Taking Stock of a Different Market
The Wall Street Journal took a little detour into the dark and dangerous alleys of our beloved sport and devised something called the "College Football Success Index." We won't bore you with the details behind this rankings system, we will simply spell out the result: Florida State. Yes, the Seminoles rank at the top of the list of teams with successful "alumni" in the NFL. Other items of note: Oklahoma ranks 27th and Alabama 29th, behind such teams as North Carolina (10th), Texas A&M (15th), Washington (19th) and Virginia (22nd). Last season's BCS title game participants didn't score all that well. USC is 14th and Texas is 16th. Nebraska, the Trojans' opponent on Sept. 16, ranked 13th. And Notre Dame fans, your team didn't even make the top 10! Thanks to Kevin.
