Thursday links: ranks football teams

This is a great place to start daily links. has ranked the “most valuable” college football teams of 2013. A pretty interesting exercise. The most “valuable” Big Ten franchise: Michigan at No. 5. Next is Ohio State at No. 9; Nebraska No. 10; Penn State is No. 15; Wisconsin is No. 16. I guess I am a bit shocked that Ohio State isn’t No. 1 among Big Ten schools.
