      Really good listen if I say so myself. Lots of details that even we weren't fully aware of that came out of the podcast.

      Ya, I'm really liking the chatter. I think that will really add to the immersion factor. Small detail but I like the fact that you can now use player lock but keep the same camera angle...did I hear that correctly?

      One question...do you guys have any idea if they'll add a stadium sound for the 'hype video' when entering a game? Or does that kind of replace the runout cutscene from years past?

      - That is correct. That was something we learned for the first time as he discussed it in the podcast.

      - They will not be. They have hired a composer to write numerous songs (& song types) to play during the pre-game opening, but there will not be a Stadium Sound event for it.

      IIRC, in the podcast something was said about being able to schedule neutral site games anytime during the season right? One question I had about neutral site games is this: Are we only able to schedule the user controlled team for a NSG or will we have the ability to schedule the CPU to play in a NSG?

      You can only move user-controlled teams into neutral site games, meaning your team in solo dynasty. Commish can set matchups via custom schedules in online dynasty.

      I assume conference games are still locked and unchangeable?

      You cannot change the team (and I assume not designated home team), but you can change your conference game locales to a NSG. (Or the commish can do it in an OD.)

      Hopefully in the demo we will be able to play the different cams.

      Oh hell, that's good enough for me right there! I'm not worried about changing the team or designated home team, but being able to do an occasional NSG vs conference opponents is great!

      That is awesome. So when I make my 16 team Big 12 I can play OU at SMU in say, Cowboys Stadium, instead of their smaller stadium.

      I'm interested in the impact players aspect. The way my offense usually works my impacts are almost inevitably going to turn into my QB and TE on offense and my MLB on defense.

      The uniform packages that were purchased in Ncaa 13, Will they be updated in Ncaa 14 already? Or will they rollover in to 14? Not sure if​I am making sense.
