    Hello All!

    Hey guys, what's up?

    My name's Ben. I'm 14 years old, personally am a Florida Gators fan. I hope to one day become a sports writer or sports analyst, so I'm trying to meet as many fans as possible to share my work with and of course, talk some college football!

    I'll try and give as much insight as possible. Hope to see you around!

    Re: Hello All!

    especially don't mind me. I'll probably end up on your 'ignore' list.

    Get used to it, because that feeling just gets worse.

    Have you gotten to the point where you feel like the creepy older guy at certain bars?

    Hey Ben

    Welcome to CF! You should be able to get some interesting conversation from this site but I'm guessing you may not have gotten the warmest reception from the OU site.

    Good luck on your career choice!


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    I think they saw a loss coming. In the downtime between the Big XII Championship and the Title Game, the site I visited turned off registrations.

    I did get a few "Gators Suck" messages on YouTube. Normally I reminded those UO (I found out they dislike being called UO as well) fans that Stoops was 4-4 in bowl games, 2-4 in BCS games and 1-2 in title games, losing those title games by an average of 21.5

    For the most part, they'd be quiet. Some decided to make a fool out of themselves... they didn't say too much following the game.

    I do call Oklahoma fans the worst fanbase in the game. I've spoken with fans from most major universities, and have to say they are the worst as far as class goes.
