There are few things that get a college football dork more excited than the middle of July. If you're a gamer, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
It's time for NCAA Football 11.
So, needless to say, we were excited when EA Sports asked to sponsor a week's worth of posts leading up to the release of NCAA Football 11 next Tuesday, July 13. They weren't interested in telling us what to say, but rather in sponsoring a series of posts celebrating die-hard fans of college football.
If you're like us, the annual release of EA's NCAA Football is like Christmas in July, and we're more than happy to celebrate next week's holiday with a week-long look at what it means to be a fan of the Washington State Cougars. We'll be posting once a day between now and the release of the game next Tuesday, starting in a few minutes with the first of the series -- "WHERE I COME FROM: How we became die-hard Cougs." From there, the series will unfold as follows:
Tuesday: All-time favorite WSU football teams
Wednesday: Tailgating traditions
Thursday: All-time favorite Cougars
Friday: Most memorable moments as a Coug fan
Monday: Expectations for the 2010 Season
Tuesday: Christmas in July
We and EA Sports invite you to jump in the comment section of each post. We look forward to hearing all your own stories and traditions related to bleeding crimson.
