EA Sports has announced that Robert Griffin III, former Baylor University quarterback, will be featured on the cover of EA SPORTS NCAA Football 13, set to hit retail shelves on Tuesday, July 10. In addition to RG3, a fellow Heisman Trophy winner will appear on the cover of NCAA Football 13 based on a fan vote. So I don’t have any problem with RG3 making the cover, in fact I overwhelmingly support the choice. I do kind of have a problem with them splitting the cover with somebody else, if you are going to do a cover with former Heisman Trophy winners then just do that or offer an alternate cover but don’t make him share the honor. No recent cover athlete has had to do so, why does RG3?
Beginning March 12, fans can log on to the EA SPORTS NCAA Football Facebook page to vote for one of eight Heisman Trophy winners to accompany Griffin III on the cover of NCAA Football 13. The candidates include former University of Southern California running back Marcus Allen, former Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie, former The Ohio State University running back Eddie George, former The University of Michigan wide receiver Desmond Howard, former Oklahoma State University running back Barry Sanders, former University of Georgia running back Herschel Walker, former Florida State University quarterback Charlie Ward and former University of Houston quarterback Andre Ware.
So you all know how I feel about the choice but I understand that everyone might not agree? So if you didn’t want RG3, who would you have picked?
