A brand new college football season kicks off this weekend. And with all due respect to Christmas, this is the most wonderful time of the year.
Here’s why I LOVE college football.
I love Joe–Pa, and whiteouts in Happy Valley.
I love Defend the Rock, the World’s largest Drum, and "Hey-ey-ey ey! SHOUT!"
I love the rise of the Cardinal and the fall of Troy.
I love Sparty, Goldy, Bucky, Ralphie and UGA.
I love Hook Em Horns and Roll Tide.
I love I-L-L. I-N-I.
I love the U versus the Gators, the battle for the Ax and the Oaken Bucket.
I hate Hail to the Victors…but man do I love to hate it.
I love night games, bowl games, big hits and big rivalries.
But mostly, I love Notre Dame Football!
I love painted helmets.I love striped endzones.
I love Play Like a Champion Today, Touchdown Jesus, We-Are-N-D, and the Alma Mater.
I love 7 Heisman trophies and 11 national championships.
And I can’t wait for #12.
I love college football.
And I love that it’s finally here!
