Home Sweet Home

Admit it: you miss college. And we're not talking a couple months after you graduated, we're talking years later. Sure, you have the fully decked out RV and the basement converted into a shrine for your alma mater but it's still not enough.

Well, the answer to your fan prayers has arrived, at least if you're a Virginia Tech supporter. Balzer and Associates, an architectural and engineering firm based in Roanoke, VA, is offering the first-ever line of officially-licensed collegiate home plans inspired by the Hokie's Blackburg campus. The plans (such as the "Stonehaven" design shown here) are collectively called "Bringing the Hokie Home" and each will have the Virginia Tech logo.

According to reports, several other schools are also interested in similar plans evoking memories of their campuses. As such, we here at the M Zone have come up with some model home designs for a few of those other colleges.

For the Ohio State fan, we have three lovely designs for you to choose from. First, for the Buck just starting out in life we present The Little Woody. This is for the budget conscious Buckeye just happy to have a roof over his head. Comes pre-painted with the Tosu logo and "Fuck Michigan" in any one of 4 colors.

Later in life, once that Tosu grad has been promoted to night manager at the Pizza Hut, it's time take the next step in homes with The Big Woody. This sleek design gives you all the benefits of The Little Woody but in a bigger package to showcase that special Buckeye's success in life.

Finally, the pinnacle of living for any Tosu fan is showcased below with The Tressel. You'll feel just like the coach himself in this beautiful home that screams "Go Bucks!" and "Fuck Michigan!" all at the same time.

For the Notre Dame fan, we proudly offer The Rockne. This simple, classic design says it all...and then some.

Well, those are the designs so far. More to come.

The sweatervest is great. I can't wait to move up in the engineering profession so I can own "The Big Woody." I might even visit the armpit of america known as Meechigan
