I know exactly what you're talking about. You just can't get it through almost any euros about the magnitude of college football. The UK is probably the worse.

Yeah. He’s totally amazed at the scope of the whole thing - the size of the stadiums, amount of fans, and the pageantry of it all. But I was proud they showed us at all, and especially with the band playing Neck!!!

Surely they could found a clip that didn’t involve that embarrassing song.

Weird that they would be that surprised. The Camp Nou (Barcelona) hold 99,000 so it’s not like it would be inconceivable to them.

Unless the skepticism was due to university sports (not pro) being that popular.

They look at American football like we look at them and soccer.

I think soccer is so fricking boring but it’s the most popular sport worldwide by a pretty significant margin.

I don’t get it.

Soccer is easy to understand for the masses with limited rules (ie basically offsides).

American football has a ton of rules making it hard for non-US sports fans that didn’t grow up with the game to understand.

I’ve had countless conversations with German friends, British friends, etc that ask me to explain the rules to them (not the other way around) that are generally interested in learning and appreciating the game because they are sports fans at heart.

It's really the only time the crowd sync's up and is doing the same motion all at once. Other times we're just yelling and being loud. Stadium looks pretty cool when everyone is doing it.

This is what it is....they don't even really have competitive college sports...and here it's bigger than pros...hell our college sports are bigger than their pro sports

And requires no equipment so the very poor can still play.

Football is expensive as hell.

I can't get into a sport where 2-0 is a blowout.

I also started getting into football quite late, after graduating from college. It's great when at some point in your life a new hobby appears.

CFB is kind of an anomaly. 13 of the 22 Largest Non-Racing Stadiums in the Entire World are CFB Stadiums. Not to mention that most from that group are in small to medium sized cities like Tuscaloosa, Aubrun, Athens, State College, College Station, etc.
