I love watching sports and cheering on my team. But my favorite sport to watch is College Football. NFL is good but college football is way better. No offense, I love NFL too â€“ the dramas, Tim Tebow, the last goal touchdowns. But NFL is just overrated. College football on the other hand is pure entertainment, raw action and traditions that you can witness unfolding right in your very eyes. Here are some more reasons why college football is way better than NFL. 1. The stadiums. Think about all the great NFL stadiums out there - Yeah a bit difficult because there are very few! The Big House, The Horseshoe, Touchdown Jesus, The Swamp, Death Valley, Beaver Stadium at Happy Valley, Rocky Top, The Rose Bowl, The Orange Bowl, etc. 2. More games. This is simple math. There are 32 NFL teams. When you count all NCAA divisions there are almost 1,000 teams! This only means more games and actions to watch. And for bettors, more games to bet on. 3. More creativity. When is the last time a Hook and Ladder play won a game in the NFL? I know it's not a weekly occurrence in the college ranks, but you get the plethora of offensive and defensive play calling in college. Coaches have more room to experiment with their athletes and their playbook. 4. More affordable and accessible. I live in Dayton, OH and I am in one of the better locations relative to NFL teams as I have the Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Detroit Lions all in under about 4 hours of driving distance. That's when I'm in the mood to fork out $75 for a ticket and $8 for a beer. Now, living in Dayton, OH - on any given Saturday I could spend less than $40 and go to any of these campuses: Michigan, Michigan State, Cincinnati, Indiana, any one of ten MAC teams, Notre Dame, Purdue,
Louisville, Kentucky, Penn State, etc. I could make that list rather lengthy if I continued. The point is, there is an abundance of college football at my fingertips for less dollar than that of the NFL. 5. The rivalries. You can't tell there are more rivalries in any other sport besides college football. Let's face it - Michigan and Ohio State might be the best rivalry that exists in all of sports. For every loss that takes place, in the back of the losing team's mind, they know that they have to wait for an entire year to avenge that loss. And it stings, pisses people off, you're walking down your street naked after losing a bet, fights break out, friends become enemies, and it goes on and on and on - for 365 days until it's time to suit up for the next game in the series. 6. EVERY game matters. You simply cannot afford to lose a single game or else your national championship hopes take a serious hit. I've seen plenty of playoff bound NFL teams sleepwalk through games. You simply will not see this type of play in the college ranks. The NBA, please, unless you are loyal to a specific team it's almost not worth watching until the playoffs start. For those of you who are thinking of college football betting, indeed I can say that college football is also better to bet on than NFL. This is because the margins of over/under is quite large and easy to bet. So that is another plus more college football. Everybody who thinks Iâ€™m wrong can message me or comment on this article.
