College Football is officially here.  The first weekend of games has gone by with a really great Hawaii vs. Cal game which debuted the season in Sydney, Australia. While it may have looked like a blow out on Cal’s part, it really was a great way to start off the season.  What I find most interesting is that this game took place on another continent and it wasn’t Europe. That’s right, it was in Sydney, Australia.  I assume its because all the rugby loving people over there love to get a taste of good old American Football.  I think it’s great the way they are moving football over into the international market.  Between College Football and the NFL I think there is a great movement that will be happening over the next decade.  In the next 10 years I predict we will have at least one international NFL team.  It would not surprise me if they decided to expand college football into other countries (especially with the practical merging of athletic conferences). Here is a recap of the game in one hour.  I love the way these guys create their videos.
