What, the college team is going to show up, miss 4 field goals and beat a solid canadian team?!?!?!?!?!?!

I DONT THINK SO!

What saddens me even more, is that the team that missed 4 field goals lost,
so we have an undeserving champion?

how does the number 2 team, not have a kicker???

lets face it..
college teams on paper, are pretty and exciting to watch..

HOWEVER,

Put them up against PROFESSIONALS..
And guess what happens, there weaknesses get exposed and they get their booties kicked!


Let's not forget one thing there froggy. The guys that play in the Canadian football league are there for a reason...

Remember a guy named Flutie , well he had to prove he could play at his height and stature in the CFL before an NFL team would give him a chance. And he was the BEST the Canadian league had to offer.

He did fair pretty good in the NFL when he finally arrived but he did not last long as I remember.

The point I am getting to is this, the guys that play in the CFL would be in the NFL if they were the caliber of players that exist in the best teams in the top colleges across the USA.

Players like Fairly, Suh, Newton and many others are constantly making a first year impact in the NFL. Those that don't even get drafted , and that is after many many rounds, go play in the CFL or somewhere else.

The Canadian best is maybe top college at best. Many of their players are wash outs south of the border or those players trying to extend their careers after they don't make it on an NFL team.

We both know it is all hypothetical however, because the NCAA would never allow it to happen.


LSU vs. Bama...great game!!

mtc....


ok hot shot..

if you thought saturdays night game was quality..
then you probably have attracted to fat chicks syndrome..

lets face the facts;
1. the average canadian player is probably at 20lbs heavier..
and thats 20lbs of muscle..
that means college players would get pushed off the ball..
hard to win a game when you are gettin pushed off the ball..
and lets not forget that the college team would get injuries..

2. the average canadian kicker, would have made at least 3 kicks,
that the stupid college player missed..
lets hope for your sake, the college player was bribed to miss those kicks..
even if by some miracle,, its a close game, the college team woukd lose,
cause you can not win a close game without a decent kicker..

3. the cfl is equivalent to the 2nd division..%
these guys are no slouches..
at least 75% of lsu and alabama will not make it as far as the cfl..
and lsu and alabama qbs are not exactly brady and mannings..

people who vote for you,
have attracted to fat chick syndrome..
they think college football is better than it really is!


4th time

last time I try this.

average weight for the BC LIons offensive line is 305.

The LSU Tigers is 311.

Bama Tide is 304.

So exactly where is the size advantage to the CFL.

I read that the CFL is a faster game. Bull Shirt!

You guys are not giving the college elite teams enough credit for the game they play today. IT is faster and the kids are much bigger and stronger than the Army Navy teams of 40 years pass.

Truth is, and I know it hurts all you diluted Canadian fans, today's college game is faster, and stronger than those teams you have in the CFL.

You have a handful of guys that were drafted but either got burnt out or washed out in the NFL and went to work up there trying to extend their glory days.

LSU , Alabama , OU, Oklahoma State and a couple more could beat the BC Lions. The NCAA would never allow it to happen just to prove a point but it is my opinion they could.

Here is a question. Who is Travis Lulay? All Star QB for the BC Lions. Washed out in the NFL with the Seahawks. IF you could not even make the practice squad or as third string with the Seahawks why is he so good up in Canada? Answer is simple, talent is not as good.


Theres another vital vital point I saved just for my 3rd argument..

Canadien teams are more unified..
Why?
Because they dont lose tons of key players every year..
The canadian teams get to play with each other for years and years..

Hee-Haw, I mean come on.. Do you really think alabamas offense or LSUs, would have professional players quivering in their boots..

When Ricky William played in the CFL, he wasnt knocking them dead..
Guess what canadians know how to tackle too..

The way I see the game being played..

Top canadian team wins 27-3.. And Im being kind there..
Especially if they are playing canadian rules..
college wide recievers would have a difficult time adjusting to catching the football with 2 feet in touch..

Yeah, college has better coaches, but when you are getting hammered, what good is a 10million$ coach?

Look, canadian players dont have to waste their time going to classes, and other huge time and energy requirements that college requires..
Plus the average age of a canadian player is probably around 26, a damn good age for a football player..
Not many good college players light it up in their first year in pros, there are growing pains


Forfeited Turn

I am canadian and am going to vote right unless he forfeits. Thank god CFL playoffs are here so it will be over soon. NFL NCAA Arena Europe> CFL. Hooray for getting TSN back in a couple of weeks.

November 6, 2011  11:50 AM ET

I already did this TD and lost, but you are right no college team would beat any CFL team.

November 6, 2011  12:25 PM ET

The NFL gets all of those professional players from teams like LSU and Alabama. Nobody is beating down the doors of CFL teams looking for their players. I'd take LSU or Bama over almost any CFL team out there. CFL teams are professional yes. But they are loaded with players that were NOT good enough to cut it in the NFL....thus playing in Canada. Could LSU or Bama beat an NFL team? Probably not. A CFL team though isn't anywhere near NFL caliber.

Any top 15 College football team could beat a CFL team.

Nope. this garbage was tossed around when the Lions went 0-16 and over zealous College fans were claiming the top NCAA teams cold beat them. Not even close. Canadian league is the same.

Even the BEST NCAA teams have maybe 8-10 players good enough to play professional football. Canadian teams are stocked 100% with players good enough to play professionally.

Sure, there might be a player or two on the College team that are the best players on the field overall, but team for team the Collegiate team simply couldn't match up.

The average kickers from college go to Canada.

The mediocre college players trying desperately to extend their football career, go to Canada. This isn't soccer, NFL and NCAA dominate the sport and there is no league in the world that even comes close to sniffing the talent level these 2 have.

Kicking wouldn't come into play. The Canadian team would score TD's at will.

The only major sport where a great amateur team would have a chance of beating a bad professional team is Baseball, and that's only because the amateur pitcher could have a great game. One great player can make the difference there. The other exception would be Olympic basketball, but that's because the American team doesn't play together long while the "amateur" teams play together continuously.

NCAA doesn't "dominate" the sport of football. It's very POPULAR, don't confuse that with BETTER. Just because NCAAF is hugely popular doesn't mean the teams are stacked with PROFESSIONAL quality players. They aren't. Not even the best ones.

MOST NCAA players aren't good enough to play in the Arena2 league.

wrong. the average kickers in college football become high school teachers. The mediocre college players (which is about 95% of them) aren't good enough to play in europe or the arena league, let alone CFL.

November 6, 2011  12:54 PM ET

A game between LSU and the BC Lions wouldn't even finish. the entire LSU roster of kids would get injured and they would have to forfeit.

Maybe the ones from South West Missouri state. We're talking about the elite schools.

Average kickers are more valuable if they play for a good school? Come on.

And that's only the tip of the iceberg.

Not only do proponents of the "NCAA teams are better" theory overlook the depth of a professional football roster - even the worst guys on a pro roster were good in college - they lose sight of the fact that players pack on additional muscle after leaving college, gain additional experience, and operate out of a significantly advanced playbook.

Not to mention you need to be able to throw the football to be able to match up with a Canadian football team.

This is just wrong and I will explain why in the 2nd argument....
