It’s the most wonderful time of the year: college football season! Sports are a big passion of mine, but there’s nothing like the highs and lows of being a Miami Hurricanes fan.
I didn’t go to a big football school but all’s well that ends well, because I can’t imagine rooting for a school other than Miami. (Side note: former Fordham quarterback and head coach Joe Moorhead is now the head coach at Mississippi State, a Power Five school. It’s, um, not going great.)
This weekend, I’ll actually be back home in South Florida. The main event is my mom’s birthday celebration (hi mom!), but luckily for me, the festivities coincided with FSU week. Florida State-Miami is one of the best football rivalries (seriously, read about it), and one of the most stressful days of the year for me.
I still have vivid memories of Miami’s 16-10 win when I was in middle school, and even more memories of curling up in the fetal position in front of a TV during seven(!!) consecutive meet ups that Miami lost. Suffice to say, my dad and I will be in the stands on Saturday.
I should clarify: this is not the outfit I’ll be wearing Saturday when it’s 90 degrees. When I’m in Philadelphia though, sometimes I want to go out to watch a game without resorting to jeans and a jersey. A vintage wash Miami tee (now almost a decade old) and a corduroy skirt are a fall-friendly pairing, while a denim jacket and glitter sneaks keep it casual and comfortable.
Now, to cross my fingers for some great Miami Hurricanes football.
