"By now most of you have probably played the demo to death. What you got a glimpse of is how money the underneath passing game is going to be in NCAA Football 09. What you probably didnít get a good chance to try, with the quarters being so short, was the ground game."

good stuff, 5 minute quarters may be way too short this year since players that like to control the clock may actually be able to control the clock a little better...

Well thank god screen plays normally work in most cases now !!!!!!

Yeah, the blocking for the screens is so sweet now...hopefully after about the third or fourth time a screen is used the defense picks up on it a little bit though because on the demo the screen has been an easy route to get myself out of a 3rd and 14 type situation

Yeah screens are money now, almost too money. Still it should be better on a higher difficulty. They are beautiful to watch develop though. And like the article said if you call them out of different formations you can probably keep your opponent on their toes enough to have them work late in games if you have already ran a few even.

The nice thing is while playing Defense you will have to decide if you want to sacrafice the player you are to a downfield blocker in hopes of freeing up someone else. Certainly a tough decision on the fly.

Nice read, ya I have seen alot of players complain how screens are going to ruin the game, I disagree..but eh...each to their own.

I would agree....last year EA blew it first of all by putting Zabransky (How in the hell do u pass up on Adrian Peterson) on the cover and then the game play was suspect at best. Field texture and lighting were horrible.

I don't think the screens will be a problem at all if they where money everybody at community day would have been running them to death.

The real problem is those damn yellow zones get ready to play a lot of MLB until a patch comes out (hopefully).

I'd like to know as well. I haven't noticed anything. But then again, I do play quite a bit of MLB, myself.

yea I just hope the slip screen does not destroy the game...it seems like it is a money 20 yards or TD every time it is ran..but the demo is on varsity level, but the CPU is suprisingly not too stupid on that level.

Yeah the slip screen on the demo was money sometimes. I ran it 3 times in a row with LSU and got good results but other times the CPU made plays on the RB for minimal gaines , eventhough I had blockers. I don't think it will be a money play on the final version and on the higher skill levels.
