Why do you not have a College Junkyard Wars

I believe ratings would be great for you, and also good for the colleges. If you agree then Kansas State University will be there. All othere prolonging series have college editions.

Might have something to do with non-americans not quite understanding this college competitive thing.

When I went to university (in Canada) we had a good hockey team. There were times when only 300 people would go to watch a free game. The competitive nature and the "patriotic" idealism just didn't make it.

One of the things I've enjoyed the most about teams is their colaborative natures. They skip the war part and make it a challenge. The less of a compitition and the more of a fun filled personal challenge make it interesting to me. Go Art Attack and NERDS!

As again already stated its the non-American thing. I myself would love to see the University of Florida's college of engineering kill FSU. Good ol'rivalry would boost the ratings.

Remember the Young Guns?? They were pretty young.

Great idea, It would be great to see some of the larger engineering schools go head to head. I attend the Georgia Institute of Technology and I am sure we could field quite a team!!

Do you think that your special and cant compete with the grown up like every one else!

I imagine they have enough trouble getting 'competeant' teams for the regualr show, much less trying to skim from their current pool. The college kids can compete on the regular show if they wish (but have to be 21 I think)
