As many sports fans know, we have had some great luck in having well done films about various sports over the years. It is hard to pick out the best, but once you narrow it down to just college football, it seems that it is a bit hard to even come up with a bunch of them off the top of your head. Try it. You might come across some other great films like 'Friday Night Lights' or 'Any Given Sunday,' one of which is about high school and the other takes place in the professional league. I love sports and film, and greatly enjoy when I am able to combine both in watching something. Movies are a great way for people to escape from their lives and sometimes watching something inspirational about a fictional football player is what we need to feel good. Other times, it may be the real life story of someone such as Michael Oher, who we all got to know through the Academy Award nominated film, 'The Blind Side.' Also, for anyone who starts to get a little stir crazy without college football to watch on television, movies about it of course are not the same, but it can help satisfy that urge sometimes.
With all of the great films about football, t is important to take a look back on some of the best films that many of us have probably seen and some may have skipped over. There have truly been some great films about college football in the past, and not made just for the big sports fans either. Many of these types of films have very inspirational stories that anyone can relate to.
