"Wild Hog" formation:
Select Arkansas or the Arkansas playbook, then go to formation "Wildcat" and choose the "HB QB sub".
Better trophies in Dynasty mode:
When making your schedule, add as many ranked teams as possible. Try and go against the #1, #2, or #3 ranked team the most.
Faster trophies in Dynasty mode:
Choose a highly ranked team with good ratings (for example, USC or Michigan) and enter Dynasty mode. Simulate to the end of the season and simulate all bowl games to earn two to four trophies, depending on how well your team did. Then, save your profile, but not your dynasty. Exit the Dynasty mode and repeat as many times as desired.
Making a better team in Dynasty mode:
Take control of eight teams at one time. You can try doing this with the entire Ivy League, but it is harder. Mid-major conferences work better, such as teams like Akron, Toledo, Idaho, etc. During pre-season recruiting, scout only five and four-star recruits and have each of the eight teams scout the exact same fifteen players. Since a scout can only have a list of eight possible choices, he will have to select one of your schools. You will soon have five-star prospects signing with teams like New Mexico State or Idaho rather than Virginia Tech, USC, or Texas. However, this trick only works during in-season recruiting. However, if you do this for a couple years, your team will be considerably better.
Drafting prospects in Dynasty mode:
-When beginning the season, create a prospect and make sure to make his home state where your team is located. Then, speak with him on the phone about where he lives and the college being close. Most of the time, you will get a high ranking for that action.
-During preseason in Dynasty mode, create a prospect that plays as a kicker or punter-- no matter what position you want to create. Make their hometown close to your campus and customize the player to be as good at another position as desired, then set their kick power and kick accuracy to 0. They will be in the prospect database as a one star recruit and will not usually even be offered a scholarship by other schools. Offer them a scholarship and they will usually commit instantly. For example, if you make a one star kicker that no team wants he will be ranked 99 as a QB.
-Start a new dynasty. Before the first game of the season, select your best 35 recruits whether they are the most interested or highest caliber. After adding the recruits but before you play the first game, make sure that you save your dynasty. Begin at the top of your recruiting board with the first recruit and start trying to unlock different pitches. Spend as much time as desired on any recruit. When you run out of time, just go back and reload the dynasty from the "Dynasty Setup" menu. Each time you unlock a pitch in the "Very High" or "Most" category, write it down. After you have worked the full list, which can take awhile, go back to your dynasty and load it from the beginning. You now have a full list of correct pitches to make to your recruits. Note: Each recruit will only have one "Most" pitch and two "Very High" pitches. Always try to sway any pitch that is "High" to the "Very High" setting.
Easy trophies for showcase:
Go to the "Play Now" screen and pick two teams that can play for a rivalry trophy (for example, Iowa State and Iowa). Then, go to the stadium's weather options and change the quarter length to one minute. Play the game, but do not switch teams in the middle or you will not receive the trophy added.
Jumping the field:
When you are about five yards from the opponent's end zone, choose a HB Dive as a play. As soon as the HB gets the ball, tap SQUARE to dive over the defenders and get a TD.
Max stats in Campus Legend mode:
Create a character with maximum stats and start a new Campus Legend mode. Instead of starting from scratch in high school, load your created character.
Boost GPA in Campus Legend mode:
A great way to boost your GPA is by doing extra studying. Certain events like this are finishing a project in the library (+.4 GPA), fixing your computer for homework (+.2 GPA), or just studying when you have free time (+.1 GPA)
Exporting senior to Madden 08 in Campus Legend mode:
When you start your senior season and already have legend status, you will get the option of staying for your senior year or exporting your legend to Madden 08. Stay for your senior year and at the end you can export you legend, even after your senior year.
Seminole War Canoe missing from shrine glitch:
Play and win the game between Florida and Miami to get the Seminole War Canoe. It appears under Rivalry in the "Trophy View" menu. However, it is nowhere to be found in your shrine.
Telephone trophy has wrong colors and team:
Win the game between Missouri and Iowa State to unlock the Telephone trophy, then go to your shrine and open the trophy menu. Press X on the Telephone trophy to view it up close. Turn the trophy around to see the back, then look up at the telephone at the top of the trophy. Instead of Missouri and their colors on the back of the telephone, it is Michigan's name and colors.
