College Football Will Become Much More Popular with No 2011-12 NFL Season

Unfamiliar LuminaryContributor IIJuly 7, 2011

College Football has an extremely large fan base, particularly in the South. However, it lacks the nationwide attention that the National Football League receives mostly because of the current postseason formula, which does not include a real playoff system.

However, if the NFL lockout lasts the entirety of the 2011-12 season, college football will become more popular than ever before. NFL fans all over will be craving to watch some kind of football.

If this does indeed occur, then maybe a playoff system in college football would be considered more seriously.

A larger fan base may be exactly what college football needs to have a playoff system put in place. With more fans, there would be a lot more pressure to maintain the popularity of the league.

At the end of the day, money is all that matters.

Having all of these separate bowl games creates a larger net gain for all of college football, as well as each individual college that reaches the so-called playoffs (which includes one bowl game for the top two teams selected by the BCS computers).

Practically every sports fan is praying for an NFL season to occur. But if the lockout does not end in time, fans of the professional ranks will immediately fall in love with the college game and quickly pick a favorite school to start rooting for.
