This is the job I was born to have.  My entire life (just ask my wife) from the last week of August through to the final Bowl Games wrap up in January revolves around college football.  I even upgrade my television package so that I am able to watch every possible meaningful game out there.

Let’s face it; I even watch plenty of games that don’t mean a thing in the grand scheme of the BCS or any of the conference races.

I just love college football and watch about as much of it as anyone in the world today.  And trust me when I say that the last statement is no exaggeration either.  My Thursday’s, Saturdays, and even my Sunday’s are filled with college football.  Most Saturdays I don’t get off the couch from 10 am when the first game starts until well after midnight when the last game ends.

If I can’t watch a game live I have it tivoed so I can watch it the next day just so that I don’t miss out on any of the action.

The other reason why I would be such a great fit for the job is that I will most likely never have a dog in the fight.  I am a die-hard BYU fan.  They have no conference affiliation and no real tie-ins to the system.  Chances are they would have to go undefeated for a few years in a row before ever being considered.

That leaves me untethered from situations that most college football fans deal with.  They cheer for their team first, then their conference second.  I don’t have that issue to worry about.  Plus I have no motives to lead me in any certain direction.  I want to see the best teams play off no matter what conference they are in, what coach they have or who their alumni are.

Only the football matters to me.  I want to see the best face off and I would be a great committee member to make that happen.  Not to mention the fact that my wife wouldn’t think I was totally wasting my time because I would have a real purpose for all of my game viewing.
