Default College Vs. Pro Sports?

I personally am not a huge fan of college sports, but everyone in my office loves them and despises professional. Just wanting a take on other peoples opinions.

College is better, but not by much. I like the atmoshphere in college athletics, and really these kids are playing for their scholarships and what not. But i am a big fan of professional sports as well. Other than the NBA, i cannot watch it i just get the feeling that no one cares.

It a lot of sports I prefer pro. But in the case of the NBA, it looks like a men's league compared to Collegiate Basketball.

I agree with the size and what not of the players, but the excitment and effort put forward by the players is so much more. NBA i feel like nobody really cares on the court. They show up and leave, no passion.

College football is way better than NFL. You get to see players who love the game, instead of loving money. Each team has deep rooted traditions and rivalries.

NBA is better than college basketball though. NCAA has like 8 million teams, 25 divisions, and is basically high school basketball with better jersies.

You must not be an actual basketball fan. Because if you watch the different between NCAA and the NBA, the NBA is a disgrace. It looks like a couple guys scrimmaging. In College, these kids are fighting. This is for a lot of them their last step before the highest level of basketball they've been dreaming about their whole lives. They bust their asses to say the least.

I'm not a basketball fan per say, but I do watch it. NCAA is the minors. Anyone can make the team, seriously, anyone. NBA has real athletes who can play the game and dominate. I see NCAA as more of a team sport. Let's work together and score some lay-ups and not hurt anyone's feelings. NBA is much more entertaining as well. Guys like Iverson and Artest are disgraces to the sport, but for every disgrace there is a dozen Steve Nash's or Tim Duncan's who bust their ass for the love of the game.

Im just gonna have to agree to disagree cause I feel really strongly against what you've said. Not anyone can make the teams in NCAA. The NCAA, is the NBA of Post secondary basketball. As for the not hurt anyone's feelings...thats more the NBA. College kids love the sport so much and they would love to embarrass all the teams they come across. Im gonna leave my argument there because I dont want this to be us arguing about our opinions. If you like the NBA more, Godspeed.

College sports have more heart & community....their players choose to go there. Pros are picked by the teams...the community thing isn't there.

I truly enjoy professional sports much more than college, although it's close with the NBA, and NCAA.
College baseball equals- I don't know why, but it's just not good
I vowed to quit watching football altogether.

I disagree with several posts on here by Oojay and LesPaul43. Oojay, why do you automatically think that just because the NFL players make a ton of money means that that's all they're playing for? I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but all those other college players would be in the NFL, if only they were good enough.
When people think that all professional athletes are money hungry jerks, they seem to have forgotten that with very few exceptions, they were all in college, too. The Pros are just gathering all of the very best of those same college players, and putting them in a more competitive, more talented league. I don't see why people have a problem with that.
LesPaul43, I also have to disagree with you, because, while NCAA is generally more up-tempo, and exciting right now, the NBA really picks up energy around playoff time. In fact, I hate to say it, but a lot of teams are just coasting along, and storing up energy for their playoff runs. However, I do think that the vast majority of all pros absolutely love what they do, and would still be doing it if they were making around 40k per year.
