There has always been a debate over whether or not the best college football team in the country could beat the worst NFL team in the league if they two squared off head-to-head. With the 2016 Alabama Crimson Tide and the 2016 Cleveland Browns, you likely couldn’t find a closer margin either way.
During an EA Sports game simulation between the teams as they stand today, Alabama not only beat the Browns, but spanked them 34-0.
Now the actual argument is somewhat ridiculous, as a pro teams contains well 63 pro players, while a college team contains only a handful. Of course when it comes to Alabama, there’s bound to be a much higher rate of players who play in the NFL, but the size disparity, skill differential, sheer lack of expirience and unfamiliarity with pro-level schemes are surely in favor of the NFL team.
