Not just come back like in last gen but to come back and be able to start a FCS dynasty and build a small school program. And get them up into the FBS.
Squeezee, I completely agree. The justification I have heard for not having all FCS teams is that there are issues with adding that many players to the game, stadiums, etc. Pardon my language, but that is bull! Look at last gen!!!! Anything last gen can do, next gen should be able to do even better!

Now I don't care if for 2010 if all the FCS stadiums are generic and the entrances are generic, and music is generic... fine. Just give me the option to play as OR against any FCS team I wish. Yes I conceed, CAS is great to make one school but I want the luxury to play who I want and when. It's an insult to FCS schools to all be referred to as FCS MIDWEST DRAGONS. Come on EA, you guys make good games and you're better than that! I suspect a huge portion of US gamers come from FCS schools and those people need to be represented.

NCAA FOOTBALL isn't only about Div 1 ELITES.... What makes NCAA football so good, at least in the past anyways... is that the game stayed true to representing all of the FBS AND FCS football teams. And, any tiny schools not represented could be created by CAS.

EA, for my Christmas present... FCS and CAS for 2010

As great as it sounds from a customer perspective, that statement is absolutely wrong.

Since features aren't copy and paste, they require effort from development teams.

I'm still failing to see how a game with faulty AI and logic will be better because we have 50 more teams that can't play football with some intelligence.

And I know you'll say that we should expect and get both and have the best of both worlds, but that is so far from reality that it's like wishing on a star. We all wish that we could get it all in 2010... it's just not going to happen.

Okay, I see your point about the A.I. and conceed that there are still significant gameplay issues to be worked out. I personally go insane over the issue of no pass rush and I also struggle with faulty logic on 3rd and 4th downs. However, let's be clear, even on last gen there were serious A.I. issues. Regardless of the platform it will never be perfect. Overall I find the 09 version to be the best on next gen and far superior to the 08 version so we are heading in the right direction. Therefore, the big "improvements" to 2010 should not be graphics or gameplay but rather all of the other missing intangibles such as FCS and CAS (not to mention atmosphere, presentation, ESPN integration, etc.). Having these "EXTRAS" help me to overlook some of the minor flaws in gameplay.

I disagree with your premise about it not being possible to transfer last gen logic to a next gen engine. On this website we have had EA people tell us that Madden and NCAA FOOTBALL on next gen are supposed to be different as the goal was not simply to recreate last gen. THE SAD THING IS THAT THE LAST GEN FEATURES SUCH AS FCS AND CAS ARE EXACTLY WHAT PEOPLE WANT!!!! That is what people on this forum find so frustrating.

With exclusivity deals and therefore no competition the only way EA hears our thoughts, issues, and concerns is through websites such as this. EA has to be held to a higher standard. Back when 2k was in the football gaming industry we had some of the best EA and 2K football games ever! We as consumers need to raise the bar and expectations to fill the gap left because of exclusivity and simply saying "well fix gameplay only" just doesn't cut it. Fix gameplay issues and bring back features... all at the same time... aka NCAA FOOTBALL 2010.

But I digress, the original topic is FCS versus CAS. So once again I put in my vote for FCS (but also was CAS) for NCAA 2010.
