For those of us who cherish, love, and miss the NCAA football video game series, E$PN posted a frontpage web article about a group dedicated to keep the game alive.
A 17-year veteran of law enforcement who once walked onto the football team at USF, Bullard works with a group of nine gamers to keep the defunct franchise alive. Each offseason, they go through a painstaking process to input data to build out the updated rosters of all the FBS programs.
Every player is created from scratch, down to his name, likeness and hometown. Then there's the empirical method they've devised for assigning player attributes like speed, agility and strength -- those "little stupid numbers," as Bullard's fiancée put it.
"She'll get up at 3-4 in the morning and go, 'Ah! You're still up working on this game? You're not even playing!'" Bullard said. "But I'm editing. Let. Me. Live. I'm living my best life right now.
EDIT: What's puzzling is that E$PN had a strong partnership with this series and the fact it published an article on its importance. It's as if Big Mouse is calling out EA to bring this video game series back. Your move EA! Do It!
