I guess I just should have asked which do you think is better or which do you like better and why? Which one do you get more excited for? For example, would you rather watch an LSU vs. Alabama game or a Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers game? It probably depends on where you live. I live in a city where NFL football seems to be more popular than college football. However, I would probably choose college football over the NFL most of the time.

No NCAA major college football playoff = boring, pointless late season games.

NFL football playoffs = incredible excitement and anticipation for the next round leading to the Superbowl!

No comparison.

College sports all the way. Players who actually try to win, knowing by playing their hardest they have a chance at the next level. Once at the next level, i.e. the NFL, NBA, MLB, etc, players stop playing until playoffs and even then not all play their hardest as they know they get paid either way (NHL is the exception). This is reason alone is why College Sports trumph Pro Sports IMO.

I would rather watch the SEC game. I like college football more than the NFL anyway so I always watch more college football games than NFL games. To me, college football has a more interesting atmosphere (the traditions, the rivalries, marching bands, etc.) I usually watch Big 12 games as a priority (Texas Tech fan), and then SEC games when an interesting Big 12 matchup isn't on. In the NFL, I typically only watch Dallas Cowboys games during the regular season. However, during the playoffs I try to watch all the games.

NFL is higher quality football so it's hard to argue against that on those lines.

But the rivalries, atmosphere and sheer number of teams is what makes college football interesting for me.

Regardless what our own personal biasness is... the NFL ratings trump the SEC ratings by FAR so I think its safe to say the NFL is more special to the masses. CDF is bubble... I dont think you will get an accurate assessment by asking in this forum.
