It'd make more sense if the left, center, or right referred to where you intended to run the ball rather than where you think your going to catch the ball. Then the blocking would be more coordinated to that goal. The blockers or wedge for kickoff returns should always backtrack toward where the ball is heading, setup and start blocking to try to create a seam based on which direction the return was called.

The AI has gotten 1 or two decent returns (10-15 yards) but the opportunity for more is there. It is not there for the user. The entire coverage moves as one. Swarming and lightning fast.

When I played a user v user game, Alabama's kick coverage stuffed me. I didn't have a chance of getting past the 18.
Exactly, I catch the ball take two steps and get swarmed. When I put, I sky that thing and run Max Cover and I still can't get to the com.

Re: Punt Return

Anything is better than NCAA 08 (I think) where it just took one wiggle and the defense wouldn't touch you.
Check out my Tampa Bay Buccaneers CFM Thread.

You too can be a 5* recruit at FSU.......

It's like the coverage blows by everybody you have at light speed and swarms you. This wouldn't be a problem if it didn't seem like I was being overmatched by a bunch of code. Maybe I've just had crappy returners so far.
I ran a left return for a touchdown of 56 yards on AA difficulty w/Mohamed Sanu of Rutgers.

Sorry, I do not have video evidence.

Re: Punt Return

Yeah I haven't had much success returning punts either...but both of my online opponents so far liked to go for it on 4th down so I haven't really had many opportunities.
