Gamecocks vs. Tigers
So this whole all-into-college-football thing is new for this Northern girl.
I def love me some NFL football…don’t get me wrong. (NY Giants, to be specific!)
Football makes me think of hot cider and sugary cider doughnuts…cheerleading back in the day with my home besties…the Fall of 2004 when I fell in l♥ve with Scott (and asked him and my brother in-law about a gazillion questions about the game so I could cheer and swear at the right times)…wearing a jersey and pajama pants…nachos and chili cheese dip and beer (oh my!)…high-fiving and celebrating with the hubs…being laazzzyyyy!
Giants Training Camp at SUNY Albany in 2009
BUT – the thing is – NFL football is on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays. We all know that mama doesn’t like baseball because of the ridiculous daily time commitment.
Enter: Sarah and Scott move to the South and the ginormous existence of college football!
I mean, college football obviously exists in the North – but it is one BIG DEAL down in these parts! Some college football games happen to occur on Saturdays. Therefore, my new football watching total will be (if I’m so convinced) 4/7 days a week or 57% of days that end in, well, day.
So the question remains – who’s going to be my team?
University of South Carolina Gamecocks
Clemson University Tigers
Here are my thoughts thus far…
Mascot – Cocky the bird vs. Tiger the tiger…+1 for Clemson
Colors – Maroon and Black vs. Orange and Purple…+1 for Clemson (I think!)
Team Name – Gamecocks vs. Tigers…+1 for Clemson (uh, I severely struggle with “Gooooooo Cocks!”)
Paraphernalia – Well, we already have koozies and a freezable beer glass…+1 for USC
Game Location – Columbia, SC (2 hrs., 30 minutes) vs. Clemson, SC (4 hrs., 40 minutes)…+1 for USC
Husband’s Choice – USC…+1 for USC!
That would be 3 points for Clemson and 3 points for USC. Shoot.
This is where YOU come in…I NEED YOUR HELP!
Which team should I commit to for a lifetime of college football? (This is heavy stuff). Include your reasoning in the comment section and I’ll love you forever!

p.s. Ladies wear dresses (that’s right – DRESSES) to college football games down here. Weird right, NYers?!
p.s.s. Anyone a Georgia Bulldogs fan? Maybe I’ll choose to be different ;)
