Gives me time to buy a PS5. 
 

I really was not planning on buying one.

You literally can not find them

I don’t even care if any of the schools are real.    Just give me a dynasty mode.

In my best Conan/Andy Richter voice  “In the year two thousand twenty two....” Covid-53 has ravaged the land. The Soviet States of RetiredKirt has taken over the former states of Texas, Okla

All they need to do is copy and paste '14 and make few updates. I will be perfectly fine with that. I just want to play!

No. 

They need to get the engine from 2004. That was the best. Needs graphic and playbook updates and all, but that engine was the best.

YES. The one with Carson Palmer on the cover. That was probably my favorite. Or 2012.

2014 has some great features.  I wish recruiting was a bit harder, but the gameplay was great.  They also need more sophisticated defenses to stop the run option or make the RO read harder to identify on offense.

Yea the recruiting needs to be a bigger focus with more depth and challenge. It was nailed up above when it was said that staff moves need to bring more to the table. You can have different types that give advantages in ether coaching or recruiting or both if they are elite.

If you hire a OC that runs the triple option, in real life you’d see transfers or recruits not interested in that scheme. Let’s see something like that.

Huge rumored leaks about the new coaching career/dynasty mode.

Players will have their choice of bagmen, monkeys, stripper girlfriends to seal the recruiting deal.

Coaches will have to beware of past relationships and statements that aren’t PC in today’s society.

 You will have to win convincingly enough and pass the eye test to get past Notre Dame in the CFP.

Buyouts.

Booster Mode

Work your way up from early booster that donates a little and serves a bagman to eventually car dealership owner that "hires" players. Recruit new coaches while already having someone on campus. Fundraise for buyouts. Snitch on rival programs when they get too close, while trying not to get caught yourself...I think it's a HIT

They can call it the "It Just Means More" setting.

I want to have a twitter feature and you can set the players past as "clean" or "controversial". You can write your own apologies for any tweets from when you were 13 that may resurface as your player starts to enter Heisman finalist status.

Did anyone else here do the "punter hack" on Create A Prospect, or was that just me? 

Basically, I'd create a bunch of "punters" who were 6'5 225lbs with 99 speed, agility, receiving, tackling, and etc. but I would give them the lowest rating possible in punting and kicking. I recruit the crap outta them, and sure enough they're eager to sign with my program. 

THEN (while still in offseason mode) I change their positions. Suddenly my 1-star 40-rating punter becomes a 90+ rating true freshman at other positions.

Seems like alot of work when you could just edit your roster. If you’re gonna cheat, go big

My son has started playing madden and my old ncaa games recently. I showed him how to make all skill guys huge and linemen tiny. He thinks that is the stuff!

Once you began a dynasty, editing players was not possible. Your players would improve (or regress) from year to year. Some would leave for the NFL, and (I believe) some would transfer away.

I did make Lorenzan or whatever his name was... the old Kentucky QB.  6’5, 360 lbs.  I ran the triple option all of the time with him 😂

I made my one rules to make things harder. 
 

like only recruit 3 stars or only recruit players from your state.

or be a school like Stanford and only recruit guys who cared about academic prestige.

Exactly. The game was too easy. I did very similar things to make the game more challenging.
