Best Answer

It's not because Americans thinks that NFL football is more important than a college education. It is supply and demand. More people will pay to watch a pro game, or companies will pay to advertise during a TV broadcast of game, than people will pay for a college lecture. Fewer people can play football at the pro level than can teach at the college level.
