If you know me personally, you know that I am not a fan of college football. My dad took me to Stanford games as a kid, against Notre Dame (who always won) and UCLA (who always lost). I wasn’t really big on football at the time, and since red is far from my favorite color, I always cheered on for the other team. Typical me, right?
Last night was, I believe, the first college football game I have ever watched from beginning to end on television. Why? Well the futures of Andrew Luck and Jim Harbaugh, starting QB and head coach of the Stanford Cardinals, may be influenced by my NFL team, the San Francisco 49ers.
We’re a coin-flip away from seeing the Stanford coach heading to the 49ers, with a slight possibility of moving up draft picks to capture a new franchise starting quarterback as well. After the blowout (40-12) against Virginia Tech last night in the Discover Orange Bowl, I’m really excited.
