FANTASY COLLEGE FOOTBALL THRU THE AGES: 1990-1999

The Nineties. Seems like yesterday everything go big. The Notoious B.I.G. was big; our President was big into…sax; young girls were big into boy bands (every generation has to do something embarrassingly stupid); fast-food places had their “biggie” and super-size menus. College football got big in this decade especially on the stats page. QBs threw […]

FANTASY COLLEGE FOOTBALL THRU THE AGES: 1980-1989

The Eighties! Fantasy college football in the 1980s….oh what it could have been! The beginning of the common era at least for most of us. ESPN and MTV became huge. We had a New Wave British Invasion in music and now what we call old-skool (rap, hip-hop) was pretty new to those in the ‘burbs. […]

FANTASY COLLEGE FOOTBALL THRU THE AGES: 1970-1979

College football was still more popular than pro football (well, at least until the end of the decade) with top college players of […]

FANTASY COLLEGE FOOTBALL THRU THE AGES: 1940-1949

The Forties. A time where the United States emerged from The Great Depression and became the dominant world power, economically and politically, after ridding the planet of the Nazi and Axis yokes in World War II. An era in which retired TV newsman Tom Brokaw described Americans as “The Greatest Generation”. They were also pretty […]
