NCAA08, the newest version of EA Sports' college football franchise hit stores. That sound you heard was productivity draining out of many young American males.
Some people live and die by the Madden football video games. I didn't get a PS2 until last year and NCAA07 was my first purchase. i was hooked. I don't need the pro game - I want to take a college program from the bottom to the top. I did very well with Boise State and ended up getting a bunch of big offers, eventually ending up at penn State. I didn't win the national title, but I had a few good seasons. I also, while at Boise State, racked up more than 100 points in a game against a Division I-AA team. I think one of my returners had four TDs that game.
This year's version will blow last year's away. The recruiting function - one of my favorites - is even better. And I know what I am doing, compared to my knowledge level when i got my hands on the game last year. Thanks to the real-life Boise State team, 08 will have trick plays like the ones they used to beat Oklahoma last season.
I haven't bought the game yet, mainly because I want to go to bed at a reasonable hour during the work week. But I have Friday off, so it will be in my hands sometime on Thursday. Pray for my family.
