NCAA Football Review

If you are a fan of football games then you should strongly consider picking up a copy of EA Sports NCAA Football 2020. There are several improvements that have been made since the 2019 version of this EA Sports game. I myself purchased EA Sports NCAA Football 2020 For the Xbox 360, but it is also available for other consoles. However, if you want to get this new game it will generally run you about fifty to sixty dollars depending on which system you are purchasing it for.

Graphics

One of the most significant improvements from EA Sports NCAA Football 2019 to EA Sports NCAA Football 2020 is the graphics. In the previous version of the game the graphics were good, but the way in which players in the games moved was not that smooth. The team at EA Sports actually did something quite innovative to make the players move in a more lifelike matter.

When making EA Sports NCAA Football 2020 EA Sports brought in professional NCAA players to their lab and attached sensors to their body. After attaching sensors to their body, they had the players do various moves over and over again. They then put this information into a computer which allowed them to create players that were able to move much more smoothly in the game.

Manager Mode

Another one of the major improvements from EA Sports NCAA Football 2019 to EA Sports NCAA Football 2020 is the improvements made in the manager mode. In the past version of the game you could only see basic stats on players. Now you can see stats such as points scored, tackles made, and passing percentage. One of the best parts about EA Sports NCAA Football 2020 is the manager mode because you can trade players from one team to another and act as if you were a professional manager of an NCAA team.

First Person Mode

Another exciting part of playing EA Sports NCAA Football 2020 is the first person mode. This mode of the game allows you to play as one specific player on the team instead of controlling the entire team. In my opinion, controlling the player in this mode is actually quite difficult. However, if you are getting bored of the regular game then you may want to consider playing in this mode.

One nice feature about the first person mode is that you can play in a single exhibition match instead of being forced to play an entire NLF season. However, when playing EA Sports NCAA Football 2020 you still have the option to take this single player through an entire NCAA season.

Either way, I would give EA Sports NCAA Football 2020 an 8 out of 10 when it comes to the overall performance of the game. If you are a fan of NCAA football then this will be a great game for you because you can play as all of your favorite NCAA players and teams! Just try not to have too much fun!

Britain is Unlikely to Have a Football Team at London

When the Olympics are in London it would be lovely to think there could be a British football team. The grim reality is this is unlikely to happen. In this article I will discuss the arguments and suggest what could be done to overcome the obstacles. The three main arguments against the team is the disruption to the Premiership, voting rights for the four countries that make up Great Britain and the complexities in selecting a team.

Firstly the Olympics takes place in early August the same time the Premiership starts. The conflict is clear, but representing your country is a great honour. With football such big business these days it's unlikely that that such a scheme would have much support from Premiership managers. However typically Olympic teams are made up of mainly U23 players with a few older players. Now many young players would not be regulars in the Premiership.

The second problem is that of voting rights. Currently England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales each have individual rights to vote on host nations for European and World Cup tournaments. Sepp Blatter has stated that maybe that should be reduced to one if they compete as Great Britain in the Olympics. It will also raise interesting points about whether or not it should be Britain who competes internationally or the separate nations of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Now selecting a Great Britain Olympic team would be a very hard task. Firstly there is the issue of how many players should be allocated per individual nation. One possible solution is to allocate an equal number for instance in a 24 man squad each nation could be given six players each. However this would create a problem as the team maybe weakened due to have an average player in the squad only to fulfil the quota per country. In that case should a more general rule apply such as every individual nation should be represented? In that case only one player needs to be from each nation to fulfil that criterion.

In conclusion there are three very strong arguments or oppositions towards a Great Britain football team and it would be challenging to overcome them, but possible. The argument on the clash with the Premiership can be overcome, by picking a squad of mainly younger players. There are already many players from the Premiership playing in the Olympics for foreign teams, so a few British players would make little difference. The issue of voting is rather irrelevant because they are entirely different sections of the sport. Football in the Olympics is not connected to World Cups or anything of that nature it is really a one off event. Selecting the team is the biggest challenge and having equal players from each nation is the safest option, but that may result in a weak team. I have two suggestions one is a team of selectors, one from each nation selects the team collectively. My alternative is players are put through Olympic trials and the team is selected that way. I think it's possible to form a British team for 2020, but my gut reaction is it won't happen.
