Living here in Colorado (Fort Collins) and no one cares about college football......it really sucks. Most people at work were surprised I scheduled work off at 2 in the afternoon. They all think I am crazy about home much I love college football. Most people I work with have no clue about college football. It took until the last few games of the year for CSU to even sell out there stadium. It is sad. They only care about the Broncos. I got in many debates with coworkers, claiming they would win it all this year, which my reply was always "no". I have created a hatred for the Broncos, based on the fans I deal with at work.
Off my soapbox on the Broncos.....but I do have a trade partner that is a painter and is a Bama fan. Him and I spoke about the game and how it would be close. Naturally we both supported our teams. After we won, he said there was no way Oregon would beat Ohio State. He mentioned his brother in-law went to the game and said they have never seen an opposing team just as big, strong, and fast as Bama. Sadly not many people I work with watched much of the game or even wanted to discuss it. Thank God I have a wife that still loves to watch the championship game and talk about it every night.
