FINALLY!! College football season is here! It seems like it has been 3-5 years since the end of the bowl games. I dont watch a lot of football, but if BYU is playing and its on TV, I will be watching. For those of you who dont know, BYU is expected to be a BCS bowl buster this year, HOWEVER, as much as I really, REALLY love BYU, they always seem to find a way to lose 1-2 of the first few games of the year, and then go undefeated, I should know, I was on the team that went 14-1 in 1996, so yes I can say that.

I have a few other favorite teams too, I like Alabama (obviously), teams that I have friends coaching for, USC, UCLA, Louisville. I love underdog teams that surprise bullies, Boise State, South Florida, Stanford. I guess this is all very hypocritical because many of these teams play each other, (BYU vs UCLA, USC vs UCLA, etc). Just in my world, BYU is numero uno.

So, if you like Michael Andrew (which I hope you do) I am officially inviting you to jump on the BYU bandwagon as they attempt to go undefeated in with a relatively weak schedule. Just be warned, if they lose early on (which will crush me as it always does) I will be posting a big picture of BLACK in mourning, just so you know whats up.

Here is BYUs logo just in case you didnt know: Tomorrow BYU is playing Northern Iowa, a I-AA team, however, they are VERY VERY good (12-1 last year) and I am fearful this could be a messy game (think Michigan vs Appalachian State) if BYU isnt careful.

Other reasons to love college football:

– Major weekly upsets! (which results in the crushing of arrogance and egos!! YAY!)
– More diverse offensive schemes, including trick plays!!
– More heart and love for the game, not contracts or $$!!
– Smack talk!

Why else do we love college football more than the NFL?
