Wasn't one of the main reasons Jimbo left FSU that they couldn't pay his

assistants enough to keep them and refused to update the facilities to keep up with the competition? They have fallen off bigtime and, at least from what I gather, their aging facilities and lack of resources are a big reason. Clemson, OTOH, really opened up the wallet and invested in their program and it has paid dividends. There are other schools that could do that too, as you note (UGA being one of them).

Texas has more $$$ than all of them combined; their issues are almost entirely self-inflicted. I'm not sure about USC, tbh. They had a lot of dirty booster money flowing in when they were on top, but it was short-lived. Reggie Bush living in a $5 million beachfront condo wasn't because of the school's athletic budget!

I agree Saban would win anywhere, but most places couldn't keep him. He's at Bama because it's the best job in football, and they decided to stop trying to give the job to their alumni. They have invested more money in facilities than most of the schools on your list have.
