Today’s On The Field Friday brings us to one of my favorite jerseys of all time. While it is my favorite jersey, I know this late 70s/early 80s Houston Astros jersey is very polarizing. While the oversize star is prominant, the most recognizable aspect of this jersey are the vivid orange and yellow stripes.
EA Sports enticed more people to follow their Twitter and Facebook pages by holding back the NCAA Football 12 demo date until they hit some milestone numbers. Finally, at 7:37pm EST, they twitted out the time. On Tuesday. June 28th you will be able to get your hands on the demo for PS3 and Xbox 360.
The full retail release is set for July 18, so this demo will give you two weeks to play with four, still yet to be released, teams. You will also be able to unlock five Nike Pro Combat uniforms for Alabama, Florida, Miami, Oregon State, and West Virginia.
I’m really looking forward to this demo, as NCAA Football is consistently taking more and more time from my Madden time. I can’t wait to start a Dynasty with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Why you might ask? I’ll be able to start from scratch like Ed “Straight Arrow” Gennero did with the Texas State University Fightin’ Armadillos in Necessary Roughness.
Today EA Sports released the box art for this year’s iteration of Madden NFL 12. Peyton Hillis’ cover looks quite good. He is the main image, with a smaller image of himself next to his right arm, and the city of Cincinnati next to his left.
Also being released is a Hall of Fame Edition featuring, Rams great and 2011 NFL Hall of Fame Inductee, Marshall Faulk on the cover. He was also on the cover of Madden NFL 2003.
