College football is over. Yes, there are still a few all-star games to be played, but they don’t generate much attention from us. There is just something about college football each Saturday. It is an all day event. You wake up with anticipation of watching Gameday, the only tolerable pregame show in all of sports. Games start at noon and don’t end until your head hits the pillow and your eyes close up shop.

I enjoy Sundays, don’t get me wrong. But Sunday centers around the Giants for me. I do watch other games, but my interest isn’t high for other games until the playoffs. College football has the best regular season in all of sports. One or two losses could derail your championship aspirations. Some look at that as a reason of fault, but I find it to be intrigue. But winning a the national title isn’t the end all of college football. I love college football. I am not saying I am anti-playoffs, I would be willing to accept one as a fan if it made actual sense (and cents). I just love the uniqueness that is college football. I am content as a fan of how it operates. There are faults with the BCS, and they have tried to take measures to improve itself, while hanging onto the great tradition that is college football. For the last two years, the BCS itself has kept MSU from the Rose Bowl. We tied for the Big 10 Title a year ago, and even though we defeated the team that represented the conference in the Rose Bowl, our BCS ranking was not as high. This year, we were the only team with only 1 loss in Big 10 regular season play, but the addition of the Big 10 Title Game and losing it knocked us out of another BCS game. Such is life. A disappointment? Yes. But acceptable. The Outback Bowl was thrilling this year, and we finished strong and look forward to another year. There isn’t a moment that I think “what if” had their been a playoff and we were involved. The season went the way it should have, for all teams (sorry, ya can’t lose to Iowa St).

But now we wait and trudge through the next 8 months until MSU kicks off against Boise St. NFL playoffs give us a some entertainment on Saturdays for the remainder of the month, and some solid college basketball will fill the void through the first weekend in April. A baseball game here or there will be available to all in the summer, but nothing can do what college football does each and every Saturday. It’s a long road ahead until September. I cannot wait for it again.
