    I like Notre Dame and USC the most, but I have other favorites that change from season to season. If none of them are on, I like the West Coast teams.

    Ahhh, College Football! I hope we have a winter this year too, or at least that this beastly summer will end.

    I am a lifelong USC Trojan fan (and alum). I can't wait for the season to start, and hope we will play well this year. At least the sanctions are finally over, the loss of scholarships really crippled us for years. We can actually hopefully start tackling in practice and having depth at postions again.

    I root for Ohio State in college football--I gotta, I'm an alum! (49ers fan for NFL.) VERY excited to see how this year plays out. Last year's championship win had all us fans stunned, I think. So really, whatever happens this year is okay by me. I'm just looking forward to the entertainment.

    I am an alum of WV, but this year my cousin's grandson is also on the team.

    Many of my colleagues attended local universities, so we have a subtle color coordination that goes on at work during football season - blue and gold for us WV fans, scarlet and gray for OSU, and green for Marshall/Ohio University.

    That's really cool--having family on the team would bring an extra level of excitement for game time.

    The Ohio State fans in Columbus can get really rabid, it's kind of embarrassing at times how nuts some of them are.

    Well, Fans, another mistake! The big day isn't tomorrow. I got my days mixed up; that happens when one retires. But I'm not completely wrong. There are some games on tomorrow night.

    Sooo, only one more day until football day! My bad.
