RedFrog's Ramblings (RedFrogND)

I've never had a blog, but plan on trying it out here on UL.  I will 'ramble' on about various things from my game experiences here on UL to my favorite sports team, the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux to my proud membership of the Raider Nation.  Drop in occasionally and check me out!

NCAA to be on NHL11? 5/27/2010 1:09:00 AM


"We've actually been in discussions with EA for a couple of weeks," Kelly began, "and while we don't have a formal announcement to make at this moment, we are certainly in discussions with EA Sports and they are very interested in having a college component to their game. We, the colleges, are very interested in having that happen and we are just currently in the process of figuring out what dimensions that aught to take. The answer to your question though is 'YES' just as there is going to be a CHL component to the video game, there will be a college hockey component as well."

And ... about being in the 2011 version ...

"I'm hopeful. I don't know much about the development of video games... if we come to a finality here in the next couple of weeks and whether that would give them enough time to roll it out in time for September... I would hope so but I don't know the answer to that. As soon as they are able to do it, we'll be doing it."

Will I be able to see my beloved Fighting Sioux from North Dakota on the game before they are forced to give up the moniker forever?  I sure as hell hope so!!

As is the case with NCAA Football games, I am sure they won't be able to use real names of the players, but at least we can edit them!!

WOO HOO!! Let's Do It EA!!

This would be great, I'd love to play as the Gophs online... As for the Fighting Sioux... I thought they had a clause incorporated with one of their big boosters that if they changed the name he'd cut and run and they'd have to get rid of any of the buildings he paid for...

Mooj ... Ralph passed away a few years ago. The way I understand it is that the Engelstad Arena is a separate entity from the college and is leased out to the university for $1 a year.

The local media is reporting that the arena is not expected to make any changes to the venue in the near future(over 3,000 logo's in the building including in the marble floor). This would cause a problem only in the fact that UND wouldn't be able to host any NCAA post-season games.

The NCAA would be cool - but the #1 thing on my wish list is the OHL, WHL & QMJHL leagues + players. I don't think that will ever happen though.
5/28/2010 3:34:00 PM
I'm retarded. I didn't even realize that they had already agreed to include the CHL...and I didn't read Fiddy's post either.

Anyways...that's awesome. Is that coming for NHL 11? Also, will it include the teams AND the players...or just the teams only? Final question...will all those leagues be in the same game? We won't have to buy a NCAA/CHL game + NHL game will we?

yeah, CHL is in NHL 11.. every team and all players.

check the drop down box of hockey leagues.. :)

That's great. I'm quite excited for the new game to be released.

Hopefully we can get some Memorial Cup Tourney's going...

From what I know about the development of the EA games, I doubt they would be able to put in NCAA teams at this point in time for September's release of NHL 11. Going forward it's possible they can put in NCAA teams and jerseys for NHL 12 if the NCAA allows it, but of course there won't be real player names just like there isn't in NCAA Football and Basketball. With the NHL game you can't download rosters either from other online users, unless they institute that.
