I'm a college football fan. I enjoy seeing which teams overachieve and which teams underachieve. Enjoy the trick plays, punt returns and kickoff returns. Like how hard the players try.
The four teams I follow for college football and basketball are:
Purdue Boilermakers (I grew up in W Laf, IN, and my Dad taught/worked there)
Indiana Hoosiers (grad school at IU NW campus, Gary, IN)
Univ of Louisiana at Laf - Ragin Cajuns (undergrad, BSME, and have lived down here for years)
LSU Tigers (good football team most years and exciting to watch)
I've long accepted the fact that Purdue and Indiana are better in basketball than football.
Purdue is good in football when they have a great QB (Len Dawson, Bob Griese, Mike Phipps, Drew Brees),
(should I also mention Jim Everett & Gary Danielson?)
