SEC domination continues up to Christmas – including Forbes’ ‘Most Valuable Team’ List.

In the magazine’s ‘Business of College Football’ issue, LSU was the top team in the SEC – although the Tigers were still behind Texas, Michigan and Notre Dame.

Forbes estimated that the Tigers had a value of $102m, with football revenues a cool $69 and total profit $45m. That’s a pretty good return on the investment.

Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, Auburn and Arkansas were also on the list. Texas A&M slipped out of the Top 10, but is expected to return next year after a bowl game, and someone called Johnny.

The Top 10 list in full (with valuations):

1) Texas – Total Valuation $133m

2) Michigan – $120m

3) Notre Dame – $103m

4) LSU – $102m

5) Georgia – $99m

6) Alabama – $95m

7) Florida – $93m

8) Auburn – $85m

9) Tennessee – $84m

10) Arkansas – $83m

Also on the lists were Nick Saban, Steve Spurrier and Les Miles on the ‘College Football’s Most Powerful Coaches’ list. We think Les Miles will be a little up the food chain after his recent raise!
