Really only the medal count. I'll probably watch some basketball and maybe a few swimming events. I've a become a much bigger fan of the winter games.

Additional Confessions:

1) I've never clicked on a WMD link. I can't watch videos at work and i'm half afraid one of them will get me fired (as i'm typing while at work right now).

2) In college, turned down a few opportunities to visit Marion with one of my good friends (he's from the city/area). Really nice folks but their insanity scares me.

I drunkenly chanted #FireMatta at the hotel bar after 2012 Final Four loss to Kansas even though I believe we won't find a better coach than Matta. I really haven't had fun watching the BasketBucks since the 06-07 season.

Herman proved that he'd only leave Houston for a blue blood/top tier program (sorry South Carolina). What happens in either Austin or College Station this year will determine where he's coaching in 2017.

IMO, Non-Power 5 teams have a better chance at the reaching the Playoff/National Title Game than under the BCS. All it takes is a team like Houston/Boise (mid majors with a track record of success versus quality competition) going undefeated in a year with multiple 1 or 2 loss Power 5 conference champions. See years 2009 & 2010. It could be argued that we would have seen a non-power school in the playoff for two straight years.

I agree that this is the game to change. That SEC v. B1G narrative probably doesn't materialize, we probably still get Urban (because John Brantley) and Troy is probably regarded as the greatest QB in school history.

Comment 05 Jul 2016

Yes, but not in the same class of bandwagon fans that only cheer for winners.

A lot of people have compared your situation to being a fan of an star in an individual sport (like tennis or golf). IMO, that's an apples-to-oranges type comparison.

We probably won't think it at the time, but we are really fortunate to play Tulsa and Bowling Green. Those passing attacks are as (if not more) threatening as most teams on our schedule. The early tests should be good for the secondary in the long run.

Comment 03 Jun 2016

Great insight. The first few games make me a little nervous but the entire back seven should be pretty nasty by the end of the season. There is just so much talent across each of these positions.

Sounds like a certain coach has spooked them... http://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football/2015/04/53110/georgia-wants-no-part-of-urban-meyer

I was shocked that I knew four soccer players.

Forget Bert, Sankey, and the SEC. The B1G could/should just extend the ACC challenge to include football. B1G  schools would get similar recruiting perks for playing games in southern hotbeds like Florida & Atlanta while also playing in Virginia, and the Carolinas. Mid-tier B1G schools would have a better chance at winning their matchups and east coast bottom feeders Maryland & Rutgers could potentially have games that would generate outside interest. Nobody is watching Maryland/Kentucky but a few Mid Atlantic residents would tune in for Maryland play Virginia or Duke.
