NCAA Football 14 News Post


Things definitely look a bit dimmer after the NCAA convention, with any action on licensing of college player likenesses or apparel not seeing any movement during the yearly landmark meeting. I wrote an article on the possibility of new legislation making it possible for college sports games to make a return, but that simply didn't happen. We did see small hints that such a model will be viable in the future, but there are no signs an immediate return in the next 18 months is coming. Coming out of the meeting was landmark four year scholarships and full cost of attendance scholarships -- but no movement on the licensing of player likenesses.

While a future NCAA meeting will likely discuss this issue, thanks to the 'resolution to modernize the collegiate athletics model', until ongoing litigation is dealt with, there likely won't be any real movement.

I knew they should have put the playoffs in 14, this is going to drag a few years.

Good thing is if those ratings hold and grow even just a tad, I have no doubt by the end of the decade we will have a new game.

Such a bummer, just a few years back there was serious talk of adding NCAA to the NHL Series. Not a chance now.

I know we are at a point with little hope, but I want so badly to believe that the playoff system will somehow wake the guys with the decision in their hands that they are missing out on major profit by not putting out these games.

Wack, if they can make Mutant League Football, and Baseball Allstars, then they can make an indie College game. Hate to play the conspiracy label, but it had to be one that they aren't making these games. If a game is good it sells, and after all of this wait, people will buy.

Its really frustrating how slowly this process is moving, and how the video game issue isnt even being discussed at all.

This is where Madden needs to come in play. I would recommend that they integrate NCAA Football into Madden and here is how it is should go down. The idea would be that when you play career as a player or coach, you would start out in college and all the models are randomly generated (too avoid lawsuits), but fully editable like in NCAA Football games. You will only have up to 4 years and then head to the draft as a player or get offers as a coach, then you would progress into Madden.

There is no real need to make a NCAA Football game anymore because adding some features in Madden where draft classes and created players can still transfer into the Madden Game and you will have at least 4 seasons of college football, so it will be enough of filler until they work out all the legal stuff. It would keep the game going and greatly enhance Madden. The idea is raw, but I think it would be great to integrate the games.

I understand what you're saying, but in real life how many college coaches start getting NFL offers after just four years? Zero!

The other problem with your scenario is that there are those of us who much prefer the college game to the pro game... so while your idea would bring college gaming back... only being able to play it for four seasons would be a real drag.

Now... if you had the chance to return to college as a coach after your NFL career as a player ended, and you could stay in college IF you wanted to, that might be something that would work.

But there's no way people would want to be restricted to only four years of college and the rest being Madden...

The thought of a joint NCAA/Madden game it kind of exciting. IF they were able to be played essentially as they are now...but with added intertwining of the dynasty/franchises.

Could you imagine having a huge online dyachise with people coaching in the NCAA and NFL at the same time? They could synchronize the ratings system so the NCAA players are obviously worse, etc.

The storylines could be immense. A coach that gets bumped up to the NFL playing a team with a former player he coached or something. Talking about the crazy new #1 who tore it up in the NCAA last season.

Have a mode where you could play Ohio State against the Browns (just for the fun of it).

Naturally there are other things I'm probably missing that would be great, but still. It would be wonderful.

...but I dream.

Well, my idea was pointed towards the career mode and the more years to build up your rep and get hired at the NFL level as a coach, the better (player will be locked at four).

I think Madden needs to expand to include NCAA. It would be the ultimate football simulator.

great idea, and just dump the 4 year thing for those who want to coach.
