Only big surprise on that list for me is that USC is relatively low at #16.

I'm a little surprised that Arkansas is as high as it is. Only thing I can think is that the money might go further there, which might also explain that USC [and also UCLA] are lower because of higher costs.

LSU at #8 with a cool $504.2 million. Why are those 4 schools excluded?

Guess they didn't report enough financial statements to the researcher.

I was a little surprised at how high Northwestern is, given its struggles historically with W/L records and attendance. I guess the new conference TV network, along with other B1G revenue, helps.

USC plays in a stadium owned by the state, which might play a role in it not being in the top ten. UCLA has a similar situation, since Pasadena owns the Rose Bowl. Both teams' values should increase with the new PAC-12 TV revenue.

Well, for $805 million, my Texas Longhorns haven't been gettin' much bang for the buck these past two years.

Hopefully that will start changing this Fall into 2013.
