EA Sports is bringing back NCAA Football! Oh, wait. No they're not.

What does the name change actually mean in the context of continuing legal disputes?

How does school licensing work, and why might the NCAA still be skittish about getting involved?

What can the timing of the NCAA's continued foot dragging on the question of name, image, and likeness rights tell us about why this announcement was made?

And...how can we get Denard Robinson on the cover of the new game?

There's at least one venue in which my Wolverines can win...in Virtual Legality.
