    Big 12 - 2
    SoCal - 2
    Big West- 2
    ACC - 1
    MVC - 1
    WCAC - 1
    SEC came very close to a sweep this year of the big 3 sports Championships; Football, B'ball and Baseball. SEC didn't get the Baseball title this season but has dominated the CWS over the last 10-20 years Had not all the SEC teams been placed in one bracket except for one team, I don't think anyone would have seen Arizona win ten straight games. Don't get me wrong, Arizona did have the best Baseball team this season. Of course, when it come to the BIG one, College Football, the SEC owns it!

    Franco - programs are judged by their all around excellence -

    1 - Stanford
    2 - Florida
    3 - UCLA
    4 - Ohio State
    5 - Florida State

    I remember when the Big 10, Minnesota's Golden Gophers specifically, were the rage around the country - so it is a cyclical thing. So as Dback says - back to adult beverages & immmediate family intimacy for the SEC fans - shades of "God's Little Acre"

    better check your stats...since 1992 the SEC has won 7 NCAA Baseball CWS....West coast teams have won 8 CWS in that same span....must be that revisionist history you keep talking about

    Haha, your sense of humor is entertaining

    SEC vs west coast schools. What if I used your logic and clumped schools in the south vs Pac 10? Colleges like Miami and Texas/Rice from a state that fought with the Confederacy.

    A strong case could be made that they weren't even the best team in the state of Arizona......they certainly weren't the best in the PAC. That would have placed the pride of the sec......oh.......somewhere's about a mid level PAC team.

    Which sport are we talking about here Marv? Certainly, not Football though Florida is in the SEC!

    Baseball? Find me a program that has won more since 1990. Here's a hint, they reside in the SEC.

    Football, Six in a row, which Conference has come close to that dominence?

    And just so you now, we were talking Baseball.
