The LSU vs. Florida game last week was HUGE as far as LS goes. FSU throwing 500 interceptions against unranked BC this week is really fucking their chances. Such a shame Tennessee isn't getting it done right off the bat with Dereck Dooley. I'd love to go to school there.

Depends on what level of schools you are looking at. Tier 2-4 should be based 100% on College football because you'll end up unemployed anyways.

Depends on whether or not you intend to become a sports agent.

Yeah, go to a school that isn't the laughingstock of its conference. (I'm a Virginia grad)

It def made a difference on some level for me, both in UG and in transferring law schools. I didn't have the numbers to get into a good football school initially. Although my UG was much much better than my current law school. #1 vs. unranked, but they have a team that people seem to care about.

You're preaching to the choir, I love UVA football, but the ACC is kind of an embarrassment of a conference to be in. Being a Virginia fan is like being a Bengals fan.

No way dude, picking a school based on College Basketball is a bad idea. Outside of March Madness basketball sucks. Unless you pick the right program at the right time, you're stuck with less than a month of quality sports each year. College football takes up the better part of a semester, longer if you do well enough to go to a bowl game.

You mean there's factors other than college football? Who knew

Just make sure you write a "Why SEC?" essay.

Done, but I'm not going to submit it to Kentucky, because they would get all flustered and not know what to do.

If its USC, and you didn't get into HYS, and you definitely want to work in LA and no other city.

100%

otherwise, 0%.

Also, NYU hasn't lost a football game since WWII.
