With the college football season starting Thursday, the Wall Street Journal made a grid rating every major college football team on how good the team should be this season and the amount of shame it has brought to its fans.

The shame scale factors in NCAA rules-related scandals, player misconduct, financial state and academic performance. BYU is rated better in the powerhouse rankings than U of U, but the Utes are considered more admirable than the Cougars, according to the Wall Street Journal grid.

Vanderbilt is considered the most admirable school on the list with Stanford shortly behind. However, Stanford is considered more of a powerhouse than Vanderbilt.
