Coaching Adjustments was a popular feature in our NCAA Football series. For those of you who’ve played NCAA Football, you'll recognize elements of this feature and will have a general idea of how it works. With a few tweaks, you can become a pick machine. But every adjustment carries risk. So, below we have explored all the Coaching Adjustments you can make.
The Coaching Adjustments option is located on the front page of the play call screen. This is for both offense and defense. Once the user selects the Coaching Adjustment option, they'll be taken to the next page, which contains the list of Coaching Adjustments available for the side of the ball they’re playing. By default, each adjustment is set to Balanced. This means standard gameplay conditions apply based on the mode the user is in. If you want to be more nuanced than that, then keep reading.

Cornerback Matchups is a Coaching Adjustment that allows the player to set what criteria they want to use to determine which wide receivers their CBs matchup against. Cornerback Matchups work for both man and zone defenses. To maximize this feature's effectiveness, users ideally want to make sure the number of CBS on the field is equal to or greater than the number of WRs.
The options the user has available are:
By Overall – The highest-rated cornerback will matchup vs. highest-rated receiver.
By Speed – Fastest cornerback will matchup vs. fastest receiver.
By Height – Tallest cornerback will matchup vs. tallest receiver.
