The last few weeks, the NCAA Football video game franchise has been gaining a lot of steam. Many fans want to see it return now that the Ed O’Bannon case has been resolved and it looks like one big name football analyst is backing it as well.
ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit spoke about the franchise, which hasn’t released a game since 2013. He talked about how the O’Bannon case “ruined it for us all” because the athletes just want to play the game and see themselves in it.
“I’ve never met one player in college football that’s like: ‘They can’t use my name and likeness! I need to be paid!’ They’re just thrilled to be on the game. They love being on the game. It’s like the biggest highlight of their life, is to be on the game,” Herbstreit told SEC Country.
Herbstreit was asked about his comments on Twitter and he gave a pretty interesting answer. He said that he would be “happy to” do some commentating on the game for free.
Happy to. I just miss the game. I couldn't care less about being involved in it. Just like to play it again. https://t.co/aoUb81drGQ

I think all football fans everywhere are more than excited to possibly see this game back. I think we would all be okay with Herbstreit being the voice of the game once again.
