college football

Okay, probably a dumb question from a dumb American, but do Canadian colleges have football programs like we do in the US? I know there is Canadian league football, but don't recall ever hearing about Canadian college teams. Just curious is all. Thanks.

Not a dumb question, we have college football, collegiate athletes just don't get notoriety here like in the states.  With the lack of coverage it isn't at all surprising that people would question the existence of said league.

Our university / college sports programs are only a small fraction of the US programs in terms of funding, alumni, etc.  Our football crowds are on par with the US high school numbers, just as an illustration.

Hell, Michigan (?) was able to sign Jim Harbaugh to coach for a few million $ - his salary would have likely equalled the total $$ available in Canada for college football!

Note:  Harbaugh made $9 million last year.
