5 Things College Football Does Better Than The NFL

The pros aren't better at everything.


A common misconception around collegiate and professional sports is that the higher level is always superior in every facet. Sure only the best of the best are allowed into the NFL and only the elite are able to stay on rosters. But the league has it's fair share unimpressive areas where college football excels in.

College Football Coaches have a ton of Personality

There are hundreds of college football teams across the country and every coach is completely different. There are still some stern and serious football guys who can roast some journalists, but then there are guys like Mike Leach who are straight weirdos and I love it.

Every State has Multiple Teams

I bet there are tons of people across the country who are forced to root for an NFL team hundreds of miles away because their state can't have a team. But they can have a college football team to hang their hats.

New Players/Storylines Every Year

When the same NFL players stick around for 10-15 years the storyline can get stale to some. But in college, there is always the feeling of the unknown and what team will have the next break out star.

The Fans have Way More Passion

If you've ever been to a college football game you'd know. For most states college football is all they have to cheer for, not to mention the drunk student factor.

The College Football Playoff Debates

The topic lasts for months and everybody has a different take on it. Can a two-loss team be in? Who had a better resume? When will Notre Dame join a conference already? In the pros, all you need to do is win 9-11 games and you're guaranteed to be in. Boring...

So take into consideration that not everything is bigger and better in the NFL. Give College football a chance and I guarantee you will still be hooked on this sport!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
