I’ve always felt a bit lost in terms of college football. Having grown up in the Phoenix metro area, my dad’s company had a suite at ASU football games which we used frequently. This was great when I was younger, until the Sun Devils became just awful a few years ago.
Now, as a St. John’s student, I attend a school that got rid of its football team 10 years. The Big East is notoriously awful at football so I’ve struggled to follow along when I’m not really that involved. When you don’t have a team, it’s hard to care, no matter how much you like the sport.
Today, as I watched some great bowl games I was reminded that I’m still searching for a college football team to call my own. I refuse to jump on a school’s bandwagon because I’m a big believer in justified fanhood. So someday I hope to have an NCAA football team to call my own, but until then I will continue to watch impartially. Sigh.
P.S. My fan-dome is absolutely for sale. Want me to support your school? Feel free to bribe me (in a way that definitely violates NCAA rules).
