Anything Can Happen – More so than the pros, anything can happen in college football, especially during rivalry week. Man is that a great week, more so if your team wins. They say so frequently, “You can just throw the records out with these two teams” and you know what? It is absolutely true. You never know what is going to happen and the upsets that seem to come up every week make the game so much fun to watch. Heading to Campus – The college football tailgate pre-party is just the best. The bands, the cheerleaders, the people, the food, the drink, give me it all. I’m in. I was at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum over the summer and ran into our new coach, Lane Kiffin. It’s great to be on campus. If you haven’t been to campus in a while, just go. You’ll have the time of your life, especially if your team wins. Brent Musburger – Granted he is no Keith Jackson, but let’s face it, there will never be another Keith Jackson, but Brent Musburger is pretty darn good. You just feel like you are in for a special treat when he starts off with, “You’re looking live at (insert location of great game here).” Talking Smack – As a die-hard USC fan, people have been coming at me left and right about the sanctions levied against my team. A friend asked me, “How does it feel that your team had to forfeit all those games?” I said, “You know it’s really not that bad. You see, I was there and not only do I remember those victories, but I remember celebrating them. If I made out with a Playmate a couple years ago and then all of a sudden someone told me I didn’t make out with her, it’s okay. I know I did.” Another friend who is a UCLA fan said to me, “How does it feel to not be going to a bowl game for the next two years?” To which I replied, “Well UCLA hasn’t been to a bowl game for the last two years and you seem to be doing okay, so I guess I’ll be fine.” And then there are the Notre Dame fans that seem to come at me all the time. To them I simply send them this diagram and smile. So get ready for a great season of college football and Upper Deck’s going to get you in the mood for it even more with the release of 2010 Sweet Spot Football on September 15. While players may move on to the pros, they will likely play for several teams, but they will only have one college team. That’s what makes the game so great and that’s why I’m so glad to have it back, but I'm sure I didn't cover everything. What do you love about College Football?
