Thank you so much for visiting our website. Here is a little bit about me and our story:
In 2005, while working my 8-6 job, I often became bored and would search the internet for college football information. My appetite was never filled, and thus the idea for TheFansTop25.com (to become fans25.com) was born. On a vacation to Vancouver in December of that year the domain name was purchased in a hotel lobby with the thought of a fan interactive college football website....
My name is Brett Haynes, and just like all of you, I am a fan. I love college football for so many different reasons: the excitement, the competition, and the good times with friends...I have been going to college football games longer than I have been walking, riding into Clemson's Death Valley on my Dad's shoulders "back in the day." The sport is the greatest in the world because of the talent level of the athletes and the loyalty they hold to their respective schools. The passion of college football runs deep, and that is what separates it from all other sports. Hearing 85,000 rabid fans on 3rd-and-long late in the 4th-quarter of a huge game is like nothing else on Earth...
I am a Clemson fan, and a die hard Tiger fan at that. I graduated from the school in 2002 with a degree in landscape architecture and love the University and the community dearly. My parents went there, my brother went there, and my sister went there. I have been a season ticket holder for 24 years and will be until I take my last breath. The outcome of Tiger games has an effect not only on the rest of my Saturday, but the following work week, as well!
I will do the best I can to report unbiasedly the games and storylines you read in the main article on our home page. Please however, bear with me before calling me out for favoritism. After all, I never claimed to be an expert, just a fan like you!
Currently I live just north of Greenville, South Carolina, in the beautiful town of Traveler's Rest, with my adopted Lab, "Quarter" ....
Thank you for visiting!!
