Getting Ramped Up For College Football With EA Sports

For K-State fans, the dog days of summer are a predictable event.  We sit around anticipating the season, outsiders low-ball our season prospects, Bill Snyder is maligned for his scheduling philosophy, and it's usually really hot outside.

Given the general humdrum of the offseason, I was pretty pumped when Peter Bean informed us that EA Sports has asked to sponsor posts for the week preceding its release of NCAA Football 2011 on Tuesday, July 13th.  And this isn't some hamfisted campaign where EA Sports is dictating the content of our posts, but rather a weeklong celebration of college football, which for most of us ranks as our favorite sport.

Unfortunately, the joys of beating down hapless opponents with Ell Roberson and Darren Sproles have been forced to yield somewhat to the realities of a 9-to-5 and a wife who mysteriously wants me to spend time doing things other than building dynasties and raking in blue-chip junior college transfers.  That doesn't change the fact that the annual release of the game is like a second July 4th for many of us, so we're going to spend the next week celebrating college football fandom.  Once per day, you'll get an offering from the esteemed BOTC editorial staff, starting here shortly with our much-anticipated "How We Became Diehard Wildcats."  From there, we will proceed thusly:

Tuesday: All-Time Favorite K-State Team

Wednesday: Tailgating Traditions

Thursday: All-Time Favorite Wildcats

Friday: Most Memorable Moments

Monday: Expectations for the 2010 Season

Tuesday: The Second July 4th

EA Sports and I welcome, in fact, urge you to plunge headfirst into the comments section and share your tales of K-State fanaticism.  I can't wait to hear what has made us all walk around wearing purple for years.
