    College ball is poorly executed. I’ll grant you it has pageantry, but the level of play is painful to watch at times.

    No they wouldn’t. There isn’t a college team out there that could even be on the same field as the worst NFL team. NFL teams are comprised of the very best 2% of all college players. The Giants were bad because they were playing against better NFL teams, they would destroy Clemson.

    At times......but football is really just a bunch of big guys pushing another bunch of slightly smaller guys down the field in hopes of scoring.
    If you've ever been on a field during a game....it's sometimes pretty chaotic. For some reason....my opponents loved stepping on my feet with their cleats. When I got a handoff from the QB there was never a hole to run thru. Most of the time the play doesn't go as designed.....blockers simply get in the way of the defense and the RB has to be fast enough to keep from being killed. If I saw a hole a foot wide I was going to thru that sucker like light-speed and an arm tackle wasn't going to stop me.

    In the pros....the running game is secondary. You have to be able to pass. Just running the ball is mostly impossible.

    So you have to execute passes......which most college QBs can't do. They used to always do option plays. The option offense can kill a Defense that can't run. Pros are too fast for the option to work.

    Option offenses are boring to watch. If I’m a defensive coordinator against an option scheme, I’m blitzing every down & smacking the QB each time.

    They'd end up delaying a receiver. The screen will kill a blitzing defense.

    Some did. 4 teams got waxed by smaller teams. But Auburn beat a higher ranked team. Alabama, Texas A&M, Florida, Georgia, LSU, and MS State all won their games.

    One thing that makes sports interesting to watch is to have a vested interest in who wins. i usually don't give a shit who wins in pro football.

    Agreed. And the players have more enthusiasm, for the most part. Most of them will never play in the pros. Those who will are still trying to make their name.
