Poppe Up! – Friday, December 13


It’s Friday the 13th, y’all, and the scariest thing is that college football season is almost over. How do you feel about it?

Laura McClellan: Surprisingly considering my feelings towards football in the past (apathetic), I am genuinely going to be sad. Over the last few years I’ve really gotten into Auburn football (I grew up about 20 minutes down the road from Auburn), and this year has been amazing so far. I’m sad to see it go.

J.T. Landry: Honestly, I’m ok with it. Unless my (LSU) Tigers are in the hunt, by December, I’ve moved on to other pastures. I mean, go SEC and all, but I just don’t have much stake in the Championship game this year.

Megan Beam: As a die hard from birth Alabama fan who watched the entire Iron Bowl and still hoped the real Nick Saban would please stand up: football season can go now. I need a moment. BYE.

Landry Harlan: This has been a rough season for my both my home team, the Arkansas Razorbacks (Woo Pig Sooie!) and my alma mater, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Both could be regarded as the worst teams in their respective conferences and won’t be going to any bowls this season. So, how do I feel? FINALLY THIS PAINFUL SEASON IS OVER. The only thing that redeemed it was the greatest TV moment of the year, the ending of that Auburn/’Bama game. Let’s be real, that was the actual championship game, and it didn’t disappoint! I always preferred watching the pros play anyways. The Sheriff will be taking my Broncos to the Big Game this year, and I can’t wait for them to hold the trophy when it’s over!

Jen Clapp: The end of NCAA CFB season means that I’m pretty done with sports until next August. I mean, I guess I’m into college basketball, but that’s really not true until tournament time. The only thing getting me through is the promise of the Sochi Olympics. Speed skating, skeleton, curling! Roll Tide!

Brooke Keeler: I LOVE college football.  LOVE.   Like, for real!   So I’m always a little sad to see another year come to a close.  I have several teams that I follow for various reasons, like Texas (this is my team, y’all!), Baylor (my bro went to law school there), LSU (I have a LOT of family in Louisiana), Tennessee (this is my husband’s team), and Alabama (I briefly lived in Alabama).   I root for the teams in the order that I listed them, so that will let you know where my allegiances fall if say Baylor played Tennessee.  It has been a disjointed college football season for a multitude of reasons:

1.  Texas had somewhat of a bipolar year.

2.  BAYLOR!!! I had hopes for you in the National Championship game, and you LOST to OSU. [insert Brooke stare down here]

3.  LSU is always a bit of a wildcard, even in the years that they play really well.

4.  Coach Butch Jones has given me hope for Tennessee’s upcoming seasons, but this year was still pretty painful.

5.  Bama…(smh)…oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Maybe I’m kinda okay with this year wrapping up.  And seriously, don’t even get me started on the Heisman candidates for this year.
