College football fans are some of the most passionate fans in all of sports. Those fans sell out packed houses at some of the most historic stadiums in sports history. Sometimes, though, they expect the unrealistic. College Football Fan Realism is designed to take a realistic approach to college football this fall.
Writer Ryan Decker is a Martinsburg, West Virginia native and has followed the Mountaineers his entire life. The junior journalism major is a broadcaster at WWVU-FM, WVU’s student radio station, and covers the Mountaineer football team as an intern for West Virginia Illustrated. He is also author and editor of Now On Deck.
Yes, Ryan’s still rooting for WVU, but he’s doing so with a grain of salt, and glass of realism. And so should you.
