NCAA Championship Worthy College Sports Treats (Second Edition)

College-Football-Shortbread-Cookies

Now that the festivities are over, it’s time we await the Bowl season which takes place around New Years. If you’re an American, you know very well that the NCAA Div. I football playoffs usually consist of 4 teams competing for a championship. How they’re selected, I don’t know. But it’s certainly not fair that Ohio State didn’t get a spot despite winning their conference while Alabama did despite not winning theirs. Yes, we know it should be a playoff style with conference champs playing each other. But I’m not sure why the NCAA ever does this. However, if a Div. I college football team wins it conference, they should have a shot at the championship. Hey, it’s only fair. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of college sports treats. Sure some of them might be cookies and cakes but hey, I have to deal with what I can find. Enjoy.

  1. Wolverine fans might want to get a load of this cake.

This one is covered with yellow icing and has the Michigan logo. Seems spectacular as a DIY.

2. Gator cookies always make a tasty Florida treat.

Well, University of Florida treats that is. Includes the logo, gators, footballs, and more.

3. Bet no Volunteers can resist this cake.

And it seems to have the cream orange and white polka dot patterns on the tiers. Yeah, I know it’s a horrifying color combination.

4. Care for some Oregon hoodie cookies?

Because Oregon Duck cookies wouldn’t look badass enough. Okay, I’m probably kidding on that one.

5. Bet this stadium cake is a dream for a Texas A&M fan.

Well, if your college mascot is an Aggie, then this is probably a better option. Still, you have to marvel at the detail

6. I’m sure anyone from BYU might get a load of this cake.

Yes, I know this is a Mormon school founded by the leader responsible for founding Utah. But still Brigham Young had a bunch of wives which doesn’t do him any favors.

7. Ohio State cupcakes should always match a cake of Brutus Buckeye.

Though to be honest, Brutus Buckeye is kind of creepy. But at least some of these cupcakes don’t have his likeness.

8. A Georgia cake should be on the gridiron.

This one has the logo on top of the gridiron sheet. Their mascot may be a bulldog, but the large G stands out.

9. Texas Christian fans would adore these cookies.

This one includes footballs and the state of Texas. Because we all know how much Texans love their football.

10. How about a cake from Oregon?

Notice how they don’t have a duck on it. But yes, the logo is rather stellar.

11. Coyote fans will adore this Arizona cake.

Yes, I know I have a lot of college sports cakes on this post. But I have to deal with what I have.

12. For those rolling the tide, you’ll surely go for these sweet Alabama cupcakes.

Though many aren’t happy with Alabama making the playoffs. But the houndsooth is a nice touch.

13. If you’re a Seminoles fan, you’d probably enjoy these Florida State cake pops.

These are covered in white icing and red and gold sprinkles. Only the plain white ones have the “FSU” on them.

14. For Baylor Bears, get a load of these cookies.

Yes, these are for women’s basketball. But as far as college sports go, I usually don’t specify.

15. No tailgate party should go without these Texas A&M cake pops.

Well, these seem professionally made. Yet, appear easy and not too flashy.

16. You can be rather cavalier about this Virginia cake.

This is from the first public university founded by Thomas Jefferson himself. And yet, their mascot is a term used for royalist supporters of the English King Charles I.

17. Mountaineers can never resist a cake like this.

This one is decorated with blue stars along the base. A stellar cake for any graduation.

18. This Mississippi State cake really rings a bell.

And it’s certainly a cake of a bell as far as I see it. Not sure what’s the significance.

19. Anyone from Auburn will roar over a cake like this.

This cake just depicts Aubie lounging on some brick wall. It’s probably not a cake most Tigers fans will get anytime soon.

20. For cause of celebration, this Nittany Lion cake might come in handy.

This one has 2 tiers and depicts the Nittany Lion. And it’s decorations are quite festive.

21. You’d almost think these Razorback cupcakes are high on the hog.

After all, these are from Arkansas while razorbacks are hogs. And yes, they have a rather vicious reputation.

22. I’m sure Oklahomans would want these cookies sooners.

Since their team’s the Sooners. And I guess these cookies have a lot to do with football.

23. This football cake has the classic Tar Heel touch.

This comes from the University of North Carolina in case you’re wondering. And yes, the football is on the turf.

24. This Nebraska stadium cake is a Husker’s dream.

No, I am not familiar with Nebraska in any sense of the state. But this cake is quite spectacular to see.

25. You can always dessert like a champion with these Notre Dame cookies.

And I guess this one pertains to football which the college is best known for. That along with Catholicism and Irish stereotypes.

26. Perhaps an Ohio State cake with Brutus’s face may suit you?

Well, one without Brutus Buckeye’s face on it. But here it serves as a tier.

27. You can’t guess the matter with these Kansas Jayhawks cookies.

Includes the Jayhawk, a stadium scene, and a football. Perfect for any Kansas plate.

28. Try chomping on this beaver cake from Oregon State.

Includes a beaver on the front. And let’s just leave it at that. Because beavers don’t always refer to these rodents.

29. A Volunteer cake should always have a bow on top.

Once again, it’s another creamcicle cake of two tiers. And no, orange and white don’t go well together.

30. Penn State cookies are always a Nittany treat.

Consists of 2 Nittany Lions and the Penn State logos. Available in the University Park region.

31. You can really sink your claws in this Cincinnati cake.

Well, their team is the Bearcats. So the claws on the C is only fitting.

32. Perhaps a sheet cake from Ohio State may suit you.

Too bad this school didn’t make the Div. I playoffs despite winning its conference. I know it’s not fair.

33. Always need a few buckeye nuts on a OSU stadium.

Well, the nuts on this one are made of peanut butter and chocolate. But it nonetheless seems tasty.

34. Care for a helmet cake from Central Florida.

You don’t hear much about this school but it’s in Orlando. So there’s a strong chance many of its students work at Disney World.

35. You can’t do wrong with an M cake for Michigan.

This is undoubtedly a wedding cake. As you can see with the bride and groom helmets.

36. May I suggest this Wolverine stadium?

This one uses yellow and blue candy for the crowds. And yes, it’s Wolverine supreme.

37. You’d be insane not to miss this Louisville Cardinal cake.

Of course, you hear more about Louisville during March Madness. But this cardinal is rather fierce.

38. A toilet paper tree should be on every Auburn cake.

Not sure what the significance of that is. Maybe toilet papered trees in Auburn is to couch burnings in West Virginia.

39. No Auburn grad could resist these cookies.

Well, they’re blue graduation caps with orange tassles and AU on them. And they come in a dozen.

40. Perhaps this Purdue sheet gridiron cake will certainly be a Boilermaker’s special.

This one has gold and black on the edges as well as black goal posts. I’m sure fans would want it.

41. How about rebelling on a cake this Ole Miss stadium?

This is mostly in blue and red with the white stadium walls. Yet, it’s quite a treat.

Yes, they have to have fancy cakes like these. People in Texas must really love their college sports.

Well, that’s a clever way to use the O. And yes, this is for birthday.

55. With Ohio State, you have the O’s for tiers.

Includes the chocolate buckeyes and leaf on top. Too bad this will only be used for a Bowl game for 2018.

All they have is just a black G on white with red edging. And yes, they’re perfect for any Georgia dessert platter.

57. Speaking of Georgia, care for this ferocious cake?

58. These TCU treats come bite sizes.

These are all purple with the TCU letters on them. And yes, they come in wraps.

59. You’ll need plenty of nuts for this Ohio State cake.

As I said before these nuts are made from peanut butter and chocolate. But in this case, they surround the cake.

60. This Louisville Cardinal cake shows its cardinal pride.

Yes, this is professionally made. But you have to admire the intricate design on this one.

61. Alabama fans prefer a cake as mighty as the Crimson Tide.

And yes, it has a football on top. This cake was probably used for the NCAA for putting them in the Division I playoffs, hypothetically speaking.

62. At North Carolina, nobody can resist this Tar Heel gridiron cake.

I know I have shown a lot of these stadium cakes for this post. Yet, some of these are about as unique as they are incredible.

63. Redwolves fans may want these Arkansas State cookies.

Indeed, these are for volleyball. But they nevertheless count. Even if college volleyball games aren’t televised outside cable and public access.

64. You’d find that both sides of this cake form a U.

Well, this is from the University of Miami. Yet, this one seems rather simple to assemble.

65. For March Madness, you might enjoy this cake for Louisville.

This one has the Cardinal smack dab in the center. After all, as I said, basketball is what Louisville is best known for.

66. Illini fans might enjoy a bite out of this cake.

This is a cake of Chief Illiniwek who served as the school’s mascot until recently for obvious reasons. Though it’s quite the design which will be devoured.

67. This Osceola cake is perfect for the Seminole fan.

Yes, this is a Florida State cake depicting Osceola on a horse. Because Osceola was the head of the Seminole and fought whites trying to take over their land and send them to Oklahoma. Or kill them.

Not Licensed By the NCAA College Athletic Craft Projects (Second Edition)

2016-ncaa-tournament-printable-bracket_m0qbm2jnlpto1cez1g5964cd5

Now that the school year is upon us, it seems very appropriate that we move on to some NCAA craft projects since the college football season has just begun. And yes, I have a picture of a March Madness tournament bracket sheet from last year. But c’mon, it’s a signature collegiate event so it fits. Besides, I’m pretty busy with Easter stuff during March anyway. Anyway, while some diehard fans might prefer to buy overpriced crap from the NCAA store, some may want to make their own. Of course, the NCAA has some craft supplies available since they basically sell anything with a college team logo. But you don’t always have to pay the extra cash if you want to get creative. After all, you can get stuff in your college team’s colors at any craft store. Just look on some of the college crafts on Pinterest. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of college craft projects not licensed by the NCAA. Most of these featured will be from Division I, obviously.

  1. This panel obviously states what’s important to those in Alabama.

Well, that would be pretty much it for any Alabama fan. After all, sweet tea is a noted Southern drink.

2. Perhaps carve a Wildcat jack-o’-lantern just in time for basketball season.

Well, at least the University of Kentucky has an appropriate mascot for it. Still, they’re lucky that basketball season starts in October.

3. A burlap wreath is perfect for any home rooting for the Texas Longhorns.

Though this wreath is more suited for football season. Then again, Texas is a huge football state.

4. Curl up on your couch this season with a WVU quilt.

Just make sure that the couch you sit on won’t be used for burning later. Well, in the event the Mountaineers win.

5. By this sign, this home values Georgia football.

After all, I’m sure the Atlanta Falcons let down the family who owns this sign. Then again, they could just be big Bulldog fans.

6. Support the Wichita State Shockers with these shocking blocks.

Includes some black, yellow, and white flowers on the top. Still, they get the “shockers” name from shocks of wheat.

7. Grace your home with this University of Illinois Fighting Illini panel.

The name Illini gets its name from the Illinois Confederation, which the state gets its name. This is their mascot Chief Illiniwek who’s been a center of controversy since the 1970s.

8. For the big game, how about drink from a sparkly LSU cup.

Yes, support your Tigers while drinking from a blinged out cup. Just make sure the glue’s dry before picking it up.

9. Nothing makes Halloween better than a wooden scarecrow for the Tennessee Volunteers.

For some reason, the candy corn nose is fitting with the school colors. Though orange and white aren’t a great combination.

10. Any home for Big Blue would adore this UK ribbon wreath on their home.

Wrapped with polka dot ribbon and decorated with blue and white flowers. Great for any Wildcat door.

11. Deck your living room on game day with this Michigan pallet.

Basically consists of 2 layers. One depicts the “M”. The other consists of yellow wooden strips.

12. The Oregon Ducks are always the pride of their state.

And here we have a pallet of the state of Oregon in green. Since the Ducks are a beloved team there.

13. A stained glass Illinois suncatcher is perfect to put against a window.

Depicts the “I” in orange against a blue background. Sure it’s not glamorous but it’s not like their Illini mascot logo.

14. No Auburn fan can go wrong with this football hanging.

After all, if you’re not a wreath fan, this will certainly do just fine. Has blue and orange dots on the sides.

15. This Alabama wreath is of pure simplicity.

It’s a yarn wreath that’s red on one side and white on the other. But contains houndsooth ribbons in between.

16. For tailgate specials, you might want to consult this Alabama menu.

Sure it’s blank. But I believe standard fare will consist of hotdogs, hamburgers, or wings. Though I may be wrong.

17. Keep warm at the game with this crocheted Spartan helmet from Michigan State.

Wonder if the visor is adjustable. Probably not. Though I’d like to see a more showy plume.

18. Be decked out for the game with these GSU earrings.

These look like big earrings yet that might be the camera’s work. But any fan from Georgia Southern is sure to love them.

19. Since the game should be a festive occasion, may I suggest this feathery LSU wreath?

Yes, it’s quite festive indeed. But you’ll sure get feathers everywhere after awhile.

20. As far as Vols fans go, the state of Tennessee might as well be covered in checkers.

Well, orange and white checks to be exact. It should have a matching polka dot bow to top it off.

21. Welcome guests into your home with this WVU wooden stand.

Consists of 3 carved blocks tied together with WVU letters on top. Only the letters are painted in blue and yellow.

22. On cold days, you might want to get warm with this Clemson quilt.

Though what consists of a cold day in South Carolina, I’m really not sure. But this quilt is a real patchwork of orange and purple.

23. Grace your front door this year with this Iowa Hawkeyes bow wreath.

Bows are made from ribbon and tulle. Some have polka dots and some don’t. Though I like the gold bead things in the middle.

24. To keep warm during this game, this Iowa quilt is just the ticket.

Yes, it’s hung for decoration. But it has everything a Hawkeyes fan would want.

25. A simple Penn State wreath is a yarn one of blue and white.

But it mostly looks white given the letters and the flowers. Perfect for any Nittany Lion home.

26. Bobcat fans may want to adorn their front door with this Texas State decomesh wreath.

For a large university that boasts an undergrad enrollment of 38,000, you don’t usually hear about it that often. Not sure why exactly. Perhaps the University of Texas has a better team.

27. Anyone can work at this Alabama desk.

Perhaps you might want to spend your time there wondering why Alabama’s mascot is an elephant while its team was named after algae. Because I don’t have the slightest idea.

28. Step out to the stadium in these shimmering Auburn heels.

Though it’ll probably be better going to the game in regular shoes. Since heels can be hard on your feet.

29. You can illuminate your home with this Michigan State bottle light.

Makes sure it’s green before you put the Spartan logo on it. Then add the lights.

30. Perhaps this sign may show you how to be a Red Raider.

This is from Texas Tech as you can see. Not going to go over much of the text. So you can see for yourself.

31. Share a toast at the big game with these Kentucky wine glasses.

Then again, they seem more appropriate for the display case. Yet, at least their bottoms come in different patterns.

32. You’ll always have a seat at this Iowa table and chairs.

Okay, this might be for children. Yet, the chairs spell out “Iowa” for you.

33. You can always make a Notre Dame headband pendant with sequins and beads.

Don’t seem to have much Notre Dame stuff on here so far. Though this will make Irish eyes shine.

34. No Michigan State home should be without this Spartan chest table.

After all, who doesn’t like Spartan accommodations? Then again, the wood looks kind of gray.

35. This Illinois bottle light really shines in a room.

You see this one is mostly transparent with an orange “I” along with blue and orange decor. So if you want to light up your room, this is one for you.

36. At Baton Rouge, it’s “Geaux Tigers.”

I’m sure the French will have a hissy fit over this. But that’s how they have it at LSU.

37. For Huskers fans, you can’t do better than a large striped “N” at your door.

After all, “N” stands for Nebraska. Even if it’s in black and white zig-zags.

38. Sweep up the dust with this Kansas State Wildcat dust pan.

Okay, it seems a bit small to contain dirt. And it’s made from a license plate. But at least it shows some school spirit.

39. A Tennessee wreath can always use some white and orange flowers.

Of course the flowers are fake. But at least this wreath doesn’t scream like a creamcicle.

40. Mizzou Tiger pillows will accommodate any couch.

Particularly if it’s a black one. And all the pillows are gold. Two even spell out “Mizzou.”

41. Support your Fightin’ Irish with these Notre Dame blocks.

No surprise it depicts a football on top. After all, that’s what they’re best known for in sports.

42. A burlap WVU wreath is brilliant in blue and yellow.

As you can see, it has a football on it for the Mountaineers. Let’s hope whoever lives here doesn’t set their couch on fire.

43. For a more warm and fuzzy touch, perhaps an Iowa fleece wreath will do.

This one even has flowers and a football to salute the Hawkeyes. But fans would certainly treasure it.

44. With this garden flag, you can show your love to Georgia Southern Eagles.

Its background is of blue and white zigzags. And it has yellow and white zigzags on the football.

45. Clean your house with this Michigan dust pan.

Okay, it’s a dust pan used for display. But you can see where they’re getting at.

46. Show your Crimson Tide pride with this Alabama “A” hanging outside.

After all, there’s nothing more distinctive than a crimson “A.” The bow makes a nice finishing touch.

47. Make your big blue season shine with this Kentucky decomesh wreath.

It’s in shiny burlap with ribbons of every pattern. Great for any bluegrass Wildcat home.

48. For a simple decoration, you might want to go with a GSU yarn wreath.

49. This decomesh LSU wreath is worthy of festive occasions.

This one has gold and purple decorations on it in swirls along with a tiger on top. So pretty.

This one has the strips of wood in different places and sizes. So it can create a rather stylistic effect.

54. A yarn wreath for Michigan State has to be green and white.

Has the Spartan logo on it for all its Michigan State glory. Yet, you have to admire the white and green flowers, too.

55. A Longhorns wreath always has to be full of bows.

Most of these are in dark orange and white. And there are footballs on the top and bottom.

56. This Nittany Lion bird house will suit any Happy Valley roost.

Yes, a Penn State house is great for the birds. But remember the school’s mascot is a mountain lion for God’s sake.

57. For colder weather, wrap yourself in this Penn State quilt.

Yes, it’s a real Penn State patchwork of a quilt. Mostly blue an white with a dash of pink here and there.

58. You can always get a swig of beer in this Illini glass.

Though the logo might seem rather offensive to Native Americans. But it’s well painted.

59. Grace your door with a wreath from the University of Oklahoma.

Their mascot are the Sooners, by the way. Because Oklahoma’s called the “Sooner State.”

60. For a more rustic look, a Notre Dame wreath of burlap would be nice.

Contains the school logo along with blue and gold ribbons. So lovely but not too flashy.

61. No Tallahassee couch should be without this Florida State pillow.

This one has the Seminole logo along with other things pertaining to Florida State. Bet it took someone a lot of time to make this.

62. Light up your humble abode with this Hawkeye bottle lamp.

This one contains some melted stones for a more varied look. But it certainly exudes Iowa pride.

63. An crocheted Auburn throw blanket can certainly drape your couch.

As you can see here. Probably took whoever made this countless hours. But for a die-hard Auburn fan, it was worth it.

64. Keep warm while watching the big game with a crocheted Ohio State afghan.

This one has zigzags of red, white, and gray. Strange that I didn’t put a lot of Ohio State stuff on here so far.

65. A Kentucky Wildcat fire pit table goes great with any stone patio.

The table itself consists of tiles you’d find at any hardware store. Though I’m sure if I’d want a bonfire to be on the table. Looks like an accident waiting to happen.

66. Raise your baby to love the Vols with these Tennessee bibs.

The Ts are made out of orange bandanas. Not exactly up to par, but it works.

67. An Aggies fan can’t possibly do without a Texas A&M desk.

It’s painted black with the letters on top. Will probably fetch a pretty penny on Etsy if for sale.

68. Bet you’ll find a lot of comfort in this LSU chair.

Sure it might be made out of wood painted yellow and purple. But at least it has cushions on the seat and back.

69. Nothing makes a Buckeye fan proud like this Ohio State wreath.

It basically resembles the school’s logo. Though I have to admit, the buckeye leaf does bear some resemblance to the pot leaf. Sorry if I happen to notice it.

70. A simple burlap Wichita State wreath does just fine.

It’s wrapped in yellow with the WSU letters and a bow. Lovely, yet so simply made.

71. You’d almost swear these LSU bottle lights glow.

Each one contains the LSU Tiger logo along with yellow and purple stripes. And each is lovely in its own way.

NCAA College Athlete Exploiting¬†Merchandise (Second Edition)

8f579b33e91985b014b1c45c6f1b4f73

Now it’s on to college merchandise. You know the overpriced stuff colleges and the NCAA makes money on but the athletes don’t really get any royalties off of. Most of the time you will find college sports crap sold at campus stores. But if it’s Division I, then you’ll find plenty of local stores carrying college stuff at a cheaper price. And even then, it’ll carry the teams most popular in the area. For instance, the Wal Mart stores in my area usually sell Division I merchandise pertaining to Pitt, Penn State, and WVU since they’re nearby and the most popular.¬†Most of the NCAA sports crap you might see usually consists of apparel with the school’s logo on it along with a few other things. But most of the time, colleges will sell their fan anything that will give them money, no matter how ridiculous. And as I can testify, there is not shortage of collegiate sports craziness in merchandise. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of weird college merch from the NCAA.

  1. Be a Fightin’ Irish on the grill with this Notre Dame burger flipper.

That way, you can demonstrate your grilling skills against Touchdown Jesus. Then again, you might get a better flipper at a lower price.

2. A Notre Dame drag along cooler always keeps food and drinks fresh.

Comes with pockets and a zipper. Great for storing cans at a tailgate party. Could probably buy a cheaper plain version at Wal Mart.

3. This Penn State crock pot is great for tailgating fare.

After all, you need something to keep the chili warm in Happy Valley. Though a plain one works better at a lower price.

4. For a more rustic setting, may I suggest this Notre Dame basket cooler?

Man, seems like they have all kinds of cooler types out there. Can’t really understand this one.

5. Enjoy your ride to the stadium in this Mizzou Tiger car.

That might be school property and thus not for sale. Still, since it’s helmet shape, I’ll put it on the post.

6. For long travels, hop along the Kentuck U Express.

Sure it’s not exactly merchandise. But it’s one of the last things you’d expect to see a Kentucky Wildcats logo on.

7. Nothing makes your steak taste great like Penn State steak sauce.

Yes, it exists. I know it’s ridiculous. But I’m sure it’s the only steak sauce you can use at State College.

8. At Columbus, Ohio State high heeled shoes are the latest craze

Though you’d more likely want to wear sneakers at the stadium. Just because you’ll do a lot of walking.

9. Carry your drinks to the game with this Penn State bottle tote.

Has room for 6. Though you can also carry them in a cooler which would be even better.

10. Stun the stadium with these University of Kentucky jeweled flip flops.

I don’t see the point of these. They seem more appropriate for summer, which isn’t during football or basketball season.

11. No man cave is complete without a line of Pitt lamps.

Or woman cave, not that we should judge. Comes in wood, brass, and metal.

12. Enjoy the big game with this WVU end table cooler.

Now you can put it on a stand and use it to get drinks while you watch the game. You can probably find one cheaper at Wal Mart without the logo.

13. Now you can serve drinks at your own Florida Gator bar.

Comes with an umbrella, cooler, and stools. Great for a tailgating beach party but not near actual gators.

14. Grace your holidays with this Michigan State Santa on Sousaphone.

And I see there’s an elf inside the Sousaphone. Of course, in marching band, he’ll have to find some way to get around the presents.

15. If you want to know the time, humidity and temperature, perhaps this clock from Penn State can show you.

Yes, it’s a rather sophisticated clock. But you can probably get it cheaper if you remove the Nittany Lion logo.

16. Support your Hawkeyes with an Iowa dog sweater.

Because this isn’t about keeping your dog warm. It’s about you projecting your tastes to your dog.

17. Keep warm at Happy Valley with this Nittany Lion hat.

That looks terrifying and more or less resembles a bear. But it’s said to be rather fuzzy.

18. You can’t have a tailgate party without some Penn State salsa.

Penn State salsa? Seriously? What’s with using college logos for foot? Because that’s utterly ridiculous.

19. Every Penn State fan must have this commemorative desk statue of Joe Paterno.

On second thought, chances are he knew at least something about what Jerry Sandusky was doing. So maybe you might want to reconsider.

20. Enjoy hours of fun with some Notre Dame foosball.

Like anyone needs a foosball table anyway. Seriously, you’re better off spending your money on something else.

21. Raise a glass to your college team with your Penn State wine glass.

Even has indictors to gauge your mood by how much you drink. Beware if it’s almost full.

22. This Notre Dame holder will keep your pool sticks in check.

I’m sure a regular one would be cheaper. Besides, seems more suited for a bar.

23. The birds will be mighty fine with this Ohio State birdhouse.

Though the birds won’t find any buckeye nuts here. Just seed.

24. Your little one would love to curl up with this light up Oregon Duck.

Yes, I’m sure it makes a cuddly plushie which lights the room with stars and the logo. But the Oregon Ducks still have a mascot that resembles Donald Duck from Disney.

25. Keep warm during the winter with a pair of Nittany Lion mittens.

Okay, those look kind of creepy. Seriously, Penn State, how about gloves that just have the logo. I think everyone would be fine with that.

26. Kick back and relax in the great outdoors in this LSU bench.

It’s in purple and yellow for the Tigers. And it’ll certainly grab attention from onlookers.

27. A fairy princess should always have her WVU wand and crown.

Guess the NCAA will do anything to appeal to young girls. Though given that WVU is home to the Mountaineers, denim dress seems more appropriate.

28. Penn State cuff links make any suit look flashy.

Though they might seem unprofessional at a business meeting. So perhaps they’d be better as a collector’s item.

29. You can always be comfortable at the office in an LSU swivel chair.

Kind of loud colors for office furniture. Maybe better suited for a home office.

30. This Pitt pet bed is the ultimate den for your 4-legged friend on March Madness.

Though Pitt men’s basketball hasn’t been doing too well lately. Though that’s a nice replica of the Petersen your dog will ultimately destroy.

31. Always decorate for the occasion with some WVU holiday flags.

Got two for Christmas and one for Halloween and the 4th of July. Strange one of them doesn’t depict a burning couch.

32. Spend evenings lounging around this Ohio State campfire pit.

Great for the well made patio. Has a big “O” in the middle to indicate where to light the fire.

33. A wheeled cooler is perfect for cooling drinks for Florida State fans.

This one looks like it was made. But make sure to put ice in there first.

34. For Christmas, you can’t do without a set of Arizona Wildcats Nutcrackers.

Since when do they have nutcrackers for college teams? This is crazy. At least a Ohio State one would make more sense.

35. Be the hit on campus in this Ohio State car.

Resembles a car from Hot Wheels. But looks pretty real. Not sure why anyone would buy it.

36. Enhance your living room with this Mizzou Tiffany lamp.

Sure itm ight seem a bit old fashioned. But if you like your Tigers enough, you’ll probably want it.

37. Spice up your food with some Penn State hot sauce.

Since there’s nothing spicier than watching your Nittany Lions. And anything you put your hot sauce on.

38. Dress your little leprechaun in these Fightin’ Irish bootie socks.

Yes, show your baby your love for the Irish and harmful Irish stereotypes at the same time. Yeah, Notre Dame needs to sort out its priorities.

39. Raise a toast to the Vols with this Tennessee chalice.

Okay, it’s more of a decorative item than an actual cup. And it stands on wood. Still, I find it rather tacky.

40. Tee up on the links with your Nittany Lion golf clubs.

That being said, golf is lame sport for rich people. Even if in the Nittany Lion guise. And I think this set costs an arm and a leg.

41. This Cinci Bearcat theater seat brings great comfort in your home.

Though it’s not as great as watching it on a recliner. Also, probably costs more than a La-Z-Boy.

42. Nothing makes stuffed pretzels irresistible like Penn State dipping mustard.

Dipping mustard? From a jar? Why can’t you just squeeze the mustard from the bottle and put it on your plate? That’s what most people do.

43. Take a cue at this Ohio State pool table.

Pool tables are already expensive and hard to move. I suppose this one would cost an arm and a leg.

44. Your living room is never complete without an Iowa Hawkeyes glass table.

It has a glass top and a shelf that resembles a football field. Very breakable and very expensive. Don’t recommend it for families with young children.

45. Kick back on the porch in your very own Ohio State swing.

Even contains cup holders so you can enjoy a drink or two. Though it’s not like the swing in my backyard at all.

46. Fire it up with your very own University of Kentucky grill.

After all, what’s a game without anything barbequed? Of course, a non-Kentucky grill would be cheaper.

47. Boise State Wing Dip is perfect for any Bronco wings.

Yes, Boise State’s team is the Broncos. I know it’s confusing since they share the same colors as Denver. But there you are.

48. Go to the game in style at Baton Rouge in an LSU Tiger bus.

Okay, it’s more of a trailer or RV. But it’s in purple and yellow stripes. Yikes!

49. Spend hours of fun with these Oregon video game controllers.

Both are green with the Oregon logo. You could probably get regular video game controls for less money though.

50. A WVU glass set goes great in your china closet.

Yes, the glass is pretty. But c’mon, most of you would rather have your bottles with flowers than a WVU logo. Yet, I could be wrong.

51. Keep your grill safe from the elements with this Notre Dame cover.

Then again, you can get a grill cover at Lowe’s or Home Depot for cheap. Doesn’t have to have the Notre Dame logo on it.

52. Got loose change? How about an Ohio State piggy bank.

Has a buckeye nut necklace and is decked with leaves. Got to like the red snout and ears.

53. Have hours of fun with some Notre Dame Yahtzee.

Has the Fightin’ Irish logo on the box. So you can roll the dice in the cup as long as you’d like.

54. Keep your golf clubs safe with these Ohio State covers.

Yes, I know I put the Penn State golf set before. But this one just shows the covers with the Ohio State logo.

55. Serve some drinks for guests with this University of Kentucky dispenser.

It’s a small ceramic striped container with stripes and a spotted lid. Not sure if it holds much of anything.

56. Watch the game together in these Penn State couples’ chairs.

Because the couple who watches games together stays together. Also, “Ms.” would’ve been more appropriate than “Mrs.”

57. Entice your guests at the big game with this Ohio State casserole dish.

Or “Game Day Kickasserole” which is better than casserole to some people. But please, a plain one would be cheaper.

58. An LSU baby should sleep in a crib like this.

This one has stadium padding. Think this is kind of pushing it. But I’m sure some fans would want to put their baby in this.

59. No Louisiana garden should be without a LSU bird bath.

It’s just a dish with a stand. Sure it looks pretty. But wait until the birds start shitting on it.

60. Eat your snacks while you watch the Mountaineers with this WVU chair tray.

Kind of wish I had one myself. Though I wouldn’t watch sports games using it. And it wouldn’t have a sports logo on it.

61. Keep your drinks cold with your very own Penn State mini fridge.

There are a few of these in different styles. But this one has the name on the side.

62. Ring in the holiday spirit with an LSU Santa hat.

It’s purple with the LSU letters and tiger logo along with holly. Great for any fan of LSU for the holidays.

63. Drape your big screen in your patio room with a Florida Gators cover.

Has an elastic band you can put in the back. Though why one would want a TV set near their patio is beyond me.

64. You can play all you want with this WVU toy train engine.

Though I’d suggest you go with Thomas the Tank Engine instead. Since your kids would prefer the trains from that franchise. This seems more what the parents would want.

65. Enjoy a time outside with this Florida State Seminoles picnic basket cooler.

It’s a combination between a cooler and a picnic basket. So you can have the best of both worlds, I guess.

66. Welcome the holidays with a UCLA stocking.

Try hanging that on your fireplace. Sure it’s not exactly what some expect. But I’m sure UCLA fans would want it.

67. Brand your steak with a Nittany Lion touch.

Yes, now you can brand your steak with Penn State. Like it’s really necessary. Not.

68. Proudly show off your school pride with a Baylor onesie.

Guy seems to be so proud of himself. Though I have no idea what to think of a garment I think is more appropriate on babies.

69. Enjoy hours of fun with this Alabama dart board.

Oh, it’s a dart board. Thought it was a pair of cabinet doors when I used one for my NFL merchandise post. That’s certainly makes me feel dumb now.

70. Carry your things to the game in this Michigan adventure wagon.

Okay, it’s not suited for a stadium. But you can fold it up and take it with you.

71. Carry your things from the store in this Michigan shopping bag.

Bet it comes with insulation to keep your food cool until you put it in the fridge. Great to take with you to Aldi.

72. Can’t make a fine steak without this Penn State rub.

Yes, they have Penn State steak rub. However, you can basically make your own since most recipes include a rub of some kind.

73. Keep your room lit with this University of Kentucky lava lamp.

Since when do lava lamps have to do with sports? Those two don’t seem to go together for some reason.

74. Kick back on your very own big blue Kentucky couch.

It’s a suede couch with the UK logo. But even though you might want a couch like this, it’s unlikely you’d buy one.

75. Enjoy your snacks in your very own University of Illinois snack dispenser.

And it’s shaped like a football helmet just in time for the season. Chips on top. Everything else is on the face mask.

76. Have your little one take their first steps in these Tar Heel booties.

Yes, these are cute. But regular booties are just as adorable. And cheaper.

77. For your pool party, you can’t go without a University of Illinois cooler floatie.

It’s even inflatable with cup holders. Still, why would you want to use drinks in the pool? That’s just nothing short of unthinkable to me.

78. Put your tailgating fare on this Penn State table.

It’s an interesting shape with the logo. Not sure if I’d want it in my home though. Since it’s not really my taste.

79. Store your candy in these Penn State Pez dispensers.

Each one has a topper of a football with a Penn State logo. Yet, the candy is inedible.

80. If you want a basket and a cooler, this piece from Notre Dame is for you.

Yes, it has the Notre Dame logo with a basket weave. Great for picnics and tailgating.

College Sports Fans Dressed in School Spirit Attire (Second Edition)

WIN_20170825_11_40_20_Pro

Here am I in my March of the Bearcats polo and Saint Vincent College basketball T-shirt.

As the school year begins so does the season of college sports. In particularly football. Though you’re bound to find plenty of students and alumni cheering in the stands on game day, many of these schools have fans far beyond that, especially if it’s a Division I university that makes loads of money from exploiting their student athletes. But now’s not the season to talk about that since it’s more suited for a March Madness conversation. Anyway, when it comes to posts to college and NFL, I kind of prefer doing the college ones. Mostly because you have way more than 32 Division I colleges across the country, many with a lot more interesting team names. Not to mention, a lot of the Division I college teams tend to be in uncharted territory for me. Yet, it’s not unusual for Americans to prefer their college teams over their pro teams. Mostly because the college teams are much closer to where they live, particularly in the South and in the heartland. And yes, many of the fans can be quite crazy, which is where I come in. Thus, for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of college sports fans. Most of them are from Division I, by the way.

  1. Apparently, the University of North Carolina is the No. 1 college for smurfs.

One of them even has blue hair. And both have a footprint on their shirts.

2. Seems like Boston College has a party school reputation.

What the hell are drunk Bert and Ernie doing here? Seriously, that doesn’t set a very good example to young children.

3. Seems like we have a colorful show of characters at Texas Tech.

One of them has a Minecraft head. One is all checks. While the others, let’s not get into that.

4. Speaking of Boise State, how about checking out these guys in their striped overalls?

And yes, they’re all in blue and orange from their hair to their toes. A couple even have fros.

5. Auburn is the place you can really be a Tiger.

Okay, it’s mostly face paint. But you get the idea. And yes, the fangs are fake.

6. At Ohio State, someone must be bucco for the Buckeyes.

Yet, the Buckeye guy on his head is a bit of the top. Also, what’s with the rose necklace. Oh, I get it.

7. For the Florida State Seminoles, you got two superheroes and a line of country western chorus girls.

You might remember the superheroes from last year. But the women with Seminole tops are a different story.

8. At Oklahoma State, this Viking’s helmet has its horns upside down.

That’s not to say he kind of resembles an Oompah Loompah. Also, note his friend with the spiky orange hair.

9. Apparently, the red men go for the Utes.

Okay, that’s a very racist depiction of Native Americans. And you want to know why they don’t like when colleges appropriate their culture into their athletics programs.

10. At North Carolina, basketball season is a time for blue hair.

Though their wigs are more or less made from Easter grass. Also, the basketball hats are hilarious.

11. There’s no bull about these cows from the University of Maryland.

Okay, they’re not technically cows since they certainly have no udders. Though you might want to steer clear of them for now.

12. Behold, the golden boy from USC.

Interesting he’s wearing a shiny gold speedo. Yet, to be fair, he doesn’t look quite bad. Yet, don’t tell that to the woman next to him.

13. You’d almost call this guy all pinned up for West Virginia University.

Note that he’s wearing coveralls over his jersey. Is supposed to be dressed as a mountaineer, miner, or what?

14. At the University of South Carolina, you’ll find a line of guys saluting their gamecocks.

Okay, it’s mostly body paint. But at least these guys didn’t paint their faces because that would be bad.

15. Even Santa is a huge fan of Ohio State.

However, he’s also with bald guy with a painted face and a guy with a nut necklace and weird hair. And yes, even Santa has some nuts on him.

16. With their hats, these Oregon Ducks fans are totally pumped.

One of them even has drinks on his hat and Hulk hands. And their school has a mascot resembling Donald Duck.

17. This guy really wants his Florida Gators to crush the Crimson Tide.

It’s on his hat by the way. Yes, I know it’s kind of crazy. But at least it’s creative.

18. At LSU, this man’s loyalty to his Tigers is never in question.

His way of supporting his Tigers is another story. Seriously, what’s with the body paint question mark?

19. As far as face paint is concerned, these faces have some very interesting patterns.

Indeed, these are Oregon Ducks fans. But one has a zigzag face. The other’s got checkers.

20. You might find this banana appealing if you come from Arizona State.

Yes, I know he looks pretty weird, especially with the sunglasses and banana costume. But he sure knows how to get attention.

21. You may think clowns and Stormtroopers would be at odds unless it’s the Arizona Wildcats.

One guy’s wearing a clown wig and suit. The other is a an Imperial Stormtrooper who probably won’t hit anything.

22. Speaking of the University of Arizona, seems like they might be on the Dark Side of the Force.

And the Dark Lord of the Sith has decided to go casual. Not to mention, paint his helmet red and blue.

23. Apparently, someone’s into Pirates of the Caribbean at Arizona State.

Wonder if he feels cool in his Jack Sparrow hat and wig. However, I don’t think it’s helping.

24. I believe we have a couple of tiger sharks at Auburn.

It’s a takeoff from Katie Perry’s Super Bowl performance. But these have stripes for the Auburn Tigers. Kind of ridiculous but fun.

25. This Baylor fan wanted his beard to match his outfit.

The beard is made from yarn to disguise his discontent for how his team’s doing. And to match his outfit.

26. You’d be scared out of your mind to find these guys at Boise State.

Think of their costumes as a mix between the Chippendales and Saw. Not sure what the two have to do with each other.

27. You’d almost think this Arizona Wildcat fan’s head is bursting with fireworks.

Though it’s mostly a foam mohawk with red, white, and blue stuff coming out of it. But yes, it’s utterly ridiculous.

28. This guy’s all red for his Crimson Tide.

You’d think he spent too much time in the hot sun. But it’s just body paint.

29. As skeletons, these Georgia Tech women are here to frighten you.

I hope these women are Mexicans. Because that’s in the style for the Day of the Dead. And Mexicans don’t like seeing that part of their culture appropriated, especially on Halloween.

30. At Brigham Young, the Hulk shows his support.

Or is it the Abominable Snowman? Such costume in blue gets me so mixed up.

31. At the University of Georgia body painting and clown wigs go hand in hand.

Well, they have red paint to spell out Georgia. But the clown wigs are mystery to me.

32. Apparently, you’ll find a blue Guy Fieri at Boise State.

And he’s holding up a hammer with flaming red hair. Not sure why.

33. At Oklahoma State, this cowboy supports his team in the most country way.

Well, to be fair, cowboys did pass through Oklahoma. But not in body paint and a foam hat.

34. This woman will go all out for her Crimson Tide.

Apparently, body paint is said to protect you from indecent exposure. Yet, the elephant certainly fits.

35. You’d almost think these Florida State Seminole fans were made for each other.

They paint themselves in dark red and gold and don’t have much on. Seriously, the woman is in a bra and undies.

36. This Sun Devils fan has impressive hair from Arizona State.

Seems to have the Arizona Sun Devils logo right on his hair. Wonder how he gets through a doorway.

37. Apparently, these two guys are a bit sheepish on the chest.

Well, their mascot is a ram. Yet, painting a sheep on your chest, really?

38. Looks like Boba Fett is a Gators fan.

He even has a cape and shoulder pads on. Hope he doesn’t get sucked in by a sarlacc any time soon.

39. Apparently, you’ll find a spotted horse and two glitter guys at a Seminole game.

Now that’s bound to distract people. The horse is especially freaky. Not sure why anyone would want to paint their bodies for their sports team.

40. Speaking of Florida State, this super fan is super pumped.

Sure she may be dressed as a superhero. But today she’s cheering her heroes in the stands.

41. These University of Georgia fans are all spiked up.

Well, spikes on the shoulder pads. And all have makeup on their faces. One looks like Jigsaw.

42. At Oklahoma University it’s all in the hats.

Of course, this is where the wind blows sweeping on the plains. So they better hold on to their hats.

43. You may not want to be with this masked mob at Gonzaga.

They’re definitely there for March Madness since Gonzaga got pretty far in the NCAA tournament. One of these has horns.

44. No one’s a match for this Iowa Hawkeyes clown.

Let’s hope this scary clown induces nightmares for the other team. Though I’m sure anyone who looks won’t be able to sleep after the game.

45. You can never wear enough traffic cones to support the Kentucky Wildcats.

Didn’t know you could fit that many cones on shoulder pads. Also, doesn’t look too happy.

46. You don’t need to paint your body if you’re a fan of LSU.

Sometimes an electric or safety razor will do. Though I don’t recommend anyone try it. Seriously, just don’t.

47. This LSU Tiger is really into the game on the field.

Doesn’t hurt that he’s wearing a gold and purple robe. Sunglasses and helmet aren’t too bad either.

48. Take a look at that LSU cheerleader.

Yes, I know it’s a guy who doesn’t look great in a cheerleader outfit. But he looks pretty hilarious.

49. At Marshall, you’ll often find a bison headed man in the stands.

After all, they’re known for the Thundering Herd in West Virginia. That and the movie We Are Marshall.

50. At the University of Miami, this guy’s part of the West End Zone Crue.

After all, he’s doing it for his Hurricanes. You know wearing the outlandish glasses and bling.

51. For this Hurricanes fan, it’s always about time.

Here he has an orange hoplite helmet with a green plume. Also has spikes on his shoulder pads.

52. This Transformer always goes for the Miami Hurricanes.

And I see he has a green and orange helmet with white shoulder pads. And no, he doesn’t turn into a car.

53. Apparently, Miami and Florida State fans can exist side by side.

Doesn’t hurt that both of them are dressed like Super Mario Brothers. Yet, I guess their princess is in another castle.

54. This guy goes full bat mask for his Michigan Wolverines.

He even has Michigan glasses and a megaphone with bumper stickers. Guess anything for the team.

55. Seems like if you want to support Michigan State, you got to have green hair.

You’d also want pairs of Spartan glasses, too. Yeah, weird right?

56. Even Gumby is a fan of Michigan State.

And here he is with a couple of guys in green. Yeah, I can see where this is going.

57. This creepy clown wants you to support the Michigan Wolverines or else.

Another creepy clown under a ski mask. Guaranteed to haunt your dreams. Sleep tight, sweetie.

58. Missouri Tiger fans support breast cancer awareness.

They’re all in pink with tiger stripes. Though the women are wearing pink shirts for obvious reasons.

59. Seems like many of these Navy guys are real ship heads.

So they actually have these foam hats. Though I prefer the other hats.

60. I’m sure some guys will get a kick out of these LSU Tiger women.

I see they painted themselves like tigers with bras meant to blend in. They also have the tiger headbands with ears.

61. You might want to check with this mouse from Syracuse.

I know this mouse is from a cartoon, but I can’t recall it. Yet, I see sports fan dress up as this character on Pinterest.

62. She cheers for the Syracuse Orange even if she didn’t make the squad.

She has pom poms in her hair and hands. Seems like this was for March Madness.

63. Mario doesn’t seem to like how this Texas Christian game is going.

Too bad Mario doesn’t have access to mushrooms so he can get bigger and shoot fire balls. Maybe that would help TCU even though that would be cheating.

64. Didn’t know that the University of Tennessee has fans out of this world.

Sure it’s not a real spacesuit since those things are incredibly heavy. But he’s nevertheless here for the Volunteers.

65. These masked men come to see the game for Texas Tech.

One of them has a black Spider Man mask. But the other masks remind you of a horror movie villain.

66. This super squad of fans will not let the Tar Heels down.

One of them even has a Batman logo with UNC. A woman has a high hat. And they’ve all painted themselves blue.

67. Best to go all orange and stripes to support Auburn.

All he’s wearing on top are shoulder pads. Not sure if he’s comfortable.

68. Apparently, USC fans start out young.

Makes you wonder what these kids will be like when they’re older. But they’re kind of adorable with fake hair and body paint.

69. I bring you a real USC Trojan.

Well, he’s dressed like a hoplite from the Trojan War. Though it’s a bit over the top.

70. My, those must be large spikes.

Sure he’s going for the Utah Utes. But at least he’s not as bad with the cultural appropriation.

71. This man is all golden for his Notre Dame Fightin’ Irish.

Well, he’s certainly flashy with a bowtie and flower boa. Least he’s not dressed as a leprechaun.

72. One has to go orange for the Tennessee Volunteers.

Kind of resembles an Oompah Loompah here. But that’s the magic of body paint for you.

73. This Husky woman turns out sparking for Washington University.

Yes, she has to show up in sparkling pants and a husky hat. Yet, you should see the guy in a yellow coat and plaid pants.

74. This purple horse always cheers for his Washington Huskies.

I know he looks silly, especially with a purple horse’s head. Oh, how far fans go for their team.

75. These Mountaineer fans are going to rock n’ roll all night.

Of course, they had to paint their faces as members of KISS. But at least they didn’t don the wigs.

76. This fan from Miami has a bit of a skull face.

Not sure if it does the trick. But the hat and polo don’t do that look wonders.

77. No matter how you see it, her hands make a U.

For University of Miami of course. Her U things can also be used as oven mitts by the way.

78. At Stanford University, this Cardinal fan’s an evergreen supporter.

Not sure why the Stanford mascot is a tree. But this guy really has his school spirit in him.

79. At Clemson, these Tiger women have put on their stripes.

Unlike the LSU fans, they’re not covering their faces. But yes, this is ridiculous.

80. DCU women always go for Syracuse.

You see, Catwoman and Wonder Woman may not always get along. But they can still be friends.

81. If you’re for Purdue, you just have to wear the flashy robes.

Well, if you want to be seen, that seems to be the way to go. Though they’re rooting for their Boilermakers in strange attire.

82. At USC it helps to stand like a real Trojan.

Uh, this isn’t 300. Besides, Trojans didn’t fight in the buff either. It’s probably more appropriate for this guy to look like this when he’s wearing a Trojan on his sword. Though his abs aren’t all that bad.

83. Here we have a warrior at Oklahoma State showing love for his Pokes.

Yes, he’s in a toga and Roman helmet. I know it doesn’t make sense. And no, I don’t understand why he’s wearing gloves.

84. For some people, a Florida Gators game is a family tradition.

They’re wearing jerseys, spiked shoulder pads, and dyed hair. The dad has his colored blue.

85. For golden masked me, it’s always the University of Toledo Rockets.

Not familiar with that school. But you have to think these guys are nuts to wear masks and wigs like that.

86. There’s strong and then there’s Army strong. And then there’s these guys.

And these soldiers have their team spelled out in yellow body paint. Not sure if it’s got on their uniforms.

87. At LSU, she likes to get into the Tiger’s skin.

Well, at least she managed a photo op with the mascot. Though at least it’s better than body paint.

88. It’s very clear that the Founding Fathers are behind old Virginia Tech.

You’d think they’d be for the University of Virginia which Thomas Jefferson founded. Just saying.

89. Batgirl always goes for Boston College.

She even has a flag to show for it. Though the uniform does appear a bit 1960ish.

90. For these Cowboys, Mizzou Tigers are all the way.

And they’re shirtless, too. Still, not sure if Missouri had any cowboys. Doesn’t seem to make sense.

91. Best to wear the team you love on your back.

And it seems like this person has to do the Batman pose. Fair enough.

92. At Michigan State, the Spartan fans who go to games together, stay together.

And it seems they went with the striped overalls and the Spartan hats. Not sure if I like that.

93. You have to wonder if this Seminole fan is being serious.

After all, he’s dressed as the Joker. Even has his suit despite his goatee.

94. This group of Elvises salute Ole Miss.

After all, Elvis was from the great state of Mississippi. And one of them even dons Ole Miss colors.

95. At Oregon, everyone’s committed to diversity.

For they accept Mexicans and anyone with weird colored hair. As long as it’s green, yellow, or both.

96. Didn’t know you could find Vikings in Arizona.

Of course you can’t. But that doesn’t stop this guy from wearing a helmet with horns. Even if most Vikings didn’t.

97. It’s al zebra striped with this Washington Huskies fan.

And yes, he even has a wrestling belt and husky shirt on him. Yet, he’s clearly kind of flashy in purple.

98. It helps if you arrive in a cape at LSU.

I see his cape is made from duct tape. And that he has his chest painted.

99. All this Nebraska Husker wants to do is watch the game.

And yes, he has a corncob on his head and his face painted. Kind of creepy but he doesn’t bite.

100. My, this Oklahoma State Cowboys fan has a small hat and a large mustache.

Yes, his stache his so huge, you can’t even see his mouth. But how he keeps that hat on his head, I have no idea.

Now that the Christmas festivities are over, it’s now time for the Bowl season that takes place around New Years. Of course, almost every sport you can think of has a playoff. But NCAA Div. I college football does things a little differently. In fact, its playoff system only consist of 4 teams. How they’re selected I have no idea and I think it’s a very stupid system. Because the NCAA Div. I college system has it that a college football team can have an undefeated season but still not be championship eligible. Then there are the bowl games, many of which don’t really mean anything unless it pertains to the Rose Bowl or whatever other bowl game whether it be the Orange Bowl, Cotton Bowl, or the Sugar Bowl. It’s confusing. Anyway, if my dad had it his way, the Div. I college championship should consist of the top team of each conference in a playoff. And I have to agree on it. Because like the Electoral College, the BCS Bowl Series and Div. I college football championship system doesn’t make any damn sense. Whereas, March Madness certainly does. At any rate, since I did NFL food posts relating to the Super Bowl, so shall I do a treat post pertaining to college sports. But college football being what it is, I won’t limit myself to playoff teams. So for your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of college sports treats. Most of these will be from Div. I naturally.

  1. Any fan of Ohio State would want a cake with Brutus.

Not Licensed By the NCAA College Athletic Craft Projects

CFBMapIII

So I’m down with fan costumes and merchandise. Now it’s on to college sport craft projects. You might’ve noticed that unlike the NFL craft post, I didn’t include a picture of myself. Mostly because I don’t have any college sport craft projects so I decided to go with the college football fan map instead. I figured since college football season is soon to begin next week. And if I decide to go with a craft post during March Madness, I’ll use a basketball one. Anyway, you may not think that sports and crafts go together if you haven’t been on Pinterest or Etsy. Yet, even though more men like sports and women do crafts, understand that there are plenty of female sports fans out there as well a guys who do crafts. Then there are college athletes like famed Penn State football player Rosie Grier who later played for the LA Rams and took up needlepoint as a hobby. If you look on Pinterest, you’ll find a lot more sports team crafts on there than you can imagine. However, when it came to looking for craft projects in college sports, it’s a bit tricky. Along with the merchandise, I had to google names of several different colleges to find them. Because if you just type anything relating to college sports crafts, you’ll just end up finding stuff mostly from Alabama and LSU trust me. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of the unique craft projects of college sports. Most of the craft projects featured will be representative of Division I teams, naturally.

NCAA College Athlete Exploiting Merchandise

Snapshot_20160826_4

Here am I in my University of Florida Gator snuggie I received from an uncle of mine who lives in Panama City, Florida. Sure it’s not appropriate for summer weather. So I only wore it for the photo. Then again, considering that the University of Florida doesn’t have a lot of cold weather, this Gator snuggie is perfect for my opening post picture.

As I said before, college sports is a huge business in the United States despite that practically all college athletes don’t get paid in any tangible currency. Sure they’re supposed to receive an education from the school. But plenty barely have any time for that, particularly if they’re Division I. Nevertheless, since college sports are incredibly popular, it should surprise nobody that you’ll find a lot of college sports crap if you look hard enough. Yes, I know that colleges make money from ticket sales, tuition payments, contributions, and the like. But as long as there are people willing to buy overpriced crap, they might as well reap in the benefits. Besides, in college sports, it’s usually the brand that’s more important than the players since they’re only in the programs for up to 4 years before graduation anyway. Hell, some don’t even graduate if they become eligible for the pros (despite that this doesn’t happen very often. And when it does, there’s a strong chance they may not be nearly the star player they once were in their college days. Just ask Heisman winner Tim Tebow). Nevertheless, I can go along with showing you all the jerseys and other items they sell. But you’d probably be bored with it. So instead, I’ll show you items that might make you scratch your head since few would even consider buying something like that at all. Most of these items are from Division I schools naturally.

  1. Take your little one to the big game with this purple and gold LSU stroller.
Not sure about you. But I don't think any parent should take young children to a Division I college game. It's not very kid friendly environment and they'd probably be whiny the whole time.

2. This Penn State bar counter is perfect for tailgating at Happy Valley.

That is, if you have a pickup to carry it in and are willing to spend a large amount of money on outdoor furniture. Other than that, it's not worth it.

3. This Oregon hoodie allows you to carry a beer bottle in your pocket.

However, if you see someone with a hoodie like this on them as well as a beer bottle in them, they may have a problem. This is especially if they have beers in both hands, too.

4. Sing the blues when your team loses with this WVU acoustic guitar.

Because singing annoying country music is a much better way to deal with your emotions than setting a couch on fire. At least it won't lead to calling the fire department.

5. No LSU fan’s home is complete without a Tiger toilet seat.

This is actually a vintage item and may not be available. But it's made from solid wood and intricately carved.

7. Have your baby show Wildcat pride on March Madness with this University of Kentucky blinky.

For the love of God, these overpriced pacifiers aren't worth your money. Seriously, why do they even exist? Just get a regular one for your baby. It's cheaper.

8. Stomp in support for your Nittany Lions with these Penn State cowboy boots.

I can understand if these are sold in the western colleges, especially if they have a western themed mascot. But Penn State? State College was never in cowboy country!

I don't know about you. But I think thermometers shouldn't hold bias to the seasons. And this gnome is obviously carrying a snow shovel.

Yeah, I know I showed you similar stuff in my NFL merch post. But these colleges tend to sell similar products. And a lot of them tend to be ridiculous as well.

16. Propose to your Buckeye girlfriend with this Ohio State engagement ring.

Then again, guys, on second thought, don't. Seriously, just because you and your girlfriend are friends of Ohio State, doesn't mean you should. Because it might backfire.
