I’ve never been a huge fan of college football or college basketball.
For starters, if you didn’t go to a particular college, then who do you root for?
Logic would have you pick a local college, which would have most of us rooting for the LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds…but no one would actually root for them by choice, instead you’d go for a “UNC” or “Duke” or “Florida”….in other words become a bandwagon team for a perennial potential champion.
And no one likes someone who hops on a bandwagon.
The other problem I have with college sports is that if you didn’t go to that particular college, and have no ties to the team, how can you follow a team that potentially throws out their roster every season and starts fresh, as their best players are going on to the majors?
In basketball, not such a big deal to follow 11 fresh players…but as many as 53 new players on your football team…how can you pledge allegiance to a team like that unless you went there?
So this is why I couldn’t’ve cared less this year about the College Football Championships, and sure I’ll watch the highlights and see potential draft picks…and the same with March Madness, it’s 4 weeks of: Who cares? Who cares? Who cares?
Unless you went there of course.
