    EA Sports says cryptic video wasn't an 'NCAA Football' tease

    If this post wasn't about the game's eventual return, it sure got a lot of people thinking it might be.

    The NCAA cancelled its relationship with EA Sports in 2013, due in part to a settled lawsuit that ended up with former players getting a cut of the money the association made off the NCAA Football video games.

    However, this video post by the game's official Facebook page makes it seem like there is some hope for a return of the game:






    Posted by EA SPORTS NCAA Football on Monday, January 11, 2016
    This was the page's first post since July 2014.

    However, an EA Sports rep said, "No news, sorry to get your hopes up," via Polygon's Owen Good. The rep says the post is about Monday night's National Championship.

    Why the heartbeat? Here's what EA Sports told SB Nation: "We have no new plans or announcements to make regarding the EA SPORTS NCAA Football series. Today's National Championship game reminds us more than ever that the hearts in our community still beat for college football."

    EA Sports wanted to continue the game, and it was willing to pay for the likenesses of players — thus, giving the players a cut — to do so. That would make the game even more authentic, as it could then include player names like NFL video games do, instead of just players' numbers. However, the NCAA did not allow it, as the association claims it would violate the ever-changing definition of amateurism.

    The Facebook post wasn't made in error, an EA Sports source told SB Nation's James Brady, and EA still expects litigation to continue through 2017.

    Reasonably I'd say NCAA 19 would be the earliest we could see the game again , more likely NCAA 20.

    Joke's on them. Since they ripped my soul out, I discovered the joy of FIFA and wouldn't even buy their shit football game if it cost a dollar.

    Enjoy your $28 settlement, fuckheads.

    The Plaintiffs' final brief to the US Supreme Court is due on July 15.

    The court has discretion on which cases it will hear.

    The parties are trying to convince the court to take the appeal.

    Both sides are asking the court to take the appeal.

    It drove me mad how you could be a team like Alabama going against "FCS West" and still give up 20 completions to their QB.

    Just the total lack of defense in general was infuriating

    One night in college I was all sorts of fucked up on Carlo Rosi and I tripped and fell through a window, hand first, had a giant gash on my arm. Sam Keller just so happened to be walking down this alley, helped me out and got my friends.

    Still an awful human.

    It's not and from what I understand it never will be

    I learned last fall that penalty sliders actually affect gameplay. And not how you think. I mean like changing the face mask setting impacts how aggressive the CPU defense is and stuff like that. Supposedly PI setting affects how aggressively dbs play theball but I never found a setting where they weren't still worthless
