    I'm not accusing you of being a bandwagon fan at all, I'm just curious as to why you hate UT so much. It's one thing to not like college football, but I don't see what warrants hatred of the team.

    I prefer NFL as well, superior in every shape and form, but college can be fun sometimes.

    I wouldn't even say I hate the Vols. I just don't like them, and I bash them because the majority of players don't give their all. I support them since I go to the school. I went to a game last year, and I'll be going to at least a game or two this year.

    As a kid, I didn't really care for them, and I always found it funny when friends or kids at school would whine about

    This was while the Titans were an elite team too. I'm like guys... there's a better team from your hometown that plays on Sunday. I think the last time a UT game had my full attention was the SEC Championship against Florida.

    I think I've always had the attitude to go against what the majority of people like. Mainstream music = I hate. Network TV shows = I hate. Generic comedies = I hate. Generic action movies = I hate. McDonalds = I hate. College football = I hate.

    If the Vols miraculously become a good team over the next year while I'm still there, I could see me hopping the bandwagon lol... but even if I did start going to games regularly, I could never feel the way I do when the Titans win/lose.

    There are some problems with the NCAA for real. Back in the day when football was just a extracurricular activity at school, unpaid student athletes might have been one thing but major college football is essentially the most popular minor league sport in the country right now. College football players are doing more than just building their resumes for the pros, they are getting valuable "real world" experience into professional style football. Maybe there is something that can be done for these players that risk there entire future just for a four year education that wont take them anywhere in the game if they are seriously hurt.

    Most people will say, "well the players are getting a free education" .. there is no such thing as a free lunch and any player will tell you they paid well for their college education. Also, even though you dont have to come out of pocket for education.. what are you going to do about money while away from home? You are still as broke as you might have been at home, not you are just on campus.

    Meanwhile Universities are pocketing HUGE profits while the players perform all the labor and take all the risk. Pretty uneven deal right now I would say.. I'm sure it makes teams in the NFL a little jealous.

    So foster took money. Two things, got to wonder about the UT backer that would pay for what he did on the hill...I just remember the fumbles that cost victories. Could have been a Bama backer however. Also, again not to :deadhorse:but did he manage to hold onto the money?

    Obviously not, as UT UF in the SEC title game never happened, both being in the east and all.

    All I remember was it was a huge game against Florida. I think it was 2000, maybe? Idk... Either way, I just don't care about college football.

    I don't know all the teams in the East/West. I mean, I know all SEC teams... I just don't know all of them based on East/West. If I really thought about it, I'd figure it out, but I just don't care about college football.
