    EA stopped producing a college football video game back in 2014.

          I figured this deserved its own thread. BKess, fire up the dynasty.

            I am so glad I went rogue and bought a PS 5 "for my son". My wife looked at me like I was nuts, but it was totally worth it.

              Here is the most current list of CLC members. Notre Dame is not a member of the CLC.

                ND, Ohio State, USC are all going to ban together and demand a king's ransom for licensing.

                I could also see ND flat out refusing to join regardless, based on what we've heard from Jack Swarbrick in regards to NIL rights. He wants to "champion" athletes' rights in regards to NIL, but to him that means not signing a deal with EA if he doesn't think ND athletes are getting a fair share based on their perceived value as members and representatives of the university.

                It may take the student athletes in '22-'23 telling him that they aren't worried about playing hardball as long as they can be in the game, to get ND to join up.

                    First thing that came to mind was our old dynasty days! I hope we can recreate those days again!

                          There is quite literally only one video game that could make me buy a new console for the first time since college.

                          Never thought I'd see this day.

                              True, I think my kid will need a PS 6 then. When he goes to college it will be tougher to say it is for him.

                              My wife will be going to sleep alone for a long time when this gets released. My dynasty needs me.

                                                Looks like ND, UGA, Oregon, Miami, Wisky and Kentucky are with fermata http://fermatacollege.com/universities/

                                                I get the impression there's no CLC exclusivity and EA is starting there because it's the largest bloc of CFB licenses. Hopefully, they'll negotiate with other licensing companies as well.

                                                    pretty much the way it goes in soccer games (football manager etc) the producers have to negotiate with various football associations/leagues separately to get them into their games

                                                      I think it's more likely EA and ND negotiate a sweeter deal separately than ND not being in the game IMO.

I'd sign every pass-catching TE I could get, switched them to WR, and then couldn't be stopped when running the ball outside and with options. TE's blocking DB's breaks the game lol.

I'll go weeks without playing if I'm really into a show or a good book, but then sometimes the mood hits and I'll play two or three games in an evening.

                                                                        I keep it fun by leaving my program after I get them up to a 99 overall and jump ship for some shit team. Right now I'm at Marshall; take over the patsy 70 something overall, build them up, win a few Natties; wash rinse and repeat.

They would always have their own logo on the load screen because they would be negotiated independently. I would expect the same with this as well. No way ND wouldn't want to be included if the other major players are in the game.

They would always have their own logo on the load screen because they would be negotiated independently. I would expect the same with this as well. No way ND wouldn't want to be included if the other major players are in the game.
                                                                                                  I know they are going to be in the game, but it would be funny to say University of Our Lady of The Lake or Vatican State in the game.
