Revenue Sports Decade in Review
Last week, we analyzed the last decade of ACC performances in football and basketball. There were some surprises. For example, Boston College in football and Florida State in basketball. But what does it mean overall? How about a ranking of the performances of all schools in both sports? Here you go.
The rankings of the ACC programs overall:
- Florida State (#2 in football and #3 in basketball) 5 points
- Virginia Tech (#1 in football and #7 in basketball) 8 points
- North Carolina (#2 in basketball and #7 in football) 9 points
- Miami (#5 in basketball and #5 in football) 10 points
- Boston College (#5 in basketball and #6 in football) 11 points (Yes, that is three former Big East teams in the top 5)
- Clemson (#3 in football and #9 in basketball) 12 points
- Duke (#1 in basketball and #12 in football) 13 points (The extremes)
- Maryland (#4 in basketball and #11 in football) 15 points
- Georgia Tech (#4 in football and #12 in basketball) 16 points
- North Carolina State (#7 in basketball and #10 in football) 17 points
- Virginia (#7 in football and #11 in basketball) 18 points
- Wake Forest (#9 in football and #10 in basketball) 19 points (Who else thought that Wake Forest basketball HAD to be the strong part of the program?)
Obviously, Florida State deserves props here. For all the talk about Seminoles fans being overly-arrogant…. scoreboard. Florida State is the best program in the ACC on and off the field. Mea culpa.
At the other extreme… whither Wake Forest? Perhaps the ACC needs to put up some billboards. At least do well in hoops, Demon Deacons. C’mon.
- Would you want your school to be like Duke (tops in one sport, last in another)?
- Or do you want your school to be top 5 or 6 in both sports?
- Where do you think Louisville, Syracuse, Notre Dame, and Pittsburgh will fit in?
