RB Ingram Named NCAA ‘12 Cover Boy
You can bet Auburn fans won’t be happy about this: Alabama’s Mark Ingram, the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner, has been named the cover boy for the NCAA Football 2012 video game made annually by EA Sports.
This is despite the fact that Auburn’s Cam Newton won last year’s Heisman and national title and was clearly the most exciting player in the country. Apparently deemed too controversial to grace the cover of the long-running video game series, Cam Newton was left off the fan ballot to select the 2012 cover that included Ingram, Auburn DT Nick Fairley, Oklahoma RB DeMarco Murray and Washington QB Jake Locker.
Something tells us Newton would have gotten more votes than Locker.
