Default Last year for NCAA football ?

Just saw this:

NCAA will not renew EA Sports contract

The NCAA has made the decision not to enter a new contract for the license of its name and logo for the EA Sports NCAA Football video game. The current contract expires in June 2014, but our timing is based on the need to provide EA notice for future planning. As a result, the NCAA Football 2014 video game will be the last to include the NCAA’s name and logo. We are confident in our legal position regarding the use of our trademarks in video games. But given the current business climate and costs of litigation, we determined participating in this game is not in the best interests of the NCAA.

The NCAA has never licensed the use of current student-athlete names, images or likenesses to EA. The NCAA has no involvement in licenses between EA and former student-athletes. Member colleges and universities license their own trademarks and other intellectual property for the video game. They will have to independently decide whether to continue those business arrangements in the future

I'm confused though. Does that mean each college/university can still decide if they want to continue or not? I read it as the "NCAA" isn't renewing the contract, but it's up to each school what they want to do.

So could there still be a game but without the "NCAA" branding?

Ok, I've been giving it some thought this afternoon and watched some reviews on youtube.

for example....


Considering this is the last game and the reviews are pretty good.....I'm going to pick it up later tonight.

I think Xboxjon, Drake, Juji, and the rest of the dynasty team builder crew should pick it up also and we'll revive our dynasty again Always loved building my own school!

This is not good news, I love the NCAA games, me and Daly are already almost through our second season in our dynasty that we started a week ago haha. This game is great and the online dynasty is addicting.

Ah, good point. Personally, I would probably prefer fake bowls. I always ended up in the stupid bowl games that you don't want to brag about

"Famous Idaho Potato Bowl"

"Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl"

"Chick-fil-A Bowl"

"San Diego County CU Poinsettia Bowl"



For those that don't know, I don't follow NCAA Football at all so accuracy isn't a big deal to me. I like having the real school names though. As BBB mentioned, the TeamBuilder is my thing even though I like playing against real schools.

Speaking of BBB's TeamBuilder post, I still love the idea of it and would like to do it again sometime. I just won't be buying this version. There are maybe two games I'll be buying for current Gen consoles. Until then, I'm just rolling with what I currently have.

Even if this happens I wouldn't be getting it, simply wouldn't be near the same.
