The college football season always goes by too fast. It seems like just a few weeks ago we were looking at this season with all sorts of anticipation. Gamecock fans were looking at this season with expectations that the SEC East was ours for the taking.
Heck, Clemson fans were thinking that this year could be the one where they take the next step and make it to the national title game. No one was giving Auburn or Missouri a chance, and no one knew how bad Florida would be.
All that's gone now.

There won't be anymore tailgates with all your friends in the shadow of your team's stadium. The tailgates (which you put more planning into than D-Day) are going to be dormant until next fall. Even if you're going to a Bowl Game to support your team, it won't be the same.
Sure, yeah, there are the bowl games. Too many of them in fact. But the last few months of waking up early on a Saturday like a five year old kid on Christmas morning and watching college football all day are over. No more changing between channels and avoiding yard-work all day while you drink beer all day and bask in the glory of college football from noon until midnight. That's all gone.
We bid farewell to the likes of JD Clowney, Connor Shaw, Aaron Murray, Tajh Boyd, Sammy Watkins, and a host of other great players who amazed us with their skill on the field.
Here's to the 2013 college football season, with all it's craziness, drama, and maddening twists and turns that make us all love it so much at times, and make us all hate it so much at times. Your wives and girlfriends will be glad to reclaim Saturday again.
Until next year, that is.
