Dynamic Commentary

This is a copy of a post I made earlier in response to how dynamic commentary could be used in the NCAA series without having to mention player backgrounds so as not to infringe on their amateur status. It's something I just thought of on a whim and I think this would improve presentation tremendously with just some minor tweaks to audio. The only problem, as Adam pointed out on these boards, art and AUDIO make up the most of disk memory. Enjoy nonetheless!


In a rivalry game, mentioning who won last year's game and who leads the series

If Team A wins the NC or conference title in year 1, they'll be referred to as "the defending national champions" or "conference champions" in year 2, respectively

If a player has a chance to break a season or career record in this game, make reference of this BEFORE the game. While we're on the topic, include conference records

In a big conference game, mention how Team A has a chance to wrap up the division with a win over Team B today

If one of Team A's players wins the Heisman or any other award in year 1 and is back for year 2, he should be recognized as having won that award

Later on in the season, Team A should be recognized as having a good, bad, surprising, or disappointing season

If a player made a huge progression leap in the spring, it should be recognized as thus

If a team is on a winning or losing streak, it should be recognized as thus

Erin Andrews could comment on the specific history of a rivalry game like she does in RL

Erin Andrews should make references to having talked to Team A's head coach at halftime and he said that "they need to stress limiting turnovers to have a chance to win the game, etc." I think something like this was in NCAA 10', but she only mentioned having "talked to a coach" but not a specific coach in general

If a player is in the Heisman Race, he should be recognized as thus

If a player is coming back from an injury, he should be recognized as thus

If a coach is playing against a team he once coached with before, he should be recognized as thus

Coach should be recognized for his achievements of National Championships, conference championships, bowl wins, winning seasons, coach of the year awards, having coached Heisman winners, etc.

If a certain highly ranked recruit is attending the game, he should be recognized as thus

If Team A has played in this particular bowl, conference championship, or opponent stadium before, it should be recognized as thus along with the appropriate records

If Team A is projected to be in a bowl, a stat overlay should convey this during the game

If Team A is wearing their alternate uniforms, they should be recognized as thus. Mix and Match doesn't count, has to be a preset alternate uni for this to work.

If Team A is from the North and they are playing Team B, who is from the South, at Team B's stadium during a hot day in September, the weather disadvantage to Team A should be referred to as thus. Same is true for vice versa (cold/snowy weather in the North).

Also, teams that play well at night at home (like LSU in Baton Rouge) should be referred to as thus

If Team A has been invited to a new conference, they should be referred as having started their first year in this conference.

Team A and Team B's versions of offenses should be referred to as thus

If Team A, a high prestige school in a BCS conference is playing Team B, a low prestige school from a non-BCS conference, at Team A's stadium, a reference should be made that Team A has scheduled a cupcake opponent

If Team A and Team B are playing each other for the second time this season OR are playing each other in a rematch game from last year, the previous game should be referred to, who won it, the score, and location.

If an east coast team is playing a west coast team, it should be recognized as thus

If this is Team A's Senior Day, make a reference and note how this is Player X's last home game as a _____. While on the topic, allow us to designate "homecoming games", and have the commentators refer to as thus

My personal favorite: If they're are any available: refer to upcoming games on ESPN and also mention a score update from another game! Both with in-game stat overlays!

Other in-game stat overlays could include:
-Top 25 (like NCAA Basketball 10)
-Showing a player's game by game stats
-Team A's upcoming schedule with references to this being an "easy" or "tough" upcoming stretch of games along with big games being highlighted
-Showing the series record and series scores of a rivalry game (at least the last 5-10 years)
-Kirk Herbstreit's Top 5 teams and make a small reference to how each are playing
-Herbstreit's own Heisman list

Re: Dynamic Commentary

Dynamic Commentary is a must for Ncaa football 12. This will definitely add to the realism in the game.

Beautiful list man! I would add one thing... when having a top recruit at a game, let's say two rivals are playing, and if the recruit has already visited the other team, that should be noted. Like this...

"Good afternoon college football fans, today we have the mighty Florida Gators playing host to the Bulldogs of Georgia. The Gators are currently 5-0 and the Gators, at 4-1, cannot afford to fall further behind. The Gators are hosting Sammy Snead, a 5 star wide receiver from nearby Park High School, and the Gators are trying to lure him to their school as well."

"That's right Kirk, and when Georgia had Sammy in for a game the 'Dogs lost to LSU 23-17 in a last second heartbreaker. The Bulldogs know if they are to land this kid they must put forth a winning effort today."

Something along those lines. Or, if Georgia won their game he was at, the announcer could talk about the added pressure for the Gators to win in order to woo him.

I have had this situation many times... I am recruiting a 5 star talent, I am number two on his list, the team he has at # 1 lost when he was there and now I am hosting his first choice. I win that game yet it does nothing for recruiting. I realize that there are times when a kid is going somewhere and nothing will change his mind, but when he sees his # 1 choice lose in person twice in a month, it should, you would think, impact him and his decision making.

Re: Dynamic Commentary

Awesome Idea. Unfortunately when you look at the state of commentary now- with the massive set of lines and still a lackluster outcome- this won't be a reality for at least a couple of years AT A MINIMUM.
