Not all college football teams are treated equally. Some clearly get a pass when it comes to ranking, scheduling, who makes it to bowl games, and even the national championship. There's a clear demarcation between the "old money" and the "nouveau riche."
I wish I could follow it all more casually, that I could watch a game, talk trash with my friends and cheer when my team scores. And when it's over, it's over. That's the dream: reaping the good without suffering the bad. But being a fan doesn't work that way.
If only we could create our own fantasy teams in politics then perhaps the current Congressional leadership debacle would seem less like a game-ending fumble. The idea that we need to engage in our political leadership in the same way we do with our sports is an idea whose time has come.

If you plan to go to a NFL or major college game this year, stop by the bank for a significant withdrawal -- and perhaps a loan application if you like premium seating.
The Crimson Tide faithful were left empty-handed and disappointed at the conclusion of Saturday night's events, many, even frustrated. A rough night in Tuscaloosa and a rough Saturday for the Tide Faithful as Alabama Football fell to Ole Miss 43-37.
There is football, college football and then there is University of Alabama football. A visit to Tuscaloosa for the night game against Ole Miss was an eye opener, dispelled many stereotypes and provided me with a renewed appreciation for SEC football.
We would normally go on about the factors we weighed when ranking these things, and how we considered the college town, athletics, etc. But we want to be real with you.
College football season has begun, and this year it is being brought to you by Koch Industries, and not just in Kansas. The Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) has obtained an exclusive list of the Koch-branded college football games.
Temple football and its long suffering fans deserve this one shining moment. This game wasn't a fluke. It wasn't about how bad Penn State was. It was about how good Temple is starting to become.
No matter the main dish, there's one thing that everyone can agree on -- no one wants to be a victim after the ball kicks off. Because when it comes to BBQ and grilling, you have to watch out for foodborne illnesses.
What's not to love about college football right now? From explosive offenses and new rivalries to hard fought games and the emergence of the College Football Playoff, incredible story lines glue millions of Americans to their televisions every Saturday.
