Things I miss from past NCAA titles

Over the years, EA has removed a few things that I really liked from their games. They have made some good strides towards improvement, especially with the graphics, stadium models, uniforms, and general gameplay, but below are some things that stick out that I miss.

1. Players getting rattled. I loved going on the road and sometimes seeing guys struggle against a noisy crowd. I think pre-snap you could look see who was confident and who wasn't. Having a freshman have to enter a big game and face nerves, the crowd, and the other team was very realistic. I'll never forget a experience I had while playing with Iowa. I had already lost one starting CB a few weeks prior to injury, and was on the road at Michigan. In the 1st half another one went down and I was force to throw in a freshman. The Big House was going nuts as I was down 14-0 and my CB was totally lost. The offense kept picking on him all game and he was just having one heck of a time. I've experiences this with QB's as well.

2. Player suspensions. Sure it wasn't fine tuned, and sometimes lots of players were suspended (I once had 2 kickers who were skipping class, along with 3 starters on defense) but it made you think and adjust your starting lineup. I read the NCAA did not like this feature and that's why it was removed but this unfortunate aspect is a part of college football. Kids make poor choices off the field and teams have to deal with it.

These are the main two things off the top of my head that I miss. They added a sense of realism to the game.

What are some things that you miss?

Medical redshirts. I just hate having to see my seniors/redshirt seniors go after getting injured on their first carry/tackle/throw.

I dont miss player suspensions at all...while it may be realistic in a way it takes away from it actually being a game experience...injuries are the only thing that really need to happen outside of ur control. No one wants to deal with random suspensions of like 2-3 players before a big game...

I miss the three celebration options for all the big moment stuff like sacks, first downs, td, etc. I also miss the impact hot and cold system. Mainly everything from NCAA 05.

NCAA 07 minus the Momentum Meter, HFA, and Impact Players. Take those out and it's a great game, possibly the greatest of the series.

NCAA 04 is great except for 55 man rosters and no rotating conference schedules. No EA gimmicks make for the best gameplay (except for the CPU never running the ball, but that can be nullified with custom coach profiles).
