John Simon a Candidate for NCAA Football 14 Cover

John Simon will crush this vote. Like he crushes everything in life.

EA announced Wednesday that John Simon is a candidate to appear on the cover of NCAA Football 14, but he'll have to top candidates from seven other schools.

At this point, only four candidates have been announced – Simon, Michigan's Denard Robinson, Alabama running back Eddie Lacey and Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones – with voting conducted at the school level for the teams that don't have representatives. Individual player voting begins next week and Simon will need every bit of love he can get as he currently trails Robinson, Lacey and several generic candidates at schools without a player representative.

So do your thing, Buckeye fans. While the game has slipped a bit in recent years, landing a cover boy is huge for the program and a Denard Robinson victory is absolutely unacceptable.

Don't they reset the voting between rounds?

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

I think they do. IMO it's already decided. They will put Eddie Lacy on the cover.  
I'm assuming the next 4 canidates will be E.J. Manuel, Kenjon Barner, Luke Joeckel, and Te'o's fake girlfriend.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

I really don't want Denard or Lacy. If not Simon, I'd love to see Barner, just because Oregon's uniforms are sick.

No. They are going to a top four vote. The voting resets between rounds.

Looking at visual clues from the image they provided (legend in bottom right, bars that have room to stack), my guess is that the voting does not reset.

Is a punter seriously a candidate for the cover of a video game? Wow, he punts with his arm. Big deal.

Lmao, that's a good 1. If I could vote, your comment would receive an up vote from me.

They just named EJ Manuel as FSU's candidate.

I only care if it's going to be a picture of John Simon decapitating another human while snapping into a Slim Jim.

I think everyone should vote for Te'o, then we can all pretend to buy it.

Unless EA Sports changes the shape of the box, there's no way John Simon's muscles could be contained enough to have him on the cover.

Denard is unworthy, IMHO.
