Hey all, I've been a fan of the NFL for a while now and my desire for football grows so I'm looking to try to get in to College Football, even though their playoff system blows. I'm just wondering if some of you peeps who already follow it can educate me on things I might need to know, differences from the NFL, what the makeup of Division 1-a is, what the different conferences mean (Pac-10, big 8, etc) Also, if I pick a team should I be able to follow that team? The choices I've narrowed it down to are USC, Michigan and Notre Dame, all of course because they have Patriots ties. My Cable company has a College Football pack as part of the super sports pack (which includes Sunday Ticket, Centre Ice, MLB Extra Innings, NBA League Pass, etc.) so if I get that should I be able to follow my team most weeks? That's pretty much all I can think of as far as questions right now. Thanks for your time all. Edit: I forgot the whole bowl thing. I know the national championship is picked by the BCS but what about the other bowl games, how important are they, like what is the benefit of winning them if any other than to say you're the champ of this bowl. How are the other bowl games selected. I think I remember hearing something about every division winner getting a bowl berth or something.
