Top 5 B+ or Lower Teams To Use in NCAA 14

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

Any user can take Alabama and Notre Dame to the BCS, but users looking for a bit of a challenge with an established school should take a look at our top picks for B+ or lower teams in NCAA 14.

1. Georgia Tech – NCAA 14 will feature a new physics engine, a new focus on the running game, and added emphasis on the option. Perhaps no team will benefit more from a revamped option run system than the Yellow Jackets. Though QB Tevin Washington is gone, Tech will boast a solid offensive lineman at all 5 spots up front and several backs capable of hitting on a big run. It takes most users several games, or even a few seasons, to master the flexbone attack, but once you have a firm grasp of how to run the offense few teams are as fun to use – or watch – as Georgia Tech.

2. Northwestern – Coach Pat Fitzgerald is quietly turning Northwestern into a power, and the Wildcats can be deadly from the outset in the hands of the right user. QB Kain Colter is an underrated dual-threat, and should have the skills to play QB, RB and WR. When you want to move Colter around, the Wildcats will have a solid backup QB in Trevor Siemian. RB Venric Mark and an extremely deep WR group will provide Wildcat users with endless weapons on offense. The defense will boast a great player at each level and the fertile Illinois recruiting area will make Northwestern a team poised to break out in any dynasty.

College Football’s Top Non-Conference Games of 2013

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

There is no obvious choice for the best non-conference game this fall, but there are plenty of games that will still pique the interest of fans across the nation, and for the 2nd straight year one team dominates our list. Check out our 5 can’t-miss non-conference games of the upcoming season.


5. Notre Dame @ Michigan: September 7th
Two years ago Michigan won with a thrilling comeback, and last season the Irish won a sloppy, low-scoring affair 13-6. With the offseason news that Notre Dame has withdrawn from future games with the Wolverines, this one will have plenty of storylines for an early-season matchup. Despite high expectations last season, Michigan came up short in every big game. A win here would put the Wolverines on cruise control through October, while Notre Dame will be looking for a win to carry momentum into a 3-game series against the Big Ten.

LSU vs. TCU: August 31st
An intriguing matchup kicks off the 2013 football season. LSU was clearly the better team a year ago but was ravaged by early entrants into the NFL draft. Meanwhile, TCU finished just 7-6 in its first year in the Big 12 but was without QB Casey Pachall and RB Waymon James for most of the season. While LSU will be favored, the always-stingy TCU defense should hold their own against the Tiger offense, and if Pachall and James pick up where they left off while the LSU defense takes time to click, the Horned Frogs may jump all over the big bad SEC Tigers.


3. Oklahoma @ Notre Dame: September 28th
When we saw this game on last season’s schedule, we thought it would provide a nice win to help boost the national championship candidacy of one of these teams – we just didn’t expect it to be Notre Dame, who rolled the Sooners on their way to Miami. This season it will likely feature a matchup of two top-15 teams looking to keep some momentum going as they head into meat of their schedules. Depending on what happens in the mini-Big 10 schedule for the Irish (@ Michigan, @ Purdue and vs. Michigan State), Notre Dame may either be struggling to stay above .500, or rolling at 5-0 and sparking talk of another appearance in the title game.

2. Notre Dame @ Stanford: November 30th
Notre Dame’s 20-13 overtime win in 2012 was one of the best games of the year, complete with a controversial finish. This fall the game has been moved to the season finale for both teams, and a BCS berth may be on the line for one or both teams. Stanford is predicted to fight for the Pac-12 Championship and Notre Dame is looking to show that they are back for good. At worst, this game will provide an exciting matchup of two bowl teams, and at best it will have national championship implications. What’s not to love?

1. Georgia @ Clemson: August 31st
This game gets bonus points since it’s on the opening weekend, but it also features two teams with reasonable hopes to find themselves playing for it all in January. The game will also feature two high-profile senior quarterbacks in Georgia’s Aaron Murray and Clemson’s Tajh Boyd. The Tigers are coming off a bowl victory over LSU, and a second straight win over an SEC power would be a terrific start to 2013, while a win for the Bulldogs would give them big momentum heading into a huge conference game against South Carolina.

Most Popular Online Teams in NCAA Football 14

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Get used to the teams on this list…if you are an online gamer you will find yourself matched up with each of them nearly any time you try to find a game online.


1. Alabama – Every year we talk about how much the Tide lose, but every year they bring back an insane amount of talent and should once again be one of the highest rated teams on NCAA 14. In fact, Alabama will probably be THE highest rated team, and users will be able to lean on a super-accurate passer in QB A.J. McCarron, a terrific set of receivers, and a highly-rated line to pave the way for RB T.J. Yeldon. Add in an elite defense with a sick set of linebackers, and the Tide will make for one tough matchup online.

2. Ohio State – QB Braxton Miller will likely be rated similar to Denard Robinson last season: low 90’s overall, decent passing ability, and excellent rushing skills. Users that like running quarterbacks will have a field day with the Buckeyes, and the elite offensive line and RB Carlos Hyde will provide a nice complement to Miller. The defense won’t be quite at the level of the offense, but users that like to control a LB can wreak havoc with Ryan Shazier, and the secondary will lock down almost any passing attack.

3. Texas A&M – The Aggies return arguably the most exciting player in college football: Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. Users will be salivating to get their hands on Manziel, who will probably be mid-to-high 90’s overall, with a great arm and excellent running skills. RB Ben Malena will provide a solid rushing attack to accompany Manziel. Users may struggle a bit on defense, but the offense has such high-scoring potential that it may not even matter. Watch out for the Aggies online.

College Football’s 2013 Hot Seat

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Each summer takes a look at five head coaches that are feeling the heat and need to make significant improvements to keep their jobs heading into the next season. This year there are some big-time jobs that may be open by December. Take a look at our 2013 College Football Hot Seat!

1. Tim Beckman, Illinois: Sure, Beckman is only two seasons into his tenure as Illinois coach, but take a look at those two seasons: after starting 6-0 in 2011, the Illini are just 3-16 since, including an 0-14 mark in Big Ten play after starting 2-0. Take away a bowl win over UCLA to cap the 2011 season, and it has been nothing short of a disaster for Illinois fans. Last season’s 2-10 mark was so bad that the Illini gave up 45+ points five times and only really even looked competitive in one of their 10 losses. Without significant improvement in 2013 (and significant may only mean 4-5 wins and some spark of hope), Beckman won’t survive to see the expansion and division re-alignment coming to the conference in 2014.

2. Bobby Hauck, UNLV: Hauck is under contract through 2014, but will he make it to the end of his deal? After an outstanding run at Montana, Hauck has never won more than two games with the Rebels and is jut 6-32 in three seasons. Granted, UNLV does not have a rich history of success, but Hauck currently has the lowest winning percentage of any coach in school history. Unless the Rebels show marked improvement in 2013, what can Hauck stand on as support that he deserves to keep his job?



SEC Football Predictions – 2013 Season

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

The SEC has taken home each of the last seven national championships, and with Alabama leading the way don’t be surprised if the SEC makes it seven straight. The SEC West is the best division in college football, but the East has a few teams capable of a BCS run as well. Check our predictions below.



  • 1. Georgia 10-2 (6-2): The ‘Dogs may need to rely on the offense more than ever this year, and luckily it should be more than up to the task. QB Aaron Murray should own the major SEC passing records by the end of the year, and there may not be a better RB tandem in the nation than Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall, who are both just sophomores. The line is also back in full force, though it will need to improve if the offense is to reach new heights. The defense may take awhile to come around; Georgia must replace SEVEN players that were selected in this year’s NFL draft. Unfortunately, the schedule won’t give the Bulldogs any time to settle in on defense: the first two games are against Clemson’s high powered offense and SEC east rival South Carolina, and LSU comes to town for game four. The defense will almost surely end up as a strong unit, the only question is how big of a hole Georgia will be in after the early part of the schedule.
  • 2. South Carolina 9-3 (6-2): The Gamecocks will feature a pair of quarterbacks this season and will need both to improve their play to help offset the loss of RB Marcus Lattimore and WR Ace Sanders. WR Bruce Ellington appears ready to fill the void left by Sanders, and there are several other receivers looking to step up this fall. RB Mike Davis will get the first crack to replace Lattimore, but it will likely take a group effort make the offense go. You already know about DE Jadeveon Clowney, but the secondary is a strong group as well. LB is a bit of a mystery as all three starters must be replaced. South Carolina misses the Big Three from the West (Alabama, A&M and LSU) so the schedule aligns nicely for a run at a division championship. An early season matchup with Georgia will go a long way in deciding the East. (more…)

Big 10 Football Predictions – 2013 Season

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

Wisconsin has quietly won three straight conference titles, but 2013 is shaping up to be the season in which the traditional powers return to the top of the heap: OSU is an early favorite for a National Championship appearance, and Michigan will be involved in a three-way race in the Legends division. However, there will still be plenty of competition in the final season before division re-alignment. Check out our 2013 Big Ten predictions below.


Legends Division

  • 1. Michigan 9-3 (6-2): A year ago, Denard Robinson’s departure was a scary thought for Wolverines fans, but QB Devin Gardner showed flashes of brilliance down the stretch last fall. Gardner doesn’t have Robinson’s wheels, but he can still run enough when he needs to and is a far more accurate passer than Denard. LT Taylor Lewan will protect Gardner’s blind side, and WR Jeremy Gallon, TE Devin Funchess and RB Fitz Toussaint give Michigan plenty of weapons on offense. DC Greg Mattison has quickly turned the Michigan defense into an intimidating unit, and his expertise will be needed to keep the unit near the top of the conference this season. Several impact performers departed after last season and LB Jake Ryan suffered an injury this spring that will keep him out for most of the season. There are some pieces though, including LB Desmond Morgan, safety Thomas Gordon and DE Frank Clark, who could bust out and earn all-conference honors this fall. The Wolverines get the two biggest games (Notre Dame and Ohio State) at home, but trips to Penn State and Michigan State will be tests. Look for Michigan to improve on last season’s 8-5 mark and fight for a spot in the Big Ten Championship Game.
  • 2. Northwestern 9-3 (5-3): After surprising the conference and winning 10 games in 2012, the Wildcats could be even better this year. The offense returns largely intact, led by do-everything QB Cain Colter, dynamic RB Venric Mark, and a host of talented receivers. Colter is again expected to rotate with QB Trevor Siemian, but the Wildcats are just a steady passing attack away from having one of the deadliest offenses in not just the Big 10, but the entire country. The offensive line is a bit of a question mark, but the Wildcats excel at getting their playmakers in space and doing work in the open field. The defense was only average in 2012, but all-conference talent at each level provides reason for optimism this fall. DE Tyler Scott is a sack machine, LB Damien Proby racks up tackles, and safety Ibraheim Campbell is as productive as any safety in the Big 10. Mix in LB Chi Chi Ariguzo and CB Nick VanHoose, and the Wildcats defense is filled with playmakers. After opening conference play with tough games against Ohio State and Wisconsin, the Wildcats play five straight against Legends competition and will certainly have a say in who represents the division in the Big 10 Championship.
