Today is the Day!

Today is the Day!

Today, at long last, is the day...COLLEGE FOOTBALL STARTS TONIGHT!! I'm pretty pumped up...everybody has reasons to be optimistic...everybody is currently undefeated...should be a great season for all...I found this at the bleacher report...which does a great job of summing up my feelings...Thanks to Gustavo Destro for his work:

Ah, the summertime. Sunshine, no school, baseball.
Who am I kidding? Give me some college football.
Don't even ask me how many days are left until it starts. I stopped counting for fear my head was going to explode. "Why the rush?" You ask. Well,  (It's today Gustavo!!) let me tell you.
I love college football. As a team, I love the Red Sox more(not me!) , but as a sport nothing can beat college football.
I love that you are sure Team A will win in a landslide. Why even bother to watch, right? Wrong. Next thing you know, Team B pulls off a two-overtime upset and you spend the next week saying, "Should've watched that."
I love waking up on Saturday morning (on the West coast), turning on the TV, and watching two teams play their hearts out. In August.
I love the sound of 100,000 fans screaming at the top of their lungs during 3rd-and-2. Even if it's through the TV.
I love hearing "The Buckeye Battle Cry," "Fight On," "Boomer Sooner," "War Eagle," and every other fight song after a team scores a touchdown.
I love seeing Beanie run, Harvin catch, Maualuga tackle, and Crabtree return.
I love fourth down gambles.
I love seeing the kicker nail the game-winning field goal. Twice.
I love that every game matters.
I love the Pac-10. And the Big Ten, the SEC, the Big 12, and all the other conferences.
I love that the BCS is so flawed. It keeps it interesting.
I love College Gameday.
I love having my friends over and cheering on our favourite team. Or whatever other team we decide to cheer for.
I love circus catches, broken tackles, and jukes. But I love interceptions, bone-jarring tackles, and sacks even more.
I love when a referee makes the wrong decision, just to be shown on the JumboTron making the wrong call and then he is mercilessly booed by the home crowd.
I love the Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, the Big Game, the Red River Showdown, and the Iron Bowl. But most especially the Army-Navy game.
I love the Commander in Chief's Trophy, the Victory Bell, the Egg Bowl, the Stanford Axe.
I really love the Spread Offense.
I love seeing 20-year-olds put under great pressure and succeed.
I love the Heisman Trophy and all the history that follows it.
I love seeing massive upsets.
I love when the crowd storms the field after said upsets.
I love BCS busters.
I love that "The games you remember, you play in November."
I love hearing the local broadcasters call a touchdown.
I love the bowl games.
I love New Year's Day.
I love the title game. No matter who plays in it.
I love that every new season brings new possibilities, new upsets, new favorites, new underdogs, and a different experience altogether.
I love college football.
