I enjoyed Skyrim and Battlefront back in the day (haven't played new one yet), but NCAA was the only game that ever made into a "gamer". Would make me buy a console again. NCAA was life in the childhood of Dr. Toboggan.

I don't have a current generation system because I'm not paying for something I'd touch a few times during the summer.

If NCAA comes back, I'd go out and buy one just for that game as that's the only game I play. That's the only reason I even asked for a PS2 for Christmas when I was a kid. That game. 

I use the current rosters on NCAA 13 (13 has white pants for road games), but it just isn't the same. So much stuff has changed since 2012.

You could try the message boards on Operation Sports for a current roster. I'd be shocked if they didn't have them for 360. 


On a side note, hooked up my PS3 specifically to bust out the Denard-covered NCAA 14 during the season. Just HAD to put Peppers in on a few offensive formations. I also have mp3s of tons of band music queued up for specific moments- Temptation on 3rd down stops, etc. Ratchets up the enjoyment so many notches.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I would have been fine with NCAA 14 being the last one ever made. I only say that because a) Denard is on the cover and b) I never invested in a PS4 or Xbox One. I don't play enough video games anymore to justify that purchase.

are in the minority.  The rub is that it doesn't have the playoff.  Many people including myself really only play dynasty and it sucks to have a dynasty mode not comport with real life in a very fundamental way.  I have not bought the game specifically for that reason.  They could sell a billion (give or take) more of the 2014 game if they just had a playoff "patch" of some kind.  Seems like they could make that work and people would not bitch.  Until games are 4D it is not like they really can do that much more with the content and/or graphics on the game, it is just that the last game ever made was the year before the playoff.  Horrible.

Apparently there were talks after 14, but before the NCAA case, of putting a mincraft-esque stadium builder in the next game. It would allow you to build from scratch for create-a-teams or add on to existing stadiums. 

That got my engine all kinds of revved up until they cancelled the series. I loved making my stadium for my create-a-team in the older Madden games.

Won the Powerball. Looks like I don't need to play!

Hope they bring back the create-a-team mode. Loved playing with my Coleman Young University (CYU) Cobra Kai. They made 80s Miami teams look like Boy Scouts. Wiz Khalifa's Black and Yellow was our fight song and our motto: "Defeat does not exist in this dojo!"

Guess I got into the old NCAA games, and Karate Kid.

I got a Xbox One for Christmas, and Halo and NBA and Madden and Battlefront are all great, but I'd trade all those in for a NCAAF 16. I loved it on my 360 and played it non-stop. Bring it back!!!

I predicted the cessation of NCAA football games when the O'Bannon decision was pending, and took a lot of heat for it, but this is one of those situations where major changes can have unintended consequences. We'll see if the denials are accurate or if there is an actual pulse here (denials are nice, but that pulse vid is pretty unmistakable).

They were going to do that in 2014 but they had to go to each school and conference and gain approval for the licenses. 

B1G did the usual embarrassing B1G thing and denied their request. I believe the P12 did, too.

They don't even need to have any likeness and have no dynasty players. Just assign generic position specific #'s, randomly generate skin colors, make all QB's right handed to start w/, and assign ratings accordingly

No idea. If it's a space issue, take out the stupid shit that no one plays.

Mascot games? Road to glory?! 

Road to glory is such a waste of space. If you want yourself in the game for some odd reason, just edit the dynasty roster.....

Also, the gimmicks. No one gives two shits and a holler about Ultimate Team. No true fan would ever play Heisman mode and put Eddie George on Michigan or Desmond Howard on OSU.
