Rooting For A Non-Powerhouse College Football Team

Here is something a little off topicĀ  from Edgardo Rosa

When you think of college football fans, you usually think of some diehard fans of an SEC school, where all of the teams are so good they are almost considered ‘semi-pro’, or maybe one of the cold weather teams where the uniforms are sparsely colored and the play on the field is nasty and knuckle-busting.

Truth be told, every year when I sit down to watch my favorite college football team on the channels that my cable tv offers, I’m not rooting for a traditional football powerhouse. I’m one of those fans who is left with rooting for a team that has had a lot of success in another sport…college basketball.

My team is the North Carolina Tar Heels.

Sure, you might think I’d realize that the chances of the Heels winning a major football bowl game are slim to none, but like a true fan, I would immediately bring up the fact that at one point, the Heels were ranked in the top five and considered a national power. Of course, that was years ago, before Mack Brown let to turn Texas back into a national champion. It was also before a string of follow up coaches took our team back to the land of single-dgit wins. Ah, well, a fan can dream, right? Maybe this year, finally, my team will get back on track.
