    I'm curious to hear everybody's opinions on this year's College Football Season. Tell me your team's and how there doing (I don't just mean big name schools. I mean all D1, D2 etc.). Of course yall can tell my team is Clemson. If you would like to hear why i'm a Clemson Fan feel free to ask. I don't want to make this into a huge debate over who's better than who cause we all know were bias towards our teams. I really don't have an official Top 25. I somewhat agree with the Playoff Rankings with some changes of my own here and there.

    I enjoy the NFL much more than college football (I'm a Broncos fan) just because I don't have a team I 'love" but if ASU or Air Force is playing I'll root for them. I rarely watch college football, I'm sorry Slipdigit, but I love watching Alabama lose

    I am not the biggest football fan in the world but I went to undergraduate school at Alabama, tutored football players and taught an earth science lab for the players. Then Georgia to graduate school and taught at LSU and Auburn where I designed a house for Pat Dye and an outdoor kitchen for Gene Chizik. So mostly have lots of SEC connections but average going to one game every 11 years !. I follow esoteric stuff, use to F 1 but lost interest, the America;'s Cup, root for NZ, the Olympics and associated sports and lastly the Tour de France. Oddly NCAA football helped me pay for college and designing things for coaches got me more work. I was and am very fond of Pat Dye.

    My opinion? It is going by too quickly. There are only two regular season games left and basketball season has unfortunately started.

    Roll Tide!

    We are University of Miami fans and they look really good this year. The reason we root for them is that my son did his graduate work there and graduated with his degree in tax law after 4 years at LaSalle University in Philadelphia. While at Miami he was able to see Warren Sapp.

    My wife and I are both Penn State grads, so our first loyalty is there. Our son went to Clemson and we were fortunate enough to attend several football games there. We are Clemson fans as well.

    I absolutely do. It even went to the NY District court. The US argued it did not meet the 10M rules. The Court ruled it indeed did as the measurements were taken at rest. When the hull healed the leeward wing went deeper and that was simply innovation within the rules . The US has a terrible record of cheating since they first won the Cup. I am sorry the Oracle's huge money is now involved . The Aussies out thought and out sailed them. Was exciting this year as well .
    I still like the monohulls but admit the new catamarans are exciting to watch, 40 knots must be fun !!!

    I found the hull of "Lion Heart" in a Newport shipyard a few summers back, sad shape.

    As a Notre Dame and Penn St. fan both hopes were dashed the last couple weeks. Bummer!

    However, my Eagles are playing lights out so I have an ear to ear grin most days, lol.
