Default The first domino of the Ed O'Bannon case has fallen

NCAA opts not to renew contract with EA Sports | Campus Union - SI.com

No more EA Sports games with the NCAA license. At one time NCAA football, basketball, and baseball had video games. This officially spells the end of NCAA Football, the only surviving NCAA video game. Gotta believe this in direct relation the Ed O'Bannon case where athletes are suing for using their likeness in video games.

Stinks as a gamer.

there is also a lot of internal stuff going on at EA right now, but yeah you are probably right or everyone will be "Player" on fake team names for a bad NCAA game.

I used to love renting NCAA FB and simming seasons to take the guys to Madden for drafts, including the monster player I made myself

They have already confirmed it will be College Football 2015 next year, looking forward to seeing how that will go with no player traits, logos, and names.

I didn't think of the possibility of them moving forward without the license.

Personally I don't see how it will work. What will they do for teams if they can't use the college names?

It's the million dollar question. But the NCAA Football market was too big to let all college football video games die, guess they will try to find a way to make it work.

They may just do a team for every state ? Perhaps ? That can't be illegal

They will make similar teams and logos. Look at that iPhone 9 innings game

Schools can license their own logos.. They basically can't use NCAA logos.

NCAAF NCAA to end deal with EA Sports - ESPN
