Call me a child, but I'm excited. This is the beginning of Irish football season for me.. Getting all the names, recruiting players, winning a championship, changing all the recruit measurables and names to match our class and what I think our next classes will look like.. Man.. I am fortunate enough to have an understand girlfriend and some free time so why not spend it on my true passion, Irish football. Go Irish!
P.S. If anyone knows where I can get accurate rosters without buying them on eBay, I'd appreciate it. I can't play my dynasty until I get names so hopefully there's someone out there.
I just hope the game doesn't forget our fifth year players again and doesn't complete mess up rankings. It suck having to spend the first hour adjusting rating because they have some people so underrated and others so overrated.
Oh, and for goodness sake when are they going to allow you to fire and hire the assistants you want once you're HC? It's terrible. If I start off coaching as an OC and become a HC, I want to be able to offer the coordinators I want to match my style of ball, not have the computer pick them for me.

GOD..COUNTRY..NOTRE DAME... THEN HUNTING
Operation Sports (specifically the gamertags: CcAaRrSsOoNn3 and CK11) usually has the named + updates stats roster available 2-4 days after release. Since there was an early release, (July 6th for certain EA members) I wouldn't be surprised to see them completed tonight or tomorrow. Fairdale Kings already has named rosters out but is charging $4 for them for early access members, but said they'll be available for free when the game is released, so they should be out now I would assume.
Also, how about a freakin' 97 Overall Ranking for ND this year? That seems a little too high for me, but I'm not complaining haha. Manti Te'o is also tied for the highest individual player rankings with Matt Barkley at 98 OVR.
Teo at 98... I can not wait to get this game... I wonder how the QBs are going to be broken down
I wait the 10 days. There is a website I am forgetting the name, that takes posts and emails from all gamers regarding missing players and incorrect stats. In order for there to be a change you have to provide proof, I.e roster, 40 times, height, weight, ect. Last year was atrocious with no Harrison smith, Gary gray, and wood's speed was 87.
That's true because with Notre Dame's way of redshirting, they are listed as seniors on the game, but then graduate. If you find a place that does the Irish roster right, PLEASE post it.
I like this game a lot right now. Just played Michigan and we were both undefeated. Mich #4 and ND #16. Game comes down to 1:28 left and I just kicked a field goal to make it ND 13 Mich 7. Denard's first pass goes for 20 to the mid field and I start thinking, here we go again. Then, the D just steps up sacks Denard three times and breaks his ribs on third down. Cause an incompletion on 4th down and ND won. Here's to hoping a similar result this year!
