Southern Cal was ranked 33rd or 34th....one spot behind UCLA.

It's been awhile since I saw the list but I remember USC was in the thirties.

I think the reason some of these schools are high could be because the expense it takes to fly out of local airports. Also the distance from "talent" would greatly increase a universities expenses. For the #1 school Tennessee, I would think there wouldn't be a whole lot of division 1 talent around Knoxville. So they have to travel. For a school like Ohio State or USC, much of the talent is right there in state, which could be part of the reason their expenses are low. All I know is 6 of the top 10 teams are in the SEC. So when it comes to being number one, they've spared no expense.

In USC's case, they have to go no further than densly populated Orange County to find their recruits. I would think very little flying is necessary.

Where the hell is Oregon? I was surely expecting to see them in the top 5 in this category. Since someone took away their private jet to ferry recruits in and out of town, I can understand that. But whatever happened to those big $25,000 checks to agents etc.?? huh?

Ooops... there they are nestled comfortably in the #18 spot. A modest showing. Keep in mind that a lot of those are Nikebucks thanks to their benefactor. If not directly then indirectly for sure as a result of increased revenues across the board at fancy new arenas etc.

What this basically means is the programs are targeting athletes (male) that would rather "play" with the athletic gals rather than going after the sorority type.

Does Auburn's number include how much they paid Cam Newton?

Maybe it's just my fertile mind that thinks these things when prompted...
