They already attempted to get the NCAA license but the ncaa said the only way they would allow it is if their was zero ability to edit players or team. This obviously is a no go for many reason. Just do some research and you will get your answer.
Maybe I am wrong but I don't see a college game making it without a NCAA license. A college sports game is more then just playing the sport with college rules. Its the rivalries, traditions, the bands all of that fun stuff. I think EA and the NCAA can work this out and adding the college playoffs and a few teams is a good start

Yeah, not being able to edit players is a huge deal breaker. Also, playing with "South Bend" and "College Station" was OK with me 20+ years ago. But thats not an option for me any longer.

Either find a way to bring it back fully, or leave it be.

Screw You Ed Obannon!!!!

They should do what PES does. Contract with the schools they can and then just have a bunch of generic teams that are editable, mimicking the real life counterpart.

Have USC and Oregon already. Can add the Los Angeles Bears, Corvallis otters, Seattle dogs, etc etc

The problem for EA is a game like that wouldn't sell to the masses. Even one with full customization (which may or may not get them into more legal trouble). People here would buy it and there would be an active community here for it. But we are a very small subset of the overall sports gaming community. The amount of time and resources EA would devote to such a game would never be recovered. Unless they can find a way to include all the most popular teams a game won't ever happen.

Re: How is EA able to do NCAA football in this game.

I think this is a step in the right direction. Between the NBA series and now Madden. We are starting to see these schools giving companies the licensing rights. But still a long way to go.

I just wish Madden would give us the ability to do what NBA2k does with creating teams. But I'm sure the stuck up NFL would **** a brick. And EA is too lazy to put the work in.

You can make a college football video game without the NCAA license. That is what I was saying. When EA first started making Bill Walsh College Football in the 90s they didn't have the NCAA license. They had individual licenses with some schools (not all the schools) and made a game off that. Why can't they do the same thing again? NCAA can't say squat about them doing that because they don't control what the individual schools do. That is basically what we're already seeing in this face of the franchise mode. I fully believe it's the start of them working things out to bring back a college football game.
