SEC commissioner Greg Sankey is in hot water with college football fans this week.
The leader made some comments over the weekend that could just start a war between him and a number of football fanbases. The topic of those conversations?
The EA Sports NCAA college football video game.
The widely popular game franchise was discontinued after issues with amateurism in college sports were questioned. Now, though, the NIL era has seen players benefit off of their name, image, and likeness.
With that change in the college football landscape, the video game franchise announced its plan return last year. A return that could be scheduled for the 2023 season.
While this news was music to the ears of many college football generations, Sankey doesn’t seem to care about the release in the least.
