Spring is here and the time for on-campus football freshmen has come. Getting up for college football seasons in the fall requires the fans to pay attention to postings and blogs out on the net , or read your state newspaper's biased views on how your favorite team will win the BCS national championship.
I , as a huge Clemson Tiger fan am just hoping for positive strides under Dabo Swinney and looking for a ray of hope in a wide open league. Other fans of other teams have higher aspirations (see fans around Gainesville, L.A. , Baton Rouge and Columbus...) but we in the Palmetto state (yes that means in Cola-Town too !!) need to hold off on title talks at least for the forseeable future.
Spring practices , spring games and the like brings us all great anticipation and puts a smile on the faces of young and old alike. I like the reports on my team page which cronicle which players are looking strong , what freshmen impress and who will be looked to for leadership in the fall. Players and coaches alike are getting a feel for each other and the fans are getting out the what-nots for the summer season where you wear the colors and fly the flags. You get to clean off the tailgating gear , shine up the grill and wash -out your officially licensed underwear while smiling fondly at the picture of the home stadium on your den wall.
Just can't wait til' fall..... nothing against the spring or summer , but the fall is the penultimate for college football fans.
GO TIGERS !!!!!!!
