Should There Be College Arena Football?

Kyle Strittholt@Man0fSteel94Correspondent IMarch 13, 2009

In college, football is always a big thing. The games are intense, and really entertaining. It’s the most popular sport in college, but some may think 12 games a year are not good enough.

Once the season is over some students may go on with other sports, but the players that don’t go on to train hard to get better for the next season. Most of it weight lifting to get stronger. They may be able to do something more to improve their skills.

What if there was College Arena Football? Would football all year appeal to a lot of people?

The players would get better at perfecting their game, getting more athletic, and learning the different styles of football. It could be a tool to help the competitiveness for the NFL Draft, and further on better athletes to watch on Sundays.

With the shorter fifty-yard field, things could be a shootout like basketball games and just as unpredictable.

Since the AFL is a passing league it won’t kill the star running backs for the team. Instead it can help the quarterbacks with their accuracy with the shorter field. Having arm strength won’t help only with great accuracy can you win.

Doing this could be more advertising for the AFL and get more people interested in the different style of the sport if some athletes can’t make it in the NFL.

The only bad thing about the general idea of this is arena football will never replace football. Not with the players and not with the fans. Where it could succeed, it also could fail.

After the college basketball tournament there aren’t many sports except college baseball. If they could introduce a plan for Arena College Football this could be the big thing for the spring.
