Sadly not as excited about this year, but that's because I'm an Auburn fan, and they graduated most of the only talent they had. They're picked for what, 4th in the SEC? Even that might be a stretch, but oh well, I'll still watch every game.

I didn't go to Auburn, I lived there for awhile, and my parents live there (my dad has been teaching there for awhile now). Never watched college football growing up, and my college was a small one without a football program (crazy schools in the north actually exist without a football program!). So never much got in to it until I used to spend time visiting my parents.

Grew up in a big family, couldn't afford the 'big' schools, went to a I-AA school myself. Not too mention my grades weren't worth spending the $$.

Midwestern teams; ND, Michigan, Illinois. It's been a rough few years...

I grew up in Seattle. So I have always rooted for the Washington Huskies! And it has nothing to do with my nic.

I think we won 4 games while I was there (4 years). Only one more than the number of women's basketball national championships.

They've done better since then.

I'm a BUCKEYE! Could be an interesting year. Usually get to at least one game a year. Don't know about this year, but am going to try. My dad grew up in Ohio and here I am. Now the son knows to do I-O after O-H.

My wife and I are PSU grads. If God ain't a Penn State fan then why is the sky blue and white?

Looks like JoePa needs to stay up in the booth this season though.
