It is something about the month of September that calms me. It is not the cool weather. It is not the brisk wind. It is the sound of a whistle to let AMERICA know that it is time for COLLEGE FOOTBALL. One of the greatest gifts my father gave to me was my love for FOOTBALL. I always favored College Football because of the competition but as long as I hear that whistle I AM GAME!

Now to break down where my love goes during Football season is always tough to explain. Folks criticize my loyalties but they are MINE! I know why I favorite a school or pro team and why I do not. Let me explain:


What can I say!? I LOVE YOU! Seeing a Michigan vs. Ohio State game for the first time at a young age can change a girl's life. Some of the greatest college players and coaches have been a part of this university. The rivalry between Michigan & Ohio State intrigued me and always showed me that there is just a certain passion in College football that's not in the Professional league. 


ROLL DAMN TIDE! <----- Every time I think of BAMA I hear a Southern fan screaming this at the top of their lungs! It is contagious. I am not a fan of the SEC conference but it is very dominant in College Football. You have to give respect where it is due. So in that sense I had to pick a team I could root for and it has been Alabama. Alabama has played Ohio State twice before in the 1978 Citrus Bowl & the 1995 Citrus Bowl. So there is some history there.


SOUTHERN MISS TO THE TOP--- SMTTT! This home! This is where I learn more about the game. This is where I was raised. Who else could I trust with my love of College Football?? I even dated a player from Southern Miss but that's another story. LOL! But I love the Golden Eagles even though the Conference USA doesn't get that much love in return.

So as you can see my FIRST LOVE was a bit complicated, but it all started with a whistle. College Football is a part of my life and it is the primary reason why I am returning to school to get my Master's Degree in Sports Management. So watch out now... This will lead to something!
