Who Does Asaph Schwapp Know at EA Sports?

Found this image of the Notre Dame player ratings from this year’s NCAA Football 2009 on the message board today.

It was inevitable that the Irish wouldn’t get much love from the folks at EA this year after last season, but Schwapp rated the 7th best player on the team over Darrin Walls, Duval Kamara, Jimmy Clausen, RObert Hughes, etc? And Duncan rated as the 4th best?

Other than that, the ratings look at least far. I would have had Bruton as the top rated player in the game if I worked for EA.

I know most of the readers here might not be big video game fans, but hey its the off-season and I can admit to spending way too much time playing NCAA Football over the years.

    What they should do for ratings is take trusted bloggers and people around the program to make ratings, not some average joe at EA Sports who hasn’t seen an ND game for 3 years.

    Bruton’s numbers are all messed up.

    His speed, agility, acceleration, awareness and tackling are all too low.

    Amen, DomerDave03 on “thunder and lighting” We must have our best people on the field this year or we will not like the results.

    This playing favorites has to go! Produce or ride the pine. Not a new concept.

    JC, I agree with you half way on this one. I would like to see some formations with Allen and Hughes a la Brooks and Bettis “thunder and lighting” however I think the guy who needs to be getting a lot more reps is LUKE Schmidt. We need to get this kid on the field badly. Woodstock don’t get me wrong I hear what you are saying I just don’t think he is that bad and I hate and will never bash an ND player

    As usual I will be doing some serious roster editing.Small sacrifice when you consider how awesome this game is. New feature this season that I’m already prepared for is having just over 20 situations for user entered mp3’s!!!! Want to hear the Celtic Chant when the Irish D is trying for a 3rd down stop? Done! Want to hear the Victory Clog after a TD? Done. This game is going to be awesome.

    We need to move one or two of our talented supersized tail backs to full back. Enough of this block only talent.

    I’m fine with the differing opinions as long as the debate remains civil.

    When it comes to the debate about #44, I tend to agree more with Woodstock. He needs to spend less time in the weight room and more time running through the gauntlet with the ball. I think he tends to look for the big hit too often as well which leads to a lot of miss blocks.

    Unfortunately, we don’t really have much depth behind him pushing him in practice. Competition breeds improvement.
