fair enough and sorry for coming off as a richard but still not nearly enough to avoid what would be a beat-down. Even with Alabama's 8 draft-picks off last year's championship team, just 3 are starting in the NFL now, not nearly enough to have any hope of playing against an NFL team much beyond the opening kick-off.

The only way a college team would have a chance is if every starting player was an NFL caliber player and every starting player was having a heisman like season. The difference between college and the NFL is just too big. There might be some really good high school teams that could beat some D3 college teams though.
Exactly. Same with basketball too, a crappy d-3 school could get beat by a very good high school team. I go to a D-3 school, and our football team won its first game in 3 years last week, and we'd probably get beat by some of those really good high school teams in CA, TX, FL etc that have 3 or 4 division 1 players on it, especially players at the key posistions (WR, DB, QB, RB).

No, but he does know how to pound some bulldogs into the ground.

What Spurrier was trying to convey is how dominant the SEC West is from the SEC East and the rest of Division I football.

"Spurrier says Alabama can beat an NFL team".....

Spurrier's an idiot if he truly believes that.

The worst team in the NFL could destroy the best team in college by AT LEAST 5 touchdowns. This ain't 1923.

Spurrier doesn't even know what it takes to beat an NFL team... His record as a coach and player in the NFL prove that.

1% of the college football players move on to play in the NFL.

Well the Eagles could turn the ball over a million times and lose


Though honestly the level difference is way to significant

the NFL is far superior to college in this regard, no College team would beat an NFL team
