It's just better than all the rest. I've said that before. Many articles and radio shows have been dedicated to this subject. Usually, all other comparisons just fall short or don't even come close to measuring up to CFB. You can vote here on this site if you'd like to disagree (or agree). In this article, Stewart sounds off on why the best game in the land is just that, better than all the rest (insert Tina Turner song here)! My personal favorites include:
a) rivalry games late in November. I mean come on, what's better than that? The Civil War (OSU/Oregon), the Iron Bowl (Bama / Auburn), Ohio State / Michigan, Army / Navy, Miami / VA TECH, A&M / Texas, and the list goes on and on.....Illinois / Northwestern - yes.
b) the people. From the players and coaches to the student sections and tailgates, the people who play, coach, cheer, watch, and otherwise support the greatest game in the land make it so.
c) tradition and pageantry. Name a sport that has more of either than CFB. Of course, some stand out more than others (flaming arrows of FSU, push-ups after Notre Dame TD's, etc...).
