Next on the Docket
Because my love for college football is, to a certain extent, an extension of my passion for high school football, much of the list of things I love about high school football can be applied to the college game as well. However, there are a few things that are unique to the college game. With the opening of the college season coming this weekend, it's time to list these as well:
Getting up "early" on Saturday for College Gameday on ESPN. Watching football on TV all day (when BG doesn't have a home game, of course). Upsets. Smurf turf (the blue Astroturf at Boise State). Brandi's temporary tattoos of the Falcon logo on her face. My Cole Magner #21 jersey. The excitement on campus before a big game. Tailgating. Cold afternoon games in November. The occasional pre-game jet flyover. Freddie and Frieda Falcon. The spread offense. The cannon being fired after a score. Storming the field after a big win. Watching West Coast games at the bar on Saturday night. Bowl games.
