Glaring errors in NCAA 2005.

    I know a couple of these have already been mentioned, but I need to vent.

    1.) I started the second year of my dynasty today, and in the scheduling part, I wanted to add a first week game. I added Pittsburgh, because they are rated ok, yet I knew I would whoop their asses so I would have a chance to try out some of the freshmen. Plus, it's realistic that a team like Pittsburgh could be added to OSU's schedule in real life. Anyway, I go to play the game... and IT'S FUCKING SNOWING!!!!! IN AUGUST!!!!! WTF?! Like Dave Chappelle said, "Somebody fucked up!" I know the weather in Ohio can be messed up sometimes, but damn! If it snows here in August, I'd say we'd have a few more things to worry about than whether or not D'Andrea should be at DE.

    2.) The game after THE GAME problem. I haven't encountered this myself yet, but I would probably have to be restrained from chucking my Box out the window if I did run into this problem. This is blasphemy. It's great that they finally pulled their heads out of their asses and rotated teams like Illinois back onto the schedule, but at what cost?

    3.) Why in the hell can I never get online? I have connected successfully on about 10% of my attempts. EA bitched and bitched having Xbox's online play on their servers, and this is what we get? Good call, guys. M$ may be monopolistic and evil, but at least when it comes to online console gaming, they don't do a half-assed job like Sony and EA.

    I still think this is a great game, but why all the f-ups? EA has been making essentially the same game for years now. I realize that sports games work on a completely different timetable from other genres, but If they're only gonna take the time to make notable changes in the game every 4-5 years, shouldn't they be able to take the rest of their time to iron out all the stupid shit that slips through every year? Didn't they at least beta test this game?

    I had a kickoff after a TD go out at the 2. I expected the flag (Penalties are on) but no... Opponants ball at the 2.

    Wow. That is a big screw-up...

    I've noticed a few wierd errors like incorrect kick return statistics. I think the physics in the game are totally out of whack. Players jump too high and the ball bounces around like it's on the moon.

    One funny thing that I saw was after the Cincy punt returner muffed a punt, he walked off the field dejected only to be mercilessly berated by Jim Tressel.

    ive heard about this and let me tell didnt make me very happy. i heard it happens in the third year. im in the middle of recruiting right now after winning the NC in my first year. i win the NC...and i have like 10 people interested in

    i do like how they have a smaller amount of 5 star recruits however.

    How about the "light" celebration after the kicker kicks, and they like jump through eachother.

    Come to think of it, every celebration the player walks through another player and/or ref.

    I didn't have the game after THE GAME problem on my dynasty. I'm in my 4th year in Dynasty mode.

    I've had -0- problems recruiting players. In fact, I still think it's way too easy. I still land 8-15 5 star recruits in any given year, depending on how many points I put towards recruiting (usually 40%).

    I agree the ball bounces too much in the secondary. That is annoying. I had the ball bounce in the air 4 times after different defenders had tipped it. WTF?? It's kinda like a balloon.

    Yea, the refs are essentially not there in celebration camera angles.

    Overall I feel these issues are minor (aside from the bouncing ball) and the game is a BIG improvement over last year.

    Oh yea, I have -0- problem connecting to the PS2 online.

    Am I reading this correctly, the game has been out for less than a month and some of you are already in your FOURTH season?

    The players jumping (mostly computers) incredibly high is ridiculous, I have a guy beat buy 15 yards, but he can jump up and bat the ball down??

    I simulate a decent amount of games (the lesser games).

    I've played one season where I played every game but 2.

    The rest are about 50% simulated.

    btw, I just ran across the Game after the Game issue. It was Kansas State. :mad1:

    I know you can't change your conference schedule, but couldn't you remove K-State. I thought there was almost complete control over the non-conference schedule?

    I ran into a game after THE Game and I couldn't get rid of UAB because it would've put them under 11 games.

    This beats last year where I NEVER played a weather game in dynasty. I was in Rhode Island and it never once snowed or got cold. Very disappointing

    The BCS formula is wrong, but I know the game went out before they knew what was going to happen. But they don't have Boston College switch conferences after 2004. You still cant move teams around to create a super-conference for dynasty. Oh, and has anyone ever gotten someone to transfer to their school? I get 2-3 leaving every year, but none ever come in. I think TG2 wants to transfer to Troy, but he just doesn't know how.

    At least Matt Leinart is a left-handed QB this go-around.

    After my first year as Army coach - I got an offer to extend my contract 4 years, take a spot at arkansas or take a spot at UAB. I took the UAB job - wasn't ready to deal with the SEC yet. After I signed on and started the off season - I got 3 transfers, one from Alabama, one from NIU, and don't remember the other guy. All were decent players 70-85. Oh yeah...the other guy was a JUCO transfer. Infact 2 of them ended up starting for me until I got recruits that were even higher rated.

    Side note - I think I left the ARmy program in shambles. I didn't discipline hard enough early on as I turned off discipline assistance. When I turned it on after about the third game, I realized they wanted punishment much harsher than what I was doling out. I was given 1 or 2 quarters. They wanted 3 - 6 games!!! YIKES!. good thing they don't sanction the coach ;-)

    The most glaring error I've seen so far just happened this morning. I was looking through the weekly scores, and noticed that Texas had beaten Oklahoma.
