What colleges are best for a major that will result in a sports management job?

I've been looking into things about a sports management major and have found out that almost all who graduate with this degree end up with a low paid job and only rise up if lucky. I'm nuts about baseball statistics, trades, free-agent signings, and all that jazz and would like to end up (definitely in my late future) with a job as a scout or general manager of an MLB team. The SM major has been said to be sort of bogus due to the fact that much of the material being taught is not relevant to the specific field that I'm looking into. Would it be smarter to major in Business for a more general learning experience? Business would also help as a backup just incase sports doesn't work out, but I feel completely committed. From my research, these are the top schools in the field: - U of Oregon - UMass - UMich - Ohio U - U of S. Carolina - Indiana U I've heard that UMass is the top choice so far, but correct me if I'm wrong. P.S. All of these schools are OOS (I live in California), so if there are any in California, please let me know.
