1.  PURPOSE OF FAQ

The purpose of this FAQ is to list all of the formations that
are found in the game, according to team playbook name.
This provides a handy reference, if you are looking for 
particular formations to use when choosing which playbook
you want for your team.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.  LEGEND

Base Formations:

Ace = Ace 
FB = FlexBone
I = I Form
Pro = Pro Form
SG = ShotGun
ST = Strong
WB = WishBone
WK = Weak

Special Formations:

MaryI = Maryland I
NOBack = No Back
PowerI = Power I  

Formation Versions:

2BSl = 2BSlot
5W = 5 Wide
N = Normal
Sl = Slot
Sp = Spread
Split = Split
Ti = Tight
Trp = Trips
Tw = Twins
Wide = Wide
YTrp = Y-Trips

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.  HOW TO READ THE CHART

The Chart is really straight Forward.  It basically shows you a mix of
Base Formation, Special Formation, and Formation Version.

This is how you read the playbooks:

[BaseFormation]-[FormationVersion1]-[FormationVersion2]-[FormationVersion3]

Example:

WK-N-Sl-TW Translates to Weak-Normal, Weak-Slot, Weak-Twins

When you see a semicolon, that separates a formation from 
the other formations.  

There are a few of the special formations, that have no formation 
versions. They are noted above in the "Legend" section.

6.  CREDITS

Credit goes out to UKFan, stephen@theleons.org, because on his
website I saw the NCAA 2002 playbooks from last year, at
http://theleons.org/stephen/ncaa.

Prior to posting this FAQ, I can say that in several locations you
might be able to find this same information, since it is no
great relevation, and it took no great thought on my part.  All it
took was one and a half hours of my time to scroll through the
playbook section portion of "My Profile" changing playbooks and scrolling
through formations.  

The information contained within this FAQ can probably only be 
claimed as intellectual property by EA Sports, and maybe the NCAA.
Posting what formations are included in the game is by no means an 
indication that I am the first or last person to do this, but by
submitting this faq myself, I say that I compiled this information
on my own.
