CU Ranked as College Football's #22 Most Prestigious Program

Interesting read, I thought the ranking was fair.  ESPN made up a formula for teams from 1936-present, awarding point for things such as national championships and deducting points for things like NCAA violations.

"T-22. Colorado Buffaloes
Total points: 486
Positives: The Buffaloes were a powerhouse in the '90s, when they kicked off the decade with a national title in 1990 and later had a Heisman winner in Rashaan Salaam (1994).
Negatives: Colorado has suffered through five losing seasons this decade, with only a single bowl win (the 2004 Houston Bowl vs. UTEP). Colorado has also suffered through five penalties from the NCAA (costing it 25 points, including nine this decade).
Through the decades: Through 1958: 39th | 1968: 43rd | 1978: 36th | 1988: 44th | 1998: 22nd
Did you know? Colorado has has 30 consensus All-Americans (14th-most), more than Florida and Georgia."
