Hello,
 I would like to know if you can make the following teams from 1968?

 Penn St.
 Texas
 Notre Dame
 Arkansas
 Kansas
 Georgia
 Missouri
 Purdue

 And, these teams from 1969:

 Arkansas
 Ohio St.
 U.S.C.
 Missouri
 L.S.U.
 Notre Dame
 U.C.L.A.

 Thank you for your time.
    PWA
We'd have to research that before we could provide a definitive answer.  Certain programs have the stats and information needed from those years, but most do not.  
We'd need time to specify which ones we could produce and which ones we couldn't.

I might be interested in the 1968 Oklahoma State team. The stats are available except I can't find stats for the place kicker or the punter. I have been using sports-reference.com/cfb for my stats. I know that WR Hermann Eben was the place kicker and QB Ronnie Johnson did the punting chores (he seemed to launch them into orbit and only about 30 yards downfield). But I can find no specific stats for them. What do you do in those situations? Do you use a generic card or do you decline to make the team? Thanks for your attention to this.

We don't like creating a team unless we have the stats or at least some adjacent clues.  Sacks weren't counted back in the day, so we go by TFL (specifically yards lost per TFL) or something like that.  We have used a kicker's career FG % a few times, as that's all that we could find.  But we'll spend hours on a team if it requires it - watching old game footage for every jersey number, etc.

We'll research the '68 Oklahoma State team and let you know.

I would also be interested in the 1968 Kansas JayHawks. Thanks Vic

We have everything for '68 OK State, except for the jersey numbers.

I am curious if the following teams might become available for purchase?
1980 Baylor Bears
1984 Maryland Terrapins
1983 East Carolina Pirates
I am trying to build up a collection of each school's best teams from the 80's and noticed these teams were not available.
Thank you for your time and for your great game.

@tdott71 We'll look into these teams and let you know.  '83 ECU is unlikely.

@tdott71 80 Baylor and 84 Maryland are a "yes."

We've updated our website to include them.  
Finding any kind of defensive stats for '83 ECU hasn't been fruitful.  Very interesting team, though.  Only 3 losses to the big 3 from FL, and all very close games.

@tdott71 We were able to create 83 ECU as well.  Helluva team!

@usbummer@comcast.net we've made a nearly playable '68 Oklahoma State team, but we haven't been able to find much in the way of jersey numbers or defensive stats/positions.

We can't really create any USC teams from the 60s, as the school itself doesn't even have those stats/rosters/leaders.
