I'm probably going to up McClain and lower Collins to make up for whatever I do to McClain's since Collins is completely overrated, I might lower his total to the 74-77 OVR range and give the points I took away to Britt and McClain. I think Britt is a little low at 80 (I might make him an 83-84) and bring Rolando up to at least 82-83. Is anyone else going to alter the rosters to make them a little more realistic (like making Grant faster, lowering Collins, etc.)?

    It could be Coger, good catch.

    Collins isn't even playing LB anymore, he's at end. Grant deserves some more speed.

    Editing rosters is a MUST.

    Yep I always do make some adjustments. But I keep them reasonable.

    Yeah, i usually don't edit, but it looks like our team is pretty off. Capps and Collins are definitely high. Carter seems high as well.

    Here is the breakdown by class for UA's roster.

    19 frosh 18 soph 16 junior 16 senior.

    This looks fairly realistic since I know we don't have many seniors at all. It leaves one spot to create a player, and I think I am going to create Watkins as an OLB (unless he is already there) and make him about a 74-76.

    Having one player no matter how good he is does not warrant them being ranked 10th in this game I'm sorry. McFadden is an awesome player there's no doubting that (and Felix Jones is phenomenal as well) but one player can't boost a team's overall ranking THAT much. I think they've just simply overestimated Arkansas' team overall.

    I saw their team ratings (player by player) and Monk is rated high, as is their big DT (can't remember the name). Their C (maybe one of the guards) is rated pretty high too. The rest of their roster has similar ratings to Bama. Every other receiver for them is in the 70s (pretty sure; maybe 1 guy in the low 80s). I think all of their DL were at least 80 with the DT being a 92-93.

    It won't matter to me once I spoon feed the swine a healthy dose of bitter defeat!

    Yeah no I wasn't trying to say that they only have McFadden and Jones and no one else any good on their team, I was just rebutting what DD was suggesting in that the reason Arky was rated so highly was McFadden. They have some talent aside from those two, but it doesn't add up to a top 10 ranking IMHO.

    i gotcha. i don't know what they're ranked in the real life preseason polls, but 10 is definitely high. In the game its great though b/c it'd be a win against a top 10 team; big help with recruits and prestige I'm sure.

    Motley is not on the roster,and #77 at 306# is no doubt the actual #77 Walton,just is alittle over rated. #35 must be them thinking juco Ricks gets in.One fr. cb by his ht, and weight is lett.Guys the biggest hint is in their home state and ht,and weight b/c most overalls are pretty off the mark.Also, the largest mistake is they put the wrong fr. DT on the team b/c it should have been chapman or McC. not Murphy. The best way to fix the roster IMO is to change J Barnes from #15 to #66 make him 6'1 274 with 84 str,and 76 tackle(in other words make him into Motley.).

    Re: NCAA 08 - Some Bama player ratings

    I didn't think about changing positions like that. I just changed numbers of people who were already at those positions. Like #35, I changed to 49 to make the SS Rashad since I had no clue who 35 was supposed to be. Good call with Ricks. Does anyone know what the "Importance" rating is about? When creating prospects, I'm not sure what to make of it.

    Importance rating is just what it implies, it's a measure of how important a player is to his team.
