    Pro vs College

    I am commonly asked this question by my peers and I find myself changing my anwser everytime...

    Assuming everyone here loves many sports (pro and college) and has many different teams to pull for....Which would you like to see have more success? Your pro teams? Your College teams?

    I am a Vikings/Pacers/Indians/Flyers/Cyclone fan and if I had to pick one to win the "championship" in their respected sport I would pry go with the Pacers winning the NBA championship but thats just mo because I tend to like pro sports over college sports...

    College. Not even close.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    man, that's a tough question. I've already celebrated MNC's with the Huskers and was 10 when KC won the World Series. I would probably have to go with the Chiefs getting to the Super Bowl, but don't know if that's going to happen with Carl Peterson as GM

    College, but a distant second would be to have the Cubs win a World Series. I can't even type it without giggling.

    Re: Pro vs College

    I am a college guy, but mainly because I grew up in a college town, then moved to Iowa which really has no pro sports market. IF I were to move to a bigger city, say a Chicago, I could easily see myself getting swept up in the pro sports scene...

    Pro football. College basketball.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Normally college but I was much more interested in the Colts '07 season than Iowa State. Hands down. So to me, it depends.

    That sums me up. Outside of the Cubbies, not many pro sports really catch my attention.


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

    Re: Pro vs College

    Depends on the sport and the time of year I guess. NFL over college mostly, college over NBA mostly, MLB over college 7 days a week and twice on Sunday.

    I grew up in Chicago so I love pro sports. If I had to pick two teams to win championships, it would be the Cubs followed by the Cyclones. NEXT YEAR IS HERE!
