What a Crushing Saturday

Alabama leads Auburn 24-0 and blows it (including fumbling twice in the red zone that really could have put the game away).  Oregon pulls it out after being down at halftime.  And then Boise State collapses after taking a big lead into the half, capped off by missing two late field goals of less than 30 yards. 
 
Gah.

I hate college football sooooooooooooooo much.

College football is to the NFL what comics are to video games for me.  I just don't have enough time in the day to become invested.

@NekuSakuraba: American college football.  We have a totally fucked up system for picking the championship team, and there was a chance this year that a smaller team was actually going to end up in the championship game.  But Saturday made that much more difficult. 
 
@Brendan: Just put it on in the background while you play video games.  That's how I like to watch the NFL too.

Which one don't you want to become invested in?  The college football or the NFL?  I am guessing it is the college you don't care about so much.  I am not a huge football sports fan, but I kind of know whats going on in both enough to have a conversation with most people about the teams and a few big players. 
 
Personally I still like watching college games better, the NFL is sooooo sterile and almost over-managed.
