Let’s go! Time to dive into dynasty mode and build a powerhouse at Louisiana Monroe. No shade at the Warhawks, by the way. I’m just excited by the prospect of all 134 FBS programs being involved in EA Sports’ upcoming College Football 25 video game reboot, which is long overdue.

In revealing the official logo for the game, EA Sports made it clear that users can build an epic legacy with any team they want. Whether they want to take over as Nick Saban’s successor at Alabama, — I realize Kalen DeBoer is the actual coach IRL — or construct the next perennial national champion from the ground up, gamers will only be limited by their imaginations.

I don’t personally own a gaming console at this time, but may have to spring for one once this game drops. College Football 25 is a powerful hit of nostalgia that way for myself and generations of sports video game fans. I personally enjoyed taking the controls at one of the service academies like Air Force, recruiting a bunch of speed and skill talent, and running the wishbone/triple option en route to myriad national championships.

Haters might say:

Austin Powers

To which I would reply, “Joke’s on you, it’s just patriotism.”

As was reported by The Athletic, real-life student-athletes will be able to get a piece of the pie amid the booming NIL area, with an initial offer of $600 and a copy of the game to be featured in College Football 25. Other college athletes will be eligible for additional NIL compensation as ambassadors for the game, per the report.

The official plans for this game were announced all the way back in February 2021.

At long last, the wait will be over sometime this summer. Not that I want to burn too many sunny days stuck inside, yelling at my TV and chucking my controller across my apartment, but hey, that’s the beauty of gaming, ain’t it?

In all seriousness, it seemed like this day would never come. Amid the chaotic arms race in recruiting brought about by NIL, the waffling commitments and confusion it creates for players via the transfer portal, and how much of an uphill battle it is for coaches at the minute in those regards, College Football 25 is one of the many player-empowering benefits to come out of this whole movement.

Bonus question for the end here: Who do you want to see on the cover of College Football 25? I feel like the artwork below is hard to beat. If I had to choose one player, it’d be a conventional pick: Reigning Heisman Trophy winner Jayden Daniels.
