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..
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!!

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!

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..
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
