Being from the North and now LIVING in the South - I've seen the differences between football up there and down here, first hand! We spoke about it on the show this morning and I just had to share some insight (with some help from others)

Stadium Size:

NORTH: College football stadiums hold 20,000 people

SOUTH: High school stadium hold 20,000 people

Homecoming Queen:

NORTH: Also a physics major.

SOUTH: Also Miss America.


NORTH: Rudy Giuliani

SOUTH: Paul "Bear" Bryant

Friday classes after a Thursday night game:

NORTH: Students and teachers not sure they're going to the game, because they have classes on Friday

SOUTH: Teacher cancel Friday classes because they don't want to see the few hungover students that might actually make it to class.


NORTH: An hour before game tie, the University opens the campus for the game parking.

SOUTH: RV's sporting their school flags begin arriving on Wednesday for the weekend festivities.

Commentary at the game (guys):

NORTH: "Nice play"

SOUTH: "Dammit, you slow sumbitch - tackle him and break his legs!"

Commentary at the game (women):

NORTH: "My, this certainly is a violent sport."

SOUTH: "Dammit, you slow sumbitch - tackle him and break his legs!"

After the game:

NORTH: The Stadium is empty way before the game ends.

SOUTH: Another rack of ribs goes on the smoker, while somebody goes to the nearest package store for more bourbon and planning next week's game festivities.
