Anyone reading this knows, I’m a big fan of the Texas Longhorns when it comes to college football. However, Thursday night made me realize something: I am not an “exclusive” fan.
You see, over the last few years, I’ve watched more and more and more college football. I’m at the point where I watch every single televised game. I’m no longer just a Texas fan, I’m a fan of college football. And as a fan of college football as a whole, I’m a fan of more than one team.
Over the course of the last few years, I’ve adopted a few different teams for various reasons. I either find a player or a coach that I like, and I pull for them from week to week. Usually I gravitate towards particulary exciting teams, players, coaches. Sometimes I just end up pulling for the underdog. Either way, this means that on nights like Thursday night (When Texas lost to TCU), I’m not heartbroken, because I know that another one of my teams can pull through later in the weekend. Here are just a few of the teams that I’ve pulled for the last few years.
Michigan, because I like Denard Robinson
Boise State, because I like Chris Petersen
Oregon, despite the fact that Chip Kelly is a dick
Florida, because of Coach BOOM
Washington State, because of the pirate
And plenty more
So today, instead of worrying about what’s happening at Texas, who’s going to replace Mack Brown when he inevitably retires at the end of the season, what will happen in 2013, etc, I’m going to pull for Ohio State and Urban Meyer, Florida and Coach BOOM, Oklahoma State and Mike Gundy, Texas A&M and Johnny HeisManziel, and Notre Dame and Brian Kelly.
As a fan of college football, I can’t lose!
