ESPN's Bryan Curtis breaks down the rules of college football fandom

In his new article called "Acceptable to Be a Fan" on ESPN's grantland.com, Bryan Curtis discusses the rules of college football fandom. Curtis says it’s acceptable to be a fan if you graduated from the school, flunked out of the school and taught at the school. Also if your child attends the school or you wanted to go to the school but was prevented, then Curtis says you are also a real fan.

On the other hand, if you grew up down the street from the school, you have family that went to this school but you yourself did not attend or went to an Ivy League institution instead – then you cannot be a fan.

ESPN's Bryan Curtis explains.
