    Default College Football

    College football really heats up in Nov. The rivalry games are the most fun. I'm currently watching Mich vs Ohio St and the roar of the 100,000+ crowd is huge on every play.

    Just wondering:
    What's your favorite rivalry game?
    What school/team do you root for?
    What school/team do you dislike the most?

    I'm a Texas A&M Aggie and conference realignment has sadly ended a few big rivalries, like A&M vs TX and OU vs Neb. I dislike LSU a lot so today's game is a new-ish rivalry. There are many great rivalries on today so no work will get done at the MrBowl house today.

    For me, it was the WSU Cougs v UW Huskies or OU and Texas. Love both games. But brother did the Cougs get their butts kicked yesterday. The Cougs are really an up and coming team and it was sad to see the way things played out. I've watched the Huskies several times this year and I've not been impressed so I was expecting a very different game. I guess that's the thing about rivalries...they are chaotic..

    Michigan Man here. The only game that rises to the level of a rivalry game to me is the Michigan Vs. Ohio State game. Sadly, we were beaten by a better team yesterday but we have a bright future ahead of us with JH at the helm.

    As a Veteran I also root for Navy and the teams that I dislike the most are Ohio State, Michigan State and Notre Dame.

    I'm an SEC brother, Razorback by the grace of God. I grew up with the old SWC and enjoyed those rivalry games against Texass and ATM. Since we joined the SEC in '92 we've yet to win the conference and have only won the West Division 3 times. Life is much harder in the SEC as the Aggies can attest.

    We've been struggling mightily the last several years since Bobby Petrino went for a motorcycle ride with a young blonde not named Mrs. Petrino. We haven't beaten ATM in a few years as we seem to start each season slow (playing ATM early in the year) and then finish strong. We haven't had much trouble with LSU or Ole Miss lately, but the early losses have really hurt.

    The SEC is trying to start a rivalry between Arkansas and Missouri, but I don't see it catching fire because how can you get angry at a program like Missouri? They're like a little stepchild that nobody cares about.

    We get much more excited for our games against LSU, Ole Miss and even ATM. I would like to be more excited when we play Alabama, but we always lose that game even though we've kept it close lately...just can't get over that hump.

    SEC overall is down and the Big10 seems to be hottest right now. I was pulling for Michigan yesterday but I didn't watch the game very long because it was over early.

    What's your favorite rivalry game?
    -I'm not a fan at all of the BIG 10, but I love watching the trio of Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State go at it. I usually root for Michigan in those games no matter what, but those games are usually pretty good. Otherwise I'd say my Notre Dame team against USC or Michigan when we played against the Wolverines all those years.

    What school/team do you root for?
    -Notre Dame all the way. I'll pull for Clemson, Texas, TCU, and Oregon though in their respective conferences though, but the Fighting Irish are my #1.

    What school/team do you dislike the most?
    -I hate Ohio State, Penn State and Alabama.

    Was never a fan of College Football, mostly because the school I went to wasn't a big Football School. So, now that my son attends Virginia Tech, I'm committed to the VA Tech Hokies!

    What's your favorite rivalry game?
    VA Tech vs. Virginia (University of Virginia), we have won the last 12 consecutive meetings. Go Hokies!

    What school/team do you dislike the most?
    Ohio State and Alabama, just because!

    The one you watched!!!!

    OHIO STATE

    Michigan

    I rarely watch football, and I usually am out on the weekends to pay attention. But I love it when the Buckeyes beat Michigan (regardless of standings, record, bowl berths)!!!!

    I went to a college that has no football team....so I root for the school where all my school friends went!!!!

    The Texas/Notre Dame game was insane good. College football is so beautifully unpredictable, love it.

    -Michigan and Ohio, I've been a fan of that one since I was a lad

    -Ohio, Sparty, Oregon, Texas A&M, and Okie State

    I think the committee may have painted themselves into a corner if things don't go perfect.

    As it is right now if Washington has a lackluster game against Colorado or loses Michigan would more than likely move into the top 4.
    That would put 2 Non-Conference Champion Teams in the CFP, oh and from the same conference.
    Wait it gets better.
    Washington sleepwalks through Colorado. Now I will say this is highly unlikely because I truly believe Clemson to be a good Football team, what happens if VA Tech who can score points beats Clemson?

    Part of me wants to see it happen just to hear the stammering committee backtrack everything they have said.
    In Dog Beers I've only had two.
