Landon’s Call: Football!

Several years ago I found myself souring on college football. Something that had once brought me a lot of enjoyment became a topic I avoided. And, if you live in the south, this can be very difficult at times. Some of my frustrations are detailed here.

I grew up loving college football. In a home full of Gator fans I chose to pull for the Seminoles, creating multiple opportunities for me and my siblings to alternately learn lessons in humility. Not that we actually learned humility, but we certainly had opportunities. I then decided to become even more contrary and began to pull for anyone who played against Florida. Since the only team I had the chance to watch on TV; rarely, at that, was Florida the simplest thing to do was pull against them. Naturally, my conversion to being a Georgia fan was fairly simple.

However, I want to see if I can once again become a fan. As I do so I hope to write a little more regularly and while it won’t always have to do with football it will give me a regular starting point. My youngest son, Landon, loves college football and I want to give him an opportunity to learn and engage on a secondary level.

So, along with some random posts on my part, you will see Landon’s Top 25, projected playoffs, and his game of the week.
