NCAA>>>>NFL in terms of pure excitement.
agreed....I was at the Rutgers game yesterday and just walking to the stadium from my car with the band marching by, pounding the drums, people were ready to jump out of their skin they were so excited....
I am a former LI er living in the south. College football rocks!!! The ACC is down a bit but living here is great. Geprgia, Georgia tech, Fla, Fla State ESPN Saturday is relevant as all of my clients friends neighbors went to one of these schools and it is bigger and better than any other sport week in week out. GO JETS!!!!!!
Are you kidding me? did you watch the UCLA vs. Tennessee game last night??? That was one exciting game. Especially in the 4th and OT. UCLA's offense for the first 3 quarters looked worse than our offense did with Pennington last year, 4 ints in the first half!! Then their QB turned it on in the 4th and looked great.
I was at the UCLA/TENN game last night wearing my UIVERSITY OF MIAMI HURRICANES jersey (#4 green Devin Hester jersey)....Big UM fan!! First half was horrible, sloppy QB play, etc...2nd half was great except for the fact I lost $220. Had $120 on the unders and $100 on Tenn -7.
UCLA game was a thriller, Michigan dumped in the big house, Pitt and Clemson exposed badly. If you didn't find anything "watchable" this weekend then you're really not a football guy but hey the Tennis was on from Flushing Meadow I'm sure you enjoyed watching that didn't you?
I can't get into college football. It's amateur sports. Consider the % of these kids that will never get drafted and how many of those kids won't ever take a snap in the NFL. The NFL is where the greatest and most talented play. The playing field is much more even sans a few teams. College football is exciting because it's so goddamn sloppy, missed tackles, blown coverage, etc. The talent level between team is so disgusting.
Living in Oregon everything is U of O or Oregon State. I've tried getting into it... it's just boring to watch IMO. Sure the stadium is full of excitement but so are soccer games in every other country. The play on the field is what makes a game interesting to me. I could get the same level of "excitement and players playing with all their heart" watching pee-wee football.
