    6.  CREDITS
    The purpose of this FAQ is to list all of the formations that
    are found in the game, according to team playbook name.
    This provides a handy reference, if you are looking for 
    particular formations to use when choosing which playbook
    you want for your team.
    2.  LEGEND
    Base Formations:
    Ace = Ace 
    FB = FlexBone
    I = I Form
    Pro = Pro Form
    SG = ShotGun
    ST = Strong
    WB = WishBone
    WK = Weak
    Special Formations:
    MaryI = Maryland I
    NOBack = No Back
    PowerI = Power I  
    Formation Versions:
    2BSl = 2BSlot
    5W = 5 Wide
    N = Normal
    Sl = Slot
    Sp = Spread
    Split = Split
    Ti = Tight
    Trp = Trips
    Tw = Twins
    Wide = Wide
    YTrp = Y-Trips
    The Chart is really straight Forward.  It basically shows you a mix of
    Base Formation, Special Formation, and Formation Version.
    This is how you read the playbooks:
    WK-N-Sl-TW Translates to Weak-Normal, Weak-Slot, Weak-Twins
    When you see a semicolon, that separates a formation from 
    the other formations.  
    There are a few of the special formations, that have no formation 
    versions. They are noted above in the "Legend" section.

    6.  CREDITS
    Credit goes out to UKFan, stephen@theleons.org, because on his
    website I saw the NCAA 2002 playbooks from last year, at
    Prior to posting this FAQ, I can say that in several locations you
    might be able to find this same information, since it is no
    great relevation, and it took no great thought on my part.  All it
    took was one and a half hours of my time to scroll through the
    playbook section portion of "My Profile" changing playbooks and scrolling
    through formations.  
    The information contained within this FAQ can probably only be 
    claimed as intellectual property by EA Sports, and maybe the NCAA.
    Posting what formations are included in the game is by no means an 
    indication that I am the first or last person to do this, but by
    submitting this faq myself, I say that I compiled this information
    on my own.
