No way in hell a NFL team loses to a college team. I don't care what college team it is, it won't happen.

Yeah true, I don't see it happened this year, but as you say anything can be done. I just don't see any college team being able to beat a fully professinal outfit who have been playing the game at a high level for years.

No way. Oklahoma is very good, and they will have several players on the team that are ready to go pro this year. Detroit has a team that's full of guys drafted.

Hello!?! Seriously, there is NO WAY a college team beats an NFL on any field, home, neutral, whatever. It's fun to speculate about it, but your living in a fantasy world if you think a college team would even hang with the worst of NFL teams in a game. Even a super-college-all star team with Miami-FSU-USC-Ohio St players would get crushed by an NFL squad.

Size, speed, conditioning, maturity, football IQ. You can't fake it in the NFL, you can fake it through college.

They're playing competition that's a little more difficult than the Sooners face. Oklahoma's QB is good. Very few college QB's come in and excel in the NFL immediately. Any player that comes to the NFL says that the hardest thing for them to adjust to is the speed of the game. That translates into the offensive line getting eaten up and shifty defenses being harder to read. Okalahoma may have an edge at a couple of positions, but across the depth chart, they lose. Only a few guys on the Oklahoma team will get to try out for any NFL team. The understanding of the game is different. The team as a whole has more time practicing and playing together. If you're banking on Bradford winning it for you, you would be in big trouble.

Last year's national champs, LSU, had 7 guys drafted. Their competition, Ohio State had 3. Between the two teams in that champtionship game, 10 guys were drafted by a team - any team. Of those, not all will make the teams and certainly not all could start. That puts you in a tough situation against a team full of guys that have been drafted and made the team, 22 of whom start.
