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.

The way you replied kind of showed that you were disagreeing with him. Kind of confused me too because both of you said that there is no way in hell that an NFL team can lose to a NCAA team. Just funny.

The Hello!?! was directed at the rest of the posters. It took 20+ posts before someone pointed out that there is no way in hell a college team would beat an NFL team.

i think something that is being overlooked here is team continuity (which obviously oklahoma has) and detroit has NEVER had. at least since 1959...even with barry sanders they had problems in the locker room. that's why he retired early.

i think the sooners play as One unit where the Lions play all scattered. I think that is a factor as is team morale.

There has been much speculation over very similar match-ups for much of the history of the game.

I think that the best way to make the Detroit Lions look like an all-star club would be to match them against any college team or even the All-America team.

This argument has actually been settled before and I think that the same holds true today. Take a gander...

Continuity and morale might dip a bit when the line on each side started getting dominated by better players.

Duly noted. However, those posts are a little too soft. It wouldn't even be a contest and those posts suggest the Lions would "knock off" Oklahoma, or OU could possibly win on their home field. Phrases like "no way in hell" and "ass kicking" or "OU would get f---ed up" are more realistic.

maybe the Detroit Lions should play (and beat) the Texas Longhorns.

That would give them a win over Texas and they would accomplish something the Oklahoma Sooners were unable to

I was just trying to give the doubters a visual image of this thing. I should have just came out and said that Detroit would score score three touchdowns per quarter when playing an average game and OU would only get 5 first downs max. The score would be 86 (12 TDs + safety) to 0 and that's Detroit's average game. I would think that's an a** kicking.
