There is a movement afoot about creating a European Super League that will include every known powerhouse teams including ManU, Barcelona, RM, Bayern, and others.
What I found interesting is in this article about the Super League, the author compares Super League to College Football;
With its pervasive, barely hidden tribalism, European soccer has always had more in common with college football than any of its pro-sports counterparts in America. (In case you’re wondering: Yes, Manchester United is Texas.) The sports also share a similar infrastructure. NCAA football has the Power Five conferences: the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC. Soccer has a clear group of five elite leagues: England’s Premier League, Germany’s Bundesliga, Italy’s Serie A, Spain’s La Liga, and France’s Ligue 1. If you think of winning a domestic competition as a more meaningful version of collecting a conference title, then the Champions League is European soccer’s version of the College Football Playoff, an imperfect-but-wildly-successful-and-money-printing knockout tournament between the best teams in the sport.
If Texas is the Manchester United of college football, who is Michigan's equivalent? (I am thinking either Liverpool or PSG)
Some of my other comparisons:
- Alabama is Barcelona (self explanatory)
- OSU is Real Madrid (buys all the best players)
- USC is Bayern (benefit from unbelievable home-grown talent)
- Clemson is Man City (relative upstart who is dominating)
- Oklahoma is Chelsea (a lot of fire power)
- Nebraska is AC Milan (once glorious superpower)
