This is going to sound a little odd, but I'm kind of new to college football. See, I grew up in New England. There were no real college football teams to root for. It was never popular with my peers, so I never really had much of an interest in following any particular team. I did eventually grow fond of the Washington Redskins. I love football, I'm a passionate Skins fan, but I always felt as if I was missing something because I wasn't invested in the college game. Recruiting, student sections, All-Americans... it all seemed pretty awesome, but I had no one to root for. I figured it was time to pick a team to root for. I've lived in Colorado now since 2001 (Colorado Springs for a year, Durango for college + a few years and back to the Springs about 4 years ago.) I've been attending post grad classes at UCCS for over a year, everything I've read about HCMM and his staff seems awesome, the team has nowhere to go but up, I was a big Kordell Stewart fan in the pros and I love the idea of a program like CU crawling their way back to the top of the pile. I decided to cast my lot with the Buffs. Honest to God, I can't explain why... but with all the reading I've done, message boards I've followed, apparel I bought... I feel really invested in this team. I look forward to the rebuilding effort!
