The gang over at SB Nation's college football page has some unofficial numbers that could be the ratings for EA's latest NCAA Football entry, NCAA '13, and WOAH, TEXAS: of all the teams rated, the Longhorns seem to be, uh, heavily endorsed by the digital community, sharing a status of a "99" overall team with real-world national title contenders Oregon, LSU, Wisconsin and USC:
(The numbers, in order, represent the overall rating, then offense, defense and "prestige," which affects your ability to recruit):
Baylor 87 88 84 3
Texas 99 91 99 6
SMU 89 89 84 3
TCU 93 94 87 5
We know Alabama lost a few members from its dominant national title winning defense, but even the Tide's D is rated a 95, four points lower than Manny Diaz's less than shutdown squad of 2011. These numbers might not be final, or might be bunk althogether, but NCAA 13 looks like a must-have for any Longhorns fan wanting to play out any number of BCS fantasies this fall.
