Alabama won 'the game that counted'

Posted by Tom Fornelli

The one thing that the BCS has made sure to cram down our throats every chance it gets when it comes to defending the BCS and the bowl system is that "every game counts" during college football's regular season. A stance that was proven wrong on Monday night when Alabama beat LSU in New Orleans to become the national champion and therefore confirm that LSU's win over Alabama during the regular season didn't count at all.

There's no word if the BCS plans to change its mantra to "every game counts except for the ones that sometimes don't."

Either way, Alabama fans are happy with how things turned out, and to commemorate their joy over another national championship for the Crimson Tide, they now have a shirt to remind them and everyone else which game actually counts.

Now we just it around and wait for the Oklahoma States and Boise States of the world to release a shirt that says "we won 12 games that didn't count and lost one that did."

TCU celebrates Boise win with a T-shirt

Posted by Tom Fornelli

TCU's 36-35 win over Boise State was a huge game this weekend that killed whatever chance Boise State had to play for a national title, and TCU wants you to remember this one forever with a commemorative t-shirt. 

Which, admittedly, may be a bit excessive since it was only a regular season game, but TCU had a bit of a chip on it's shoulder.

That being said, it may have been just a regular season game, but it was also one of the strangest games in terms of backstory that we've seen played in college football recently.

You may remember that this game was originally scheduled to be played at TCU, but after TCU announced that it was leaving for the Big East, the Mountain West moved the game to Boise. Well, as things stood on Saturday, TCU is no longer joining the Big East, but the Big 12 instead, and Boise State? Well, they're a candidate to join the Big East.

Well, it turns out that the Mountain West may have done TCU a favor by moving the game to Boise, because TCU was definitely a motivated team on Saturday and it became the first team to beat Boise State in Bronco Stadium during the regular season since roughly 1874, ending a 35-game home winning streak.

And now TCU fans have something to remember it by.

James Madison commemorates big win with shirt

Posted by Tom Fornelli

It's beginning to feel a bit like fashion week here on the blog, as we've already covered the latest in college football fan fashion with the Chris Rainey shirt circulating in Knoxville, and the Sabanade shirt down in Alabama.  Now, we present to you, our latest effort from the folks of James Madison.

You may remember that the Dukes had a pretty big win over Virginia Tech last Saturday, and now they've come out with a new shirt to commemorate the biggest win in school history lest it escape your memory.

After a stunning 21-16 road victory over Virginia Tech last week, James Madison University fans can celebrate the memorable win by picking up a new T-shirt that has hit the interwebs.

The shirt, which is purple, has a turkey centered on it with the Virginia Tech logo on it. Under the turkey is the words 'Thanksgiving Came Early This Year.'

The back of the shirt has JMU's logo and the date and score of the game.

The shirt is selling so well right now that it's currently on back order, so if you haven't ordered one already, it's going to be a while.  Still, you should get the shirt before Christmas as I'm sure it'll make a great gift for the Hokies fan in your life.
