Excerpt: NCAA Football 09 is a safe game. While it finally delivers on the features fans have been asking for in recent years, it also doesn’t drastically change the tried and true formula which put the NCAA Football franchise where it sits today.

The professional game, love it or hate it, has become more about the money than anything else.
