FFS LSU and Alabama can barely score against college defenses, why the hell would you think they can put up "serious points" on an NFL defense?

Grand_Moff_Joseph: Frankly, the very worst teams in the NFL would have to actually try in order to beat the top teams in the SEC.

Sure, the physical size of the NFL players would carry the day, but LSU/Bama could at least put some serious points on the board first.


No they couldn't

From 1934-1976 (so, up through Super Bowl X), your theory was actually tested in a sense, with the Chicago College All-Star Game. The reigning NFL champions were pitted against a team of college all-stars every year at Soldier Field. The NFL won 31 games, the college all-stars won 9 games, and there were two ties in 1934 and 1936.

Six of the college wins came in 1950 or before, but as the level of pro football got better, the games got more slanted in favor of the pros. The last college win was in 1963. Super Bowl I was 1967. With the exception of that last win, a 20-17 victory over the Packers, the games after the second-to-last college win were an increasingly laughable exercise. The last game was called with 1:22 left in the third quarter due to heavy rain, with the Steelers up 24-0 on the all-stars.

That ended 37 years ago. Imagine what the gap is now.

No shiat! I'm putting every dime I have on the Jags.


This could be the only time anyone says this this year without sarcasm/irony.

IAmRight: HeadLever: What I like is with the new playoff system, they will have to prove it.

Really hope it will expand to 8 teams, though.

It'll be nice as long as they don't try to shove 4 SEC teams into each playoff.


Once we get the real playoffs of only conference champs competing that won't be a problem.

Oh man. These crack me up. NFL teams are filled to the brim with bigger, stronger, faster, and more experienced men who were drafted primarily in rounds 1-5. The average SEC team has Smaller, weaker, slower boys, of whom MAYBE 15 will GET drafted. This is such a silly talking point. If the lowly 0-16 Lions played the top 16 college teams, they would be 16-0 with insulting point differentials. This is not an actual debate.

MugzyBrown: My prediction for random low-level NFL vs Alabama, assuming both teams playing with full motivations:

NFL - 31
'Bama- 10


I think your spread is too low.

Just when you think some troll bait headline couldn't make a thread any more stupid, you get the "SEC vs. NFL" brand of idiocy.

At least THE OSU is catching up to the SEC in NCAA violations.

Was not aware that Alabama had 12+ teams in the SEC.

Subby fail = fifteen yards for unintelligent-like conduct.
