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

They still have college things like the florida state warchant and other school fight songs. How are they able to do this after the lawsuit shut it down?

Why dont they just make a new ncaa?

Because there are no actual player likeness and they got individual school approval from each available school that's used.

Correct.
Most schools are too worried about potential lawsuits so they do not want any involvement in the game.

I can see more schools agreeing to let Madden to use their likeness next year if they expand on the mode. But not enough schools to consider making a game

They answered it above, but while you are in that portion of the game make sure to check out the names they included for the players. You'll get some great laughs!

I don't see why they don't just do what they did at the beginning back in the 90s when it was called Bill Walsh College Football. They didn't have the NCAA license and they didn't have all the schools. But they had enough to make a game. All they've got to do is get approval from the universities and make sure they make completely random players with fake names instead of the way they used to do it.

Not quite, plus another developer making a college game just had to remove its file sharing capabilities. The lawsuit really changed things and made it very difficult to make an NCAA game that canít come under some kind of legal woes and still be marketable.

Just go buy Maximum Football 19. They're making huge strides for a 4 person development team. The more we invest in them the more they will be able to advance their game. EA isn't bringing back NCAA Football unless the NCAA agrees to pay the players. So basically you can forget about it. At least with the Maximum game you can go in and edit teams and players and they're making most of the schools similar to the real school so conversion should be easy. 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.

Just wanted to chime in and say itís actually just a 3 person team and only 1 (Dave) is an actual developer. Spear and Josh help with the other aspects
