Getting To The truth About USC's Claims Of Olympic Glory

My friends and I got into an argument about which U.S. University (public or private) has PRODUCED the most Olympic gold and/or overall medal winners. The debate ended in a stalemate, and I went home to do some research on the topic and cannot find a credible source of information on the matter. I personally believe it is UCLA, but USC seems to claim the title. See here. However, USC's claim is inflated because they are counting Olympians who chose to attend USC AFTER they won their medal (which means they obviously did not PRODUCE the Olympian, they only received them), see here in paragraph beginning with USC's Olympic tradition.

In contrast, over at UCLAbruins.com, UCLA seems to be in a tight running for the title, but the site lacks updated information from the last two Olympics (2012 and 2008) see here.

To top it off, it seems no resource I can find online includes medals won in the winter Olympics.

Can anyone help me out by linking to credible resources? A lot of UCLA pride is at stake here.
