College Football Teams ...

Can you name each FBS team in 12 minutes.

https://www.sporcle.com/games/jcgamer107/all_fbs_teams

This challenges you to name all 130 teams with a 12 minute time limit.

This may be easier than the team Nicknames challenge, since this is just the team, and is set in columns by Conference & divisions.

See how many you can get, Good Luck!

Whew!!

That was a lot more difficult than I had anticipated.

I had trouble with the auto abbreviation of certain names. When typing in some names, such as; Northern Illinois, it auto loaded to the slot after Northern Ill. So when I finished the inois, it was still in the box for the next name I typed in. Which forced me to backspace and retype it.

That happened with quite a few.

I did eventually get 100% with 1:36 left. But this was tough. It took me several attempts. And, then I would type in a team I hadn't previously, only to not type a team I had.

At 72% it left me a comment that said: You are so beige.
At 94% it gave me a comment that said: You are the type of person my mother wanted me to date.

100% was the same as the nicknames: Sensational! Your parents must be so darn proud of you.

As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

Is that because you were waiting to do the SEC schools last ..?

For me, some of the schools I stumbled over the most, were the recent jumps from FCS to FBS over the last few years.

Remembering Georgia State, Texas State, Old Dominion, Liberty --- then Trying to remember which team was South & Southern between South Alabama/Georgia Southern, and I kept forgetting Rice.
