    NCAA will not renew contract with EA

    http://www.ncaa.org/wps/wcm/connect/...ports+contract

    Wow my mouth dropped when I saw this tweeted. I guess it shouldn't be as much of a surprise considering the lawsuit with Ed O'Bannon that has been ongoing but it still hurts. For someone that looks forward to this game every year it is really a disappointment to imagine no more NCAA from EA. I hope someone else can pick up the torch soon.

    They will still keep putting the games out. It just wont be called EA Sports NCAA Football 15, etc.

    I think because of the O'bannon suit the Universities will stay away from Video games. Besides, the NCAA is controlled by the Universities, so I think they have spoken.

    Heard on College Football Playbook (Sirius) that Collegiate Licensing Company will be EA's Partner for the next series. Owned by Alabama AD Bill Battle.

    Architects do it with models.

    I wonder with the discussion of the new power conferences being considered, if they'll consider making the game again with only the power conferences.

    Thanks for bumping this thread and re-opening old wounds, now I'm mad all over again. Just pay the players already so we can have our football video game again!
