    Welp, No more EA NCAA Football games...

    Didn't see this posted yet...Press Release - NCAA.org

    Hedging their bets in the Ed O'Bannon lawsuit.

    Edit: There will be an EA College Football game next year, but it's not going to be licensed by the NCAA (No school names, logos or mascots)

    Where did you hear this? Technically speaking each School has rights to their own trademark and brand so they can do whatever they damn well please.

    The NCAA says that all these things have been licensed from the individual schools, so it would seem you could still have a "college football" game with school names, logos, mascots, just no NCAA branding

    Re: Welp, No more EA NCAA Football games...

    Am I reading this wrong? It looks like this is just the NCAA pulling out. The schools are handled individually. Does anybody care if they remove any NCAA logos from the game? If the schools, stadiums, mascots, and fight songs are all still there, then game on.

    I just realized that we won't get an official NCAA game with the playoffs in it...

    Exactly. The NCAA branding is pretty much irrelevant to football anyways.

    You could just call it EA sports college football or something like that...and use the schools that participate.

    The original EA Sports college football game was just like that. They didn't have the rights to the school names or logos so they just called them the city where they were located & gave them the school colors

    As long as they can use the likeness of the teams, individuals can make their own rosters and share them. Still, I think this might start a chain reaction that ends the game. Not the final nail in the coffin by any means.
