I never realized just how important college football was until moving to a state that has no professional team. I moved to AL 5 years ago and it's been an amazing college football ride. It was fun seeing how passionate people here are over college ball vs. how passionate people back home up north are about pro ball.
In most states with no pro team, College rules all...even in some states with college teams...the College team has a bigger following.

Look at Florida...there are probably more fans of Gators/Seminals than there are of Dolphins, Buccaneers and Jaguars combined.

Here in Ohio, it's all about OSU...even with two pro teams. OSU basketball is almost as big as Cavaliers basketball...and OSU isn't considered a premier basketball place to play by outsiders. (They're better than most people know though not an elite team year in and year out.)

In Pennsylvania, you've got Steelers/Eagles fans...and a HUGE following of Joe Pa and his Nittany Lions. Even with Pitt in there to cause some disruption...I'd venture to say that there are more Penn State fans than there are Steelers fans in PA.

I think you're probably right about the Nittany Lions fans out numbering the Steelers/Eagles fans that's for sure. My family in PA are huge Nittany Lion fans - my cousin had a full scholarship to play football for them but chose military college instead. I would have loved to have seen him play years ago.

I've been to OSU, it's an amazing school and there's no doubt they are proud of their college sports team.

The following for Maryland University and the Terps is huge as well but I have never seen a following like those for Auburn and Alabama - it gets down right crazy!!! :)

It's just fun to see the passion and be a part of it that's for sure! :)

I'm here in Alabama as well---the Auburn/ Alabama thing is unbelievable
I hear about people who simply refuse to even drive thru Auburn just because it's Auburn. They actually drive [Bmany ]miles [/B]out of the way just to go around it.
Crazy.

Aye...states that have no Pro Teams tend to have it worse than those with Pro teams.

In WV, I have buddies who won't go near Morgantown because they're Marshall fans...

It's like the whole OSU/Michigan thing during the Bo/Woody days...where OSU would stop and fill up in Toledo because Woody wasn't paying the state of Michigan one penny of OSU's money.

I don't take it that far...but I consider myself a fan of the sport first and foremost...not just a team.

Now THAT is re-donk-u-less!!!! I've never been to Auburn I haven't had any reason to head that way... but I wouldn't avoid it just because I love Alabama. Then again I wasn't BORN into this way of life, I'm merely dating a guy who's family's blood runs crimson. ;)

LBJ wasn't THAT bad. typical democrat president though..which should say enough about how bad he was.

Or should we be keeping politics out of these threads.

Why didn't he "cream" Bama back on December 5th? The Gaytors got their asses kicked and would again.
