In sports, you constantly hear the phrase "Speed Kills" during games or evaluations of certain players. Or, at least, you hear it from Gavin Rossdale and Bush, but I can never be too sure.
In college football, the term "speed kills" is correct. A team with a fast player, whether they are a running back, wide receiver or cornerback, could be the difference between your favorite team going to a BCS bowl or playing in the Papa John's/Goodyear Tire/Google Bowl. If a team has a player that is fast, that team has a game changer.
The same logic applies for EA Sports NCAA Football 14.
If you enjoy playing with the University of Oregon in the video game, you are probably a pro at running their spread option attack with. They have by far some of the fastest players I have seen. You are also probably the users who beat me constantly online with the Ducks.
