Waco is a growing city in Central Texas with a population of about 130,000 people. Within this growing city lies a private, baptist university with a growing reputation for success in college football, Baylor. Baylor is a modern example of overrated success, the American bandwagoner 's dream, and the copycat system of head coaches today in football. Over the past few years Baylor has become known for their high octane offense, where they use speed to accelerate passed defenses to score, and they do score a lot, and the don 't let up. The system prefers a mobile quarterback, since that 's when it works best, such as when Robert Griffin III was at quarterback, Bryce Petty was underrated for his ability to run with the ball, he got what …show more content…
Yet, worst of all about Baylor is their fan base. Baylor fans are the worst. The Bears would arguably have the most bandwagon fans in college football right now, and it makes sense. Texas is home to twelve FBS college football programs, headed by Texas and Texas A&M, and like any program Baylor has always had fans, but a lot of more Baylor fans have appeared the last few years. The culmination of Texas 's weak play recently and Baylor 's consecutive eleven win seasons make them a perfect place for bandwagoners hopping off of Texas. Plus, the brand new McLane Stadium brings a lot of excitement to the area with more seating for new fans. Honestly, if you want to find a true Baylor fan, ask him to name three quarterbacks before RG3, if he can name some then he 's a legitimate Baylor fan. Yet, the bandwagoners aren 't even necessarily the worst part, with the recent winning going on fans in Waco think they 're the royalty of college football. Like, chill out a lil ' bit there, you 're just a joker who 's had some funny one liners recently. Yet, the worst thing to hear from a Baylor fan is "51-48", in reference to this year 's win against TCU, where Baylor made a 21 point comeback in ten minutes, which is cool in all, but they fail to forget that Baylor gave up a similar twenty point lead to lose to Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl. But hey, ignorance is bliss. All in all, I hate Baylor, I hate Art Briles for ripping off Oregon, I hate how over-hyped they

This isn’t something that could be done from one day to another and is also difficult to do because football is an American sport. Many people do not recognize the Cowboys for the football team as much because they haven’t been doing so well in the past seasons. The most important part of the team is the brand name and how it has grown to become something more than a football team (5). The cowboys do not need to win a super bowl anymore to be successful. A similar situation could be when looking at a big car company, such as Ferrari.
Houston has never lost a playoff game at home. The offense is good enough to score a few points, and if the defense plays well enough, that is all they will need to win a game or two. I doubt the Texans will win the Super Bowl, but crazier things have happened. Houston is a good team that should not be overlooked. They may not be world beaters, but this is a scary team with J.J. Watt on the defensive lone.
On May 6th, 1861 , Arkansas made one of the most idiotic choices it has ever made, it succeeded from the union. When the original vote took place , five delegates voted to not join the confederacy , but when asked to retake the vote, all but one had suddenly changed their mind. How would they so easily change their minds , probably because something else other than a convincing argument had been involved. All but one man said we should secede, so Arkansas did what the majority voted, but just because there is a majority, doesn’t make it right. Arkansas was in a extremely tight spot during the decision and that definitely impacted the final choice.
Gaining Texas is worth the risk of war: The annexation of Texas is worth the risk of war with Mexico. For many years Mexico has been seizing American vessels illegally and confiscating our cargoes to meet Mexico’s needs. Mexico for many years has performed numerous lawless acts upon people and property of United States citizens. The many years of aggravated and unredressed wrongs from Mexico that the United States has endured has violated solemn treaty stipulations and of every principle of justice recognized by civilized nations.

Quest for number one in college football Bowl Championship Series (BCS) is the most controversial college football system when trying to choose the best teams to play for national championship, because there are always questions about how teams are picked. In 1972 a bowl coalition was formed and attempted to implement some sort of structure to help the top ranked teams in the BCS and Non-BCS play each other, which was unsuccessful. Membership to the BCS can be very profitable; the BCS bowl games can bring in millions in revenue per year, whereas non-BCS bowl games receive about 180,000 per year. Which means the rich keep getting rich and the poor, struggle. Additional each BCS conference champion is guaranteed a bowl game regardless of record,
Why the Super Bowl Should Come to Kansas City “Every game I've ever played, regardless if it was pre-season or Super Bowl, meant the same to me, and I laid it all on the line.” Brett Favre. People love the Super Bowl because it’s the biggest game of the year for what some people call the most competitive sport. Having it in Kansas City would boost the city’s revenue and perhaps more people would come and visit again. The three reasons the Super Bowl should come to Kansas City are, the city has great transportation, hospitality, and food, it’s in the middle of the country so no one will have to travel cross country, and that the Super Bowl has never been to Kansas City, and where else is there to host it that’s as great a place as Kansas City?
Recruiting is an important factor in any college sport but most definitely in football. With HBCU football programs possessing a negative image this unfortunately veers young athletes to take another route. People don’t want to watch 1 star athletes play football, harsh statement but true in its validity. HBCU football programs are starting to appear on TV more than it has in the past and this is a great thing to see as an HBCU football player. We understand we aren’t the most popular but we’re doing the same thing they’re doing just not in the spot

In Texas, football is a way of life; people eat, sleep and breathe it. Specifically for the people of Odessa, Texas this is very true. The book Friday Night Lights follows the 1988 Permian High School football team as they made their run for the State Championship. This type of culture that puts football and, everyone involved in it, on a pedestal creates no room for anything besides football to succeed in a town like Odessa. In 1988, when this took place, gender, class and race all mattered a great deal.
When people hear about if college athletes should get paid they would say no because they think the athletes would get paid millions of dollars. It is not like that, college athletes would not be paid that high they would only need to be paid so they can live a decent life. They have to balance their lives with school and their sports. College athletes should get paid because The NCCA is billion dollar business and the athletes don’t get any money, athletes spend more hours working for the sport than the average American, it helps athletes manage their money.
It takes a lot of work to have the smarts and throw a football knowing you could be knocked out by a 300-pound grown man coming full speed at you.

There are other GOATs and other farm animals, but he's like the biggest GOAT.
