Of course, EA will not tell us what the final, actual, vote count was...likely because they probably don't even know. Either way, people voted...and so did bots...and when it was all over, EA named Denard the winner.
"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."Congrats to Denard. NCAA Football 14 will release on July 9th. Maybe, if we're lucky, EA will read this and we can coordinate some sort of giveaway contest or something.
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."
The ball is in your court, EA.
