You know how sometimes you’ll fill out a survey that asks, what’s your favorite season? My answer is never on there! They only give you four options: winter, spring, summer or fall. Hello?!? What about the best season ever, football season?
Any true southerner knows the four seasons are: winter, spring, summer and football season! Yes, I live in Texas, but I was born and raised on Gamecock football. Dad started taking me to home games at Williams-Brice Stadium as soon as Mom let him.
Of course, you can imagine how confused he was when I decided to go to Auburn University. If you read my 10 Things You Should Know About Me post, you know I pull for both teams. But when Auburn and South Carolina are both on the field, diamond, court, etc. my loyalty lies with the Auburn Tigers!
Only three weeks until the 2013 college football season kicks off, and its time to get my game face on.
South Carolina faces the UNC Tarheels on August 29, and ESPN will televise the game! On Saturday, August 31, Auburn plays Washington State on ESPNU. It will be the first look most Auburn fans will have at Gus Malzahn’s new team!
I was a big fan of Coach Malzahn’s hurry up offense under Chizik, so I have faith this season will be much better than 2012. The HBC or Ol’ Ball Coach, Steve Spurrier, has made significant improvements since he took the reigns in 2005. The USA Today Preseason coaches poll, has the Gamecocks ranked at #7, which is the highest in the school’s history! I tend to think they are ranked too high, but I hope they prove me wrong!
By the way, have you seen the new JELL-O molds available for Texas, Arkansas, Michigan and the Florida Gators? I’m wondering how they chose those four teams, and if there are plans to introduce a JELL-O mold for other teams down the road? Don’t blame me, I’m just the messenger!
Who are you watching this college football season?
