How do you slow the pace of the game down between plays?

I'm a former Madden player and this is the first NCAA game I've bought. I've noticed immediately that the pace of the game, when playing the CPU, is at breakneck speed compared to what I'm used to. What I mean is that amount of time it takes for the CPU to call plays on offense is so fast that I've barely chosen my formation by the the time the countdown timer is at 5. This problem is obviously exacerbated when the CPU no-huddles, as the play selection screen doesn't even come up until 2.5 seconds before they snap the ball.

Is there any way to slow this part of the game down so that I can actually get decent play calls in?

I may be totally wrong but I do not think so

I do not understand the complaints about the no huddle. I pick personnel based on what the offense is doing. So if they run a hurry up I have the personnel already on the field. You should have 3 good defensive plays in that formation you should use during hurry up. The whole point in hurry up is to catch the d off guard. WHY?! In the world would you need to "slow" it down??

If you're referring to the no huddle issue where you can't pick a play, it's something that's been complained about to EA, so hopefully there will be a fix.

Because not every team in real life runs the no huddle like Oregon does (in fact, almost no one does), but in this game everyone runs the no huddle at a breaknace pace. Even this game goes faster than Oregon.

In a typical no-huddle pace, defenses can still get a call in even if they are stuck with the same personnel on the field. In the case of this game, the playcall screen when engaged in no huddle doesn't even come up until after the offense is set, when there is about a 4 second period of time during the animation where the players get set again. Again, that leaves me about 2 seconds to pick a play and then hopefully even make adjustments. No one has that little time in real life, no matter how fast the offense goes.

If slowing the game down a hair can't be done, then it can't be done and I'll accept that. But there's a legit reason for wanting to slow things down.

But focusing on just when the CPU runs no-huddle isn't the only point... even when the CPU huddles on O there is very little time to actual cycle through the formations to pick a play. The CPU almost always snaps the ball with 25+ seconds left on the play clock, even when coming out the huddle.

It's not so much being caught off guard, it's that there is a delay in the ability to call a play at times... even if you're already lined up. It's a little unrealistic that 11 players could be ready to go, without the ability to call a play.

It's one thing to be at the mercy of the no huddle speed, but when your team is ready, that's the problem. At a minimum, teams should be able to audible on the fly, but we're not given that option.
