Pigskins and Letter Sweaters

Trinity College player Charles Sticka (The broken smile is aces)

To say that I am excited about the upcoming college football season would be an understatement. For as long as I can remember I have lived and breathed the sport. The weather has been unseasonably cool here in Virginia this week which has elevated my obsession to a near fever pitch.

The college football game is an American classic - steeped in tradition. Just take a look at some of these great old photos of athletes and the fans that worshiped them:

Coach Consoles Player After a Faulty Pass (sunglasses, scarf, trench coat, cigar - how svelte)

Georgia Tech vs. Notre Dame (difficult to tell the teams apart because of the mud)

Navy Football Players (very little has changed from waist down uniform-wise)

Fans Defend Against the Rain During Purdue's Homecoming

Football Fans (the letter sweater is priceless)

West Virginia vs. V.M.I.

Villanova vs. Texas A&M (modern ball caps can't match the safari hat for style)

College Coed (love the rolled denim capris)
