Fat City: Part One

Who says Notre Dame doesn't have the money to buy out the remainder of Crewcut Charlie Weis' contract? Michael Rothstein of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette has the scoop on Forbes' list of the most valuable college football teams.

The winner is Notre Dame, worth an estimated $101 million. If our math is correct that works out to roughly $50.5 million a victory in 2007. ...

Notre Dame's $9 million lead over Texas ($92 million) comes from its $9 million contract with NBC, according to Forbes.

Next on the list: Georgia ($90 mil), Michigan ($85 mil) and Florida ($84 mil). Twenty teams are ranked, so check it out.
