With the start of the college football season we thought we’d put together a handy guide for those of you out there who aren’t sure where to focus your attention this season. We’ve compiled a list of questions, our College Football Personality Test.
Each answer has a numerical value, one through five. Keep a tally of your score and at the end add it up. That number will correspond to what your true College Football Personality is.
P.S. We screwed over any of you non-BCS fans out there, but we figure you’re used to that by now.

Now total your scores:
If you scored 15 to 25: Congratulations, you’re the Pac-10. You’re laid back but skilled. You’re concerned with how you look but don’t appear to be so. You like your women tan and hot and your offenses of the pro variety with a little spread thrown in for good measure. Oh, and only one of you has a chance of actually winning your conference.
26 to 38: Congrats, you’re the Big 12. You love your cowboy boots and your offense but can’t stand the SEC or defense. You like your women fit, your quarterbacks accented and your offenses spread. You also have an inferiority complex and a split personality…one half of which is constantly dragging you down.
39 to 50: Congrats, you’re the SEC. You’re the best and boy do you like to tell everyone about it. If anyone even suggests otherwise they’re just some dumb Yankee. And probably a socialist or one of them queers. You like your women tan and suggestive and your quarterbacks pious.
51 to 70: Congrats, you’re the Big Ten. You remember when football was a man’s game, played by guys who ran hard up the middle before being met by guys who hit them even harder. Then they started getting too fast for you to hit them all. You like your coaches emotional, your women covered but morally loose and your offenses archaic. Hell, at least you’re not the Big East.
73 to 75: Congrats, you’re Notre Dame fan. You live in another dimension, where people like Lou Holtz and Beano Cook are rational human beings. You still have space on your mantle for both of Ron Powlus’ Heismans and all four of Jimmy Clausen’s national titles. You like your coaches and your women large and obnoxious. Hell, at least you’re not an Indiana fan.
