    I went to colleges that aren't known for their football teams (Philly is very much a high school/college basketball town when it comes to non-pro sports), but I love watching football. I like Penn State, although I am not a Joe Paterno worshiper. He is pretty great, though. I don't think Florida will need much fan support to emerge victorious today. I am more pumped for USC vs. Ohio State. In my adopted hometown of Los Angeles, USC is the closest thing we have to pro football.

    I went to Syracuse, which means that I don't get too excited about college football.

    We lost 28-7 to Penn State today, which may qualify as a moral victory.

    I went to a smaller school that used to be one of the better 1-AA teams around, but unwisely made the move to 1-A... and now they're beyond bad. But I'm actually more a fan of Texas, where my parents went to school when I was little and first started watching football.

    Not a fanatic, but I enjoy college football more than pro football (aside from some reservations about the whole education/big-money sports thing).

    Right now I'm semi-watching Michigan and Notre Dame. I wish they could both lose.. badly. . But I'll side with Michigan as the lesser of two evils.

    I am rooting for Michigan, surprisingly enough. I just can't stand Notre Dame. I cannot support a team that A) has unfair rules regarding BCS bowls; B) claims totally illegitimate national championships; and C) has the majority of fans who have never been to Indiana, let alone attended school there.

    That's pretty much my reason for disliking their football program as well. I mean, objectively there's a lot of good things about the University...

    FUMBLE!!!! Michigan ball

    ... I think they generally take academics a little more seriously than most big-time athletics programs, I have friends (and a cousin) who have gone there, etc. But the blatant favoritism the football program receives on a regular basis is a big turn-off. I admit it - I like to see them fail. And as they're perennially awarded bowl game berths on their reputation and fan base rather than their record on the field annoys me (the point could be made that other schools get this treatment too... but none even remotely so much as ND does - what do you tell the poor kids on a better team who don't get to go to the "big game"?). And don't get me started on the Willingham / Weis thing. Of course, until last year it pretty much always resulted in them getting pounded by better teams in bowl games - a nice way to start the new year .

    But even now... one of the broadcasters was saying that they're a strong candidate for this year's championship game. I mean... really? Not as bad as Beano Cook (of the "Notre Dame should win a national championship at least once every 5 years" quote). I'd love to see them play Florida/Texas/USC/etc. in a bowl game .

    p.s. Michigan touchdown!

    It's a great school. Certainly in the elite Catholic universities with Georgetown, BC, Holy Cross, Villanova, and Fordham. They just have the corniest fanbase in college sports (and this is coming from an East Coast Irish/Italian who went to thirteen years of Catholic schooling). The fact that middle-aged men get misty-eyed over a school they've never been to (many didn't even attend college, period) is just laughable. I am a moderate Penn State fan because I AM FROM PENNSYLVANIA. Also, Penn and Temple just suck. Penn was a college football powerhouse 100 years ago; that doesn't mean I bring up John Heisman left and right. Notre Dame have had some NCAA violations, too. It's not a dirty program like some, but it's not like God's own football team. Are they at nine consecutive bowl losses? Something is amiss there.

    Yes - he was pretty impressive here, especially at the end - really pulled a rabbit out of the hat. Definitely an exciting end to a fun game.
