I Like College Football More Than Pro Football Now 

Post#1 » by Bulltalk » Wed Feb 7, 2018 3:05 am

In the longer years of my life, I've always preferred pro football over college football. But over the last 3 or 4 years or so, that began to change. I now prefer college football over pro football. I'm much more inclined now to watch a college football game that doesn't have my favorite team in it than a pro game that doesn't. This began to change in recent years, but now it's overwhelmingly that way. I'm not entirely sure why this is.

I think the last thing that would seal the deal would be an 8 team playoff for college. All big 5 conference winners need to be in. That's the only way to completely legitimize the winning of a conference championship. The CFP selection committee needs to be taken out of the equation in this regard. The CFP committee needs to be reduced to selecting the remaining 3 wild card teams, and seeding the playoff picture. When making it an 8 team college football playoff, you simply now make 7 bowl games part of the CFP, Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, Peach Bowl, Citrus Bowl, or something like that.

Lastly they need to more solidify the power 5 conferences, and by that I mean the Big Eight. That conference needs to add a few more teams so that they can have a split conference championship like the other four. It shouldn't be too difficult to get those last two teams knowing the new playoff schedule. How about BYU and Notre Dame? Yeah, I know it won't hapen because that arrogant ND thing.

Also, you could also make it slightly more interesting for the non power conferences by saying that one of the three wild card teams would come from the highest ranked non power conference team. That would give such conferences something more to play for.

But these are quibbles. I just think the college game more exciting now than the pro game. Not entirely sure why. Just do.

I always have :D. Can't disagree.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

I agree with you. Because of the no huddle teams the game plays a lot faster. I don't mean in time of game but rather the amount of time there is action. It is a much more enjoyable watch IMO.
