The best college football programs

Check out the Dow Jones College Football Success Index. The index ranks each college football program’s contribution to the professional football by measuring its alumni’s performance in the NFL, popularity in the NFL draft, and NFL draft value (the quotient of performance and draft popularity).

The results are pretty interesting, if a bit rough (the creators didn’t control for a number of factors, like player injuries for example).

Florida State, Florida and Georgia take the top three spots in terms of performance, while Miami, Georgia and Ohio State are the highest in terms of draft popularity. North Carolina, Auburn and Virginia were the top three from a draft value perspective. Southern schools dominated the top ten in all three categories.
