College Football. I went to a Big Ten school, and I'd wouldn't trade it for the world (well, maybe except for the SEC ). Just waking up in the mornings (the earliest I got up to drink was 6am!), rooting for your school, the atmosphere with everyone dressed in team colors, yelling, invested in the game. Man, I miss it! Good times...

The NFL is predetermined this year - the Pats will steamroll their competition and win the Superbowl. There is no tension at all. At least for this season, the NFL is far inferior to college football.

I love both but I think college football is better. The history, the tradition, the 100,000+ packed stadiums, the rivalries, the memorable fight songs (think Notre Dame, Michigan, etc.), the weekly arguing among fans of who should be #1, #2, etc., the day-long festivities in any college hometown...college football is hard to beat.

I've never felt inclined to experience the hassle of attending a pro football game in person, while I've attended quite a few major college games in person and tremendously enjoyed the experience.

Until the playoffs start I find it extremely difficult to watch a pro game from start to finish. M*A*S*H re-runs are usually more entertaining. Once the playoffs start I'm completely addicted.

Ocassionally, I can watch a regular season college game on TV from start to finish, depending on the teams involved. Except for the national championship game, the bowl games don't begin to compare with pro football playoff games.

College football, it's not even close. It's so much more exciting because the kids are playing for something. Once you make the NFL it seems like many pro's just lose the passion and are going thru the motions.

Upsets and trick plays are why college football is more exciting and a better atmosphere.

I prefer to watch the pros generally, but I do like the college systerm for dealing with overtime. The college system allows both teams a reasonable chance of winning by actually being the better team. With the sudden death arrangement in the pros, it's too much a matter of chance. It's not guaranteed, but it seems that a team that makes a focused effort on scoring once, any kind of score, any number of points, has a good chance of getting to within field goal range. All too often, it's a matter of who wins the overtime coin toss.

CFB.. NFL is great for a fantasy league.. but college football generally produces more passion for a team.

Also.. where else can you get Appy State beating Michigan..
