    I know that it is easy to get caught up with the negativity in social media over transfers and arrests, but as fans we should look at the big picture. College football is a business, and for the Gators, business is good! Here are the top 10 programs in the nation in terms of revenue and profit:
    1. Texas A&M ($148M, $107M)
    2. Texas ($133M, $87M)
    3. Michigan ($127M, $75M)
    4. Alabama ($127M, $59M)
    5. Ohio State ($120M, $69M)
    6. Oklahoma ($118M, $72M)
    7. Notre Dame ($112M, $72M)
    8. Auburn ($112M, $61M)
    9. LSU ($112M, $56M)
    10. Florida ($111M, $67M)
    Now compare that list to the College Football News list of the 25 greatest programs of all-time. The criteria they used are: national championships and AP Top 25 polls since 1935.
