Yes, I love college football. Today is a great example of how much. As I write this, I am sitting in my uncle's Columbia, SC living room. And I am watching Nevada play San Jose State. Not much of a game. Teams aren't very good. Everyone else went to bed over an hour ago. My team lost today. I should be tired of this...but I'm not.
For one thing, road game weekends are my favorite right now, as I talked about here. That's true win or lose...another weekend with my nieces is awesome.
Also, you should have been there today. The energy as a stadium hosts the top-ranked, reigning national champions is fantastic.
The ebbs and flows of being at a game are addicting, and I could even appreciate the joy in the place when they actually pulled off the upset. (Didn't like it, but I could appreciate it.) We actually stood there for about 10 minutes and watched the celebration. Now THAT's joy -- when they can do what only they believed they could do. They didn't just come close - they beat us. Congratulations to South Carolina!
So I sit here. Watching football and blogging. Only one quarter of this game is left. Can't wait for next week!
