When I was in college, watching my college's basketball team play brought me joy and catharsis. I really identified with the players and felt like we were "all in this together." As an adult nearly 10 years out of college, that feeling eludes me. The players look like kids! When I travel to the games the alumni section is staid and boring! If you are a fan of your college's basketball team (or really, any college b-ball team), how do you maintain the interest, and feel passionate about the game, as an adult? [more inside]

Math/sports question! I entered a "Square pool" (purely theoretical money at stake :) ), for the NCAA basketball tournament. I am curious if there are better numbers to have, and why that would be the case. More information inside. [more inside]

I played one season of soccer in 2003 for a NJCAA school.
I am now 28 years old and want to play NCAA soccer. Am I eligible? for how many years?
P.S I have received my bachelors degree from an NCAA school but played no sports there.
I have tried googling to no avail.
A link or citation would be very useful!
I was considering getting a lawyer to help me sort this out once and for all, but maybe metafilter can do it!

Does the UK or other EU countries have any kind of college athletic governing body a la the NCAA? What about collegiate athletics in general?

To SF MeFites: Where's a good place to catch March Madness today? I particularly want to see the Maryland/Houston game around 6:30 tonight. 'Good' here is defined by cheap beer and the chance to occasionally hear some commentary. Proximity to BART a plus, willing to travel to Oakland.

I'd like to buy a set of sheets and a comforter (queen size) with a University of Michigan design--but I can't find much that isn't made out of jersey, which would never stand up to the wear and tear of the dog. Any ideas where to find these (pref. online)? [more inside]

I like playing in sports-related picking contests with friends. In the fall, I play in a football pool in which each participant picks every NFL game against the spread, and the winner is the person who has the most correct picks over the entire season. Right now, I'm in a couple of NCAA basketball pools. What other contests like these can I organize? [more inside]

Here is the situation. I live near DC and would like to attend the Purdue - Baylor game, which is the 2nd game of session 1 on Thursday afternoon. Given that none of the 4 schools involved (Purdue - Baylor - Xavier - Georgia) are from the DC area, and none of them inspire particularly national followings, do you think I can score a good deal by waiting until after game 1 starts and working the ticket resellers loitering around the Verizon Center? I seem to recall watching plenty of first round games on TV where the arena was not even close to full because the teams were not local. I can buy on Ebay for close to face value, but if odds are good that I can save $100 on a pair of tickets by waiting until the last possible second, I'll take the risk. After all it's just a basketball game.
Looking for input from anybody that might have attended early round games under similar circumstances in recent years.

Is their a website that lists historical preseason NCAA football rankings? I have no problems finding year-end rankings and national champions but nothing regarding preseason rankings year-to-year.

I'm thinking of organizing an office pool on the World Cup. I'm based in VA. I'd probably set up something similar to what gets done with NCAA bracket pools. My question is though:
Is this illegal given US gambling laws? [more inside]
