    Re: 20 reasons college football is better than the NFL

    Russillo had a good quote today on his show... You can predict most of what will happen in the NFL and NBA, no one cares about baseball, but college sports are a toss up for the most part every year and thats what makes it great.

    It kind of stinks that there is no more crystal football trophy for the champion.

    Re: 20 reasons college football is better than the NFL

    I could only think of 3 reasons why NFL is better than college, but they are big ones.

    1. Teams have equal opportunity to win.
    2. There's a champion at the end of the year.
    3. Less cheating.

    I think they replaced them with steel statue trees.

    Re: 20 reasons college football is better than the NFL

    I feel the same way about college football as some people do about their kids - I love them both equally for different reasons. The quality of play is superior in the NFL, but the unpredictability and surprise factor is better at the collegiate level.

    I disagree with Russillo as far as the predictability in the NFL (NBA yeah I can see that)...but give me the NFL 1,000 over college football. Any team has a shot to win any given Sunday (QUE Willy Beaman) which is why I can watch any NFL game. College sports in general are just the appetizer for me...I'd much rather watch the best of the best in the NFL/NBA over a college game.

    Re: 20 reasons college football is better than the NFL

    The surprise factor is there for college football, but not really part of the big picture, since it really is the same teams winning the championships over and over and over.

    Since 1950, only 27 teams have won the national title, counting the years with split championships. It's not really that unpredictable overall.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
