    + 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.

    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
    has, all 6 offensive playbooks, and the 5 defensive playbooks.
    
    To find your teamís playbook, check the list (sorted alphabetically), then
    scroll down and find the respective playbooks (off. #/def. #).  For more

    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.

    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.

    Defensive Plays:
    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.

      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:

    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.
