    Last night I entered all of my Wisconsin Badgers players names in, and to my suprise they are not saying (example) "the QB" or "#5"..... They are saying "Bollinger". (which is the real name I put in of their qb) How fricking cool is that.... That only makes me love the game more...

    I was going to ask if this was something new, or if I have just been out of the loop for sometime on football games. I too entered the Badger's roster and noticed that about 5 or 6 names are used by the announcer and the PA announcer now. Pretty sweet if you ask me. I am assuming that this works for all teams, but part of me wishes that the programmers realize the true greatness of the Badgers, and give us fans a little extra.

    where did you get your rosters from, I'm also using the Badgers in my dynasty. The ones I found where too confusing to get/see. One game they yanked Bollinger out in the second atr. because i already threw three picks with him. That was cool.

    Announcers in NCAA Football have called out players' names (when entered) for a few years now. I remember first hearing it back on NCAA 2000 or so on PS1. Of course, at that time, there was no commentary, only the PA announcer.
    It seems to work for more players than it doesn't. Only occasionally will I hear "#25" instead of the player's last name -- unless I'm playing with Duke, which has a number of players whose names sport far more consonants than they should. [​IMG]

    I wish there was a Sharkport for the XBox as well. Many people bought a PS2 Sharkport last year just for NCAA 2002. I just added the entire Florida roster and thats all I'm doing. It takes a lot of time and doing all schools would be a real pain in the ass.

    Isn't the SharkPort a glorified USB Cable?

    I've done all nine schools in the ACC, and all but three of the 12 in the SEC. It is a pain in the @ss. I've spent as much or more time entering names as I have playing.

    I'll finish the SEC and also add names for out-of-conference teams Georgia is playing, then stop. Might add a few more biggies- Miami, Michigan, Texas, Oklahoma -- down the line.

    i am going to send in my memory card soon and see what i get.

    running wisconsin is as unpredictable as max paynes dream sequences. there secondary and coverage is obviously below average(especially if you followed real-life last season), but at times they have gotten me out of jams. but other times they just get picked apart, and even blew a 14-pt 4th Q lead(allowing a :36 92 yard drive). i like their rb and te, they always come up big. so far in the first season i am 5-2
