That's cool, except that Dave Matthews Band eats it, and always has.

Pretty cool read but....

Take a look at the size of Big 10 stadiums, Nortre Dame's, & Penn State's. They just don't get into college football as much as us down here outside of Ohio & Michigan. Plenty of NFL teams to root for.

As to the ladies I married the best country girl in the world, & she is form upstate NY.
