College Football Thread

I won’t be able to do this every week because if my work schedule but, to quote Billy Corgan, “When I can…I will. Try to understand… That when I can…I will.”

Tonight college football starts with a rivalry game between Miami and Florida. Should be a good game. As much as I hate it I will be actively rooting for Da U to put an epically devastating, seaon ruining beat down on the Gators.

And now onto the unfettered excitement portion of this thread…

Go college!!!

I don’t follow college lol. I need to though.

As a RedSox and Colts fan you seem to be able to withstand years of underachieving. Maybe you even secretly like it. You’d make a great Gamecock fan. Welcome aboard.

I love this video because 1) Mayonaise is a great song and 2) it forces me to use my imagination to figure out how Billy Corgan ended up playing the song with three people I’ve never seen in what looks like a tiny conference room somewhere. My best guess is that Corgan accumulated a few dozen traffic tickets in some city somewhere and as punishment the judge made him play a set with his son’s Smashing Pumpkin cover band.

What, in your opinion, are the biggest college football rivalries?

These are the ones I can think of:

Harvard-Yale (Ivy League; the Original)
Cal-Stanford (Pac-12)
Michigan-Ohio State (Big 10, or 12, or whatever TF they call themselves these days)
Gators-Canes (not sure)
Alabama-Auburn (SEC)
Texas-Oklahoma State (Big the other number)
Notre Dame - USC (Cross-conference, sort of)
Clemson - ???

The Pac-12 consists of six different rivalry pairings; I’m not sure if the last one on this list has been around long enough to have fostered much hatred yet.

Cal-Stanford
USC-UCLA
Arizona-Arizona State
Oregon-Oregon State
Washington-Washington State
Colorado-Utah

Lmao glad to be apart of this!

Clemson - South Carolina is actually the second longest consecutively played rivalry game in the NCAA. They have played every year since 1896. Its a HUGE deal here. Clemson fans even put on their best pair of overalls, take their yearly bath and stop making out with their first cousins during that game week its so important.

Is there like an Oakland underdogs team. I’ll cheer for them lol.

Lol I made it until 20 min til kick off and then I fell asleep on the couch. Just woke up 45 min ago.

I guess Florida won. Looks like it was a good game. Sorry I missed it.

I’ve abused my “Regular” privileges by converting this to a general thread about College Football.

Cal 20
Washington 19

Roll on, You Bears.
