Sure, just about anyone will enjoy firing up EA Sports' NCAA Football '14 so they can crush people left and right by handing the ball to Bo Jackson in Ultimate Team mode, but what kind of courage does that take.  Jackson will be rated 99 in the important categories for a running back, like speed and power, so there's not much strategy involved in rampaging over you opponent. If you want a real challenge in the Ultimate Team mode with Auburn, you'll ignore Bo Jackson (much like Pat Dye did in 1984 on the goal line against Alabama) and choose to run the offense through a pair of Auburn legends, combined into one legend for the purposes of not having to shuttle quarterbacks in and out. Thanks to the wizards at EA Sports, you have the opportunity to run an offense with the morphed body and skills of Chris Todd and Brandon Cox, who, surprisingly enough, are not the same person.  Advantages include being able to throw with either hand and stamina that allowed them to combine for 19 years as Auburn's starting quarterback. And as an added bonus, the individual skill ratings are totaled by adding both players' ratings, so you'll get twice the speed and throwing power in one veteran, non-boat-rocking quarterback. SO MUCH FINESSE*. *Not being able to spell "finesse" is EA's problem, not mine.  I am a champion of spelling and literacy**. **Googled how to spell "finesse" because that is my primary way to check spelling.
