The Cinderella Story: FGCU Eagles

Next team on my Cinderella list is none other than Florida Gulf Coast. This is a team that is not far from the last time they were the Cinderella Team of the NCAA Tournament. In 2012-2013 they stunned everyone with their high flying athletic team. Defeating Georgetown and San Diego State as a 15 seed […]

Conspiracy Behind Johnny Football

The Man. The Myth. The Legend. The Conspiracy? Within the past week, Johnny Manziel has come back into the media light in surprisingly a good way. He said he has become sober and is ready to make life changes. He told everyone he hated how he was in 2016 and that in 2017 everyone will […]

The Cinderella Story: Vermont Catamounts

Happy Gameday everyone! I recently just traveled to Tuscaloosa for the Texas A&M vs. Alabama game. This wrapped up my traveling for the year as I will not be traveling to Starkville for the Mississippi St. game today and I will be living the life of a college football fan from the couch. I did […]

It is always special to me to go to other stadiums and enjoy a game day from someone else’s perspective. That is exactly what I did this past weekend. Texas A&M had a bye week so I decided to “take my talents” to South Bend for the Notre Dame vs Stanford game. I’m sorry I […]

Ryan Plugge: Tailgating A Top 10 Match up Against Tennessee

Remember those movies you watched as a kid or the books you read growing up where everything falls into place perfectly?

Ryan Plugge: Tailgating at Jerry World

Top 20 SEC match up against old school SWC foes. Night game kickoff so fans will be enthused. What could go wrong?

This past week my friend, Chris Paradowski, and I made the road trip to Auburn, Alabama. […]

Ryan Plugge: Tailgating week 2

Morning tailgates. It is a different battle. Are you supposed to go out the night before or do you call it an early night in order to be 100 percent in the morning? No one knows the correct answer. All I can tell you is, in the great words of Ron Swanson, “Never half ass […]

Ryan Plugge: Tailgating

“College Football is back.” This might be one of the better sentences in the world besides the typical “I do” or the doctor saying, “It’s a boy/girl.” And my goodness it was 5 straight days of solid college football! But as any team would tell you, winning the game starts with the preparation that happens […]

Fashion 101: Texas A&M Football
