Yankees’ Mark Teixeira has a weird college football question

The New York Yankees’ Mark Teixeira, aside from being the first baseman for probably the most famous team in all of sports, is also generally a noted, die-hard college football fan. You can regularly see him on twitter giving his opinions on his happenings within the sport, and sometimes the NFL as well. But college football is definitely something that peaks his interest.

But, while he might be a fan of the action on the field, I have to question after today whether or not he completely understands how the sport works as it pertains to teams that have a shot at receiving the crystal ball come early January.

Teixeira played his collegiate baseball at Georgia Tech, one of the teams in the preseason favored to make a run in the ACC. So, naturally, the baseball star would have a majority of his stock invested into his alma mater.

After the Yellow Jackets’ loss to BYU yesterday, dropping the team to 3-3 (2-2 in the ACC), prospects for this season are not looking good.

Still though, with all of that factoring in to a sport where you virtually can’t lose a game in order to win a national championship, Teixeira still asked his fans whether or not his team still had a shot at a national championship.

Not the ACC title, but a NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP:

Unless he’s being wildly sarcastic, I don’t think he gets how it works.
