Need an NCAA team to follow...
 
Ok, short and sweet. I have always followed pro football, never really got into college sports. I went to a tech school so there's no allegiance or anything. I refuse to root for Penn St because everyone around here does. I want to start watching CFB this year but need a team. I don't want to root for any of the really heavy hitters (Texas, Michigan, Florida, etc) since that would be some front running b.s. Basically, I'm looking for a team that runs the spread or some other creative offense. Right now I'm thinking of Texas Tech or Boise St... I want to start researching early enough to pick a team for this year. Any suggestions?

You probably root for Afghanistan in the Olympics too, just to spite all those America homers you must run into. Seriously, I was so pumped up to open this thread and lay out my reasons for supporting Penn State...and then I read your third sentence. Now I'm wondering if you rooted for England during Braveheart :)

I'll plug my alma mater, the Richmond Spiders. Coming off their first NCAA division 1 AA national championship!

Yeah they're 1 AA, or baby D1, but they're good. And no other college has the Spider for its mascot.

I loved my racing swim suit, navy blue with a white embroidered Spider right on the right ass cheek. Well, I loved it as much as a guy can love a speedo, I guess.

LSU is really a fun team to watch/follow. The SEC is where it's at. Easily the best conference and competition, imo. I'm also a Michigan fan even though they're terrible now and I love Tulane because I went there, but they may get their program cut in the near future. So, I would recommend LSU, if you can ever make it to a game down there, I would highly suggest it. Their fans are crazy and really committed to their team.

LSU and OU are way too huge. I always liked Arizona State, plus Pat Tillman went there... When I've watched games over the last couple of years, it's always been fun to watch the smaller schools use the spread to close the gap.

If that's the case, when Dennis Dixon was the Q, Oregon was awesome to watch. I didn't have Fox Sports Pacific during last football season, but they're still an up and comer trying to use the spread to catch up to/bring down U$C.

How else did you think I got to be a Redskins fan in the middle of Eagles/Steelers country? :)

Do people really pick teams this way? Just seems like your choice needs to be a little more natural.

I know, it is a little weird, but I've never followed it and I have no allegiance whatsoever, which leaves something missing during watching the games. Like i said, if I had to pick right now, i'd say ASU, but I'm not entirely sure as to why. I liked the school and the fact that Tillman went there is very cool.

I was thinking the same thing. Just watch College Football and you'll end up liking teams. I just got into it a couple of years ago and I love watching it now, regardless of who's playing.
