Sorry Billy, they didnt rank them past 51st.
So, CNNSI.com has done some research, crunched the numbers, and created the list of the greatest sports programs of the 2007-08 sports year. And you get some of the typical programs at the top: Arizona St., Stanford, UCLA, UNC, Georgia and so on. But, here are a couple schools that also made the list that might suprise you:
University of Denver: 23rd overall
Western Kentucky: 26th
Sacramento State: 37th
Eastern Kentucky: 51st
Thats right, CNNSI, after crunching the numbers and adding up national/conference titles plus Top 30 national finishes, they figure that Louisville, Western, and Eastern ALL had better years than UK. UK beat the national champion is football, made the NCAA baseball and basketball tournament, won a bowl game, and somehow one Sweet 16 appearance moves WKU ahead of the Cats. You all know how much of an idiot I am, but explain this to me please.
