. . . (1) because college basketball is interesting throughout the entire game and not only the last minutes of the 4th quarter, (2) because the fans are usually invested in the product as students or alumni, (3) because the players aren't only going through the motions, (4) because of the electricity during the whole season not only the dreadful drawn out playoffs, (5) March Madness and tournament week, (6) it is not run by David Stern, (7) owners aren't constantly prying open my wallet for more cash upon more cash, (8) four year [maximum] eligibility always has hope for next year . . .
