>>64854754 NFL is above college for playing, but not above college for coaching. Top college coaches make more than NFL coaches and have far better job security. Some might argue that the top college posts are better than most NFL posts
>>64854754 saben quit when his gm didn't get him dru brees, I think if someone offers him a chip kelly deal where he can gm as well as coach he goes back to the nfl, the eagles would be a good fit since they just got rid of chip imo
>>64860905 why is that? Big time colleges are higher paying jobs that are a lot comfier.
it's really 2 different skill sets. College coaches have to recruit, develop talent, and be good politicians. NFL are Xs and Os guys that need to be motivators. NFL is more competitive, but being a good NFL coach doesn't mean you'd be a great college coach, and obviously vice versa.
The difference in coaching college vs NFL is the general manager.
In college, you are pretty much God. You recruit who you want, hire who you want, and run whatever systems you want. As long as you win, you're good.
In the NFL, 99% of the head coaches are under the mercy of whatever chucklefuck is the GM. There are some good ones, but there are a ton of shitty GMs. Rick Smith in Houston, Ryan Grigson in Indy, Mike Tannenbaum in Miami (may as well be), Trent Baalke in San Fran, so on and so forth.
The GM is rarely ever the one to pay for bad seasons. Jerry Reese is still sitting pretty in NY, Rick Smith survived 2-14 in Houston, etc. Why? They can, and will throw the HC under the bus at the first opportunity.
>>64854754 The NFL is a completely different beast. In College you go out and recruit players you want. In the NFL, the GM usually makes the personnel choices. In the NFL you have a much longer season, you have to deal with training camp, players who hold out, free agency, etc. NFL coaches don't have as much power over their players. Also you can control who you play in your season. What would happen if Alabama did not get to choose who it played each year. I mean that plus you have to play your division rivals twice a year. You have to get a good enough record to get into the playoffs and then you have to play at least 3 games to win the Super Bowl assuming you win a number 1 or 2 seed. You have 4 four preseason games, a 16 game regular season, and if you're lucky to make the playoffs you have an additional 3-4 games to win. Alabama played a total of 15 games to win the title. Compare that to a total of 19-20 games, and remember that Alabama got a month to rest between the SEC Championship and their first CFP game. It's just a hell of a lot easier to coach in college than the NFL.
>>64861958 I don't like the NFL or NCAA football but the bar is much lower for ''innovation'' in the college ranks. it's a bunch of talentless teenagers rutting around and occasionally getting walloped by a good program, the media just focuses on the fifteen or so good programs that make the whole charade look competitive and exciting. College football is trash, for trash. The coaches are all good-ol-boys who are sitting pretty starring at co-ed asses and being rich as fuck on a 30-hour work week. They literally can't cut it in the NFL, meanwhile I bet guys like Belicheck could run 4-5 college football programs at once.
>>64861958 >Thinking wildcat formations and spread offenses are innovative.
THE CFP is basically rigged by ESPN to get as many SEC teams in the playoffs as possible. Also I'm more of a Rugby fan than a football fan. I prefer sports where players play longer than 10 minutes in a game without getting tired.
>>64862792 Dying? American Football is actually becoming more and more popular, even among foreigners, and it's now even beating out baseball for Americas pastime, I couldn't say this ten years ago, that's for sure.
>>64863429 People come from all over Europe for it in fairness, particularly Germany I believe. There are a lot of people who'll go to one out of curiosity not knowing much about the sport prior, never go again or watch outside of maybe the first half of the Super Bowl since the 2nd half only starts at like 3am here.
Still, definitely couldn't have gotten these kinds of crowds 10 years ago for sure, and whilst I don't think American football could ever get past being our 4th biggest sport I think if we had an NFL team it would easily sell out Wembley for 8 games a year. Crazy times.
>>64863640 College football is more rigged than the NFL though. Or are you telling me the BCS system is fair and balanced? I honestly don't believe a human could be so retarded. Saban is obviously abusing the MUH SEC meme to guarantee a playoff birth every season. He doesn't give a shit about all the universities who will never get a fair chance and he certainly doesn't mind that the NCAA is rigged in favor of his employer.
The NFL is actually more unpredictable than that, even if thats not saying much.
the point of these college vs nfl threads is a loser meme by clempson fans
like that tired meme used before when someone's team lost, "oh, we only play for championships", clempson fans are coming out with, "oh, it's just a college game. it didn't mean anything unlike nfl games."
So what you're saying is that to be a head coach in the NFL is essentially to be a glorified baby-sitter. Because if you can't make personnel or package choices, and you're essentially put on a leash from your GM, then half of the duties of a head coach are moot.
This is why college and even fucking high school football is better than the NFL. Almost every franchise is a dick-waving contest between the GM and the Head Coach with the GM almost always winning despite being, in most cases, incredibly unqualified to do so.
>>64855111 >NFL is above college for playing, but not above college for coaching. Not sure I agree with that. Recruiting in college is huge. The best recruiters make the best college coaches, generally. We've seen enough college coaches fail in the NFL because they no longer have a roster that's substantially more talented than the roster they're facing. I think any good NFL coach (because there's plenty that are shitty) would excel in college, *if* they had a decent roster.
>>64861958 >doing meme bullshit with superior athletes recruited to your billion dollar university sports program is "innovative game planning"
Fuck the fuck off. You are a god damn idiot. Do you ever wonder why all the bullshit offensive schemes in college don't translate successfully to the NFL? It's because the richest schools with the most money grab up all of the top level high school recruits and throw them into their programs and make them play against a bunch of kids that aren't even close to their speed. Then they get to the NFL where they are playing the best players and suddenly all that meme bullshit doesn't work anymore because the players are smart enough and fast enough to expose it for the gimmick that it is. Think of all of the bust RBs and mobile QBs in the past decade alone that were all heisman level candidates? What do they all have in common? Superior athleticism, not some fucking amazing super innovative strategic game plan. Dumbass.
the only reason cfb is more "exciting" than the nfl (which is a purely subjective statement to begin with), is that the talent pool in the ncaa is pure shit
there's like 150 D1 programs, so the talent is spread out. even if the big power schools buy all the high school recruits there are roster limits, which is why you get a tremendous bust like trent richardson who was a monster in college and can't break 2ypc in the nfl
it's all meme offenses and trick plays in college because you have to be clever to overcome your shit players.
