NFL. College is a popularity contest where good teams play creampuffs so they can beat them 66-0 and pad their stats. Boooooring....... Until Div. I college teams have a playoff system and play worthy opponents, the NFL will always be better to watch.

Good times...
How invested in the game can you be if you started drinking at 6 am? By the time the game starts, they could probably have been playing tiddly winks on the field for all the students know.

That's another reason I hate Penn State football....they have the most annoying student section full of drunks anywhere. At last years Penn State-Notre Dame game, they all heckled and gave the finger to ND's band...they yelled "f--k the Irish" during the game, etc. Penn State fans are probably the most annoying anywhere, especially the students, who are more concerned with getting drunk and acting like a$$es than they are in the game. Most of them probably don't know a first down from a home run.

this happens like 1 week during the year. most of the time you have the florida vs. georgia games, or the michigan vs. ohio state, or other rivalries. they play a cream puff once or twice a season. it you are in the NFC west, you play cream puffs 8 times a season. the NFL blows.

College football is where scrubs get by on playing bigger scrubs, making them look like stars in the process. Brand name schools pad their stats on little universities that created a football program solely to suck in money for losing big. It's a horrible system and a farce in terms of quality.

The NFL is far and away the most entertaining football. You have the best of the best playing every game. Everyone on the field can make spectacular plays, not just a handful on every team like the college game.

I have to go with the NFL because everybody has a chance at the championship. Although I like the loud crowds, excitement and upsets that the college game brings I still can accept the fact that the BCS system only realistically allows 10 teams the opportunity to be National Champs, where as In the NFL different teams are good every year.

When you get right down to it, college football is a joke, with "scholarships" given out to basically semi-professional athletes pretending to be students, all for the greater glory of the school's alumni associations. Yes, once upon a time--you have to go back to the 1920s and 30s--it was a sport. Not any more. You want football, you go with the NFL.

College football by a country mile, particularly the SEC. NFL bores me for the most part. NFL "rivalries" are so phony and commerical. I'd rather watch Alabama-Auburn, Auburn-LSU, Georgia-Florida, etc. than any pro crap.

How can a NFL rivalry like Bears / Packers be phony?
