We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

I for one do not enjoy watching teams score a combined 240 points in regulation. It means no one is playing defense.
college players are flying down the court and diving for loose balls. I see none of that in the pros.
No defense?? That is the worst arguement I have ever heard, your assumption that the NBA doesn't play defense is 100% false. When you watch college ball you have guys that can't shoot if their life depended on it and can barely control a basketball so it's not good defense it's horrible offense. For example your boys Adam Morrison, Luke Walton, and Jimmer Fredette dominated the college game yet can't sniff a NBA court..
You've obviously never watched the NBA, b/c KG cares more about bball than any college player will ever. HIs exact quote is that he would die on a bball court..
Please watch an NBA game. Every time a player drives to the lane to try for a lay up there is little to no resistance.
Like I said, the quality of TALENT is better in the NBA, and that is why players like Fredette can't get on the court. But I'd rather watch basketball when players are playing for the love of the game, not money. The passion the players play with in college, the NBA cannot match.
No player on Michigan can even compare to the amount of love of bball that KG and Kobe have. Their intensity is 100xx greater than any college player. I watched the Heat and BUlls game last week and every basket was contested and it was like a street fight getting to the basket. Do you even watch the NBA or just make illogical statements?
Like watching a brick fest.. Talent is no match.. 2nd rate ball.
I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
Watch the playoffs.
Only reason that game was hype was because the Bulls ended the streak. Just watching normal games where nothing is really on the line are incredibly boring to watch.
I am not making illogical statements. The majority agrees with me.
I do every year, it doesn't compare to March.
Thanks for giving me one example. The majority of guys look like they couldn't care less during the regular season.
Are the playoffs the majority of the season? No.
Yea they are to be honest.. Playoffs last 3 months.
Which will be the game of the year and nothing will compare to it.
Kobe Bryant, Lebron JAmes, Dwayne Wade, Russ Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Do you honestly want me to name like every player who cares about bball?
The NBA Finals?? The Conference Finals.. The entire playoffs.. So much wonderful pro basketball around the corner.. CAN NOT WAIT..
I've watched every Celtic game and they're 100x better than any college game I've watched all year. Did you see how pathetic that Indiana vs. Syracuse game and Syracuse vs. Marquette games were? Teams couldn't make a shot if their life depended on it..
5 months of regular season > 3 months of playoffs
Lower scoring has a lot more to do with 35 second shot clock which sets a slower pace. Needs to be changed to at least 30 IMO. But there's plenty of things that need to be changed in the NBA too. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing on which is better as it is 100% a matter of opinion. I think they both have can be great in their own right. I just think the argument that it's better because the overall talent level is better is, while obvious, not transparent. Because personally, while I love the NBA, if I were to choose between a college game or NBA game in which I have no dog in the fight, I'm gonna pick college.
YOu list no examples and have no empirical data to back up your statements you speak in generalities..
Out of how many total players in the nba?
No they don't bro, THe NBA finals last year destroys any college basketball games ratings...
Our Celtics are currently trotting out Jordan Crawford as a starter and guys like Shavlik Randolph and DJ White off the bench. I wouldn't be so sure about that.
this ^^^^ for um wolverines..
You take the random 6pm Creighton v Gonzaga... I'll take Heatles all day and twice on Sunday.. I couldnt even watch the tourney.. Insomnia meds.. In one word... #BRICK...
