The Top 10 Most Annoying College Football Fight Songs

I'm just gonna come right out and say it - college football is the best sport in the world. Unlike professional sports, where lockouts and strikes by multimillionaires are commonplace and players allegedly collude to form all-star teams in an attempt to "earn" an easy ring (I'm looking at you, LeBron), college football is steeped in history and tradition, with rivalries dating back to the 1800s.

College football has the most passionate fans and the most exciting regular season of any sport. Say what you will about the lack of a playoff, but with only two teams out of 120 getting a shot at a national championship at the end of the season, literally every game counts. You can't say that about the NFL, where just last year the then-undefeated Colts turned up their noses at a chance to make history and opted to rest their starters for the second half of a "meaningless" late-season game with a playoff berth already clinched.
