Total Five-Year Program Score: 127.76

Always known as the million dollar program without the production in the big games to match, that all ended in 2005 when Texas had, according to the CFN Season Rankings, the greatest campaign in college football history beating nine teams that finished with winning records, beat a great Ohio State team in Columbus, and got by an all-timer of a USC team to win the national championship. The production has kept on rolling as the Longhorns likely would've played for the national title in 2006 had Colt McCoy not been hurt late in the year, and they deserved a shot at the whole ball of wax last year.

With eight straight ten-win seasons, the juggernaut has been consistent, dominant, and efficient when it has to be. Brown has always been able to bring in the talent, and he owns the fertile Texas recruiting grounds, at least as much as possible, and he has more NFL stars waiting in the wings. The APR, for a school as good as Texas, is a bit low, but the rest of the scores are off the charts. The 32 Quality Wins are the most in college football over the last five years by three over Oklahoma and Florida and four over USC. Only USC has more Elite Wins, and only USC and Oklahoma have won more conference games among the BCSers. Can the Longhorns get to another national title game and stay in this spot? The 2009 team is good enough to make it happen.
