Why I prefer pro football to college football

For the past three weeks, college football has been dominated by games in which a small school falls by 60-70 points to a massive powerhouse. Everyone knows this is going to happen, but they play anyway because it leads to a financial windfall for the smaller school.

In the pros, scores are almost always closer because there's at least some monetary parity among teams, if not parity of talent and chemistry. The difference between the AFC and NFC is one of semantics, not caste. This allows for genuine competition and an ever-present hope that "this year is our year."

And that is why I prefer pro football to college football.

One reason of many, anyway.
