Eric Vs. 365 - Day 71 - NCAA Football 14

I miss NCAA Football, dang it. Just pay the players and do whatever it takes to bring it back because Madden is boring and college football was more fun. Of course, now my alma mater isn't even in FBS anymore, so I wouldn't be able to play as the University of Idaho anyway, but I still wants it. For day 71 of Eric Vs. 365 Eric played NCAA Football 14 and talks all sorts of crap about Boise State. Click to read more and watch the full episode.

This was a fun episode to record. I played Idaho vs. Boise State on the dumb blue turf and it turned out fantastically well both from a gameplay perspective as well as commentary. The game was close to start with and I honestly wasn't sure if I was going to win because Boise State just kept getting big plays and scoring easily early on, but eventually I found my rhythm on defense and the rout was on. The totally realistic rout that hasn't happened in decades. 

This episode was more than just a football game, though. I used it as an opportunity to tell stories about why I was always a Vandal and never a Bronco even as a kid. I also talk up the University of Idaho itself and encourage kids to go there as it is a great school - which BSU isn't ... - and a great community up in Moscow. I share a few tips for new college students that are quite useful as well. I had a good time with this one.

Remember kids: Boise State sucks.

Go Vandals.

Also, dang NCAA 14 is expensive these days. I'm glad I got a digital copy back in the day.
