One Man's Journey to...see a game at EVERY Football Bowl Subdivision stadium!

About Me

Me in Canton

I've been a football fan for 40 years. I have always been more of a pro football guy, and I never paid much attention to college football. I would occasionally catch a game on Saturday. I didn't have much success as a pro fan until Superbowl 36 and Adam Vinatieri's kick. Yes, Go Pats!


I loved rooting for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish growing up, because they were on television all the time, and they had such a fabulous comeback quarterback. He was an unheralded guy by the name of Joe Montana. You may have heard of him. ;)


All of that has changed since Joe left, and I grew up. I went on to become a Michigan Wolverine fan, because I attended that university for graduate school. Since Michigan and Notre Dame are bitter enemies, one had to go -- Alma Maters always stay. :D


Everything changed about 9 years ago. My good friend, Ira, introduced me to the EA Sports NCAA College Football series for the Xbox 360. I have always loved gaming. I am mainly an RPG guy, but sports were always a close second. The idea of taking a bad team and turning them into something special has always captivated me. College athletics have so many more teams to rebuild - so many more teams to turn around than the professional leagues. After building the Wyoming Cowboys into a PAC-12 power, I could move on to rebuilding Army, and so on. I was hooked!


In July of 2010, I popped the brand new version of the game into my Xbox, and watched the opening video.
NCAA Football 11's teaser clip is here:



When I heard those words, that one could go to every college stadium in the country and NOT see the same thing twice, I was inspired. I decided that I wanted to see the smoke in Miami, The Trojan at USC, Touchdown Jesus, and everything else that is the Pageantry of College Football. This is why this lone man is on a plane, a train, a bus, or in my car every Saturday from September thru December. This not about seeing a football game; I have seen many of those. It's about the fans, the traditions, and the histories of each school. Lucky me, I get to combine my two passions -- travel and football.
