    For what it's worth. (if anything) I'll also add that I just bought a NEW Xbox because I had an older one and it came with ncaa 05 and a few other games and i'm getting the same crap. No other game does it. None.

    There's a million people complaining about this game over on Ea...And ea has done nothing. They did release a version of madden last year to help with some of their fuck ups...Hopefully they would do the same this year with ncaa...I can't say this problem happens in all games and xboxes,but now I have two discs and two xboxes and still have a glitching game.

    I used to be quite fond of EA games,but I personally think its pretty shitty to not have better customer service. If you buy a game,and something is wrong with it. It should be replaced with a working copy. If there are no working copies available,then you should be refunded.

    Here are a few times i've noticed glitching. These problems might seem small,but these are just specific instances. I've noticed glitching on and off during the game. Even when I wasnt running a play.

    Obvoiusly coming off the goal line. Online play,and some seroius problems when using multiplayer(more then 2) on xbox. I also had two created teams facing each other and had the game freeze. Anyone else?

    EA Sports always have a bunch of crappy bugs and mistakes in the games (especially NCAA 2005). When I find 5 significant and obvious bugs within the first couple days of playing, it makes me wonder if anyone even tested the game once. Chief this year is slowdown glitch and the dynasty glitch that fucks up scheduling.

    At least they made Leinart a lefty this year.

    The scheduling deal is the only bug I've found.. other than that my NCAA 2005 runs beautifully on my XBox with nothing wrong...

    I am pretty much boycotting EA right now, and it has nothing else behind it, other than the fact that their games have been complete shit lately. This year's NHL is one of the worse hockey games ever. If Sega decides to make a college football game next year, I think EA is gonna be in trouble. In fact, they're already in trouble.

    The one I'm talking about I've only noticed with Ohio State's schedule.. as I've only played as Ohio State.. lol.. but every once in a while I'll have to play Miami(OH) after Michigan, etc...

    BrutuStrength It's time to bring it!

    Other than slowdown, the only other glitch I've had is a "bad disk" error when I'm playing a dynasty game. I read somewhere that it is due to poor ventilation of the Xbox. I do find it odd that I don't have the same problem though, when playing Madden. In fact, I'm not aware of any glitches with my Madden game.

    I also hope that ESPN will come out with an NCAA game next year. If for no other reason than to get EA to eliminate the bugginess that seems to specifically afflict the NCAA franchise the last 2 years (coincidentally, the same 2 years that they haven't had any competition.) Plus, I can't see why I'd buy the ESPN NFL game when I don't have players to draft from a college game. That is one of my key features for even playing NFL franchises, to draft and recruit my NCAA players and see how they do.

    I'm sure that I'll still prefer EA's version of the games, but competition is always a good thing, IMO.

    Gotcha. I've gotten so used to that one I forgot to see it as a bug.

    My favorite scheduling bug from them was in NCAA 1999. It gave me *all* away games one year. :)

    I finally went out and bought the game, and got the internet hookup thing too. So i'm going to fiddle around with that tonight. Looking forward to it.

    I'm in the year 2012 and the damn game give me the first four weeks off, starts the Big Ten schedule, then has my out of conference games after the scUM game. It makes me want to go crazy!

    lol...hey...u never know what 2012 could bring :) Do you get great game points for every game you play? Anything you think somebody who just bought the game should check out?

    Okay...so how does this internet thing work actually. I had it plugged into my cable modem, but I really couldn't figure out where to go from there.
