man these games are a complete bore they have to change the rules these games now go slower then the last 2 mins of a NBA game

Wish they would just adapt all the NFL rules the NFL would love it, the TV stations would love it, the players would love it, hell everyone would, these games are unwatchable unless you have a interest in one of the teams playing

I am with you Huge!!

To me, there is nothing in this world comparable to college football. I mainly watch the Texans in the NFL...but I can watch ANYONE play college football. There is just something special about it! I pray it NEVER becomes like the pros!

College football is great the way it is! I caught the second 1/2 of the miami game and then watched the bsu-osu game...plenty of excitement. Like LHB, I enjoy watching ANY college football game.

Hallelujah, sister!

The NFL is a business. All the players are financially secure and some are obscenely overpaid. Players switch teams (and loyalties) when bigger money beckons. The fans are, for the most part, made hardened and cynical by the avariciousness of it all.

In college the vast majority of the players are struggling financially, some are walk-ons without even a scholarship. Most of them are aware that they'd better get their degree because the odds are they won't make it to the NFL. They play for their school and their fans and they play their hearts out.

I love game day in Fresno, joining the tens of thousands clogging Bulldog Lane in our red shirts and hats, working our way to Jim Sweeney Field past the tailgaters - it's about more than the game; it's about the community coming together to cheer for OUR team. The atmosphere is electric.

The NFL games I've been to have never matched that type of warm intensity. To be sure, that's where you'll find football played at its highest level and the intensity is there, but it's a cold intensity that can never, for myself at least, match the aura of college football.

I like watching college football too, but I didn't use to like it that much a few years ago. However, I've seen some pretty ugly college games already this weekend and this week in general. For example, the Nebraska vs. S.Mississippi game was horrible to watch with one turnover after the other over and over again. Right now I'm watching the Colorado and Washington State and that game isn't pretty either. Miami and Florida State was really ugly in the beginning but got really good towards the end and I enjoyed the end of the game. In general, the start of the college football season has been marred by mistakes by teams, they just don't seem focused and ready to go. Maybe it's just that most of these games are the first games of the season for teams and they are not fully ready to go yet. I'll keep watching though..I feel sorry for the UH vs. Oklahoma that should be a massive slaughter...sheesh..good luck!

As guy who loves football, there were some brutal games on television yeasterday, so if that inspired the list then I understand.

some the things that you hate are things that i like, but that comes to person preference so i am not going to pick that post apart.

BTW, the no team you care about is the biggest hurdle to you enjoying college football.

I am with Kimberly on this one. I hope this was just a bad day with my Cornhuskers or it is going to be a very long season.
