My Facebook news feed is good for two things:
1) Arguments about politics.
2) Arguments about college football.
I expect Facebook to explode with so much Obama and Alabama hyperbole that the two eventually become one. Obamabama?
Anyway, to help my fellow college football fans, I thought I’d make a quick list of the types of Facebook status updates you can look for during the season. If you see one of these status updates, your best bet is to just leave it alone:
Sideline passes at LSU-Bama, bro. Check it.
Florida 56, Kent State 10. Suck it, Kent State. Suck it hard! Bahaha!
Seriously? What is wrong with Aaron Murray? Dude? Who are you throwing the ball to?
The Sorority Girl
Go Maryland! Beat the Wolfpack! Yay!
The Coach Hater
I’m so freaking tired of only winning 12 games a season. Say it with me Tiger Nation, Miles has got to go!
The Cheesy One-Liner Guy
It’s not UGA. It’s UGaly! Hahaha!
89% of LSU’s wide receivers have been arrested, suspended, or charged with illegally trafficking greyhounds since 2005. Just sayin’.
The Post-Game Partier
Doing it up right with my KA bros in Oxford tonight, baby!
Tough loss, Yellow Jacket Nation. But the boys looked spirited today! I like where Coach Johnson is taking the program. Let’s take care of business versus Ohio in the Potato Bowl!
The Live Play-By-Player
Marshall up the middle for 2. 2nd and 8 on 43. Georgia 3 Tennessee 0.
The Check-In Guy
Joe Jones just checked in at Vaught-Hemingway stadium for Ole Miss vs. Central Arkansas.
The Depressed Guy
I hate this. I really hate this. Why. Can’t. We. Ever. Beat. Texas.
Roll Tide!!!! If you like ALL BARN, thn your gay!!! Raymer Jamer Alabamer!
Good to see Auburn stayed below the salary cap this year. LOL.
Talked to Coach Bobo last week. Watch this. Sprint draw left on next play.
So you’ve probably seen one or two or 15 posts like this on Facebook. If not, you should know they’re coming. They’re out there in your news feed, just waiting to be liked, commented on, and shared.
But even if you see that the Coach Hater’s post has 38 comments and 14 likes, just keep walking right on by. Or, maybe you can do a little good and like the sad little status update of the guy who didn’t receive any love for his check in at Vaught Hemingway.
That’s it! Maybe, just maybe, this college football season, we can all vow to be social media saints, spreading likes, shares and happy comments everywhere!
No, on second thought, screw it.
