More Officially Licensed College Football Homes

Last week, we put up a post about a Virginia firm that was offerring the first-ever line of officially licensed collegiate home plans, starting with homes "inspired by" the Virgina Tech campus.

Well, we here at the M Zone have come up with a few more designs they should consider.

First up is The Sparty, a 1,400 square foot house directly in the shadow of the larger home just down the street.

Next we have the The Bowden, a charming FSU-inspired colonial, complete with field goal posts for practicing those pesky game-winning kicks.

DAGGUMIT,how dare you attack all that is sacred in college football. By the way, I do believe that is Sebastian Janikowski peeking out the bedroom window, he does have one year of eligibility left.

Great stuff.

I proposed a GT version that has a backyard reminiscent of the Forest Moon of Endor.

Yost said...

That's great, Paul. And thanks for Ye Old Linkage.

Yost said...

Thanks, D.

I am forwarding this to my beloved brethren at War Chant so they are aware that you are spreading the evils of the the wide right myth.

May their traffic and posts help you see the light that all is Bowden.

Yost said...

LOL, Slim. Show us the light, baby!

Awesome. I guess the medioctrity of MSU is just further indicated by the complete lack of any response to the truly ouch-worthy Sparty."

And you forgot to mention that The Bowden has closets with built in shoe racks for all the free shoes.

My dear Yost,

I would never dream of addressing you as YO, In the future please refrain from calling me Slim.

As for you Mr. Baggypants, may the starch in your speedos chap your family nuggets.

Yost said...

Dearest Mr. Slimrod,

That's why I go commando.

You are indeed a true gentleman.

Unlike the reptilian sub-creatures,(Gators) we are subjected to on a daily basis here in Florida. Appalachia my friend has nothing on Gainsville.

Hey.....I thought that house with the goal post was Mike Lantry's....

IC said...

Nope. Matt Frantz's.

Cheater McSweatervest said...

Didnt Matt Franz kick a game winner against MEECHIGAN in the famous "EARLE HEADBAND" bowl in '87?

IC said...


You're right.

For almost 20 years I've only remembered Frantz for missing badly on a field goal attempt at the end of Michigan's 1986 win in Columbus. After reading your comment I did some research and learned that Frantz put tOSU ahead 23-20 (the final score) with over five minutes left in the 1987 game.
