I'm assuming a lot of you guys play NCAA Football 2012, and I'm wondering if any of you have experienced the same issue I've been having. Which is this: occasionally, seemingly without cause or reason, a team I should beat easily gives me obscene competition.
Right now I've had to restart the game against Duke about five times. Because, I'm sorry, their C+ defense should not be giving me the kind of trouble they are. Not to mention their offense is playing better than Oklahoma did.
My last attempt against Duke, they sacked EJ six times. He threw 3 INTs, most of which were inexplicably off course, or read by the safeties as though God Himself were directing them (i.e. they'll be covering one receiver and magically drift off before I've even made the throw to cover my targeted receiver).
I'm playing on All-American difficulty, which is basically what I'm stuck with. In Heisman I get annihilated, or in Varsity I annihilate. But, I'm sorry, if I was able to basically shut down Oklahoma and win 50-28, I should not be eeking out a win against Duke, taking six sacks and throwing three picks.
Anyway. NCAA Football has always gotten me through the July/August gap until kickoff, and I love it this year as much as I have for the past ten. But this is getting on my nerves, severely.
I also wondered if any of you have noticed that sometimes, regardless of opponent, you can pretty much spot a scoring drive. They'll magically complete every pass, or fight for that extra yard to get a first down. Usually on the first or second play I can tell that the CPU is going to score no matter what I do. This was true against UL-Monroe as much as it was against Oklahoma.
