ROLL TIDE ROLL :

Are you kidding me? No other sport on earth has the rivalries and the pagentry of college football. We have the biggest stadiums and the most loyal fans. There are no trades, no free agency and best of all no relocations... what the heck are the St. Louis Rams??
When you join a school they are your school for life. Go to any tailgate and you'll know that the best football is college football.

Plumber Bubba :

No question, the NFL. College football is good fun for smaller markets that can't net a pro football team and a good talent pool for future players, but as far as entertainment, hands down the NFL is superior.

Gavin082 :

People that went to college at a 'football school' will always say college and people who didn't will always say NFL.

Inside the alumni community, there is NOTHING like college football. Outside, it's hard to get people to care about the HUGE ramifications of Michigan State beating Ohio State...

trippin :

I find the college rivalries much more entertaining. It's the history and pageantry of it all.

It's not about the championship itself, it's about the journey to that championship, and all the various bowl games and smaller division championships too, that captivates me as a fan.

I only wish that it was less about money and more about sport for the sake of the competition. At least college ball has some of that spirit left; at times the NFL seems it's about money and only about money.

Perhaps if the pro draft system was implemented as farm clubs, schools could be rescued from this encroaching commercialism and football athletes destined never to play pro could actually get an education to boot.

But the schools could never afford it. Sigh.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Terp :

In terms of the playoffs I give the edge to the pros, in terms of thrilling endings and a fair overtime college is way better. Also college has rivalries that go back longer than NFL.

Subliminally :

NFL is just a faster game. You rarely see the "men among boys", which makes the game more exciting.

Alex35332 :

Gavin082 nailed it. Depends on what college you went for, or if you live in a college town. I will tell ya though, if the NFL ever got an AAA system it would make the college game look like a joke.

Take Me To Your Linker :

NFL FOOTBAll.

On a Sunday afternoon I expect to see NFL Football. When I tuned in today to see the Washington Redskins on FOX Sports, there was a Rodeo instead. What are they thinking? Besides that I don't want to see NASCAR being shoved down my throat. Don't get me wrong I appreciate sports cars. However, Its FOOTBALL, Stupid. Are sports turning into Hillbilly outings?

Bob Dole Likes Football :

Today was such a great day for close endings and amazing plays that it is really hard to argue against the NFL. It has the best games and the best coverage and the best post season. The only upside to college games is going to see them live. But if you are lucky enough to go to 1 of the 200 or so D1 schools chances are you will never see your team win the national championship. In NFL you have a 1 in 32 shot ever year.

Wayne :

It's kind of a retarded question, but I'll bite...

The NFL contains the most talented athletes on the planet. The fact that some idiots call Tiger Woods an athlete should insult every NFL player. They are extremely talented, and are the best of the NCAA. Both NFL and NCAA are extraordinarily exciting, and I watch both, but NCAA is a beauty contest. Let's see who walks down the runway this year...

Jimbo :

College over NFL any day. Some of the players may be bums but they're not the millionaire bums of the NFL.
