20 College Football Programs As Politicians

The end of the BCS era and an election year. Let's do this.

Posted on

3. Boise State Broncos = Congressman Ron Paul

A force with a cult following, but they represent a threat to the establishment. So no one lets them sit at the grown-up table.

4. Florida Gators = Nancy Pelosi

Seized power from 2006 - 2008, then promptly pissed it away. Arguably the most hated entity on the planet, they have grand plans of returning to the top very soon, and there's thankfully no chance of that happening.

5. Florida State Seminoles = President Bill Clinton

Dominated the '90s and is still on the scene. Gets through every scandal smelling like roses. Copious amounts of booze and scantily-clad women surround these two at every turn.

7. Miami Hurricanes = Reverend Al Sharpton

Burst onto the scene in the '80s with an in-your-face street swagger. Scandals left and right, but keeps coming back for more. Don't try to kill 'em, you'll only make 'em mad.

8. Michigan Wolverines = The Late Senator Robert Byrd

The face of the "old guard", with 99% of their glory occurring before the advent of color television. The program died a number of years ago, but no one had the heart to tell them.

9. Michigan State Spartans = Senator Ted Cruz

Via giphy.com

A ferocious up-and-comer with a relatively small but fiercely loyal fanbase. Loves kicking the big boys in the nuts with a wide array of trick plays: "Little Giants", "Rocket", "Green Eggs and Ham".

10. Nebraska Cornhuskers = Senator John McCain

Via tumblr.com

A former highly respected, dominant player who's been reduced to the rantings and ravings of a bitter old man. Coach Bo Pelini's post-game interviews have the warm and fuzzy aura of WWE promos. It's just sad at this point.

12. Ohio State Buckeyes = Senator Hillary Clinton

Via media.giphy.com

A powerhouse that's loved by many and hated by many more. Makes enemies left and right, but very popular with blue collar drunks in the Midwest. Like Hillary, Ohio State was a spectacular choke job away from winning the whole thing in 2008.

13. Oklahoma Sooners = President George W. Bush

Via media.giphy.com

Peaked in 2000 and spent the rest of the decade as a running punchline due to repeated failures on the big stage. BCS games? "You're doin' a heckuva job, Brownie".

15. Penn State Nittany Lions = Congressman Anthony Weiner

Via tumblr.com

Years of sexual perversion finally caught up with them, yet they're still in denial. The delusional narcissism runs strong with this one.

16. Stanford Cardinal = Senator John Kerry

Via media.giphy.com

Rich. Elitist. No flash whatsoever. Thoroughly uninspiring, even to their own fans. Have a formula that works, but can't win the big one. No bother. National championships are for the common serfs.

18. Texas Longhorns = Presidential Candidate Donald Trump

Via media.giphy.com

Holy insufferable ego, Batman! They're flush with cash, and if you don't already know how magnificent they are, they'll buy a billion dollars worth of air time to remind you.

19. USC Trojans = Governator Arnold Schwarzeneggar

Via buzzfeed.com

A Terminator-esque killing machine for years, hunting down BCS opponents like Sarah Connor. Like Arnold, recent scandals have knocked this beacon of 'California cool' down a couple pegs, but they'll be back.

20. West Virginia Mountaineers = Governor Howard Dean

There's crazy, and then there's CRAZY. In Morgantown, they wave dead roadkill at opposing fans and players, with an armed mountain man as their mascot. We're going to the 20, the 10, the 5...YEAAAAHHH!!!!!!
