Although I find it interesting that no one has voted for the pros (as of yet).

One would think that the highest skill level of the sport would garner the most fans of the sport and have the most followers.

Interesting....

The closer in ability the competitors are, the more likely the competition will be boring. The first takedown in the 1st Gotch vs. Hackenschmidt match was at the 2 hour mark. This accounts for Pro-Wrestlings move to works, everyone knows each others moves and has counters to them, things get boring. Same thing in Pro-Football.

Actually right now High School football is the most exciting since my alma mater is in the state semis.  No, I don't still wear my letter jacket!  In fact, I only tried football as a ninth grader and wasn't very good.

I thought my lettermans jacket was lost ... little did I know my mother had saved it and given it to my wife when we got married five years ago.  granted it really hasn't been all that long since I first got the jacket (1996), but it's neat that I now have it.  what's really funny is the picture of me first wearing it.  they didn't have a size small enough to fit me and since my mother still was holding out hope I'd grow it's a large. at the time (Christmas) I received it, I weighed less than 100 lbs and was about 5 foot even.

Just the fact that there is an Iron Bowl says College is better than Pro.

Yup. Or Bedlam. No rivalries in the pros touch the NCAA.

Bedlam...the most lopsided instate "rivalry" in the FBS.

There used to be a pretty good rivalry between Nebraska and University of Colorado back in the 90's early 2000's.  Nebraska under Osbourne would try to downplay it, but I am sure it got under his skin big time the few times CU won.

It'll be the 100th meeting of my HS FB rivalry next turkey day.    We already have sponsor commitments to fund doubling bleacher seating to 15,000.  Both HSs boards have agreed to open up the gyms and cafeterias for hosting team reunions.  A couple other sponsors have agreed to fund some "scholarship" cash to help pay some travel expenses for those in need.

In Nebraska's defense...those CU fans were pretty scummy for the most part. Not the long time CU fans, but the bandwagon creeps that came out of the woodwork when CU got pretty good (early 90s).

Never met at Buffalo fan that wasn't a prick.

I liked the 1989-1995 or so teams but then gradually lost interest.  They certainly do not belong in the PAC 12

They probably belong in Mountain West or the WAC. CU sucks at pretty much everything in athletics. I can't think of anything they do well. Plus academically they are nothing special in the Pac 12. Seriously...what do they offer other than a small Colorado TV market? Nothing.

I stand corrected. It's not much though, lol.
