    Do NFL players get paid for Madden?

    Someone tweeted that the most this will do is take away the name "NCAA" and the logo. It'll still probably be happening and be called something like "College Football 15" or something.

    That is good news, but since schools and conferences still have to allow the license, what if some school or a conference all together won't allow them to use their logo/likeness. Then we will have a problem. I just want the experience to feel Authentic. I hope they continue to do so.

    This basically means that conferences will act as licensing companies. The future of CFB gaming depends on if conferences are willing to hold up that weight themselves. If they are, it may also open the door for baseball and basketball to make a comeback.

    I would love a current or next gen college baseball game. I played the heck out of the two I had for the PS2.

    I believe those two games were cut because sales sucked.

    Yep, at least that is what I heard about basketball. The fan base for college basketball and baseball just are not high enough to support a game. If everyone who watched the sport bought it, then maybe. Unless EA wants to try one with the new ignite engine, I doubt it makes a come back.

    I didn't even know College baseball had a game.

    College basketball has a pretty damn large fan base (not close to football of course) and 2k Sports made a pretty high selling (and damn good) game. But then I believe EA Sports gained sole rights to NCAA sports and their game was just awful.

    I'll wager that Mike Slive is having wet dreams over this. EA can do an SEC team game. In addition to money going to the schools and conference a portion can go into a player fund. SOS wants each player to get $300 per game. This could fund that. If the NCCA objects it will just hasten their demise.

    I expect next year's game to be called College Football 15 or ESPN College Football 15 with their partnership with ESPN.

    I could see the ESPN thing. In one of the comments of the articles I read someone suggested rebranding like Madden and naming it after a legendary coach.

    Spurrier College Football 15

    But seriously now that you mention it ESPN College Football 15 seems extremely likely. But they may go with EA College Football to avoid any future licensing issues.

    I would hope they don't call it Bear Bryant College Football 15... then we would just have something else to listen to Alabama brag about.

    here's an interesting article. of particular note is the segment discussing the licensing of universities for future games...apparently that CLC agreement doesn't include everybody. i dunno...i'm going to remain optimistic/hopeful, but slightly skeptical for the time being...i'm not 100% convinced that we're going to see a college football game like we're used to seeing:

    Sweet! EA has always shat the bed when it comes to the NCAA games rosters are not evaluated properly some teams get historically higher rankings for being a national name. I may buy now.
