Why College Football off-season is the worst

Off-seasons of sports you enjoy age always bad. It’s obvious why, life with sports to look forward to is just better. But, the CFB off-season is a special breed of bad, and here’s why.

1. NIL Updates

The CFB landscape has completely changed. Students are getting paid up to tens of millions to play college football, often through pretty artificial and transparent “endorsements”. While the occasional O Line getting sponsored by a burger chain is hilarious (or someone like DeColdest Crawford getting sponsored by an AC company), these just get old after a while and make many of us sad about the current business of the game.

2. Obsessing over high schoolers

Yes, recruitment is what fuels college football. But, getting push notifications about the latest 16 year old kid to commit to your rival school gets so exhausting when we don’t have the actual sport to watch. Yes, many of us obsess and follow the recruiting trail because we love the game, but it gets tiring.

3. Dealing with rival fanbases online

Meeting rival fans in person can be quite fun. As long as you don’t go full SEC fan and get stabbed by a rival in a parking lot, we all enjoy a good chirp. This is NOT the same on Twitter or Reddit. There’s nothing like going back and forth with some incompetent rival fan who thinks his team is better than yours because they won a few titles before their parents were born. Just get us to the games already where we actually have evidence that our team is better. And if they’re not, there’s always next season.

4. Bad CFB List Articles Online

Who wants to spend their time reading a crappy list article online when you could be watching a game instead. Wait…what?

Fans Speak Out: Most Over-Hated Coaches in CFB

Despite good to great on field performance and calm demeanors, some college football coaches are just always hated by fans. Yesterday on Twitter we asked our fans who they think the most over hated coach in CFB is right now. Let us know in the replies if you agree or disagree.

Dabo Swinney

Despite skyrocketing from WR coach to the most decorated active CFB coach besides Saban, Dabo has many haters. In fact, this rise to the top is almost certainly a huge factor in most of the hate Dabo Swinney gets. That being said, some perceive his southern tone as occasionally ‘holier than thou’. Here’s some comments from our fans:

PJ Fleck

PJ Fleck started as one of the more inspiring stories in college football. His “row the boat” mantra and punching far above his weight as Western Michigan to an undefeated regular season, everyone seemed to be behind this man when he got the job at Minnesota. However, PJ Fleck hasn’t had nearly the support at Minnesota as he did at WMU. Here’s what our fans have to say:

Here’s some other great nominees for most over hated college football coach by our fans. Which currently active CFB coach do you think is hated on too much? Let us know in the replies and they’ll appear in our CFB forums.

Would you say you need to be one of the best CFB Coaches to be over hated? Will Dabo Swinney, Jim Harbaugh, Gus Malzahn, Scott Frost or PJ Fleck shake their hate if they have their most successful CFB season in 2022, or will it only make the hate worse? As always, let us know in the comments and they’ll appear in our CFB forums on the forums tab.
