It shouldn't surprise anyone that Jeff Demps is the fastest player in NCAA Football 12: he is, of course, a world-class sprinter who happens to play college football, and he has long been known as one of the fastest players on a team that was constructed to be the fastest team in America.

But him being the fastest player in NCAA 12 — he's the only player in the game with a 99 rating for speed, and boasts one of under 10 99s awarded in acceleration, which makes virtual Demps a great speed back with great burst — may be more fun than him being the fastest player in college football. In real life, Charlie Weis et al. have to worry about Demps getting hurt, or Demps' limitations as a receiver; in NCAA, you can run as many Jet Sweeps with Demps as you like, or sub him out to wide receiver and hot route him to 9s all day. If he gets hurt? IT'S A VIDEO GAME, HIT RESET. (Oh, man, there is a generation of children who never had consoles with reset buttons. I am ancient.)

I got NCAA 12 yesterday (I know, slow, whatever) and I'll probably be sharing some of the observations I glean from it here this week. And I know I'll be having fun, because I will also be figuring out the best ways to clown fools with Jeff Demps.
