With issues surrounding off the field behavior, autographs, stipends, and whatever else is in the media; college football (all sports really) have been getting a more and more negative image. The athletes often seem more interested in the future money and programs try to market these players for as much as they can before players leave. Ryan Newsome found a nice example of why so many people watch the games.
A father took his two boys to the Texas Spring Game and while killing time, one of his sons was yelling “Hook ‘Em” to most people who walked past. Likely on the brink of giving up, his mom told him to yell at a young man who looked like a possible player. As he yelled “Hook ‘Em” one more time, he finally caught the attention. The player turned on a dime to come over and talk to the young boy.

College sports especially are built around the remarkable fan bases and players dedicating themselves to their schools. It’s time like these that help forget about the bad and focus on the good that college sports can bring about.
