Video: Va. Tech fans go nucking futs for “Enter Sandman”

There’s been a whole lot of bad to talk about in the context of college football lately, and all of the negative talk and tone has been justified. But there is a reason why college sports remain so popular, and why so much money is at stake in big time college athletics. That reason?

Criticize college sports all you want – and there are plenty of reasons to criticize – but there is also a magic and an electricity at a college sporting event that you just can’t get anywhere else.
