EA Sports NCAA Football ‘14

I miss the game so much, I’m bout to cop an old PS3 and pick up a copy of ‘14.

That’s what got me through the off seasons......

    All the NCAA had to do was put in a random player generator and add the “any resemblance to any persons living or dead is purely coincidental” disclaimer just like in movies.

    Hardly if ever played Madden. ALWAYS played NCAA every year.

    That’s a can of worms that we don’t want to open. On so many levels.

    I agree. It's a very easy fix, but they will never do it

    1992 is when it got real.

    I don’t think they will and I don’t think they should either. My take is this, most (not all, hot rod for example until before the Notre Dame game) athletes are on scholarship, if they start paying these athletes, do their scholarships go away and they have to pay their own tuition? How would we decide how much to pay them? Does a starter get paid more than a backup player? Does a kid at a bigger school get paid more than a player at a smaller school? How about the athletes that don’t play the sport that brings the school the most money? Do the tennis players, golfers, equestrian teams, and other athletes get paid as well?

    I totally agree that since these athletes are not allowed to have jobs that they should get a bigger stipend, more financial aid. They are no different than regular kids and they want to buy video games, take their girlfriends out on dates, buy clothes that the athletic department doesn’t provide, etc....

    But I think paying college athletes would turn college sports into what I hate most about professional sports, I don’t want to say money hungry babies, but sitting out and pouting because you think you’re not getting paid enough? That’s pretty weak in my opinion.

    Worst case...put a small amount in a trust for these kids that they can’t touch. Small gesture and wouldn’t take that much

    They already are paying them with that stipend. In 2015-16 UGA's was $3746. Don't know if it has changed since then.

    I remember when the "pay" was first instituted. Tons of people were speculating that because GA wasn't paying as much (the cost of attendance was calculate to be less than say Auburn's) they would have trouble holding on to recruits. I guess the thought was that recruits would automatically go where they got the largest stipend. Didn't really turn out that way.

    That’s how I was. The game is deep.

    You ever try to run Techs offense? It was a game with many layers to it.

    Great games back in the day.

    I played that game when I was six or seven years old and proceeded to play every version of EA Sports college football until it died. In Bill Walsh, you've got to be Colorado if you're not the Dawgs. Kordell Stewart running the triple option... unstoppable.

    Let's have some fun with this. ....

    Which difficulty level do you feel Coach Smart and his staff are currently recruiting on? You can take this a couple of different ways.

    It seemed like a real opinion, it's mine as well.
    Stop ripping the kids off.

    The players were compensated just as highly by UGA as those schools, if not it would have been a problem.

    I think each school was allowed to calculate it's own "cost of attendance" and there were differences between the schools. I don't believe compensation was equal across schools. Are you speaking of some other form of compensation?
