Hey everybody, I figured that since most of us love NBA video games, we also are very likely to be into other sports.
So here it is, for everybody out there who doesn't have the time to make a story but still wants to talk/brag about it, here is the place to do it.
Use this thread for FIFA, PES, Madden, NCAA Football, NCAA Basketball, College Hoops 2k series or whatever other sport floats your boat. If a mod can please sticky this thread, then that would be greatly appreciated.
Anyways, I'll start things off with my newest College Hoops 2k8 Career Legacy. 26 year old coach Watson has landed his first Division 1 gig in Greeley, Colorado with the University of Northern Colorado Bears. It is the 2007/08 season and the school has only recently been admitted into Division 1 athletics and the Big Sky Conference (Rodney Stuckey played at Eastern Washington the prior year). I've got a lot of work ahead of me to build this program from the ground up and hopefully advance my own career prospects.The university's mascot, "Klawz"
Anyways, I've started the season 1-1. I opened the season with in a non-conference tournament and lost in the semi to VMI by about 15 points. I held scoring gun Reggie Williams (now with the Golden State Warriors IRL) to 10 points on 4/15 shooting, but one of his other teammates tore my defence to pieces. I picked up a simulated hoopcast win in the third place game against Air Force, who were hosting the tournament. I came from behind in the second half as I increased the tempo of the game and the Falcons folded.
As far as team personnel goes, I've got a couple of good seniors (5th year centre Kirk Archebique and sharpshooting guard Sean Taibi). I've got about 4 solid point guards on the roster but none stand out. Outside of Archebique, by team lacks a bit of height, with my PF's all around 6'6". That should come as no surprise though, since I'm at a small school, but I will definitely be looking to recruit some more bigs.
My team's primary defence is a 1-3-1 zone. Secondary defence is 3-2 zone. Pressure defence is a 1-3-1 matchup. Press defence is half court trap & I also do a little bit of 2-2-1 full court. I run a motion offence, although given my team's personnel I might change it until I can recruit for my system.
Any comments as always are appreciated. Please share your own stories too. Once I get back into FIFA 10, I'll share my Southampton manager mode story too
