I don't find myself any less interested in college football than before.

If anything, I might be more appreciative, knowing what these players are overcoming to play the game, and knowing we potentially won't have it all season long.


Yeah, and I get that.  I just struggle if it's just a random bunch of games.  Maybe as we get into October, and we get some continuity, it will feel different.

Handy TV guide since we've almost made it to the real start of the real season.

I hope it lasts.

The only game I made it out to last year was between two 0-9 teams.  Just stayed for a half.

I keep wanting to go see some big-boy teams play in AZ, but not this year.

If this is where fans watching sports ends, my last college football game was Vandy-Nevada; and my last sporting event was a Robert Morris-St. Francis, NEC conference tourney quarterfinal.

I can't close like that!

My last game was Tech @ UGA, I took my daughter who lives in Ohio with me.  It was bitterly cold that day.

WVU-Texas in Morgantown.  Gorgeous fall day. My daughter’s first college football game. WVU lost but if that was my last one I’ll take it.

I am optimistic I will not be taken by the grim reaper before I see another college football game, so I will not attend a game this year. This was my most recent game:

My daughter visited us from Columbus that weekend and it was colder in Athens, GA that day than C-bus.  It was windy and occasionally drizzling rain at about 38°F, just about the worst conditions possible really short of being below 10°F and very windy.

I recall once in Cincy going outside for more wood, it was -18°F and the wind was howling, I think that is the coldest I've experienced short term.

Eh, I'd still take 10 below and dry.  The worst weather game I ever attended was this

When the T drops, I find the wind is pivotal.  I've been out in 10°F weather when it was not bad, as have we all, and if the wind picks up it gets bad quickly.

Layers help of course.

I used to use the snow blower on our common drive (four houses on flag lots).  At times the wind would change directions and I get a face full of blown snow.  No thanks.

The neighbors have sold the snow blower and just drive on ice now apparently.

Cotton Bowl 1991 are the worst conditions of any football game I've ever attended.  It was one of those like Cincy was mentioning, about 36 degrees, drizzling/misting the entire time, and windy.  Just miserable.  And then there was the game itself, which was... even worse.
