People are constantly referencing Tecmo (Super) Bowl on the internet. Thank you.
A blogger has surmised that the lack of Mangino and his Tecmo-esque playbook was the reason that Kansas has gone from great offense to no offense. Personally, I think that Kansas is a garbage football school also is a factor.
If you are ever going to play The Rock in Tecmo, the key is to shutdown the Phil Simms to "Touchdown Maker" Stephen Baker......that and the threat of a DDT.
Craig "Ironhead Heyward", Tecmo Super Bowl's greatest kick returner and lover of Zest, has been in the news a bit because his son, Cameron Heyward, has been listed as a first round draft prospect. (Cameron went 31st to the Pittsburgh Steelers) While Cameron is a DE instead of a running back, he also is a large man with large head who popcorns people for a living.
The rise and demise of Tecmo Super Bowl: NFL team and player licensing
Tecmo is a wise teacher however the #1 lesson should always be that
Stopping Fumbles After Touchdowns (beta hack link)
[caption id=" align="alignright" width="350" caption="Sorry, this hack only applies to fumbles after you score, not because you were screwing around before you went to score.][/caption]
One of the first little quirks you learn about from playing Tecmo Super Bowl is that the referees turn a blind eye towards late hits....especially after a TD. Thus, every time someone has the audacity to punch in a score it was entirely possible to take out your frustrations of your inadequacies by leveling the offending ball carrier. It was even possible to steal the soul make the carrier fumble the ball....turning the background fans silent to the sound of the ball falling to the ground. This sort of vigilante justice had a side effect: If the man you had cowardly destroyed also fumbled the ball it turns out it also erased that 88 yard Bo Jackson TD run you just made...or any other stats involved with the score.
Finally, there is some justice for the player who not only just beat you but needs to point out Warren Moon threw for 340 and 5TDs, not 287 and 4TDs! Someone played enough games to realize that out of bounds runners don't fumble so why not apply this technology to TDs? After that resident Tecmo Hacking Savant JStout simply made it so.
Worry not, defensively poor Tecmo Players. Even though you might not be able to erase the evidence of your inadequacies, you can finally enjoy repeatedly diving on a stationary QB Eagles, guilt-free.
This isn't so much Tecmo related as it's Nintendo related. At the great SXSW movie festival they have what are called "Bumpers"....simply a fun short movie played before the actual movie. This particular one takes the story of Mario and puts a "reality" spin on it. Enjoy.
The 4th Annual Midwest Tecmo Tournament is quickly approaching, much like the NFL draft. (It's always held on the same weekend) Held just north of Cincinnati, OH, the tournament is famous for it's competition and once having David Fulcher in attendance.
There are still openings available in the tourney. Go to the forum to find out more information or contact tourney organizer Chris Vogt @ email@example.com
In case you haven't seen this (you're probably the only person on the internet considering it's 900k+ views), it's been the most popular Tecmo video. Watch Bo Jackson in all his 75 MS glory run circles around a hapless Patriots defense (the Colts would have been worse), time and again like a man among boys. Watch the greatest video game running back of all time almost score, get bored, run back to his own end zone, and torture the Pats until the quarter ends.
While this thing has been doctored a bit (paused, slow motion) it's not all that hard to reproduce if you have a little patience.
Over the years, many people have come up with the idea of mashing Fantasy Football with Tecmo. In other words, picking players from the game, simming the games and compiling the stats. For the first time in recorded modern history, such a league has been started and completed.
Our championship game featured the High Powered offense of Warren Moon, Earnest Byner, and David Meggett vs the master of the close game in Barry Sanders, Bobby Humphries, and a couple of WRs with running plays. On to the breakdown:

Some notes on the rom
(COA mode only) It's what I only play, so the only mode I'll make.
(11 on a side rosters) I'm not skilled enough to remove the players.
(old school playbooks/ 6 pass 1 run)
(18 game schedule)
