America's Most Wanted: Power Ranking the Top 10 Problem Child Programs in CFB

College football is a business. But since it is also a sport, it is a business where winning means everything, since wins eventually translate to dollars. 

With over 100 schools competing for the 10 spots in BCS bowl games, and the millions of dollars in revenue that they generate, corruption runs deep in the blood of college football.

Among violations schools have committed:

-Ignoring crimes by players

-Paying off recruits or coaches of recruits to influence decision of college choice

-Recruiting student-athletes with severely questionable character (players that wouldn't get into the school if they were a normal student) because they are talented football players

-Paying players for good on-field performance

-Illegal benefits and gifts provided to players

And all that's just scratching the surface. 

The dynamics of college football change yearly as new sets of players move into the national spotlight. Some teams have a tradition of winning. Others have a tradition of getting into trouble.

A few fall into both categories, because once you start winning, its hard not to lie, cheat and steal to get yourself back to the top when times are tough. 

What follows is a list of the 10 college football programs that have been in the spotlight the most for their transgressions—both on and off the field.
