PHOTO: Robert Griffin III Announced As EA's NCAA Football 2013 Cover Athlete

Baylor's Robert Griffin III will land on the cover of EA's NCAA Football 2013, a move that should surprise absolutely no one, since the enigmatic Heisman winner showed this weekend he's a living, breathing video game character in his own right.

Unlike the much-ballyhooed Madden Cover Curse (see: Vick, M.; Tomlinson, L.), there's little doom surrounding EA's cover selections at the collegiate level. Past winners include everyone from Michigan State mascot Sparty to Oregon's Joey Harrington to embattled Heisman winner Reggie Bush to tackily-tattooed Jared Zabransky to uh, Chris Weinke to.... OH GOD, ROBERT, NO... TURN BACK NOW BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.
