WATCH: Ohio State great Eddie George among CFB legends replacing Larry Culpepper in Dr. Pepper's new ads
College football is almost back, but Larry Culpepper will not be coming to a television screen near you any time soon.
Dr. Pepper axed the polarizing pitchman during the offseason. In his place, the beverage company has called on college football legends such as former Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George, former Oklahoma star LB Brian Bosworth and ex-LSU/Oklahoma State head coach Les Miles to help launch the “Fansville” ad campaign.

In the State vs. Tech-themed ad, it’s fitting that George supports State, whose colors appear to include red.
The “Fansville” trailer was released Monday. It looks like B1G fans will be seeing plenty of a Buckeye great (George) and a Michigan Man (Miles).
