One year out from a playoff, and the game is all but dead

The number one feature I wanted in real life and for the game and we will never see it because EA wanted to save it as a selling point for next year and then O'Bannon and Co. killed the game. I get that EA doesn't even know the format yet and I was actually with the plaintiffs in spirit before it touched me in this superficial way, but still, really disappointed.

You hit the key point: they don't know the format, and nobody else does either. How would you expect them to program it in with any smeblance of effective realism? Especially given their track record of waiting until changes are already settled before putting them in?

I find it amusing that the OS icon for NAU is 10 years (and two rebrands!) out of date.

Maybe just give us the option to choose what type of playoff we want in OUR dynasty mode. If we don't want a playoff the game can stay the same. Give us 4, 8, 12, 16.... 116 team playoffs and let us choose how the teams are selected. Conference champs, top bcs ranked schools, reg season conf champs, etc. A little freedom to make the game the way we want it would be appreciated. EA football games are nowhere close to being sim so straying from "reality" shouldn't be that big of a deal
