RB) gets the lateral and follows in-between
                      the other two RB's
Sweep Right           the HB takes the pitch and goes right while the
                      Fullback provides a lead block for him
Wishbone Sweep        the Halfback on the left side goes way outside to the
                      left after the handoff

Pass Plays:
This is probably the biggest section.  All receivers will run one of the 13
patterns shown below:

    ^         /-\      /-\        \          /       \            /

*An In pattern goes to the QB's left.  An Out pattern goes to the QB's
right).

L stands for left.  A pattern with an L has the receiver going to his left,
i.e. the receiver hooks left in a 2L pattern.

R stands for right.  A patter with an R has the receiver going to his right,
i.e. the receiver slants right in a 5R pattern.

Patterns can be combined with a hyphen.  For example, the receiver first runs
a flag pattern, then a fly pattern in a 3-1.  This also works for "L" and "R"
patterns.

For each play, the name, QB's position and movement, and each of the
receivers' (from left to right) patterns are listed.  Pass plays can have
anywhere from 1 to 5 receivers.

*  If you look closely in the playbook, you'll see that the third pass
   receiver from the left is the RB on the right and the fourth one is the
   Tight End.
#  The order of the receivers is as follows:  1 is the left TE, 2 is the left
   RB, 3 is the right TE, and 4 is the right RB.
+  The order of the receivers is as follows:  1 is the TE, 2 is the left RB,
   3 is the leftmost Receiver on the right side of the line, and 4 is the
   rightmost Receiver

Option Plays:
An option play is just a play where the QB can decide who gets the ball.
Unlike a run, where only one person is the ball carrier, two or more players
can carry the ball in option plays.  An option play can also be a combination
of a run and a pass.

I have listed all the option plays, your best possible option, and what that
option is effective against.

On Defense, X-Y gives the number of defensive lineman and linebackers in the
formation.  For example, a 4-3 defense means there will be 4 DL's and 3 LB's.

+ A Ball Carrier a running back, a quarterback past the line of scrimmage, a
  receiver who has caught a pass, or a defender who has taken the ball away
  from the offense.

* In a Single Game, in the Beginner mode, laterals and handoffs are
  automatic.

# By everything, I mean it will do stuff on random.  Sometimes, it will stiff
  arm, and other times it will be a speed burst.  Kind of like the one-button
  feature in Madden '99.

  The manual states that the "X" button Super Tackles on Defense.  This may
  be a glitch in the game, or just my copy of it.  Please let me know if this
  happens when you play.

Kicking:
-  Press "A" to stop the arrow and aim the kick.
-  Press "A" to stop the power meter and determine how hard you'll kick the
   ball.  The ball will be snapped, and your kicker will begin his approach
   at this time.
-  Press "A" to determine which part of the ball you'll kick.  If you kick
   the lower part of the ball, the kick will go high, but not very far.  If
   you kick the upper part of the ball, it will go far, but not very high.
   If you do not press "A", this meter will randomly stop (does not apply to
   punts).
-  Your kicker will automatically kick the ball.
-  Like offense, "B" will call out "HUT" (does not apply to kickoffs)

Teams:
------
There are 28 NFL teams in Super Play Action Football.  They are divided into
6 screens on the team selection screen, with each page having one division,
like so...

New England Patriots    Pittsburgh Steelers     San Diego Chargers
New York Jets                                   Seattle Seahawks

As I gather more info on each team, I will create small sections for all 28
teams, listing their rosters, schedules, ratings, etc.

Rosters:
--------
Each team has 31 players on its team: 2 Quarterbacks, 4 Running Backs, 4 Wide
Receivers, 2 Tight Ends, 5 Offensive Linemen, a Punter, a Kicker, 4 Defensive
Linemen, 3 Linebackers, and 5 Defensive Backs.

Since SPAF doesnít have a NFLPA License, I donít have names to go with the
numbers.  Some are very obvious, like #20 on the Detroit Lions is Barry
Sanders.  Some arenít.  Until I have all the rosters, Iíll just list the
numbers for now.

The numbers with the positions are each playerís location on the depth chart.
#1 is first string, #2 second string, etc.  Running backs are restricted to
the backfield.  Wide Receivers and Tight Ends can be switched around any way
you want.  The general DB is your fifth defensive back.  He can play both
cornerback and safety.  Also, the #2 WR is also your Kickoff Returner.  So
you may want to switch around your receivers so you may want to put your
fastest receiver at that position.
