ESPN Top 2-Sport Schools

ESPN just compiled a report based on the last 5 years of the Sagarin Ratings to determine the best football/basketball combo schools in the nation.  Texas, Florida, and LSU are 1, 2, and 3.  UCLA checks in at #26.  Quick, guess why we're rated so low (relative to our expectations).  Done guessing?  You're wrong.  We're ranked the 22nd best football school in the last 5 years, and the 42nd best basketball school.  Haha, WHAT?  Man, the damage Lavin has done.  For some perspective, here are the 5 schools that are ranked above and below in basketball:

37 - Oregon
38 - Washington
39 - UAB
40 - Michigan
41 - Clemson
42 - UCLA
43 - Iowa
44 - Vanderbilt
45 - Virginia
46 - Arkansas
47 - Missouri

It makes sense now that I think about it, we only really turned a corner last year, but wow that was a shocker.  If we had Howland for the last 7 years, we'd be ranked around 3rd or 4th overall for sure.  Well, at least we're ranked 2 spots higher than sc, despite their #1 football rating (they're #65 in basketball).  This also flies in the face of those who say we're just a basketball school.
