I stick with baseball until October is over.

Pro over a slight margin (although nothing beats college atmosphere).
 
# 3 Skyboxer @ 08/26/13 02:17 PM
Pro by a long margin...

I am not a football fan at all...which puts me in the minority.

Fan of both, but college for me and its not even close.

Yeah, I stick with baseball until the bitter end. If I have to choose between the two, I'll go with college. The pro game is laced with performance drugs, no doubt. Cutting edge training and technological adavances... yeah right. No amount of free weights, shuttle run, and gatorade is going to make me look like Ray Lewis. If that was at all feasilble, you'd think some baseball players would look that way. But shockingly enough, with the enforcement of strict laws, players have slimmed back down to their early 90s counterparts. Just wait, one day, they will crackdown on the NFL, and 250 LBS line backers running 4.4/40s will be a thing of the past. I can go on about how MLB is infinately better than the NFL (namely ticket prices to get into the gate), but I won't waste my breath.

I'm pumped for both college and pro but as a student I'm excited for College football to start up again. Nothing like being in The Shoe on a saturday.

I get more excited about the college football season. It's the atmosphere and traditions I like. I like the NFL as well but college football is king for me.

Hands down college football. I love seeing the kids who will be stars on Sunday before they reach stardom, and in many cases the kids who will not go one to play pro but still leave that "remember the name" impact.

Pro is the best. But I say college personally.

Its just the freshness of it that makes it more exciting to me every year.

Exactly. That's why for me too.

Can you say Shayne Skov????

You must never have been to Lambeau Field.


Pro all day. #Rodgersforpope #HitemwithaClaymaker #APwho #NFCNorth #hashtag

I'm extremely surprised to see Pro take such a lead. College football is far above my favorite. Players are playing for something, atmosphere is unparalleled, rosters change far faster so the seasons are fresh, and nothing beats the controversy that is the BCS lol.

College Football is my favorite among all sports because of the strong emotional connections associated with the college game among the players and fans. It's much more "raw" and less business-like (compared to the NFL). The freshness of the college game is exciting to me with the yearly turnover, and it seems like there is more hope and uncertainty in CFB which leads to more suspense.

If I had to sum it up in terms of a movie, CFB is more of a thriller with frequent and strong peaks and valleys, while the NFL is a drama with less excitement.

Pro without a doubt. Techically, every team has a chance at winning the superbowl.

College. High player turnover rate. Kids leaving after one or two years. BCS, team rankings, AP poll rankings, all controversal. Too many schools, too many divisions. Lack of a true playoff system. Small schools don't have a chance at the national championship. Bowl games (i.e. "great you won the rose bowl, the orange bowl, etc, so what? What about the ultimate title in college football, the national championship?")

Where's the option for both? I would have chosen this. But since there were only two options that applied to me, I voted pro because for me there is nothing like waking up on Sundays when the 49ers play. I love it.
 
# 17 LingeringRegime @ 08/26/13 08:09 PM
Pro. Why? They crown an undisputed champion every year.

Plus, I don't give a rats *** about the voluminous bowl games that mean absolutely nothing.

When College gets their playoff system going I might start to watch.

As a Jet fan there's really not a lot to celebrate so Penn State football and college in general are my favorite!!! We Are!!!
 
# 19 BaylorBearBryant @ 08/26/13 09:31 PM
My answer is both.
 
# 20 Phobia @ 08/26/13 09:37 PM
I get where people are coming from with college and the amount of bowls while lacking a playoff system but I think the other pros out weight the cons in my opinion.
