College football mercifully begins tonight, ending that painful two-week period after the Olympics ended where baseball was the only show in town.  And while many of you will be tuned in to regional showdowns like NC State-South Carolina (meh), Wake Forest-Baylor (*makes farting sound*), and Oregon State-Stanford (“Pac-10 football: It’s almost like the SEC, but without all the people caring!”) tonight, I thought I’d take a moment to salute the typically insane fandom we’re going to see for the next three months, before it goes away for a month, then returns for about a week and a half.

Anyway, both of the images you see here come via the must-read Every Day Should Be Saturday, which notes Bo Schembechler’s postmortem endorsements and Bear Bryant’s legacy via gigantic houndstooth fedoras that designate the new stadium concessions stand.  Stand by for updates; I’m still waiting to hear back from Notre Dame to see if they liked my mural of Knute Rockne making out with Touchdown Jesus.
