    2 is also true in college. Not in the playoff sense, but still a champion.

    & 3 is debatable.

    Re: 20 reasons college football is better than the NFL

    Reading through the list, I couldn't help but notice that the SEC was mentioned or pictured in half of their examples and the Big 12 got a picture of Bevo. I know, SEC is god, but still.

    I'm also a much bigger fan of college sports. In general, fans have a vested interest in their teams, versus just living in the area that the team resides. Plus, upsets are a ton more fun.

    I just find the NFL to be less gimmicky...no polls or voting, no worries if your team drops the last game of the season to drop them from the #1 ranking...just the cream rising to the top over the course of a long season and fighting it out in the playoffs.

    AND if your team is just horrendous, have a good draft and do it better the next year. Iowa State will never be able to match Alabama but horrible NFL teams are 1 good QB from contending the next year.

    Writer is from Alabama. Iron Bowl and no mention of OSU v. Mich? Terrible bias.

    Re: 20 reasons college football is better than the NFL

    NFL is stale and boring. Bunch of cookie cutter nonsense. Only real difference between rooting for one team over another is its colors and logo.

    Re: 20 reasons college football is better than the NFL

    I think they missed (I kinda skimmed through it) one huge, important differences:
    + a way better Overtime format.
    + They really didn't mention the long-standing rivalries. I even watch Army-Navy and Harvard-Yale; over 110 years playing some of those games. Sadly, some folks don't care anymore. ISU fans don't want us playing Iowa anymore. A&M fans don't care they don't play Texas on Thanksgiving Friday.

    It's not bias. It's just that OSU-Michigan isn't even close to Iron Bowl hysteria level.

    NFL is much better, just like the players.

    Terrible bias to the SEC, that is. But still, Iron bowl doesn't do it for me even though their fans go crazy over it. "Storied Rivalries" would have been more acceptable...although those are getting fewer and fewer these days

    Re: 20 reasons college football is better than the NFL

    The on-field product of the NFL vs the on-field product in the NCAA is a huge difference. Teams and players are just plain better.

    There are some things that are still great about the college game, but a little less so each and every year. They seem pretty determined to sell off their soul completely in the next decade or two.

    I never said the champion is debatable. Honestly, though, of course it's going to be easier to determine 1 true champion out of 32 teams divided amongst 2 conferences compared to 64 divided amongst 5 conferences (not even counting those outside the power 5..).

    What I said was debatable was the claim of less cheating in the NFL.
