If you need a reason as to why college athletics are better than those offered by professional jocks, the argument is now officially over.
Spare me the "I want to watch the best athletes in the world" argument.
I'm watching the Tennessee / Florida men's basketball game, and sitting in the stands is former UT quarterback and Superbowl XLI MVP Peyton Manning.
And UT Football coach Philip Fulmer.
But if that's not enough, Pat Summit (the UT Lady Vols Basketball coach) is dressed in full cheerleader regalia (I mean real cheerleader uniform, not sideline-tramp getup). This is in response to Bruce Pearl's (the UT men's coach) chest-painting at a nationally-televised Lady Vols Basketball game.
Two other coaches.
A campus legend.
If you want pure spectacle... pure entertainment... pure fan-experience, you gotta go with the college game. You like passion? You like athletes playing every game as though something were on the line? You like to watch a football game and hear the sound of a marching band, rather than some jackass pushing the button for Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll, part 2?"
The college game is where it's at.
