This little book packs a lot in its pages, starting with the story of one football fan’s path to true blue college football fandom, followed by a list of things necessary to preserve the storied traditions of today’s college football scene, combined with a slice of the game day traditions of all of the Power Five Conference teams and their crazy fans. It’s guaranteed to make you want to go out and immerse yourself in the game of college football. It covers everything from tailgating to superstitions, from history to game day traditions, from the thrill of victory to the agony of defeat. It’s quite simply a must for any true blue college football fan, and a necessity for those new fans who want to know how to act like they’ve been there before.
This book is very different from any other book I’ve written. It’s a nonfiction look at the wonderful traditions of college football and the impact it has on the lives of its many fans. I wrote this book because I’ve been concerned about some of the things I’ve observed in the last few years since college football began receiving such extensive media coverage. The fan base is growing rapidly, but the age-old traditions that give it such richness can’t be handed down the way they used to be.
