SoSportz.com- After watching games after games for all of these years, I asked myself, are college sports more exciting than professional sports?
In college sports you have 18-22 year old athletes playing their heart out mainly for the love of the game (some play to go pro) and to win. The game seems faster, the crowd seems to be in it more, and the athletes show so much passion.
In pro sports you have athletes who are living the dream of playing at the highest level. You have some who play with a burning passion and you have some who are playing for the "Check". Sometimes the game seems slow until it's playoff time and sometimes it's very exciting. It's very up and down and you never know what you are going to get night in and night out.
When it comes to the fans, college by far is more exciting. Fans feel more connected because they actually went to school there and have some type of loyalty to that program. You have the school song, different chants that are being said throughout the game, and you have a younger crowd with a lot more energy. In the pros you have a lot of bandwagon fans. They might be a Cowboys fan today and a Patriots fan the next day.
When it's all said and done, college sports are more exciting than pros all around. This is just my opinion. What do you think?
SoSportz.com- New York Giants cornerback Michael Coe is done for the season after re-injuring his shoulder against the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday Night Football. Coe is an underrated corner who has played mostly special teams during his five year career. The Giants have been hit hard with injuries in their secondary with Terrell Thomas, Justin Tyron, Bruce Johnson, and now Coe all on injured reserve. The G-Men took a tough loss in Week 11, 17-10, to the Eagles. With a record of 6-4, the Giants have a tough schedule remaining facing the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, and the New York Jets. Can the Giants make the playoffs? It's an uphill battle but they have the ability to do so.
