I finally got an Xbox over the weekend - the US bundle w/ NCAA Football 2005 & Top Spin. I've played 3 or 4 games of NCAA Football and am still getting used to it after having been out of gaming since my Sega Genesis. My biggest problem yet has been punting and kicking. I don't think I've punted the ball over 25-30 yards yet (many have been 20 yards or less)! My kickoffs have all been short too, not one has made it past the 15 or 10 yard line. Thankfully, I've usually made the tackle pretty quickly on kickoffs. I'm letting the kicking meter go all the way up as far as I can tell, although my accuracy may be off at the end (3rd button press). Any tips or do I just need more practice ? Do I need to adjust a difficulty level or something? Thanks for any help you can give! FYI - So far I've only played with Ohio State - my favorite team.
