Tim Lester calls EA Sports 'NCAA Football' series "the best video game ever."

During Wednesday's football press conference, Western Michigan head coach, Tim Lester, sounded off on the state of current state of college athletics.

Following an NCAA Board of Directors unanimous vote to allow players to profit from their name and likeness “in a manner consistent with the collegiate model," Lester joined in on the speculation for the return of EA Sports' NCAA Football series.

On NCAA allowing players to profit off their name, image and likeness:

“Is the NCAA video game going to come back? Because that was the greatest video game of all time. I still have it at home, my kids still play it. But I think it’s great. It’s going to be interesting because I think there are so many things that come along with that. I’ve talked to a lot of people and I think it’s a work in progress. It’s great if people are gonna make money off of our players, I think they should get a piece of that for sure. There’s gonna be other parts to this puzzle, I think it’s for the players which I’m 100% for but we have a lot to figure out.”
