I love summer and the heat that comes with it, especially 90 degree summer days. And while I am sad to have the summer end and have to bust out the winter clothes, I am excited to have college football starting back up. You may have noticed that I changed the header on my blog to reflect my favorite college football team.
Some of the best parts of college football, and really all college sports, are the rivalries. I love going to games and seeing the fans wearing their respective teams colors while cheering on their team. You just don’t get that same feeling with pro sports.
Plus, the guys on the field are playing for the love of the game more than the paycheck, which is another thing that annoys me about pro football. Of course, there is the fact that I am a Detroit Lions fan and that probably adds to my disdain for pro football. LOL
My wife is not looking forward to it, because that means that the TV will be on some college football game all day Saturday. Starting with College Gameday on ESPN. And the best part is that this year I get to watch Michigan play in HD, along with the myriad of other games that I will watch.
This season at Michigan will bring with it a new challenge because we have a new coach. And while I am not happy about the circumstances surrounding him leaving his previous school, I would be a fool to not say that I am not excited about what Coach Rod will do with the boys in the winged helmet. Hopefully, he can repeat the success of Bo Schembechler in his first season at Michigan and beat the bucks. All we need to do is take a page from the SEC.
