The 18 Stages of College Football Season

I'm slightly unprepared for class today, so with the help of myself, circa this time last year, I've still got a Fan Friday Post for you today! Plus, I really miss posts from the archives, it's nice to take a little walk down memory lane every once in a while. Oh, and happy college football weekend everyone! And by that, I clearly mean, GO BIG ORANGE!




1. You see a 68 pound ball of fury screaming expletives at the 369 pound right tackle's mother

2. When a friend asks you if there is a game on Saturday?



3. Saturday Morning waking up with College Game Day on tv, and mimosas in the kitchen.


4. While waiting for the new rankings to come out after a big win.



5. A Number One falls to an unranked team


6. Your QB is doing the post game interview


7. You find the perfect tailgating dress, in the perfect combination of your team's colors


8. A co-worker starts talking about her school's 35 point win last weekend


9. Your team gets shut out


10. The Kicker loses the game.


11. The Kicker Wins the Game



12. You make a new friend that loves the same team you love


13. Your team ends the season with only 5 wins... not 6.


14. Plans after a win


15. Plans after a loss


16. Trying to eat tailgate food after you've already had too much to drink


17. How you feel in August


18. How you feel in January

  3. #2 oh yes. #7, you southern girls make me laugh. My bestie went to Clemson, I was like... how do you do keg stands in a white and orange dress?! She was appalled. We're all jeans and flip flops up in Iowa! For Iowa fans, the gif for #15 is actually the same as #14. Win or lose, we still booze. Because we lose. A lot.

  4. So completely and totally true (and no, I don't want to talk about Vandy's loss last night, unless you agree that it was due to the lightening and the new head coach)

  11. #12 is my favorite! I feel that way when I meet someone who loves college football (and screams at the TV) as much as I do, even if it isn't the same team!

  16. This is hilarious!

    I wish I cared about college sports. The only time I care is when my alma mater makes it into the NCAA basketball tournament. Maybe I'll pick a team and care this year.

  17. Hysterical! I'm so freaking excited for football season!!! And because it's August, I'll be tailgating in a pool tomorrow. For real. It's times like these I wish I'd bought an Ohio State bikini. #GoBucks

  24. HAHA Those GIFs are perfect. As a USC fan, I am already feeling defeated even before tomorrow's game. Please, please, please let this be a decent season. I'm alright with not being the best in the Pac 12, but for godsake, UCLA cannot have a better record than us!

  28. Now most college sports teams are producing good revenue to support and build more team spirit. sec schools team fans are moving tons of merchandise and licensed products to support their favorite teams.
