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.
