I am in a fanhood crisis.

I became a Clemson fan in 2011 because of Tajh Boyd, Sammy Watkins, and Dabo Swinney. I am doubting whether I really am a Clemson fan anymore because it's not much fun to watch Clemson football anymore without Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins on offense and the only things I like about Clemson are the ice cream, Dabo Swinney, Death Valley, The Most Exciting 25 Seconds In College Football, storming the hill after a game, and how it is a great place to go on Saturday. When I was talking to my family last night, they said that fanhood in college football means supporting the institution itself; through coaching and personnel changes.

If supporting an institution is the base of fanhood, then I do not feel like I fit in with Clemson. For starters, Clemson is a STEM based school while math and science are the subjects that I dislike heavily in school. Second, the only thing I feel like I have in common with other Clemson fans is that we both love Clemson football.

No matter what happens, I still plan on going to Clemson games and supporting Dabo's regime.

However, my options are to

1) Stick with Clemson

or

2) Go on a quest to find a new FBS level favorite college institution to aupport.

Questions:
1) Which of the 2 do you guys think that I should do?

2) If I need to find a new favorite institution, how should I find that new institution? (I do not plan on going to an FBS level institution for college, ties to a school and/or region do not matter to me).

Going to guess you haven't been to college yet? Just enjoy college football for now, then if you get into a school with a football team, latch on for life

I can't even begin to understand what it's like to question fanhood

I have no advice, other than watch games and find something you like. I like my teams based on where myself and my family where born/grew up/went to school it was a natural thing. I never had to pick, that's what secondary teams are for - teams you follow and enjoy but don't care about nearly as much as your favorite

My advice would be don't pick a school based on players or coaches. Then you'll be switching teams constantly. There are multiple other reasons to become a fan of a school

I don't know but for the love of God please don't start a thread with a checklist of things you are looking for and ask us to pitch teams to you.

This is the game that started a thread in NFL General I think about how he wanted with a white collar team after the Cardinals started to suck.

UVA might be the team for you, doesn't get much whiter collar than that.

This guy made the same thread in nfl gen about the Packers. I don't believe he's sincere. That or he is seriously indecisive.

EDIT: Jeezy beat me to it.

Neither can I. Suffering through the Dooley years tested my soul.

Yeah, I think he's losing his touch at trolling the NFL general thread was golden, though I did enjoy Clemson being a poor fit as a "STEM school"

I am extremely indecisive but very sincere. I even have a hard time picking ice cream flavors at the ice cream store and what video game to play in a gaming session.
