NCAA 2011 Rosters (XBox)

The community over at Operation Sports has a great roster for the XBox for NCAA 2011. They've gone the extra mile to take transfers and dismissals into account for this upcoming year, so if you're wanting to play with the roster that looks very, very close to perfect here's your chance to do so.They seem to be very fair rosters overall and I'm impressed with their job in getting all the positions and stuff right -- well, for Tennessee at least. I can't really speak too much for the rest of the teams.

The only thing I've changed stat-wise myself is to make Matt Sims' Awareness rating 65 -- it was in the 40's or 50's by default, and 65 is still extremely low for a QB. (Vanderbilt's QBs have a 63 Awareness, Kentucky's a 65, and the rest of the SEC's starters are all 70+, most of them well into the 80's and McElroy has a 92.) I think Poole should be more of an 88 or 89 back personally (he's rated 86 overall) and I think that Oku should be more of a 95 with speed (he's 93) but I really can't find any honest reason to change that.

Oh, and I did edit Justin Hunter up to an 80 from like a 73 or something, having him pass Matt Milton and Zach Rogers in overall ability. Da'Rick is an 82 and, as a stellar freshman, I think Hunter deserves that. I think most of the change came from upping his Acceleration to 91 from like 80 something, since it doesn't make sense for A) a guy with 96 speed to have 80-some Accel or B) a world-class track and field guy to have 80-some Accel.

The changes make Tennessee a B+ Offense and a B Defense, which I also can't complain too terribly much about, all things considered. One interesting note is that Alabama is downgraded from the A+ Juggernaut EA Sports gave them to a more realistic A Overall, A+ Offense, A- Defense. So, yeah, I like these rosters.

I'm hoping to do an "EA Sports Says" preview of each game each week, so here's hoping that that works out.
