You know I'm an NCAA EA Sports nerd . . .
I got this e-mail today. I dig the EA Sports NCAA football video game. Not sure if you're into the online voting thing, but I thought I'd let you know (I played the Iowa game on Friday nights for awhile this year, but couldn't figure out how to make a Mark Weisman, so sort of gave up):
December 14, 2012 – EA SPORTS is inviting college football enthusiasts to showcase their passion in a brand new NCAA Football cover vote. Between now and December 31st, fans of all 126 FBS schools will have the opportunity to demonstrate why their team deserves the coveted cover. Polls are now open on the official EA SPORTS NCAA Football Facebook page, as the field of 126 is narrowed to 32.
Fanhood extends beyond voting, and true fans are encouraged to come up with creative ways to represent their team. Impassioned tweets using the hashtag #NCAACoverVote, Instagram photos of campus landmarks, YouTube videos of university traditions and more will all count toward a school’s chances to advance to the next round. In short, fans are encouraged to go all in and represent the team they root for every Saturday.
All next week EA SPORTS will be featuring specific conferences, teams, traditions and more on Facebook and Twitter in an effort to engage fans and kick-start voting.
Team-specific assets can be found at http://ncaafootballcovervote.newslinevine.com/.
