The Boy Behind The Blog: College Football Edition

It's been a couple of months since Parker graced this blog with his presence, so today, the boy behind the blog is back! We take college football pretty seriously around here, so I thought it would be fun to do a little college football-themed questionnaire. We are hoping the Aggies do well this year but are just excited for football parties and another fun season! So with that being said, here's a bit from the boy behind this blog...


Questions and Answers (my responses to his answers are in gray):

1. What is your favorite Aggie game day tradition?
Stepping off on the quad with the band marching by after eating a plate full of BBQ.
The quad is wear the Corps of Cadets live and march from to the field. The band is loud and amazing and leads the march, but not before we have all eaten some of the best BBQ I have ever had!

2. What is your favorite Aggie game day memory?
Being up there with Chelsea every game, sweating our butts off, freezing our butts off, standing our butts off, and yelling our butts off.
Yes to all of the above! The weather was typically scorching not counting the last couple of games of the season, and Aggie students stand for the entire game. Not kidding. The only time we sit is after our band has played at halftime. You typically get a good 8-10 minutes to sit per game, but the whole thing is just the best!

3. Is there a game that sticks out in your mind as the most memorable win?
When we beat Nebraska and everyone rushed the field at the end.
Easily the best game we ever experienced. Nebraska was ranked above us and favored to win. It was our last home game as students, and the Aggies pulled out the win in the last few seconds of the 4th quarter. Everyone rushed the field and was hugging, yelling, and just going nuts. Such an awesome moment!


4. Would you rather sit on the bench for a division I team or play quarterback for a division II team?
Quarterback for a division II team. However, if the division I team was Texas A&M, I would sit on the bench for the Aggies.
This is a fun little hypothetical that he has asked me before, so I thought I would dish it right back out.

5. What are you most looking forward to this football season?
A defense
Preach! We didn't so much have that last year.


The countdown is on and we are ready to cheer on our Ags all the way from Virginia! Who are you rooting for this year?

You're story about the win reminds me of a basketball game I went to in college. It was the last home game of the season and the team had lost every game so far. Somehow they pulled a win in extra time and we all went crazy, screaming, yelling, running on to the court. Good memories.

There's nothing better than football in the south! I can't wait for Commodore football to return. I think we play you this season!

Go CAL, Beat Stanford.

Tell Parker that the Cal Bears had the worse defense in FBS last year and may not be any better. So he does not have the worry about a bad defense.

Love going up to Strawberry Canyon in Berkeley to watch a game. Nothing beats it.

Funny enough, my favorite game was also beating Nebraska at home. It was the first game Mac and I went to after we started dating, and we managed to score the winning touchdown with 11 seconds left.

This is such a fun post! :) I didn't go to a traditional college so I never got the football experience but I live vicariously through Kyle.

War Eagle! I'll be cheering for my Auburn Tigers!

Tess said...

Both my husband and I were born and raised in Fayetteville so in our house we call the HOGS!!! But we will root for any SEC team playing another conference...

I do have a legit question... I notice Parker is wearing boots and the others behind him aren't. What the deal behind that... is he higher rank? Or is it an upper classman thing?

Football isn't a huge sport here, but some of my favorite memories of college are talking with my friends at football games. In fact, people would go to football games to watch RacerBand and then leave after they were finished performing. Now, basketball, on the other hand....
