Usually pastapadre is the one I go to. Does every single school. He doesn't modify any stats just names. I didn't see a download from him yet but just go to his name everyday and check to see if he has a roster uploaded.
What is alabamas ranking compared to the teams they lost to? Mind going another season or two?
Sure, give me a little. Alabama started the season #3 I believe, and finished #12.
Sorry, I should have stated over all ranking. No rush, just whenever you have free time. I just want to make sure simulation doesn't still produce 4-6 losses for A+ rated teams like it did in 2012. So far, I don't like the results.
Welp, I accidentally simmed one week too far, so I can't go back and look at the schedules to see particular losses, but in year two:
Alabama went 11-3 (9-0 in the SEC) and finished #8. They have A+ offense and A- defense.
FSU went 4-7 (1-7 in the ACC). Ugh. They had A offense and A+ defense. Also Wake won the ACC.
Wisconsin won the national title over Oregon, and James White (other Wisconsin RB not named Montee Ball) won the Heisman.
how short quarters? 5 minute with accel clock would still be over 10-15...i find games taking half an hr if you want to actually have a reasonable # of possessions, etc.
i also hate how you can't really play competitive D most of the time when you play vs. other people. if you don't get a pick or a fumble you don't get a stop.

xbox...my roommate made a virtual pro...pretty fun feature. i messed around with h2h seasons a little and also made a UT...people on the latter are absurd.
And year 3:
Bama (A offense, A defense) goes 9-4 with losses to #24 FSU (52-17 lol), at Arkansas (24-17), at Texas A&M (34-13), and Kentucky (36-24). Finished ranked #14
FSU (A+ offense, A defense) goes 11-3 with losses at UConn (37-17), at Maryland (27-20), and vs. UVa in the ACCCG (38-28). Finished unranked.
Casey Pachall (TCU QB) wins the Heisman, Notre Dame (two losses) wins the national title over Washington, 28-23.
Thank you. You just saved me $60. At least these A to A+ rated teams aren't going 6-6, yet. In the 2011 version, an A+ school played like an A+ school in dyansty mode (0,1 or 2 losses a year). In 2012, those same teams went 9-4, 7-6 etc. It appears the 2013 version picked up where 2012 left off.
I personally love the NCAA games every year. I always play every game and recruit myself so I don't experience any of the simulation losses. I don't think the cpu has ever came close to beating me even on heisman. I love the dynasty modes and the recruiting. I don't play online much and hardly ever play road to glory or whatever it's called. I'm getting the game thursday after work! Can't wait!
If that's the dealbreaker to you, then I guess you probably shouldn't buy it. I kinda just let it roll because I don't sim my dynasty and whatever the other teams happen to be, that's just the way it is. The gameplay is definitely improved over 12, and from what I understand (don't want to get into dynasty without a set of rosters) the improvements to recruiting are sweet.
I simulate nearly the entire season (I'll play conference title and bowl game) and put my full attention into recruiting. Signing the #1 class every year and seeing poor results isn't appealing to me. The previous versions of the game weren't like this when suimulating. An A+ school actually performed well when simulated.
Anyone know of a PS3 username that typically (or is now) posting full rosters?
Sim seasons have been dead since the last gen consoles. I remember when like 4 of my friends and I would do sim seasons once and awhile and see who did the best. All we would do was recruit, when recruiting was fast and easy, and then adjust our coaching strategies based on our teams strengths and our opponent's weakness week in and week out. I just remember using GT's playbook and putting your run at 80% was the perfect playbook to build a shitty team into a good team when doing simulation. For some reason sim seasons loved GTs playbook and offensive style.

2011 is perfectly fine during simulation.
For the guys that play online, Nano blitzing is back. Guy did it to me the whole game. Couldn't even get enough time to throw a slant.
Unbelievable that EA hasn't patched that. Hopefully it's not in Madden.
What do you mean by "nano blitzing?" I've been doing pretty good online.
It's a glitch in the game where the DE shoots straight through the A gap untouched every time. They take one linebacker and put him on the hip of the DE. They take the middle linebacker and place him right behind the DT tackle and viola, sack or tackle for loss every time.
I've played 10 games and I've only come across one guy that did it.
You'll definitely know when you see it. The DE is in your backfield immediately.
On a good note....Rosters are DONE for Xbox 360! Download from rustyduck55
PSN mtemple93, I don't have the game yet so not sure how good they are but saw this on operation sports forum. Still waiting on the community roster from there, usually are the best rosters
also heard PSN EALegend35 has rosters too, not sure if they are the same or different

Anymore update on if the PS3 rosters listed here are legit?
I simmed the 1st season and went 11-3 losing to va tech by 2, clemson by 3 (it was 13-10 and ej got hurt trickett threw 4 picks) and then oklahoma by 10 in a bowl game finished the season at 8 and usc won it all. Ej threw for 3200 yards 24 tds and 10 picks. Greene lead the team in receiving with just over 1100 yards and 8 tds. Oleary had 7 tds rhodes also had 9 picks and reid had 3 ret tds. Craziest thing was probably florida ended with 4 wins and got annihilated in the fsu game 45 to 3.

Barkley threw for over 3500 had 32 tds and only 6 picks they went undefeated his pass accuracy was 99 at the end of the season.
These are good rosters. EALegend's are the same as mtemple's.
Do you plan on simulating anymore seasons? If so, post your results, if you would.
