2. Game recap articles - We have some giant news sites and some newspapers who are better at this stuff.
3. Articles by people who never leave comments or answer comments- I guess we should be honored to read your drivel.
4. Articles people leave links to on my wall-If you haven't commented on one of my articles recently seriously don't waste your time.
5. People who advertise their articles in comment sections of other people's articles- This is SPAM as far as I'm concerned.

Ten Reasons College Football Is Better Than Pro Football
1. Clock stops after a first down-The way God intended it to be.
2. The players always try-You never hear about a college player taking plays off.

4. Marching bands-Music, but much less dancing.
5. The Option-While we're at it, who doesn't love the toss sweep?
6. Comebacks-You never see comebacks in the NFL like you see in college football.
7. Conference play-One game against each other one time a year for all the marbles.
8. 120 teams vs. 32 teams-More teams equal more games. Simple math really.
9. Coaching stability-How many coaches last more than a few years with an NFL team?
