As I'm driving home last Friday night, I've got ESPN Radio on and the extremely average Freddie Coleman is blabbing about football. But then he approached a topic that really got me thinking. And thus, I'm going to rip it off and use it for today's post as I'm sort of interested in everyone's opinion anyway.
What would you rather watch: a huge college football game or a huge NFL game?
Opinions on the radio show were skewed a bit toward the pro game but I want to throw in a few caveats before you all answer. Don't take into account bowl games or playoff games or conference championship games or the Super Bowl--none of that. I think that most of us would agree that the NFL playoffs are far superior to the bowl season so let's throw that out the proverbial window.
Time for today's word problem: Let's say, for some strange reason, the NFL scheduled Dallas at Indianapolis on a Saturday night in mid-October (on Fox) which would go head-to-head with...oh...Florida at Oklahoma (on ABC). All four of these teams are top 5 caliber teams in their respective sports. What are you watching? You can only watch one. There is no flipping back and forth. The ratings would almost definitely be in Fox's favor, but what do YOU prefer?.
I purposely avoided Ohio State/Michigan because that would cloud most of your judgments so don't even bother mentioning them in the comments.
Personally, and you already know this if you've been reading my daily beauties for awhile, I'm watching the NFL game. Like it or not, the NFL is built on stars and I'm a total homo when it comes to superstars. The college game is based more on schemes and coaching and it's fine, but it's an inferior product to it's professional counterpart (because we're watching it on TV and not going to the game itself). But then again, I hate the spread offense. How could anyone pass up on watching Peyton Manning embarrass the shit out of Tony Romo?
Now if the question was, "Which game would you rather attend?", I'm picking the college game 9 times out of ten. I don't want to spend three+ hours surrounding by Cowboys and Colts fans though. But that isn't something that I care about today.
So where do you stand? What are you watching? Will I ever try to write something decent here again? Was there anything more disappointing than finding out the identity of "Shook's Son"?
