Too easy is you claiming gymnastic championships. REALLY? Then there's the golf championship. That's desperate! I bet during no given year can you name any of the participants of these teams without the help of Google!

Desperate is clinging to the "three points away from playing for a national championship in 2005" statement you keep making.

I bet you would be wrong about that gymnastics statement.....my daughter was a NYS champion gymnast, I was flooded with Gymnastics on TV for 13 years no matter how hard I tried to get away from it.


BTW, Diandra Millner was the only Alabama Gymnast to score a perfect 10 during the 2012 National Championship season. She had another perfect score in 2014..... but that's not important. What is important is that Louisville is not one of the 12 most relevant teams in college football

I have told you, I am not a basketball guy....but that has to hurt having Kentucky rated above Loserville.

Get back to me when they win their FBS championship.

Hey number 18, MEET NUMBER 2! Come back when you all can actually crack the top 10.

Hey that's stupid.... we're going round in circles circles....

Stop embarrassing yourself, that's the same thing you posted a few pages back when you said Alabama wasn't even on the list.

NO 'BAMA!

I might add not to shabby for a 0 in two of the listed sports.

Are you sure Loserville is on the cusp of winning a football national championship with only a 150 rating in football?

That's a ZERO in sports that actually matter, not golf and gymnastics!

I wouldn't have even posted that! Talk about a desperate move! From now on, stick with the sports listed on that page. You know, the ones that actually matter! If it ain't on that list, IT DOESN'T MATTE!R! As it stands now, 'Bama AND UK are so far down the list that it will be decades before you all catch us!

Golf. Hell, if you took away the ball, it would just be walking!

OK, let's stick with those sports that matter

National titles:

Alabama: 15
Loserville: 3

You're right, it will be years before they catch you.

You're like a 10 year old sports fan..... always changing the things that matter in order to say your team is the best. Titles are all that matter.....and Loserville is behind by 12 in the "sports that matter."

Which goes all the way back to my main point. Alabama is a ONE TRICK PONY!

And just in case you misunderstood it, that chart shows the OVERALL rating of each college sports program in D1. It CLEARLY shows that Louisville's athletic program is light years more successful right now than 'Bama's. Now I know that hurts but that's the reality! It's there in black and white! Look at it! Don't shoot the messenger, damn the statistics!

You act as if that is some scientific research that CBS conducted. Win some National Titles and get back to me. Bottom line, titles make a team successful not being with in 3 points of playing for a title.

Number 18 seems to be a little upset with number 2! Check out the formula used to get your score. Even with that formula, 'Bama still has a weaker athletic program than Louisville. You follow your team during one part of the school year. I have something to root for all school year long!

The wild-card spot went to the most successful among the school's following spectator sports: softball, men's lacrosse, men's ice hockey, men's soccer, wrestling, volleyball, women's soccer or women's gymnastics.

For our formula (which takes into account only schools that field FBS football programs): we weighed football with a triple value, while men's basketball is worth twice as many points as the other sports that are part of the formula.


With that given formula, one would think that your 12 titles would rank you pretty high on the list but the truth of the matter is that one trick ponies can only do, well... one trick.

I know, it hurts. Shoot me your address. I'll package up some black and white cookies for ya'. Make sure that you partake of them in moderation. I don't want to get on your wife's bad side for causing you to fall off of your diet program.

Yes you are correct....CBS has it all figured out and Alabama has decided to close their doors.

BTW, please please please stop embarrassing yourself. Alabama has 15 football National Championships not the 12 you cited in this famous sports ranking article.

You could live to 100 and you still won't see Louisville with a football national title.



Auburn 47 Louisville 10

In 2005 we were 3 points away from playing for a national title

12 or 15, it doesn't matter. You're still the number 18th OVERALL athletic program in the COUNTRY compared to Louisville! Did I mention that we are the number 2 program IN THE COUNTRY? I did mention that, right? Hey number 18, I did, right? Hey, how cold is the air down there at number 18?

You hang your hat on that and I'll hang mine of National titles.

Hey here's an idea..... print a poster and t-shirt highlighting that #2.
