    Madden or NCAA this year? I'm leaning towards Madden as it has the new engine that NCAA won't get till next year.

    Even if I had a ps3 I would get Madden still. The new engine and the ability to play as your favourite team/players still wins it for me.

    Sup people, need some advice here. Went to my year 13 meeting today and they told me to aim at a BBB/BBC uni. Football is a priority for me as well as location/nightlife. What universities could I get into (300 points or less) that has a decent/good football team and decentish nightlife.
    At the moment I have chosen:
    1)Hertfordshire - 300 UMS Points needed for Business. National Champions. Average nightlife but near London.
    2)Plymouth - 260 UMS for Business. Decent team. Decent nightlife according to TSR.
    3)Soton Solent - 240 points min. for Business. Average team, good nightlife, banter with proper Southampton.
    Need a few more uni suggestions please (no teams that run DW btw).
    Cheers

    Maybe NTU or Derby would be the same sort of standard. Coventry would too and will have good coaching and some good players but probably a terrible team overall.

    Could go NTU but I'm trying to get away from Midlands. Could go Derby as I know Brammer their QB (I play for Jets juniors). I'm from Coventry so couldn't go there even though I know all the coaches. My dad is becoming their D co-ordinator this year.

    Preseason Result from last night.

    Packers 24 - 3 Chiefs.

    Bit worrying again from our first choice Offense. Rodgers didn't have much success, Harrell our backup QB answered some critics with 2 TD passes. Finishing pre-season with 2 wins after 2 early defeats isn't bad I suppose, but with a tough first game vs the 49ers, confidence isn't exactly sky high.

    Ha - bit of a rookie error to say the least from EA.

    The Bears have always as long as I've known had navy away pants.

    There have been a lot of complaints about the game. They took out co-op franchise mode, no fantasy draft... It seems silly to be removing features. They even removed contract negotiation with rookies. Thought it would be a good thing to have, considering the new rookie salary cap.
