    Has anyone who owns a digital copy of NCAA 14 tried installing CFB Revamped?

    You know me better than that Lion! I follow and look forward to adding those plays in my deadly playbook!

    Ralph Russo had an interesting point about Swarbrick's statement on his AP Top 25 podcast. Basically this is Swarbrick using our influence to try to get group licensing for players and schools. This is important because as the NIL stuff stands right now, players would be able to use their own likeness, but not marks from the schools. So our players could get endorsement deals, but not wearing their helmet or being described as a Notre Dame football players. If Swarbrick taking this stance helps get group licensing, then it really helps us because the players could use our brand and not just have to build their own.

    Honestly, as soon as Swarbrick's announcement came out I knew people would be jumping on that wagon because "Fuck Notre Dame." All the news places had to do was write the headline (and they did) "Notre Dame won't participate in new College Football Game" and the trolls would emerge. It's beyond frustrating.

    This. The game (unfortunately) won't be released until probably 2023, so there's plenty of time for ND to make the relaunched title.

    Agree 100%.

    The danger of NIL changes is rich getting richer - as ND fans that is a great thing. As college football fans it might suck.

    This. Totally. I like that Swarbrick is using NDs clout here. ND will have a great national advantage for national branding IMO and this puts them on a good front foot with future players.

It means getting some kind of compensation for their likeness being used to make sales and to also be able to consent, as adults, to their likeness being used.
    Yea, I think the difference is the ability to have ownership over their being (NIL). Imagine if your boss was able to just sell off the rights to your identity to make money and you had no say.

    Otherwise I agree that college athletes get an incredible amount of compensation, but for them not to have a say in whether they can be used and profited off of is pretty scummy. Even if they did sign contracts essentially allowing such a thing, it is not like they have much of an option.

    The new transfer rule is already making it easy for kids to quit on the school that has given these athletes everything. You start paying them and hold a video game hostage for money is going to ruin the game. It'll become the minor league of the NFL in a way.

    Typically I'd start at ND, make them unbeatable, leave after 5/6 years, take over Idaho, play ND first game of season, UPSET CITY!, only take in 2 and 3 star recruits, lose to Colorado St, repeat.

    Sometimes I'd start as a coordinator at Notre Dame and then accept a job at like a UCONN to see if I could run it into the ground---errr, build it into a national power.

    Damn I'm good?

    I don't -- sold it along with my paperweight PS3 when it broke ~7 years ago. Figured the games was useless due to PS4's lack of backwards compatibility :(

    Yeah, it would be one thing if the next gen release wasn't now officially looming...

My PS3 broke and I replaced it with a 4 or else I would still have it and would definitely set up Revamped, but I don't think it's worth investing in at this point. I'd rather put the money towards a next gen console I think.

    Underrated part of the mod: it downloads the game directly to your PS3, so you could put the game in its case and lock it away for safe keeping (or sell it, if you're really confident that the mods won't crash and you won't need to re-download in the future).
