So far, I'm pretty happy

I used the Powerup Rewards coupon to buy NCAA Football 12 for the 360 (19.99 with no trade-ins!!!!!) and I'm pretty impressed so far.
I started a Road to Glory character of myself as a QB for Hollywood Hills High School (class of 94). After about 5 minutes of playing around with the creation mode, I was on the field completing 15 of 17 passes for over 200 yards. What impressed me the most, and I certainly hope the rest of the mode is like this, is the ability to skip every non-passing play in the game. Playing sports games has become very difficult since the birth of my son. The time commitment of an entire football or baseball game makes these games nearly unplayable for me. I bought MLB 2k11 the day it launched and I've only been able to play one round of home run derby. With this new skip-ahead mode, I was able to play an entire game in about 10 minutes.
I've never been able to get very far in any dynasty mode because I just get bored of playing every single down. I know that there are sim modes available, but I want to be able to ensure that my player gets his numbers. With this skip-ahead mode, I can monitor the score of the game and the situation and take control of the QB on running plays and audible out.
If this mode was available in previous NCAA's, I apologize in advance for this entry, but I give kudos to EA for this mode. It's a blessing to be able to enjoy a football game when my son takes a nap. If not, I'd have to play into the middle of the night, which doesn't go well with having to be at my desk by 0715 in the morning.
I'll keep everyone up to date on how my QB is doing. I'm hoping to get a scholarship to the following schools in the order posted:
University of Miami
University of South Florida
United States Naval Academy
