It’s football season.
Not Arena Football. I worry those guys playing indoor like that might knock over a lamp, and boy will dad be pissed.
Not NFL football. If I want to watch a bunch of over-hyped egos acting like fools, I’ll watch pro wrestling or MSNBC.
Not Canadian football. But it is kinda cute how they think that’s football, eh?
No, I’m talking real football. College football.
You got your Division 1-A (the PC weenies call it FBS, but they’re weenies) where all the big schools play. But you also got your Division 1-AA (what PC weenies call FCS) where the slightly smaller, but still pretty big schools play. They actually have a playoff system, but they’ve expanded it too big and will screw it up like basketball did.
Then, there’s the other division: II and III. That’s where some really good talent plays, plus the players that get kicked off the Georgia squad for getting in fights, drinking, smoking weed, carrying guns, and generally thinking they’ve enrolled at Florida State University at Athens. But besides the screw-ups from Division 1-A, they’ve got some talent at those levels.
There’s also NAIA or something. This is where some good players that couldn’t get scholarships to other schools, or couldn’t afford to get too far from home, play. Still, there’s some real talent there.
Bottom line is: college football is back.
Now, I’m not going to be going on and on about how great the SEC teams are and how the other conferences just don’t measure up. I’ll let the last six national championships say that.
No, I’m offering the fans the chance to sound off about their team in the comments. Be nice. Well, mostly nice.
Oh, heck, it’s football. Just don’t draw any blood. Or not much, anyway.
