Forbes' "Best college teams for the money" (Posted on 12/19/12 at 3:20 pm)
quote: To find the best college football teams for the money, we looked at each team’s three-year-average of spending per win, using the most recent financial data made available by the Department of Education (2009-10 through 2011-12) and the three most recent seasons played, not including this year’s bowl games. Our methodology operates under the rationale that much of one year’s spending contributes to the following year’s on-field performance. We limited our scope to teams that have been members of an automatic-qualifying conference for the last three seasons, and we adjusted each team’s win totals to reflect a 12-game schedule to account for conference championships and bowl games.
