College Football 2013
 
Seeing as the season starts up this week, might as well start up a thread! :D

For my own alma mater, Georgia Tech, I never have high expectations (hey, it's an engineering school!), so any wins are always a pleasant surprise. But would they *please* beat Georgia this year?!? The drought is killing me!

As for my wife's alma mater, Auburn, it's hard to do any worse than last year's abysmal season! As she says, we can only go up from here! :lol:

Glad somebody started a thread. I have nothing much to add to it right now (all the stories are either about Manzel or Alabama fans being bored of winning).

Manziel given sternest punishment imaginable!

Good thing he didn't get any tattoos. :rolleyes:

Well, it's pretty clear they had no evidence whatsoever they he got money. Really, the NCAA is a joke. I have some problems with treating student athletes as professionals, but that whole system is in desperate need of reform nonetheless.

That whole system needs to go away. Not sure what you replace it with that will be any less corrupt, but the NCAA is such a joke and it needs more than just reform.

Hokie fan here. Really looking forward to the blood bath at the hands of Alabama to start the season. The Hokies seem to have this tradition of saying "fuck a tune up game."

^ I really hope y'all put in a decent showing at least. With that game and UGA vs Clemson, there are two SEC/ACC games to start out the season, and the ACC really needs to win at least one of those.

The NCAA is never going away. How else do you expect the universities to make money? I do have issue with my tax dollars going into these universities with all this sports revenue and tuition getting higher and higher, but that's another story.

I got Manzel's autograph last week. Didn't pay for it and he seemed a nice guy. The common sentiment here is people are happy that ruling wasn't any worse. Half a game..... ooooooooh. If he was guilty of it, I'm sure he'll never do that again. ;)

Bah, A&M beat you champs and we'll beat you again. I'm obliged to talk non stop trash about how my team's going to thrash everyone until we actually step onto the field. ;)

The thing I don't like about following my college football team is that usually one loss eliminates you from winning it all. (Unless you are in the SEC.)

I watch the Hokies with the following mindset. I start at the top and when things become less likely, I shift the goal down a notch.

1. National Title (Pie in the sky thinking at best)

2. Conference Title (Nice! Hopefully we don't get an SEC team in the BCS game)

3. BCS at-large bid (Got one of these a couple years ago against Michigan. That was a catch Ref!)

4. The season is fucked. Just don't lose to Miami or Virginia please.

After this Saturday I will already be down to goal #2.

After those losing seasons Alabama had at the beginning of the decade, not sure we could ever get bored of winning! ROLL TIDE!!!

Hey, I didn't make up the story. It's probably stupid, although 30% of tickets are unfilled and there were random interviews with students who said they'd rather sleep than go to an 11:00 game. But Rama Jama Yellow Hammer, I really don't care one way or the other (wait, that doesn't really rhyme).

talk is cheap bu johnny football's autograph isn't enjoy It's hard for me to dislike A&M because of Bryant and Stallings connection to the school I've always Pulled for them but not against the tide

Well, my beloved Trojans look sketchy: Good defense, good running game, serious problems at the QB spot.

Both Wittek and Kessler looked off against Hawaii. If that game is any indication of our season, it will be a long one.
