Clemson's Trevor Lawrence has goal of being best quarterback ever

Clemson's Trevor Lawrence has goal of being best quarterback ever Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has long wanted to be the best ever. But Lawrence, even after starring as a freshman, says he isn't there yet.

Over the last 4-5 years, the top two college football programs have been the Clemson Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide, with everyone else far behind. You can imagine, then, that each school is raking in serious revenue befitting such success.

And yes, both programs are. But Forbes has just released its top 25 most valuable programs based on revenue and profits, and the school coming in at No. 1 probably isn't one you were thinking of.

Coming in at the top spot in overall revenue? The Texas A&M Aggies.

High School Football Player With Greatest Name Ever Explains Story Behind it

High School Football Player With Greatest Name Ever Explains Story Behind it Okay everyone, we would like to announce that the contest for the Greatest Name in the History of Mankind is over. Thank you to everyone for participating and congratulations to our winner: De'Coldest ToEvaDoit Crawford. You can call Crawford's name unique, but legendary is probably a better way to describe it. The high school football player spoke to 247Sports to talk about the origin of his now-viral name. HS football player De'Coldest Crawford explains story behind his name. ❄️ https://t.co/XA056ZBRykpic.twitter.com/gzhv6dzsn4— theScore (@theScore) September 3, 2019 "My mom came up with my name," Crawford said.

Yup, I was shocked, too.

Alabama ranked fourth behind A&M, Texas and Michigan. Clemson, on the other hand, comes in all the way down at No. 25.

The big reason why the Aggies averaged $147 million (!) in football revenue over the past three years is because of their significant alumni and booster contributions, mostly related to construction expansions. These hauls are likely to plateau and/or decrease for Texas A&M in the coming years, but we know how much the folks in Texas love their football.

Dabo Swinney does not think Clemson deserves No. 1 ranking

Dabo Swinney does not think Clemson deserves No. 1 ranking Dabo Swinney is not here for the rat poison the media is trying to give his team. Swinney’s Clemson Tigers began the year as the preseason No. 1 team. 

I'd imagine Clemson will continue to go up in these rankings, as they have steady revenue streams that will ony get bigger in the years to come if Dabo Swinney keeps winning. Deep-pocketed alumni will surely show their support with some serious money in due time-- but it will take a heck of a lot to even get within striking distance of the Aggies.

Leach shared his thoughts on the matter in a press conference Monday, which was highlighted with a quip about how “California has trouble keeping their streets clean right now, so my thought is they probably ought to focus on that.
