What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Anyone who has seen “Dodgeball” knows that there are five rules to the game: dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge. Wait, didn’t we already say that one…

the Five Rules of College Football

But unlike dodgeball, the rules of college football can’t be summarized in five (let’s face it, four) simple words—they’re more sophisticated. Watching college football requires preparation and planning, like staying hydrated and finding enough dishes for the chips and dip.

In today’s day and age, when you can find the answer to every fatal conundrum in the form of a listicle, there are (thankfully) rules you can follow to make sure college game days are worth the wait. After all, there aren’t that many of them, so you want to make the most out of each one. 

1. Never miss a Game Day. Ever.

This rule comes first because it’s obvious—you can’t watch college football if you don’t know when game day is (hint: Saturdays are a safe bet). 

There are several things you can do to make sure you don’t miss kickoff, like setting a reminder on your phone. But college football dates way back to the late 1800s, a time without smartphones, so if you want to be an authentic college football fan, you’ll need to just get a watch. Preferably one with your team’s logo on it, that way you never forget who you're rooting for (there are so many football teams, it sometimes gets confusing). 

Every time you look at your wrist to check the time, you’ll remember that a game day is right around the corner. And yes, we do mean every time. Whether you’re running on the treadmill or meeting your girlfriend’s parents for dinner, there’s a collegiate watch for every occasion so you never have to miss a Game Day.  

For instance, this Texas A and M University Model Three watch is perfect for sporty wear or when you’re going to the gym. 

On the other hand, the Timex Georgia Bulldog’s Clutch watch is more fit for everyday casual wear, like when you’re going to and from classes.

If you’re looking for something more formal, the Timex Georgia Bulldogs Bright Whites Tribute Collection watch is better geared for golf outings and dates with your significant other. It’s also better equipped to handle the wear, tear, and demands of everyday life—it’s water-resistant up to 30 meters and has an INDIGLO light-up watch dial. That’s right, this watch will tell you when it’s Game Day even in the dark.

No occasion is too fancy for team spirit, although there is a right way and wrong way to show it. Really dress to impress with this Loyola Men’s Collegiate Watch by M.LaHart. This scratch-resistant sapphire crystal watch not only looks great, but it’s also water resistant up to 30 meters.

2. Always wear your lucky socks

The people who don’t have superstitions are clearly the people who don’t go to schools with winning teams. Don’t question why Game Days that start with a pair of collegiate socks end with a victory. Some things you’ll never be able to learn in college no matter how hard you study, and that’s definitely one of them. 

There’s no shame in buying a pair of bright and busy team socks that have your school’s logo on it dozens of times. In fact, the more school logos your socks have, the better—you want to make sure everyone knows who you’re rooting for. 

These Men’s Rock Em Mascot Crew socks take the quality over quantity approach. They’re a little scary, but aren’t mascots supposed to be intimidating? You should always wear your lucky socks on college Game Days, but these socks will look especially good if you’re watching the game from a house with a “no shoes” policy. 

Just because people can’t see your school pride doesn’t mean it’s not there. Hot weather, first dates with someone from a different college—both of these scenarios call for socks that are a little shorter and show a little less school spirit. But even in these situations, you can still be pumped for Game Day. Just wear your team logo on a pair of ankle socks.

There’s never a wrong time to wear your Game Day socks. Going business casual? We’ve got your feet covered. 

3. Hydration is crucial

The key to performing well in any sport is hydration. This goes for both the people playing on the field as well as the ones cheering in the stands. Game Day is an all-day, emotionally taxing event, so you need to be well prepared for it. 

But it doesn’t make sense to drink water out of a red solo cup. Instead, use something a little more team-friendly instead—specifically, drinkware with your school’s logo on it. 

Between tailgating and pre-game festivities, Game Days start way before kick-off time. As stress-free as Saturdays are during football season, they are definitely not the days you want to be sleeping in for. The best way to start your Game Day, whether you’re at home or heading to the stadium, is with a cup of coffee. After all, the last thing you want to be feeling on Game Day is tired. 

Whether you’re drinking something hot like coffee or cold like water, the 30 oz. Yeti Rambler is the only form of drinkware you’ll need with you throughout the day. Its kitchen-grade stainless steel with double-wall vacuum insulation will keep your cold drinks cold and your hot drinks hot. Plus, it comes with a lid, making it perfect to take with you to the game. 

Watching college football from your dorm gives you a little more leeway when it comes to staying hydrated—you don’t have to be afraid of using nice lidless glassware! In a world where all drinkware looks so similar, this 16oz floral pint glass will surely make a statement. Not to mention, it’s a great conversation starter (something you’ll definitely be looking for if your team is losing and the vibes are bad). 

4. Rain or shine, football waits for no one

Hulu has live sports they said. But they never mentioned anything about what you miss when you stream the game on your laptop instead of watching it in person. There’s no beating the energy of the cheering fans and close-up views you can only get if you’re in the stands. In fact, some games even come with a complimentary rain or snow storm.

By now you’ve probably figured out that college football is not for the faint of heart (nor is it for those who throw a temper tantrum about wearing lucky socks). Sometimes those glorious Game Days mean sitting in a rainstorm while you watch your terrible team fumble the ball. It’s unfortunate, but true. 

And while you can’t control the weather, at least you can control how you prepare for the game. That’s right people, layer up (unless it’s 90 degrees out there, in which case, you should wear those ankle socks we talked about)!

Even when you have to throw on a jacket, you’re still going to want to show your school pride. (showing people who you’re rooting for can help you avoid disputes in the stands more easily).

This Women’s Sherpa Super Soft Quarter-Zip Jacket shows you have a real commitment to your college football team. Fans around you might be shivering, but you’ll be warm and ready to cheer on your favorite team. Not to mention, the embroidered school mascot on the left chest looks pretty cool. 

If you’re looking for something a little light, go with the High Impact Hoodie Half-Zip Jacket. With plenty of pockets and an adjustable hood, this jacket is perfect to wear at Game Days during the cooler months, especially since it will show off your team colors. 

Yes, sports gear even comes in fleece. This team full-zip jacket checks all the boxes—it’s warm, easy to wear, and shows your school spirit. Not to mention, it looks great.

  1. When it’s not football season, it’s still...football season

Football may have a season, but hardcore football fans don’t. Those with true school spirit are at every Game Day. And if they’re not at every Game Day, they’re at least watching every Game Day. And when they’re not watching Game Day, they’re getting ready for it. How is that, you may ask?

Just because you weren’t drafted on your school’s D1 football team doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the sport on a smaller (and less concussion prone) level. When there’s no actual football, there’s always fiki football. 

Now that you know the five rules of college football, it’s time to get pumped for a new season. After all, Saturdays are for the college football fans. Well, those who follow the five rules, that is.
