Before there was NCAA [Year] there was Bill Walsh Football
Can't get the naming rights for the school? Just use the city name. Player likeness? No, every player looks the same. The game is from an olden time, which automatically makes it more correct than anything that came after it. It was built with the spirit of college video games in mind: Taping devoted fans of more of their hard earned dollars, and funneling that money around the hard working athletes and into the hands of the athletic department, the NCAA, a video game company that long since stopped trying to make the game enjoyable and a coach who is already well compensated to do what he does.
It's time college football video games got back to it's roots, but who is the coach to lead the charge?

Halfway through the game, an impending alien attack can be stopped by defeating both Stanford and Oregon in the same season.
