The shirtless guy reading a book at a game. The girl with the death stare that makes you feel like she’s actually shooting daggers at you. The shirtless North Carolina State fan. They are some of our – and let’s face it, everyone’s – favorite fans in recent college football history. These are the people that have continued to bring us joy thanks to the power of a gif and cameramen with excellent timing. ESPN put together a piece that gives us all a glimpse into who these people really are and outlines the downside of celebrity meme status. What we’re most interested in though is the future of sports memes. We just hope that the best is yet to come when it comes to college football memes. Until then, we’ll be replaying some of our favorite moments. If you have time, we HIGHLY encourage you to read the full article on ESPN.

As you all know, we’ll be streaming all of our games on Twitch – so does that mean fan reaction memes won’t exist in the Fan Controlled Football League? Absolutely not! While we know most of our fans will be catching the game on their computers, tablets or phones, we will have stands in our studio for fans to catch the action in person. And don’t you worry – we will make sure our camera crew keeps their eyes peeled for strong reactions from the fans, whether they’re good or bad. On top of that, our games will be open for co-streaming. This means there will be even more potential for some truly classic memes – so keep your eyes peeled! Who knows, at the end of the season, when we’re handing out the hardware, we might even have an award for the the best meme!?!?
