In the world of college sports, football and basketball are the top dogs.

One conference might excel in football while not doing so well in basketball or vice versa.

The third tier is composed of a variety of other sports. Baseball/softball, soccer, hockey, lacrosse, track and field, swimming, golf, rugby, tennis, etc. Maybe not as important as the big 2 but a valuable bellwether of a good sports program as a whole.

So which Conference, as a whole, is the most competitive outside it's league and why?

I'm going for the ACC.

Their basketball programs routinely advance in the tournament and frequently win the whole thing. Out of conference record is also favorable.

Football is top heavy with a handful of elite teams and then a bunch of bottom feeders. The ACC is respectable for the most part in Bowl Games but hasn't won a National Championship since 1999.

The other sports are what makes the ACC shine. Perennial contenders in Field Hockey, Men's and Women's Soccer, Lacrosse, Tennis and with the addition of Boston College now a hockey power.

Cant speak for the other sports outside of football and basketball but in my opinion the SEC is king. Who has a better conference in football than the SEC? No one, that's who.
Basketball, SEC will be back on top this year in that too. With perennial powerhouses like my beloved UK Wildcats and not so loved Florida and even more hated Tennessee. SEC will be a nightmare for opponents.

Didn't realize how right my prediction would be for Sec basketball in 2014. At one point the SEC was 4 and 0 in the big dance. Then 2 teams in the Final Four. Now my beloved Wildcats have a chance for their 2nd NCAA championship in just 3 years.

SEC Basketball did exceptionally well this year. Way better than the Atlantic Coastal Conference. The Atlantic 10 had more teams in the tourney than did the ACC.

Well anyway, UVA is at or near the top in college baseball right now. Nathan Kirby of the Cavaliers just pitched a no-hitter! Applause

Congrats to Kentucky. They didn't have the best regular season but have been stomping through the tournament. A brother of mine met his wife at UK and they are both grads so you know they're stoked!

Can't wait for football to start! Drooling

Hey Jeremy!

It's the University of Virginia versus Vanderbilt right there in Nashville for the College World Series! Would you be interested in a little friendly wager?

If the Wahoos win then you have to rock something like this in your signature for a week:


If Vandy wins then I'll put their logo in my sig for a week.

What do you say? Starts tomorrow, Best of 3

Even though I live in Nashville, I am not a Vanderbilt fan. I am a fan of the University of Tennessee Volunteers (it's been a depressing few years across all sports for me).

But hey, I would still be willing to place the wager.

Yeah, I know you're a Vol's fan. I am a UVA fan but I would still be rooting for almost any Virginia team (except Virginia Tech Sick ). Vandy is your local team - (By the way, why isn't UT in the CWS? Devil ) plus it's SEC vs. ACC.

It's all good! Just some friendly competition. It's best of 3 so could be over by tomorrow.

Thanks for playing along!

One game to decide it all. Which of us will be sporting a special logo in our signature for a week?

Wahoooos!!

I'm not surprised it is going to 3 games. Both teams are really good.

Here I had to open my big mouth! Big Grin It was a great game and a great series. Well, at least it's only for a week. Does anyone else want to bet on something with me? You are guaranteed to win. I could pick the Seattle Seahawks to beat Sister Mary's School for the Blind and those near-sighted nuns would run roughshod over them! Loser Wall

It was a good series. Congrats to Vandy and Virginia for great seasons.

If you betting against a team is what it takes to make a winner, then please bet against the Tennessee Volunteers, Nashville Predators, and Tennessee Titans. I am so tired of losing.

It might be a good idea to start placing money against your Redskins too.

No doubt in my mind that idea would backfire! Laughing

I'll see what I can do to help your Tennessee teams. Big Grin
