Well, I decided not to buy 08 after owning 07, which means I will definitely be buyin 09 (unless they take a few steps back, which I doubt).

But I decided to gamefly the 08 version.  So, if anyone wants a practice match against a newbie, I am game.  Plus, I got it because I am in another achievement whore competition (winner gets one year free to XBL gold), so if anyone wants to indulge me when I get it ......

Plus I am looking forward to see if there is going to be an 09 league going later this year.

I can almost guarantee that there will be an NCAA 09 league this summer. What nights and times are you available this week for a game?

If you see me on  (bdosg)  I can play. 

By the way, since you admitted to being an achievement whore, a little FYI.

Play 15 minute quarters
Use  USC  and  play against Buffalo or Temple
Simulate the entire game - this can now be done in-game
pile up amazing stats
get lots of achievements

Unless one of the patches fixed this any achievement gained through a simulation will count.

Decisions, decisions.

OK, I am past the achievement whoring portion of my week.  With 5 days left to go, the leader in the competition (I sh*t you not) has racked up 5000 achievement points in 9 days!!!  I am in fifth with about 800, although I saw early on it was a lost cause.

So now, what do I do?  I find myself enjoying NCAA 08, despite the fact that I have 07 and plan on buying 09.  Do I just keep it for another week or so or should I buy it from Gamefly, even though 09 comes out in 4 months?  The buy price is 27.99 and I have 5 bucks in coupons.

Guess I will try playing in dynasty mode and see how I feel after a few games before I decide.

It won't matter much once Rainbow Six and GTA come out though.  Plus if they ever patch MLB.  Damn, too many games, not enough time.  I thought post-Xmas was supposed to be a slowdown!

That's a tough choice. NCAA 08 is a very good game and is still popular among Brent, Ted and myself. I wouldn't be shocked if EA took a step back with 09 either.

If EA takes a step back 08 will be even cheaper then.

You only have around 4 months until 09 comes out. Just thought I would add that into the equation.

Nah, I might get strong this time and resist the temptation.  I see myself keeping it for at least a week or two to finish off a dynasty with my favorite college team though (USC, and no I am not one of those just getting on the bandwagon - I have been a fan of theirs since 1972).

One thing I notice is that this version of the game is taxing on my 360.  It seems to be constantly pulling data from the disc.  I hope it is only because I got a bad copy, 'cause otherwise my console is dying again.
