College Football Thread 2008

I couldn't get into the NFL 08 thread because, well, college football is better.

Just got my season tickets for Cal football !!!



Is anyone else excited about the new season? What's your team?

Just to stir things up:
Teams I love to hate: Notre Dame, Stanford, UCLA, Texas.
Really annoying guys: Charlie Weis, Mack Brown, Tommy Tuberville, Les Miles.
Perennially overrated: Notre Dame, Ohio State. (OK, maybe Cal too)



Go Bears!

College football is great. However the BCS kills it for me. But the football game itself is great.

Go Buckeyes. Yes, we got beat badly in the last two NC games, but at least we were IN the last two NC games.

Chris Wells=Heisman.

Good to see some other Cal fans! They're scarce out here in New England.

My father and I generally get season tickets but, sadly, I don't think he's up for it this year. He says he's put off by Tedford's unwavering dedication to Dongshore but I think he just doesn't want to admit he hates making the climb to Memorial Stadium. Old man.

Up with the Blue and Gold . . .

I'm just gonna point out that Florida worked you that first year. I'll see your Wells and raise you one Tebow for the repeat.

Thanks for pointing that out. How about that Michigan game last year?

I agree with you, Tebow is a stud. I do believe Chris Wells will have a longer football career, though.

As much as I want to hate USC, I always look forward to seeing them Song Girls.





But as soon as I hear that insipid USC band, the hate returns...

And oh yeah Bruin, get your own fight song!

Especially when Penn State comes on down there to play a Texas based team in a bowl game. Always Number 1 in my book.

The Hawks won't get passed the Huskers this year. The skers will be re-establishing their 40+ years of spanking the hawks.

A while back (early 90's), my brothers and I got on Huskers field and started playing football on it and we meet Tom Osborne. He was pretty cool.
