How do you go about choosing a Division 1 college team?

Recommended Posts

ETSU alumni here who has no real connections to any of the "local" D1 programs. This has been an issue for me for quite some time, people asking who I root for and it's always a "Erm...". So, SWVAsports faithful, help old man Boomhauer choose a division 1 college football team. I'm open to just about any team that is relatively local or within 5-6 hours

That's ultimately gonna come down to what you like. What type of football you like to see. What type of fanbase you like. Colors etc. It's not something to rush into.

I don't have a particular favorite style of offense, if I had to pick it would probably be the spread with some smart run plays here and there. Defense wise, I like to see hard hits, again no particular "formation" but if I had to choose I am fond of the 3-4. I like to have a passionate fanbase,  but not to the point that it's delusional year in and year out.

Fan experience at games is one component. If you like hearing Rocky Top then welcome aboard. 

Another is colors.  Tradition is another. A team’s schematics can be a component. Many—not all—people are drawn by geographic location. Others are drawn to a team for success.

Do not choose a team solely for that team’s success because you will eventually be let down hard.

Someone is going to have to talk me off the ledge of choosing Tennessee.

You don't want that....I've never seen a fanbase who could whine and complain after winning games as much as that fanbase does.

Being a Tennessee fan seems painful, i do think they’ll come back eventually. But I don’t think I need that extra stress in my life.

I'll save you the hassle. Don't pick VT either.

Agreed.

And this is why I said not to lol. You get attacked from a fanbase that hasn’t beaten you in over a decade and then have lacrosse titles thrown in your face like they matter. 😂😂😂

We beat VT like a drum in almost everything else.  VT fans are the ones fooling themselves if they believe the football superiority is worth being the little brother in the rest.

Maybe in the past. But the tide is turning, my friend.
