South Alabama Being Left Out Of EA’s NCAA Football ’13

June 6, 2012 · By · Filed Under Football, News 

South Alabama alum and avid support like myself Jon Garcia posted the following on Facebook this evening.

“So, it was found out today that South is not included in the coming release of the NCAA 13 football video game that is extremely popular (http://www.landgrantholyland.com/2012/6/6/3067170/ohio-state-overall-e3-ncaa-football-13-team-ratings), but UTSA, Texas St, and UMASS are. All 4 of us are new to FBS this year, yet South is the only one that was left out. There is apparently some confusion as to why. With someone supposedly in the know stating that South “did not get its paperwork in on time” whatever that means. South announced FBS plans before any of those schools mentioned above.

I don’t know if they have enough time to add South Alabama and do a good job. But hopefully they will pay very close attention to us for next year’s release or maybe add us with an online update later.

Go Jags!

UPDATE 2012-06-08: Apparently the supposed person “in the know” is not really in the know. So I struck out the information included from said person.

    If USA didn’t file the paperwork allowing their properties to be used in-game, they don’t get included. That sucks, but it’s probably not EA’s fault this time around.

    Hi Brian,

    Can we eliminate the part about paperwork not being submitted on time? It appears that the guy who said that to Jon doesn’t really have any insider information.

    Struck out that portion of the text in the article after some verification.

    Blazer: I don’t think each school has to allow EA to use their property (i.e., logo, colors, etc…). The NCAA already has rights to all of those properties, and the exclusive deal between the NCAA and EA transfers those rights to EA. EA already has the logo from their basketball game, anyway.
