Where I Come From: EA Sports NCAA Football 2011 Available Now

This post is sponsored by EA Sports NCAA Football 2011.

Today we wrap up our series "Where I Come From", sponsored by EA Sports, with a few words from EA Sports.

When you go to a particular school or grow up around college football, you are more than just a fan. It’s who you are. We thought we could leverage this pride in your roots and show that "where you come from" is more than just a statement about geography. By positioning NCAA Football 11 as a game that understands this pride and is authentic to these traditions, the takeaway should be that anything that is in college football is in NCAA Football 11.

And this doesn’t just include game play (though that’s a huge part of it). It’s rivals and mascots; it’s legends and stories. It’s those things that are at the very fabric of the game itself. Of course the game is great this year as well. With authentic entrances, mascots and specific offenses for each team, the term "where I come from" takes on a much larger meaning. While playing NCAA Football 11 is ultimately a great sports sim, it should also give you a sense of the pride and emotion one has for being a fan of a team they will never not be a part of.

In addition we have a little business to take care of here at Rock Chalk Talk in terms of a free copy of the game to one of our many contributors out there this week. 

First let me say that this has been a lot of fun.  Reading about different Jayhawks, different backgrounds, traditions, expectations, favorite plays and players has raised my level of excitement for the season through the roof.  Thanks to anyone and everyone that contributed, commented and shared. 

As for the contest, we had 22 entrants, 22 that sent in their name, game platform and some but not all managed to successfully participate in every post. I assigned a number to all who qualified dropped a number in a bucket and after a little coaxing my one year old daughter drew the #10 from the bucket. Scouted.  So congrats to you Scouted, looks like you're going Xbox 360 with this one.  It's on it's way as soon as you email me your address. 

Thanks again to all and going forward we will be doing more contest like this.  T-Shirts, jerseys etc will be the prizes so those of you who weren't interested in a video game will have an opportunity to claim a little free swag.
