Friday, August 30, 2013 • by Gene Newman

What do the most die-hard college football fanatics do when they die? Keep school spirit going for eternity by being buried in a college themed casket, of course.

To kick off the season right, we’re honoring the top 10 ranked schools with their casket equivalent (which are real things you can actually buy).

1. Ohio State Buckeyes (University of Ohio)

Don’t forget to emphasize the “THE” whenever saying Ohio State. We have no idea why, but football players say it this way and it sounds cool.

2. TCU Horned Frogs (Texas Christian University)

This allows you to roll tide…literally. (Sorry about that. We’ll try to make the rest of the captions a little better. But we ain’t making any promises.)

4. Baylor Bears (Baylor University)

5. Michigan State Spartans (The University of Michigan)

The greenest casket on the list, by far. We’re not sure about the environmental impact, but these guys are green and quite sharp with embossed wings and neon rails.

6. Auburn Tigers (Auburn University)

Stanford is in California, and should not be confused with Stamford, Connecticut, which has no team. Connecticut does have UCONN, but they’d only make this list if we were including the top 8,000 ranked teams because they’re not very good.

7. Oregon Ducks (University of Oregon)

The cuddly Bulldog mascot alone might even make non-fans consider one of these caskets.

8. USC Trojans (University of Southern California)

Let the history lesson begin: The Gamecocks get their name from American Revolution war hero Thomas Sumter, who employed fierce fighting tactics against the British after they burned down his house.

9. Georgia Bulldogs (University of Georgia)

What’s an Aggie, you may ask. It’s a student at Texas A&M. It’s that simple. Moving on…

10. Florida State Seminoles (Florida State University)

Another university from South Carolina cracks the top 10. The vibrant orange and purple is sure to make any occasion festive



Bonus Team! Notre Dame Fighting Irish (University of Notre Dame)

Duke fans should order these early since your football seasons are always over before they start. The good news: March Madness is right around the corner!
