EA Sports College Football is back - apparently just in time to deprive Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow of a life-long dream.
Burrow joked Tuesday with a tweet that all he ever wanted was to be on the game's cover - and the game waited until after he won the Heisman Trophy, led LSU to a national championship and graduated to make its triumphant return.
Last week Burrow tweeted that he agreed with UFC heavyweight champion and Cleveland-area native Stipe Miocic that Ohioans are "like the toughest people in the world."
Burrow said earlier this month that he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from knee surgery and "very confident" he'll be ready to go for the Bengals at the start of next season.
