    Stupid NCAA 08 Tricks

    I simmed another season tonight using the sim engine on the PS2. I just set the system to simulate the entire season and walked away until it was done. The results were a bit shocking. I'm beginning to wonder if the PS2 version of NCAA 08 was coded at EA by monkeys.



    Nothing wrong with this image, I just had to laugh at myself for not knowing that Temple joined the MAC this year...

    But here's where it gets sticky..



    They must be adopting Iowa's method of getting into bowls.

    At least ISU did well.





    And nothing like a little bit of BCS controversey.

    For the grand finale, remember how those 5-7 teams finished?

    Wow, that's a lot of weird stuff for the first time ever simming on 08. Looks like EA abanded the current gen crowd. Ron Prince wins coach of the year with a 5-7 record lol.

    Re: Stupid NCAA 08 Tricks

    Just out of sheer curiosity... The fact that we're playing Virginia in a bowl game - does that make it the Gator Bowl?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    No, I think it was the Armed Forces Bowl out in Fort Worth, TX. They must've renamed that bowl from something else?

    Yep, the only losses in that sim were Texas, OU, and Kansas State. ISU had beaten NU on the road when they were enjoying a #6 ranking and a 4-0 start.

    Mmm, I'll take it.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
