I just saw this on ESPN, crazy stuff.  I might have to run out and buy NCAA 14 now.

All this is saying is that the NCAA name and logo won't be in any more EA games. Still possible we would get a college football game. But then again this could be the beginning of the end.

I haven't read the article yet. But I swear that part of a past trial agreement that EA had to promise not to renew the current license. I'm sure there will be a new general agreement that will remove any exclusivity from a publisher.

It looks like this is the end of NCAA Football, but in name only.

From Operation Sports:

UPDATE: Brett McMurphy of ESPN is reporting ESPN has been told EA Sports will still have a college football video game beyond 2014, next year's game will be called College Football 15.

UPDATE #2: According to ESPN's Sports Business reporter Darren Rovell the CLC, which handles school, bowl, awards, etc. licensing, says it plans to work with EA in the future despite the NCAA dropping out.

UPDATE #3: EA Sports Executive Vice President Andrew Wilson speaks. In a statement, Wilson said, "EA SPORTS will continue to develop and publish college football games, but we will no longer include the NCAA names and marks. Our relationship with the Collegiate Licensing Company is strong and we are already working on a new game for next generation consoles which will launch next year and feature the college teams, leagues and all the innovation fans expect from EA SPORTS.

Yeah I thought I read the NCAA doesn't actually license the schools or conferences, only the NCAA name and logo. I think they are probably trying to distance themselves from the lawsuit going on right now about profiting off of player likenesses.

Could easily see "ESPN College Gameday 2015" or something next year. Of course, maybe this will also open the door for "Tim Tebow College Football 2k15" Dance

Not necessarily. As I understood it, the SEC logo and stuff like that is out, but it's up to individual teams whether they are willing to be licensed or not. This ESPN article actually says that the CLC deal DOES include licensing agreements in place with some SEC schools. But it's kind of unclear whether that means in general, or for the game specifically.

http://m.espn.go.com/ncf/story?storyId=9566556&src=desktop&wjb

The Southeastern Conference has joined the NCAA in announcing it will no longer license its trademarks in the EA Sports NCAA football video game.
The move comes a month after the NCAA said it would not license its trademarks, either. That ruling, however, allowed each individual institution and conference to license its trademarks with EA Sports for future college football games.
"Each school makes its own individual decision regarding whether or not to license their trademarks for use in the EA Sports game(s)," the SEC said in a statement. "The Southeastern Conference has chosen not to do so moving forward.
"Neither the SEC, its member universities, nor the NCAA have ever licensed the right to use the name or likeness of any student to EA Sports."
The Collegiate Licensing Company recently announced it completed licensing agreements for approximately 150 of the institutions it represents, including some SEC institutions.

University of Washington will not be present in the next NCAA Football game.

MAJOR blow now that real schools are bowing out. I expect a domino effect. NCAA 14 may just be our longest running Online Dynasty ever. Very Happy

Yea, conferences are one thing, but With UW being the first school to check out I'm afraid you may be right... This is not heading in the direction us NCAA video game fans were hoping... 

Thankfully, this years game is the best one as far as gameplay, since its looking like it may need to last us a couple years until they get all this sorted out...

If it keeps going down this road, I fully expect folks on Operation Sports would put out an NCAA15 roster for this game. So, at least we'd have that to look forward to.

I saw this coming when schools and conferences started to drop out. This bums me out. This is the one game I must play every year. I guess I will play the heck out of 14 for a couple of years. No need for me to get a Ps4 anytime soon now.

Same here man.  I've always been an NFL fan over a college football fan and still am.  However, I've said it before but since NCAA11, I've actually enjoyed playing NCAA more than Madden.

The more I think of it though, its not a bad idea.  Maybe we have our own Mythical Playoffs at the end of each season.  Maybe we take the Top 4 User teams based on the Final BCS rankings and have a playoff at the end of the season.  It can also be a way to pass time during the offseason.

Thoughts?

I wouldn't expect much more updates or anything either for the game. Seems like the NCAA team is totally disbanded.

We'd have to use the default rosters for the mythical user playoffs.  It obviously wouldn't be anything official, just something different to do while we pass the time of the offseason.

As for updates, once they didn't release a patch in August I kind of figured we weren't going to get any updates.  No matter though because I like the game the way it is.
