    I`ve been watching College football recently and am looking for a team to follow. What is it about YOUR college team that would make me a fan ? I liked the Oregon, but I`m not feeling it anymore.

    Just start watching some, read up on them, then just pick!

    I favor Wisconsin ground and pound 554 yards of rushing today,(yes 554 yards rushing in one day) but that is just me.


    Plus they have the most awesome stadium cheer



    Even opposing teams like to jump around



    Or win lose or draw, the Badgers 5th quarter







    Not to mention we are Wisconsin, and love our BEER!!!

    If you're a Packers fan, you gotta be a Badgers fan in Wisconsin. Or you weren't raised properly.

    Badger games are best experienced at Camp Randall,the Jump Around is the coolest thing in College Football,even the opposing team joins in,plus the Fifth Quarter,that Stadium is literally rocking,I don't recall the year, 93? they went to the Rose Bowl and California people heard about the Wisconsin 5th quarter and were afraid the Wisconsin fans were going to wreck the stadium,lol

    Not much I can sell you on ECU(East Carolina University). We get ranked for the first time in over 5 years beating Va Tech and annihilating UNC Tarheels. Then lose to Temple almost two weeks ago in the ugliest games I have ever seen them play. They have contributed to Packers though. Gave us George Koonce and CJ Wilson :)

    Must not be a D1 school, as they seem to whore themselves out for all the $ they can get while screaming about student athletes and integrity of the game when the labor asks if they can get a piece of the pie.

    I get your point but Bill asked for someone to 'sell him "our" college', so the transaction I proposed was between (the cheap b****** - ie Monopoly $) Bill and me.

    Thee Ohio State Buckeyes...we have the best band, highest winning percentage, and more championships/appearances than anyone else in the conference. Enough said.

    Buggy Bill, I'm going to sell you on my Minnesota Gophers. Sure you can jump on the Badger bandwagon, or go with Alabama/Oregon/Florida State but you're buying high and selling low with those groups.

    My Gophers are sporting a near 60 year drought since their last national championship - they've won 7 times. They are a team trending up and you can climb on board for their ascent back into respectability. As an added bonus, we don't have a mascot that tries to act and look tough. He's always got a smile on his face and is out to have a good time. What more could you ask for? You don't want to be a bandwagon fan, do you Buggy Bill? Buck the trend, go Gophers.

    Becoming a Gophers fan would be like becoming a Packers fan in 1959 or 1991. Your joining at just the right time.

    Don't go for it, Bill! May as well become a Cubs fan - that's the gophers without the "lovable losers" charm. And you'd have to fend off the gophers' association with the Vikings. You're welcome!
