Something funny happened on the way to the national championship game tonight… EA Sports’ NCAA Football Facebook page posted for the first time in 18 months.
Our heart still beats for the big game… #NationalChampionship

The former blockbuster sports franchise has been out of action ever since 2013, as EA Sports was forced to shut it down due to a legal battle involving compensation over the use of players’ likeness. EA and the NCAA have since settled that suit to the tune of $60 million, so was this post EA’s way of saying that the game could be coming back? According to EA, no.
However, this might be something to keep your eye on. It could be nothing, but it is weird that a dormant Facebook page would make a post like that, EA would make a comment on it, and then the post stays up instead of getting deleted.
I wouldn’t get too exciting, video game fans, but there certainly could be something going on here.
