    Many of us on here likely have these kinds of feelings for our teams as well. Figured college hockey fanatics could relate.

    In all honesty I'd rather spend a weekend hanging out with college hockey fans of a team I don't root for than with professional sports fans of a team I do. One of the reasons I love Lake Placid so much is the old people from Clarkson and SLU and Dartmouth and god help me even Harvard who I sit down with, have a beer, and share memories of 80s games, and listen to some of them talk about games in the 50s.

    This is the only community I've ever been part of that I could stand (and vice versa). It's my congregation.

    The part I don't get is when a pro football fan wearing a jersey and baseball hat of his team, driving a car with 2 bumper stickers and a license plate holder, who just shelled out $6000 for season tickets asks me, "why would you fly back up to NY to see a hockey game?"

    How does he NOT get that it's the same thing?

    Happens all the time.

    The supposed #1 JUCO QB who joined Minnesota in January is transferring after one semester.

    He was beaten by two freshman. Ended up #3 on the depth chart. Also hearing that he can't keep a 1.0 GPA.

    From what I read, Minnesota is down to one scholarship QB on the roster, a redshirt freshman.

    Correct. 1 play away from a high school backup taking the reigns. (At IMG Academy, nonetheless, but still.)

    They prefer attacking by sea rather than through the air anyway.

    I mean, I get they were very similar sports at that point, but it'd be like including your 100m sprint with your 100m hurdle records.

    This seems like a poor business decision, doesnít it? Donít league members share bowl revenue?

    Now, bowls do require participating schools to sell a certain allotted number of tickets, so unless thatís how teams are losing money, not sure why this makes sense..

    Isnít additional exposure for member schools important? (albeit a 5-7 team isnít playing in a marquee matchup, but the networks still televise every game)

    What about the 15 extra practices bowl eligible teams recieve and the extra development and opportunity for young guys to get more involved?

    I thought teams < .500 were not permitted by the NC$$ to get bowl bids.

    If they aren't enough .500 teams to fill the slots then they rank by academic performance, or whatever the APR actually measures.
