    According to Payscale.com, the universities in the Big 12 rate as follows based on the Mid-Career Median Salary of graduates:

    1. Texas A&M - $95,000
    2. Colorado - $94,300
    3. Texas - $91,300
    4. Baylor - $90,800
    5. Iowa State - $85,300
    6. Texas Tech - $82,100
    7. Missouri - $82,000
    8. Oklahoma - $81,300
    9. Nebraska - $80,900
    10. Kansas - $80,800
    11. Kansas State - $79,300
    12. Oklahoma State - $79,000

    In addition, CU ranked in a 4-way tie at 15th in 2008 among all BCS football programs for NCAA Graduation Success Rate with a success rate of 75%. Texas A&M grads may earn slightly more money, but only 56% of their football players actually graduate.

    Here's the Big 12 ranking for NCAA Graduation Success Rate:

    1. Texas Tech - 79%
    2. Baylor - 78%
    3. Nebraska - 78%
    4. Colorado - 75%
    5. Kansas State - 67%
    6. Oklahoma State - 62%
    7. Missouri - 59%
    8. Texas A&M - 56%
    9. Iowa State - 55%
    10. Kansas - 52%
    11. Texas - 50%
    12. Oklahoma - 46%

    If you were a parent, which Big 12 football program would you want your son attending when you consider the likelihood of leaving with a degree and the value of that degree?

    Go CU!

    Especially considering CU recruits majority out-of-state, where tuition and fees for the nonresident are in the neighborhood of $30k a year.
