Denard Robinson will appear on the cover of EA Sports NCAA '14

Following one of the dirtiest elections of our time, in which each side was accused of voting irregularities, Michigan's Denard Robinson has edged Texas A&M's Ryan Swope to appear on the cover of EA Sports' NCAA '14.

Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson will grace the cover of NCAA Football 14 after prevailing in a tense final vote against former Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope.

"I want to say thank you to all the fans at Michigan for getting behind me," said Robinson, the NCAA's all-time leader in rushing yards by a quarterback. "Michigan has one of the best fan bases."

With the victory, Robinson becomes the third Michigan Wolverine to appear on the cover of an NCAA Football title after former Heisman Trophy Winners Desmond Howard (NCAA Football 99) and Charles Woodson (NCAA Football 2006).

"It's an honor to go to Michigan, and for us to be on the cover of NCAA Football."

So, what will we all be playing this fall ilnstead of NCAA '14?

Well, no lie... I am still going to buy it pretty darn close to the release date

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

There's my edition.

Nice job GFL.

Finally finished my 1st go at it. (If people can dig this - then I will also do an Xbox 360 version. And I can also make these in print resolution for those who may want to print em out.)

I couldn't resist this. Good thing I gave up playing video games 7 years ago. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I bet he can tie his shoes at least.

Yeah... To all 11W's, just skip what I wrote and enjoy the photos :)

Whoever copied the excerpt from EA got the scUM cover boys wrong. Charles Woodson was '99 and Desmond Howard was '06.

Fact-check EA's copy?

I don't get it. Why did you just repost the graphic from above?

That is worth a thousand upvotes right there. And we all know you would be rollin' in the dough with that many. No, really, I would upvote that if I could.

I desperately want to not look, but am defenseless to the power.

+1.

Welp, I know how I'll be saving $60 this year...

DanCorona5, you should consider posting your updated cover on the other thread of the same name in the forum. Many do not seem to look here as much. That is funny stuff.

It's all good.  Ohio State won the Belmont League.  Therefore Denard Robinson is a figment of Ann Arbor's imagination.

Looks like I will NOT be buying NCAA 2014.

That's a shame, as Swope made a couple videos showing off his "skillz" that were fun to watch.

He throws better than denard

That was way too entertaining to not win.

Why does anybody play NCAA, when it's, at best, always a year behind the Madden franchise? #MaddenOrDie

Why does anyone play either? Football video games peaked at ESPN NFL 2K5, then the monopoly was put in place.
 
don't be a sucker, don't give EA your hard earned money for their yearly clones (oh look! a few more tackle animations and the grass looks slightly more real!)

I think this is the last year of EA's exclusive rights. My fear would be that 2k or anyone else won't make a college game until the Keller lawsuit over player likeness is resolved.

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

I'm afraid 2K, or any startup, won't have the funds/resources to make a game.  That also assumes that EA won't negotiate another exclusive rights (monopoly, in reality) deal.

I don't care for NFL football.  The Buckeyes are my only team.

I can't believe the country voted TTUN's back-up quarterback for the cover.
