Classic Austin Powers quote!
Hello all, I'm NSBlueFan (Murray IRL) I've been a football fan for a long time but only an NFL fan, could never get interested in College football until now. With the 10 bazillion teams in College football and the lack of a playoff system it never really caught my interest. But football is my favorite spectator sport by a mile so it was only a matter of time.
I'm a Patriots fan, so I decided to make Michigan my team in honor of the greatest QB of all time, Tom Brady. The final push was the awesome speech he gave to the Wolverines before the season started. So I caught a bit of the first game of the season, but my first full game was the Notre Dame game which, let me say, was an awesome introduction to the college game. (Although I feel like we might want to find a new Def Coordinator in Michigan)
Obviously being new I don't know a lot about college football yet vs the NFL (Touchbacks on the 25? No 2 minute warning? Clock stops on a first down? Weird!) but hopefully I'll pick it all up before long. I'll count on all of you in my new fan nation to teach me. :D
A question I have is, what's a successful season in College Football? I know the ultimate goal is to win the National Championship, but with so many teams and the way the system is set up now it seems like that's just not possible for a lot of teams no matter what they do in their season. I know a bit about bowl games and the conferences (I guess we're in the Big 10?) but how does a team make a bowl game? Which bowl games are the most desired to be in, I would assume it'd be the big name ones like the Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Rose Bowl, etc. So if someone could walk me through that it'd be appreciated.
Thanks for your kind attention and I look forward to rooting on the Wolverines with all of you!
