With the 2012 NFL Draft now less than a week away, it’s easy to forget how crazy and wild the last season in college football truly was. A team that didn’t win its DIVISION won the national championship. A quarterback who plays for the BAYLOR BLEEPING BEARS won the Heisman trophy. Oh, and no team from the state of Florida was worth a damn.
Crazy and wild indeed.
So while the focus on last year’s superstars will shift to New York, former “amateur” athletes prepare to take their talents to whomever drafts them and shake the commissioner’s hand. Of course, if you’re a fiend for college football and can’t wait to get your fix, then NCAA Football ’13 might be just what you need. Check out the official gameplay trailer from EA Sports, and then enjoy your Starting Lineups reading material for this Friday morning.
