New York might not be considered a hotbed of college football, but on Tuesday night it was the place to be.
Writers Buzz Bissinger, featured in the video above, and Malcolm Gladwell debated broadcaster/author Tim Green and columnist Jason Whitlock on whether college football should be banned. Bissinger and Gladwell argued for abolishment, and by the end of the night had won over the packed house at New York University's Skirball Center.
The audience was polled beforehand and only 16% supported a ban and 53% opposed it. By the end of the debate, 53% favored a ban and 39% opposed it. The undecided vote, which was 31% beforehand, was only 8% at the end.
