On or off the field: which is more exciting?

I am starting to think that one reason for college football's appeal is that what goes on off the field is so interesting.  Donnie brought up the conference realignment in the other topic, and that reminds me that the scheming and background stuff that makes it either very shady or exciting (depending on whom you ask), but intriguing at the very least.  Other sports don't share that same kind of off-the-field excitement.  For example, the MLB isn't that interesting off the diamond.  Neither is pro football, etc.  Just college football.

College football is extremely corrupt.  However, the things that make college football corrupt (recruiting violations, media deals, academic cheating, and fierce conference competition for limited resources) are not an issue in the pro ranks.  They only worry about scandals and individual antics.

Even if Trump were to be revealed as the Dark Lord of the Sith, he's still better than the last four presidents we've had.
