Considering the 49ers (100-139, 42%) and Raiders (85-159, 35%) records in the past 15 years, maybe the Bay Area should start following college football more. At least Stanford has won.
So about 10 years ago we're in a hotel in New Orleans having coffee in the lobby. There's a family across from us and the guy is explaining to who I guess was his father in -law that: "He was a Georgia fan until he moved to Alabama. Then he was an Auburn fan, because he just couldn't root for Bama. Now of course he's an LSU fan since they live in Louisiana, but he still roots for Georgia if they're not playing LSU."
Stef turns to me and says: "Aren't you supposed to root for the school you went to?"
I say: "That's not how it works down here".
It's exactly how it works here though. There's really no following of any of the local college teams except by alumni. No subway alumni or tail gate alumni or whatever you want to call them.
