Actually reside in TX these days where there aren't many who appreciate the SEC. Enjoy your time in Athens; it's a great place to go to school and experience college years.
Btw, as a car enthusiast, if you've not already done so, you definitely need to take the time to get over to Road Atlanta and take in some races, BMWCCA driving events, etc. as it's only about an hour's drive from Athens. There's also a great BBQ dive just down the road from the track in Gainesville that's worthy of the trip alone.
