I've definitely seen better games in high school than the pros. Love those big bands and young cheerleaders.:lol:

The NFL is better because the athletes are of higher quality, the competition is higher as a result, and nothing beats the Super Bowl in terms of sporting events in this country. No denying that. You can argue college football has just as good, if not better, rivalries and history, but that doesn't make it better. There are plenty of rivalries in minor leagues, doesn't make them better than the bigs. Now, if the question is what do you enjoy more, I totally understand why some prefer college (I myself prefer college over NBA), but the NBA is better. Bigger stage, better competition, better players.

I like college football (not love, the whole BCS thing...), but it's still a step below the NFL and always will be.

No comments on OT rules? or defensive pass interference? I was sure these two items would litter this thread !

I'm a much bigger fan of the NFL, regardless of a couple rule changes that may improve the game. The NFL is the best run league in sports. The competitiveness is unparallelled. Parody.

Well, the overtime rules in college are lame, and as for defensive pass interference, you could "split the difference" by capping the penalty for non-flagrant pass interference at half the distance to the goal (e.g., if the previous spot was mid-field, the ball is placed on the 25-yard line). And to prevent the defense from "buying" time with a deliberate foul, if it occurs within the last two minutes of either half or overtime, the clock is reset to where it was before the snap, and not restarted until the ball is snapped again, even if the clock had been running before the original snap.
