College football is good but still not close to the NFL, and I live in the town of the number 1 team in the country.
I don't know Okie. To be totally honest NCAA football is better. THere is usually more electricity in the air and the gameplay is actually faster than the NFL. The officials have started to interfere with the flow of NFL gameplay too much in the past decade, and there are too many medicore teams to justify the crazy ass salaries anymore.

^ I like College don't get me wrong and the atmosphere is great but in all honesty no one wants to watch Miami play SW Florida for the blind. In the NFL every week matters and any team can win, even the Bills. Even when I lived in the south and the saints were so bad I'd watch them over Mississippi and Miss St any day.
Living in Oklahoma I always have this argument, but the numbers don't lie and the BCS is retarded !

I love it...I really think baseball is super boring and I am not surprised in the least that a blowout game between the Tennessee Titans and the Jacksonville Jaguars beat a playoff baseball game.

Re: Lame Monday night game beats classic ALCS game in ratings

I think the BCS was created to lead to the eventual playoff. Oklahoma is a great team and definitely should be in the BCS mix, but they hopped over Oregon, which will get real college fans debating like mad. Screw TCU and Boise St. Beating on Wyoming or Idaho 56-0 doesn't tell me shit, but you will get those folks bitching also. Thing is there is just too much $$ in the bowl system to really institute one. I remember when there was just 6 bowls: Cotton, Sugar, Gator, Rose, Orange, and Tangerine. Liberty and Fiesta came later, along with the California and Holiday. Tangerine turned into the Citrus Bowl if I am not mistaken. To me about a dozen bowls is palatable, since the top 25 would be let in. Now they are talking about having a 5-7 team get in. Just stupid, but the suckers will watch.

Baseball sucks playing also. Watching it live isn't any better than if you were watching on TV. I like how the new ballparks have all those screens with ads on them all over the stadium perimeter now to keep the masses distracted as most of t he games are dull.

I think Oregon should be 1 honestly but OU has played a solid schedule and keeps winning so they r legit so far

Baseball is way better live than on tv, football is way better on tv than live. College football isnt even close to pro. College is full of mismatches and games that dont really mean anything. In the end I prefer my pros as real pros not pros disguised as amateurs.

Agreed, but football is cool live to see all the routes developing. But generally yeah, I'd prefer to watch it at home.

Probably the best live sport that doesn't translate to TV... hockey.

^ Agreed. I love hockey games in person (Hershey Bears) but I can rarely watch a whole NHL game. I can watch a late-series playoff/Cup game in its entirety, but never a regular-season game.

Re: Lame Monday night game beats classic ALCS game in ratings

I've always wondered why other sports don't make more changes to actually compete with the NFL and I guess it's because it would just piss a lot of people off.

The true fans of the sports are going to want to have all those games and believe that is the best way to know who had the best team. That also messes with the tradition of the game in regards to Hall of Fame, career points, and other things.

But, in reality, these multiple games really devalues the product. I've watched the NBA enough to know people aren't really trying in the first few quarters. They might crank it up in the 4th, but things don't really get going until the playoffs. You can't say that about football; the games are too important. If there were only 30 games, I would be way WAY more interested in following the wizards every game, since I know that each game was more important. Now, if I might watch 10 a year, but that is usually just because i see it's on t.v.

Absolutely.
