NCAA Football 2010: WAC-specific features we might be seeing

New, comments

When EA Sports' NCAA Football 2010 hits stores on July 14, there will be no Bronco on the cover. My Vinny Perretta write-in campaign failed miserably. There will be a massive CGI overhaul of Bronco Stadium. R.I.P, Corey Barton Touchdown House. And there could very well be a feature like this:

In addition to Dynasty, there is now an "Alternate Reality" mode where the season ends in a playoff that still doesn’t include Utah or Boise State.

Would anyone be surprised?

This fake feature is one of several semi-believable NCAA 2010 features that Third Saturday in Blogtober came up with for the upcoming video game release. And their list, with a large SEC/ACC tilt, got me thinking about what a WAC-specific feature list might look like.

(Speaking of a WAC-specific NCAA 2010 video game, what would the market be like for one of those? Chase Holbrook? Karl Benson's grandchildren? I imagine that it would be terribly cost-prohibitive, kind of like the Independence Bowl.)

So without further ado, here are 10 features that could work for NCAA Football 2010: The WAC. If I left any out, let me know in the comments.

  • The Vandals not having the state of Idaho on their recruiting map.
  • The option to have the Boise State head coach provide a press release every offseason to dispel Internet rumors that he's taking the Mississippi State job. 
  • The Konami Code resuscitates the San Jose State head coach whenever he has "a moment."
  • Unlockable all-time WAC team, which is basically just the 2006 Broncos with Colt Brennan as a backup quarterback.
  • In offseason mode, five-star recruits openly laugh in the face of the New Mexico State coaching staff.
  • A "Preseason" mode, where a conference champion is crowned before the team ever takes the field.
  • Fresno State always has a Carr brother to recruit.
  • The mercy rule for when you're behind 70-0.
  • Updated graphics engine that actually shows trash blowing around on Hawaii's home field.
  • Robb Akey's mustache as a playable character.
