ESPN College Hoops 2K5 Legacy Notes

Here are a couple of notes about Legacy mode in College Hoops this year:
--Check out your coach's office when you start a new Legacy. The prestige of your program will determine the quality of your office. I look like I'm in a basement. As your program improves, so do your digs. That's a small but nice touch.
--The designers have done an excellent job of making it easier to move through the interface. In the past, and with almost all sports games I've ever played, Franchise modes make heavy use of nested menus. Once you get in three or four layers deep, you have to get out the same way, and it's mind-numbingly repetitive. This year in College Hoops, though, when you're in a Legacy menu, you can push the Right analog stick and bring up a quick-menu with multiple functions. In most cases, you'll get to where you need to go with a single button press. Great design.
