- Sometimes, you can’t hide from a product. That happened last week with the sweaters you see above. First, my bud Ryan at Bows & Boats wrote about ’em. The next day, a friend snapped a shot of one at our alma mater’s bookstore and sent it my way. And then I spotted one in the crowd at ESPN’s College GameDay this weekend. These sweaters are popping up everywhere for good reason: They’re awesome. A bit preppy for some folks’ taste, no doubt, but still an elevated alternative to ubiquitous alumni polos and quarter-zips for those looking to stand out || Hillflint: Collegiate Sweaters
- Nothing goes together like college and beer. And these new ceramic growlers—available in both muted and eye-popping colors—are a great way to get your favorite craft suds to your bowl game watch party || Huckberry: Orange Vessel Ceramic Growlers
- If the sweaters above don’t do it for you, these T-shirts will. I might be heading up to see Notre Dame take on Stanford in a couple weeks and the only reason I won’t be wearing this is because my wife put a moratorium on my purchasing of heather gray T-shirts. I’ve got a slight problem || Tailgate Clothing: The Collegiate Collection
- There is a lot of lowest common denominator sports writing out there in the world of college football and it can often feel like there’s no alternative. But features like this one—produced by SI’s new The-MMQB-For-College-Football team—are a good reminder that quality storytelling still exists || Sports Illustrated: Campus Rush
