As a conference as a whole? No way to do that directly from Forbes data, they only list the top 20, no data for the rest of the teams. One could make an assumption, based on the fact that there are 7 SEC schools and 5 Big 12 schools in the list of 20. If one makes that assumption, then I guess you'd have to say that the top of the Big 12 is more valuable than the top of the SEC, but the "rest" of the SEC is worth more than the "rest" of the Big 12.

I actually found two things interesting. First, I was very pleasantly surprised to see Nebraska ranked 4th in the nation in value, and just as surprised to see that the Huskers out-value every team in the SEC.

Second, I find it pretty amazing that only ONE school in the entire (population-rich) Pac 10 makes the list at all.

With respect to the other post of mine - its kind of interesting that the oddsmakers who actually put money on the line (only one I've found yet publishing the odds on this) find it more likely that Texas, Oklahoma AND Nebraska could win next year's NC than Florida (or anyone else in the SEC except 'Bama!)
