I'm going to buy it, then break it. That'll show those effers.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
Marcus Rush rated higher than Will. Not knocking Rush at all, but I can't imagine many MSU fans without the last name Rush feel that Marcus is a better player than Gholston.
And if the good Lord’s willin’,
I’m a keep on chillin’,
refillin’ and flyin’ high
These ratings are beyond ridiculous. Johnny Adams a preseason all american only 85? Gholston only 84? Also what is up with Nick Hill being as good as Gholston?

I completely agree. It's insulting and the video game can fuck off.
At least Arnett is in it
Gholston has a 72 speed? THE FUCK?!?!
Cook at an 80 is very generous considering his performance in the spring game... At least they included many more of the freshman and sophomores than they have in past years.
I recall the same stuff happened last yr, and the rosters were adjusted by the time the game actually came out.
That is alittle drastic. You can always change them in 20 minutes.
Who really gives a fuck? Quit crying, its a video game.

I haven't played the game for a few years, but I remember when I did I sometimes used other teams that I knew were good just because it's fun to try something new and check out a different squad.
It's not a huge deal that they screwed up the rosters, but there is going to be some fan of a random school out there who wants to use a better team.
They will think, 'The Spartans have some sick jerseys' I think I will try them. Scrolls to MSU, 'Oh wait, they're not as good as I thought' and then they move on to some other team.
It's not super damaging but at the same time I'm pissed that our roster doesn't match the brand recognition that has been built the last 5 years.
Clearly people do give a fuck hence this thread.
it's a consumer product and shitty rosters affect the quality.
I'll rent it for a couple weeks but i wont buy it.
It's mostly an issue for that that play the game online against random opponents around the country. When doing this, you have to play with the stock rosters the game came with. In the Online Dynasty mode, you can play with modified roster (The dynasty members all play with the same roster), but not in random online games. It's a major issue for people who grow tired of playing against the computer all the time.
That being said, I remember there being issues last year when the initial rosters leaked. Many of them were changed in the first update to the game (which was available on release day) and the opening day roster was much better than the original roster.
I haven't bought an NCAA game in about 5 years. Are they that much better than they used to be?
No, the only reason I buy the new one every year is for the rosters... which they fail at year after year.
And yes, I'm still upset we didn't have new jerseys in 11 despite ours being out for like 5 months before the game was released, I'm still upset they couldn't get our green right last year, and I'm still upset we were 2 full jersey sets behind in NCAA Basketball 10 despite the fact we played in the NCAA CG the year before. That's unacceptable when the whole lure to the game is to imitate the real teams.
I'm assuming you mean the first game on the new generations of systems? If so it has gotten a lot better.
Exactly. I probably won't be buying it this year.
They have got to understand that while bending over backwards for some fanbases (UM, Texas, etc...) they are burning bridges with dozens of others and while my $60 won't break their budget it's the little bit that I can do. F them.

EA has all you people hooked like suckers. They put out a shitty product year after year and people line up to hand over money.

$59.99. Its not like it will break the bank. The one game I buy each year.
I agree with everything you said. The uniforms in that final NCAA Basketball were atrocious...as was the gameplay.
EA hasn't produced a decent basketball game since around 2005, if not before.

This. The last EA hoops game I enjoyed was Coach K....on the Sega Genesis.
apparently dan conroy shaved his head and grew some black facial hair too.
NCAA 2K8 was the shit though... I wish EA hadn't bought up the NCAA licensing rights...
Is that what happened? I thought 2k just stopped making College Hoops because the games weren't selling.
